Not bad

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Generally they treat you well but pay you very poorly in comparison to similar level roles at other companies. They could improve on their staff development programs too as they were also few and far between

A good place to start your career journey

It was great working with Adecco and I would recommend it to those would like to start their career journey as the roles provided by this agency are on a temporary basis (possibly extendable).

Less but not least

Working for Adecco is like working for noone. You work with yourself and by yourself.No tarinig, no management only numbers are in question. Payroll is pretty poor, mistakes are happening every week when employees needed payments and payslips.

Management get away with murder. Lot's of things go under the radar to protect their branch. Very competitive, unhealthy atmosphere to work in. Would avoid.

A looks orientated industry

If you wish to have your appearance scrutinized as though it were a KPI, then this is the sector for you. You will be pressured to follow diets, so you fit with the aesthetic. Not a good representation of the diverse labour market we are encouraged to recruit for


commission. (if you're granted it)


No work life balance, terrible anxiety and bi-polar management

Productive and fun work environment

I really enjoyed my time at Adecco however short it may have been. There was a lot of benefits that went with the job and also a lot of pros to the working day. The colleagues that I worked along side were extremely helpful as and when needed and also made it more of a relaxed and fun environment. if I ever had the opportunity to work for Adecco again I would take, and every other opportunity that they had to offer.


excellent work life balance and also amazing colleagues to work along side


some extremely difficult customers that had to be dealt with on a day to day basis

Job description

I have been a recruiter, on a daily basis, hiring people for warehouse operative job for the biggest online retail giant: Amazon. As I deal with such a wide variety of candidates from all over the world. My job involved English language testing and screening and photocopying different types of documentations such as: foreign passports and ID cards as well as proof of national insurance and proof of address. Every morning, myself and my team we followed a 6-stage registration process. Firstly, we take documents from the candidates and carry out language testing and present them with their application pack for them to fill in. We then carry out a power-point presentation about Amazon to the candidates and then proceed to interviewing the candidates one by one and then we put them forward for a drug and alcohol test. Lastly we check their application form, take a photograph of the candidates and offer and match them to an appropriate shift. In the afternoon, my role involves advertising the jobs through job boards, social media, etc. My target is to resource the candidates and book them in to then take them through this process.


Good pay-rate, Nice enviroment


Temporary contracts only

Hard work but fun

Had a great time working for them. It was fast paced but I really enjoyed that. Great people to work with in the office I was in. I could have been a little more organised but it was the first time with this particular client. So It was a learning curve for everyone.


Close to home


Ended too soon

Worked at Badenoch

Amazing time there. Was lucky enough to work within a fantastic team and for a fab manager. So supportive...I used to look forward to going in to work. We got out work done but had a laugh ALL the time! Great team nights out and can honestly say I've made friends for life here :) Work hard play hard ethic...but in a good way


Culture - team and management (not everyone was as lucky as me though)


The pay wasn't great

Really great company to work for

Unfortunately I have been placed at risk of redundancy due to a merger within the business. I really enjoy my job with Adecco, it is fast paced and challenging. I have a great manager who I get on really well with and am part of a great team.
