Although the staff here are ok, most of the time, it seems they can't be arsed to help you find employment unless you work where they want you to work. They seem quite petty. I have seen a few jobs advertised on their site, inquired about them then been told that the jobs aren't available even though I applied on the day they are advertised.
Pros
None
Cons
Lazy staff

Stay away from this agency.They promise work one week in advance just because they want to keep you busy meanwhile you refuse other good jobs. Lot of jobs cancelled.A lots of lies.They are not correct with paying.Pay rate changed without let you know ,less money, deductions from your wages without reason.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Avoid

Workign for a year, the people who are suppose to help you with your job don't. they also arent consistent with raising hourly pay or telling you about possible holiday pay. will text every day to make sure you're in, but will ignore any concerns or questions you have. will forget when you've booked holiday and fail to tell the company then lie about not telling them you wont be in. seems like they have no idea how to manage people.
Pros
none
Cons
they dont care, cant organise themselves, forget things, inconsistent pay rises

Ive not worked for this agency however , ive applied for 20+ jobs in the nottingham/derby area i never heard nothing from them for the jobs i applied for and then they get there backs up when i will not go work in a production warehouse for ÂŁ7 an hour . When i finally had a miss call and i rang back they put the phone down on me ! They are very arrogant and rude for somebody who just sits behind a telephone all day

I did plenty of work for them I was never late and did overtime for them to say "I could have got you in there ongoing but not a problem" after cancelling 1 shift to have my family dog put to sleep. A little compassion could help rather than being treated like your easy replacable.

They'll treat you like you are their slave and a 5 year old person without life. They'll cancel shift after booking with 1 week in advance, they'll reduce your wages whenever they like for any reason that they find reasonable like "it's January" when you didn't even have a rise because it was December.... They'll ask for 2.5 % of your total wages as invoicing expenses minminimum7.5ÂŁaweek. Just a dream of an agency...
Pros
After thinking for 2 minutes, none
Cons
Too many

I enjoyed some of their services in the area of workforce, payment consistency and proper planning of your jobs and availability. But had issues when it comes to requesting for Employment Declaration Letters and Contract for official documentations
Pros
No free Lunches
Cons
You can enjoy long hours but optional

The rates these guys pay to HGV drivers are an absolute insult. So you do everything needed to keep your licenses in check, CPC and medicals etc, then they have the nerve to offer you rates of £10-11 an hour lol....come on guys!!, show some respect to drivers for once, without us the country would grind to a halt....it’s about time agencies like this were taught a harsh lesson!!

Registered online easy process, promised work ongoing available and never happens. Always advertising for jobs so apply on site to be told there not really there. Get told hourly rate from johnathan then paid a lower one once work completed. Removing myself from there website. Just typical agency

A company that won’t pay there workers no respect to drivers, cowboy company’s these days I would recommend you appoint a union if you work as a driver. Sending them to tribunal for pay that sums up what your going into.if your a new driver don’t sign up your walking into disaster. Why you have no face to face interaction sums up what they think of you. disgusted

Not enough work to start with and when the job is done they won’t pay properly. I got 1 job in 2 months and didn’t got paid the right amount. They change their rules anytime they want online and force workers to adhere to it. They have drop down menus on their site with only one option. Seriously, I wouldn’t recommend anybody to waste time with this agency.

Do not do not do not apply here or start work.they say something else do something else.promise different hours and wage and end up giving different.keep you stranded with false promises of work so you dont go anywhere else.send you to work once in week or two and for that too pay less hours than you have actually worked and will not rectify it.
