“Poor organisation”

Written on: 25/06/2021 by RobSwin (1 review written)

In voted to dexterity test for role with Ferrero. Left in reception for 45 mins before chasing with reception. When they finally turned up there was no apology and the person actually said he would try to get me in early as though he was doing me a favour when it was already 45 mins late. Hardly great preparation before doing a test but they didn't care as long as they get paid by Ferrero… Read Full Review

“No Paycheck On Payday and INCORRECT Payrate”

Written on: 28/01/2020 by GarrettGreenwood481 (1 review written)

Started a job at a local plant through Randstad in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Was hired as a Forklift Operator and was originally told that I would be paid a particular hourly rate. I was supposed to work partly on the line and partly as a Forklift Operator, but as I started and they got rid of one of the operators, I somehow slid into the role fully. I was cool with that. I agreed. I worked the 1st week and then the 2nd week and this was supposed to be my first paycheck. The first week, I… Read Full Review

“Recruitment poor service.”

Written on: 21/01/2018

This review is based on fact. Recruiter at Randstad got in contact regarding position of manufacturing engineer at Caterpillar Belfast. Advised that he would apply and send CV to client. No job description was sent. Have heard nothing from him no reply which is professional courteous as other recruitment companies will do advising if client interested and status of application. Contacted Randstad after one week and still waiting on job spec and information. Signed FR… Read Full Review

“Greed Personified ”

Written on: 25/06/2017 by 128Simmons (1 review written)

Sacked me even though I was performing because my mother had a stroke and they got concerned I might be off. Used the excuse I had a CV on CV Library so I couldn't be trusted. HR then wouldn't talk to me and a week and a half later I found out they charged me so much for working there I got paid £79. Should have been 2k. £500 alone for training. They don't tell you this or they ''retain" further money from you as "fuel withheld". I wasn't bitter about being let go really but I find the… Read Full Review

“Very very sneaky! ”

Written on: 05/05/2017 by BellaVance (1 review written)

They hardly gave me work once I had passed their requirements and then rang me after a year to ask me how much another agency is paying me! Heard that they go to schools and offer a cheaper rate so that supply teachers are paid even less than they are now! Don't ever use them, they do not provide their staff with proper pay and will use you to find out information about other agencies. Very sly!… Read Full Review

“Poor Head Hunter”

Written on: 08/02/2017 by Anonymous123abc (1 review written)

I applied for an Executive Assistant position that I was overqualified for. Tried to follow up with Erich, and it was clear that the follow up was not appreciated. Was looking for a head hunter that I could work with that would be active in helping me to find employment elsewhere as I was already currently employed. He seemed to not be interested, and in fact, encouraged me to continue looking elsewhere. Not proactive at all and will never use this agency again… Read Full Review

“Beware contractors”

Written on: 26/08/2016 by Rice420 (1 review written)

Beware contractors, if you take their insurance, they cut you off the moment your gig ends..Even though they don't tell you that, or even tell the insurance company until weeks later, even though they have paid the dentist, Randstad cuts you off retro actively weeks later, and the insurance company is asking the doctor for the money back! Beware putting your own money out for any pre-employment testing - they say they will pay you back but they never do.... If Randstad comes calling on you RUN… Read Full Review

“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
