Temporary Worker (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 March 2018
I enjoyed the work that I did with Robert Half/ Office Team. As I proved myself with the company they were able to find work for me most days. I mostly worked long term assignments (minimum 1 week assignments). It afforded me a variety of work, and I learned a lot in the different offices that I was assigned.
Not knowing if I was working next week (next assignment)
I enjoyed the position and the people I worked with. I learned a ton from this company. Management was supportive and let us have enough free reign to get our jobs done. I found compensation a little low and didn't agree with some of the strategic decisions that the management took.
Overall good place to work if you enjoy metric based work.

Each work assignment is interesting cause you get to meet new people and work in different locations. You can learn lot of different experience in workload. The greatest part you can learn new skills and show off your skills with co-workers.
Business Development Manager - Team lead (Current Employee) – North York – 7 July 2015
Great corporate culture, where you need to be able to work independently while working within a team environment, no 2 days are ever the same as you need to be very organized in order to juggle multiple tasks at the same time in order to be successful
Sr. Consultant, App Development (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 8 April 2015
Depends on the field of work could be very stressful or fun. The job culture is great, and most people are great to work with. My office had a lot of fun activities that most employees participated in.
Administrative Staff (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 March 2015
Everyday there was a job waiting for me. Office temping really suited my life style in a city that I wanted to see every part of. I had a great time meeting new people at all the engineering firms they really made it easy for me to settle right in and get to work. The management team at Robert Half is fantastic they allowed me to complete courses that grew the number of jobs I qualified for and I can still take that experience with me. It was a challenge to fill in at the last minute but I still enjoyed the hustle.
A lot of effort required to follow up on potential job opportunities.
Office Administration (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 February 2015
Some good job opportunities though needed to be diligent and follow up daily with various "Staffing Managers" who were on duty to assist with potential jobs opportunities. Received regularly weekly pay when working though most job assignments are temporary and short. Long term assignments were hard to come by.
Different AP/ AR , intermediate accountant postings for different temp and contract positions
Various Temporary Contracts (Current Employee) – Burnaby and North Vancouver – 29 January 2015
The typical day is to check the priority of work duties.
Start on the most time pressured job and multitask on work which requires time to come back to you with information. Then work on routine tasks.
For AP postings, seek authorisation, postings in QuickBooks, contacting vendors and clients for payment's and reconciliation of vendor statements, bank and visa statement reconciliations.
For AR and Billing postings, preparation of billing summaries for projects and invoicing, analyse aged debtors listing, reconcile sales ledger statements and AR collection.
Intermediate accounting posting involves both AP and AR procedures and ad hoc projects such as preparation of budgetary reports, audit checks on receipts, grants and donation and reconciliation, assistance with compiling and checking all are in order for audit purposes.
Other duties in general include cashier duties, petty cash reconciliation and bank runs.
Worked with intercompany transactions including a non profit audited organisation. Also to work with stringent protocols and suggestions in improving them to achieve efficiency and accuracy.
Even though the co workers are working mostly independently within the department, the result of one's work is often a continuation for the others so it is important to check and make sure that the combined effort is optimised and satisfactory.
Opportunity to work and experience work culture and habits within different organisations
