Finished a job because this outfit promised continued work that only lasted two weeks covering another driver on hols with the company? Even then it was a full two weeks expected to wait for a call run and jump at 4am
Getting a proper job afterwards
Lies lies and more lies
Ancora Recruitment Ltd is a fair employment agency, that specialises in driving jobs, as well as warehouse and removals. Whilst working with them, I was able to work across all job roles. The pay is good, paid weekly, and the amount you earn depends on the contract.
The pay avg , you are payed on time correct through 3rd party PAYE . In works new pention AUTO ENROLL pain YOU have opt out . JUST avg agentcy Some times you get less 12 hours notice off job offered will try push you in to unsuitable assighntments . Some times ur sent to compaines get worse runs no one else wants stupid route planning not enough time to get drops done . The companys who perm advertising for drivers cant get them use perm AGY drivers reason poor working conditions mostly poor pay own staff payed lot less agy staff . most benefit is you get choice the days times companys you wish work for ur in control ur life flexible . Although work may not be available on the days u wish to work .
Work was great with them did all I could for them as a family run business they were fantastic but they got in help and it went down hill after all I did for them there so called help got rid of me because I fell out with one of there customers who was rude to me well I can’t say that’s a good agency in stead of offering another placement but it’s there loss?
Biggest mistake. They offer you full weeks work but struggle to find you 2-3/wk and you will be asked to travel 20mls to get to customer. But the biggest con was when they struggled to find me something i was asked to be on a stanby and to pick my phone at 3-5am and take the job offered.Stayed days on stby only to find out its not paid.its only for their convenience not having to call every driver they have signed with them in the night when there's urgent need for a driver.Told em I even refused work from someone else so was told i could take work elswhere if offered. So asked why arrange a stby in the first place. Answer - "because we know to call you beacause we arranged stby". Well, if driver takes offers elsewhere he wouldn't be waiting there for your call so what is even mentioning of that standby for? Make it clear with them at the start if you ever tempted
Hard to find
biggest mistake of my life wasted my time again and again people in the office were rude and arrogant let me down time and time again sometimes i would drive 20 miles for a job only to get there and find they had been told i was no longer needed that night
Total waste of time this company is. Made my way from Bridgend (Wales) to Bristol to sign up with them for a job start near me this week and by the time I got there within the hour they had told me they filled the position and had nothing else for me not even a apology..absolute joke. Been told by others they wasted their time aswel. Do not use.
