bad company bad job - avoid
Content Reviewer (Former Employee) –  County Dublin24 January 2020
I came from a big European country to work in this company.

After I arrived in Ireland, they delayed my starting date ( me and others ) because they insisted about calling and sending mail to english speaking referee ( having experience only in non english speaking countries this was very difficult and not clarified from the beginning).

when starting your first job in Ireland you are on emergency tax ( half salary ) until receiving and giving your PPS number to the company ( about 1 month with normal company ).

I did everything I was supposed to, but after 3 months, I'm still on emergency tax, I get only half my salary. Ireland Tax administration cannot take me out of emergency tax because of Hays incompetent payroll team.

I'm leaving this joke of a company as soon as possible.

many many better company to work for.

Stressful and underpaid.
Associate Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dublin13 February 2020
Hays is a great place to start your recruitment career as they would take anyone no matter the background, if person is driven enough.
However, they pay is the lowest on the market and are the only rec. agency in Dublin with trash-hold.
Stressful environment with no support from the managers. People usually stay around 8-10 months if they are not fired before.
