Lovely management

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Lovely office manager , and admin team keen to create a positive vibe . Free breakfasts and nice use of kitchen for everyone to relax . Fun Christmas dos arranged and overall kind friendly environment. At worst too stressful , recruiters not pulling their weight and dealing with complaint after complaints.

Pros

Free breakfast, leave early on fridays, pub trips .

Cons

Too many complaints, unfair division of responsibilities

Worst Agency ever

They have sent me and another mate in a construction site....they wasted my day and my fuel they didnt pay me.... I didnt start the job because the site didn't want to work anymore with these time wasters..called Optima.... stay away from this agency because they are not serious at all. Worst worst worst agency of construction Think twice before you work with them .

i have worked for optima and did work not so far from home. but did not have any PPE provided. They had no time to find out my working hours.i have not seen them neither been invited to office even once that made me feel like they are not a serious company to work for.the salary was not advanced comparing to other major companies for the hard work.

Pros

Terrible

Staff are useless and didn’t pay me until a week of constant phone calls. Kept being told I would be called back and was never contacted once by them. Never working for them again. Was also told £12 per hour only to find out a week after working that it was £11

Pros

None

they don't pay you what was agreed

Most of the times I worked for them, I would say every single time I worked for them, they paid less then it was agreed. Every time I had to be stressed and had to call them to fight for my money. Every single time. Always.

Pros

you can always leave Optima and find a job somewhere else instead

Cons

low rates and constant cheating
Was this review helpful?

They are scam & they short pay people all the time

Do not work for this people.... they will tell you the job is for 9hrs but pay 8hrs ! And they will £11 instead of £12. Dodgy agency beware they are scam .

No Problems

I've got no complaints about Optima, I was paid the right amount, on time every week. The agent I dealt with was friendly and helpful kept me up to date with my job.

Liars agreed to a rate and got paid less

They are a buch of liars, agreed for a rate per day and got paid £20 less(per day) . They offer me a "long term job" in Bath which in reality was for a day cover for a guy going for a wedding. They are a shame for crane industry!

Pros

Good liars

Cons

Wasting people time. Respect is missing. Arrogants

Liars

Dont believe a word this company's says. They will lie to you whatever the cost. Was told ongoing work with overtime ect and when I got here it was only a days work. They then decided to fleece me out of hours and the woman on the phone was very rude when I asked about this. She said as she dont get paid for break time no one else does. This is against the law.

One of the best agencies to work for

Unlike other reviews left by illiterate and most probably fake ex employees, I have had a constructive relationship with Optima as a Painter/Decorator over a period of about 5 years. I found them helpful, informed, polite and a pleasure to work for. Their background checks are stringent and in-depth and well needed. I have been employed by them on 4 different contracts/occasions and have never had any problems. Recommended. Simples.

Pros

Good wages, quick payment

Cons

Shell company margin, but hey we all have to pay it.

They’ve got a daft little punk working for them

I don’t want some little batty man offending me over the phone because I don’t want to take his peasant wage... Instantly turned down their work The kid should be sacked and sent back to his council house where him and his family can leach our hard earnt money the way they should Proper rat...
