Singapore's Worst Job Agencies 2014

Singapore's Worst Job Agencies 2014


All these Job Agencies listed here are just wasting candidates time by calling candidates to go down for interviews at least 3 times and never got a job from these job agencies and one of these job agencies's consultants will bombard you with phone calls on your mobile and try to push you with jobs thats not suitable




1. Recruit Express

2. BGC Group Pte Ltd

3. RecruitFirst

4. Manpower

5. Kelly Services

6. Hays

7. Drake Consulting

8. Search Network



























































I again had a bad experience with a female consultant after 6 years at Recruit Express UOB Tower 1 56th floor last week .

Please be aware of this consultant as she use hard sell tactics to force candidates to take up jobs from her private clients


And here is a photo of her and her profile at LinkedIn :

RE cannot make it want..... Consultants can bomb my phone whole day. Obviously Im doing something eg with customers or infront of manager or in a meeting. I got like 10 missed calls from recruit express on a day. Canno get me, send sms or email lah. Really nothing to say lor

Manpower, many years back when I still freshie . Becos I got walking problem, the consultant outright ask whats wrong with your leg. Now got 5 years of exp with good academic / technical certs, they offer me a 1 yr contract for an it job with bank. I ask them go eat ****..

I never like re becos their IT consultants simply have no knowledge of IT. Ask many illogical qns. Eg . My previous job was from 00-01. She got the cheek to ask me if I got administer windows 2003 server during that job. WTF . BAck to the future ah.

RE also got one consultant who called me abt a job. in my cv also got quote expected salary. She then try to press the price down by 15 percent . So basically only 5-10 percent increment. After haggling for a few mins, I told her straight forward, I not interested anymore. She ji tao nothing to say.

One bad trait with most agencies is that consultants dont read ur resume. No proper job matching. Call you up and ask a thousand and one qns , when all information is on the CV. Post fake adverts to gather resumes...

btw, how does the threadstarter noe that agencies look down on low qualification...unless u r the one experiencing the insult?

well, kelly once asked me to go for an interview for an 'o' level position!! im a grad btw. ok i went for the interview and i asked for career prospect (which i noe the post doesnt offer that since it an 'o' level post)...so in the end, coy feedback i have high expectation and my agent said i said something wrong??!! wth? what's wrong w asking for prospect? im looking for career, not job.

for what i noe, agencies mostly offer entry level jobs and very popular for coys seeking temps/part time staff.


if u wan a good career, u need to apply thru Recruits paper and w experience...no experience no choice...u have to start from entry level...
