Easy work and nice people.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
So I’ve just left this place after not being in work for well over a week. They lay you off constantly if there’s no work for you. They’ll say you’ll be back in on a certain date but you never are. Everyone is nice and welcoming, management are all lovely but I think their all useless, never know what their doing. Agency are useless as well, never reply to text messages and are just rude to you. Overall, I really enjoyed this job but they lay you off to easily which is a shame.

Pros

The people

Cons

Lay you off.

Disgraceful

I didn't even get a chance to work with them and they had staff who was rude refusing to call back sending me to the wrong site for work. Unorganised recruitment team rude for no reason I feel sorry for anyone having to work with them

Dont waste your time

The people in general are nice, however the company itself is awful, and poorly run, they fail at responding to emails, or calls, which is shocking considering they do nothing all day. They fail at delivering any promises they make. overall look else where

Fun and welcoming staff

Management doesn’t care if you are more skilled then someone else who’s in a higher position the just want you to work so the higher management won’t chase them.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Higher management sits around alot

Work/life balance is not good

Working hours for myself were 8am - 6pm which was mandatory, which in recruitment can be expected but then I was getting questioned as to why I was taking my full 1 hour lunch break when there were calls/emails to make. The training wasn't great as this was my first recruitment role so didn't know the full extent of what I was doing but no-one took it as their role to show me the ropes, which I found strange.

Pros

Good location.

Cons

Long hours, poor training.

Good!

Easy to get the hang of. Everyone is eager to help you if you are struggling and the environment is pleasant. It is fun to do and I gain experience in the progress.

Non productive unrealistic targets

Appalling Management - Unrealistic Targets. The owner of this company gave all management duties to his son whom did not know enough about people management to instil a good working environment, which made for a very uncomfortable environment throughout the business.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Managment

Good starting point.

Good family run business to work for when starting your career in recruitment. like any industrial recruitment it is long hours, hard work and not always very rewarding however this is no reflection on First Personnel in particular yet a sector standard unfortunately.

Cons

long hours, permanently on call
Was this review helpful?

None

Nothing to say except that they helped out at a time that I needed help. Difficult to speak to the right person, problems not addressed quickly, misinformation about job requirements.

Pros

Adequate

Cons

Slow to sort out problems.
