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.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
They are just awful in every single way and I could not agree more with every one star review I have read so far. I hope they go broke because their business practices are beyond a joke terrible and they treat people like garbage. Can't believe they're still able to run their business because they seem barely capable of anything else.
The absolute worst
Is Randstad some kind of experimental lab where they are testing to see if brain dead monkeys can run a recruitment agency? Because I’d believe that 100%. The most incompetent, unreliable and rude staff. Have such a poor attitude towards candidate experience. Would highly recommend you do NOT use this agency.
Unprofessional and rude
I had to make 10 phone calls and send many e mail before the consultant got back to me . The interview was interrupted by the comment of the consultant. Interview related not to the job and very inexperienced people from Randstad. They asked my bank details by e mail I said not the consultant looked at me in an unfriendly way all the time of the group interview. Presentation about the company at interview not necessary 9 30 to 12 30 not even biscuits or coffee had to ask for a coffee. Zero customer service just to fill in the data base .I asked to be removed from data base.felt I could Not trust the company .

As a job seeker I was approached by a consultant in Perth, WA. All seemed fine and the consultants intentions seemed genuine until he abused his position and sent explicit and revolting messages.
Unfortunately this consultant is still working in the Perth based office as HR only care for money and not clients of their business. Purely disgusting to harass vulnerable women.
Randstad - Poor communication
Registered with Randstad approximately 1 month ago who were very enthusiastic and so excited to have someone with my experience on their books. The don't respond to emails in a timely manner. I sent an email 10 days ago and the email was only read when I rang and asked the consultant if they had an opportunity to read my email. Randstad will not provide feedback and tell me when I have left or decided if I want to leave my current position, I should let them know. Too bad if you want to have a new position lined up before you leave your current one.
Disorganised and highly unprofessional
Was promised to be considered for a job and rushed to collect tons of little forms plus video with 2 min per question! It was not 2 min in total as was told at the start. In the end no call back, no interview! More than 20 plus emails from the agency to say they didn’t get my email! Very disappointed.
Worse experience ever
Was told temp job was garuanteed with electrol Commission, was told to be available for weeks, I rejected other offer bc of this only to be told that I was NOT successful. It would be fine if they didn't asked specifically if I was available for shifts and I said yes to all... still didn't get it. Was specifically told not to call, I only should sit and wait for text. Can't even list all the things that are bad with Randstad, would not recommend to anyone, waist of time. They are beyond rude and unprofessional.
Never returned calls
I was contacted by an agent via sms regarding upcoming opportunities. I followed up via text, phonecall and email and never got a response. It seems they were just phishing to get names for their database. It is such bad practice to not return phonecalls. Job hunting is hard enough without this poor practice added to the mix.
Waste of time
Waste of time, they string you along for months just to tell you when you call them, since no one calls you back or always in a "meeting" that your NOT even applied to Ranstad! Even though you have fill in all the paperwork, pass their fitness test and get sent to interviews in the past 3 months while waiting for a position that they clearly stated that you have got a spot, just waiting for the start date of the job. If your not taking people in Randstad, tell them upfront so they are not wasting thier time with your agency!!!! Pfft, that you d...on't meet up to "Ranstad standards" and when you ask what their standards are they just tell you "there are no particular standards" like seriously??? If your going to give me a bad answer at least come up with a better answer, is it because I wasn't praising you guys up to the sun?! Overall WASTE.OF.TIME. go somewhere else!
rude unethical and incompetent
I rang up the relevant consultant about a job that was posted on seek and which i applied for. The consultant i spoke to had no idea that the job was even advertised let alone what it was about. She was rude and could not have cared less what i was talking about. I would not deal with these incompetent clowns again.

Appalling Standard of Practice
One worker demanded I provide them with intimate details regarding my banking and health prior to me even being offered an interview by the employing organisation. They went so far as to require consent for Randstad to contact my medical practitioners.
That worker, after a month of follow ups, visit to their office and so on, then advised the position was not actually available.
Randstad had failed to ensure their own information regarding the advertised position was accurate or up to date.
Another worker failed to respond to an email enqui...
Bloody rude and accused me of being 'defensive'
After contacting Randstad looking for contract work I had a call one of the rudest calls from a young lady who decided to contact me about a position a applied for. Said she had my resume and then asked me 'what are you good at' cut me off during my answer with 'I know what job you do now you don't need to tell me that I want to know what your skills are' quite frankly if she had bothered to read my resume it would have been clear. I will not be dealing with Randstad again!!!
Inexperienced little kiddies
I signed up with this place at their Derrimut office after I took a redundancy from my last job and they're constantly advertising for drivers.Almost 30 years experience in my game I'm being interviewed by some schoolgirl with an ego,waste of time,never got 1 call for employment, luckily I signed up with Driver hire as well and have had constant work for 6 months, I don't take kindly to someone with no experience questioning my experience,should be zero stars I say.
