Rude, appalling and disrespectful
I went to this recruitment agency a long time ago right after I finished my degree. I can still remember the woman who interviewed me was rude and condesending. I was shocked by the lack of professionalism from the entire team. I left feeling humiliated and that I just wasted my time. They never found me work and I found a proper role myself. If you're reading this, you can find work directly on your own. Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do something, those people are miserable with their own sad, pathetic lives.
Disgusting Behaviour: Calls Indians 'smelly' and says they are 'taking over'
Sitting in reception in their North Sydney office I was disgusted to overhear the language used in the office. Sinclair Recruitment, your walls are thin! I heard blatantly racist jokes and comments such as "the dumb Indians", calling them "smelly", and suggestions that they are "taking over", followed by gross laughter erupting from the whole office.
Seeing the other reviews on this company, I am not surprised. Any HR department/company should beware of working with these people as this is a lawsuit waiting to happen. If you are caught working with them, feel free to explain to upper management why you decided to partner with these people despite the multiple allegations of poor ethics and behaviour.
Avoid at all costs!!
Sinclair recruitment nationwide are the worst recruiter you can work with! They drink on the job, do not call back candidates and even bag employers and candidates behind their backs in group emails send to all states... If you are an employer that will pay a low fee, you will be put at the bottom of the list... The owner [name removed] only cares about the big bucks whilst she is sitting at her desk drinking glass after glass of moët. They bull their new employees with numerous sexual harassment claims and also have recently refused to hire a ...transgender recruiter because she was transgender... [name removed] made a point of it because she was transgender and had a laugh about it. Either use internal recruiters and do not pay the excessive fees they charge of 10-12% based on the salary of the candidate you need to hire, or go to another agency if you are need of one. If I could give them zero stars, I would! Just avoid sinclair recruitment at all costs!!
Refreshing to have a recruiter who calls back
Overall very good experience - I appreciated having a recruiter who either spoke to me on the spot or phoned me back regularly. I felt that I was well-represented to the client. The end result of the process was that I decided not to proceed with my application due to some reservations about the role, and I felt empathy and support from Carol at Sinclair in Sydney.
Best Recruiter I have ever worked with in my Professional Career!
I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Emily Marles, in my 17 years of my real estate career Emily was the best recruiter I have ever dealt with. I live in Cairns and went to a local company who would not return my call or emails and when they did it was weeks after getting a job. Emily called me before the interview and got me pumped and excited, she also conducted a Skype interview to get to know me to find me the best employer in my area. Sinclair Recruitment is not located in Cairns but better then Cairns Recruitment companies and a must to use to find your next employee.
This company has an over-all poor service of its employer clientele, with gross lack of communication or duty of care. They have deceptive tactics to glean private details about a prospective employers vacant positions and current employees. On multiple occasions Sinclair's staff in both Brisbane and Sydney have acted a lack of professionalism.
Overall Bad Experience
In business most of us know how much it costs to recruit new staff and how time consuming this can be. Don't double your workload and waste more money utilising recruitment agencies, they are frustrating, pushy and candidates are mislead about available positions. "No recruitment agencies" this needs to be placed on your position advertisements if you do not want to be harassed by recruitment agencies. My personal experience with Sinclair recruitment was much less than professional.
