Cons
Short breaks. Poor pay.

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 have worked for lots of agencies in the past but find Encore to be the most reliable and honest. They try and give you ongoing jobs with decent pay and the staff in the office are pleasant and happy to help.
Pros
Good pay and Jobs
Cons
Because its temp it can sometimes end early

Good agency with diffrent jobs to offer. Most of them are on minimum wage but diffrent shifts to suit any child care commitments. You need to have your own transport as you can directed to work in diffrent places.

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
Pros
Okay Job/life balence
Cons
too little notice

Good company to work for, training and benefits schemes are rewarding and relevant. Long hours of work and stronger members of team have to support less capable colleagues. Varied work with lots of challenges to overcome.

The agency, Encore Personell, itself is good although quite unorganised. I have had to submit paperwork multiple times on different occasions due to mistakes made by the customer service advisers. However, the company they sent me to work for (Boden) was very professional and my co-workers and trainers there were very kind and made me feel comfortable. They mostly emphasise punctuality and cheerfulness at Boden.
Pros
free 10 min breaks every two hours

Really why need to ask for copies of my diplomas certificates never a professional communication, It s like work self employed the difference much more less money or benefits, We as a worker very much do almost everything on the place of work company no arrangements between the agency or company to benefit the worker etc, The co workers defensive tipical behaviour make everything that is possible for don t have work inclusive welding machine inclusive my tools where somewhere else not on the place that I left them the day before impacting on my work performance really badly, Much more to write but I feel I wasting my time,
Pros
sorry can t think in any
Cons
minimum 48 hours a week, don t supply ppe, tools, or any other for the mechnical engineering ), and if do cost more then the market cost, even with the goverment sheme for the and travel they should do all this work for you o, r atlest help you to do it

When at work we usually label pack tea bags and other various items depending on what work there is. We do 4 hours then have a half hour break then do another 3 and half hours before going home. In my point of view there is nothing enjoyable about this work place. The hardest part of the job is packing the tea bags because the targets are ridiculous. Most of my co-workers are foreign so i don't really speak to them. So far in my time working here I have not learnt anything really because you only need basic skills to perform the work.
Pros
money redeemed for travel expenses.
Cons
lack of work
