Unprofessional

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The other recruiters there would wear booty shorts while conducting face to face interviews with men. Very unprofessional work environment. They would also call people’s resumes dumb while there were people waiting in the reception area. Profanity was used constantly while potential employees were around to hear

Pros

Pay was ok

Cons

6:00 am shift

Temp laborer

I had a brief stint with TIPS . The people I dealt with at the agency seemed decent and you could usually get work if you called in early in the morning however the jobs that they sent me to were tough and low paying. I moved on fairly quickly.

Pros

Quick work, weekly pay.

Cons

Hard jobs, low pay.

great place to work

I worked at tips 2014 in the summer between university. The staff was always great to me but the jobs were sometimes rough to be honest. I went back recently in 2020 for some fill in work between jobs and they have completely improved the types of work and jobs you can get. I was offered full time and honestly if i wasn't already working, I would have taken it. The office ladies are all awesome and friendly and they know what they are doing. I have seen it, if you have the right attitude and work hard, they will always have work for you. The best way to get work is to go to the office for there dispatch and try out the jobs they have.I will always use TIPS when I need work.

Pros

friendly, busy and hard working

Productive and socialized

I learnt how to build iron shelves, The hardest part of the job is to locate where place i am to work. The company is a good place to work but basically he company takes a certain amount from my salary after two weeks of payment.

Competative and fun workspace!

It is basically firstcome-firstserve on the job for the day. but the thing I liked the most was; you get to set your own schedule. You get paid everyweek.

Casual

Pretty okay I guess, Work hard and have a good attitude. Some weeks you can be sent out everyday, and some weeks you're without work. All depends on how busy they are. Overall Tips has been good to me

Good Temporary Work resource

The Tips company will provide Safety training and equipment after the interview process. You can make extra money if you are able to drive co-workers with you to the job sites. Tips will support their Temps if you report an unsafe work environments, be aware of dangerous job assignments and ask questions to be prepared!

staff does not consider workers goals

These people only want to fill labour positions . They do not in any way help people succeed. I was being verbally abused at a worksite and i informed the staff at tips on 3 seperate occations , The reply i recieved was to keep my mouth shut and smile.

An amazing place to grow your experience

I was very nervous since it was my first job at the food industry. I taught me a lot about customer service while serving alcohol and food. It served me as an stepping stone in my serving/restaurant career. The manager was so nice to me and she said that she was going to help me gain as much experience as possible.
