Avoid at all costs

I was given a role and was advised id have to travel from up north to sheffield to ensure someone in theor IT team could get me access to everything to fulfill my role. I was told to hand in my notice which i did and spent £300 getting to and from the location. After a week of employment with no access to any of the companies system i was told id be let go as i wasnt able to work. I explained to venn group the only reason i travelled so far was so my manager could give me access to everything i needed. Venn group are now refusing to pay me for the past week despite me telling them i wasnt comfortable leaving my last role until we was all set up for me to work. They assured me i wouldnt be penalised for any delays but are now refusing to pay me. I have a few colleagues i put forward for this role whi have all decided to avoid this agency due to the stress they have caused.

Pros

Fraudsters

Worked as a support worker they illegally rolled up holiday pay and also delayed equal pay stating my job had changed when it hadn’t. When queries offered no support, senior consultants not knowledgeable and are only interesting in making money off you... avoid avoid avoid

Not a pleasant place to work

I feel that the management within this company are inconsiderate and dictate rather than lead and motivate. I am thankful for the experience but I would never work there again.

Productive workplace

I really like working as a Credit Control Administrator, because no day is the same. Important is to pay attention to details, to be punctual and think outside the box. The hardest part is that sometimes is very stressful and I am overwhelmed by work and you can't predict how your day will look like, but I like my job and I really enjoy the time when I resolve the issue.

Most unprofessional manager I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Some wonderful kind hearted souls there, as well as some vindictive sadistic characters too. Unfortunately I found my way onto the team with a terrible manager who had no patience what so ever. Fake people & unnerving atmosphere, with backstabbers behind every corner; which is to be expected in a corporate office in London. You could have a great base here if you find yourself with the right support and team, but roll the wrong dice... you'll be sorry. Contracted hours are 8:30 - 18:00, but your expected to work until 8:00 am 6:30pm minimum with no overtime. Leaving or arriving at your contracted times is hugely frowned upon. You don't get breaks, except for a break to go and purchase food, which you are then expected to eat at the desk.

Cons

Long hours, Short/ 0 lunch breaks, Poor management

Beware - con merchants

BEWARE - CON MERCHANTS - outright take money you are legally entitled to and then flatly deny (several times) that is what they are doing. Taking your holiday pay under the guise of rolled up holiday pay (they deny this but essentially that is exactly what they are doing), after repeated denials on the phone to me that they were doing this, it took me threatening to contact the Citizen's Advice Bureau with my pay slips and going to HR for the company I was working for until they finally reimbursed me my legally entitled holiday pay but only after having the nerve to complain to me that I was making THEM look bad to their client! ROLLED UP HOLIDAY PAY is morally wrong and illegal. They know this but knowingly operate under the pretence that if only a small proportion of their work staff challenge them, they are still making a killing financially by essentially picking on the vulnerable in society: people working on low pay, with little work rights until they are taken on permanently by the company they are temping for, to leech off their work staffs legally entitled holiday pay which means should you ever require a day off work, it goes unpaid, because Venn Group see fit to TAKE the money YOU are entitled to, to line THEIR pockets. DO NOT ACCEPT THIS, know your rights, challenge them and take legal advice from the HR company you are working for and then report them to the ombudsman.

Culture

The Culture at Venn Group isn't what I would describe as balanced. It may be a reflection of my working style compared to the company's, I don't believe it was a good match.

Very professional

My main contact person is very polite and professional and always around to answer questions. I got placed on a job quickly. Pay is always on time and rate is very reasonable.

Long hours, little pay

Contracted hours are 8:30 - 18:00, but EXPECTED to work from latest 8am to 18:30 earliest with no overtime. Leaving/arriving "on time" is hugely frowned upon. No actual breaks, expected to eat at the desk. Very "laddish" environment and culture High earning potential if you're willing to sell your soul to the devil

Pays the least out of all agency’s

Venn themselves were ok,when I joined I didn’t contact the office much pay is confusing I received less than I was told and the other £1 was my own holiday pay, bit confusing but basically you don’t get holiday pay if you earn £9 an hour your paying for your own holidays. I was offered £10 an hour but that included holiday pay, not an honest company. Didn’t deliver on pay the job was a disaster but can’t blame Venn for that. I wouldn’t use them again didn’t deliver on pay and we’re dishonest.

Pros

Erm

An enthusiastic work place

An enthusiastic workplace for graduates looking to get their foot in the door of recruitment before moving on to better things. Good unit nights out but the employees are quite cliquey
