“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 colleague who left me voice messages.
She didn't even mention that 2 people would be present.

I tried to think nothing of it, and gave them a chance.
After a positive meeting, they said they would email me with prospective roles.
They never did, and they did not reply to my follow up email.

I phoned up one of the prospective companies that they said had opportunities, as I was
keen to follow up. Surprise surpirse, they said they didn't have opportunities.

In conclusion, Randstad are unprofessional, unhelpful and rude.
They are dishonest and not transparent - all the things you'd expect from a recruitment agency.
They lie to their candidates and misrepresent the companies that they represent.

I would be very careful of dealing with them, and would not recommend them at all -
there are better recruiters out there who do not waste your time and get your hopes rasied.
