Recruitment Agencies in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... one occasion, having told them I no longer wanted to stay on my temporary assignment due to the lies I had been fed about it, I had 3 different members of staff on the telephone within half an hour telling me off! 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. To receive this treatment from a manger alongside other staff demonstrated to me that the problems with this company lie in the very foundations and that like any good builder will tell you, it should be knock... 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. On one occasion, having told them I no longer wanted to stay on my temporary assignment due to the lies I had been fed about it, I had 3 different members of staff on the telephone within half an hour telling me off!

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.

They are only contractually obliged to find three months of work for each temp, each year, and most of the time, they don't even find that. Even if you respond to an advertisement on their website or window and call them, they tell you they will contact you when something comes in, and you get nothing. These things are par for the course for Employment Agencies. However, recently, I had an ongoing contract, via Tate, with a very good company. Initially, I worked four days a week, and the company were so happy with my work, that they increased my hours to full time, and shortly ... Read the complete review
