Commission Auditor - Walton International (Former Employee), calgary – May 28, 2012
Pros: exposure to big companies
Cons: low salaries
It is a client oriented company where managers and staff forget that candidates are as important for the business as their clients.
In my experience managers were disorganized, I received a complaining call because I was supposed to show up in a client's office when I never received the assignment and I got the notice after I stop the person on the – more... phone and I aware her about what happened. When I was finishing my assignment just about to start my maternity leave I received another call asking me if I was willing to change job and start in a full time position right away. – less
Nothing for months (Former Employee), Mississauga – May 9, 2012
Cons: no actual full-time career opportunities
If you have experience and an education in your IT field, and you do your research and due diligence and apply for a job that your qualified for.....expect them to downplay your qualifications and experience and ask you to ignore that career opportunity (which would be a perfect fit not only for you, but for the employer looking for that qualified individual – more... as well) and take a low paying contract position instead. – less
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – September 15, 2014
Cons: cfo was not very truthful - manipulative and unprofessional!
I was hired as a "temp to hire" for a non-profit, via Office Team/Robert Half. I was advised that they did not have any employees on staff who were bilingual and that I would be a great asset to fill a vacant position. When I arrived at the job site, it was a SURPRISE to the current and bilingual employee who had the position, that she was being replaced! – more... It was a hostile take over, and we (the temps) were put into an uncomfortable position. I in no way wanted to be associated with such a dishonest company! If they did that to their loyal employees who had been there 7+ years or more, they would have done it to me. I relinquished my position and the Office Team/Robert Half recruiter was so unprofessional! If she would have done her job and found out the background information on the company, then it would have been a nice temp position, but unfortunately, it turned into a nightmare! Not very professional Office Team! :( – less
I've meet some pretty good people at this job who I am still friends with today but since I was a temp employee, you didn't get treaty fairly at all. They will have parties right in front of you but you were never invited. You got invited to eat the left overs. Keep in mind this was a job through Robert Half not Robert Half itself. They were great the – more... job I was assigned wasn't. – less
All employees are professional and welcoming. They are very good at discovering your strengths and matching your preferences with the positions they have available. They are organized and seem to genuinely care about the people they work with.
