(as contractor) Makes me feel in-demand, a good thing
IT Support Technician (Former Employee), Denver, COOctober 18, 2014
Pros: dynamic experience, call your own terms, negotiate opportunities before day 1
Cons: inconsistent work environments, ever-changing circumstances, possible periods of no work available
Speaking as a 'temp', or the staff that is sent to client locations to fulfill short-term contracts, they really treat me right. The only real awkwardness is being handed around the various divisions (admin roles to technology roles to accounting roles) which can be cumbersome when I'm being called with multiple offers at the same time.

Even so, it – more... feels like my skills are in demand, like I'm wanted. That's a good feeling, even if it can get a bit hectic. The recruitment teams are always willing to have a conversation about where I feel I'm going and whether any given assignment feels like a good fit or not. Some assignments will have an unexpected twist, but that comes with the territory. The thing to remember foremost is that RH is my actual employer, and they deserve my feedback more than the client does.

For years, I've been working short-term assignments through them and it's always been a satisfactory experience with timekeeping, payroll and benefits. All other aspects are really chalked-up to the individual clients, but that's what keeps life interesting, now doesn't it?

I have yet to 'convert' through RH, that is, to start as a temp and have the client take me on permanently. While this seems to be the main charter of staffing agencies overall, only about one third of the staff assignments at RH ever become permanent employees at any given client firm. This is just the norm, as RH would rather retain punctual, polite and productive employees for the short-term assignments than give us up to a client, even if they do get a hefty "finders fee" in the process.

In summary, it's really luck-of-the-draw for the work environment. If stability is what you're looking for, then sign up for strictly temp-to-hire opportunities. At least you'll have a mutual "tryout" period before either you or the potential employer are committed to the respective choices. – less

Good at finding jobs but...
Temporary Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Saint Rose, LAOctober 17, 2014
Pros: finds work quickly in most cases
Cons: little to no benefits and low pay
The compensation is low for the skill set most of the time, the recruiters are very helpful and find something for you fairly quickly but it is not always something that may be permanent. I am looking for job security and benefits because I have a young family and we are trying to make it work. My husband is on worker's compensation and waiting on back – more... surgery approval and the surgery itself. He has been this way for over 2 years now. I am the bread winner and I haven't been able to really bring home the bacon with this company. It is a little better than unemployment financially but it does help you get your foot in the door if the employer wants to hire permanently. – less

Sale for Cox Communications
Third party Sales Representative (Current Employee), Omaha, NEOctober 15, 2014
Pros: meeting a lot of new people
Cons: long days on my feet
Talk with customers shopping at Wal Mart. Introduce them Cox Products, recommend products to meet specific needs of customer and close the sale. I've learned to be an active listener. Observe management and utitlize their techniques to improve sales. The hardest part of the job is remaining energetic for nine hours a day while being on my feet throughout – more... the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to people and meeting their needs. I find that very satisfying. – less

Working with Robert Half for placement with a company for full time work was great. They were able to place me in a position that lasted over a year.
Transaction Specialist (Former Employee), Perrysburg, OHOctober 14, 2014
I would receive paperwork from various scrap yards and enter both purchase and sale of material. This information would create invoicing that would need to be processed. Inventory records were also created with this entry.

What I learned with this position was time management and organization was an important part of my daily activities to meet the – more... necessary payment deadlines and month end reports.

The most time consuming part of the job was creating the excel spreadsheet that was audited monthly to track all inventory moves and tie to monthly wire.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the various people that were in the office and at the yards to help with the gathering of the information necessary to complete the monthly reports. – less
