Worked at S? Head Office as a temp on reception. The company and Huntress not very supportive and lacked giving information. The hardest part of the job was being left alone ALOT, getting one in particular abusive caller, tried my best to field it away from the person he was trying to get hold of so he could complain and abuse. The most enjoyable part of the job were that most of the staff were down to earth and friendly. One male was a back stabber. But you only need one eh.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Long Journey from where I lived every day.

Good agency, have friendly staff and present you with a good amount of jobs when you are on their radar, but only when you are on their radar need to stay in contact.

I enjoyed working there, as everyone was helpful and knowledgeable. In addition, the management kept you informed each week of what was going on in the business.

If there is any problems with the place of employment they never support the employee. Interested in company gain only. Hounded with calls from the agency when employment commenced, but once employed they are not interested.

Unfavourable to the colleague and supports the descrimation of the hiring company. If you are looking for no support and no real career security, Huntress is the company to go through.
Pros
None
Cons
No security

I was not a permanent member of the team so my experience I don't think is typical and would not be fair to imply anything negative. I worked with other temp workers.
Pros
Great learning experience
Cons
Quite isolated from the rest of the organisatino

Excellent training you cannot fault the previous branch manager or the training team in London. I thoroughly enjoyed working at Huntress until new management came in which dulled the overall buzz in the office
Pros
Great incentives and regular company get togethers in London

I used this company who were happy to find work for me and I managed to get an interview. The consultant was really helpful at first and a pleasure to speak to during the recruitment process and obtaining an interview for me. However, after attending the interview which I thought had gone really well I believe I did not get the job. This is fine as I've had many interviews in the past where I did not get the job but after contacting Huntress to enquire about the result of my interview and possible feedback if I did not get the role, the consultant did not want to know and speak to me. I called on 3 occasions and all 3 times I was told by another member of the team that the consultant was on the other line and would get back to me. They never did. I therefore assume because they never got back to me and were always on the phone when I called that this was an excuse not to talk to me. Therefore this reflects my rating.
Pros
Really helpful and efficient in finding you possible employment
Cons
Terrible customer after service.

A standard day at work for me would invlolve preparing microfilm on a computer system before moving the microfilm onto another system to pepare it for the next step which was barcoding. Onece it was barcoding a copy would be made and filled into a folder on internet explorer. I have learned how to created and move folders on internet explorer and also to take more notes when moving to others jobs. When I finished with this job the next job required a much higher learning curb and I should have taken more notes to compensate for this. The Poeple their were nice and easy to get on with.
Pros
Nice poepke
Cons
none

I a easy way to apply for job until someone advertises a job and you have to start from scratch filling in all their company information and sometimes is too much having to start uploading cvs all over again and i give up half way through . Surely if they advertise on indeed you should be able to apply through Indeed.
Pros
Easy on Indeed
Cons
Hard if they dont fill in all the information expexting you too fill in their company info..
