“Contacted by a female from the Bristol branch who said...”

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 (1 review 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

Michael Page are one of the worst recruitment agencies to deal with. They clearly do not believe in building a relationship with clients, neither do they believe in calling back or providing updates to jobs you may be interested in. I have dealt with Michael Page on 3 separate occasions as have friends of mine and their attitude, arrogance and management of expectations is well below par of any company, I have come across.

“Michael Page - Don't Engage!”

Written on: 09/09/2015

Oh dear. I seem to be running with the herd on this one. My experience of Michael Page has been pretty dire. I have more than 10 years' relevant experience in my field, much of it managerial, yet MP insist on sending me roles that are way below my experience level and, to be honest, way below the remuneration that I would expect. (I thought perhaps I was selling myself badly so I've had my CV checked by a number of other HR professionals and recruitment consultants and I know it to be a strong… Read Full Review

“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
