Anyone have experience using a temp agency like Robert Half? We have some assignments that need attention so I reached out to RH. They charge $125/hour and want a commitment of 40 hours a week. Is this standard? That is a solid $240,000 per year!

Don’t use Robert half. I have and like 3 friends. We don’t make the 125$. They rip us off. Hire directly or ask your friends someone needs a job.

We are using them for specific projects. They told us the same thing you listed. They want us to be able to keep them busy at 40 hours a week and the temp can’t have their name on things we file in court, so their projects are limited to doc review and research. They can draft things, but since they can’t do anything that constitutes an appearance, it’s kind of limiting.

I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.

Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.

I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?
