As Catapult is a job app it really depends on the employer but I had very good experiences with all of the jobs I did. I accepted some jobs that were far from my house, but yet it was my decision. I had or have good experience working for Catapult.
The experience was very beneficial, it allowed me to work and learn at the same time. It was fun interacting with new faces and helping out customers with there questions. Managers were understanding, professional and helpful to everyone and made me feel like a valued worker. I didn't see any task as difficult because there was a lot of patience whilst carefully teaching me what to do and how to do it. I learned the importance of the customer and teamwork in the workplace is key to have good communication.

Catapult was absolutely great in my time with them. There were always job offers on the platform, and you could definitely make some pocket money in your spare time. The brands that they place you with usually treat employees with respect, so the whole experience is quite good.
I have been working with Catapult for almost two years and I can say it is by far the best App agency to work for in terms of accessibility and convenience, the App is very easy to use and any problems you can easily contact a member of staff for guidance. The job roles are decent and you can be recommended to many places if you do a good job, allowing you to possibly get more work. The hardest part can definitely be finding work at quiet times, as you can go weeks without any job offers and randomly coming across one job, there is a slight chance it can get canceled if the venue is overbooked, which can be frustrating. The pay is just above average, but there definitely roles which offer higher pay. The most enjoyable part of the job is trying different jobs and meeting lots of people.
Various Job roles
Very difficult to find work during quiet periods.
Catapult is a brilliant idea, especially for students like myself. However I feel its all very informal. The meeting I had before my account was verified seemed very unorganised, which didn't fill me with confidence. I worked for Clarks on a number of occasions, which was great pay and more than I would get if I was an employee, however because you're not trained and not taught things by management because you're only there for a handful of hours you can feel like a bit of a spare part. Timings for shifts don't coincide with studies and the timings cannot be altered so shifts go unworked.
Awkward shift timings, Informal, Lack of shifts after xmas period
I've worked loads of shifts with Catapult all over London in both hospitality and retail. Most of their shifts pay well above £9 per hour which is better than most other apps. Every time I contact the support team they are always really helpful and seems like they care. Can only recommend it!
High pay and loads of different shifts
You don't always get all the shifts you apply for
minutes ago I worked 20+ shifts with catapult, turned up to work on time evrey single time did my job correctly and still was treated so badly, the agency only care about the employer and forget that it is the STAFF that make the business work. DO NOT USE THIS AGENCY. - USE SYFT Catapult is the worst agency I have ever worked for, they treat staff horrendously. They do not care about staff who work for them- the only thing they care about is money. I have had nothing but issues with working with them, I’d strongly suggest working with Syft or Adia
Poor treatment of staff, staff opinion not valued
A typical day is having a good team, good communication during service and flexibility amongst each other. I learnt that with a good team one is able to work effectively and will be able to bring out most their skills to the table. Management is very good respectable and very good on the social media to questions amongst staff members. The workplace culture is respect one another and respect to each other with a lot of fun and most keep to the good standard of the uniform ettics. The hardest part of the job is the long hours but most times very encouraging depending on the type of event.
Free lunches and breakfast, cab available for early shifts.
Long hours and sometimes shifts cancellations.
