“Terrible experience”

Written on: 17/02/2017 by alina83 (1 review written)

I dealt with them a few time and certainly will not do that again in the future. Terrible service, very unprofessional people, rude, not responsive. Awful experience overall… Read Full Review

“Overzealous on the sales front...”

Written on: 03/02/2017 by Finchnt274 (1 review written)

I was approached by Page when they found my CV online & after telling them my salary requirements & what I was looking for they said they had a job that would be perfect for me & that it was immediate start. I fell at their demands and rushed to register with their offices, and they told me I would be starting the training the next day (despite missing a few days of the training). I arrived for the training which involved a lot of sitting around, waiting for meeting rooms/computers/staff… Read Full Review

“Obstructive”

Written on: 18/01/2017 by Marvinj142 (1 review written)

Narrow minded attitude, reading from a script and not thinking outside of that. Certainly does not think of their client's needs in an applicant. Rely on personal social media write ups to make a decision on if you are 'allowed' to go forward. Their clients should be aware that this agency is narrowing the options available just because your online profile doesn't match the job description word for word. 'Another planet' comes to mind. Yes their rules are rules and there for a purpose, that I… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional ”

Written on: 11/12/2016 by AnabelHale1973 (1 review written)

Very unhappy with the service provided by the recruitment agent that contacted me from Michael page for a job. That I applied in London. I had the chase after the agent to get any feedback regarding interview or updates and the agent never replied to my email promptly. She was not honest regarding the position I applied to and failed provide me with the necessary information about the job and ignored my questions. I have successfully found a job with another agency now and I would not waste… Read Full Review

“Never been back in touch”

All the contact that I have had with Michael Page has been driven by me, a range of emails and phonecalls speaking to the agents who are very positive on the phone but nothing ever materialises. I'm shocked that anyone gets any employment through them… Read Full Review

“Do not bother!!”

Written on: 12/09/2016 by JimenaMcKnight206 (1 review written)

Appalled by the service MP provide. Had a call from a consultant after registering with them online and was asked to come to the office for a face to face discussion about my next career move, walk through my cv etc. Following the discussion i was sent an example profile and was required to write one for myself as they send these out to clients rather than your cv. Found this a little odd that I had to do this but nevertheless I spent the time to write a compelling profile and emailed it back… Read Full Review

“Want paying?? Don't use Michael Page/Page Personnel”

Written on: 02/09/2016

Absolutely shocking 'service' from Page Personnel, placed in a role which is entirely unsuitable (was told totally different), then once in the role there is no help or support to find something suitable, getting a call back from the recruiter is pretty much impossible and to top things off I've not been paid, despite submitting a timesheet and chasing. Amateurs!!!! Avoid at all costs!!!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Worst agency to deal with in the whole of the UK”

Written on: 31/08/2016 by 55Owens (1 review written)

I had applied for several Project management positions on the indeed website, but I never received a reply nor notification from Page Personnel. When I contacted their offices in St Albans was told someone would get back to me but that was a lie. I went to their website and applied for a position, in the message box, I had put "can someone, anybody contact me". Eventually, someone got back to me and suggested I forward my CV, but surprise, surprise I have not heard back from them and it’s… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2016 by Americal47 (1 review written)

Contacted by a female from the Bristol branch who said she had a potential position and would I be interested. After discussions on the role, my experience and expectation on salary I was promised a job spec. Guess what! That was Tuesday and I'm still waiting! Still waiting despite chasing for the spec on Wednesday! The best part, I've been signed up to receive updates from said organisation and yet no job spec nor courtesy call nor apology for not progressing further! Sad thing is, the… Read Full Review

“Impersonal and lack basic communication!”

Written on: 22/07/2016 by Rollinsoi494 (1 review written)

Having been placed within an organisation that has seen a huge turnover of staff in the very position I was hired for without a clear heads up I was very displeased with the service from my recruiter at the London MP who despite been given clear insight into the situation at my placement even during my placement did not do anything to support me as a candidate. Following this experience that I can only describe as an 'ordeal' my recruiter has failed to keep me interested and open to other… Read Full Review

“Will not respond”

Written on: 28/06/2016 by DanielaNichols (1 review written)

I have given up trying to apply for jobs with this agency. Although I am amply qualified, I have found that not once have I heard back. While this crushes my confidence, I am surprised at just how self destructive this is on the part of the agency. I have often been in the position of needing to recruit staff. Knowing that good candidates may not even be getting a look in will definitely make me think twice about using this agency… Read Full Review

“Atrocious and would stay away from”

Written on: 16/05/2016

I am a non UK citizen and required a visa. I applied through Michael Page and the bad service I received was beyond belief : A) emailed my recruiter 3 times over a few weeks and never got a reply from her. Had to call the office up myself constantly chasing for interview dates with no real results or the phone being picked up by the receptionist but getting no call back B) rudeness from a second recruiter claiming because it's not her client she is unaware and that they are not being… Read Full Review

“Atrocious customer/client service”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by skSmith69 (1 review written)

After applying for a couple of opportunities from this company a week ago they today decided to phone me to inform me that they had moved onto interview stages now and I was too late! Hmm, if you had looked at my application when I sent it perhaps I would have been offered an interview! Lady was rude and not confidence inspiring! As someone who loves Monday's I appreciate that not everyone does, however I do not expect people to place their down mood over onto me and then question why I'm… Read Full Review

“Full of Sales Idiots”

Written on: 15/04/2016 by Mateo1955 (1 review written)

Over the period of 4 months Michael Page had the majority of Marketing roles in my area. I applied for probably 15 that were suitable for my skills and industry experience and another 10 that were different industries but where I could transfer my skills. I did not receive one call to even acknowledge the fact I was in the market for a new job, let alone suitability for a role. After chasing the various people associated with the roles, many of them turned out to be over a month out of date… Read Full Review

“MP staff are impersonal”

Written on: 23/12/2015 by meyerm (2 reviews written)

Michael Page have a habit of treating candidates like a number not an individual person with an individual name. They make you travel to their office to re-register for nothing. They say keep in touch with your agent but you cannot get to speak to your recruitment consultant and they try to rush you off the phone. Some of the consultants are a little stuck up too. I wouldn't recommend this agency to anyone looking for office work… Read Full Review

“Horrific”

Written on: 20/12/2015 by Allison199 (1 review written)

AVOID this recruitment agency at all costs. Consultants have potentially the rudest, most patronising manners anyone could imagine. One consultant asked myself to travel hundreds of miles for an interview and then at the point of asking if I could actually see my potential workplace (close to where I live), they explained that wasn't a possibility and "you can't be assed to travel can you". I was shocked that a company with such a strong name in the industry, employed recruitment consultants… Read Full Review

Kams2016's Comment

Written on: 25/02/2016

I have repeatedly tried to chase my consultant to find out about training opportunities and have never received a response in relation to what I can do to improve my skill set. On one occasion I also tried to contact them to ask for a payrise but never got a response. It seems like the consultants in this organisation they use and persuade candidates to stay in a position for 6 months and get a promotion and don't really care about the individual.

“ Michael Page are one of the worst recruitment...”

Written on: 17/12/2015 by Dallasn106 (1 review written)

Michael Page are one of the worst recruitment agencies to deal with. They clearly do not believe in building a relationship with clients, pushy agents who do not know the job specification and what potential employers are looking for. I have dealt with Michael Page and their attitude, arrogance and management of expectations is well below par of any company, I have come across. If you are looking for a job, I would avoid Michael Page, like the plague… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Service”

Written on: 26/11/2015 by 467Carney (1 review written)

At my initial meeting with the consultant, he listened to my experience to date, roles that I would be interested in and also roles that I would like hime to avoid. Within 2 days of our meeting he had arranged an interview with a large Corporate client. He kept me up to date with the clients feedback and I am happy to say I was succesful and now have a ob I really enjoy. I found Page Personnel & it's consultants throughly professional and a joy to work with… Read Full Review

“Useless agency who just hire anyone”

Written on: 12/11/2015 by Whitaker454 (1 review written)

MP are just like any of the other big recruiters who; 1. Don't reply when you email them 2. Don't call you back when you've left them a message 3. Don't let you know whether you have been accepted/rejected for a role (I get that due to high demand for some roles, they can't always get back to everyone but if THEY'VE called YOU about a role and you agree to have your CV put through, they MUST let you know the outcome) 4. Have a long and useless registration interview process where they simply… Read Full Review

“Extremely frustrated Page Personnel 'Managing Consultant'”

Written on: 09/11/2015 by Driscoll57 (1 review written)

Recently registered with Page in Leicester with a Managing Consultant of Northern persuasion. Came across quite friendly & promise to find my next role. Another agency got me a temp role for a few months two weeks ago. The Page consultant called last week wanting to help me but only if I provided an updated CV (with my current role). Told him will try to update and send over. I'm in no rush to move jobs at present and have lots going on in my life (rather than spend time updating a CV). Today… Read Full Review
