Temporary/Contract Labourer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – February 2, 2016
enjoyed working for randstad, was placed in a variety of different work environments, recruiters were accommodating and friendly. No problems with management, only issue was instability of contracts (being out of work for a couple of weeks at a time during down seasons)
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – New Westminster, BC – February 1, 2016
The management and staff of Randstad are friendly and approachable. They were most helpful in providing employment to its pool of workers. They coordinated closely with their principal customers with regard to manpower deployment.
valuable experience of Canadian Industry as I was new permanent resident.

factory (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – December 17, 2015
No full time jobs but you work for very low wages and the promise of full time position worked for 9 months for company and moved to Paris and was told that I would not be going to Paris so I would say that this is not very good company to work for so do not believe all that is promised to you
Data Entry (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – November 30, 2015
I worked for Randstad for a couple of years and they were a fine agency. Never gave me any trouble but it never felt very personal. I was just filling a job and that was it. The jobs they placed me in were fine and they paid OK. I left to try and find better paying work elsewhere.
found me work quickly
did not feel very personal, just another job and worker to them
labourer (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – November 26, 2015
I went through the testing and registration then applied for numerous positions that were advertised only to be told by a staff member that they don't actually have those spots to fill,they do it to get resumes in the door. I call it job creation for the staff so that they have a job. I registered in may and after months passed they haven't given me any work. ...TOTALLY WASTE OF ANYBODYS TIME
Drafting Support Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – November 22, 2015
Very relaxed working environment with nice people and managers. Everyone is friendly, including top people. In fact, I worked there for a year I still don't know who was whose boss. They all wanted to finish the work cooperatively rather than ordering around. I also liked the diversity of people at the company and how well they got along all coming from different cultures and religions.
Spécialiste des comptes payables (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – November 3, 2015
Environment is very important to me so this is what is good about working at Randstad. I am glad to have had the opportunity to work here and gain more experience, which in the end will allow me to be more confident in finding another job.
Great personalities to work with. This helped especially in this fast paced environment
Billing Specialist (Contract) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – October 19, 2015
- Managing time sheets to prepare for weekly payroll run. - there were too many manual processes, which created numerous exceptions. Because of the pace, there was little focus on process improvement. - Accounting System was not very intuitive, thus too much reliance on Job aids. - Very supportive management that treated staff with care and respect. This really helped to ease the truly stressful task of timely payroll processing.

Temp (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – August 25, 2015
As a temp worker working through Randstad I have always found their attitude horrible and low class. Compared to some other agencies in my area this one seems to have the most jobs, but dealing with them gets you nowhere. They will mislead you often just to get you into a position.
Temporary Contract-Customer Care Reprsentative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – August 19, 2015
With hard work and dedication my 2 to 4 week contract was extended until I unfortunately chose to commence maternity leave after four and a half months. A typical day would be checking and responding to emails and opening 3 systems, combining all of the information to one place, sending it off to a different team so that they could do their job.Sadly, Management is the reason I have chosen not to return to the placement I had been with. My coworkers were extremely helpful if ever I needed any assistance in anything at all. The hardest part of this job was the lack of professionalism I experienced with my immediate supervisor. The most enjoyable was the amount of information and knowledge I learned and took away with me.
