Darcy Associates is one of the best recruiters I have ever bin with! Always good rate of pay, paid on time ! They have never let me down! Always lending a helping hand and very understanding. I would recommend Darcy Associates to Any one willing the construction work!

Ignore you when you have a problem dont pay you on time seriously worse agency I have worked for staff is rude and so un professional dont work with them stay well clear from this shambles of a agency!!!!
Everything about them
Great company to work for, backed me 100% from labourer to foreman given the training to help with this. As a site manager for a company to send consultants to cover for labour that doesnt show is a quality not found in others, I shall be using this company in the future and hope to work with them again in the near future.Keep up the great work guys

Worked for a short time for them gave me an hourly rate when i got paid my hourly rate had dropped . When i phoned was told it was going to get sorted 3 weeks i kept asking . Next thing lad from darcys had fall with contractor about money . Everyone that worked for darcy were let go .

After being offered employment by this company and sending all details of my previous employment etc, I was offered a start date and then not contacted again with any job details or work address. The only response I had was that they was in a meeting. I have been treated unfairly by this company and would advise everyone to stay away as they are an untrustworthy company.
They do not pay on time and blame it on "natural events"!!!Every week there's extra problem with payments.Never paid correctly.Never again!I don't understand that anyone could rate this agency five stars.

Hi,This is not our standard procedure and I would be keen to investigate the reason for the payment problems. It is essential that we always pay everyone who follows our procedures on-time and commit to providing a always-paid service where possible.Could you please give us a email to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your issues so we can investigate and provide a compensation for any problems that you may have encountered?Darcy Associates Limited
I can work at a variety of different companies from driving cars and vans through an auction to 7.5 tonne driving, I also have driven counterbalance forklift trucks for various production, warehouse and merchant companies. The work is fun and varied and I have gained much experience, my co-workers have been friendly and helpful so I have enjoyed getting up and going to work, the only hard part I can think of is trying to find vehicles that have not been located properly ( which is rare ). Best agency i have ever worked for.
terrible company. got zero respect for their workers. never paid correctly. shocked that anyone could rate this company five stars. by far the worst recruitment agency I have ever worked for.
Too many to list.

I'm a labourer working in Dorchester, been with Darcy agency a year, had no problems with work and pay. Very approachable and a great agency to have looking out for you. Can not fault them and are always readily available to sort out any problems that may occur in the work place.
As a qualified carpenter and joiner I have worked for darcy associates on and off mainly on for around 2 years,nothing short of one of the best agencies I have been involved with,never had a problem with wages always payed on time,very helpful and all ways trying there best to keep myself in continuous work,would advise anyone who is looking to work threw an agency to contact darcy associates
Genuinely a good agency. Flexible on umbrella companies and the office guys seem to just say it as it is regarding durations and scope of work. Every agency has their ups and downs and sometimes the guys can be hard to get hold of but the projects they get are genuinely good and they all seem a nice bunch.
Good hours, no payment problems
