Newest Review: ... on my own CV, being professional I chose not to argue with her. I was told the job was 1 thing and when I got there found out it was something different in which i've never done before or have experience doing. Also had to ask repeatedly for forms sending so I could get paid. When I did go to register with them I was asked to go somewhere out of my city when theres actually one where I live. She never even explained or told me a single thing about how temp jobs work or how Hays works. Seems her and Hays have no idea what their doing. The sooner I can get out of this boring job and away from Hays the better. Wouldn't reccomend them to anyone.... more

Enlisted with them 3 times over 2 years and hopeless!I'm an Electrician and they have never contacted me regarding positions.As an Industrial Electrician also with Mining Experience I thought I'd have a chance?Yet again I contacted them today (24/10/2012) and oh we don't have anything, then why do they advertise for positions I am available for!

Having joined them less than 3 weeks ago already had enough of this unprofessional agency. Have had nothing but lies from them. The job title has constantly changed which is rediculous as when you have a job you have just the 1 job title. The length of the job constantly changes started as 6 weeks, then went down to 3 and when I phoned to ask which it was the reply I got from the girl I registered with was "I have no idea". She even had the cheek to lie to my face about what was on my own CV, being professional I chose not to argue with her. I was told the job was 1 thing and when I got there found out it was something different in which i've never done before . Read the complete review

I've had similar experiences to the rest of you. I am with a company as a contractor and I got the role through another agency but the company I'm with have Hays as the Preferred Supplier so I have to go through them in some strange arrangement.After the massive error by someone at Hays giving the press the rates of contractors they obviously tried to re-coup some damage to their reputation by offering thier clients cost saving measures by cutting all contractor wages by 10%. My experience with their system is not much better either. I've been to them for a few jobs in the past and they never call back.

I left my registration feeling completely let down and had been made to feel like dirt throughout the entire meeting. After booking to register that week, a male consultant called me to say he believed my CV matched a job he had and that he had sent it forward to the employer; with confidence that I would get an interview. Upon arriving I was met by a girl who began going through my CV with me (all the time looking me up and down) during which the consultant who had given me the call arrived. Before even seating himself he demanded to know if we had dicussed my unrelated university degree (Dance), looking down his nose at the subject area the ... Read the complete review

What an awful experience. This company is absolutely atrocious. Their emails are full of spelling mistakes akin to txt spk. You are lucky if they remember to pay you. If a class of 16 year olds ran a company, Hays it what you would expect.
