Blacklisted Companies

Dear Friends,

We have heard from many of you out there complaining about companies who exploited you by forcing you to work long hours, delaying salary payment and even dismissing you without any valid reasons.

We want you to be brave and  expose such errant employers by posting the company names and wash their dirty laundry in public.

It will also alert  many other people from working for such shitty employers.

Simply post your rant below on the comment page if you have a particular complaint against certain employers you  came across and want others to be forewarned.

Thanks and be brave Singaporeans!

    GUMI Pte Ltd
    Hoe Leong / Arkstar Offshore

    If you see these companies, please RUN !!!
    All these bosses terminated their staffs with no valid reason. They changed their staffs like changing clothes. The worst of these 3 is Chemstation cos the VP was very fond of this PA of Chairman and listen whatever this PA requested. With all the “authority” from VP, she will throw her work load to VP’s Secretary. Basically everyday she has nothing to do in the office. She will have long lunch with the VP , or chatting in VP’s room …. happily eating potatoes chips.. .. They even apply the same day for leave. Yes… that VP is married !!

    Please don’t ever join this companies.
    First of all, the HR are screw up. They will try all means to lure you in joining the company by misleading the informations of your position.

    Apparently, there are few categories of employees in the company. They are SEE (Salary-Exempted Employee), SNE (Salary- Non exempted Employee) and HNE (Hourly Non-exempted employee). I was supposed to be under SNE group as a technician. Different categories have different benefits. Initially, they told me that my annual leaves is 16 days.

    But the employment agreement stated 12 days. My expected salary asked for $X, they offer me basic salary $X-300. Plus another $300 for transport allowance.

    The employment agreement stated I was under SEE category, by right, the benefits should be better than SNE. everything was signed already but ends up is the HR made the mistake. Mobile allowance stated as $50 but applied that time, said is only $25 because i was under SNE.

    1 day, i was on MC, I submitted the MC the next day, end of the month, they deduct my 1 day pay of absence. Clarified with them, they said is their mistake, reimbursed me that 1 day of pay.

    Every now and then change policies like changing clothes. More and more people are leaving the company because of these issues.

    Going for reservist on 31 Jul 2015 to 14 Aug 2015. Worked for entire month of Jul 2015. End of the Jul month payslip stated there was a deduction of on 2 weeks ICT. They are supposed to deduct on the month of Aug, but I got a feeling they purposely deducted on the month of July. Log a complaint to MOM against the company, waiting for investigations.

    An ex colleague of mine working in this company told me that the HR had lost his son birth certificate while he is trying to apply for child care leave in the system.

    Conclusion: do you still want to join Edwards Lifesciences (Singapore)?

    After completion of the job, i was accused that I did not do my job at all and that none of the units out of all the blocks assigned was given any flyers. After that, he demanded me to return all the leftover flyers. However, i realised that he gave me more than 1000 pieces at the beginning ( which i did not count). This is just a scheme so that he could accuse me of not giving out any flyers at all at the end of the day. Furthermore, he state that i should pay him instead. Even though the web state that the pay would be 1000 pieces $20, I was given 2 types of flyer to give out which should be 2000 pieces but is only counted as 1000 pieces. I find it meaningless to argue with this unethical, irresponsible, disrespectful and prevaricator employer that i decided to forgo my pay. Thus, they are just people who scheme to hire people as free labour. Please avoid working with them.

    This restaurant in Robertson Quay called Rosso Vino rans by Italian mafia who are racist against the Singaporeans. They look down at us and verbally said that they Italians ARE superior and that is why all Singaporeans are having the left overs. They did fired my sister last year and up to now, she still have a trauma getting job with any moh white superior. Look what devastating effect the Manager name Salvo did to her. Yet some people those who suck up the white supremacists back him up so much. These people will definitely be betrayed one day. Don’t ever gain employment from this company.

    SunGard is a fintech company which has questionable HR practice.
    1. The senior management are all French origin and the middle layer made up of FT Indians. No Chinese or Singaporean in professional or management level.
    2. The few Singaporeans or Chinese are relegated to support or admin role.
    3. They have recently decided to offshore support function to India and eliminated around 10+ jobs that was previously part of the graduate training program.
    4. Before I was let go, the company refused to release me from my non compete clause and HR and threatened to pursue legal actions against me if I ever work for a fintech firm again. My supervisor even overloaded me with work in the final few weeks and threatened to bad mouth me if I don’t finish them.
    5. I am just a junior application support staff, hired as part of your graduate program, let off due to restructuring and now your disallowing me to find a job in the area which I am trained at?

    I will not recommend any Singaporeans or Chinese to work at the company.
    I also hope the brokers, which I think SunGard does a large part of business with, realize what they are doing when they give business to this company. You are funding the lifestyle and retirement of the foreigners, strengthening their stranglehold on your technology and allow them to continue to look down on your operation people.

    Stay away from SunGard
