Temporary Worker (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 23 March 2017
This is a good option for getting experience in the industrial sector. Like any temporary employment, there aren't benefits or job security and the wages can sometimes be pretty low for the work that you do.

SENIOR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 15 November 2016
This assignment is perfect for me. It is a very professional organization where I can utilize my advanced office administration skills and organizational skills. The office is close to home and the work hours and salary are very good. Management and my co-workers are all very sociable and nice people and are extremely helpful in learning about the organization to assist me in being successful during this assignment.
Overqualified employee (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 4 March 2017
By far the worst agency out there...unless you really want to work at Linimar. Just go on kijiji and see the absurd amount of adds they have up that stay up because the jobs are garbage. A good place for students who want a couple months work but someone with credentials and actual experience in the work world should definitely go elsewhere. They actually think they're qualified to give someone with far more experience in the work force then them career advice when you don't want to work at one of the garbage placements they hook you up with. It's hilarious!
Office Administrator/Leasing Agent (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 19 January 2017
I did enjoy working for the property management company that Randstad assigned me to. I got the chance to learn another widely used property management software and different procedures & processes than what I was used to. All in all it was a positive experience.
Temporary agencies are a good way of checking out different companies
Length of assignment was not known until the day it ended
distribution contractor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 2 December 2016
The job was repetitive and required attention to detail, while ticketing and packaging. Co-workers were sometimes helpful. Turn over was very high. Payroll was inconsistent with lots of mistakes, and sometimes non-payment, onsite manager was more interested in recruiting new staff, and training was very poor.
General Labourer/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 13 February 2017
A temp agency, who appears very friendly at first. But the things they say behind closed doors about their workers, is appalling, and cruel. They really don't care about your health, unless it suits them too. If your life, can't fit their requirements, they won't find you a placement. In fact, they'll string you along, as long as they can, just so you don't go elsewhere. In hind sight, this is the last temp agency I should have ever chosen to go with. I've heard way better things about Prodigy, and should have gone there instead. Would have saved me some wasted time.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 February 2017
Normal 8 hours a day How to use all sort of equipment. Very friendly management. Workplace culture: I worked with people from all over the world. The hardest part of my job is fast pace and heavy lifting.
Customer Service Representative- Marketing (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 24 October 2016
Randstad is a great agency to work for,
I was able to work with a great company I enjoyed my contract the staff was amazing I learned a lot in a short period of time. I was able to grasp the company's product and interrupt what I learned to help customers upgrade services based on their current business needs .This was a great challenge for me. I had an amazing team mates that helped answer all my questions and believe me I had a lot as this industry I was helping out in was all so new to me. I would of stayed forever with the company Randstad sent me to help out.
productive, nice to work in a diversed work environment
G/L - Picker/Packer, Inventory Control (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 February 2017
nice and approachable supervisor/s, they give the workers time to stretch/exercise before starting the day's work which I enjoyed most, sometimes give free lunch/snacks, it's hard to work when the weather gets to extremes - too cold/too hot but manager do their bests to solve problems and make workplace as comfortable to work at as it can be.
Great company for finding temporary work positions

Productive workplace getting merchandice ready for stores
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 20 October 2016
Worked at Randstad’s client TJX Canada in the Distribution Centre performing receiving duties such as manually loading and off-loading trailers, packaging, ticketing, labeling, operating a pump truck, lifting up to 50 pounds of boxes and helping with other general labour duties as required. The work was okay, some boxes we had to lift were heavy, but team lifting helped us from not breaking our backs.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 16 December 2016
I've been put in multiple positions with Ranstad, they've definitely helped with finding temporary work. Although they don't quite help getting you any further than that. Quick and easy way to make money for a short period of time.
