Terrible

Terrible place to work, unpleasant management, far from willing to help, only minding own business and ignoring phone calls from employees in need, zero help at the time of pandemic either.

Good place to work

I enjoyed working at Barker Ross since I have been working there for a long time. Everyone was very nice and they helped me to find hours that suited me and my children. I vividly recommend this job since you will be able to schedule it how you want to.

Support Staff Nottingham

The positive aspects of working for Barkerross is the staff are very approachable and professional and it offers flexible working hours. The staff at Barkerross have a greater understanding of the agency staff's needs and circumstances and they will accommodate accordingly. The staff engage positively with all of their staff from different nationalities and ethnic minorities. I have met some lovely, amazing staff at the agency, and I have worked at some amazing places. I have throughly enjoyed being a member of the agency and has been a worthwhile experience, and I enjoy my job and making a difference to clients lives. The manager is always available to listen to staff to highlight any concerns. I would highly recommend Barkerross as a recruitment agency to work for.

Pros

Flexible working hours.

Cons

I don't have any to report.

Poor company, does not treat others fairly

This company does not reply to emails,does not call, and treats people in an unfair manner. I do not have anything else to say other than, it is a company interested in making a pound or two.

Avoid at all cost.

The main issue was with the employment itself rather than Barker Ross. The manager is extremely unprofessional and the ring leader of bullying. Unwilling to train the staff and would rather gossip behind your back instead of help. Best decision made was leaving! Wouldn't work through agency again due to lack of communication once they was made aware of the situation.

Pros

Going home

Cons

Everything

We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with our client – we do take these complaints seriously. We would welcome the opportunity to speak with us direct on this matter.

Pretty basic warehouse work

Some warehouses better than others, difficulties with communication with agency workers, pretty good pay, not flexible hours, good for a short period of time
