I’ve never used a service like this before as I generally get promoted within the organisation of which I work, or I... apply for roles similar to what I had been doing in the past, so this was a huge step in asking someone to me build the perfect resume, and I can safely say, I was not disappointed. Malcolm was an absolute pleasure to deal with, very responsive and kept me up to date with the progress of my resume. His questioning technique is unbelievable as he makes you think about your previous roles and how you are able to transfer those skills in to the role in which you are applying. I will most certainly be using Malcolm again in the future, thank you again for your expertise and help in building my resume.read more

I went through Republic Resumes when I was looking for work in 2019, after completing a Masters Degree. Malcolm... responded very quickly to my initial enquiry, and was very friendly and easy to work with. Malcolm helped me re-write my resume, kept in good contact with me, and I was very happy with the final product. I was able to obtain excellent employment not long after I completed my revised resume, and have been working ever since. I would highly recommend Malcolm's services.read more

I highly highly recommend Malcolm and Republic Resumes. After having time away from the workforce to raise a family, my... old resume was lacking in depth and job hunting felt to be an insurmountable task. However, Malcolm was professionally encouraging, highly responsive and his skilful approach to writing my new resume was the springboard I needed to get my current position as well as other job offers from Commonwealth departments. I am extremely grateful.read more

After years of trying to break into the Human Resources field I was recommended Republic Resumes. Malcolm was friendly,... professional, quick to respond to any queries that I had and kept in communication. His industry knowledge was valuable and he collaborated well with me to develop my cover letter and resume. Malcolm was able to extract the necessary information he needed and beautifully captured my transferable skills. He was adept at using HR jargon and created a well articulated and professional tailored cover letter and resume under 1 week, which landed me 3 interviews. I am now working in my dream job and workplace as a Human Resources Coordinator!read more

I was recommended republic resumes after I was looking to improve my resume to start looking for a career. I mainly... struggled with the right words to use and a good structure to showcase the right skills to employers. Even over the holiday season the responses were consistently speedy and all my resume and cover letter drafts were finalised in just three days. My resume and cover letter look fantastic and I look forward to using these to apply for work. The value for the price is fantastic. While looking online for other resume writers, the average price was between $400-$600 for all resumes while I was charged just $200 for an entry level resume and cover letter. Overall I’m incredibly happy with the work I received and I would definitely recommend this business to others!read more

I had been employed by the same company for 18 years and in that time had made good progression however with no formal... qualifications. When I decided it was time to make a career change, I needed to show my potential employees that my past on the job experiences could be an asset to their company. I found Malcolm through google search and reading reviews, I reached out and was happy when he squeezed me in to his already full schedule. Both being super busy at the time, Malcolm made the process easy asking the right questions via email generally completing each step quicker than he would initially advise. The new resume and cover letter were exactly what I needed and helped me gain a new position in the industry that I had set my sights on. Thanks again Malcom.read more

Amazing professional and expert in his field . As a TAFE graduate and career changer I looked for professional resume... writers , after the search , some asking skyrocketing prices and others having no reviews on their services I found Republic Resume , thanks to the good reviews. Malcolm replied in 15 minutes after my first request , very prompt , professional and helpful , the instructions easy to follow and price was extremely good and 100% worth it . For the next 3 days we had multiple communication going on with Malcolm redrafting my resume again and again until it looked perfect . During all the process I felt extremely valued and Malcolm was very helpful and eager to do his best to help me in the best possible way . I was surprised when he picked up such small details from my studies and previous work experience that I could not even think about and it is amazing how such a small things make such a huge difference in the end .Cannot thank you even more ,Malcolm ,for such a great job . Will definitely be recommending you to everyone who is looking for a job ,planning a career change or simply upgrading the resume . Many thanks . Best wishes Olena .read more

Malcolm was incredibly helpful. Having trawled the internet in search of an Adelaide based professional resume writer,... I came across his reviews and immediately sent through an email with my resume and cover letter. I emailed him late at night and had received a response by the time I woke up. Not only did I have a response, but he was kind enough to edit what I had provided and make further suggestions to suit the role I was looking at moving into. Not an easy task when you're looking at an unrelated traineeship following the completion of a trade qualification. Can't recommend him enough. Thank you, Malcolm.read more

Malcolm was professional, fast and detailed.

Further, I gathered Malcolm is a hard worker who strives for customer satisfaction. Despite being busy he made the time to do this in concise fashion without delay.

OTR class action for alleged wage theft in Adelaide

SA is one of the worst states for wage theft, although rarely reported by the media. OTR has form. The Liberal state government has done nothing to stop it. Know your employment rights. This edited story is from the ABC. 

South Australia’s largest private employer, convenience store chain OTR, is accused of wage theft that could amount to $70 million in underpayments to thousands of employees.

A class action on behalf of 1,050 workers against Shahin Enterprises, owner of the chain also known as On The Run, was lodged with the Federal Court on Wednesday (13 May 2020).

Adero Law, representing the workers, accuses the company of failing to pay overtime, underpaying staff and misusing its traineeship program as a method to reduce workers’ pay. Adero Law claims at least 6,000 OTR workers across South Australia were put on similar programs by the company, and allegedly received $3 an hour less than they were entitled to.

It estimates more than 8,000 current or former employees of the chain are eligible to join the class action and claims Shahin Enterprises could be liable to pay back between $50 million and $70 million in unpaid wages and entitlements.

The allegations, which date back to 2014 and span across all 145 OTR stores in South Australia, involve eight different wage minimisation tactics that allegedly enabled Shahin Enterprises to underpay its staff.

In a statement to the ABC, a spokesperson for OTR said while the company would correct payment errors “brought to its attention”, it had “no choice but to defend the case”.

One of the lead claimants is Paul Young, who worked at an OTR service station at Parafield, north of Adelaide, between 2013 and 2019. Mr Young started out on a traineeship program, and would remain under that pay bracket until 2015.

Paul Young says he was classed as a trainee employee between 2013 and 2015. Mr Young said OTR was initially a good company and provided shifts that suited his needs as a single father of two children with disabilities. But, by the end of 2018, things had changed.

“It got harder and harder,” he said. “More expected, more work placed onto me and nothing for it. Barely even a thank you.”

Mr Young alleges he was required to work overtime before and after his shifts, and couldn’t take allocated meal breaks. Like other applicants, Mr Young also alleges pay was deducted from his salary to cover uniform costs and police checks, despite OTR’s policy of reimbursing workers for these costs upon termination of their employment.

‘Voluntary overtime’ a routine tactic

Lawyer said workers were instructed by OTR to sign a “voluntary overtime” form on the commencement of their employment, which stated any overtime they worked was voluntary and as such paid at their respective ordinary rates of pay. But it is alleged the company would then require employees to work overtime in line with its own staffing requirements, which included shifts on public holidays.

In 2015, the ABC’s 7.30 program revealed former employees’ allegations that OTR was running a sham training program, designed to keep wages low. The report drew the attention of the State Government and enquiries were made with the company.

In March, the Federal Court upheld a separate decision by South Australia’s Employment Tribunal to award $2,342 to an OTR employee who had been underpaid.

Adero Law previously began looking into possible wage theft through the company’s traineeship program, which it said highlighted a pattern of “serial offending”.

Lawyer Kellie Pledger, who spearheaded the investigation, said Peregrine Corporation, a parent company of OTR, has been involved in several claims at the tribunal.

“The exploitation of workers has become a business model,” she said. “The common feature among sophisticated businesses subject to recent wage scandals is that they have systemically underpaid employees.”

The law firm said it surveyed more than 1,000 workers from the OTR chain, all of whom allege they had not been paid their lawful entitlements.
