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,

    Take note of this company : Smart Idea Pte Ltd

    They have very unethical HR practices. They hire fast and fire fast. Every month sure got one staff get terminated. Not retrenched, but TERMINATED. For stupid reasons too, such as poor performance (but they have no performance review document to prove it) or maybe they will say “no upcoming projects” but next day u see new staff join!

    They can do this and remain out of MOM radar because they terminate 1 staff per month, so it dont look like retrenchment or doesnt look suspicious!

    • WH says:

      Who is the boss of Smart Idea Pte Ltd? I want to find out more about him/her.

    • CuriousGeorge says:

      Can I know what position that was terminated? Terminate means leave on he spot or asked to leave within a month?0

      • Gin says:

        Most of the times, it is on the spot. Or, the Finance Controller would tell the employee the last day of service would be on a certain date, as according to the employment agreement. But she would ask the employee to leave on the spot the next moment when she got everything handed over by him/her, with the latter caught off guard.

This guy is also a hyprocrite not to be trusted. He will act like yr best friend and stab you in the back while you bleed to death. He & vicious Malay lady called Aryanti are despicable.

    Beware of W3ISP Holdings Pte Ltd.

    Scam and scheming boss, made use of naive fresh graduates. No CPF for first 3 months of employment. Asks employees to pay for purchases of office supplies, without reimbursement. Owes employees salaries. Shameless!

  7. Anna says:

    De Lance Interior Design.

    The two bosses are gangster-like, unprofessional conmen. They made employees manage projects for free. It is commission-based, 50% of the profits go to the employee for that project. After the project is closed, all works done and handed over, the bosses refused to pay the employee the commission. Employees could not go to the MOM, as there were no employment contract signed in the first place.

    Beware!

  8. Sky says:

    Alpha Formation Pte. Ltd.

    The lady boss never gives chances. When she reckons that you’re “not up to their expectation”, you’re fired and asked to leave on the spot. She thinks her company is doing very well, when they only have Seoul Yummy to count on. Every Seoul Yummy outlet’s renovation works is done by them. So she thinks she’s very successful and capable. But she has no idea how big the world is. Pathetic frog in the well.

    Bizhub Asia Pte Ltd

    The director who is a wife of the boss treated many interns from polytechnic school. She insisted that the interns cannot use the toilet. She forced them to wash the toilet first if they need to use toilet urgently.

    The boss forced the interns to buy him cigarettes, but the interns are 17 years old! 17 years old cannot buy cigarettes.

    The boss and his wife said, “We should hire more interns, cheap labour! They’ll do whatever we ask them to do because their grades are at stake.”

    The boss took advantage of the interns to deliver his daughter’s homework all the way from Tai Seng to his daughter’s school.

    The boss and his wife wrote negative and inappropriate comments about interns if they do not obey the boss/wife instructions.

    Pls be beware of Bizhub Asia Pte Ltd

    Uber. I was approached to apply for a role; went for interviews and on my first day they changed my job description which I thought it was fine until my manager told me I was not meeting expectations into the third month. I passed probation period but a week later, she asked me to resign saying that their culture does not suit me. I was asked to resign on that day and leave on that day. Colleagues were shocked; i was shocked. The exit was not empathetic . Honestly it hurt my career and I had a huge tough time explaining myself at interviews on leaving.

    I had been working full-time

    There is a chance for foreigner to start their first job because they hired foreigners for less salary.

    Everything messed up, no working plans (at first there were list of to dos).
    Bess plans and always change existing pre-planed things. Boss have no basic computer knowledge and do not trust our help.

    Its a family company everyone is related but you dont know. Only discovered by yourself.
    The only non-related Colleague is very rude & unfriendly in teaching but later apologized and explained that boss wants them behave like that.
    Then they resigned leaving only you as non related.

    You come with No experience and colleagues taught you wrong things and left. Boss expect you to know everything but criticizes mostly.

    High employee resignation and heard that past salary huge differences even though same job scopes.
    Many past projects messed up- missing pages n stuff.

    Have projects that need to stay past midnight to do, boss allows to claim OT, accumulated ot time but boss too busy to see O.t timings so you never allowed to claim it.
    Sometimes boss says pay will be delayed for a mth.

    any time you need to clean the bins as there is water or food in it by the family.

    Most of the plans will not continue as planed.
    Boss have problem with perfection and check your work many times even simple letters to sent out must be done in an organised way or rule exactly the same.

    If you are late 15-30 mins , you have to take half day leave so your boss will smile or else the face will black.

    There is no team lunch, meeting or team gathering organised.
    If you leave company, no farewell.
    In my experience,no body leave happily (there were cases to settle in court and many leaves and salary disputes with boss). I have seen them leaving. last movement was same for all. its worst. Beware of Emod Pte Ltd

    NES GLOBAL TALENT is heavily biased for caucasians. They dont even want to look at your cv if you are not white. the md who is british-australian in australia and the regional director from uk who is based in singapore both are behind this preferred hiring. the company even got sent a warning letter from MOM because of their discrimination. for the same experience locals are paid $3500 to $5000 while the white expats get $5500 to $7000 plus housing allowance and annual flight home. their reason for hiring whites is because they are better than locals or asians. yet these expats dont do well and dont have great relationships with their clients who are locals.

    • Michael says:

      Hi Su,

      I am the Operations Manager for NES in Singapore. I was wondering if you could email me so we could discuss your comments. We have 80% Singaporeans in our business, everyone is paid equally and in some cases the Singaporeans earn more than the foreigners. Also our MD lives in Australia so I’m not sure why you are spreading such infactual information. NES is proud to support our Singaporean Core with jobs, a good wage and great career opportunities. You can ask any of our current staff. My email is Michael.court@nesgt.com please do send me and email in case there is anything in the past I can address as this is 100% not the business we are today.

      Best Regards, Michael

      Dear Su,

      You are right, there are many Headhunting Firms are here in Singapore, its a platform for them to Pull and Hire FT, myself with so much relevant experience I tried these Firms just response back that I am not suitable, sure as NES said they hire Singaporeans for their Firm of course they do if not how can the firm survive, but Michael misunderstood and diverted the attention to say that 80% of their STAFF arer Singaporean, of course! Michael dont distract the readers we are referring to your recruiting Singaporeans for positions your clients are looking for. Many of these Firms dont give a care into Singaporeans CV, Robert Half, Hays, Kerry, Michael Page, the list goes on…..how many % of Singaporeans are hire for your clients positions…Tell Us All prove to us ALL.

    At Acronis Asia Pte Ltd, EA, Ng Mei Loon, is a horrible person to work with. She is a control freak, when she is not a manager. She orders people around, as if she is the queen. She looks down on people such as the delivery men, and even the receptionist. She talks down to everyone, other than those seated in the rooms. She gossips and badmouths about everyone and anyone, even her own bosses. She complains about everyone and anyone to their superiors, as long as that person does not do as she says. She can always find something, mostly trivial issues, to file a complaint. And when complaints of a certain employee accumulates, he/she is asked to leave. 2 receptionists has left because of her nastiness. Because the immediate superior, which is the HR manager, does nothing about this mean character, as this HR manager is afraid of this EA, who serves so many high-level bosses. A Marketing colleague left after a couple of months here, because he found those women (the EA, and her kaki, who is the Sales RM), too gossipy. He even commented how free they are to be going out of office every now and then, for smoking breaks, and even shopping trips.

  19. Pooh says:

    Exactly. EA Ng Mei Loon plays office politics and makes life miserable for people she dislikes. She acts as if she’s the office manager. Sarcasm and criticism is her forte. She’s the nastiest person in the company. She makes use of others and claims others’ credits. The HR team isn’t of any help in solving employees’ grievances. They’re not around a lot of times. Many gossipers in the company. Very horrible work environment.
