Dysfunctional workers
Other workers made mistakes.
I was used to remedy problems and then not paid.

I had declared income and they refused to admit I hadnt been paid.

Irresponsible management.

Basic Casual pay rate, no overtime.

Worst of the worst!!
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.
Pros
None
Cons
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

Maybe you can find the solution in other domain

Good work

Pros

great place to work
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.
Pros
meeting new people
Cons
not enough work

Terrible hourly rate, no job security and dishonest recruitment staff
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.
Pros
Minimum wage
Cons
Minimum hour rate, charge you out at $60 per hour + and pocket over half for themsevels

Pros
Getting human resources roles.
