“Going through the actions.”

Written on: 16/06/2016 by Max193 (1 review written)

Randstad St Petersburg. After going to what they call a job fair repeatedly nothing ever happens. It Is like they are going through the actions and not placing people. I just do not get It. They send out e-mail all the time with loads of jobs but nothing. I have no Idea how they keep the doors open or why. I would avoid this place like the plague. And the staff tends to treat the clients like something that they found stuck on the bottom of their shoe… Read Full Review

“Very unprofessional and rude - avoid”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by 164Upton (1 review written)

I first came into contact with Randstad a couple of years ago. The person who approached me constantly badgered me - leaving rushed voicemail messages, that were aggressive in tone. I was busy working in the day, so couldn't answer immediately! I was in touch with them again recently, with a different representative after seeing a job opportunity. They seemed friendly enough so we arranged to meet to talk through roles. On the day of the meeting, she had brought along the rude pushy… Read Full Review

“It hurts not to be trusted”

Written on: 12/11/2015 by prayingtogetovermygrudge (1 review written)

The process of becoming registered with this UK Manchester agency took about 4 months. They repeatedly kept asking for information for DBS form, referees and proof of employability details, often "as a matter of urgency" but then did not seem to act upon them. I was beginning to feel that I had been "stood up" and that they never really intended to employ me in the first place! It was only when I got a bit "shirty" with them by suggesting that I might take it through their complaint about how… Read Full Review

“RANDSTAD PARRAMATTA THE WORST!”

Written on: 06/11/2015 by RihannaWard1988 (1 review written)

I was interviewed for a fulltime role with Randstad, after the interview was offered 6 month contract with view to FT. What they didn't tell me was that the job they put me in was only a 12 month contract. Suzanne Abdallah at the Parramatta branch is the worst consultant I have ever had to deal with. She is never in the office and fobs you off every time you phone her. Haven't been paid twice even though lodged approved timesheets. DO NOT GET INVOLVED WITH THIS AGENCY OR THIS CONSULTANT!… Read Full Review

“Nothing to like!”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by bouncer45 (15 reviews written)

Quite literally cannot be trusted. Impossible to get off of their mailing list after registration. No job description, in fact there was next to no info whatsoever. Impossible to deal with! And that was the manager of it!… Read Full Review

“RANDSTAD: RUDE & INCOMPETENT & HR REFUSE TO USE THEM!”

Written on: 17/09/2015 by Dobson171 (1 review written)

Randstad had a contract to fulfill placement of contractors at our organisation (circa 500 contractors) and the feedback I got from every contractor using this agency was incredibly poor! Contractors were consistently paid incorrectly or payment was delayed for which Randstad took no responsibility for and blamed on its outsourced company IQN. Contractors persistently had issues with logging in to the IQN system to the point where contractors were refusing to work at request that Randstad no… Read Full Review

I used a local branch ,they were very up beat at first saying they had 2 jobs on offer for me, went to one interview,they said I had done really well and they would get a starting date for me, now 2 weeks later nothing, they cannot even be bothered to keep me updated, they tell you what you want to hear, but it all seems to be a pack of lies and they just keep you hanging on, which is very unfair, don't bother with this agency, you will only be very disappointed… Read Full Review

“Very Insensitive Company”

Written on: 13/09/2015 by Maritza36 (1 review written)

I would not recommend anyone work for this company. Their very insensitivity to you especially if you have a family. Very rude workers the tones, and how they speak with you is not that of a professional. I was once sitting in the office and a certain worker was on the phone and how he spoke with the gentleman was insensitivity. Don't get sick because they can careless no sick pay....They care only about the needs of their clients and dare not you go to the supervisor at the job you're… Read Full Review

“Worst Agency to deal with”

Written on: 24/08/2015 by goeswithoutsaying (1 review written)

Worst agency to ever call me, although they get you interviews, they usually send 3-4 other candidates who are more likely to get the position than yourself and can be very rude when seeking feedback. Highly unprofessional in their approach and most of their attitude is based on their sales and commission rather than caring for the candidates. what ever happened to agencies taking their time to understand what the candidates require rather than telling the candidate what is better for them… Read Full Review

“Simple and easy”

Written on: 13/07/2015 by Jaydem (1 review written)

I couldn't ask for anything more, I dealt with the Birmingham team, in particular the person I dealt with she was so helpful and kept me up to date with everything I only had to get involved once I had the interview and got the job, if I ever needed to look for a new job I will definitely be in contact with Ranstad again!!… Read Full Review

“Unreliable and ignore emails ”

Written on: 11/07/2015 by GavynSchneider (1 review written)

This is a review for the Birmingham office. I felt completely let down by the consultant and this agency they sent me for an interview which I was really positive about and then despite my efforts to contact them for feedback whilst abroad they did not respond back to me. As far as I am concerned agencies should work for you as they earn there commission on placements and referrals , this agency i feel did not work for me and I certainly do not have a good word or recommendation to leave them… Read Full Review

“This place is HORRIBLE”

Written on: 20/05/2015 by thisplacesucksass (1 review written)

I've been to the Dalton Georgia office well over ten times and I'm always told "we will call you back" or "we don't have a job". However, every white guy, or Hispanic I see go in there they somehow find a job for them...Not playing the race card at all, but...Is it because I'm black? I'm a veteran and I'm more than qualified to fill some of the unskilled positions that they have posted. This is the worst place ever to go...if you're a black man! If I could give a half star rating or less I… Read Full Review

“not very professional”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by KatelynnGardner (1 review written)

I have left voice mail, email and tried calling again all day today but there is no answer...just a message saying that nobody can come to phone. The initial interview was lengthy (4 hours) with forms, tests and a final interview however when I responded to a job offer, no one replied. I have a feeling that the jobs are fictitious and that they are just trying to lure people in but my overall experience so far is poor and I feel that it was a waste of time (and money) to even bother going… Read Full Review

Sridharv00777's Comment

Written on: 31/03/2015

True, its really frustrating every time they send mails of vacancy which will be very much matching our requirement but when we try to reply, apply and even visit the Randstad Center for the vacancy , they dont respond, its really making fun of our situation of necessity of job. I have no hopes that either i will get any chance of job or even get to speak to any of the HR Recruiter.

I received mail from Bangalore :

For Sr.Order Management with our client Cisco, and from 2 weeks no response found from Either her for mails or fore given Phone numbers.

Its totally Mokery on us who are in need of job without job. Its totally not ethical or Professional behavior.

“Terrible just doesn't cut it”

Written on: 08/01/2015 by Lenad1952 (1 review written)

I used Randstad to gain access to one of the exclusive blue chip clients that they work with. The communication was pretty awful and listening skills abysmal. I would personally rank them as one of the worst I have come across out of the 50 agencies I have used over the years. The thing that has most upset me was the lack of response / feedback that I have been given post interview. In addition the inaccuracy of the information given during the interview process leads me to the conclusion that… Read Full Review
