Former Freelancer - Information Technology Specialist says

"They will set you up for an interview, you go spend over an hour of your time there, ace the interview, then finish with a firm hand shake. Then your "friendly" recruiter tells you they have feedback and claims that they said you were sitting there swearing like a sailor. Gee, would most people give someone like that a plant tour and have an interview with them for over an hour if they were a piece of human garbage? Then if you dare speak in your defense, you will be attacked and yelled at. Oh, but remember you are the unprofessional one right? It is one thing to pass up a candidate for someone else with better credentials, but another thing to smear someone's character. So if you like a nice dose of libel topped with slander, by all means apply with this place."

Former Employee - IT Contractor says

"They lie to their clients. They lie to their staff. They lie to their contractors. I was told the assignment would be for at least a year. The client told me day one they'd only signed a contract for 6 weeks! I was given a specific description of my duties, none of which were accurate. My time-card was changed without my approval. They kept underpaying me. They continually made excuses, none of which were valid. There were four sales people working on this account and they should all be in jail."

Former Contractor - IT Help Desk says

"I reported sexual harassment and no action was taken. I was just expected to go back to work and continue dealing with it."

Former Employee - IT Technical Recruiter says

"The biggest that I had with this company was the lack of professional management, and who they hired as recruiters and sales people. The office is one big giant open room, with the type of cubicles where you are directly next to and also in front of another person. The level of immaturity at this company was literally unbelievable. Grown adults would fight and argue, and talk/make fun of each other behind each other's back, but when in front of that person they act as if they are friends. It was the most disgusting place I've ever been in, both inside or outside the workplace. Elementary students or a welfare office had a higher level of maturity than all of the employees here. Also you are expected to work hard. Ridiculously hard, I'm talking 7:30am to 6pm. I am so happy that I left. I now make more money, work half the hours, from home. Ahhhhh."

Former Employee - IT Technical Recruiter says

"Really negative environment. Grind house, open floor - over packed office. 100-200 calls a day or you will get chewed our in front of your team. Low base salary and insane quota goals to meet "draw"."

Former Contractor - IT Consultant says

"Arrogant recruiters, spotty assignments that had little to do with my skillset, could no longer work with this company"

Former Contractor - IT/IS says

"They do not care about their employees at all even though you are paying their salaries! You have to work at the min. 1500 hours (37.5 weeks) to earn any paid time off. Your direct pay shows up inconsistently. The recruiters are invisible once you get the job and if you do connect with them they treat you like you have a disease."

Former Contractor - IT says

"- High turnover. If you liked a rep odds are they won't be there when your contract ends. - I have been lied to multiple times by one of their representatives who told me I was still in the running for jobs that had been filled (I called the employer myself to confirm). - They don't take complaints seriously, and they have no regard for your privacy when lodging a complaint. - Most of their representatives have never had a job besides their current job, but they will insist you follow their interviewing "tips". - It seemed like all they did was search the internet for jobs, and then submit their candidates resumes. I can do that myself; where are all of they're supposed strong partnerships with large entities?"

Former Freelancer - IT Technician says

"I had an interview setup for 3PM EST and never heard from the recruiter who setup the interview. We spoke multiple times throughout the week and he sent me all the necessary requirements for the Skype interview, which I met. I may be entry-level and fresh out of school, but this comes off as very unprofessional. I took off work to go home and get in front of my computer only to stare at blank screen. Thanks."

Current Employee - IT Professional says

"2100 hours required to get holiday or the yearly bonus pay.... 52x40 = 2080.... meaning you get ZERO days off, ZERO sick days, ZERO vacation AND you have to work 20+ hours of over time. A junk manipulative company. As bad as walmart in my book. they provide medical insurance that's 800$ a month and then have the nerve to tell me "We had to cut the holiday pay and bonus pay benefits so we can afford the medical and other benefits. REALLY?!??!?!?! complete junk of a company!"

Medical Biller/AR Follow-up (Former Employee) says

"I have never worked for Robert Half despite receiving phone calls and emails from them about potential jobs for my skill set. They have not yet placed me on an assignment. I have never worked for themThey do not return phone calls even if you are returning their call"

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says

"Worked here for 3yrs. They care more about getting their cut then placing you that’s a good fit. Terrible follow through skills, lazy, unprofessional. Even if you have a stellar resume they play games. Job ExperienceBeware very unprofessional"

Division Director (Current Employee) says

"Bad leadership, really bad. Without even mentioning the internal lack of values, Houston hired a murdered and the client had to be the one to alert them (caught on video, all over the news). They also hired someone that stole an identity TWICE. LITERALLY TWICE the same office hired someone wanted by the police. How do you fire someone who stole an identity and then hire them again? Just two examples over a very small time frame. How do you as a company trust someone like this to work in your company, accounting departments, or IT? Baffling! They make you realize what you do not wantBelittling, lack of ethics, lack of leadership, lack of...fill in the blanks"

Level II Desktop Support Technician / PC Technician (Current Employee) says

"They never call you back on important issues like pay and mileage or getting back to you regarding job prospects. It's a pain to write emails and make phone calls without getting called back or receiving an email. Very poor communication. It goes to the highest level, even the Vice Presidents of the company. NoneLong waits, bad communication, untimely pay dates, never get a call back or email from their staff."

Administrative Clerical (Former Employee) says

"A typical day does not exist, because they are not professional enough to take a good person and train them properly. MANAGEMENT think they are better than you and they lack experience and professionalism, they all need work just like I WorkPLace Culture is a JOKE The EMPLOYEES AND STAFF ARE JUST AS CROOKED AS ANYONE ELSEThey will interview and you will get offered a job and then never given a start dateYOU will not get HIRED PERMANENTLY DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME"

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) says

"Not interested in you or what you did. Poor leadership. Unable to match skills and experience with interests and convenient location. Meet and greet factory.NoneLots of order takers."

Field Service Technician (Former Employee) says

"They messed up a direct hire job because they would make money on me when placing me at another temporary job. This is a problem with this recruiting company. This company was always looking for jobs that was not in my professional career. At times they would offer me jobs that the hourly rate was so off it was absolutely hysterical. NoneJob opportunities"

Key Holder (Former Employee) says

"I had almost given up getting work through Accountemps but then an agent called me and I worked for several years for them. There were a few personnel changes in the time I worked for them but the effects were that the jobs paid a lot less. In 2015 they underwent more staff changes and I then had a new agent to deal with. Unless I wanted to take yet another cut in pay, they had no work for me.nooooo oo j jjj k k k l kk k kk k kih hg jkfg fgy g gh h huji"

Legal Analyst (Former Employee) says

"AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS. I know there can be many disgruntled employee’s for a variety of reasons but believe me when I say you can use your expertise elsewhere. This company does not care about their employees and will leave you feeling worthless. There are plenty of other opportunities out there that does not involve working with low class people with no sense of professionalism whatsoever. Don’t waste your time here."

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) says

"After being placed at a job that was supposed to be temp to hire, I had a few issues with the working environment. I was contacted by my contacts that placed me at the job asking how everything was going. I was honest and their best response was to tell me to submit a two week notice. They would not allow me to interview at other “opportunities” until after the two week notice was submitted and done. They expected me to forgo a paycheck and did not offer any other solutions to the issues I brought to their attention. I do not recommend them for anything seeing as it took them two business days to contact me after the “assignment “ they placed me at let me go.NothingEverything"

Paralegal (Former Employee) says

"They work you like a sl...to their benefit. They offer you assignments if you have anything close to an opinion. They are the worst! Special Counsel is a much better agency to work for.There are none.Incompetent employees from the top to the bottom."

Master Data Specialist (Current Employee) says

"The agents at this company are rude, pushy, and do not listen to employees. They are untruthful to the companies they work with, giving them misleading information about the job positions they can fill, so they can overcharge the company and underpay the employee.NoneRecruiters paid on commission basis, so they only care about getting paid more."

Administrative Assignments (Former Employee) says

"They found me work somewhat quickly, but it was HORRIBLE work. I was EXTREMELY underpaid, and the work was awful. They never answer their phones and don't call back. I hate Robert Half.Got work somewhat quickly.Horrible work, never answer their phone, never call back, very unprofessional."

Escalated Complaints Specialist (Current Employee) says

"I will NEVER do work for them ever! They don't really care about the people they hire. First they hired all the these people then just started laying them off one one by one! They were no help during this troubling time of COVID-19! All of the building got to work from home as soon as the pandemic started, except the Robert Half people. There were 14 confirmed cases of COVID and they refused to send us home. When we started to voice our concerns they just brushed them. They staring laying people off instead of just letting us work from home. They are terrible people and evil. All of the Robert Half people are working from home but won't protect their employees, it's BS if you ask me. I really hope someone sues them because this is outrageous.Noneeverything"

Recruiter (Former Employee) says

"Terribly immature company with an awful culture. Metrics-driven environment without any corresponding rewards. No pay increases, no annual reviews, just keep making your metrics."

ACCOUNTING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) says

"U work hard and are not compensated well. I was there for duve years in temo positions. They kept moving me around and never gave me a permanent role."

Temporary Employee (Current Employee) says

"Been with them for now 7 months and not one job. This predates the virus so they have no excuses. They just put out job postings and real in New fish and it goes no where. I think they are just collecting personal information to re sale but thats my opinion. Big Boy waste of time, moving on."

Sales Director - Digital Practice (Former Employee) says

"I have never experienced for shiestiness in a work place that has no ethics and culture when it comes to business. People on other teams will steal from you then the bashing of others that goes on. Literally the worst place you could ever want a job. Just don't."

Salaried Professional (Former Employee) says

"Rober Half Salaried Professionals: Management uses manipulation and are dishonest in their supervisory tactics. They are resistant to providing you a performance review and subsequent pay increases. The supervisors need Workplace Harrassment Training and a separate HR division to work with employees. If needed, work a one time placement, but then get out!"

Accounting-Administrative-Customer Service (Former Employee) says

"No professional perception of inclusiveness or protection from robert half. Less than half of the salary paid compared to permanent employee. A joke, but I required some financial income."
