Fun culture, fast paced, low salary

I worked at Hays for almost a year, this was one of my first jobs in an office setting and the culture and environment was an excellent place to start off my career. I was lucky as I was within a good team, and that made my experience great. In terms of progression, unless you fit the stereotype personality they have in mind it’s hard to progress up, but definitely can be done just have to try to mould to that. Regarding salary, it was extremely low, almost minimum wage, and in the role I was in, there was no extra benefits or commissions, even though you contributed to the consultants reaching their commission. I believe they purposely hire candidates who don’t have much experience within an office setting as those people don’t realise how low the salary actually is. However, in saying that the experience and knowledge I gained from Hays helped set me up really well for future positions. I loved my time here, and I would recommend it as a starting point for anyone looking to work in an office setting.

Most enjoyable part of the job

Due to being offered shifts in different locations you meet a lot to people on the job and have the opportunity to create as many friendships as you please.

Would not recommend

The same old big corporation that pretends it is different and treats its employees well but it does not. It does not value its team or their work - only numbers on a sheet. The team environment is that of face value and if you look deeper you see that no one actually cares about each other. And all this for an extremely low joke of a wage!

Best Company I Have Worked For

Since joining this company in 2021 I have found it challenging yet super rewarding! The team and support I have around me each day it top notch. There is endless career growth and opportunity if you are willing to put in the effort. Working is a recruitment agency is always going to have its ups and downs but if you stick it out for the ups, none of the downs will matter.

One of the best Labour Hire Companies I've worked with

Internally they have had quite a few changes of staff due to Maternity and Personal Leave so sometimes you get lost in the transition, you just need to keep in touch yourself and make yourself known..... Over all, the past 4yrs have been pretty consistent. If I leave because of another Labour hire the can't wait to get me back.
