I have never had such a bad experience with how unprofessional this recruiting team is. From false promises to endless paperwork... I am an educated and experienced professional that was informed of specific jobs available. I followed up and was eager to learn more. Instead of telling me that I wasn’t qualified for the position, or that it wasn’t available, or for any reason the position wouldn’t be a fit... which would have been the right thing to do, they led me on with false promises. Then completely ignored any phone call or email I would send it then as a follow up on my part. A simple “We don’t have anything for you at this time, we will keep your resume on file” would have been just fine. Horrible horrible professionalism. Do not go through them, it’s all about money and their bottom line. FYI - I never write reviews for anything, my experience with them was that repulsive.
They will have you fill out their paperwork time and time again. Perhaps send you a link to one or two jobs. Which you will apply for, because that's why you're there! You will then never hear from them again. And once you've gotten fed up with waiting, you will call back and they will pretend they don't know you and want you to fill out their paperwork once more. This cycle repeats thusly. Never in all my days have I been so irritated by incompetence as I am with Robert Half. It really is a miracle that they stay in business.
My company used Robert Half back in 2016. The talent they sent was to be frank short of talent. This temp employee did more damage to the company than any of the worst employees we have had since its inception. After having ended this relationship more than a year ago, the company persits to contact me. I have on record, more than 20 times now (Repetitiously) told its representative to delete my information COMPLETELY from their directory. Yet, it never fails, I am still constantly harassed by them trying to push their candidates on us. Get the hint, Jack, we are not interested!
Recently used RHL for a clerk/assistant position. The employee they placed with my firm was completely incompetent and reckless to say the least. This individual spelled our firm name wrong on numerous notices sent to opposing counsel and also on multiple occasions sent the wrong attachment and case file to the wrong party thereby breaching confidentiality. The straw that broke the camel's back was when this individual called in and processed their own payroll with Paychex. They were paid hourly and accordingly without approval or notice decided to call Paychex and pay themselves on the first of the month. This was not customary or normal in the form and the issue with Paychex is something I'm dealing with separately. Shocking to say the least. NEVER AGAIN will I use Robert Half Legal and they wanted me to pay them 10K to hire them temp permanently. What a joke! I'd given them zero stars if I could.
I have worked for Robert Half for years off and on. My experience used to be much better with them. I relocated and needed to keep steady work. My work experience is over the top excellent. I contacted Robert Half, which I had worked with in another state. The jobs they gave me were all low paying. I found out, because I always said yes and needed to keep working, they were giving me the low paying jobs instead of higher paying jobs I actually qualified for. I was getting the ones less desperate people turned down for higher paying jobs. Even though they knew I was in trouble with my rent, etc. over and over, they gave me the riff raff extremely low paying jobs. Once I told them I can now only take higher paying jobs, there was no response to my email. I guess they felt they lost their fall guy.

Before I begin my review I'd just like to second all of the negative reviews about RH on this site, as sadly those reviews resonate with my experience using RH. I am a fresh accounting graduate. I decided not to do public accounting as it was not the right fit for me at all, so I figured I would go corporate. I lack the accounting work experience for most entry level corporate jobs in my area, so I struggled finding accounting jobs to apply to. Except on RH, where most of the jobs on RH's website seemed to fit my level- recent accounting grad looking for work. I applied to three jobs on RH's website where I felt I met the qualifications. I now suspect that those 3 jobs I applied to where false because when RH contacted me back no reference was made to those three jobs at all by the recruiters. Not even to say that those jobs were already filled.
After I applied to those three jobs on their website, I get a phone call from a RH recruiter approximately two weeks later after I applied. She calls at 10:15 in the morning saying she'd like to conduct an interview via FaceTime at 1:00 the same afternoon. I agree to the FaceTime interview, and the RH recruiter says she'll email me some skills tests to take, preferably before the interview. I agree to take those tests, so I take the tests and secure a quiet area where I can have the interview. The recruiter called me at 1:00 for the interview, which was more about finding out my qualifications than anything else. The skills tests never come up. I give them my desired pay and geographic area. The recruiter agrees that my desired pay and geographic area reasonable, and she assures me that she'll be "by my side" for the whole process.
After she says that though she passes me off to another recruiter, who I will call recruiter x. Recruiter x says she can get me working this week, and I express interest. Recruiter x tells me about the position, and says she'll arrange for a phone interview with the client for the next morning at 9:30 AM. Recruiter X will call back "as soon as she can" with more information, so I "need to keep my phone close." I keep my phone close for about 3 hours, and recruiter x finally calls back confirming my phone interview with the client at 9:30 the next morning. I am not supposed to bring up my accounting degree or even mention the word accounting at all during the client interview. I got a bad feeling, like I was being played, but I agreed not to mention anything accounting in the client interview.
After I finish the client interview I am supposed to call recruiter x back ASAP. Well when I have the phone interview with the client I am asked about why I chose accounting as my degree. I'm kind of confused about why the client is asking me this, but I give an answer that seems to satisfy the client. I got the impression that the client was desperate to fill the job, and after the client interview I call recruiter x like I am supposed with the goal of backing out of the job. Except recruiter x isn't at her desk and I have to go through the receptionist to leave a voicemail. Recruiter x gets back chides me for bringing up my accounting degree (even though the client ASKED me about it)! She then assures me that it's OK that I don't want the job after I tell that I don't want it, and she says she'll call me back as soon as can she can with another job.
Two hours later recruiter x calls with a job that isn't in my desired geographic area... so where did paying attention to my needs go? Where did the recruiter who is "supposed to be by my side" anyway? I'm confused and when I express hesitation at this new job recruiter x has, she gets confrontational and rude with me launching into a rant about how expressing some hesitation is bad and not appropriate. She then says that temping may not be good for me, and that she looks forward to me calling her back tomorrow with my answer as to if temping is good for me or not. After that call I'm stunned, hurt, and really upset. I don't know what to make of the situation. I consider my bridge burned with RH and move on trying to look for other opportunities.
A week after the recruiter x issues, the recruiter who was supposed to "be by my side" calls me with a potential job around 8:30 AM. I express mild interest and the recruiter says she'll call the client right after she's done with me and that she'll get back to me ASAP. I wait for about two hours with no response. I don't hear back until 2:15 PM and this time she tries to push a job on that me that is in a different location than the job mentioned in the 8:30 AM call. I tell the recruiter that I'm not interested and that I am currently pursuing other opportunities external to RH (which is true). The recruiter says she'll take me off the RH system, and we both verbally agree that if nothing pans out I'll come back to RH in a few months (this was in August).
Well less than 24 hours after that I get a "Summer Check In" email. The following day when running errands I get a phone call, but I'm driving and I can't get to my phone. When I park at my next destination I see a RH recruiter has left me a phone call, a voicemail, and a text all within one minute of each other. A little desperate much? The next week I get contacted by a pushy RH recruiter who tries to push a perm position on me (that I am not qualified for), which ended up being a waste of my time.
Starting in late September I now receive duplicate emails full of grammatical errors from RH every other week. I don't believe these jobs are real because often times the words are just changed around from a prior email I got. Here's the bottom line: If you choose to work with RH prepare to be given a runaround, deal with disorganization, and treated like dirt. Just don't waste your time. Find an employer that treats you with respect, even if it takes many months. You're better off looking on your own than using RH.
I called Robert Half in Westwood, CA about my needs for a job in the software field. I was told to send my resume and that the recruiter would call me back. After four days I had not received a call back so I called the recruiter and asked that he call me back. I waited a week and called again. This time the receptionist recognized my voice and was rude and condescending acting bothered to do her job by transferring me to the recruiter. Again, I got a voicemail and left another message asking that the recruiter return my call.
I never got a callback after another week, so I called and asked to speak to the manager. I was told that there was not a manager to speak to. Coincidentally, the recruiter called me back. He said he would let me know if he saw anything that I qualified for. I never got any referrals from Robert Half during my two month job search. I found places to apply and got interviews on my own. I found a job without any response or help from them. Don't waste your time with this company. The recruiters are lazy.
I went the Akron/Canton, OH office twice. I was hesitant the second time because I had a few bad experiences with that location along with a few others. However, against my better judgement I went anyway. I explained to the recruiter my past experience, (never getting a callback, feedback or return email). She assured me this wouldn't happen with her and that she keep me in the loop. She even had the nerve to bring up a comment her pastor had made in church the previous Sunday to assure me. I never heard a word from her.
I realized that the majority of their listings are fake. They copy and paste ads from company websites and from job boards into their site. They cold call the company with your resume as a way into the company. If they don't get in, you never hear from them again. RH is very unprofessional and careless. I am a supervisor and often in the position where I need to hire staff. I would never use Robert Half knowing their tactics. Obviously they aren't sharp enough to realize they are shooting themselves in their own foot.
I had a face-to-face interview with them. They had sent me an email confirming the meeting details. When I arrived there on the given time, I was made to wait for 20-25 minutes and then a very junior employee of this company came to chit-chat with me. Later, the Senior Manager who was supposed to meet me arrived and interacted with me for less than 5 minutes. He was in a rush. It was awful. Later this manager promised me to provide the feedback after sharing my resume with one of their clients within a week (being it positive or negative). I tried calling them several times but he never returned my calls or replied to the emails. Please don't waste your time.
I had a phone interview with them. They are ridiculously terrible, awful. They couldn't care less about you. They just want to get their commission, or quota to fill that job. You initially hear from one recruiter, then another, and another, just giving you the runaround. Please don't waste your time. I don't know how this agency stayed in business this long. They are a joke.
Robert Half is the most unprofessional, laissez-faire, bunch of incompetent people I have ever had the displeasure of working with. I got a call back in February because I had decided I wanted to go back to California. They told me I had to be living in that area. One problem: Why do people move to a place like California? Because they have jobs, right? Does the word "Relocate" mean anything to Robert Half? No, it apparently doesn't. Like I said, I can't afford the rents, but that meant nothing to Robert Half.
Whatever you do, DON'T EVER question their fake arguments. Oh my God, don't. I told them that I had every intention of relocating with my mother and I got told that I had to have the place first (because it's easy to afford rents when you have about $100 a month to live on after rent in Nevada, cell phone bill and paying for your storage area, right?)
Go on an array of different boards and you'll see dozens of complaints about the day-to-day operations (the ones on Indeed are particularly virulent) and you'll find out that Robert Half is totally faking it. They get positive reviews from the 5-10% of people they actually care enough about to try to get a job for. The other 90-95% are left to die. The people in Ontario had me go through 14 different recruiters (yes really), one of which levied multiple criticisms against me including, wait for it that it would have been better if I had lost weight (this is illegal in California), and all-in-all, trying to work for this company is like that State Farm guy dangling a job in front of you then saying "Oh, you gotta be quicker than that! You almost had it!"
I started with the Robert Half Tucson office mid January of 2018. I was surprised with lack of professionalism shown by the Tucson office over and over again. From stating a salary level that I should be able to make with not one single job in that parameter. I had to settle for a position that was $40,000 less than what we talked about. The Tucson office did a very poor job communicating any new leads or other jobs outside of public accounting I might be qualified for. I even took my complaint to their corporate office in California and all I got was a lot of lip service. I would never recommend Robert Half to anyone who is looking for a recruiter as they did a very poor job representing me. I still look back at all my saved e-mails and laugh at the lack of follow through!
I originally worked for Robert Half as a data migration technician back in 2003. Me and another individual from Ohio worked together to migrate some 200 laptops for Citizens Bank. We completed the project on time and I received no complaints about how I dealt with the customer or my job performance that I am aware of. I also worked on another small project that involved connecting a server. I did this job on my own and although I made some mistakes, I realized it before I left the site and corrected them.
Over the past few years, I have sent about a dozen resumes for jobs I have seen posted by Robert Half. I never received a single response. I have now sent a dozen or so messages to their customer service "robot" asking if I have been blacklisted for some reason given the total lack of response by any of their recruiters. The only response I get is an invitation to have my resume critiqued.
I sent my resume and nobody responded. I tried twice to contact one of their recruiters out of their Paramus, NJ office about a Field Service position with one of their clients in Parsippany. I left a voicemail this morning that went un-returned. I called again at 11 this morning and was told he was in a meeting. If they're ignoring me, which obviously, they ARE!!! I would appreciate it if they would just tell me. Is it something I did or said? It's frustrating enough trying to find a job without being totally ignored by a headhunter who makes money by submitting you to their clients.
Working with the Akron/Canton offices started out great. I was a fresh graduate and needed help getting my first accounting job. I am a people person, and interview well, I just lack the work experience so far. They helped get me an interview at a place that ended up becoming my first accounting job. The boss who interviewed me loved me and told the accountant recruiter that they were excited to hire me.
After starting, making friends with as many people as I could at my new workplace, and working hard to become an asset to the company sooner, my boss came to me and complimented me profusely. I was told I am working hard, and quickly, and about how months down the line I'll learn this and that, and month ending stuff. My boss would tell the RH recruiter how much they are looking forward to hiring me on as a full time employee and not just a temp anymore.
My boss finishes complimenting me, I say I'll continue to work hard, and I get back to my work. Ten minutes later my boss returns, says my services are no longer required. I ask why and was told I don't need to know, it comes from higher up. I am escorted out, call my recruiter, and they tell me they just heard and are in talks with them about it. I later find out the job lied about me, saying I was demeaning and rude. RH recruiters say they must believe them over me, even though the recruiter who has been the liaison has been told by my boss at that job how wonderful I am, during the interview and on the job.
A week passes and I reach out, wondering if they will continue looking for a job for me. They assure me they will. Akron office contacts me, asks if I want to be a recruiter. I say I am more interested in being an accountant but I will listen and consider it. I wait for more information, or an interview, but nothing ever comes from that again. I am contacted by another for a Skype interview. After hours of waiting I get an email saying they had computer problems and if we could try tomorrow. I say tomorrow is great, anywhere between 10 AM-12 PM. I get no reply and wait from 10-12. I email them asking if they had more computer issues or if the time was bad for them. No response.
The last straw came when I was emailed by a Canton office recruiter for great accounting jobs I was really looking for. The issue is they were addressed to someone else. My name/email starts with a J. This persons name starts with a J and it was addressed to them. I reply and ask if the name entry or email entry was an accident, and that I would appreciate my resume being forwarded to these job opportunities which is what I've been promised when I signed up for RH. I attached my resume, which they asked me to do (or asked the other person to do), and have heard nothing from them. It seems to me they have ghosted me, are treating me poorly, and are accidentally sending me jobs I want but addressed to someone else. If it were just one person acting this way, one outlier, I could cope. This is multiple recruiters from multiple offices.
I've used Robert Half for ten or so years, both for temporary and permanent positions. I've always felt listened to and even if not placed by them, felt I could always go back for other placements.
They are extremely unhelpful, unprofessional and desperate. After a few ups and downs and thanks to Robert Half being disorganised I finally started a temp role which was below my level of experience. I then started applying for permanent roles that's more my level. The chap from Robert Half Southampton gave me a 30 min lecture on how I should stay at this temp role and pretty much how it's no point applying for the role I wanted to apply for. Two days after he phoned and emailed me on other opportunities?!! So he lectures me about not leaving the current role I was in then emailed me with other opportunities. He has not stopped hassling me for weeks and weeks now. Phone call upon phone call. Clogging up my inbox.
I've not worked for the company where I was a temp for 3 weeks now and he's still hassling me with regards to a timesheet there?? Does he not know I've left especially getting a replacement temp. I blocked his number and just had two phone calls from a mobile number and then two emails from two different people from this agency to call them urgently. I'm absolutely livid and wish I could complain to the CEO of this company. Just awful.
I have noticed that no one from SC has posted a review. I was interviewed via Skype by a Robert Half recruiter in Charleston, SC. It may had been two weeks when I got a call from RH to go to an in person interview with a company that is in the same town I live in. Which is about 20 minutes outside of Charleston. I didn't think they were going to have anything close to me so I was delighted when it worked out that they had a company here looking for someone. I went to the interview. I was told by the recruiter that I should know something by the next day and I did. They offered the position to me. I started working there through Robert Half in February of 2018 and the company hired me in April. It is a great company with sick leave, vacation days, 401K, insurance etc. Not to mention, they pay very well. I do go in at 6:30 in the mornings and don't get off until 5 or 6 but they don't mind paying the overtime and I am happy to accept it.
I would not have been able to work for such an employer had it not been for Robert Half. They got me in the door, I proved my worth and I got a permanent job. I am very appreciative to Robert Half and the staff at Faber Place in Charleston. I hope this review helps someone considering Robert Half in Charleston, SC as their agency.
I have worked temp with the company for over a year on at least three assignments of about three months each. It is not like the old days where a temp job could turn into full time. The interview and background check and interview was relatively painless but I feel like I must have as part of the process reviewed over 200 pages of online docs. I give them a total score of 20% simply because while the recruiters were relatively positive, I ran into problems with the timesheet, payroll and working conditions. On each job I was temping for an outsource agency like WL or DTI, within a law firm setting, but amazingly each position I ran into in my opinion an overall lack of training or software and at one place hostile and abrasive work environment. Sometimes a temp is given less than adequate training perhaps because they think you will only be there a few days, but such denial of training works against the smooth work output.
RH of course is just concerned with getting paid and could care less about working conditions but nevertheless, someone in this picture has a legal responsibility to assure a work environment free from harassment and discrimination. Training on each position I would put at 40% simply due to either lack of training, confusing communications, lack of software, or hostile work environment. To me lack of training creates a hostile work environment. Numerous times I had to fight to get the timesheet software to work and at least one time I was not paid on the regularly scheduled payday even though I turned in my time sheet a week before. I did have to threaten to file a labor complaint. Communications, teamwork, and accuracy was sorely lacking at all positions, I further give a low review when questions about work procedures are ignored.
At all positions I did the best I could but I felt hampered because they gave me limited duties or I did not get good training. One last thing: it seems agencies like to communicate by email and cellphone, which I may have little choice in the hiring process. But once you are on the assignment, I feel the RH should be able to communicate work issues like duties and payroll to you at the work site (client) and on their equipment; using your own time or personal cellphone means you should get paid for that time; one recruiter who placed me at a site said he did not know how to get in touch with me other than my personal email, but of course he had access to the work site email and phone. If I am placed on a site and have to use my own phone and my own time, and cannot use company equipment, then I should get paid for that time and my cellphone.
If I could give them no stars I would. They act like they are going to help you in the beginning but nothing ever comes of it. I was told to sit back, relax and they find you a job but you get no calls, no leads, or followups. It's a good thing I didn't listen to them and ended up finding a job on my own. It has been 6 months since I submitted my information to them to assist me in finding a job, and nothing. When I followed up with them they ignored emails and never got back to you. I feel like they are just there to collect a paycheck and forgetting just how important their Jobs are. I guess they feel once they have a job it doesn't matter who else around them doesn't have a job. Which defeats the whole purpose of their job. Do not use them and if you do keep looking for jobs on your own.
I heard good things about OfficeTeam from a friend so I thought I would try it. The staff was incredibly unhelpful. It took weeks to get even one job offer. I would have to constantly contact Office Team to get anything going and without me pestering them they would do nothing. In two months they managed to secure me two interviews. I managed to find a permanent position paying more than their temp to hire jobs would pay before they even bothered to call me with a third possibility. I said that I would still be interested in other positions, but have never heard back from them. Additionally having to do go through grueling interviews and waiting weeks for an extremely low paying temp job seems a bit out there. It takes more work than just going straight to a permanent position.
I just want to second all the negative reviews about Robert Half. Robert Half is a big chain --- think Appleby's of Temp agencies --- everything is centralized, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. My experience was with the Burlington, MA office. Incredibly rude and unprofessional people. They send emails filled with job listings screaming for you to respond quickly and tell everyone you know... yada, yada, yada... then they don't answer the phone... or act annoyed that you called... or the person whose name is on the email is nowhere to be found and no one else can help you. Everyone in the office goes to lunch at the same time. It's all smoke and mirrors. There are no jobs here... it's all an Orwellian illusion.
I was going to sign up with RH to assist me in my current career search. I'm under the impression they post jobs that they are representing just to get your CV on file when there are actually no jobs available. You then take time off work to meet with them, shake their hand and never hear back from them. I was also advised that if I sign up with another recruitment firm they will drop my file. In my opinion, if you see a job posting by RH there is probably a 10% chance they have a company that is looking for a candidate and a 90% chance RH is just trying to stockpile resumes. Be cautious! Lastly, Robert Half, in the future if I am in a position to employ a headhunting company your group will never be considered.
I have been working, and I use the term loosely with Robert Half Dallas (Downtown branch) for about 3 weeks now. I originally only had a short window of time before I would be unemployed and was candid about this from the start with both Amber and later Morgan. Originally they did not have anything suiting my criteria but after about 10 days called me regarding a position as an Admin near me for immediate hire with the salary I was seeking. Their client wanted to first speak to me during a phone interview, THEN meet me in person for an Admin position. A bit much don't you think? Anyway I obliged and when the initial phone conversation was supposed to take place the owner of the company called me to say that he was SO BUSY he had to reschedule for the next day and couldn't take only a few mere minutes to speak with me.
I agreed and we were scheduled for a phone interview for the following day. So I sat there at the designated time. And waited. And waited. He never called. After 15 minutes past, I called my recruiter, Amber (before she passed me off to Morgan) and let her know he never called me. She apologized for him and said she'd contact him. Another 15 minutes go by at this point and he's already 30 minutes late for the phone interview. He graced me with my call 30 minutes after the fact with some insincere apology that sounded more like a justification and said he was so glad my recruiter sent him an email because "time got away from him". I'm glad my time is so valuable to everyone. And an email? You were too inconsiderate to even pick up the phone and say call her for the phone interview? Wow you guys are just phenomenal at what you do.
The business owner and I proceed and FINALLY conduct the interview (I'd also just like to point out, isn't the entire point of a staffing agency to place you in a position NOT make you interview as if it's a direct hire?!). The phone interview proceeds for an unreal 45 minutes where he even tries to get information as to my recommendations for where he should source his potential candidates from and even repeatedly refers to people from his ZipRecruiter ad as "garbage". After giving a notable interview I knew I had the position. I had researched the company beforehand, made notes about specific questions he may answer and gave thorough and direct answers. He tells me he'll contact the agency that afternoon and let them know his thoughts. The recruiter finally calls me back and I can tell although it wasn't obvious from her tone that he chose to pursue someone else.
I asked her why and the only answer she could give me is he wanted someone who was more "aggressive" for the position that I'm frankly overqualified for. About another week passes and I get a call from another office in Irving from Shelby. Shelby informs me there is a position in Irving starting immediately that is exactly what I'm looking for, but they want me to come IN PERSON to interview for a 3 month contract position. (Again, aren't they supposed to place me?!) I told her I would be there. Prior to the interview I researched the company, brought a notepad with my notes and questions to ask to appear as though I was actually interested in the company and arrived 5 minutes early. Once the interview began it was not a one-on-one typical interview, no, no, no it was 3 INTERVIEWERS. One they claimed was the manager, one was "observing" and the other I'm not quite sure what she did.
Again I nailed the interview and they solidified my thinking when they made comments such as "good answer" "I like that question", etc. I walked out feeling very confident and called Brittney (who I was passed off to from Shelby at the Irving office). She sounded mildly enthused and said I would know something by the following afternoon. Of course they never called me so I had to call Shelby and get an answer from her myself. All she would tell me is they went with someone else they gave her very little information and she'd call me if she found something but the way she said it sounded more demeaning and like a blow off than anything. I was sick of this and decided to call back both Amber and Morgan to see what was going on. Both AVOIDED my calls! I called one of them twice leaving one voicemail and even emailed asking her to call me.
They never did. So now in 3 weeks I've been on 2 interviews, wasted time, gas and with nothing to show for it with them. Luckily I didn't fully trust them to find me something so I have been applying before, during and after my Robert Half experience. I will find something soon but I can guarantee you this it sure as hell isn't because of them!
I worked for Robert Half for close to two years as a contractor paralegal and/or legal assistant and never to get hired as a full-time employee. They always used me as a temp. The last assignment they sent me on was for an attorney in Family Law. She was extremely difficult to work for and the assistant's place I was taking was leaving because of her attitude and said she was awful to work for. I was there for only a week and was told not to come back because I was unprofessional. At the same time, the Recruiter that I was working with Robert Half was fired. I had no idea what was going on.
They never had any contact with me. I called, emailed and text and finally I got an email from the new Recruiter that said they would no longer be needing my services. I did absolutely nothing wrong and had always remained professional at every position. I told her do not defame my character or try and make it out that it had anything to do with me. Robert Half at the point is not worth your time. You are better off finding a position on your own. They are the worst!
Extremely rude, arrogant and they talk to you as if you are an imbecile that "needs" them. Seems like I am not the only one here that felt this way. Two recruiters approached me within couple of weeks. They did not care if you are working or whether you can talk freely. Their time is more important than yours. Plus they talked as if they are doing a favor by talking to me. I make far more than most of those recruiters there yet I was talked down as if I am nobody. They have no intention of working with you or working for you. They do not have your best interest at heart. They want you at their disposal like robots who won't complain or challenge them in any way. Seriously being the leader in consulting, I expected better from them!
They insist on you signing a contract even before telling you anything about the opportunity, the pay involved or the commute, benefits, etc. I chose not to sign and they basically shut me down. I quote "I’m reluctant to take an hour of unpaid work to interview you if you’re this unsure." "Unpaid work???" I wasn't unsure - I didn't agree with terms! There is a difference but bullies don't understand that, do they? I will not work with them. If I am ever in a position to hire (which will happen in near future) I will not hire them.
When I signed up with OfficeTeam, things went well for a while. I signed up with the Westwood office and got a few temporary long term jobs, although I didn't like dealing with Sheena **. But I moved to the valley and wanted to work in the area so I signed up with the Woodland Hills office. I dealt with Sabrina **. She offered me jobs that were like fantasy jobs with travel and great pay - jobs that seemed way above my skill level but being very hungry for a job I said yes to them all, to absolute no avail. I never got a call back or a follow through to any of the jobs that were offered. I thought it was very shoddy of them to do that.
I was contacted by Soojin **, a recruiter of RH (Philadelphia, PA). She was extremely aggressive, rude, and disorganized. I was caught off guard when she called me again about a 1-5 job, for 12.00/hr. She again harassed me about my resume, my work experience, and other petty issues. I called back to speak to a manager, and was put through to Jonea **, who it turns out is a lawyer. I don't want to go into a lot of detail, as I am planning a legal action, but she is horrible, and has no people skills. Do not do business with this company. They are deceptive, and treat people like dirt.
I went into work the other day only to find out that my contract had “expired”. Apparently someone from office team was supposed to reach out to me last week to let me know. I got zero notice and because this is a temp agency apparently I have no legal rights when it comes to getting severance or notice.
I signed up with them last year and was only called once for a inventory job for a clothing store. It was for 4 hrs. I had called them many times and was given the runaround. That's only if someone answer the phone. Most of the time I had to leave a message on a recording. No one called me back. The funny thing is I would see jobs listed on other sites from Robert Half (Office Team) needing clients to fill clerk positions which I am overqualified to do. I am retired and over 50 and ** so it could be ageism or racism or both. Not happy with the way I was treated.
The recruiters are very push and wants you to take the first job that you're offered. If you don't take the offer then they tend to back off a little and I wouldn't hear from them as often. I would email them to check in for jobs and they wouldn't email back. It gets very unprofessional on their side. When I didn't hear back after a few emails I would call the recruiter and she would speak to me as if I was her child (very rude). So I emailed her manager Kevin and the manager above him. After talking to him I thought he was going to help. He told me to contact him direct and he will work with me. So I did and he's never emailed or called me back. Super unprofessional... Very disappointing at Jacksonville office.
