Long hours, working in remote locations

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Hays was the contractor that sent us to different locations to work. when I worked for them we were only paid twenty five dollars per hour, I am lead to believe that that has now improved to over 30 dollars per hour. the hours were long and we were not paid any penalty rates or holiday pay.

Pros

Meals included, as well as accomodation

Cons

away from family

Worst place I have ever worked

I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. Extremely unprofessional and toxic workplace culture stemming from the directors down. I didn't even last 6 months at this company. This place took a mental toll on me and I didn't realise exactly how bad it was until I left. There is a culture of competitiveness, bullying, people having outside of work relationships (if you know what I mean... affairs the works) - mainly managers and directors from what I gathered whilst I was there. It is not a place for kind and good people. Its a breeding ground for bad people and a terrible environment to work in, being overworked, run down, bullied and judged. They make you work 8-5.30pm everyday and it is expected you do overtime and dont get paid for it. Im surprised fair work haven't been into this place. If you are a company looking to use hays dont do it and if you are looking to work there... well here is your warning.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, bullying, manipulation, toxic culture

Outstanding until......

I had the job already as I got a referral from a friend. But, there were others onsite on the construction job that I was working on and there were huge differences - I was paid more I had regular contact If I had issues they were resolved. The support was great while I was working on the construction site. However, as soon as I had finished the support dropped as my account manager went on maternity leave and i was forgotten. (btw this was prior to corona) I will still recommend highly above other companies

Bad company

They take advantage of key workers in a crisis by paying them half the hourly rate of pay, While the cost of living skyrockets. In hays ive seen Trade assistants with no qualifications make more than fully qualified electricians with all their tickets.

Pros

There are none

Cons

Rate of pay is the dumps

Great office team.

Great office team. Career progression regularly advertised, let go due to coronavirus. Some days extremely quiet, other days extremely busy, needing to think quick on feet, high pressure.

Had a good time working at hays. Would love to work again with them.

They are very supportive and take care of you while on work and always make sure that you do not face any problems. They ask you that whether you are satisfied with your job and you do not feel suppressed by your colleagues or seniors.

Positive experience

This was a temporary position and the recruitment consultant was very helpful and continued to contact me to ensure everything was going well. Due to being a good fit for the company, my contract was extended.

Unsupportive work environment

No support for long term casuals. Consultants dont care about the workers. You are a number and you can easily be replaced. No info given to casuals about their rights.

Great company from my experience

Hays ways a great company to work for and interact from my personal experience.. but they say people make a company so maybe I was very fortunate to deal with a few gems.
