Accountant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 1, 2018
I had a temp position that disappeared one day with no advance warning. All I was told was that "I was not a good fit" by someone at Robert Half. The lack of communcation was appalling and unprofessional.
I'm not sure
Indifference towards people who work as temps or contractors
Not great pay, not great management, not interested in placement

i have worked with them and received excellent reviews but, they never called me to work again despite qualifications & experience. Always stated I wasn't good fit when ALL requirements are met. Some management do not care about workers or contracts. Not a very stable or nice environment for a worker. Too many people to place and ONLY the "click" are used.
Pay could be great but, they still low-ball you.
Don't care about you, your experience or you working at all.
Payroll Technician/Consultant (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – June 26, 2018
Very flexible with my work schedule. I can leave for a few months and then get right back into working. The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. The staff listens and finds the right job for me. They do not make me feel "guilty" for turning down an assignment. Love the employees at Robert Half.
Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 24, 2018
I had been placed fulltime perm, 5 mnths later I was let go & RH would not help me find another Perm or Temp job. This was awful for me because I had NO FAMILY to help support me for the time I got my next job. Then I went to RH for the SPP. that lasted 3 mths. Then I didn't want to travel 3 hrs away for an assigmt., made me understand if I didn't take the job of committing back and forth and weekends come home, they would let me go (which they Sold me on the fact that I would likely stay in the Bama area for work). Now I feel they have black balled me and WILL NOT HELP OR DID NOT HELP ME FIND A NEW JOB...THEY ARE AWFUL!
Not much to mention
Awful Mgmt., Pay not great for a MBA, SPP is a JOKE!
Various Temporary Assignments (Current Employee) – Columbus, Ohio – June 18, 2018
The company is great, but temporary; looking for a permanent job. As with a temporary agency, there are no benefits and mostly temporary positions. I am requiring both a permanent position, and benefits.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 5, 2018
They will place you anywhere there is a need whether you like it or not, and if you ever refuse an assignment, they will black ball you and never call you again for jobs. The last job I went on was for Admin Assistant, and that job had me cleaning the whole week. At one time they had me in the kitchen opening up expired beer and poring it out. That was an all time low for me, but I needed work. Robert Half asked me if I wanted to stay another week on that assignment. When I said "No", they stopped taking my calls.
The reception here is a bit stand-offish, but the account managers are very friendly and helpful. There is space for work and training at the facility, but is discouraged and only used for testing in favor of "at home" training and testing, which doesn't work for everyone. I'm a bit spoiled by my experience at Professional Staffing Group of Boston, which had professional advancement work stations at the office and really helped me land them two full-hire commissions. Low paying "starter" positions here, such as Data Entry, seemed to be lacking in favor of meatier 14-18$ hour temp jobfinds. The skillsport tutorials are outstanding, and they do a great job of interviewing and trying to match what employees and employers are looking for.
Great salary job finds
No on-site training, limited testing, icy reception.
Sr. Accountant/Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI; Houston, TX & San Diego,CA – April 22, 2018
I've given Robert Half several opportunities and each city and every office I've had the same results. Overall lack of enthusiasm, poor management, not working on your behalf, will allow you to be released from an assignment, then black list you from getting other jobs. If you do get a job they will put you places where you will fail or give you lower pay as punishment.
Hate this company to the utmost. Would never refer them to anyone and I've been in Accounting and finance over 30 years.
