“Waste of Time Agency”

Written on: 13/05/2014 by 486Gonzalez (1 review written)

I registered with Best Connection and was promised a full time temp to perm job. This never happened. I was told 3 times to attend an induction for a job and 3 times it was cancelled. One cancellation was only 30mins before I was due to start! After eventually completing the induction myself and several colleagues were told that we would be working 37.5 hours per week so I cancelled another job interview as I presumed I had a job. How wrong was I?! I completed 2 shifts, arrived on time, did as… Read Full Review

“not the best of connection”

Written on: 21/03/2014 by JoelFinn12 (1 review written)

slow finding you work unless its a rubbish job. miscommunications. different people telling you different things. wont put you in for a job that you have seen advertised by them and no explanation as to why not. don't like it if the job you are doing is not suitable for you and you give notice after a few week of sticking with it to find you another placement, they wont, even if you eventually leave the job they still wont find you anything............... you are being punished by them!… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional Discourteous and Immature - Please Avoid!”

Written on: 02/11/2013

I went for an interview organised by then. For various reasons, I realised the job was not for me. As it was too late to call them by the time I got home, I E-Mailed them instead, to notify them of this. Having had no response to this after a week, I E-Mailed them again and still did not hear anything back. I therefore E-Mailed their colleague, to ask if they were on holiday, off sick or still working there, but have still heard nothing back after a few days. It therefore seems clear to me… Read Full Review

“Poor Attitude!”

Written on: 12/08/2013

I accompanied my husband as support to investigate potential driving jobs at Best Connection in Kidderminster. We were greeted by a female staff member with a very 'frosty' welcome (not the receptionist, who I would like to add was very friendly). Unfortunately her tone was extremely unhelpful and almost judgemental. Her only interest was telling us that Best Connections is the leading agency for supplying drivers. I am surprised at this comment if this is first contact of the Kidderminster… Read Full Review

“Disappointed - Best Connection Cannock, Staffordshire.”

Written on: 04/08/2013

I started working in West Sussex for them in 2002 then Birmingham in 2004 and Cannock 2012/early 2013. Cannock has been a disappointment after last years heavy snow. I traveled from Birmingham to Cannock on nights for minimum wage and worked like a slave at the job concerned but it was a wage. One night the snow was really bad and the police closed the only safe route i had due to a few accidents and i called in to say i could not make the shift. The "manager" who was on shift was very direct… Read Full Review

They take advantage of your money you earn by making mistakes on your wages. When you phone you get fobbed off until you say your come to their offices to sort this out face to face.

Again I am employed on a full time although Temp contract with a decent company and although it will always be an agency job, little to no chance of joining the… Read Full Review

“P45 sarga”

Written on: 05/05/2013

this company is very clever in the arts of contracting. I received a P45 after 12 weeks on paye the excuse I recieved had been this was a mistake and asked me to re sign a new contract as self employed. I had received telephone calls from companies requesting to do my contracting and accounts which did feel a bit strange. I then started to dig deeper and asked why they were keen for me to go self employed and they explained that my contract runs out after 12 WEEKS and you have yo go self… Read Full Review
