“Unprofessional and embarrassing ”

Written on: 28/03/2016 by AshleeBeasley1953 (1 review written)

I recently contacted the Aberdeen office and wasn't acknowledged after sending in my resume to a poor untrained unprofessional. Need less to say I will not entertain these armatures again and advise strongly to avoid these unprofessionals. Shocking treatment and will ensure this experience is passed on throughout the industry. Go back to your high street tack ticks as you have no place in the professional market place… Read Full Review

“Dreadful company”

Written on: 27/02/2016 by McConnell257 (1 review written)

Not surprised at all with all these negative comments. I wish Employers knew how their candidates are treated. I have seen interesting positions but will not apply if the job is advertised through Office Angels… Read Full Review

Same here. I keep seeing really good admin jobs on various jobboards but I will deal with this agency again. I registered with them years ago and they sent me on a dreadful interview and failed to give me enough information about the position.
I never got any temp work through them, yet every time I am searching for a job, Office angels pops up everywhere. I think most of the jobs they are advertising are fake and they are trying to look busier than they really are.
They treat their candidates like a number, not a person. That was my experience anyway.

“My terrible experience with Office Angels”

Written on: 22/02/2016 by Gentry177 (1 review written)

I applied for a job on the Office Angels website after being told they are the best in the business for the type of job I was looking for. I was very excited to receive a phone call from them saying they would like to register me. I took half a days holiday at my current job to go to the City branch office. Upon arriving I was told that no permanent consultants were available to see me so I would be interviews by a temp consultant. Instantly, this rang alarm bells (looks very unprofessional!)… Read Full Review

“Don't trust them!”

Written on: 13/02/2016 by Kamari381 (1 review written)

Signed up with them last year and got a temp job the next day which I really enjoyed! Although, I felt quite underpaid for the work I was doing. Office Angels seem to offer at the lowest salary for typical admin/reception jobs than any other agency. I recently did a short temp role of only a few weeks and I was completely mis-sold the role. I was told it would be reception work, answering the phone, directing calls, greeting clients etc. It was all very glammed up by Office Angels. When I… Read Full Review

“AVOID AVOID AVOID”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by AryanaAndrews (1 review written)

I have an extremely strong background in administration and a degree, therefore am over qualified for most jobs they advertised. However, after hounding them constantly and being told that people were in meetings/out of the office/ off sick/ on holiday, I never got anything back. They are totally unprofessional AVOID AT ALL COSTS… Read Full Review

“Horrible! Horrible!”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by lxHodges133 (1 review written)

Tried to apply for many jobs through them, no reply on ANY. I have many years of experience and my CV looks pretty good. I went to the oxford circus branch, left me cv and wait...Nothing, called them up few times questioning why i cannot even get a personal interview with the consultant, i've heard we are very busy ;-P Luckily there are many other good (maybe smaller) agencies, who care more about people...I have found a good job last week. I wouldnt bother go there, once again: HORRIBLE!… Read Full Review

“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

“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

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
