Absolutely do not recommend this company!
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Mawson Lakes SA16 May 2019
I recently applied for a production worker job with Extrastaff. I was called back promptly and interviewed for a position at San Remo. The job was described to me in a way that very much fit my skills and previous experience.

However when I went to the first shift of this job I was immediately made to feel extremely uncomfortable. I was not introduced to a single staff member, not even a team leader. There was no attempt made to familiarise me with the production area.

I was given the task of stacking, wrapping and moving pallets. Whilst this is not impossible for me to do it presented a fair strain as it was at an unmanageable speed and I am a small individual. This is also not at all the type of work described to me.

This was made even worse by the fact that my 'supervisor' provided minimal instructions and appeared visibly annoyed when I asked for help. I had never wrapped pallets before and was not asked what I did and didn't know how to do.

Had I been informed of the warehouse type work and conditions in the factory I would not have accepted the job as I do not feel comfortable performing tasks I am not experienced in/capable of without supervision and assistance.

It seems as though Extrastaff just wants to shove people into vacancies whether or not they fit!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Waste of time, misrepresentation of duties in the workplace and working conditions

Improper behaviour...
Catering Assistant (Former Employee) –  Adelaide SA20 February 2018
Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with this agency during my job application. After several calls and following my application, they just told me your application is successful and someone will be in touch with you soon. Nothing happened. Ultimately, after two weeks of waiting, I had been told that you don't have enough experience while they could told me at first not after a long time. Absolutely, wast of time as they do not know what they do really. Even if I could work with them, I would not tolerate their rude and improper behavior.

Lying company, no hours.
Food Process Worker (Former Employee) –  Windsor Gardens SA24 September 2017
Was told during initiation several times there would be 38 hours a week for the production job I was contracted to. Upon starting was told that wasn't the case and ending up only getting 8 hours a week for 4 weeks.

Since then I have not been called for any more shifts and the company has given no reason why and have not even bothered to call. They were also aware how far away I was from the job and would give me work on call and at unreasonably short notice. This would result in me getting to the job late and with less pay.

Don't rely on this company to get you secure work and don't waste your time, especially with production roles.
Pros
Somewhat flexible
Cons
Lack of contact, no hours, job security

Packer (Current Employee) –  Melbourne VIC5 February 2017
According to my experience with this agency i am not recommended to other.Because of lack of shift, you get job but you can't make pay.They can't provide enough shift to their employee.They hire on a casual base so there is no guarantee for shift.So there is no job security,you have a continues work or not.
Pros
Good pay/Staff
Cons
Can't give enough shift to their employee
