Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Was pretty poor, kept forgetting to pay me overtime, had to battle with them. Holiday which you earn as you work resets at new year, I lost about a week and they wouldn’t carry it over, meaning you can never take holiday until about June. Poorly run company in all honesty, only good thing is they did get me a job for a while

Pros

Pay was okay when you actually got paid

Cons

Long hours and poor management

They will take you for a complete ride

They will offer you jobs that aren’t suitable and then force pay you umbrella at the lowest rate possible meaning you’re pretty much on minimum wage for the dirtiest jobs

Pros

Can quit when you like

Cons

They keep phoning thinking that there doing you a favour

Let down early

They are a nice company. The company’s they use are huge parcel company’s which are advertised online. They predict to have extra temps to cover strike days but realise that there is not enough work. They will send you home, two weeks before Christmas. Not pleasant.

Driven, fast paced rewarding role.

The day is fast paced which i love. You are pushed to fulfill your tagerts and help is always at hand from management and other team members. It is a very rewarding role!

Not the worst place to be

Good place generally speaking and all the staff are lovely. I feel that the only real area of improvement would be communication between the different recruiters. Also a lack of ongoing work

Cons

Lack of ongoing work

Thank you for your review. We wish you good luck for the future.

Canceled all the time

They book you for work and then they send you text late night or early morning with cancelation. For class 1 pay 12£ flat rate no overtime. Immediately start is just a lie. AVOID !

terrible unproffessionl company

If there was a no star button that would reflect this company better. They sign you up and send you for work that doesnt exist. Leaving you out of pocket for travel then ignore your emails, claim to be busy if you phone or just outright lie saying you will be reimbursed then somebody else says "prove we said we would cover your out of pocket expenses. You may feel desperate for work but signing up with these cowboys will just leave you even worse off. Stay well clear.

Pros

none

Cons

exerything about them

Pros

Very Poor Communication

Went for an interview arranged by Wild Recruitment at great time and expense to myself. I emailed them several times for feedback and they couldn't even be bothered to send me a reply by email.

Pros

None

Cons

Poor Communication

Terrible agency.

You will be blatently lied to,offered work at way below the rate you were promised and then have to put up with the staff sulking.This can and will take the shape of a weeks work lost as you were not on the company list,followed by a shift changes without being told.Temp to perm contract does not seen to exist and be prepared to be replaced by someone younger.They also use an umbrella company which charges you to pay your wages and wild refuses to pay you direct when asked.

Pros

Theres a nice lce cream place near their office

Cons

No proper work, not listened to, arrogant and power crazed staff

Would not suggest to work here

Horrible company to work for, they push all their employees and don't leave a work life balance. Your boss will call you all hours of the night. Horrible place and nasty managers.

Fun, Challenging, Varied and Energetic

Wild Recruitment is a great company to work for and with. The role is challanging and varied making every day different. The team are supportive and a pleasure to work with. I have learned so much and I am continuing to learn more every day. The targets are challenging but achievable. I love the networking, event planning and business development aspect of this role.
