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!

Regds,

Gilbert Goh

    GUMI Pte Ltd
    Chemstation
    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 !!

    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.

    These are their contact number:

    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

    MMI Holdings is a terrible company. They regularly try and violate labour laws by verbally trying to force employees to quit without providing a severance. Only by contacting the ministry of manpower do they provide a severance.

    I have went to these horrible locals SME for interviews, and please do not join them as they only employ foreigners and discriminate locals, they include:

    -Hemsco(Singapore)Pte Ltd

    -Xtra Communication Pte Ltd

    Tourism Management Institute of Singapore (TMIS) hired teachers to teach English courses to students from China, Myanmar, Vietnam required by ICA before they can proceed to taking the diploma courses offered by the school. Students needed to have at least 90% attendance as well as pass the exam before qualifying for the diploma course.

    Before I started work, the Head of Department for English told me to mark the attendance sheet in pencil but to sign my name in pen so that if the students qualify for the diploma courses, they would ‘help’ the students with their attendance.

    The longer I taught these students, the more I realised that things were not right. i would sometimes get called to meet one of the student agents and was told not to report to the police if the students were absent for more than a week.

    The only time I was paid on time was before Chinese New Year. Every month after that, my payment was delayed. I eventually resigned even though I was not allowed to, under 6-month teaching contract.

    I was very glad when I did so, even though it kept my students in the lurch. The administrator later left TMIS not long after me, and I was later told by my students that nearly the whole class was cheating in the exams.

    I had brought these issues up to the Council of Private Education but received no reply, even after a few years.

    OKIE PEST MANAGEMENT PTE LTD

    The “director”named JEFFRY ONG is an untrustable person. Once he promised to complete a leftover job to a customer but insisted on receiving the payment first. But he never completed the job and blocked the customer phone. The customer decided to give up eventually

    A Real Estate Company located at Old Spring Building, Bukit Merah Central

    All these bosses retrenched their staffs with no valid reasons and cruelly with excuses of cost cutting but spend expensively on unnecessary stuffs for the company despite of staffs have been working hard for years to bring in sales profits for the company and cleared all the mess due to lousy top management’s decision making in running and managing the company. Companies’ structures are very badly done. Bring in their friends’ children or acquaintances to work in the company and fired current staffs unreasonably. Worse, they forced staffs to resign on their own instead of retrenchment to avoid from paying compensation to the staffs. Yelled at staffs as and when they wanted and blamed staffs unnecessary. Staff turnover is very high within a short period of times. High workload, peanut salary and lousy employment benefits.

  11. Boxx says:

    Htwo Education Holdings Pte Ltd (Htwo Investment Holdings Pte Ltd)

    Dont pay cpf, dont pay salary on time. Turnover rate is 2 times the number of actual employees. Harassment cases. Corporate organisation owned by family business. Collectors coming to chase for money all the time. Lines are cut off.

  12. peacock says:

    I just want to warn all to stay clear of this company called MMA Offshore Asia. The entire company is overrun by foreigners and they had to resort to putting up a misleading job ad for the position then ask you to do job scope not within your role. Managers are mostly foreigners maybe one or two local but all the executive all from Malaysians and the support staff are mostly locals.

    If you are local chinese, you shouldn’t even consider applying for the job as you go in, probably you won’t even last long. You will either be odd one or thrown to do work not within your role.

    • Taurus says:

      Hi Peacock,

      are you still working in MMA or have left the company. You seem like a disgruntled employee. Share more info about the company please.

  13. Frustrated says:

    Below are the bad and worse bosses to work with in a real estate investment holding company I am currently employed:-
    1) Kain – always throw tantrum like a spoiled child
    and very unreasonably scream at employees
    when things are not according to what she
    wanted.
    2) Tricia
    3) Financial Controller

    Don’t work for these people who will overwork and use you very badly for their own benefits…full of dirty tricks and cruel means to achieve what they wanted.

    Sieg and Zack ‘international’ company pte ltd

    I put ‘international’ because I’ve absolutely no idea what’s the company working on.

    You’ll have Zack- your worst boss who doesn’t know what he wants and doesn’t even know what he is doing. Always throws tantrum and sometimes just fired employees, just because his mom tell him.
    Yes, you’ve heard it. His mom. If you are indians, Im so sorry. Apparent this family seems to have grudge against them.

    The boss will overwork you for sure, lots of work drama and threatening craps thats not even work related.

    Project’s deadline is just asking for the impossible, with no proper planning and scheduled. Paid is also very little. If you are told to OT, be very prepared to stay overnight. Working there means you are constantly under surveillance 24hr. And you only leave if he says so.

    You get one mistake, you get nitpick by him. Endlessly.

    Sometimes you’ll be forced to sign a contract which isn’t even legal.

    In conclusions, you’ll feel more like you are working for a retard client rather than a company.

    WARNING: Please do not work for the The Panicroom (The Barber Shop), they treat their staff like shit. I was a part timer. The malay boss is the unreasonable, balding and has bad breath.

    Acceltus Pte Ltd

    I was devastated and depressed after I was terminated by Acceltus due to many reasons.

    But the other employees were excused for some reasons. At least, they are friends because they also worked with the boss in the previous companies. It was overlooked.

    1. I proposed to implement the punctuality system to reward people, but I was quickly rejected by many employees including the boss. They said results are more important than being punctual. So, I came to the office late, but I was scolded for being late. But the other employees were okay for being late. I was even scolded for not informing the boss I came back to Singapore very late.

    2. I was underpaid during the period. Lower than minimum sum. One day, the boss suddenly asked me a question instead of raising me some salary. Asking a question is like asking me whether I wanted increase in salary or not.

    I checked the bank SME loan and found out that Acceltus has borrowed SME loan from DBS.

    I recalled during the particular month last year, Acceltus requested for delay in salary. I did not mind it. But then when my performance was poor, my bonus was not awarded. Meanwhile, Acceltus sometimes used slow & poor economy as a excuse.

    3. I checked the other employees’ previous companies. Some of them shared the same previous companies. Now, some of them are working in Acceltus while the rest left Acceltus for advancement. I am not sure whether it was an issue of poaching employees at the first place.

    4. I was accused of deleting the company data. The data is not related to server data. What I did was merely documents which were copied from my former team leads and last team leads.

    During the period, one of my former team lead gave me some documents which did not belong to Acceltus but belonged to the previous company.

    I checked the boss’s previous company and found the relationship between the previous company and these documents. I wondered whether it is an issue of integrity or data confidentiality.

    5. My boss greeted every employees Happy Birthday except me. When I asked them why they never greeted me Happy Birthday, one of them suddenly made an excuse: “Sometimes, friends or employees forget the birthday dates.” It is as if it is normal to him. But in Whatsapp conversation, I can testify that every employees except me were greeted with Happy Birthday. I wondered why. I checked the employees’ previous companies and schools. They have common things: previous companies where they worked before Acceltus, and/or schools i.e university.

    6. To cover the expenditures, he promised me to issue ANZ card to me so that I would use it to book sessions or etc. But he never issued ANZ card to me, so I used my own money to book sessions. Many months later, he suddenly asked me to list down the expenditures for remuneration. I considered and later told him it was okay. I thought Acceltus was my second home. But in the end, he suddenly fired me and scolded me for asking him to refund me. He said giving birthday gift to him and later taking it back …. I felt shocked to hear like that.

    I thought the boss was nice and suddenly changed his heart. I cannot forget this line.

    7. I remembered at the very last part of my work period, I finished the task in 3 days and told my last team lead, but he said wait wait wait. Wait until almost 1 week. Meanwhile, I decided to improve the result of the task, because I did not want to do nothing. Then I checked with my last team lead for the status but he said wait wait. Then he asked me to go ahead, but too late I had holiday plan. After my holiday, my boss suddenly warned and terminated me on SAME DAY. He said he read the email. But why only email? I wondered whether he has read the online chat as well. Email is not enough without online chat. Very depressing.

    I am very sad and depressed after I was terminated by the boss. I was given two letters on the SAME day. Two letters were final warning letter and termination letter. Both letters were written on SAME DAY. But I wondered why one of two letters was POST-DATED to the next day, although they were given to me on SAME DAY.

    I remember he dislikes to hear some words such as “hope” and “wish”, but ironically at the very last day, he said some words to me “Wish you good luck”. I remembered he said “I will help you.” I am not sure whether he is willing to help me. I also remember he said “Your friends will help you.” I do not know whether I should change IT industry to other industry.

    I encountered some of my mature friends. e.g. one used to work in IT industry now works as accountant. another used to work in IT company now works as social entrepreneur.

    I am not very sure about my future. I lose hope. I do not trust in SME anymore.

    I wondered if I should leave IT industry to search for different experiences or sleep in the world?????? My future is filled with uncertainty and not very clear visions. I lost my goals already. I regretted joining SME as my first job.

    Dont join this company call logistic company in east area near changi district area dealing with Pharm. Especially the faclity manager is indian indian. they are looking for someone in EHS/Facility roles.

    Base on the fact if you want to work, you have to understand the work area and job right. therefore you will ask open questions. and guess that he does not understand at all. he will not let you have the opportunity to speak and i don’t really trust him at all. seriously speaking.

    O T K Transport and Solution PTE LTD

    This is a transport solution company which does contracts for both DHL pte ltd and FedeX. This company is owned by a fella name ALEX ONG TING KIAT. Beware of this cunning fella. He is in love with the money he gets. Even his wife left him for loving money then her.He literally couldnt get enough of it. And he ‘earns’ the money by implementing stupid policy. Tell me who in the world deducts 50 dollars just because you are 45 mins late?? He is rather irresponsible and loves to twist his employees words and use against them. He always delays their pay and at times wouldn’t even pay the correct amount. Employees have to literally threathen and go missing for a day or soo before he pays the remaining salary. He alo controls a loyal dog (his supervisor) who would blindy say things on behalf of employer. GOt to pity
