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
This is the biggest scam agency i ever worked for. Do yourself a favor and dont even apply. Wpuld be better off without a job. Dont pay you right they do not pay overtime pay rates in ypur normal working days so ypu have to work on a day off for the extra rates. Absolute scam
Dosent have any at all
Short breaks. Poor pay.
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.
Typical day consists of a daily catch up with my manager and my general duties. I have learned lot's and the training is excellent. The management is great and relaxed. Everybody in the office is highly productive and enthusiastic.
Friday drinks, Excellent training, End of year gala
They constantly ask you for overtime, even if you've explained the reason why you can't they'll still ask you 4 or 5 times. They constantly pay you wrong or not pay you at all then feed you the most absurd lies as to why they can't rectify their error. Their staff are incompetent and they constantly talk down to you and treat you as if you are stupid. Horrible company, one of the worst I've ever had to deal with. Would not recommend at all.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

The staff do not care about hard workers, bad mouthed me in a foreign language they didn't think I understood whilst I was in the office, unwilling to do their job when they made mistakes regarding pay, defensive, pretending to be attacked when stating facts regarding issues they created. Never once replied to my messages. Management likes to ignore phone calls of people they don't like or come up with excuses to not take their call (I saw this first hand multiple times in the office). They sit on Facebook talking bad of other workers for the agency to you behind their backs. These people do not see the agency workers as equals, they are arrogant and hypocritical.
Payment issues, hostile environment. Horrendous management.
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
Taking responsibility for own work/system recording etc. Working without close supervision. Really nice people and management. Me:Every day/night working faster and faster to beat my own record at picking/ratio just to have my name first at the top of the list... When i do so, the time goes really,really quick and it gets competitive and addictive after some time. Also there is always something to do at any time to keep me busy and interested all the time making the next day a happy day of going to that place.
The staff at Encore are an absolute joke not a clue how to treat staff. The staff at Prolog completely ignore you. Alot of the agency lads in phase 1 think there better than everyone else. There is far to many managers in one warehouse all they do is stand around doing nothing they also walk around warehouse drinking teas and coffees. If there's is no work in any of phases agency offer you work in phase 5 and if you refuse to go they put a mark against your name. ENCORE Absolute joke.Also you only get half an hour break shocking
Short breaks long hours
if you want to work in a regime for the Gestapo this is the place to be. Hierarchy at its finest truly unbelievable in this day and age some seriously bad senior management that the company don't want to deal with to make this place a good place to work which is a shame because the actual company is not all bad.
It was working in a food factory with encore personnel, it was first experience for me working in this environment where all the workers were friendly and cooperative management was brilliant atmosphere in packing area was more friendly. i learnt how fast i have to work opposite a machine and this was the hardest part of the job.
free fruits on the week end
I was working at this particular place, and at first it seemed great. But it soon changed unfortunately, i was buddied up with a particular man who was perfectly fine. But problems soon arose im quite small so i needed the work bench lowering and the team leader clearly couldn't be bothed to do it, which appeared very unprofessional and unhelpful, it eventually was done but however not by her by a fellow colleague. I also felt she was very patronising and very rude on a number of occasions and made personal opinions out loud, one i heard was "how dumb you can get" aimed towards a women i was working with which is very unprofessional. Also the majority of the time i was working on a pumped up dolly truck working out a box of parts for fitting tools together, an the the parts constantly got mixed up and i had nowhere to put anything in any useful order and i was working on top of boxes containing parts making it inpossible to have a stable surface to work on, which considerably effected the speed i could work and i also had very little space. I was then moved to packing which i did much better on. They told the agencey i was working well, then told them i weren't keeping up to speed which seemed hypocritical. I was also informed it can take up to two weeks to get up to speed which i wasn't given, plus my working conditions weren't suitable in my opinion and the other colleagues opinions, i worked alongside. Most people were nice but i think i was just unfortunate with who i had as a team leader, if i was put on another line im sure i would of been fine.
Clean working conditions and the canteen was more then adequate.
Rude management, low pay and poor work station provided.
Typical day at work started from finding the order that needs to be checked. The process of checking compiled from printing order description, checking labels, inspecting and measuring garments, writing report and sending it to appropriate people. At this job I have improved my accuracy, self-sufficiency and time management skills. A team consisted from 5 people that mainly worked on their own. Sometimes, when we had been receiving bigger orders, we had to work effectively in a team. The hardest part of the job was during busy times, when we had had to work under pressure. The most enjoyable part of the job was that in most cases I had been able to work without the need to be supervised.
