Started in 1960 by Frits Goldschmeding, Randstad has grown into a staffing powerhouse. They are the third largest staffing organization in the United States and are a $22.9 billion global provider of HR services. Randstad provides job seekers with temporary, temporary-to-hire, and even permanent job solutions.
Since they offer a variety of staffing solutions, Randstad has the ability to put 100,000 individuals through its network of more than 900 branches and client-dedicated locations. They currently employ 5,300+ recruiting specialists. Randstad can be found in 39 countries, representing more than 90% of the global HR services market.
Randstad is one of the top providers in the following staffing solutions:
Today, Linda Galipeau works as the CEO (in North America). The company diligently works to help find job seekers land a job that fits their skills and interests. They also focus on creating a diverse workplace and stress the importance of corporate social responsibility.
Randstad trains all of their recruiting experts to ensure that they understand how to properly place individuals in positions that will benefit on participating parties. Randstad has created a relatively easy process for job seekers to identify positions that are of interest. After uploading a resume, the staffing consultant responsible for filling that position will reach out and see if it is a right fit.
Staffing specialists want to make sure that those they hire have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. The company specializes in a wide-range of industries to help as many potential job seekers as possible. Randstad specializes in the following industries:
Communication between the job seeker, companies, and Randstad is also one of their greatest assets. Job seekers can set up "job alerts" which will provide notifications directly to your email inbox with job results matching your desired qualifications. Employment specialists are also very good at keeping job seekers and the hiring company in the know when it comes to scheduling and decision status.
In addition to providing staffing solutions, Randstad is also a leader in the HR services market. In July of 2008, Randstad acquired Vedior. This acquisition made Randstad the second largest HR services provider in the world.
Even with years of experience and a number of resources, there are still aspects of Randstad's business model that create a cause for concern. Since they are so large, job seekers have stated that they felt somewhat "lost in the shuffle" after expressing interest in a particular position. That being said, it could be that the individual was simply not qualified. Other common complaints from job seekers and current Randstad employees include:
While Randstad does place people in jobs in specialized industries, most job seekers were disappointed in the types of jobs they qualified for. For instance, there are several jobs within the call center ranks that seem to dominate the job boards. For those who are interested in finding a long-time career, Randstad can help, but should not be the only resource you depend on to get hired.

One star because I could not give zero. Stay away from them. They are scams. I am waiting for money to be paid, but they keep pushing me around. I am not the only one, loads of workers have been scammed by Randstad.
The worse company ever. They waste your time and they are very unprofessional . They juge you over a game test. They don't even bother to have a conversation with you over the phone. If you want to waste your time and effort, well Randstad is the company to go
The Tower at Morgan Hill had the pleasure to work with Alex N in their help in finding a property manager. Alex is a very warm, genuine, enthusiastic gentleman. He goes above and beyond in helping employers seek employees. My experience was great and will reach out to him again in the future! Sharon W.
Found a job on their site. Interviewed and accepted all within a couple of weeks. The pay isn't great but other than that I can't complain.
interview took forever and the benefits aren't that great. They keep a lot more than you realize.
The recruiter was really nice and helpful during the interview process. I have a job that I like thanks to her.
