“Dreadful job agency”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by AshleeWarren143 (1 review written)

Every job that I applied for turned out to be, quote - on hold - oddly none of these jobs ever came off hold. I registered with Randstad for one year and I got no work from them at all, they rejected every one of my applications without providing me with a reason why. I would phone them up about the jobs I applied for only to be rudely brushed off, they would try to end the conversation as quickly as they could. A really horrible agency, wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy… Read Full Review

“No respect”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by Leonard5 (1 review written)

Today I went to Randstad , the interviewer didn't know what she was looking for. She didn't know what the company needed and said me that I hadn't the right profile. I ask her to bring the job offer so I could explain her because I am the specialist of that. I felt that I was doing her job. Afterwords, she agreed but even if they call me I have no intention to keep the process. Sorry Randstad. I am disappointed. She was in a really bad humor, I don't know why she called me… Read Full Review

“Sorry excuse for agency”

Written on: 24/10/2014

I worked for randstad a couple of times now, the first time I was a gateman and did my work, I was then removed without warning and was told that the agency told them to not tell me work was ending so that I couldn't look for anything else. I gave them another chance and did painting work for them, I haven't been paid correctly once. And when I rang up to sort it out I was offered no help, payroll actually messed up and refused to take blame until I went to an onboardsman and all of a sudden I… Read Full Review

I found Randstad through a job posting on Workopolis and sent in my resume in. Got a call back so they rushed me in and got all my paperwork done and passed my online test.

“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.
