“Rude attitude, don't listen to people”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by Huntlu169 (1 review written)

Worst experience I have had with job agencies. Registered in Tamworth branch. After filled paperwork I have waited for somebody to talk to me more than hour and after interview, when I said I don't want to do cleaning jobs, guess what? They have offered me cleaning job. I have turned it down and they looked at me down, like what do you want? Luckily I have found the job I was looking for, WITHOUT BEST CONNECTION. I just can't believe that recruitment agencies really work like that… Read Full Review

“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

“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
