Don't even bother
Out of all the agencies I've dealt with, this one has to be the most unprofessional. I applied a week ago for employment with them, filled out all the required forms, then never heard from them. Tried to call the person who I originally spoke to and all she did was avoid me. Disgusting just doesn't describe them aptly enough.
I was referred to Rawan by a friend who claimed Rawan could assist in my goal of landing a NSW government position. After only 4 weeks I had two interviews and fast track almost a few months later I now have a permanent role working directly for NSW department of education. Once a candidate, now a client of Rawan's I know where I will be going to for temporary or permanent staff.
Extremely abusive and un-professional Randstad Melbourne CBD recruiter Valeria
A few months back, I met with a Randstad Melbourne CBD recruiter, Valeria, who I do not know the surname, but only know has a Russian background. I was verbally abused and laughed at by Valeria during the interview. I am a professional with 5 years of experience and when I was asked my expectation on salaries, I said to her a number that was the average of s salary range published by a well-known recruitment agency in 2019. Valeria said to me with a sarcastic smile that if I think that possible, and that I should tell me if some day I could fin...d such a job! I could not believe what I saw and heard from her, and for 1 second or 2, I was shocked and could not ever organise my words to respond to her! After that, she looked at my CV and questioned me if some of my experience was real. I was extremely humiliated by that!! Throughout my 5-year career, I have always tried my level best to improve and learn, I am very proud of my experience and the achievements I have made, I cannot believe anybody can ever question and make fun of them! It is ridiculous that Randstad do not train their employees how to treat candidates as a human! I will never ever come back and see a Randstad recruiter again, shame on you Randstad.
Approachable and Proactive
I cannot recommend Randstad Parramatta, and particularly Rawan Shakhtour enough.
I wish I had been in contact sooner, as after 2 months of job hunting within a day of uploading my CV to their website Rawan had proactively been in contact, got to know a bit about me and what roles would suit and put me forward to two roles - and within 4 working days I had been offered a job! Not only that she kept in contact to ensure a smooth start to the role. I without a doubt will be using Randstad and Rawan in the future for my job hunting!
Just ads No response from their side
I applied for jobs at randstad and was never ever recieved a positive response from them. Once i got a call from them and then they said they will call me and they never did. i followed up regarding call back then their response was the person who called me is not working any more
Randstad - Fantastic Agency in assisting finding people work.
I registered with Randstad to help me find a new job.
Rawan Shakhtour was simply outstanding with her commitment, professionalism and work ethic.
She represented Randstad with pride.
I have secured a role which will be commencing soon.
Rawan and her fellow colleagues at Randstad have made the process easy and transparent.
I have to give Rawan an extra shout out, as she worked above and beyond supporting me through the process.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND RANDSTAD if your currently looking for work. 5 Stars
After my last assignment was cut short because of the Covid 19 issues I didn't think I would be able to get another job with them until it was all over. Thanks to Candice Richardson I was able to score a new assignment on a 3 month contract. Candice's professional manner and follow up was outstanding and great to deal with. Would happily recommend Randstad.
Thieves stole from me
BEWARE DID NOY PAY ME. Sent my original forms to them for payment receipts etc for costs. Asked to return and he would not return. Only a manager in Sydney. He was prepared to not pay or steal from me. Obviously to deliberately to reduce costs. Numerous other employees had trouble with them.
Above and beyond service
I came to Randstad searching for a job after redundancy, from the moment I walked in I felt like I am amongst family , Rawan Shakhtour took my application ,reviewed my resume , all documents and then she saved no effort to match me with an excellent job , she prepared me for interviews , helped me to discover my strengths, boosted my confidence and made sure I go to the interview ready to show my qualities and why I was a strong candidate , after I got the job she got me ready to start and had regular follow ups with me , I can't thank Randstad...and Rawan in particular enough for everything she did for me and for the professional yet caring experience she provided. Rawan is a big asset in Randstad and she is focused on helping others and that will not go unnoticed. Thank you Rawan and thank Randstad.
I have 20 years experience in the industry with 7 years training at Melb Uni. I was not good enough to work for them but they were happy to get commission through passing me over to a permanent position. two hour induction felt like an interrogation with rude staff, treating ESL staff poorly. Other agencies treated their staff with integrity and respect
Returned a call from Randstad about a role and phone rang out on one number and the other was disconnected. Consultant called again on another number. I left a message and they didn't call back. After not being able to get hold of them, I got an email to say 'the role has been filled'. Totally unprofessional.
Have loved working for Randstad Canberra for 5yrs
I have had a great experience with Randstad Canberra for over 5 years. I am employed as a casual in early childhood and can put myself on-call on the days that suit my family commitments. My lovely supervisors, Maddy and Lisa allow me to work locally and I have about 5-10 early childhood centres that I go to regularly. I have got to know the staff and children at all the centres and I just love my job. The app or the website is easy to use. I would highly recommend Randstad if you need a casual position in early childhood. I intend to continue with them for a very long time.
They are just not better than a scammer
I was looking for job when I saw an ad from Randstad and I thought I applied for the job. And I did get interview and passed everything, they sent me all the forms, all the details to be returned ASAP. And I sent them all then interview the next day. In the group interview, they promised us that the roles are heaps even it was only for short term. I was so excited but a month later I never heard any from them whether there is any job which they told us there are heaps of position vacant. I thought they gave me job right away just like other recruitments I have worked with but this one is just to scam people. Luckily I didn't stop applying somewhere else, I ain't waiting for them anymore. I don't even bother.
