Work as an onsite consultant. Work is fast paced and communication with the client is often poor. They are very demanding but don't give you any time or notice when they want something. Overall Berry recruitment are great. Everyone i've spoken to in different departments has been very helpful.They've been very supportive during the Covid outbreak really care about the well being of their staff.

Meeting different people and working as a team is one thing I love to do. The agency gives listening ears to anything you want to ask or tell them and they explain to touch what to do.
Pros
No lunch
Cons
Short hours

advertising pay rates that arent true, my first showed that I was on £1 less than the job advertised. At times you have to persistently call, text or email the office contacts in order to get the help you need.On the other hand pay was always on time, except for one mishap that got rectified the following week.

Absolutely shocking level of service verbally from manager in Warrington. Although work was offered, in writing/email perfectly respectful. Verbally, quite the opposite. Extremely rude & disrespectful. Words cannot explain so let me just say .... go to another more friendly company who give you the respect you deserve.
Pros
None
Cons
Awfully disrespectful in every manner.

You’ll be lured into the job with high pay rates but on pay day you’ll see that they deduct a huge amount of money classed as ‘profit margins’ so basically this company makes a profit from your hard work. They’ll tell you that they only deduct tax - which is normal - but they wont tell you they also deduct profit margins.Long hoursStaff is so impolite. If i could put a screenshot here to show the way they talk to me over text, you’d hate to work with such people. All they need is for you to join- you wont get paid for all your hours. I have left the second week i worked for them and it is horrible. They arent even sorry about it.
Pros
I’d be surprised if they have any
Cons
Everything you could or could not imagine

If you are enrolled with Berry you are literally just a number. They could not care less or be less bothered about their workers welfare. They treat people with total disrespect. During my dismal tenure with them I witnessed a bullying culture on many occasions.There are better companies out there so my advice to anyone who is considering enrolling with them is DON'T!
Pros
None
Cons
You get treated like dirt.

Unpaid inductionGet couple of days training & then get told to pick up work pace.Basically pack mules so full time staff don't have to do any loading. Hitler cultureBerry recruitment basically feed you a pack of lies, to get you to take the job. Usually get sent home early, even though they give you a rota.. Pointless.
Pros
Free beverages
Cons
The job

I currently work for Berry and this is my first agency I have worked for,I have been very happy with how this company has treated me,in particular my Manager Mo,who has helped me a lot.I have no hesitation in recommending this company,its just a shame the contract is only temporary,if I ever have to work for them again I will do so with confidence,my only gripe is the pay could be better but im happy overall.
Pros
Paid on time, good manager, good company.
Cons
pay could be better.

After starting I was toldtI had to phone up the depo, every morning to find out if there is work.. to which no one ever answers the phone. Speaking to Berry they said we told you this would be the case... erhh no you didn't and read your job advertisement again. Further more I have not worked for 2 weeks and not had a single phone call.. I am at a total loss with this company. Unprofessional and unreliable, wasted 7 weeks of my life and the sad part is the the attitude on Collette is rampant and needs to be checked. Spoke to my like a child 9n the phone so I resorted to using emails as much as possible,.
Pros
None.
Cons
All of thee above.

Fake job vacancies
