good place to work if you are looking for a filler between jobs as they do many contracts. typical day is very routine, management is good, hardest part was getting to some of the work locations, easier if you had a car, enjoyed working with some of my fellow colleagues
Various positions (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 November 2018
I have been working with Excel HR for a few years, they have always been pleasant to work with and very accommodating. Whether you're trying to break into office work or looking for you permanent work home, they are the best in Ottawa.
HR Coordinator (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 25 August 2018
I have been working on a job placement through ExcelHR for over 7 months. I have been very happy working with and dealing with them. My placement agent has always been very good to me and very quick to respond to any communication by either myself or the company that I have been working with.
Resource & Account Manager -Liaise (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 31 March 2018
I was surprised to see that their most tenued employee had been with the company for only 2 years. I see why; there is no work life balance, you work for ExcelHR to succeed while you are expected to give up your life completely uncompensated. They expect all your time and their commission structure is impossible to achieve unless you work 23 hr days (they will leave 1 hr for you to go get a coffee). Management are incompetent and have an attitude of greatness, very condescending and unappreciative. They have a shopping day which is a slap to the face, they can give you that money (which trust me you have worked like a dog for) to shop and they decide how you spend it, instead of compensating you accordingly for your work and letting you keep that for your own pleasure. Not for someone who has a life, planning a life or wants to live.
As a former employee, we are surprised to see that your knowledge of our company is not that accurate. Our most tenured employee has actually been with us for 27 years. In fact, we have 6 employees who have been with us for over 20 years and another 14 who have been with us for 10+ years. We value our team and are invest in their professional development.
We agree that this industry is not a great fit for everyone. This is a sales role – your efforts impact your rewards. But that’s the nature of the business. Our standard work hours are 8am to 5pm and there is no expectation for team members to work additional hours. There are some employees who are dedicated to making placements and stay late to work on a search, but it is certainly not a requirement.
We have an open door policy and encourage two-way communication. If there is ever a concern about hours worked, or commission structure, team members are welcome to consult any member of the leadership team. As you look ahead to your next opportunity, we would strongly recommend that you chose in-person communication to voice your concerns so that you can reach a solution. Posting negative comments online doesn’t get you any further ahead personally or professionally.

Very Good Contracting Company
Contract Worker (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 October 2017
Much Like any other contracting company depending on contract salary is nice still uncertain whether or not i get benefits. Only been with excel for less than a year.
Very pleasant and friendly team! Great agency to work for!
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 12 September 2017
My first interview with an intake officer at the agency was very straight and to the point. She encouraged me and gave me the confidence I needed! Wonderful people with a lot of class and encouragement! The assignment I have is very challenging and have lots to learn! The staff are great and so helpful! I learned a new program that is so interesting and great to work with. It stores data, does billing, access clients to start programs of their own etc. Anytime I need help from a manager, they are available and so patient with me. I am demanding sometimes to much on myself, I want to accomplish things without to much errors. The hardest part is that I tend to take my job personally and want to do too much so I have a hard time knowing what is the most important thing to do first as I think everything is important. What I love about this job is the people I work with and enjoy what we are doing for our clients as to become better for their new careers.
Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 September 2017

Salary wise need to increase as working 11.25 dollars per hour is too less
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 July 2017
ExcelHR has very diverse and interesting job opportunities in the private and public sector. They are always very friendly and helpful when calling and presenting me for positions. They maintain the upmost professionalism and always keep my best interests at heart. I would recommend them to everyone!
Administartive Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 July 2017
I've worked with excel on a few contracts over the past 2 years. I have found their services to be fantastic. They have always been nothing but professional, honest, and trust worthy. I have never had a bad experience with them. When I met them for an interview, it was very thorough, they asked good questions, I completed testing, and they did references. They explained the whole process so I knew what to expect. I was hired on contract shortly thereafter. I've had great salaries and was placed in really amazing work environments. They followed up with me throughout my contract and I found them to be really professional.
I'm really surprised at the other comments, my experience was nothing but amazing!
I highly recommend excelHR!
great opportunities, competitive and high paying salaries, professionalism.

Senoir Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 May 2017
I have been dealing with ExcelHR for just over two years now and can honestly say that every interaction I’ve had has been so great! They are very professional and friendly, and I am impressed with how well their company is managed. I have received check in emails once in a while, and messages just to make sure everything is going well, and any time I have had any questions they are more than willing to help answer them. During the staffing process of a particular contract, they went above and beyond! They aided in the update of my resume as well as guided me through the process making me feel at ease! Being out of work wasn’t on their list of priorities (nor mine), and it wasn’t too long before I was working again! They are such an amazing Agency, and I have received nothing but great experiences from them!
Recruitment and Placement Consultant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 April 2017
ExcelHR has a company culture like no other. If you want to be part of an amazing team, create amazing friendships, and get rewarded for your hard work, then this is the place for you. Yes, you are busy, work long hours and are often stressed out because of it. The reality is that you are working on the client's clock. If you want to be successful, you put in the extra hours in order to fill your orders and meet the clients needs. Management is always there for you, guiding you through your desk and clients. If you want to succeed and grow your desk, you can. You just need to put in the work. This job is not for everyone. You need the right personality and need to want it. This isn't for people who want to work a regular 9-5. This company invests in you and in return, you will invest your time and energy into your work and team. I have learned such valuable skills from working at ExcelHR and since leaving, I have been successful in my career thank to everything I learned at this job.
Company culture, fun work events, great salary and incentives, fantastic training, support from management, opportunities for advancement.
Long hours, unpaid overtime, stressful deadline-driven environment.
Recruitment and Placement Consultant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 March 2017
I am excited to come to work every day. People always tell me that they can see I'm very passionate about what I do and that I must love my job - I really do! I am blessed to love the people I work with, have opportunities to learn new things every day and challenge myself. It is rewarding to help people find work and help out clients find the perfect candidate.
The best things about my career in staffing are the people. The clients and candidates we work with are loyal and make it fun to come to work. I love a new challenge and helping make the right match. We represent wonderful people in the Ottawa area and do our best at finding work for those we can based on our clients' needs. We get to meet people every day during interviews and get to know new industries with supporting our clients.
If you are goal driven, self-motivated and love meeting new people, this is a great career path for you. We work in a team oriented environment and love reaching personal goals. I have the opportunity to manage my own desk while getting the support from our very approachable leaders. We are positive and enthusiastic and love to have fun!
I couldn't be happier to call work my second home. At times we will work long hours, but simply because we believe in serving our customers needs and delivering the best possible overall experience.
I feel spoiled to be surrounded by people I love in a beautiful office where I continue to learn and grow. I've had the opportunity to learn so much over the years and continue to learn new things every day. I've had the opportunity to participatemore... in various courses and programs in support of my professional development.less
Dynamic team, approachable leaders, opportunity for growth
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 31 January 2017
I started working for EXCEL HR in April 2016 and It was a great experience as the staff was friendly and knowledgable and gave me the list of tasks I was to preform which made my transition into the company a lot easier.
Recruiter and Placement Consultant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 November 2016
Interesting and fast paced environment with the ability to launch you into a professional career. I always learned something new, and was able to apply many aspects of my schooling to my every day life.
