“Not interested”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by Schultz353 (1 review written)

I was unfortunately employed for seven months and at the end was threatened by a customer. Agency made me feel in the wrong. They made me feel small and negotiated so I did nothing but filing. A week later I get notice to leave. Even though I no longer am an employee of Adecco they try to harass and threaten if you dare to keep in touch with the friends you have made. Avoid them at all costs… Read Full Review

“Adecco Stole my Money”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by coMcMahan247 (1 review written)

Adecco were an absolute nightmare during my time with them. They were supposed to send timesheets and payslips to me but they have not done so and repeated requests for them have been ignored. The company that I was working for have paid Adecco, but Adecco have kept the money for themselves without paying me, which means that I am owed over £5000 from Adecco. Based on my experience, under no circumstances should anybody every consider working through this company as I have been chasing this… Read Full Review

“Want a bunch of useless money grabbing people.”

Written on: 10/08/2014 by steelfixer12 (1 review written)

It is my misfortune to have been working for Adecco for the past few months now. Every week my pay is wrong. I have given written instructions for them not to deduct their travel scheme from my wages and every week they do just that. I work at an Engineering company here in Ipswich along with several other Adecco employees. I thought I was a unique case until I started talking to the other people and it turns out they are doing it to everyone. One poor guy here has been working for them for two… Read Full Review

“Did get a perm job however poor service and communication”

Written on: 17/07/2014

I have to admit I did get a job through Adecco which went permenant, that said it was a relief not to deal with them anymore. Poor communication, many emails went unanswered. Emailed me late one night and told me of an interview the next morning, I responded and then nothing... turned up to the place of the interview (hadn't been given a time) and repeatedly rang Adecco to find out a time (i was just told early morning), and my contact was unavaliable. Spent whole day waiting, noone would speak… Read Full Review

“Adecco - Poor Service”

Written on: 09/07/2014

Finished my first year at University and came back to Sheffield - signed up with Adecco - asked for any type of work and was promised (note: promised) immediately that I would be provided with a wide range of opportunities that would see me fully engaged in work throughout the summer. They were even offering multiple opportunities to make up 37 hours per week. 5 weeks into my summer break - not one single offer from Adecco. I call, no one is there to answer my query. I leave a message, no… Read Full Review

“not welcoming”

I felt I was judged as soon as I walked through the door, I was not a young person, with beautiful looks. My 30 years experience in the Administration field meant nothing. To top it all off, given a useless email address to send cv....avoid!… Read Full Review

“Refuse to tell you anything D:”

Written on: 11/06/2014

Applying for a job I asked the location, like just the street, so i know if it's possible for me to get there. I asked what the job would entail, to know if it was suited to me. I asked the name of the job's Company. And several other very simple common questions you would ask about a job. I was REFUSED ALL this information! He just kept saying "I'm not able to say" just repeating "it's company policy to not tell anyone". So, Adecco expect you to dive in, blind, give them all your… Read Full Review

“No experience so no hope for you”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by AlexiaMassey301 (1 review written)

Just rang Adecco and said I was looking for work and would like to email my CV over. I chose to use Adecco as they recruit across four key industry sectors, one of them being office, admin support and secretarial which I am interested in. Their website stated that they "cater for all job levels within those sectors". However, the response I received when I rang didn't match up with what was stated on their website. She asked me what experience I have and I said that I had no paid employment… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed with quality of staff”

Written on: 28/04/2014 by Sameasry (1 review written)

I found temporary work through the Bury St Edmunds Adecco branch, working at Bosch in Stowmarket. Very friendly and polite to begin with, but me and fellow employees were told the wrong start times, informed we would work certain hours only to find that the managers at Bosch had no idea what we were talking about. I had a day off ill, perhaps caused by running myself ragged in the equally poor Bosch, and was told not to come in anymore. I was given another job with Bosch, again told different… Read Full Review

“Inept Uncaring Frustrating and Underhand”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by EvaShoemaker439 (1 review written)

Elusive via email and often force me to track my "handler" down by telephone. Even when I do speak with them, they dont follow up in actions what we've agreed on the phone. Found that they were't interested in finding me a placement once I'd signed up with them. I had to force them to allow me to interview with them in person - they kept diverting me to do it all online. I had to force them to put me forward for the placement I was awarded - by applying on all websites I saw the post… Read Full Review

“Probably the worst agency I've ever temped for”

Written on: 31/01/2014

Adecco were all to quick to sign me up, and offer out their 'many jobs'. I ended up in a temp role (which she told me nothing about). Every week i had to fight Adecco for my weekly pay (which is still on going). The agency really don't seem to care about their candidates, and just want to make money for themselves. I would highly recommend staying away from them. Absolutely useless… Read Full Review

“Useless, pathetic, annoying, the list goes on, how...”

Written on: 23/12/2013 by Inferno52 (2 reviews written)

Useless, pathetic, annoying, the list goes on, how this agency is still running I don't know? I registered with these IDIOTS back in 2005 and like Office Angels, blatant idiot time wasters offering you no calls, emails and so on. All they give you is fancy talk that doesn't go anywhere but make you think that you you're in for something worthwhile but end up making want to punch them for wasting time. I really hope they get shut down!!! … Read Full Review

“Stiffed out of Notice Pay ”

Written on: 17/12/2013

I had an assignment cancelled suddenly after 1 week. The assignment was for 2 months. They cancelled it 2 weeks before christmas and have'nt bothered to offer any further work. The main problem is their poor attitude, lies about certain terms of the contract & refusal to pay in lieu of notice. A disgrace to the proffession. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!… Read Full Review

“Friendly and Efficient ”

I have been with adecco since i came out of uni in 2011, i have read the reviews and i cant speak for the other branches but the warrington branch seem to be miles ahead of the other brances. They called me in for a chat and an interview! shortly after they found me a job with the skills i have. now a few months into this job i noticed signs of the company going into liquidation (managers and staff getting paid incorrectly) so i made adecco aware of this and they found me a job closer to home… Read Full Review

“Absolutely disgusting service”

Written on: 19/11/2013 by Greatjobnow (1 review written)

After reading most of the reviews it sounds exactly like people are describing the Lancaster branch of this extremely unprofessional agency. I can honestly say I was disgusted with the service the branch offered in particular a woman! Full of promise until she found out a rival agency had also contacted me about a position she had put me forward for, then out came the lies and excuses, not returning calls as promised. It became obvious that it was all just a game to her and all she cared about… Read Full Review

“Appalling Service. ”

Written on: 17/11/2013

Absolutely disgusted. The first time I have used Adecco, and I am wholey disappointed. After applying for a job they had advertised that would have been perfect for me, they call me in for an induction into their company and then at the end of the induction proceed to tell me they have given the job to other people. If they had of told me this in the first instance, I would not have gone to the induction. I then had a phone call to do a temp job for the weekend, the email i recieved was very… Read Full Review

“Terrible - Never Again!!!”

Written on: 15/11/2013

Hired a temp driver for a one off delivery. He took the company van and did his personal shopping, parked in breach of traffic laws, smashed the van and denied any knowlodge of it. Spoke to Adecco and their response is "you have your own fleet insurance & accidents happen' they couldn't even tell me if the driver had points on his license (apparently they only supply drivers without points/convictions if you request it). They even intended to charge us for his hours including his shopping time… Read Full Review
