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

President

    Hydrogen Group. (Recruitment agency)

    I saw they fired a staff after 2 weeks. They hired this guy from a completely different industry BUT, he already sent out candidates for interviews by the 3rd day AND brought in new client worth over USD 50k by the second week. That’s when he got fired. Be careful of the politics there.

    I work for a Singapore local university, in one of their research centres. I was shocked to see on my first day that 80-90% of the staff were foreigners (Indians)! All living on Singapore taxpayer’s money!!! Also I later found out that many of them are really not qualified and have no technical skills or are really unprofessional and stupid. Damn disgusting!!!

      The best thing about Singapore’s Foreign Talent Scheme is that Singaporeans who SUCCEED in say, getting a place in the local universities can always feel MUCH MORE SUPERIOR to their compatriots who DO NOT, even if they qualify.

      Being in a Singaporean university is sufficient to put anybody, no matter what their nationality or GENDER, on a pedestal.

    Small design agency called +angoshark. Boss is basically a tyrant and cannot tolerate his ego being bruised. Constantly hurled sexual comments about staff’s dressing; dress too short, blouse’s designs etc. Have constant mood swings, one moment he’s fine, the next moment banging the table and shouting vulgarities. Very rude and sarcastic to staff, especially to those he doesnt like or those who are giving notice.

    Avoid of this place at all costs!

    A chair manufacturing company called Benel. Totally non-compliance with MOM Employment Act (Cap.91) S38(1)(b).

    Workers are working from 8.45 to 6.30 everyday with 45 minutes lunch break. That is equal to 9 hours work everyday (EA states 8 hours per day) or 45 hours work every week (EA states 44 hours per week). To get around this, the company declares a 15 minutes tea break which does not exist but rather, time for the staff to go toilet.

    Does not pay OT for anything despite being stated in EA S38(4). Company around 80% malaysian, china chinese or malaysian turn PRs (to get around the dependency ceiling) with only a handful of Singaporean.

    Britol College

    Scam school
    Students from India come to work with full knowledge of the principal.

    Failure to pay salary.

    Did not come for MOM labour court.

    Still not getting salary after labour court judgement

    Lotsa shady deals.

    Kits4Kids

    It is a special needs school who hired almost all foreigners as teachers and therapists. Parents paid more than 1k of school fee monthly, and most teachers are just qualified with in-house certifications.

    In the employment letter, the employee is supposed to ensure herself having the required qualification to conduct the job duties efficiently. (Isn’t it the company’s responsibility?!) And new staff are bonded for 1 year without any incentive nor the probation period.

    I can’t imagine how the children learn language when most of the teachers are foreigners with strong accent of their own countries, including the speech therapist.

    Panelplace is one,you can see their website at panelplace.com,

    they ask intern to work for $600 a month,when work is not done they ask them to work for over time.

    They are remaining days when they ask people to stay back extra days and not pay them the salary.

    NTU Computer Centre is totally populated with Indians except their boss. They make the toilets so dirty and smelly! Does NTU have so little confidence in its local graduates that instead of hiring them they have to hire graduates from Indian universities???

      Time to petition the Prime Minister Office …
      Reduce the in flow of the Indian, Filipino and the Myanmar community… Singaporean are disadvantaged and marginalised by their presence in the country.

      • Dico says:

        Petition the Prime Minister Office???

        This is the arsehole who had created all this mess and he will never listen until he is ousted!

        This is the same arsehole who signed the traitorous CECA free trade agreement with India that allow free access of Indians to Singapore’s job market!

        So who benefitted from the CECA in Singapore’s side? The cronies of PAP! They get access to the lucrative banking and telecommunications sectors, the ports managements and other businesses that give benefits to the GLCs which feeds their Elite Chauvinistic Pigs scholars big fat salaries! UOB and OCBC also benefited from the CECA. Why? because UOB is one of the major customer of Lee & Lee Law firm!

      So what?

      I noticed the best thing about Singapore’s Foreign Talent Scheme is that Singaporeans who SUCCEED in say, getting a place in the local universities can always feel MUCH MORE SUPERIOR to their compatriots who DO NOT, even if they qualify.

      Being in a Singaporean university is sufficient to put anybody, no matter what their nationality or GENDER, on a pedestal.
