I have had the misfortune of dealing with Ball & Hoolahan for the past five years, and in all that time I have never received any kind of support or follow-through for any application. And when you call their office for support, their arrogant contemptuous staff don’t know chicken poop from chicken salad. They post hundreds or roles most of which appear ill-conceived and written in a standard of English one would expect to see in a primary school news bulletin. On numerous occasions I... (read more)

I lasted for about 2 months as a recruitment consultant. I worked in the construction industry trying to get jobs for brickies, labourers and the like. It was a shocking job, I worked 10hrs a day constantly on the phone to people who didn't want to speak to me. It seems like when you look for graduate jobs recruitment is everywhere. Trust me people, there are better jobs out there, save yourself the time and don't even bother doing it in the first place. Everyone in my office was... (read more)
