Production operative

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Staff

Shift work which i prefer

When working it's good but can go from full week to two or three days a week to no work all week. When there is work it is very rewarding earning a decent wage with holiday pay and I fully enjoy enjoy the factory where I am employed and the help of the best connection team

Pros

Decent hours and pay, holiday pay

Cons

Not guaranteed a full week's work

Ok

Not much communication between management and staff, not enough work for the amount of people they are employing in the same workplace, be wary that hours and shifts are not guaranteed whatsoever and will not be consistent for long if at all. Pay is good however is different rates for different hours, eg. 8 hour shift will be 8.63ph and 12 hour shifts will be 9.47ph nights and overtime vary also.

Scammers

Poor pay, not listened to, treated like just a number, don't work for these cowboys if you have any self respect, as they promise you the earth and deliver very little, pay is shockingly bad.

Friendly and professionals

Very friendly, polite and careful people. I work every day and getting paid on time. They want the employees to be happy with the work and the work environment. My work is easy and I enjoy it a lot, as it is mostly a team work. The management staff is overall friendly and ready to help. Nice and easy place to work!

Pros

Getting paid on time

Cons

Nothing for now

Worst connection

Lied to from day one about full time employment. The holiday points system is a joke! They are the most unprofessional agency I’ve worked with in over ten years of working with agency’s. They cheat you out of hours and when you ask about holidays or shifts or anything really you get nothing but attitude. Immature staff won’t help you an although their advert looks good id advise you give this one a miss. Waste of your time and effort. It’s because we take the shifts that criminal agency’s like this are able to operate and cheat more hard working people of full time jobs and we’ll earned money

Pros

Good people to work with

Cons

Lying cheating agency

Best connection Thornton Ferrero Alfreton Somercotes

Sutton in Ashfield Best Connection office employs large numbers of Romanian and Polish people. They even have a Best Connection office permanently based inside Thorntons Somercotes/Alfreton factory with over half the "Best connection" Agency office staff are from Romania and Poland. What this means in reality is that Romanians and Polish are given priority to work in the different sections of the Thorntons/Ferrero factory there. Typically many British agency workers turn up for their shift but are told by the line manager that there is No work,go and see Best Connection agency inside Thorntons they say. The agency then send the workers home. They have No consideration for the journey and efforts we have made in getting to the Thorntons factory.If you do decide to sign up with this agency you can expect to work on average between 3 and four days a week-Not a full week as they state.You will be give the run around and the agency do Not give a toss

Pros

Affordable canteen

Cons

British agency workers treated like dirt

Good agencey not so good jobs

The agencey are very professional but the place they sent me to work the work was very boring all I did was glue rubber bungs to a radiator. And I didn't want to risk being stuck on that day in day out. As you can imagine it's very tedious and dull. Not hard work but very soul destroying.

Pros

Good pay professional agencey.

Cons

Boring, uninspiring and no challenge.

Quick turnaround

Was put into employment almost immediately after registering. That job then turned permanent. They called every week to let you know if you were needed for the next week.
