Robert Half required me to sign many documents electronically through a vendor called DocuSign. DocuSign creates the documents on its own server, and you can download them as .PDF documents. I have done this many times without a problem. I completed all the documents yesterday for an assignment to start in 2 days. I can see them in my browser and opening my .pdf document viewer on my desktop. (I have two - one is Windows 11, the other is Ubuntu Linux. I was able to view the .pdf views on both.)

My recruiter called me to say the documents could not be opened. I sent my own links to the documents. He stated the "administrator" still had an issue, and would I please do it again? I went through the new documents this morning, and again completed them, and could view them, etc. I asked for confirmation from my recruiter the documents were okay on RH's end. He confirmed, but later said the administrator could still not open the documents. So I have now withdrawn from the assignment, not just because of the DocuSign issue but other issues -- among other things, I still do not have a W4, I9 and direct deposit forms for my state. Most temp agencies include these as part of the package, but RH did not. In my polite note to RH, I pointed out that I had successfully completed the forms and I can view them on two different laptops, and if they have trouble viewing them, that is not my problem.

Initially, they act like they care about you to get you to go through the long, stressful process to become an “eligible employee”. You get placed on an assignment and have issues, so you attempt to address the issues - they act like it’s your fault - even though there was not sufficient training. So now you’re miserable going into your assignment each day AND have no support (although they guarantee they’re there for any issues that may occur). My assignment mutually ended between myself and the company contracted with Robert Half.

I finally got a call from someone advising that “I was a top candidate and top on their priority list to find another assignment for”. I reached out to them multiple times over the last few weeks (via phone and email) with no response. I took matters into my own hands and got a wonderful job that I love going to every day. I completely deactivated my “profile” with them, and won’t make the mistake of utilizing them again for a job. Please, do a little extra research and spend a little extra time finding a job on your own - it isn’t worth utilizing Robert Half!

    Was given company to work for and training provided, was there approximately maybe 1 full day and let go. I phoned Robert Half agency right away, in parking lot left voicemail with Eric Lea still as of today no call back. No sufficient training given. I advised supervisor at interview I did not know system would need training. Very strange on both sides - Robert Half, Eric Lea and Hach, Janis **. Wouldn’t recommend either.

    This review is regarding Robert Half Staffing, RH has really gone way down from what they use to be when I first started with them. The recruiters they have working there are VERY unprofessional! If there's a problem or issue they run and hide, won't answer emails, voicemail or texts. They're rude, have no class or respect. But they want you to be top-grade, top-notch! It's ALL about the $$$.

    These people need better recruiters. Mine hired me then a few days later wanted to contact my references for bureaucratic ** nonsense. (Spoiler Alert: References come before being hired.) I told her I respected their time too much to drag them into such **. They are marketing agency owners! She told me I needed references before starting work. I told her if I lose the job, so be it.

    This was the second time their bureaucratic ** made an appearance. Their in-person ID verification is a joke when everyone else on the planet is finding ways to do SIMPLE things online. Apparently, it's a joke that is easy to circumvent. So, knowing this is the Robert Half norm, I told my busy clients not to worry about responding. Probably just another stupid requirement that can be easily circumvented. But when Kristen ** (idiot recruiter) got my email, she did not respond... Until two days later when she asked if I completed my first assignment. Honestly, what the flying **!?!

    I submitted application, was contacted by Ms. Jasmine ** (Jasmine ** Sourcing Specialist, Strategic Accounts/Healthcare Talent Delivery Center/ who indicated that she had found a position for me with a company in Arizona and that based on my experience I qualified for the same. She even indicated that if I had any questions to feel free to contact her, she provided her phone number. She indicated she would be sending my resume to the company, Waited a few days called Jasmine, LVM, no response, sent her an email, no response other reps were sending me the same info, about the company who was hiring, but they couldn't move forward as she had already contacted me, called her again, lvm again, sent her another email and no response.

    Decided to send email to the other Rep (Jeffrey **/Sourcing Specialist - Contract Talent/Company Number: ** Extension: ** / Direct Number: ** / that had contacted me to see if he could take my case to move forward with the application and no response either. I also received e-sign documents from: (Estefania ** - RH Financial Services Delivery Center).

    I sent an email to Jasmine asking to explain this to me and if I needed to fill these forms out and no response again. Decided to fill the documents and send them back and till this day, no response from anyone of these mentioned here. So, if you are looking for a Job DO NOT bother with this company because they will NOT DO anything for you or respond to you to let you know anything whether is good or bad. Communication is Key, no matter where you are at. We consumers look for these companies at times because when you are unemployed it gets to be very over-whelming and we need help finding a job.

    I tried to use this company to help me find a job in a specific job market. They not only IGNORED emails, they would make empty promises about following up, calling and sending applications. The people are nasty, disrespectful and unprofessional. Specifically the recruiting department in the Legal field. The recruiters were not punctual, and would say they'd call and then forget and never reach out. This company sucks so much, if I could give it 0 stars I would.

    RUN RUN RUN... HORRIBLE!!!! Company to be associated with. They make promises that they cannot keep, the temps are supposed to get paid every week well that changed as of Dec. 2022. Now it's every 9 plus days, it took 2 weeks for me to get paid for the week of 12-19th. When you call to inquire about your paycheck you are treated as if you're stealing money, they speak to you rudely, unprofessional manner, refuse to answer any questions,, they send you an automated response via email. Never mind trying to get any answers.. There are other Temp agencies out there, do some research..

    Trash company. Don't expect anything useful from them. Stay away from them unless you think you got too much time to waste. They are very rude and unprofessional, like they never reply to your messages despite being seemingly interested in you.

    I hired Robert Half a few years ago to hire an employee. We paid $15K for this service. Just found out that this long term employee is leaving for another position. He did not request this position from Robert Half instead, he was approached by Robert Half. This is quite unethical practice. Thanks Robert Half. Can I have the 15K back now or will you find me a replacement employee?
