Avoid like the plague

Worst agency I've ever worked for period. Consultants have no people skills paid through an umbrella company which is part of their group so your paying them twice to receive your wages, question there procedures then your unemployed and no longer required

Cons

Unprofessional, childish

Stay Away

Culture is very bad for mental health.On the day furlough was announced a group of us was pulled into a room and asked to leave. Declined offering us furlough and ignored us for 2 weeks. We then received a letter to say we had been dismissed due to poor performance. We were unable to get any help with benefits whilst in lockdown one they had failed to pay our tax, had withheld commission and technically dismissed us. We could not feed our families and I complained heavily to be sent a dreadful letter from the CEO.I would strongly recommend avoiding this company as an employee or customer.

Pros

Getting to leave everyday

Cons

The employment offer is a con

Don’t honour contractual pay rates

Beware of this company, I worked for Russell Taylor Cheshire branch, as welder fabricator in North Wales, rate was poor £12. Come the end of my contract, they told me they paid me too much and wouldn’t honour their contractual pay rate. Tried to negotiate recovery of my monies but they were a Nightmare to deal with, blaming the payment discrepancy on their associated umbrella company!I now refuse to work for them. They don’t care if your family go without food.

Pros

Non

Cons

Con people

not so good!!!

I would never work for this agency again, even if your paying £25 a hour... cant keep a promise. The company i'm working for is okay, site supervisor is a great bloke, the lads are also great to work with, its just the agency whats the problem.Just fulls you with rubbish like they do.. They pay different rates on the same job sites and ask guys not to tell the other workers by text not to tell them ,other workers, doing the same job and when we tell them thats cheeky company answer is thats supply and demand ! POOR not professional....

Do not work for them

Please do not work for this agency. After I had completed some work for a company he refused to pay me. Please avoid at all cost, the recruiters didn't even back me to try and get my money which means they must have still got paid

Terminated and not paid during Covid 19

A group of colleagues and I were terminated as we had less than 6 months service (March 2020). They held back a whole quarters commission and left us and our families with nothing. They took 10 minutes to terminate us and walk us off site and we were not given letters, payslips or any form of documentation to help us claim benefits. The group of people affected have endlessly written to them and we have been ignored. The Russell Taylor Group will watch you and your family starve before the owner sells his Bentley!! Shocking way to treat people and I highly recommend that no company uses their services. Very immoral company and Ben Russell should be ashamed of himself!

Pros

Leaving every day

Cons

Earning commission and not being paid

Excellent team - Great worker incentives

There are a great team working there with an emphasis on cross-selling. Each department will help out the others. The business has grown massively from a small family owned business to a large national recruitment provider.

Pros

Strong team ethic

Cons

poor database of candidates

Shocking

A company of clock and dagger, no principles r ethics, they just wanted the turn over and they didnt care who they stood on to get it. II have never witnessed such a cowboy operation that always hid the truth from one another and then complained that people where not working as a team.
