Labourer in Devon
on 28 January 2020
Worked for a company via set square agency. Rolled up holiday pay in your hourly rate
If you take on agency work with Set square be sure to ask if your holiday pay is included in your hourly rate a practice common with employment agencies even though a ruling at the ECJ found the practice to be unlawful in 2006. I was not informed that my holiday pay would be included in my hourly rate, I later found out that I was on minimum wage with an extra £1 per hour for holiday pay. Other than this office staff were helpful and quick to respond.

Worst agency I have ever had to deal with.
To begin with rates were uncompetitive considering highly skilled high quality candidates with perfect safety record that were required by the high profile client on what was already a very media sensitive project.Setsquare not only provided the skilled personal to deliver the project but the management too. No background checks were done, so they had members of the team in charge on site who were clearly out of their depth, performing incompetently to the detriment of safety of ourselves and others. I understand it wasn’t setsquare direct fault of the health and safety violations happening on site but they do have some responsibility firstly to only put forward candidates who have been checked out and proven to be competent. Sure sometimes the wrong people slip through the net who shouldn’t do, but then action should be taken to remove and replace the problematic candidates once the issue has been identified. Risks were being taken and control measures compromised contributing to an incredible high stress high pressure situation. The whole project was getting out of hand and escalating towards a potential serious incident. No ones job is worth taking life threatening risks. Ended up walking away from job, not worth putting self in danger or doing prison time for man slaughter if something were to happen, and everyday it felt like it could at any moment. In my opinion they were a significant part of the problem I suspect because they overlooked background checks and criminal records so that they could keep some in a position who was attractively cheap. And like usual, just comes down to making money. But at what cost?

Poor management
Poor management with no proven site experience they personally have , hence the poor pay rates they advertise stay well away from theses cowboys better agencies are around with qualified personnel in the construction field giving better rates of pay.

They are liars
Told me I was on 1270 an hour self employed as a skilled labourer. Then next day rang back and said job role had changed to being a cleaner on-site for the same money. Next day rang back said client doesn't accept self employed and that I can work for setsquare buts it's now 11.20 an hour with holidays included!! Hhhh Soreally
