    I have been working at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    A lot of training. Good experience.

    Cons

    Only care about your recent performance even if prior performance was strong. No investment in employees.

    Have more loyalty toward your employees.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    They found temp to hire positions quickly and were very supportive of my professional direction. Very positive group of recruiters.

    Cons

    Sometimes painted a more pretty picture of employers to get, in my opinion, candidates to take positions they were on the fence about.

    Advice to Management

    I would definitely recommend accounttemps to anyone with little experience that is looking to break in the accounting and finance industry.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to gain a ton of experience in different industries and with various software, which will help with future employment.

    Cons

    They are going to low ball your hourly rate. You'll make about $20-$28 per hour but they charge the company that contracted you more than double! I know my current contract is paying $62 and hour for my services but I make less than $30! You will be micromanaged on your hours because your placement recruiters commission is on the line if you don't log enough time each week. The benefits are decent as far as coverage but expensive. I pay more than $185 per month just for health insurance in myself! And that's just medical! God forbid that you get sick because they don't want to pay you themselves. They want to make sure the contracted company pays your salary, taxes, benefits and they still make a 40 % profit after that. Find something else!

    Great team that works hard but also don't take themselves too seriously. Headquarters management was very supportive. All Lead Administrators within a reasonable office radius cover for each other when needed.

    Advice to Management

    none i can think of
