Worst agency to work for don't help you with nothing staff are rude and do the time sheets on a Wednesday but don't send them to the payroll company till late friday afternoon so payments don't hit your account till 6 clock ! Avoid at all cost

I have found my time as a Labourer at Randstad UK as a good time to hone my work skills but it's not as shinefull as it seems, you have a permanent job but from time to time there's problems with the payroll agency wich will mess up and you end up getting paid later on but overall a fun place .Again if they would provide PPE for every person they have there for more than 6 months would be a bonus, and salary raises from time to time.Depending where you work you might even get 7 days a week.Definitevly recommend if you want something stable and secure. Pro tip : Give it your all when you work don't do it half-assed,and make sure you don't choose short term jobs.Be responsible have a good work ethic and have fun.

Working for catterpiller was a good job with good work and home life balance the pay is at a good rate and the job over all is good. The only problem is the agency as they tend to mess you around a lot and it’s because of that I would not recommend working for them at all. They refused to pay bonus witch we were entitled to instead they pocketed it for them self untill getting caught they mess there employees about chenging the jobs you applied for to what they want you to do and they change the times you work aswell without consulting yourself

Pros

Cons
you don't really have a per job

Okay for temporary work. Umbrella corperation paye so not best for long term work unless you like losing out on £40 a week in N.I levy. These are tax evasion repayments that the workers (us) have to front out of our wages, as well as Randstad’s charge and our tax and N.I payments. They are very good at getting work available though, can’t fault Randstad for that.
Pros
Quick work, good management
Cons
Poor pay options

I have worked safely around people & equipment, and practice these principle's any time when the work/environment is dangerous. I follow safety guidelines when the practice calls for such training and safety procedures.Good, hard, honest work. Good pay. Taught me a lot about building houses. Worked in all weather conditions
Pros
Safety orientated, great coworker
Cons
don't know now

they are a good agency to work for i have never been out of work from them so i would highly recommend them! as soon as one job finishes they have a new start for you the day after. the rate of pay isnt the best but it gets you through.
