Fun and Productive

Indeed featured review

Early mornings were difficult, Very strict with lateness and abscence . Weekly Pay and Good incentives during the summer period. Lot of favouritism though

Incompetent management

Have too many managers who all get involved. Too many problems. All they care about is money. You’re just a number to them as long as they make money it’s fine

Very helpful and friendly, it’s understandably a very busy place to work but there’s always support from optime! Would recommend!

busy workplace

The past branch I worked at closed but the support I received at the time I worked there was fantastic! The team of colleagues through all the branches was lovely and all backed each other. Happy times

(Apply direct to DHL!) Not a very good agency with poor treatment and communication

(Apply direct to DHL) The job itself is ok; if you are really in need of money, would stay away from this agency as they are just there to get employees quickly without proper assessment and even after you are hired they are rude and don’t communicate! They act nice in-person initially but not after.

Truly a disappointment

Ever since joining the company and role I was employed for, there has been nothing but disappointment. Training, pay, management - in general & poor quality treatment and respect for their colleagues - communication between Optime and employee are poor to non-exsitent. When attempting to contact them regarding anything, it seems like no one is in the office (Crawley) - but when attending, the office is always full - it takes an age for someone to pick up the phone, when they do the solution is to phone back, and no one ever knows what the situation of the previous call was about, so the process starts again.


Low pay, unsocial hours, poor management

Busy workplace, no days are ever the same

They took long to get back to me at first but after that training was smooth it was three days at a nearby site. There are busy and slow days depending on school holidays/season. You meet nice people at work but there’s also people you have to be wary of. So my advice is don’t get comfortable with people too quickly. Management at the airport have their favourites and are usually harsh. You’re not allowed to take tips which is interesting. You work 4 days on and 2 days off so it’s good for anyone who likes a good work/life balance.


different lunch options, nice coworkers, lots of days off


Bad management, favouritism, not being allowed to take tips

Great place to work

Great agency to work with, helped me with quick paperwork to get my blue ID for Heathrow Airport. Also not like other agencies, they allow you to get transferd to company easily. Some agencies make it impossible to move to companies if they want to take you directly.

Despite all the reviews I saw prior to starting with Optime, I can say that they are a great agency! They provide amazing training, you can always call them if you have any questions and they will always find a solution to your problem.

Never responded…

I got offered the job, then they never responded to my emails or texts ever again. They offered bad pay and very few benefits.Overall just made me realise to never go with a recruitment agency again because Optime were unreliable.


Nice staff


Never responded to my texts or calls, bad pay

Great staff

I don't think any woman wants to feel harassed by her boss, at work all women feel that way. It’s not nice work with someone who treat you in a creepy way.
