Was pretty good working here decent amount of work I only did it short term but enjoyed it money wasn’t great and I believe I was under paid. As the job I was doing the drivers were on more than £12 per hour as an agency driver I o lay got £10 after speaking with the agency they said they were paying my national insurance so it works out the same I took their word o. It but after inspection of payslips I’m pretty sure it was coming out of my wage. But it’s good place to be in between jobs. Perfect for that In fact.
Pros
It was pretty easy and straight forward
Cons
Low pay

I would never work there again in their Waitrose branch, pay (after they deduct you without telling you) is terrible. The managers love fo remind you that you’re disposable and your jobs not secure, they will cancel shifts just like that. On days off they will call you up asking you to cover people and only give you half hours notice, under paid and under appreciated.
Pros
Nothing

They only care about there contracts, they don’t care about staff welfare or that plenty of staff are being abused for the colour of there skin by the clients Managment, the pay is abismal and there no support from the office what so ever, when you report Something to the office they say “your no longer required for the assessment” The only good thing is you get paid on time but the pay is always wrong for the amount of hours worked.
Pros
Paid on time
Cons
Wrong pay, no support, being fobbed off, rude staff

They put everyone through a high standard in-house training which is one of the best in the industry which is followed up with an annual review unfortunately that's where the positives end, they make empty promises and no matter how hard you work or how much new business you win there is very little chance of progression.
Pros
Good in-house training
Cons
Empty promises, low salary and lack of progression within the company

They called me almost immediately after applying on a website. Optimal balance between work and spare time. I have learned new for me Sage program for accountant and stock control. Additionally, I learned to work in an e-commerce environment, which is great!
Pros
Fast job start

Best connections where ok as an agency, but sometimes little slow at sorting issues or getting back to you. The job I was sent to at Alderley Edge, well different story, permanent staff are clicky and dont give you a fare chance, they cherry pick best jobs and you get left with the cleaning mist time. Wasnt given any proper training, one if the supervisors is incompetent and flaps over everything. I'd give this one a wide birth as they seem to have high turn over of staff.

Don’t know about their other branches but the Bedford branch of the Best Connection have been an absolute pleasure to work for. The whole branch is without exception the best agency I have worked for. Always keeping you informed and always professionally handled when calling them. If the feedback they get is of you being a good worker they will not let you down! Cannot recommend enough.
Pros
They put you in jobs and they do it well
Cons
None

I have worked on two different jobs. Each has advantages and disadvantages. One is more demanding but better paid, the other is easier but less paid. Good cooperation with other employees who are willing to help you.
Pros
Free coffe, tea and fruits

Direct colleagues great to work with. Higher management need to get with the times and focus more on employees and less on lining their own pockets. No room for progression, military style following, not encouraged to put your best foot forward and improve procedures and policies
Pros
Relaxed
Cons
Poor pay, no advancement in career

Was told to come in on a two week training 6.30 start and then change to 2.30 after two weeks, got there on the first day and was shown what to do by a guy that told me he hates training people, to carry on learning for what was 4 hours and after that I was left to do work on my own for 6days to then find the afternoon shifts i was told to go on people was switching over on the same day so that was weird. A week in and we get called to a meeting where the company demanded phones to be put in your bag where there is/isn’t cameras the supervisor didn’t know or a locked room where the whole ware house can dip into a box for any phone. When asked about emergency procedures they wanted me to give a number so anyone can ring them that person would ring my supervisor (if he’s in office) to then come and find me, dangerous game of whispers when it’s an emergency and I got nothing but shrugged shoulders and a head down, I didn’t even get told about breaks and what I was and wasn’t aloud to do. When I emailed about the situation I got a phone call to ask what happened then nothing else. Just a normal recruitment company! Don’t care as long as they’re getting paid.

*Cambridge Branch*Probably the worst place I've ever worked, and I've had my fair share unfortunately. The job itself can be fun but the Management is appalling. Never in my life have I seen such con artists. They also have a tendency to string you along with promises of commission and other benefits. This Company should really be looked into for the way it runs. Big disparity between workforce and management. Anything you say is disregarded or ignored because you are simply a consultant. Very arrogant branch/County Manager. He is possibly one of the worst human beings I have had the displeasure of meeting in my entire life.Also the on-call aspect of the job is laughable.
Pros
People you meet and networking chances
Cons
Everything else especially management
