    I have been working at Hays full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Hays a few years and the staff are what make Hays with support available at anytime to anyone in not just professional life but also personal life. Like any job there are ups and downs but I have always been treated fair, sometimes more than fair! I have worked in different teams in Hays Dublin and the atmosphere is always consistent, positive and good Craic.

    Training is also industry best with constant training provided to all levels of staff with a dedicated Trainer also based in Dublin a plus, particularly for associates.

    Cons

    Base salaries are lower than they should be, flexible/remote working should also be introduced

    Advice to Management

    Look at salaries and flexibility. Keep talking to staff and encourage them to speak up if unhappy or having issues as they will be looked after
