Not only was the Orion staff member abusive, but she was constantly unprofessional to the point that she would call and threaten us whilst having food in her mouth. She was either i) as close to illiterate as a so-called professional could be, or ii) unimaginably lazy when sending company-approved emails. Key dates would be incorrect, with last minute bookings costing the employer company several hundred pounds extra due to the Orion employees’ apathy. She needed to be prompted at least twice to do even the most minute task. Not only was she a nightmare to deal with, but her manager even sent out contracts with incorrect employee names on them. It has been 24 days since we finished the contracted job with them, and our payment is still pending with our only contact telling us that she is going on holidays before she approves them. In a nutshell, if you want any shred of quality service, do not hire Orion.
the people in the company don't care about the engineers as they have them out going to jobs that can't be completed and you still have to pay for your van and petrol even though the company are aware of this.. only getting 2-3 jobs a day and the office not having g anything g else for you. jobs that are miles away from each other and complain when your unable to get to two locations booked at the same time. they have no regard for how it is to be a engineer on the road and are only concerned with office matters and will leave the engineer not earning any money. over 20 engineers have left this company within a month because of the way they conduct themselves, that speaks volumes!!! Bye Orion thank god
I think Orion Group is a great company to work for as an employee and as a contractor. They are very fair and understanding, give you good hours and will easily let you work round them too (Work Part time, work from home some days). They give you a good salary which they are usually willing to negotiate at the start of your career. The management team are extremely helpful and reliable along with all the other staff and my co workers were lovely and spent some time with me to help with my new role. They did lots of different types of things to get all the staff involved with each other e.g Christmas parties, lunches etc.

A typical day at work involved prioritising the vacancies that fell within my region and/or discipline, ensuring that said vacancies were advertised, sourcing potential candidates from a wide variety of sources, including online job sites and our own internal database, contacting both clients and candidates to arrange interviews and following up on any placements. Learned a great deal about both Agency Recruitment and the Oil & Gas industry during time spent working at Orion Group. During my 8 years working at Orion Group, all 4 of the managers I worked for over the years were extremely professional, helpful, dedicated individuals who led from the front and were a credit to the organisation. Regarding co-workers, there was a very high turnover of staff during my time with the company, but the core group of Recruiters I worked with were among the most hard-working, responsible and team orientated people I've ever had the privilege of serving with. The hardest part of this job was trying to source candidates and make placements on vacancies which were passed onto us from other offices which were over a week old, or were niche positions with a very small pool of candidates. Sending CV's into portals with little to no client feedback was also a little demoralising, but was an accepted part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling of satisfaction in matching the perfect candidate for a job and making a long-term job placement come true.
Good Management and Co-workers, Interesting Industry.
Inconsistent quality of clients and vacancies, could be frustrating and unfulfilling at times.
I enjoy working under Orion Group, all other workers i am set with are nice people and hard workers, the only issue i have is that the work is unpredictable i have to be available with short notice.
Good hourly rate.
