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

“WHAT A BUNCH OF INCOMPETENT PEOPLE”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by ThaddeusWatkins (1 review written)

Worked for this shower for 2 years, never again will i use an agency. They continually lied to you, would not stop ringing you if you were on the sick for 1 day, wages wrong, holiday pay incorrect, shift pay incorrect. They say work wear is free of charge this is not true your pay for all your uniforms and boots. When the firm your contracted to are looking to lay staff off, blue arrow make up all sorts of offences just so that you can get the bullet. do not trust these parasites they are here… 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

“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 11/02/2014

Missing wage slips, missing wages, takes weeks to sort out, numerous telephone calls and emails, think yourself lucky if you end up getting it sorted out, still waiting. Pay just above minimum wage and treat staff like they couldn't care less. If you are on benefits stay on them as at least you get paid regularly. Every holiday they mess wages up. They are a total disgrace. In the hint box it says 'Think about what you liked and didn't like about it'. I have nothing good to say about them… Read Full Review

“Blue Arrow, Simply The Best”

Written on: 04/01/2014

I could not wish for better service. Every time I have a query it is dealt with promptly and I never have cause for complaint. I have been found placements in record speed, and the rates of pay and holidays which have been negotiated are far far better than any other agencies I have been with. I would not move to another agency after using Blue Arrow. The staff are so friendly and pleasant, and nothing is too much trouble. I really feel valued with these guys. I can't think of anything to… Read Full Review

Cant really say ive had a bad experience. Been with the company 4 years almost and the team are great, detailed assignments on what your doing. If theres a problem they go out of their way to fix it for you. always have work for myself. They treat you with respect and give you credit where its due.they keep you updated with whats going on in the company via email. To be honest they team that consult with me has never made me feel more welcome and made my employment enjoyable. Hopefully i'll be… Read Full Review
