“THEY ARE NOT SERIOUS”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by misskitten (1 review written)

After 63 days they called me for a phone interwiew and we set up a date for a phone interwiew. They did not call me. Totally unprofessional… Read Full Review

“Incredibly Unprofessional”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by English390 (1 review written)

I am a university graduate currently seeking a job in the world of Public Policy. I have been using a senior consultant in the central London office from Michael Page in the hope of starting my career. In summary, his lack of professionalism was startling, not only from failing to appear pro-active, but also from being incredibly invasive of my privacy while making provocative statements about my personal life. When originally using Michael Page, promises were made about many upcoming job… Read Full Review

“No follow up after told job was in the bag”

Written on: 18/07/2014

After attending an interview at their offices and told they had multiple positions with multiple execs. Went to two interviews with the same company and was told by Michael Page the role was mine before I went in bar a minor catastrophe. Had to chase them for three days and then got the answer saying HR had a query with one of my points and they would get a full briefing the following week. Haven't heard anything after numerous calls and an email. Don't know why companies pay their. This could… Read Full Review

“Indifferent dismissive consultants”

Written on: 05/07/2014

A few years ago I applied for an accountancy position with advertised by the Manchester office. Even though I had the necessary qualifications and experience, he steadfastly refused to put me forward. Some time later when I called him, he bizarrely pretended to have received an urgent call on another line. His arrogance and attitude were breathtaking. Don't deal with them unless you're prepared to be treated like dirt!… Read Full Review

“Undependable Recruiter”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by BritneySheehan1966 (1 review written)

I completed an on-line application for a Buyer Position in Andover, MA. The recruiter from Michael Page called me. We set up a phone interview for Tuesday at 2:00 PM. She was supposed to call me. At 2:15 PM I emailed her and she said she was tied up in a training class. We scheduled the interview for the following day at 2:00 PM. She never called or emailed me until I emailed her at 3:15 telling her that I would work with someone else more dependable. She then called me on my cell phone… Read Full Review

“You won't get hired”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by RudyMorse (1 review written)

If this lot are a recruitment agency, then I might as well call myself one. They are amateurs. They have no knowledge of the industry. They are disorganised. They are useless. My experience is with both Michael Page and Page Personnel. I have no idea what they're motivation is, but getting someone a job that fits their skills certainly isn't. What's worse is that they put you forward for a role, you attend an interview, and you don't hear anything back from them. That is the most unprofessional… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional ”

Written on: 11/05/2014 by Anon3214 (1 review written)

A recruitment consultant from this agency contacted me. He talked on the phone about how he could approach companies and he had amazing connections in the industry, blah blah. All sounded great. Then after putting me forward for a few roles, he disappears on holiday for a few weeks. Interview offers start coming in and so I'm being a passed around all his colleagues, none of whome know the history I my applications, faffing about, 3-4 phone calls a day (while I'm at work). An absolute… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 23/04/2014 by tsBates276 (1 review written)

The worst agency I have ever come across. You are interviewed by individuals who have no industry experience. Jobs are often fictitious & if you do apply like as not you won't be contacted. I have phoned many times to speak to one particular person in the Facilities Management division, he never bothers to return your call. Avoid like the plague, the most horrendous experience I've ever with an agency… Read Full Review

“I'm sorry to say”

Written on: 10/04/2014 by Crawford343 (1 review written)

I totally agree with those who DO NOT recommend this agency. I'm of the opinion that the very few positive reviews were written by Michael Page staff members themselves because they are inexplicable otherwise. I've found them to be hopeless in every respect. In fact I think they are probably harmful to any 'application' you make through them as if the job exists and they represent you at all it will undoubtedly be a misrepresentation. Most of their phone calls are thinly disguised fishing… Read Full Review

“Terrible is an understatement”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by Javiont46 (1 review written)

Unprofessional, treat one like an animal, goes through 3 rounds of interview does not even tell one whether your application is successful or not. What so difficult to let the applicant know the result. Avoid this company like the plague… Read Full Review

“Very helpful”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by Hollis278 (1 review written)

I applied for a number of marketing roles through Michael Page and found them to be very helpful. The consultant I was dealing with was always available to get in touch with and sent me a number of relevant roles. It wasn't long before I was offered a job, which I accepted. All in all I was pleased with my experience and would definitely recommend to a friend… Read Full Review

“More than satisfied”

Written on: 20/03/2014

I got my current job through Michael Page in London and I have no complaints. Perhaps some of the jobs suggested by them previously weren't appropriate but that appears to be part of the process. If they think they can place you, they’ll give you all the help you need. … Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague”

Written on: 29/01/2014

Took a job through thme at a pay cut and my point of contact was talking like she was the best at what she did when she had only been there for a few months and tried telling me how contracting works when id been doing contracting for a decade. I took the job despite the terrible pay level and no holiday etc as i was on a time scale and had to think about my family so having the money coming in was important to me. To start she was good but once i was tied to there contract things changed… Read Full Review

“RUDE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!”

Written on: 16/01/2014

Same thing happened to me! I have a university degree in Business and over 3 years in sales and marketing. I applied for a job where I would be taking a cut in pay ( as the advert seemed to be just what I was looking for). The guy who called me was so rude and patronising. Never experience service like it! He told me he could not imagine any employer hiring me with my sort of experience however 'his team' would consider taking me on as a trainee for sales and business management (how… Read Full Review

“Hit a brick wall”

Written on: 18/12/2013

I had a meeting booked, this was cancelled due to illness and I was promised a call back. The call did not happen and when speaking to them, I was told that it could be for different reasons and that it was not urgent. Nice to know when you are out of work and looking for a job, that it is not urgent to them (Hope it is not urgent for the employer as well!!!). So now I have to wait for a call that may or may not happen, and they do not appear to look after each others case loads if they are… Read Full Review

“Nothing short of shambolic.”

Written on: 13/12/2013

This is the worst recruitment agency I have ever had the misfortune of encountering. I applied for a job that was advertised on their website, which I thought I met the criteria for pretty well. After applying, I was soon invited to come in for an interview, which I duly attended. All went well, I was told I would be put forward for the job as the consultant thought I was a good candidate. Nearly a month on and I haven't heard a jot, nothing, despite being told they would be in contact. I have… Read Full Review

“Worst UK Recruitment Agency?”

Written on: 02/12/2013

Absolutely disgusted at the level of no-service. Seeing an advert for the position of Head of eCommerce for a large well-known UK based brand, it ticked all the boxes from my POV and I knew I likewise had years of experience in this field and potentially of interest for the business in question. UNFORTUNATELY, after calling Michael Page recruitment company once a day for 5 days in a row, I was never able to have a conversation with the correct person. Now, either my contact details were not… Read Full Review

“One star is too much”

Written on: 29/11/2013

Appalling service. My experience of them has led me to believe that they really have no clue about the area that they are recruiting for or any understanding of transferable skills/ experience within that industry. I wonder whether some posts advertised are real or just intended to generate CVs. Recruiters come across as inexperienced and disinterested. Other agencies present as more trustworthy and professional… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time.”

Written on: 28/11/2013

I've had the misfortune of applying for two jobs advertised through this agency on Reed and can safely say they are the worst company of it's sort I've ever dealt with. Both times I had a call from a chap called "Kit" who obviously hadn't read my CV, but still asked me questions which bore no relevance to the jobs in question. The first time I told him I wasn't prepared to do nights, but he still rang me with 2 jobs which required nights. The second job, he acted as if he didn't know who I was… Read Full Review
