"Nauseatingly Bad"Feb 11, 2020

Current Employee - Recruitment Consultant

I have been working at Hays full-time for more than a year

Pros

The air you breath in the office is free

Cons

Hay's offices's are set up like a call center. Row's of desks with computers where you slave away under the watchful and judgmental eye of management. They encourage you to "'make mistakes while... you're learning" but then criticize and critique you for doing so. One of the main problems is that management genuinely believes they are beyond reproach and have a mentality of working against you, rather than with you. Worker's are often critiqued and belittled which only helps to zap any motivation there might be. Monthly meeting's are held to try and rally the troops by awarding dollar store trophies to top performers while reminding everyone that "we can and should all do better." There are very few redeeming qualities that are accompanied with working at Hays. Brutal pay that's barely survivable. Complex commission structure that is created to squeeze every last dollar out of its workers while making the false promise of "one day you will move up." Realistically only a handful ever do. Hay's has a lot of potential, however, managements stubborn unwillingness to realize their own shortcomings are the problem with a lot of the issues will eventually lead to their demise.

Advice to Management

There are better recruitment agencies that offer better pay, better commission, better management, and flexible works days etc. Good employees don't need you, you need them. Act like it.
