Applied for a position, got a phone call from a lady who was not only rude and obnoxious, but also demeaning and patronizing with a tone of xenophobia. Very rude and unprofessional, literally hung up the phone to my face after insulting me and calling me in so many words a job hopper! I dont recommend, you look for a job that suits your needs and these people are supposed to help you find the right fit, but she wasn't interested.
The work for First Recruitment is interesting because you see how the interior airplane cabin is being built, how the seats for the airplane passengers are created. The team there is great, but it's dangerous to work there because they use adhesives that are bad for breathing.
Sadly i cannot recommend this agency to anyone, takes them long time to calculate your holiday hours, you need to chase them for everything, they don't respect your privacy, messaging and calling late at night, not treating everyone fairly for example they don't give everyone the same pay rise even tho your doing the same job as others, doesn't matter if you work hard or you are skilled.The only positive thing i can say that you get one hour break, and they pay you on time and the correct amount
Four weekly pay, long hours, weekend work
when I got job with this company it was not the same what was advertised when I started with the company . was advertised as every other weekend off not true worked every weekend for five weeks as asst manager of charity shop in haywards heath only works Monday Tuesday and Wednesday .but when I spoke to first recruitment they say they are told one thing they only go on what they have been told but to them its money £££££ not some ones life. I most say that the over all working for a charity in haywards heath as had lots of manager in the last 10 months as told from asst manager .be careful !!!
no lunch break
worked in Crawley via Horsham branch , work is work an agency like this is not going to get you a career , I was always paid however after certain time period your pay should increase......I ha had to remind them 3wks in a row. Incredibly tight with pay & relentlessly apologising for copius repeated mistakes ; essentially unprofessional. Would not recommend unless you are desperate.
Reminding them of pay amendments, unprofessional
I was also working for an Insurance Co in Haywards Heath, lots of positive feedback from the Company and despite being requested back by the Company and told to keep myself available for that time, First Recruitment despite knowing I was wanted back, placed someone else within the role who required training, costing the company an extra half day.
I was recruited on a temporary basis for a well know Insurance company in Haywards Heath. Think of adverts at the station. All was well for 4 weeks, no feedback, good or bad, until I had calls and e-mails on Sunday TO NOT go back to work for their client on Monday. I never got any explanation to as why,(other than circumstances had changed) and a month later I got my P45 with no explanation as to why this had been done. My calls were blanked. Totally unprofessional, and have involved certain government agencies as to gain a right for a truthful explanation to the whole affair. This will involve their client, for sure, as I know my employment rights. Be careful with this outfit.
Stock checking and reconciliation, moving stock physically and on system with hard copy. Investigation and locating missing stock. Team Leader friendly and approachable, department manager unapproachable. Co workers friendly and informative. Hardest part of the job was searching for missing stock within huge warehouse backtracking previous locations and all surrounding areas. Most enjoyable was good communication of job knowledge and learning from co workers I worked for first recruitment for only a little time. While working for them I felt like I was just a number, had no feedback from the job I was working on. I do not have any positive words to say about this agency.
Needed own car to get to warehouse location, no public transport
