Having just completed a pretrade course and unable to find work in my chosen field directly i utilized the services of tradestaff and found the consultants to be very friendly and very quick to offer work however as this is a temping agency you have to remember the Client calls the shots. I was on a three day gig and at the end of my first day i was told by the client that i had done a great job but as soon as i got home i received a text from their after hours branch and told that i was "no longer required" and from their own i was only getting scut work such as lifting GIB which is unsuitable for somebody my age. Lucky for myself no i managed to secure full time permanent employment (via my own means) in a different industry where you are valued and not treated as "surplus".

I loved the Tradestaff West branch, mainly the Branch Manager who gave a lot of effort to get a new assignment for me, that's awesome.
After resigning, they provided my holiday pay and Govt holiday pay straightway in the next pay circle

The guys in the office in Queenstown, New Zealand are lovely and very helpful.
If you go and do your very best on jobs, be on time, don’t be a hassle, work hard, always say yes to jobs from them. These guys will then sort you out with better jobs you want to do

They are a hiring firm that mostly fill positions for larger companies such as Fulton Hogan. Your work experience will vary drastically based on the experience that you bring to the table.

Tradestaff is an on call place to work, you can find full time jobs through tradestaff yet its not a definite, also its unreliable in the fact that you may not get work everyday of the week, pay day will vary.

A good base to begin employment but perhaps not sustainable given the average wage for general labourers.
Although would recommend for skilled tradesmen

Trade Staff was the agent that placed me with the first company I worked for in Christchurch. Consultant was friendly and always helpful. Work culture was as would be expected of a recruiting agency. Good communication. The negative was that they only would find me placements for a more junior mechanic, I needed the work so I went with them.
Pros
Not applicable
Cons
Salary and job placements
