“Disgusting customer service”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by Reevesmw1981 (1 review written)

I moved to Stirling 7 months ago, and signed up with Office Angels the first chance I had. In the first 6 months I had one lead with them, for what was sold as an admin role, but was actually a sales role. So having been missold the job ot led to a cringeworthy interview in which myself and the interviewer decided there had been a breakdown in communication at some point. Not detered I recently applied for anuther job, and was successful. One week before the start date, and I had no idea what… Read Full Review

“Great company”

I went to Office Angels looking for temp work to supplement teaching and they rang regularly with numerous positions. I am now happily in a temp position with a law firm. Thank you Office Angels :-)… Read Full Review

“The worst”

Written on: 06/11/2015 by CobyCoyne187 (1 review written)

I don't know how they are still in business! I swear they use fake job adverts just to get people on their books and only really have low level temp roles! They waste your time and deliver nothing, at all! Don't bother even going in to meet with them. Avoid at all cost… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE”

Written on: 15/10/2015 by OliveMacKenzie53 (1 review written)

They had no clue about my experience what so ever. When I specifically came in for permanent full time work, they only offered temp work. Did not listen at all to what I was looking for and left me standing around in reception for half an hour. Very bad and I have used many recruitment agencies… Read Full Review

“Pleasant in office interview, but then no feedback/job.”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by bouncer45 (15 reviews written)

Pleasant interviewers at their office, but afterwards no contact or job offers. No feedback, in fact I think i was totally forgotten about after I spent a hour with them registering. Not going back, that's for sure! Do recruitment agencies not realize that it costs the candidates hard money to get to them and register only for it to be a wasted journey, as then they don't offer us anything!! Hard to see many pluses with Office Angels, yet i note they somehow seem to keep going! … Read Full Review

“Shockingly unprofessional!”

Written on: 10/08/2015 by Caele290 (1 review written)

Office Angels in Central London. Having spoken to the consultant on the phone after applying for a job, I was asked to attend the office this morning to supply my passport and register. Having arrived (obviously on time!) I ended up in an empty OA reception area. Stood around for 5 minutes and noticed a sign asking to call an extension if the Reception isn't attended. Fair enough...called it...4 times.... but no answer. After 10 minutes the receptionist returned (having openly been gossiping… Read Full Review

“Bullies!”

Written on: 29/07/2015 by KamronMcLaughlin246 (1 review written)

Let me just start that I suffer from anxiety and depression and these people at office Angels made it much worse! I found a receptionist role on a job advertising website. One of their consultants called me the next morning and wanted me to come in to do paperwork and such. The meeting went great, everyone was so nice! I had high hopes! About 3 weeks later, I was contacted regarding a temp role. It was starting the next day. I was a bit nervous as I had zero time to prepare but I accepted… Read Full Review

“Taunton Office is Useless”

Written on: 23/07/2015 by Jeramiah410 (1 review written)

I've been back job hunting lately and have been in contact with the Taunton office on a couple occasions regarding potential jobs - what a bloody waste of time though. The girls do not care at all they're patronising, rude and only seem to care about railroading people into jobs they don't even want - probably to keep their numbers looking good. Wish I could name and shame. I explained I wanted to change into a different type of role and still earn and similar salary and all they do is keep… Read Full Review

“Croydon branch. Liars.”

Written on: 04/07/2015 by 262Monaghan (1 review written)

Stay away. They will get you in, get you to sign your life away and deliver nothing. I applied for a few positions they had advertised, didn't get submitted for any of them. Went in, had a delightful chat with a consultant, to be told I wasn't good enough for anything they had and my only option would be to temp. Through my sheer desperation I agreed. Any job is better than none. After a couple of weeks and assurances that wonderful jobs were being lined up, I had an interview with a… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service - Office Angels”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by 1962Wren (1 review written)

Saw a role on a website managed by Office Angels. I had initially applied but didn't hear back - they do say in their automated message that if you have not been contacted in 5 days, then you are not short-listed. I was not short-listed. Fair enough. However, the same job was advertised a week later, again managed by Office Angels with a later closing date. I decided to call the local office that was managing this vacancy. I re-read the job spec and had originally applied as I could tick… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2015

Have to agree with this comment completely. Not sure how Office Angels operate to be honest as they never return your alls like they say they will or submit your cv for any jobs even if you tick all the boxes and have experience etc.

I have only approached them twice as unfortunately the jobs I wanted to apply for had been advertised through them but I certainly wouldn't waste my time again !

“Don't bother”

Written on: 15/05/2015 by 186Price (1 review written)

A lot of jobs I have applied for I'd have been perfect for. However, I think these are fake roles advertised just to get CV's on the database, and they have no intention of calling you up. You end up feeling stupid and unappreciated. I had to register twice with the same branch then did a CRB check which they didn't pay for - and never got a job with them ever. Not even an interview or a phone call about potential work. Never had a call back for all the jobs I've applied for, just in case this… Read Full Review

“terrible service, employees failed to attend work”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Easton1945 (1 review written)

Employees failed to attend work, taking the office keys. Office Angels in Northampton is the worst agency ever. Begore going on my holidays i hired two employees to cover while I was away. The girl that was responsible for opening the office while I was away failed to attend work for all that week and took the office keys. I had the most stressful holiday. Office angels had no information about it and didn't return the keys until 5 hours later, leaving my other employees with no access to the… Read Full Review

“Taunton (again)...”

Written on: 13/04/2015

Had not registered with them, but they found my CV online. Placed in temp post without them seeing me or interviewing me! (Paperwork completed by email). Beware of Travel Wings... make sure you never get a tax rebate in your pay (get HMRC to send you a cheque) or you won't get your travel and subsistence. Errors are not uncommon and it's like pulling teeth to get anything resolved. Six weeks after finishing with them (after 5 months in post) am still chasing money owed through this scheme… Read Full Review

“Taunton again !”

Written on: 19/03/2015

Reply to the posting dated 15th February. To the person I dealt with , think yourself very lucky that that you ended up not going through this agency. My CV was on line and I got a call from them suggesting I temp with them. I started a role 2nd Nov towards a deadline for the company 16th December. A couple of days I worked 10 and 11 hours. The contract finished 2nd Feb, so I then asked for my holiday pay. It seems you have to claim it in that year. It may have been on the contract, but… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2015 by Dillano1994 (1 review written)

I applied for the position of Administrator via cv-library. Same day I received a call from Harrow office asking me to pop into their office next day for registration. Same day they sent me tests to be completed till next day. They were very friendly in the office. To sum up, they are really supportive and friendly, make you feel confident before your interviews and after. They are very fast in responding. I am really glad I have delt with this agency. I got the position I applied for… Read Full Review
