reliable work they source out the best jobs suited to you they pay great I learnd a lot about plumbing and final trimming everyone was great when work ran out they would do the absolute best to continue the work I would highly reguard anyone to work for hays
Avoid @ any cost!! WORST recruitment agency i've worked for. Just treat you as a number. Try to get every single cent from you possible while advertising as paying 'generous award rates'. I was paid bare minimum and when i asked about it, i was told they no longer will update my details on the system.
You're treated as a way of making money. Agents get paid a commission.
About the hays GROUP it's verry great to provide the employer for make-up the buissnes in all the domains starting from the materials finishing in the tanks And learning from all the experience around the world In defrent culture Is not necessarily to find a solution in the paints industry Maybe you can find the solution in other domain Good work BEST wishes for yours

Give the company a 10/10 as they always are there to help An guide you through the life you spend away working .The company is always emailing to see how you are as arriving on site and are you settled in.
Friendly and fun environment, whilst remaining professionaland motivating
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 2 January 2019
A very rewarding place to work, keeping staff members motivated and hard working. This made Hays very successful in what they do. I enjoyed my time here and would not have left if it wasn't for visa reasons.
I worked for Hays In the past and worked almost everyday through my consultant at the time. With a few years gap I worked for Hays again and was happy with their professionalism and the amount of work I received. More recently I asked to work with them again and was told I could. I was sick the one day they offered me work and the consultant made a disparaging remark about an interview I hadn’t been told that I was unsuccessful in. It was very rude and hinted at a form of toxic bullying. It made me realise not to continue working there. Very disappointing that no one properly spoke to me about the failed interview. I already realised it was not the right fit, but had expected the same professionalism I had experienced in the past. They also sent me to the wrong area for this interview and wasted my time hugely as I was planning on continuing working with them. I have always had excellent feedback as a casual through agencies while working in childcare and kindergarten. Very disappointing! Also the Pu rates have remained stable for many many years!
FIFO Chef (Current Employee) – weipa Sodexo – 26 November 2018
Sodexo in Weipa was a great place to work at. The weekly pay comes in handy when you are on a remote site as the cost for things are very expensive. The only downfall with Hays is the assignments are not consistent, e.g. I worked away for 3 weeks came home for my R&R and I am still at home that was 4 weeks ago. I'm getting bored need to get back into work. But other than the consistency Hays is a great company to work for.
Hays has been a great long term and secure position for me.
FIFO Temp,Head Chef/Chef Manager (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 8 September 2018
Great work-life balance. Great boss/agent/manager. Having worked for Hays for 8 years, I can say that they have been a secure source of work and income. As a contract temp chef for them, the more you put in, the more you get out.
Terrible hourly rate, no job security and dishonest recruitment staff
Electrician (Former Employee) – Geelong and melbourne – 25 August 2018
Avoid at all cost. Recruitment staff are dishonest and will say anything to get you to site. They work on commission.
They advertise above award wages when they don't and if lucky may pay 50 cents above award. The award is so low no electrican would work for it.
They have you travel long distances to sites even when other sites have work much closer. This is due to the commission they take from your hourly rate. They compete against other hays recruiting staff. They lie about hourly rate and site conditions. Which you don't find out about until your on site. They promise better pay on future sites which they don't and will never have work at.
For example was told of construction site where i would be paid eba union rate and conditions and that they will get me on site asap. I ended up on the site in question not only was it not a union site but hays had never been approached to recruit electricans for the site.
Labour hire are middle men that should not exist and profit off the worker to the tune of $30 per hour that you work. This money is the difference between you getting by and you struggling to pay bills and eat.
The Labour hire industry needs to regulated and licensed or outlawed to ensure people like hays don't erode workers pay and conditions any further.
Minimum hour rate, charge you out at $60 per hour + and pocket over half for themsevels
