Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Describing Gig is quite difficult, but I would explain it this way, Gig is an agency that helps you find jobs, some would call it a placement agency, They specialise in training interviewees to be a waiter/waitress. This practical part of the interview runs for around and hour or so, depending on how long it takes the interviewee to grasp the instructions given to them. The practical part of this interview is what determines whether or not the interviewee would be accepted to proceed with the rest of the interview, being reviewing and completing the interviewees personal details.

Pros

personal log in for the application

Cons

you don't always get the job

Very bad experience - no pay & no contact

GIG suspended my account without giving any reason or explanation and then refused to pay for the work I did.I wrote many e-mails to which no one replied, and I made an endless number of calls that no one answered.A few months later, I still have not received any payment or an answer.I do not recommend.

Not professional management

At the beginning we was on-site for a presentation about health and safety. That arrogant guy he didn't even respect it. And he pretended to pas the test, of course I did with maximum. He used an electrical cord from a table with a projector to a plug-in at a high of 40 cm. The don't even had an extension. They said we have shifts, but they just checking people to have registered.

Pros

The managers should go as warehose operative

Cons

Unprofessional management

Potential to be a great company to work for

Management is good and respond to any issues very quickly. It is also very easy to get in touch with the office if need be. A lot variety in shifts and locations. Not always chosen for shifts which can be frustrating when you are relying on work

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Not always selected for shifts you apply for

The productive workplace at GIG.

My opinion about a typical work day at gig was good. The work was good and very fast paced at times challenges rose but i always managed to overcome them with the help of the manager.

Not very functional

The idea is great but it's far from functioning properly. They have a very long way to go. I would suggest not wasting your time and find a real job. Very poor Managment.

Good

This job overall was a good job for a student as it is flexible, however, because it is an agency, often staff would treat you rudely. The pay however was pretty decent for a student. Another down side was that you would work non stop for very long hours.

Pros

flexible

Cons

bad staff
