“Very inconsiderate company and staff”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by Goodallb (1 review written)

The company I work for changed recruitment companies to Ranstad, I was forced into being employed by them and I wish I had left earlier. I had to submit my tax file number 3 times due to the incompetent staff there no filing it like they should, my email address has a .au at the end of it and it took 5 weeks to get them to put that on my file The latest incident is the worst by far. The company I work for has had some serious financial issues lately and haven't paid bills all across Perth… Read Full Review

“They don't follow up on candidates, very disorganized,”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by gkVogel386 (1 review written)

I have to deal with Randstad a few times on the last 15 years. My very first time it was a waste of time.. I remembered after all the paperwork and testing with a local office in a suburb near Tampa, FL, they never had anything for me whenever I called them, neither they called me back. I felt clearly they did not care for me as an associate. Later on, now during my most recent job search between 2013-2014 (still some effects of the economical crisis are felt on my local area- Tampa, FL) my… Read Full Review

“miscommunication or incompetence?”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by Preston235 (1 review written)

I guess that employment agency representatives come & go frequently @ every agency? Maybe they'll tell you staff people are gone? After I got a job, the agency didn't connect me w/its own on line timesheet/payment agency, dotStaff, for weeks. I am sure that I am still owed $ for a 4 month temp job. Randstad made problems between me & my remaining unemployment benefits of my previous claim. Agency stated that I hadn't told them that I was "available" when, after that assignment terminated, I… Read Full Review

“Lie to candidates have u waiting a month then cancel class”

Written on: 11/07/2014

Never trust randstad!! They are the worst EVER. I was offered an alternate position at Hewitt after being turned by terrible recruiters there already. Randstad offered me another position there through them. Had me come in for an interview fill out paperwork. Tells me I'm in a training class for over a month later. Ten days before the training class is to start they tell me it's cancelled. Are u kidding me??? I could've been looking for work all this time and even passed up ANOTHER job I had to… Read Full Review

“Abysmal, Rude, Unsympathetic.”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by FrenchcoreLady (1 review written)

Takes literally WEEKS to even get a call back, everyone from the recruiters to the manager is extremely rude. They have looked down on me, patronised me and spoken to me like dirt. Got "released" from a job last Friday (after the employer had told me to come back in and I'd bought a weekly train ticket) and was left with no explanation until 2.00 today (Monday). When I finally got the explanation (which according to one person at Randstad I was lucky to have) that I simply didn't have the… Read Full Review

Debraacook's Response to FrenchcoreLady's Review

Written on: 08/07/2014

I went to the San Ramon, CA office, spent 3 hours there testing, etc. Rude, unconcerned people. Recruiter told me not to interrupt while he asked me interview questions. I was attempting to provide additional information. I haven't heard a word from them in over two weeks. I left feeling I wasted my time. My recruiter left for a meeting before I was finished and the other associate said she was too busy to talk.

“Poor communication, poor support.”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by 312Carver (1 review written)

Was offered an "ongoing" position which only lasted three weeks. Was given very little information about how to prepare for the placement (was told to wear long pants, long sleeves). Turns out long sleeves were not required but roughly a dozen other details that we're not given to me by Randstad WERE required (no jewelry, nothing in pockets, no locker to put valuables, etc etc). Was shorted 12 hours on first pay cheque and after 3 weeks it is still not rectified. After trying for the 4th… Read Full Review

“Dishonest false advertisement”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by KennaMcManus (1 review written)

I was offered a part time position $15.50 hourly clearly stated in the Ad. Did a criminal check and a credit check to apply for the job. I passed both and got the job. I was later sent an email with the details of the job..the hourly rate changed to $13/hour??? I sent the original ad to the recruiter and he could not explain why the rate was offered at $15.50. I said thanks but no thanks. DO NOT EVEN BOTHER!!!… Read Full Review

“Lazy/incompetent staff at Springfield, TN location”

Written on: 29/05/2014

While MOST online job applications these days parse your work/ education exp. from your uploaded resume, apparently Randstaf does not. I was turned down for an interview at a position I know I am qualified for. When I called to ask why I was turned down- so I could try to improve my chances for work and learn from the experience, the person in question got snippy and told me I only had job experience up to a certain year. On the resume, which is ATTACHED to the online application, ALL… Read Full Review

I just received an e-mail back from recruiter asking me in what area did I want to work? HELLO!!! How about the area I drove 50 miles out of my way to apply for job in said area?... It makes me wonder why I am unemployed, yet idiots like Ranstad recruiters get paychecks. Jesus wept!!!

“False advertisement and misrepresentation is all you get”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Reyk247 (1 review written)

Recruiter in London, UK contacted me about a job in the UAE. Even though I said I wasn't interested he kept chasing me, eventually giving me a tripled salary quote that he vaguely and misleadingly worded as a "compensation package", which includes a load of allowances. Not very honest to say the least… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 09/05/2014 by KaliyahKilgore426 (1 review written)

I found a job listing on a website I thought was good, so I applied for it. The job was through Randstad and after I filled out the first online application I was called by one the recruiters and a interview was scheduled for the following day, meanwhile I was emailed some "onboarding" process that needed filling out and sent back. The interview went well and that's where it all stopped. I didn't hear anything more until I called their office 5 days later asking what was going on and I was… Read Full Review

AVOID AT ALL COSTS !! Ranstad/Caterpillar Ranstad In-house Recruitment Agency at Caterpillar, Desford should be avoided at all costs.

“The Staff Treat Job Seekers like 3rd Class Citizens”

Written on: 21/04/2014 by Bartlettdv402 (1 review written)

I have applied for 2 jobs - both thru Randstad. The staff is quite young and arrogant. They will barely even look at you and behave in a way that makes you regret that you even put the effort into sending them your application. I recommend that the ownwers of this company pretend to be regular applicants and see how they are treated. They will be shocked. In Montreal - they don't want to speak to you in english... very rude, awful experience. … Read Full Review

“Never Interview With Ranstad”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by Davidsonuz1977 (1 review written)

My husband was called on a Sat. morning about a interview on Monday. I had applied for the job for him on Friday afternoon. The recruiter sold my husband on the job. He told him that my husband was the best candidate they had seen and that he was everything that they wanted. The interview on Monday went well and the recruiter told my husband that he would have another interview on Wed. That interview never happened. A email was sent to the recruiter about this and a phone call was made… Read Full Review

“Tools who couldn't get jobs anywhere else work at Randstad”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by McKee88 (1 review written)

Avoid this company they consist of uneducated tools who couldn't find real jobs! They try to speak in an educated manner but all you have to do is push them a little to peel away the facade, If you really want a job go and apply direct or find companies that advertise direct, Randstad is akin to a global slave master don't believe their hype. All recruiters are generally the same, they are bad people, liars, and often morally lacking in many departments. If you have had a good experience with… Read Full Review

“Beware!!!”

Written on: 16/03/2014 by Brady226 (1 review written)

I am a former staffing consultant of Randstad. NEVER, in my professional life have I ever worked for such an unprofessional, disorganized, micromanaged company in my life. I was recuited from an old friend. I was very un-happy at my old job so I passed an interview. The whole interview process took forever. I should have listened to my instinct and not taken the job, but I did. It was one of the biggest mistakes I ever made. I was totally not well explained what exactly the job was. I was lied… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional, Unprofessional, Unpressional.”

Written on: 17/02/2014

Had an interview and got told I was successful over two months ago. Been told they are still waiting for references, after talking to people its obvious these reference requests were never sent out. Still waiting for this to be sorted out but giving up and wont accept a position even if I'm offered now. As a potential employee I feel the way I have been treated is disgraceful. As a member of the public it has not done much for their so called professional image.I have not been asked once to… Read Full Review
