Temp jobs including filling in for receptionist, filing projects, and data entry projects.
Clerk/Receptionist/Proofreader (Current Employee), Providence, RI – December 4, 2013
Cons: no benefits or security
A variety of administrative jobs ranging from one day - to 1 1/2 years.
The typical day depended on the assignment but they were all office-based even if I was working as a receptionist.
I learned that a lot of times managers just don't want to devote the time/resources needed to train temps how to perform a job. They would rather just end the assignment.
Co-workers – more... who are also temps seem to be in competition with each other for the jobs.Those that aren't temps, feel that they are superior to those who are temps even if both groups are doing the same task.
The hardest part of the job was when the assignment ended. Especially when it had been one of the longer assignments and I was made to feel like a regular employee, not just a "temp."
The most enjoyable part of the job was finding out the assignment was going to be extended three months. – less
Recruiter (Current Employee), Los Angeles – December 3, 2013
Pros: i am can manage my time as i see fit.
Cons: they have very poor follow up skills, no company is too large for return a call or inform you that you were not selected for the job.
It seems like regardless of the talent and job experience you bring to the table they low ball you as much as possible. They tell you what you want to hear vs telling you realistically your chances of being employed if any.
Recruiter (Former Employee), Minneapolis – December 2, 2013
RHI was a great place to develop my professional skills. I was surrounded by type A, success driven professionals in a metric run organization that expected a minimum of 45 hours per week, and year over year sales growth of 20%. I loved the fast pace, I loved the accountability and the potential for high reward commissions. I loved being exposed to – more... and learning about so many different organizations in the Twin Cities.
I did not love that they preached training, but provided very little. I did not love that there was a strong disconnect between the core values preached and front line execution pushed by middle management. I witnessed a lot of dedicated, bright, motivated people join teams and ultimately fail to succeed, they were then pushed out the door. It was like watching them get chewed up and spit out as if they had failed, when they were either misplaced to begin with, or pushed into unethical/impersonal/used car salesman type practices they struggled with and couldn't perform on. Each division was different, so, that is an observation that I saw in some areas and with some teams, not all.
Overall I enjoyed my time with RHI and found it a financially rewarding and personally stimulating, although, not family balanced career. – less
Full charge Bookkeeper (Former Employee), St. Lucie County, FL – November 30, 2013
Pros: haven't found any yet.
Cons: get impression recruiter couldn't care less about finding me a job.
In 5 months, I've had two interviews. I was well qualified for both positions. I know how lax recruiter is with me - does not communicate well and will call at last minute to say an interview has been set up. She will say that she will call me right back and never does. For some reason, I am working with a recruiter that I did not originally interview – more... with and she gives off a "I really don't care about you feeling". I get the impression that once the interview is over with, she does not communicate well with the prospective employer to try to reinforce my experience and qualifications or advising of my excellent employment references. – less
