Founded in 1948, Robert Half has a long company history of innovation, always guided by high ethical standards and the belief that finding the right fit for a client and candidate creates an engaged and energized workforce.
I have been registered with this agency for over 20 years. They have shown me to a client twice. I am very qualified for many positions they have posted and that are sent to me in an email. When I ask to be presented to a client, I am told "I will try to get some traction for you, or the client will say you are overqualified". In addition, twice in my career I have replaced one of their hired candidates (both younger) who were fired or quit within their first 2 months on the job. I even had to collect the recruiting fee back from them in one case. I am currently interviewing for a position through another recruiting agency. The position is also posted by this agency I am registered with, but they did not contact me to interview for it.
Based on all of the reviews here, I don't see why they are even listed on this website!
I have been registered with this organization for over 10 years and have yet to receive a phone call asking me to fill in as a temp or interview for a position in or around the Pittsburgh, PA/North Hills area. I have made numerous phone calls and have yet to have one returned to me. They are definitely not an age friendly organization nor are they interested in helping people find work. I was employed by the same organization for nearly 22 years and only left there due to a corporate downsizing that took out over 100 employees. I am qualified for many positions and reported this office to Robert Half International Office for lack of action and job seeker cooperation. At the time I was only 58 and not of retirement age.
I too have been discriminated by Robert Half located in Perrysburg, Ohio. As someone else stated after the interview, suddenly they have NO openings. Or later you call about a position and they say well you have not worked recently. Well, I wonder why, because you did not call me for any positions due to age discrimination.
They are not age friendly. I applied several times for the last two years. I only got a temporary position (one month).
I have reached out to several Robert Half offices in San Francisco, Sacramento, Fairfield, and east bay counties in Northern California. They are extremely interested in my resume but once I have that in person interview, it all changes. I have to constantly reach out never hearing from them, never receiving any assignments. They just never contact me once they see that I’m an “older” person seeking employment.
I have applied for several positions through Robert Half and Accounting Temps in the Sacramento, Solano County and SF/East Bay. The minute I have a face to face either in person or video, everything changes. So no this company is not age friendly.
They only call you in to meet quotas. For 20 years, they continually had me come in based on my resume, but never provided me with an interview with any of their clients. They say they have the perfect job for me, but it is no longer available when I get there. It is a bait and switch operation. I have a very impressive resume, good references, and always got the job when I interviewed with a company.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
