Casual workload.. not enough hours

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Most places you’re sent to are nice and people are collaborative. However the hours are very less since the shifts are only 3 hours long. If you’re looking for something very lightweight, it’s a good job.

Excellent agency for when you are between roles

Great place to work as a casual ECT. Plenty of assignments available with a reasonable pay rate (for the industry). The consultants are very responsive and easy to get on the telephone if there are any issues.

Pros

Responsive temp consultants who are easy to get on the phone.

Cons

The best assignment go fast, need to be ready very early in the morning to get the best ones.

Just not to let it go off to a different start to the day.So, there's much assistance given by Randstad and greatly appreciate that.

A typical day at work it is; basically that YOU'RE on your own (and probably) now.As prior I worked in a team environment or in groups.It's just being taught of Randstad's client's needs was enough to GET STARTED.They always have a professional workplace culture that looked accustomary (I don't know who's there)

Pros

Being able to have the time to show my capabililties.

Cons

Making a lasting impression is what I would encourage, I think.I just think that to TRY IT.

Work ethic, culture

When trying to get a hold of someone from randstad it is impossible unprofessional. Also getting PPE is even more of a nightmare you could be waiting months for PPE. Not all staff are incompetent at Randstad some have moved on. I would never want to work with them ever again.

Share your experience to help others

Professional and supportive

You were assigned a mentor that helped you at every step of your induction. They would contact you or text job offers for agency workers that you could accept or decline. The temp employer could rate you but you could also rate them. I was sent to a variety of childcare centres and when a centre likes you Randstad would give them the first preference of hiring you, so you got to go back to a familiar setting on a regular basis. It's a great company to work at generally but especially flexible hours while studying.

Pros

You pick and choose where and when you are available to work.

Cons

Sometimes the travel can be taxing.

Good for on call and casual

Pay is ok but doesn't recognise your qualifications so only pays the base rate for your age. Lots of shifts available, but no opportunity for part time.

Casual work environment. Great staff.

As a casual it was enjoyable because you work when you want nominating your days. Randstad always issued shifts early in the day or evening so you can say yes or no.I learnt it is not an easy job to accommodate all workers into casual employment on large job sites due to changes in the work load within the company you are assigned to. Management were as open and honest as required under company structure of managing each assignment on the merits of the workers and the client involved.Work place culture was friendly towards casual staff.Staff working through all questions and supporting any issues such as hours wanted by casual workers and payment of wages to the best of their ability. Hardest part was using the nominated time keeping and working shifts allocation on Deputy app. Sometimes shifts were allocated and then disappeared and you were left not knowing if there was a shift to attend or just appear at work.

Pros

casual hours, good rates of pay and friendly staff

Cons

as casual short notice of shift changes.

Well organised temp assignment

While only a short temp assignment, it was well organised. On line training regarding safety and workplace bullying all standard. The on site client staff were helpful, informative and generally lovely people. The training conducted by the client was great. All the other temps were friendly and everyone worked well as a team to undertake the work,

Pros

great city location

Cons

none

would not recommend to anyone

if you enjoy a lack of communication or available contracts contact the elizabeth branch in s.a and their highly unprofessional staff, with no regard to their staff this is the perfect place to go if you enjoy being run around for weeks with promises that they have no intention of coming good one. total waste of time and effort. highly would not recommend

Pros

none

Cons

complete waste of time

worst place to work

This is the one of the worst company to work with. In Bunbury, they hire and fire many people. Every after 6 to 7 months they fire people by making stupid alibies. With they said you had makeup on your face and their own fiends does come with full of makeup. Its all friend and family system. I wasted my time and learned the lesson ,its horrible place peruse your career in any field. Full of Bully staff.

Pros

Pays on time

Disappointed - Jobs not as described

Took 2 jobs at Randstad, both were not as advertised/described. At first job everything Randstad told me about the job turned out to be not the case. At second job I was paid lower rate then told by Randstad before starting it, and shift hours turned out to be different too, and site was pretty dangerous place to work.Disappointed with Randstad and will not consider them anymore.

Cons

Jobs not as described, pay lower then advertised
