Hard to get work as a temporary worker

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They are a recruitment agency. Nothing less nothing more.I constantly call for work and may receive none. You are held to hanging around for a call which may never happen.Not their fault, they tell me but they have their regulars.

Will get you work

The interview was straight forward and they got me work starting the next day. I arrived at work and was left sitting and waiting in the canteen for nearly 2 hours despite asking which department I was supposed to be working in.... They then proceeded to tell me I was late even though I had been waiting for them as instructed.Every time I spoke to them they were obnoxious and disrespectful and rang me very early on my days off to work..... And would question me when I couldn't work. If you can accept being spoken to in a rude manner they will get you work.... But personally I think manners cost nothing.

Pros

Will get you work

Cons

Rude, poor rate of pay

Good to work for

Excellent management.... Especially the facilities manager who is a star. Have worked there for a few weeks now and can say that there is a inclusive positive attitude with the majority of staff

Productive, stressful and challenging workplace

A typical day at work involves dealing with clients, workers and colleagues. Answer phone calls, manage accounts, arrange interviews and inductions and do the admin job.

Share your experience to help others

Not recomend

Low wages, no one to help out if you struggle, just expect results. Hires young people and asks them to work silly hours with huge responsibility. No follow ups

Avoid at any cost

Shocking pay comparing to workload and management expectations. Asking for a lot of hours, on call 24/7 but would tell you off that you’re running late due to traffic or demand to work off your doctors appointment. Very unfair and lack of understanding, apprentice money in recruitment if you ask me. Working with workforce which technically don’t need to come to work if they don’t feel like it but yet it’s consultants fault that there are shortages. Pay rise? Lunch? - what does that mean? Forget about these words - never happened in Prestige no matter how well company is described by senior management.

Pros

People that work in office and onsite team.

Cons

Pay, no work/life balance, no other benefits, horrible management tricks

Fun

Very friendly and encouraging place to work, alot of experience to be learnt. The management where very understanding about any complaints and would sort it in a matter of minutes. Hardest part of the job is learning something new and being able to give your all.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Not enough hours

Worst place I've been

I did not like that place. It was a really easy job but the people in there I disliked. The team leader I had was really bad, starting to blame every mistake on others head.

Pros

Learned some things

Incompetent

Had signed up with this agency as apparently they was crying out for HGV Class 2 drivers. As a class 2 driver I have never been offered any type of role within this “prestige “ company load of rubbish False hopes and no contact and no work offered. Have called in the office to see transport officials and they are on calls allegedly rung them demanding to speak to them and they don’t return calls EVER !!!! Rude and unhelpful

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Where do I start ???
Was this review helpful?

Terrible

I would not recommend that you apply for a job here as they send you work assignment last minute, example: 20 minutes before your shift is due to start. they also mess you around with your working times as you could be working 2 hours then they require you to leave and then get disciplinary action taken out because you had left even though been told to by your site supervisor, you are only allowed to call in sick if you are willing to not get paid until you go into the head office to give reason and proof of why you're off and they will not get that weeks pay until a month after the review of why you was off, they will also lay you off just before you have worked there for 6 months as they will have to start paying you what they are paying the other employees that have worked there for more than 6 months, so overall i would recommend the you try somewhere else unless this is exactly what you are looking for

Intimidating

Wasn't with them for long. Went for a previous role and was pretty much bullied to start a week prior to when I was actually supposed to start. Told them what areas of work I am and aren't looking for but they just love to give offer me everything I can't possibly do and never hear anything for the jobs I am able to do either through them or through applying myself. When I explained this to them they just looked at me like I was dirt so haven't been back since.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Bullied into starting earlier, Staff are ignorant to clients needs.

Career driven company

Great company to work for to develop and progress within Recruitment. Each department runs very differently, however there is a lot of support and progression available from the Directors/ managers.

A good company to work for as long as you are punctual, hard working and reliable, Some jobs you need your own transport because of work locations.
