“More like Broken Arrow!”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by Bragg166 (1 review written)

I was tuped across to Blue Arrow in January. When the company was awarded the contract everybody seemed fairly optimistic about the future with Blue Arrow. I have worked in my current job for around 8 years with another agency. They werent the best company to work for but ultimatley if they messed up with wages, time off or anything else theyd do what they could to ammend the problem. Just under 5 months into my employment with this shower of clowns my wages have been wrong to the tune of… Read Full Review

“Brighton Branch reduced me to tears!”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by palominopony (1 review written)

This is the worst agency I have ever dealt with. They seem to be incapable of keeping accurate records and then blame you when things are not correct. Dealt with two account managers the first of whom was friendly, the second was possibly the rudest human being I have ever met and actually reduced me to tears over the phone. Pay was never on time. A joke… Read Full Review

They don't pay you on time. They delayed one of my payments of £400 for up to a month. They end your contract without any notice. I would say use this agency as a last resort. All you are to them is just another ran number on there system… Read Full Review

Contacted by an agent for a 1 month temporary telephone admin role. Informed them at the time of first contact that I would need two days off within the first two weeks to attend interviews for permanent jobs. They said they would confirm that it was ok with the employer. After working in the role for a week and informing the employer that I needed time off for an interview; was told blue arrow had made no attempt to contact them regarding the issue, and that I would not be allowed to attend… Read Full Review

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
