    Good exposure if you have flexibility

    Financial Analyst II (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsFor the purpose of working now and gaining exposure without the commitment.

    ConsRude, disorganized recruiters. I vowed I would never contact Accountemps or Robert Half but the company was a large oil and gas company here in Houston so I agreed to it. They also paid me 25/hr (though I know they are billing for double that amount). You know, I don't mind that Robert Half needs to make money too but really... over $50 an hour and I get less than half of that? There's something wrong there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSmaller recruiting firms (won't name them but we could say at least one is woman owned and offered me $30/hr) tend to treat candidates better. I understand you are working for your client company but your recruiters all need to be professional if they want to be taken seriously. If an RHI recruiter calls me and they are rude or disorganized, I politely decline working with them because they will most likely not understand enough about the position they are trying to fill, making your life harder.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
