    I have been working at Robert Half part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, tons of opportunities to work in new environments and different industries, potential to create a large network

    Cons

    Sometimes the calls for work just don't come in as some parts of the year are slower than others. I find I'm either booming and working all the time or sitting around for weeks at a time waiting for a call

    Advice to Management

    I actually think management does a great job. Whether or not business is slow for their clients is not their fault. I know they try their best.

    You get paid weekly. They find you employment fast. The company actually trains you. You can put the experience in your resume. They pay for training.

    Cons

    It’s a temp job with limited chances of going perm. But you actually know that from beginning. Don’t have high expectations of getting the position as perm. Enjoy the time; that’s all!

    Advice to Management
