Nice place to work. Salary aren’t so high but good enough. Very good and fast training. Work is not so easy but very interesting if you like fast paced environment.

Great agency to work with.

All OK except some problems with payments, but everything was sorted as it was not only agency's fault but also the other company's. Apart that - no issues.

Encore Personnel

Worked thru Encore at Hermes (rugby hub) as class 1 driver. Easy work for anyone looking for some experience, mainly two collections per shift. 10-12 hour shifts, more if you want, fuel on site. Wash on site, VMU on site for any bulb, VOR etc. Good place to work and shifts are any over the week, 2,3,4,5,days your choice plus weekends if you want. Daf, Merc, Iveco, Man trucks available for drivers. DSV (IVECO) for London routes with side cameras. Encore always had work for me all year round, could do 52 weeks if wanted at Hermes. Wages always paid weekly and never a discrepancy. Never had a issue with Encore staff, always friendly and helpful to me. Only left Hermes because got a permanent job in home town, with similar wages and less travel and a bit less hours.

Pros

Work all year round. Wages paid weekly.

Cons

Sometimes long shifts, Thu and Fri.

Not as busy as I would like

You have to keep yourself busy even when it is very quiet.. some people are quite nasty and I personally couldn’t work in that environment.. I always felt I was being watched by supposedly team members

Pros

Some people were lovely

Cons

Some people weren’t

Caring and Passionate!

Great team at the office! They managed to find me work quickly and were on the phone with my holidays and shift changes if I needed them. I recommend them to my friends and family!

Great agency to work with, very helpful and their services are profound.

Encore is an agency that offers excellent service at a professional level. Good communication skills. I will recommend them to friends. They are caringand kind. They provide a pleasant work environment, always answered questions readily with no delays or being made to feel the questions were not warranted.

Wouldn't bother

Had a job for a few months. The place I worked had an outbreak of covid (very high rate) government had to get involved. I then had to go into isolation and the last day of isolation before returning to work I get a text message at 5.30 when they leave the office to say they no longer had work for me after promising a full time contract. Very poor management and won't even pay ssp for self isolating. Absolute joke of a company

Stressful and undermined constantly

Would never work for this company again. I was praised by my branch manager and put forward for promotions and shut down and undermined constantly by the area manager because of the way i looked and my hobbies outside of my working day.

Bait & Switch Tactics

Advertising driving jobs with a headline rate to attract applicants which soon diminishes. Bait & switch tactics only work on idiots & if you only want idiots working for you then you are welcome to them.

There's worse

They kept me working and still text me occasionally to determine my availability,there's a lot worse I'm sure, let them know your needs and expectations and they'll work toward it as no-one wins of your not happy

Stressful, fast paced

Very stressful, especially during peak. Very fast paced, with very little work life balance. Would not recommend for people with children. However, good career prospects

By far the best agency there is.

I had dealt with other agencies before using encore. Which had not gone well. I contacted them and signed to there agency. From the very beginning I found them helpful, easy to talk to. They found me work which suited me. I was in work in less than a week. I have now been set on permanent. I cannot fault them in anyway. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you encore.
