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.

    We engaged the company to provide recruitment services for Germany. Although we had a global agreement with specific terms for the region set in place they claim to have no idea about it. Additionally, when you constantly follow up by mail there is no reply, not even a "sorry, we've been very busy" or "sorry, we are still discussing internally", anything that shows a slight sign of respect. If you then send a mail saying that you will escalate the response they suddenly reply (it's a miracle!). If you contact one of their consultants by LinkedIn/XING they also ghost you. It's as though they do not need further business because they're too good.

    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?

    I used them in Houston to hire an administrator person. They charge more than any other company and give guarantee which as it turns out is bogus… After hiring a seemingly qualified person… It became clear very quickly that this person was not only incompetent, but not very bright and insubordinate. The person was not qualified the way that they had promised, was hopeless at administration, kept getting things confused, made lots of mistakes and couldn’t take correction. Basically a mess. When I went back to get them Replaced consistent with the guarantee that they had made, They refused to honor the guarantee and charged me for all the time that this Incompetent candidate had spent with me. In other words I paid over $10,000 to them for an incompetent person and they didn’t make it right. I wouldn’t use them again if my life depended on it.

    Do not expect any kind of professional curtesy, service or follow up. Managerial staff members are very unprofessional as they do not return messages or follow through on completing intakes for registering you, etc. I have tried to reach them for months by phone and email and cannot get anywhere. By the tone of the other reviews, I guess I am better off not working with them. THEY DO NOT CARE! Very Disappointed!

    At first everything went well. I was prepped and got help practicing for an interview which I truly appreciated. I interviewed with an German exports company and got the job. Everything went downhill from there. The job was the worst I have ever worked at in my life, gossiping, favoritism, bullying and racist. When I reached out to Robert Half saying I wanted to quit, they did nothing to actually help me. There was no weekly check-ins with me either like they said they would do.

    When I contacted them to see if I could change my schedule to have a doctor appointment once a week they never replied to my 2 emails. I was wrongfully terminated from that contract assignment because of how toxic that job was, and I wouldn't kiss their butts. I still have things there and my recruiter was clearly pissed that he has to go get it, because they wouldn't let me in the building anymore, like I'm some kinds of criminal. They have no regard for you at all once you receive an assignment. And I honestly no longer trust them to find me a safe work place. Once they give me my stuff back, I'm using a different agency. Good luck everyone.
