Never received all my holiday pay.

I worked as a warehouse operative for a client of Berry recruitment for 8 months full time 45hrs a week and only received 10 days holiday pay, doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that I’ve been bumped by this dodgy agency, they even said that I should get half a day a week. they said that they would launch a investigation to see where all my holidays have gone but 3 months later I haven’t heard anything….On top of all that they left me without a job, it was only because of the company I worked for gave me the opportunity to change agencies so I could carry working there.

Pros

None.

Cons

Not professional at all, missing holiday pay ect.

Avoid a zero hour contract

I worked at Berry Recruitment for 4 months in 2017. The pay was weak, even though I was living outside of London.They made me work 4 hours in Stafford Monday to friday, but never gave me any decent work in Birmingham or West Midland. It costs £11 a return ticket between Birmingham and Stafford.Managment wanted me to work at an Indian wedding all day on Saturday and expect me to be selling brews at Aston Villa.

Cons

Weak hours

Not great

Don't pay you on time , don't even pay you the correct wage on time, terrible place to work for. Very minimal contact with the higher staff, just take advantage of you. I'd rather smoke a chip butty than work here

Pros

Flexible

Cons

Everything else

Terrible

I was promised to be paid 1 week after working. I didn’t get paid until 3 weeks later. I was then underpaid! And now I’ve been chasing them up for 4 months and still haven’t paid me! DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY

Horrible people

This is the worst company ever, disgusting customer service, rude employees, uneducated manager and a horrible work ethic in employees. Don’t even waste your time with these people!!

Workplace culture

It is an alright company to be honest even though the management can be a bit hmmm. And you get shifts via text, the pay is good, only issue is that the payment company takes a commission out of your pay.

Review

Get to choose hours but the majority of staff are pushy If you say you can’t do a shift you are asked why and pestered to do another one. Not enough hours to live off if you wanted a full time job Staff are all paid different rates (regardless of age) which I have discovered after talking to all agency staff in my area.

Fun workplace

Working on the production line making COVID19 test kits. The management was very friendly. Pretty easy workplace. You get 2 breaks, one 15 minute break and one 45min break.

The best recruitment agency I've ever worked for...

This company are excellent to work for as a zero hour contract worker. Their booking agents and office staff are helpful, supportive and very efficient. As a zero hour contract worker there is plenty of work in very good placements. The pay is good, never any payroll mistakes and they don't franchise out payroll so there's no fees or costs to payroll for the worker. Holiday pay and sick pay are organised and sorted out very quickly. This is the way every recruitment agency should be and every other recruitment agency should study this company as an aspirational model.

Pros

Plenty of work, well paid work and helpful supportive staff.

Cons

None. Actually no problems at all with this company.

It's okay if you need to pay your bills

- Send you times and places where your services are needed (I was a cleaner) in your area. You have a choice on what you can do but if you're not quick when replying it will get taken. - If I was unable to make it to a job there's little flexibility on resolving it. - You're not always at the same place cleaning all the time so your working with different people sometimes which was okay but annoying at the end of the week not knowing if you are needed there the next week.

Pros

- Choice of hours and what you can do

Cons

- When choosing hours and where you have to reply quickly so you don't miss opportunities.
