“Everytime you call theres always huffing and puffing...”

Written on: 22/06/2015

Everytime you call theres always huffing and puffing like you are somehow burdening them. These women need to get off their high horses and realise they get paid to answer the damn phone.For a recruitment agency they are absolutely a million percent rubbish at customer service! Iv been contacted about jobs and then never heard from them again and the one time i didnt turn up to a job because of personal reasons the woman told me i let them down and cut me off. Well i am glad i didnt turn up and… Read Full Review

“Poor service agncy”

Written on: 09/06/2015 by xjMcKee270 (1 review written)

Forever messing up my pay. Complicating my holiday request forms. Cancelling me last minute dot com. Too many chiefs in the office not enough Indians on the shop floor. Cocky staff thinking they know everything. I feel sorry for the competent staff members there having to put up with the idiots. Very tempted to join another agency to get away from these clowns tbh. Nightmare company with a lot of bad press and lots of drivers slating them who have since got full time employment via opting to… Read Full Review

“the worst connection”

Written on: 15/05/2015 by Ashleyx419 (1 review written)

They have ' a do not care' attitude towards customers, treated them as fools. Promise to find a job and when calling they always have nothing. And if they finally find something (wow) the next day call saying there was a mistake or send you somewhere( in my case it should be a warehouse) where they even do not build it yet. Worst agency ever… Read Full Review

Registered with best connection in Northampton as a driver I worked for two weeks and was expecting to receive my first weeks pay into my account on the Friday.

“Worst employment agency ever”

Written on: 18/03/2015 by Sashat90 (1 review written)

Jobs do not exist. Staff unprofessional I sat waiting while my husband was being interviewed with them. Staff we're watching racing on TV all I could hear was swearing the f word constantly. I was waiting an hour they continually made each other coffees and totally ignored the fact I was sat listening to it all. My husband signed up with them as they were advertising a job he was skilled for. When he asked about the vacancy he was told the person dealing with it was not available but they… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2015 by Christian118 (1 review written)

I asked for 2 weeks holiday.They rung up, spoke to me and my mum and said I couldn't have the first week but I could have the 2nd week. I worked the first week then on the following Monday they rung up and said get to work, they said I never asked for holiday. They said nobody in the office had rung me. They even spoke to my mum!! They said if I didn't go to work I'd be sacked, so I quit as no choice. As a temp agency they could have asked someone else to cover my holiday but instead I had to… Read Full Review

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
