“Aberdeen branch couldn`t give a damn”

Written on: 29/11/2014 by neverforgive (1 review written)

I was unlucky enough to be employed through this outfit for a year or so,and will never put myself through that ever again.Numerous mistakes ,over holiday dates and pay,but no apology.Staff were arrogant and rude.I would recommend this mob to my worst enemy-they deserve each other.Do not touch this lot with a Barge pole(even if it has Dettol on it) I honestly and truly feel for anyone who has had to deal with them ,or is currently having their life stressed out by them.They are on a par with… Read Full Review

“NO PAY - Absolutely terrifying experience”

Written on: 19/11/2014 by waiID (1 review written)

I have been working with blue arrow for a few months and thank goodness it was over.Since the day I started working they have not paid me for the first few months despite following the correct procedure and calling them everyday. It was to the point that the specific person dealing with me was always away from the desk. Despite telling them I have no money to even get petrol to work and almost on the verge of crying,they took no sympathy. I then left the company and it took them further 6months… Read Full Review

Its early on for me and for the first time I haven't been paid. Hopefully these horror stories won't be the case in my case. If they mess me about there's a v simple remedy. I won't work another day for them, check with the end customer who u have been working for and see if a charge for your time has been made. If the company are just sitting on the cash them u can either go legal or visit the branch. My respective branch with be struggling to work without computer equipment within the next week. The police don't get involved with civil matters unless violence is used so eBay might be busy this week ;).

“Worst work experience ”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by Louise_marie (1 review written)

Worked for the agency last year and it was ok. If you couldn't commit to the work they would make you feel guilty and like you have some loyalties to them which you don't hench 'agency worker'. Currently got offered some work and because I had a job interview a very nasty and spiteful recruiter said she would take me off the full books for the following week which I had built up 30 hours which I needed. She then told me she is taking me off the books which I wasn't happy about but spoke to… Read Full Review

Avoid this agency!!!! Invited for an interview 6 weeks ago,aptitude test 3 weeks later,induction day for a job with Yodel 10 days after that.We turned up and sat in a room for 2 hours whilst they sent somebody home for a memory stick to put the manual handling stuff on for us to watch.A 3 minute manual handling/health and safety presentation without sound,shown on a 15" laptop then we were told it could be 2 months til start date. Shifts 9-17.00,17.00-01.00 or 01.00-09.00 paying £6.31ph with no shift enhancements for nights.A complete bunch of amateurs happy to use and abuse.nil points.

“pay problems and lies”

Written on: 02/08/2014 by Bobmc88888bob (1 review written)

If I could I would rate Blue Arrow no stars!! If your looking at blue arrow as your main job, don't!! If you have pay issues or they owe you money, you will have a fight on your hands trying to get this money! I have waited one month for pay I'm due and I keep getting fobbed off and being told it will be in at the end of the week and surprise surprise its not!! I hate being lied to and this is what's happening, rather than just saying there's a problem they treat you with no respect and just… Read Full Review

“Still not been paid.”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by camlad65 (1 review written)

Worked for Blue arrow for a couple of months and on my last job with them i had a minor accident with a delivery van. Blue arrow never paid me the 4 days wages they owed me and they ignore every request i have sent them for my money.I have complained about them to the head office but have had no reply. I would now always advise all my friends and anybody who is thinking of working for them to think again as the Cambridge branch of blue arrow are a rip off and a joke. Think twice people before… Read Full Review

“They Do Not Care”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Adeline477 (1 review written)

Blue Arrow does not care about the way in which agency staff gets treated at bookings. Furthermore, they always state that they 'have the perfect job' for you and that is a bunch of lies. For some bookings,they do not pay workers a sufficient amount of money for what they do. The workers earn a small amount of money, while Blue Arrow reaps the rewards from workers being engaged in meaningless drudgery. Have any of the Blue Arrow recruitment reps ever been engaged in catering work? They do not… Read Full Review
