RHI or RHT takes about a 34% commission from your pay. That means they seriously screw over your contratee and you. I may be entry level, but I was placed in a job that needed an experienced person. I barely made it through this job, but I had to rely on my "street smarts". Any company that hires through RHT has serious problems.

Once upon a time, a recruiter would take the entire first two weeks of your salary in payment for getting you the position - even if you lasted only three weeks there.

These days, what happens is that you are paid the normal rate and the company is wiling to pay that additional percentage for the agency having sent them someone they can observe before committing to a permanent hire.

Trust me, you are not going to get that additional money even if you go permanent in most cases.

30-35%. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
robert half fets 60-80% more than what they pay you. For instance, if they pay you 15.00 hr, the company is billed 27.50 hr at the least.

I was part owner of a small Tampa Bay staffing firm several years ago, so I know how this fits together.

Staffing/Employment firms mark up is usually around 60%, unless it's a higher end position or a time intensive project. If you were being paid $15, that means Robert Half would be billing the client the $15 for your salary plus 60% of that $15, which is $9 per hour. So, they'd be billing around $24 per hour, give or take a little.

Depending on the staffing firm's costs, normally, anywhere from 15-25% of that $9 will be to cover payroll tax costs, worker's comp, etc.

The Mafia pays you the full $27.50 per hour but you gotta pay for your own ammo so it comes out to about the same.

Oh now we are back to part owner? Make up your friggin minde Zeke. You can't guide if you are not consistent. People are going to discover that you are not the illustrious staffing professional you claim to be but just a wimp with only a few years experience in business.

You don't know jack about how business works, Zeke boy.
