8 Reviews of Randstad Singapore Pte Ltd for and by Recruiters

Below are reviews of Randstad Singapore Pte Ltd given by the ex-recruiters. All information are taken from Glassdoor.com


Pros

Well-known brand. Roles coming in from BD team and other teams all time which makes life easier. Depending on your market, the database might be very relevant and have lots of good candidates (depends on market though). Not overly-demanding on working long hours like other companies.

Cons

Hard to get on with the job – many many layers of management (mostly overpaid expats) who will do their best to drag you from your desk and interrogate you monthly, weekly, daily… Some managers really got nothing to do except create problems, especially those expat ones who no longer do recruitment and have moved into made-up roles. No chance of promotion unless you’re in the right clique, despite what they claim.

Advice to Management

It’s about the RECRUITERS, not the MANAGEMENT.


Pros

If you’re fresh into the workforce and keen on recruitment sales, Randstad provides you with a generalised recruitment training ground, moulded on the company’s “best practices” or assumptions to get things moving along. IF you are hungry, bare your fangs and you’ll likely to succeed here.

Cons

Wherever you come from, be prepared to lose your individuality or your uniqueness along the way. The WOW factor that got you hired? It wont be relevant anymore a couple of months into the role as you’ll be recommended to follow some best practices of client engagement. Do your own market research if you’re joining the firm, some industries are harder to recruit than others and miracles ARE expected of you sometimes. … Show More

Advice to Management

You must broaden your Skill Set – Fixing You must work on your Areas of Opportunity – Fixing You must become more Well Rounded – Fixing You need a Development Plan – Fixing You are to blame for your Areas of Nontalent – Fixing Repeat this often enough to employees and understand that its reminiscent of a bad relationship whereby it ultimately ends up in a divorce. Then again, you are Randstad.


Pros

One of the things that strike me most about Randstad is its focus on its people – it continuously looks at how it can help its employees succeed in their jobs, how it can improve itself and its culture. Motivation levels in the office are high – to preserve the awesome culture, the management team places strong importance in hiring the right people who possess the same values, as opposed to capable people who are clearly not a fit for the organisation. Love the team spirit here – and the spirit of innovation that exists throughout the organisation, both locally and globally. The Group has an internal policy of promoting at least 80% of their staff – which is a value that all offices hold in high regard and actively practice. They truly believe when they focus on delighting their employees, their people will in turn delight their clients and candidates.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Advice to Management

Stay true to your culture – there aren’t many recruitment companies in Singapore that can boast a culture and management as strong as Randstad


Pros

Management is dedicated and keen on developing talent! Management go the extra mile to mentor and develop individuals Pleasant working environment and lovely colleagues across the organisation Randstad continuously looks to improve the working environment Provides work life balance as long as you are able to handle your own portfolio

Cons

Strict on KPIs, however on a positive note it benefits individuals/billing consultants to stretch their potentials and go beyond their comfort zones. In return provides revenue for individuals and the organisation as a whole!

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work!


Pros

Recruitment consulting is a challenging job and requires resilience, commitment and passion for dealing with people. Given the many unpredictable factors we face on a daily basis, it is extremely crucial to have an understanding and supportive company culture – which is exactly what Randstad Singapore provides. With a set of excellent leaders both at a Directorial and Managerial level, they know how to bring out your… Show More

Cons

Being a consulting / sales role a good measure of resilience and passion is needed to get you through some days. A career in recruitment consulting anywhere across Singapore is bound to measure you by various metrics, though in Randstad the company culture is designed in such a manner that it supports you to push yourself and achieve big results for yourself and the company. This high-performance culture can be intim… Show More

Advice to Management

Thanks for making Randstad different from the rest.


Pros

Strong and supportive management, with some having had been with the company for more than a decade. One of the best big recruitment companies to work for, with attractive commission payout and promotions to various functions. High achievers in the company that sets the benchmarks for quality service delivery.

Cons

Look to invest more in the systems and job boards/job ads in quality and quantity. As the company is growing fast, the systems and recruitment tools needs to keep up with the demands.

Advice to Management

Definitely, a good job done in managing the business. Keep up the good work done.


Pros

We have a strong management team and the environment is supportive for staffing professionals at all stages of their career. Internal mobility is preferred as promotion through the ranks are generally used over external recruitment.

Cons

Organization is massive so tend to be harder to get the spotlight if you are doing well but not among the best.


Pros

You will have work all the time. I left the company within 1 year. Their attrition rate is very high. 4-5 People leave every other month saying various reasons , but basically people leave when they realise the des parity

Cons

You get less than half of what an expat gets who does the exact same job and exact same work as you do.

Advice to Management

Have some sort of equality towards your local employees. Of course having westerners in the company is for diversity but pay them equally for same job and same targets
