Incompetence overall
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Sydney Central Business District NSW2 September 2018
I have been a casual applicant for 5 years and the excuse of not paying on time is loosing citizenship or identification or system breakdown of payroll portal.
This occurs every once or twice every 3 months, simply handling of time sheets very slow.
The meaning of busy is not competent to eradicate priority.
I have been casual with several recruiting agencies in Sydney, this is the worst job handlers to be known. Also there are fake reviews and it is definitly on this forum.
Pros
Long lunch breaks
Cons
Not available

Interviewed with this company for a recruiter role with them and they were rude and unprofessional.
Associate (Former Employee) –  Sydney16 February 2018
Their new model seems to be to churn out as many applicants into jobs as possible and they seem to have lost touch with 'care' in who they are putting in different roles.
Pros
Central Office
Cons
Long work hours/ toxic environment 2 different staff advised

No progression, no pay increases, questionable middle management
Group Services (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW5 June 2017
I've worked here for more than 5 years in the support staff (not client-facing). Job progression is near non-existent and there is a huge rate of staff turnover. Pay increases are next to non-existent and some of the middle management have no idea what you are doing, they will think you're doing little even if you are busting your behind and working long hours. And vice-versa you can be doing not much, take long lunches, work 7 hour days (if that) and be considered just awesome!

When the superannuation increase happened a year or so ago, the increase came out of employee's base salary, it didn't come from the employer.

They are currently trying to outsource jobs and are adept at forcing people to leave so they don't have to retrench them.

Would NOT recommend.
Pros
9 to 5
Cons
No progression, some awful managers in middle management.

Just another bad recruiter
Designer (Current Employee) –  Melbourne City Centre VIC14 February 2017
Used this company several times and was always disappointed in the consultants knowledge (lack of ) when it came to digital design and creative type positions. I wouldn't recommend them for anything creative or anything in the digital space. They're expensive .
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Expensive and inexperienced in the creative sector

Heavy micromanagement

Very KPI driven and highly micro managed. Do not look to slowly build consultants up and help them develop and grow professionally. Good group that work in the office and the culture is good.
Pros
Good culture and team
Cons
Long hours and highly KPI driven. No flexibility.
