“This is not a recruitment agency ”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by 319Silva (1 review written)

Like I said in the title, this is not a recruitment agency, it is a bad joke. In my contract it was stipulated that I get my payment every week. After a short part time job, I was paid 320 pounds after a month! You finish your job now, you’ll get paid after a month. Very nice! I didn’t get my P45 or my payslip, nothing. My honest advice would be to avoid them… Read Full Review

“Incompetent, disorganized and shambolic.”

Written on: 11/06/2014 by efBird54 (1 review written)

After being hired by a well known museum through Spring Personnel, what seemed to be a fantastic job opportunity soon turned into a complete headache. Spring decided that, because of the bank holiday Monday earlier in the week, that none of the temporary half-term staff would be getting paid, because apparently the payments are processed on the Monday, to be paid on the Friday - Regardless of incoming direct debits and monetary commitments of those waiting for their money. Even a day late would… Read Full Review

“Utterly incompetant bunch!”

Written on: 24/05/2014

Over 3 days, I was contacted twice, regarding supposed temporary jobs about which I had been pestering them constantly since I gave them my CV two months ago. Well, I was overjoyed and immediately reacted positively when asked about the job first time although it meant I was going to take the tube and then change two buses every morning! The next day I got a message saying the employer had not got back to them although they had tried many times, so not to disappoint me, they had found me… Read Full Review

“Utterly incompetent and useless bunch. Having signed...”

Written on: 02/04/2014

Utterly incompetent and useless bunch. Having signed up with Spring Personnel I was quickly sent for a job interview. So far so good. However, when I arrived for my interview, I found out that Spring Personnel had given me the wrong information and the university was actually expecting me to start that day . I had to spend a very awkward 15 minutes explaining to the university’s HR department that , as I was expecting to take part in a 30 minutes interview only, I had other… Read Full Review

“Clients DON'T use SPRING”

Written on: 17/12/2013

I run a medium size firm and have been looking to recruitment. Spring was the second company I contacted and have had a few talks about what they do and what I needed. It seems like they will do anything for money. … Read Full Review

“Complete and uter sham...”

Written on: 08/11/2013

Started with a telephone contact with consultant who wanted to rush me down to the office the next day for interview. They operate in a tiny office and are as far from professional as you can get. I was handed a form covering all details covered on my CV (references, education etc.) and asked for my bank account and NI number (I assume this is all they wanted as she relayed the message that the most important info was this..FACE PALM) from that moment I felt uneasy about the process. I never… Read Full Review

“Total waste of time”

Written on: 11/01/2013

I had a similar experience with Spring. I was looking for temp work and they called me up saying they would have plenty of work for me if I came in to register. Once I got there, they had no record of my appointment but luckily I had a copy of their confirmation email with me. I kept in touch regularly by phone and email to confirm I was available for work, but they were always to busy to speak and no-one ever returned an email. Out of the blue they rang me up nearly 3 months later to say… Read Full Review

“They couldn't care less”

Written on: 08/01/2013 by Grullio68 (1 review written)

I was left really disappointed by my experience with this company. They had been mentioned by a friend as being OK for temp work, so I went to my initial meeting at Spring with high hopes. In the interview process, went over my CV and established the type of work I would like, a fairly easy and quick process. I wasn't interviewed by the person I had previously spoken to on the phone, as promised, and I did think the consultants were a little offhand, but I was still generally optimistic about… Read Full Review

“Awful, awful, AWFUL!”

Written on: 28/11/2012

What a service, or should i say total lack of it. At first they seemed eager to get me into work, after all, it is in thier best interests to do so for everyone involved to make money right? They got me in for registration interview, told me i should have lots of interviews very soon due to my skill set, however something didnt ring true with me, at this stage it was only a gut feeling so an entirely personal thing, they just didnt seem very professional. Went for a job interview very quickly… Read Full Review

I was completely stitched up by this company. They sent me on an interview and gave me plenty of information about the firm and job description etc before I went. But --- it all turned out to be a different job and not even for the same firm. I didn't get the job and the interviewer said it was because I hadn't prepared properly!!! Dohh!!

Complete waste of space. When I spoke to my consultant about this she didn't want to know and said you go to a job interview at your own risk.

“The worst I ever come across( worse than the most...”

Written on: 04/07/2012

Anybody who work for Spring have to keep all the timesheets, payslips, emails and other evidence from them. Request them put every words they promise you in words or record it. They can not get the correct tax code, they refused to pay until the work and pay right legal organisation become involved, they sent an invalid P45, they break their promises most of the time, published corporate head office email addresses do not work at all,they are extremely unreliable and irresponsible. If they do… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/12/2012

Spring were a complete shambles. They sent me on an interview and they gave me information about the firm I was going to etc before hand. But ... they info was about the wrong job and not even for the same company. 3 weeks later I still hadn't heard from Spring (despite calls and emails) about whether I had got the job. Then I had an email saying I had failed the interview because the interviewer said I hadn't prepared properly! I had already explained to the "consultant" at Spring about the mix-up but she just said that it was one of those things, we all make mistakes, and you just go to a job interview at your own risk.

Complete shambles.

“Issues with incorrect tax &NI on P60 tax form - READ...”

Written on: 08/11/2011 by ChocolateCookie (8 reviews written)

I had the pleasure of registering with Spring Personnel Chiswick branch and working various temporary assignments from May 2008 to March 2009. I was sent my P45 in February 2009 and then my P60 for tax year 2008-09 in May 2009 - Great!! I had no issues with my P45, but my P60 .... where do I begin?! After recently receiving a letter from HMRC requesting I send this P60 and others for the proceeding tax years I noticed the P60 issued by Spring Personnel to be very wrong. They only noted the pay… Read Full Review
