Would not recommend working at Randstad

High pressure, upper management does not value opinions, upper management too far removed from day to day operations. They talk about wanting a solid work place culture but they really do not care. Hardest part is you're doing everything and being pulled in numerous directions. The most enjoyable part of working at Randstad are weekends.


Semi-hybrid, fair wages


High pressure. Expectations too high. Cocky, think Randstad can stand by their name. Does not accept opinions, it's Randstad's way or no way.

Good place to work

decent workplace, hard to get shifts sometimes. Good place to work and allowed for flexibility. They didn't like last minute cancellations of shifts.

Le service de Rh est vraiment à l'écoute des employés et les accompagnent dans leur travail quotidien

Parfois c'est difficile de vous exprimer de la réalité de votre quotidien quand vous travaillez chez un partenaire.


Le suivi administratif très rapproché avec des retours très promoteurs et encourageant


Rien à signaler

It’s a great place to learn as a first job but unfortunately the experience will depend on who is in management that week. The turnover is extremely high (over 60%) which is ironic for a company giving advice to clients on how to reduce turnover. Staff are promoted based on sales and not ability to lead or manage people which is an entirely different skill set. So although there are some fantastic leaders the majority are ill equipped to set new consultants up for success. With lack of strong leadership it can be at times a toxic environment, that rewards doing anything for the sale, including taking it from a coworker. Everything is based on volume, not quality. If you attempt to offer both it is challenging not to burn out or have sales lag. They will give you 12 months to ramp up at a low pay. They offer shares but remove most employees prior to the program kicking in at two years. The starting salary for most has been 55k for the past decade with no raise to base. Achieving targets will be largely affected by management and how tenacious your coworkers are about saying a lead or candidate is their percentage, it’s pretty disheartening if you care about the clients or candidates.Again, if you are new to the industry it’s a great place to learn but be prepared for a roller coaster. It’s a challenging environment.

Poor management with zero direction

The management group is extremely unimpressive. They lost their only good executives to global roles, leaving behind the worst of the bunch. Specifically in finance the management team is cruel and generally shouldn't be trusted. Overall terrible place to work

Easy to work with

The interview process was easy and the job was tiring but randstad itself is a great recruiting company to work for. And they make sure that the jobs you get yay able to access weather you have transportation or games the transit.

Great pressure cooker to learn about recruitment

great place to learn everything in a short time, they do invest in training you. however the disconnect between the West and HQ in Montreal is big. The will constantly schedule meetings way before we start or during our lunch as it suits their time. We also have less supports and feel to be an afterthought, especially in promotions.Managers can be a bit toxically focused on goals and never actually help you to achieve them just ask for updates on targets at 8 am on a Monday.

Bonne façon de commencer dans le métier

J'ai eu un contrat dans un hôpital du lundi au vendredi de 8h à 16h. C'était très bien et les conditions de travail étaient bonnes. La paye correspondait à peu près à la paye de départ de l'hôpital, ce qui est très bien. Par contre, pas d'avantages sociaux sauf deux jours de congé maladie par année (avec présentation du billet du médecin). Je ne pouvais pas savoir la durée du contrat, c'était selon les besoins du client (ce que je savais à l'avance), donc difficulté à prévoir l'avenir. Évidemment, aucune sécurité d'emploi et aucune assurance-invalidité. Donc, si on a une maladie grave, pas d'assurance-salaire, on a l'assurance-emploi maladie et ensuite, c'est terminé.

Worst people to work for

You’ll work in positions that require more physical effort and have more risk of injury than any other job there but will be looked down on by Michelin employees and management. You’re paid as much as a McDonald’s employee but are given the same expectations as a Michelin employee being paid $10 more an hour than you. If you’re lucky you’ll have a good trainer who might give a few tips on lifting techniques and help you out, or you’ll have people who’ll just talk bad behind your back until you realize how terrible the job is and never return or injure yourself which is very easy to do especially with no proper lifting training. Since you’re getting injured as a Randstad employee, Michelin can still claim to be one of the safest employers. If you can’t get a job absolutely anywhere else I’d still avoid Randstad.

Physical labour entire 12 hour shift, no benefits, incompetent management

Great Company & Culture!!

Randstad is a very authentic company and they will treat you with respect and consideration far better than many employers. Depending on your direct manager your personal experience may be different. I can say that my direct manager was honest, upfront and very admirable. They generally won't micro-manage you unless business or KPI's start dropping. Otherwise if you have an entrepreneurial spirit you will thrive. Hybrid workspace with many different hubs makes for a great work life balance. Some of the best internal software systems I have ever used, seldom will you have to struggle with dysfunctional systems to get your job done and their internal IT Team fixes issues in the rare case that it occurs. Genuine diversity and inclusion and even psychological support groups. Anonymous feedback collected every 2 weeks.


Great compensation, mostly great managers, nice company culture, hybrid and superb work/life balance.


Make sure you are comfortable with the vertical (market) you are assigned to.

Entreprise qui vise les résultats sans considérer l’aspect humain de ses employés et de ses candidats

A éviter comme entreprise. Entreprise qui vise les résultats sans considérer l’aspect humain de ses employés et de ses candidats à qui il trouve un travail.

Ne pas faire affaire avec Ranstad

La compagnie ne vous accepte pas juste parce que le travail est a Lévis et que tu habites a Québec. Pour eux c'est trop loin et décide pour vous que vous ne pouvez pas faire le chemin pour aller travailler
