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.
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
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.
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.
Great company to work for as they offer training throughout your time with them. I worked in a branch where the staff were not trained properly, they didn't know how to recruit and the managers took a liking to certain staff that if that wasn't you, you were in the firing line for everything and having a white board pen thrown at you for opening your mouth is not acceptable.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
typical agency will call you all hours. you wont get paid if the job is cancelled last min. once you are assigned to a company they wont try and find you work else where if there is none at your normal contract
can be flexible
can go for weeks withoout work
I started working at Encore Personnel a few months ago and have immediately bought into the company culture. There's a true 'work hard, play hard' mentality where you can see, if you put in the effort, you'll climb the ladder and develop in your career. There's a fast-paced environment across the company but if you're up for the challenge Encore will be your kind of workplace.
Fun and exciting place to work and true career progression opportunities
Fast-paced and demanding may not suit some
Since registering with Encore, the team has been nothing but professional and attentive. Finding me work at the last minute and being honest about the job I am going in for. Rarely does the work turn out different to their explanations and they are always on the end of the phone happy to help with all queries. The contracts they have are secure and work doesn't get cancelled often, if it does they always have back up work to keep me occupied. The pay rates are the best around and I would honestly say their the best agency i have been with.
*Really friendly, open, supportive environment *Practices what it preaches, focused on employee's health & wellbeing with various wellness initiatives available *A true work/life balance with flexible work hours and ability to work from home *Plenty of growth opportunities throughout the business
I want to say thank you very much for the opportunities for professional and personal development that you have provided me during the past few months. I have enjoyed working for the agency and appreciate the support provided me during my time with the company
not the worst agency to work with,but certainlly not the best. could be better when giving you notice over starting a new job (with one job i told them numerous times i needed to be told by 3:30pm so i could get their on time,but always they ending up phoning me up 4pm - 4:30pm) when you finally get up & running on the job,the other workers are decent but job security is rubbish,as you can be told theirs 2-3 weeks worth of work but get told your not needed after a week. Most jobs they offer are minium wage,with little extra benefits,but the job/life balance is normally Okay with the hours they offer
Okay Job/life balence
too little notice
Horrible litle agency run by a horrible rude litle man. Was asked to come in to re-sighn up with agency, given a contract for work. Then told the day of starting that they didn't check there paperwork correctly and then accused me of loosing them a contract with was complete rubbish as the company asked for us back on days.... dont waste your time and energy.
Shocking work ethic
