“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

“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

“Found the position almost immediately”

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

I went to the city branch just off fenchurch street to met with a "consultant" As soon as arrived i knew this was going to be awful. my consultant made rude patronising comments throughout our meeting and grilled me. I am plenty qualified for the job roles that am I applying for, yet was made to feel that I wasn't. Dreadful place stay well clear. I will never go back . They are just after there commission and to make them feel important… Read Full Review

“Taunton-dont bother!”

Written on: 15/02/2015 by AryannaO'Connell (1 review written)

Absolutely the worst service I have ever encountered. They advertised a vacancy which I was very interested in. I phoned them 6 times, left messages, emailed over my CV to the specified person and heard absolutely nothing back. Each time I phoned and asked to speak to the specified person I was told they were in a meeting and they would leave a message for her to call me back- not once was I contacted. I emailed my CV over as requested and still had no acknowledgement. Nobody else at the… Read Full Review

Bbcscot's Comment

Written on: 21/05/2015

Thanks for the review - I reviewed too. First time I had ever contacted them - rude and obnoxious are two words that spring to mind. Thank goodness for this review site. The branch I am referring to is in Glasgow. Endemic. For a business that deals in people, strange 1/4 would recommend them. How poor is that?

“Never heard back from”

Written on: 22/01/2015 by vrKing37 (1 review written)

I registered with the Holborn branch. The consultant was very friendly and promised to send over my CV to a job she was recruiting for. She said "you are such a great candidate and I don't want to lose you." So I went to the first interview and she called me back straight away to say they loved me. Okay great. So off I went for second interview, I spoke to her after the interview and and she said she would get back to me later that day with feedback. NOTHING. I emailed. No reply. I rang and… Read Full Review

“Very happy with the service and my new job!”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by ColeHarding (1 review written)

When I was made redundant in August, I rang 3 agencies to look for work. Office Angels were the only agency that made me feel comfortable that I wouldn't be out of work for long. They were the only agency who contacted me with new jobs regularly and seem to work with the best companies in the local area. I have now been temping for the Office Angels branch in Ashford for 3 months and just been offered a new permanent role with another company through Office Angels. I would definitely… Read Full Review

I had so many problems during the time I worked with the agency: - they got my tax code wrong putting me on basic tax even though I had had no previous earnings in that tax year and no other income - they got my bank details wrong and paid my first few weeks' wages into the someone else's account - on my first assignment they rang me late on a Friday, the assignment to start on that next working day and promised to email me all of the details of the assignment, however, forgot so I had to… Read Full Review
