Great Workplace, Underpar Supervison
At Dana, everyone would arrive approximately 5-15 minutes early, listen to an overview of what was going to be happening for the day, then go to the floor. Every hour we would rotate stations to prevent us from doing task with too much repetition and have three breaks (one every two hours).
I learned how to build and inspect their parts on multiple lines, as well as how to trouble shoot and solve mechanical issues when machinery was malfunctioning and the machine setters were busy elsewhere. Over my first two months, I also learned how to work my line as quickly and efficiently as some whom had been there for a year or two longer than I had.
My supervisor always seemed like he was great, very approachable and nice, until I realized that the issues that I would present to him wouldn't be resolved and he would pick favourites with employees.
Most of the co-workers at Dana were miserable people and some went out of their way to make their peer's work-life miserable as well. There were a select few that were either great to work with or neutral. There's an over-all lack of morale and the QC expert would pick and choose which quality she controlled based on who did her favours.
I didn't find working at Dana very hard, the tasks were simple enough, although it was difficult to keep up on some lines that I was unfamiliar with; nothing that I would not be confident that I could adjust to over time.
The sense of accomplishment I got was the most enjoyable part. Meeting

Productive office with friendly coworkers and supportive management
My typical day at work consisted of
- Making 60 cold calls in the morning through Excel spread sheets
- Linkedin searches for potential candidates
- Conducting two candidate or energy professional (referrals) meetings/interviews per day
- Two candidate presentations to Account Managers per day
- Reviewing/making adjustments to resumes
- 2-3 reference checks per candidate
- Entering all e-mails, phone call conversations, resumes, personal information and voice mail messages into ProConnect database
- Mapping out potential clients departments or divisions using Visio
- Organizing my Lead Account Manager's meetings with my own meetings and ensuring that they were compatible with each others schedules.
- Researching Oil&Gas companies to keep up with market trends and news
I learned a great deal about the oil and gas industry, different engineering/energy professionals and what their jobs consist of. I also learned different tactics on how to approach different personalities.
The challenge I faced in my job was to ensure that both the recruiter and the account manager communicated sufficiently so that they could relay the correct information back to either the candidate or the client.
What I enjoyed most was meeting new people and hearing each individuals career story and their accomplishments. After every meeting I always learned something new.
Management was very supportive and everyone was made clear of their three expectations.
1. Positive Attitude

Ranstad delivered on their promises
My dealings with Randstad were brief and thoroughly enjoyable. They delivered on their promise of employment to me, and best of all they guaranteed a wage of at least $15 an hour at a time when the minimum wage in Alberta was much less. I was impressed, and the time it took from interview to employment was speedy and painless.
While my experience was great, I do have second hand knowledge of an experiences that was less so. When I was in the Ranstad office (formerly on Roper Road), a middle aged man in an interview was having a less successful time. He was basically berated by the interviewer over successive gaps in his resume and her doubting his credibility. Instead of just saying she couldn't help him, she went a step further and tried to hammer home the point that none of the companies she worked with would want him for any position. This man was incredibly mild mannered and didn't even go so far as to talk back to her, but rather he maintained his composition and remained mannerly. When she noticed how polite he was, the Ranstad agent reverted to a pseudo polite composure, and "rewarded" him by referring him to a government job search website that literally anyone can access. Watching this interaction transpire was unpleasant, not only because of the way this very young and privilged woman was speaking to an obviously road weary and unemployed middle aged man. But also because it confirmed a long held suspicion; Ranstad works on behalf of the companies seeking emp

Be aware. They deliberately try to obtain illegal personal info for hiring.
1. When you visit this branch for interview/appointment, you have to "sign in" on their iPad and take a picture of yourself. This image is to be added on your profile and remain in the database. This is not a model agency! Why do they include applicant's picture on the profile? Race&looking are definitely some of the criteria they use to filter their candidates.
2. Recruiters send you an electronic payroll document, asking your FULL date of birth and Social Insurance Number WITHOUT presenting you a single position. And again, all this information will be stored on their database and will be used for filtering candidates illegally. Since they already knows that asking these info is illegal, they rather pretend like just getting you ready for payroll. Afterwards, they'll simply ghost you :)
So basically on their database, your photo and age are attached to the profile and to be used for hiring.
It's literally Randstad drive you to submit your resume with photo and age while you're not realizing it.
Mind you, their work ethic and mentality is just like USED CAR DEALERS.
They're essentially sales people with no actual knowledge of your working field. When you do "interview" with them, you'll notice how they have NO IDEA what your job is about. But are amazing at sweet talk and backstabbing :D
DO NOT TRUST THEM!!!

Randstad itself is a great company, my department was not
Randstad is a really good company to work for, the department I worked for however was not. The company has lots of weekly and monthly events that make working for them fun. Other departments were very happy and the employees looked forward to coming to work everyday. The people in other departments had lunches together and liked their co workers. The department I worked for was an awful experience. There was little to no guidance and the managers did not have the skills necessary or the ability to be good managers. The company has a great atmosphere but our departments was very oppressive. Everyone had their headphones in and could not care less about who was sitting next to them. Any events the company was having were usually not attended by my department or were attended briefly. Most were looking for a way out of the department. We had a legit morale problem and the managers were unable to solve it by their halfhearted attempts. You will know within an hour which department this is if you get hired because there will be no attempt to integrate the new coworker within the department. You will be left to your own devices very quickly and most likely will not have an on boarding.

Don't get hurt!
I got injured while on assignment and the client let me go and Ranstad didn't want to even know my name anymore.
They claimed it wasn't a workplace injury.
It was 100% but ended up not serious so I didn't have to pursue it.
When I see an advertisement from Ranstad I bypass it immediately.
They still send me e-mails periodically for placements, I'd like to say "they got some nerve" but the truth is they are that dis-organized they don't even realize.
Obviously they can't fill their positions and are scrambling for candidates.
I've been around the warehousing industry for 30 years and I see jobs listed by Ranstad and other agencies that have been on the temp market for 10+ years, the positions never stay filled because they are that bad and the companies just shop them around from one agency to another.
My advice to anyone looking for employment is that you are better off to seek permanent employment with a company that is hiring directly. Although some companies do hire agency people, the majority of the time it is just "dangling the carrot" to increase productivity and nothing will ever come of it.
I've worked at assignment were the companie utilizes 60 or 70 temps and hires about 1 or 2 a year so the other 68 will think they might get the "brass ring".
Not for me, thanks!

They will do their job if you are willing to do yours.
Judging by other people's reviews it would seem that your own experience with Randstad can be a bit of a hit and miss, but my own experience with the Toronto branch has been good overall, so I am inclined to focus on the positives here.
Firstly, job placements were very speedy. I put in the word in the morning that I was ready to work, and recruiters responded in the afternoon with relevant opportunities. Staff are friendly and professional. You are informed ahead of time regarding the nature of the jobs and the work hours. The employment opportunities they offer are fair, and you get your paychecks on time.
Obviously temper your expectations to fit realities: you most likely won't find your dream jobs here. Most offers are temporary (permanent pending on performance), probably dreadfully dull and relatively low paying, but if you are willing to put in the hours then you will get paid. Don't expect to be treated like a rock star and be prepared to work. Everything's fair n square.
Points positifsQuick placements; easy jobs; reliable pay system
Points négatifsTemporary positions with few additional benefits; jobs but not careers

Will give you dirty jobs
I have read some success stories on the reviews I have read. I had been registered with them in 2013 and at that time they were not helpful as far as finding work for me. Since that time I had steady work but not through them. I tried again in July 2018 hoping they had improved. As I was layed off my job in January of 2018.
Again, although I have office and retail experience they tried to send me on a dirty job with minimum wage, at first I had agreed which I shouldn't have. It was out of desperation that I was considering it but thought it through and refused to go, no matter how much I was hurting financially. They should really look at peoples resumes and discuss what kind of work would you be happy doing , and how could they help you accomplish that goal. After all they are an employment agency.
Because I had refused that one job now I am black listed, which means if you ever call in to ask if there is work available and they ask for your name and then say we'll put you on the available list, start looking else where.
I have been widowed since 2014 and have to be self supporting now.
Do not count on this agency for any good jobs.
Warehouse Worker | Pickering, ON | 26 avr. 2014
Okay job... if your desperate to have any job.
A typical day at work is normal like any other job. Punch in, log in, and prepare to work 8 hours a day. There are a few things I learned from working for this agency/company. They mostly focus on productivity, punctuality, and not so much for safety. The management is okay, not the greatest but they're there if you need anything. My co-workers are okay some are friendly and some are not, depends who you meet and talk to. The most and hardest part of this job is that it's a very very fast pace environment. As a case picker at this warehouse, It's very hard labor and no consideration regardless of the weight of the items you pick. You are being timed every second, and hardly enough time for break. The only enjoyable thing about this job is "some" friendly people and the job itself, but except without the part where you're being treated as a slave!
Points positifs"Some" friendly co-workers
Points négatifsVery very fast pace, very short break, No consideration of the weight of the items being picked, they expect you to pick them up same time regardless if it's heavy or not, and constantly drilling your behind to hit productivity percentage, Not so fun!
