    Pros

    Great training program. Great for true sales people as there is a lot of opportunity to make money. Good benefits. The job forces you to improve and polish your skills.

    Cons

    Not a job for shy people (lots of cold calling). Can be a catty environment at times. You need to continuously stay sharp.

    I have been working at Robert Half full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great training ground to enter the industry. Take these skills and move to another company, industry or start your own firm. No respect for tenure. always a grind for numbers not quality.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past. top down narcissistic management. Education and free thinking are not valued. Metrics based - just do the numbers. The whole company is led by a very small group of elderly white men. They make decisions at a micro level without input from local management. No incentive to move up in this organization unless you enjoy kissing butt for a title. The same old ideas get recirculated as the "new flavor of the month". Employees are disposable - just a cog in the wheel.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training Beautiful Office Location

    Cons

    Nobody cares about you. You are a username on a weekly scorecard. Less than average benefits. Expenses take over a month to pay back which means you are left to pay additional interest on bills and credit cards. Time off/Sick Days are great in theory but employees are threatened and made to feel very guilty for using time. Not a creative environment. Not a single splash of colour. This is a call centre. You are expected to be on the phone all day. Branch Manager is the only reason why staff does not stick around. EXTREMELY HIGH TURNOVER.
