“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.”

Written on: 15/12/2014 by Moriah1987 (1 review written)

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

from the initial contact right through the whole interview process the support and advise have made the difference between getting the job or not and i am delighted that the outcome was excellent , I begin my dream job posting in the new year.

“Shocking candidate experience ”

Written on: 29/10/2014 by rdMitchell309 (1 review written)

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

“Appallling no hopers”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Finleyl454 (1 review written)

If you are relying on these people to find you a job you will starve first. Waste your time with a face to face interview and then never contact you for months despite having perfect match jobs which I saw them advertise, thankfully I got one of these same roles with a different recruiter. Don't bother to give them your CV, would have more chance at a job if you pinned it to a lamp post. These guys are just going through the motions and do not take the time to understand your requirements… Read Full Review

“Don't bother!”

Written on: 08/09/2014 by oiDickey310 (1 review written)

Terrible agency. Seemed very helpful after initial meeting - passing my details on to his colleagues working in other industries to maximise my job search. But this is as far as it goes. In there own words i had a great CV and was very employable. Yet all the "oppotunites" they are working on and tell you about never get mentioned again. They don't contact you or follow up on feedback from interviews. They expect you to chase them every few days if you want an update. They don't like if your… 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

“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
