Good work place but poor pay rates

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Had good reliable work but pay rate was better at other agencies, also umbrella payments which further reduce pay other than that a decent agency easy to communicate with no trouble with pay.

Big Waste of time

Was called regarding a role previously, was told i could start the next day and was still chasing weeks later, they couldnt care less about helping get people into work, they just want more people on thier books to benefit them.


Nothing at all


They wont help you get a job

Regular work

It can go quiet at Christmas, but majority of year there's plenty of work for hardworking people. Always the chance of getting a permanent contract at a place.

Lovely work environment and wonderful people around you. You will always feel welcomed without any discrimination. Staff talk to you with respect and you always feel happy to go to work everyday. Never a dull moment as you will always learn something new and different from your past experience

Out going and overall wacky but serious environment

It's really good so far my only problems would be them not sorting me a door key for a week but all sorted now and on the way to becoming a propper member at Gould alloys.


Free coffee

Only best bit about it is working 8 till 5 Monday to Friday the worst bits about it is standing in a line for hours getting aches and pains with you standing in a line for hours not moving about and having to work in a dead fast pace and you work there like your a machine they don't care that your a human being they see you as a machine or a robot


Monday To Friday 8 Till 5 Payment Every Friday


Standing In A Line For Hours

Straight up idiots

Hilarious incompetence to the extreme, in the Notts office. Beggar's belief that they have a job in the first place, never mind that they're trying to put other people into jobs.


Pro is they're not 24 hour so humanity gets a break from their idiocy

Great for training and progression

A great place to work, environment is fast paced and sometimes challenging but it’s also fun and competitive. No 2 days are the same and w rate rewarded well for our efforts.


Great training and progression


Long hours

Helpful , supportive

Thorn baker is a great company. When I went for my interview I filled some paper work and had a quick , relaxed interview and they found me a job close to me straight away. Since starting the job Thorn Baker have helped me with any problems or questions I’ve had.

Went all the way to toton lane

Went all the way to toton lane for them to say I wasn’t needed there that they had too much staff , then they got me a second job which fired and didn’t even tell the reason in 5 days .They are a joke

Terrible agency

They lie about everything, pay, job duration. Then they just don't pay you. They ignore, press busy on calls. Just don't waste your time on their jobs




Biggest con I've worked for
Was this review helpful?

Not worth it

Everyone is over worked and the management were told to start being nicer when people started to quit just after one day. Their targets are too high and you are berated if you cannot fulfil them
Was this review helpful?

Mostly bad unfortunately

The actual workplace environment is decent, you just get in with what you’re set to do. But on the technical side of things I did have many issues with this company, they let me go and refused to give me a definitive reason why. I’ve heard many things about them, bad reputation really. Lack of care.

Wouldn’t do it again

Nightmare since I left They messed up my tax code and also have me down as still being paid from them when I’m not meaning I’m getting taxed more now from my job as it looks like I have 2 jobs It’s been 8weeks since I’ve had anything to do with them they need to sort out there stuff Hard to get in contact with and I never actually met any one from there it was all text looking back now this is very shady would not recommend working here in the slightest
