Recruitment Agencies in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... CV, * been bullied by the team leader of the employer * been told not to talk to other co-workers by the employer This didn't happen to me, it happened to my partner who is from an EU country who speaks fluent English with a decent CV and solid employment history before coming to live in the UK! I have 8 years multilingual recruitment experience outside the UK and I am disgusted and ashamed of the treatment so many have to endure whilst trying to find permanent employment in the UK. FYI - I do not work in recruitment in the UK (tried it but I care too much about helping people find a job!) I now work in Customer Service and get to help ... more

I was consistently lied to from the word go about salary, holidays, location of work (which was a 4 hour train ride from where I was told!) etc etc. The staff were inconsiderate and at time just downright rude.

Not something one expects at 25 years old. I found all the staff I dealt with, to name a few, Maxine, Laura and Margaret (the Manager!!!), rude, obnoxious, holier than thou, stuck up, liars, bullies and unhelpful in any way.

I don't hold recruitment agencies in high regard but the initial conversation I had with a salesman at Technical Resources (Weybridge) has to go down as the lowest point in my relationship with recruitment agencies. Conversation: TR: HELLO! (That was it! How professional. If I answered a phone like that in my sphere of work I would get a verbal warning) Me: I'm just returning a voice mail that was left for me. (these cowboys initially called me) TR: WHO WAS IT! Me: Not entirely sure as the VM was scrambled due to a bad line. TR: WHAT SKILLS DO YOU HAVE?! Me: (Outlined my skill set) TR: I know the position you're talking ... Read the complete review

They are very unprofessional, yet they make out that they are above the rest.I have registered with many other agencies in central London, and Burton Bolton and Rose are appalling in comparison.Their telephone manners are sloppy, the receptionist was very poorly dressed, and the agent you meet doesn't make you feel like they are looking out for you, but rather just haling you round their office for the registration like cattle.
