“No personnel or relationship skills!”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by Sheridanqq120 (1 review written)

As a recruiting Manager, I am constantly 'fending off' the agencies despite advertising that I don't want agency contact. I fully appreciate, however, that they have a job to do and therefore always take phone calls and update on our situation in the interest of building long term relationships. The staff at Page personnel have been pushy, patronising and rude. They have done no research into our company or our recruitment needs and think the can sell by putting down their competition. I… Read Full Review

“At last, a recruitment agency that cares!”

Written on: 16/07/2015 by SimoneMcGee365 (1 review written)

I have always been highly sceptical about recruitment agencies, finding them lax, dismissive and focused solely on their corporate clients rather than the candidates. However from the first moment I sent my CV to Michael Page, they proved to be the exception to this rule. I was contacted immediately by a really personable and professional agent who asked me in for a coffee and a chat. She was thorough and attentive, friendly and knowledgeable and for once, had taken the time to really read… Read Full Review

“Perfect Timing for New Job ”

Written on: 12/04/2015

This is the second time a job has been sourced for me and both times they have been the ideal role. I was initially approached for a brand new role which was a fixed term contract and it was great. This has now come to an end and my objectives in the role were well and truly achieved. I contacted the consultant who found me this role she came back to me in a matter of weeks and using her industry knowledge has put me in front of a great employer for a new role which I am about to start and… Read Full Review

“Ever so unprofessional ”

Written on: 02/04/2015

I fwas contacted by a senior recruitment consultant, who was extremely helpful invited me down to their Leeds office to discuss my experiences, I left feeling excited and egar to return for the next stage of the interview, the consultant advised me that he would be getting one of his colleges to call me back to arrange the next meeting. A couple of days later I had a phone conversation with another ' senior recruitment consultant' he was very arrogant, rude he also stated to go find out more… Read Full Review

“Fast, Professional Service ”

Written on: 02/04/2015 by tnHicks148 (1 review written)

Fast, friendly service, complete professional, direct and to the point, loads of suitable vacancies on offer, Couldn't believe how quickly I found my new challenge they really seemed to be able to match my needs to the most suitable vacancies for me, never felt like I was being sent all the latest roles just because they had a keyword in the title and left waiting for a response after an interview? The communication from the consultant I dealt with was fast and accurate and he seemed to… Read Full Review

“Recent placement”

Written on: 10/03/2015 by waynehennessy (1 review written)

I have recently started a new role via Michael Page, and hats off to a seriously committed member of the Michael Page team, who initially contacted me, and then discussed my situation, and followed my requirements to match a role he had for me with one of his clients, this led to my placement into a company I am sure I will stay with. My updates from this individual were great, and as the client seemed to have lots of internal red tape to get through, some of the process was daunting and also a… Read Full Review

I have been to register with Michael Page as i am looking for an entry position in Accountancy and the woman that came to see me got rid of me in 30 seconds telling me that she cannot help me because I don't have recent relevant experience even though i have worked before in Accountancy, a few years ago, and also i have a master degree in Accountancy from Leeds University. She did not want to register me or ask any further questions, all she was saying was :i cant help, why are you looking at… Read Full Review

“Both Client and candidate”

Written on: 21/02/2015 by Atticusm1985 (1 review written)

In the last 2 weeks and have had dealings with Michael Page (in different offices) being a client (as I am a Recruitment Manager) and as candidate applying for a job they had advertised. Firstly, I rang them for assistance with filling a vacancy. The consultant was clearly not interested and kept mentioning that he felt the fees my company had already agreed with them were too low and they would need to re-negotiate. I briefed him on our requirements and was promised a call back to update on… Read Full Review

Michelleblanc's Comment

Written on: 23/02/2015

MP consultants are trained to interrogate candidates on where else they are interviewing. That way they can pursue the 'opening' with candidates of their own. I think they would probably describe it as lead generation..........in reality it's rather akin to the so called 'ambulance chasers' in the legal sector.

“WONDERFUL TEAM AND GREAT EXPERIENCE”

Written on: 05/02/2015 by manunoatay (1 review written)

It was amazing experience interacting with the man I dealt with from Page Executive who took me through the whole process after finding me from Linkedin and offering me a tailor made profile in a firm which i would never have imagined otherwise. The new assignment has solved many of my professional and personal issues which i was facing and was not successful in finding the right fit. Thanks Page Executive for support… Read Full Review

“Miselading”

Written on: 31/01/2015 by Hall196 (1 review written)

Whilst I am not bitter for being turned down positions, I am extremely exhausted with the amount of time I have wasted on this agency. The adverts for positions are very openly sold as needing little experience and sell themselves as being open minded. I have applied for multiple jobs to be told 'you don't have enough experience, call back in a couple of years' despite the position being based largely on a so called open minded hunt for individuals to seek a new job career with room for… Read Full Review

Wish I'd seen this review before I wasted my time. Took the day off work only to be told a load of rubbish. They need to seriously look at the recruitment staff, I think my 15 year old daughter is more educated than them.

Total time wasters - stay clear

“Shocking unprofessionalism ”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by Kathleeno222 (1 review written)

Whilst Page Personnel in Holborn where quick to find work staff members are not experienced or equipped to represent candidates or deal with genuine complaints, criticism or constructive feedback. When making a complaint regarding their online timesheet system I was informed that I was the only candidate who has ever complained suggesting that I was in fact at fault and there must be something wrong with me, not the system. Furthermore I was also informed that they deal with thousands of… Read Full Review

“They seem to be unable to explain vacancies. ”

Written on: 21/12/2014 by Trippj24 (1 review written)

The company ask about you at first - its you they want to know about. They do listen but they ask questions that are invasive where did you interview who with etc. Digging for names which is not relevant sums it up. The questions it leaves you with post conversation linger. Am I a candidate. Why did we not speak about the role in depth at all? Usually the recruiter tells you about the role, the hours, the company, sells it. Not so… Read Full Review

“Excellent Agency”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by Ballkh166 (1 review written)

Michael Page was by far the best recruitment agency that I worked with since becoming redundant some months ago. The communication and support was second to none. Michael Page contacted me through CV library and set up interviews. They gave me helpful tips in the interview process which helped me to get a job. I would recommend Michael Page to any people looking for the right job as well as companies that are trying to fill positions. The people were very friendly and helpful at Michael Page… Read Full Review

Stay well clear of Michael page recruitment. You dont need to be an Einstein, just look at the ratings and percentages of complaints, it says it all. I used these, I'm a fool,they promise you the world. I signed up with this company bad mistake. I am not bitter not getting the position I applied for, I'm bitter through the lack of support and communication I was told I had an interview, date and time to be confirmed, this was 1 week before proposed meeting. I contacted the employer direct as I… Read Full Review

I have the right mind to pick up the phone to the manage in charge and complain at the shicking service I have received to date with this agency in edinburgh. I am unemployed as a result of redundancy with my previoue employer and was initially contacted by someone in the Manchester office and was very keen to speak with me about a position. I sent two emails to arrange a meeting to come to the offices in edinburgh but heard nothing back despite two emails. After That I physically went to the… Read Full Review
