“So So disappointed and angry with Office Angels! ”

Written on: 26/07/2014

First of all Dartford Office Angels have let me down so much! I was being made redundant from my job in London so signed up with Office Angels Dartford branch in which at first they was lovely, couldn't do enough for me and was amazing, I even brought them cupcakes and chocolate to say thank you! Then I had an amazing interview and got offered the job, so I accepted the job as I was being made redundant, Office Angles pushed and pushed me to hand my notice in for early redundancy, so I did… Read Full Review

“avoid the Solihull branch at all costs!!”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by tamdan (1 review written)

I applied for a temporary receptionist position with this 'agency.' a few days after i sent off my application, i was contacted by one of their consultants, who informed me that she had seen my CV online, and asked me to call her back. She sounded really positive, so i thought that maybe she had found me something. i have a physical disability, so i thought that i had better phone her up to arrange an face to face appointment, so i would be able to brief her about my situation, so i called… Read Full Review

“Not very good!”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by dmQuinlan76 (1 review written)

I got offered one job while with this agency, they never offered enough or tried hard to find anything suitable. I have a distinction in Microsoft Office Suite 2010 but yet they couldn't find me any office jobs? Pretty useless if you ask me… Read Full Review

“Useless!o”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by 1971Scott (1 review written)

When I had my interview to join the agency I explained that I would only be able to work to places that are easily accessible by train or in my home town as at the time I didn't have my own car, I know my circumstances weren't ideal as I couldn't be too flexible but it's their job to help isn't it? I said I wouldn't mind travelling, but again, I didnt have my own car so it would have to be by train.. I was repeatedly offered jobs in places I couldn't get to (because there were no trains going… Read Full Review

“Incredibly unprofessional”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by zmClayton87 (1 review written)

I received a call from a member of Office Angels offering me a job, the client had seen my CV and offered me the temporary position without interviewing me and wanted me to start ASAP. I , albeit quite ignorantly, assumed that the Office Angel would have checked that I would be able to travel there adequately. I accepted the job after receiving the general sales pitch about how fantastic the opportunity was. When I got home, I had received an email with the location of the job. When looked it… Read Full Review

“Disgusting attitude from Principal Advisor”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by Hayden1951 (1 review written)

I was signed up to the Maidstone branch of Office 'Angels' and at first I thought they were professional. I was put on a temp assignment at the very last minute which was all well and good. However my personal circumstances meant that I was unable to work due to a family accident. I was stunned shocked to receive a very irate and disgusting worded email from the principal advisor email telling me how unprofessional and unethical my work attitude is. Couldnt believe it. They are big bullies and… Read Full Review

“If you want to be insulted, go to the Crawley Branch!!!”

Written on: 27/05/2014

Worst agency I have EVER encountered! The most humiliating experience I have had in a long time. Recruiter, on perm side, said she would not send out my CV because I had a recent gap and employers wouldn't be interested. During this gap I took and passed some computer exams, but this didn't count as far as she was concerned. Following the gap, I took a 3 month temp assignment, but she said this didn't count either, and there were plenty of people on her books already in employment, and… Read Full Review

“Misleading, Rude and Liars!”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by Wootenhf307 (1 review written)

I was relocating to London at the beginning of the year and had an address, date to move in etc and I joined the agency Office Angels Oxford Circus branch, and was asked to go in and meet with one of the consultants. I have a lot of Reception experience and was not fussy about salary and thought I stood a good chance as the lady initially seemed very impressed by my CV. After being made to wait in the office for 40 minutes a lady appeared and we had a chat and she told me she would contact me… Read Full Review

I live in Kent and have applied for hundreds of jobs through Office Angels over a 5 year period on and off. In all that time I have only ever been called ONCE! One solitary phone call! Applying for a job with these so called recruiters is like a broken pencil - pointless!!… Read Full Review

“Are you sure the name isn't Office Devils??”

Written on: 15/02/2014

Had an absolutely horrific experience with this agency. Had an interview with a client through them and was told I had progressed through to the second stage interviews. Waited for over 2 weeks for a date only to be informed that I was no longer through. When I explained that I felt this was unethical, I was chastised for daring to want some form of justice or explanation and informed I would not be put forward for any future vacancies - professional! I have since contacted the client directly… Read Full Review

“ASHFORD, KENT - PRINCIPAL CONSULTANT IS HORRID”

Written on: 06/02/2014 by betteroffwithoutofficeangels (1 review written)

This review is based on my experience with the principal consultant at the Ashford branch in Kent who thinks she is some queen bee in recruitment. She keep me waiting for my appointment, made me feel like rubbish and is not a nice person. Still can't believe how she spoke to me and upset me. Told me I'd find it hard getting a job. What a waste of time. She is a bully. Do not bother with them! She's so horrible if she saw this and read it, it would not upset her, she'd just laugh… Read Full Review

Signed up, went for the interview for a local company. I was told I had the job. I was given a start date that was moved four times!! in this time I turned down another job due to being told I had this new job through Office Angels. After three weeks of the start date being moved, I could not get hold of the women at office angel, only to receive an Email telling me they no longer needed anyone. I lost out on another job and they wasted my time. Avoid at all costs!!! … Read Full Review

“Office Angels Leeds AVOID”

Written on: 08/01/2014

What a waste of time going to this poor excuse of a recruitment agency. The manager cared more about how she looked than doing any kind of a good job. She was constantly rude, offensive and insulting. She's the only manager of an agency I know of that is so bad other agencies know about her extremely poor reputation and bad attitude. I'd advise anyone to avoid going here, there's plenty more agencies about… Read Full Review

“CRAP!!!”

Written on: 22/12/2013 by Inferno52 (2 reviews written)

I remember making such sorry blunder of a mistake with this idiot agency. All they're good for is being pretty, wearing fancy tart like clothes and acting professional when in fact they are far from that. They messed me about with jobs that lasted no more than a day, also one of them insulted by saying that I wasn't smart dressed. I almost felt like punching her for that remark made. TRASH in every sense of the word, I can't believe people make out it's good, what a load of rubbish, never… Read Full Review

“Office Angels Glasgow - Recruitment Agency Fail!”

Written on: 11/10/2013

They contacted me about an "urgent" role and I looked like the ideal candidate for the role would I be interested. I said I was and could she give me more details. After a brief conversation I was advised I would need to come in to officially register but my CV would be sent to the client. I was given a date and time to complete the registration. I took time and went to their offices. I was promptly handed a clipboard with the paperwork on it to register, after this was completed I was… Read Full Review

“The Lord Lucan & Loch Ness Monster of the agency world”

Written on: 30/09/2013 by Plst2 (1 review written)

Its thanks to so-called 'employment agencies' such as this one that I'm almost certainly going to have to find some form of work-from-home self employment as I just cannot obtain any work from them. They're so uncommunicative & 'silent' I'm beginning to doubt their very existence, like some strange mythic beast of worlds long ago!!. I have more chance of being phoned personally by Bill Gates or Roman Abramovich than Office Angels lol. … Read Full Review

“Do not bother!”

Written on: 30/09/2013

Tried 2 different towns both of which have let me down. Only interested in getting their money not about the person looking for work. And god forbid if you are busy when they want you to work! Even if you have an interview elsewhere and have to turn down a day of work...they won't contact you again… Read Full Review

Plst2's Comment

Written on: 30/09/2013

I totally agree with you. I've had no work offers whatsoever, despite stacks of online applications for vacancies I'm completely qualified & experienced in to do in my sleep. Almost all their staff are too young & inexperienced themselves in the world of work to be making decisions on people like us & are terrible at both keeping in touch & bothering themselves to reply to emails & phone calls.
waste of time.
Best of luck to you, fellow jobseeker - I know how tough it is out there.

“Office Angels Gloucester”

Written on: 18/09/2013

I would not recommend anybody to use the Gloucester Branch of Office Angels as most of the jobs that they advertise do not exist - I have applied for several jobs through this office which are displayed on their website as a "brand new vacancy" but when you submit your details for said job, you get an e.mail back from a consultant saying "sorry, the position has already been filled"!… Read Full Review

“Absolutely horrendous company”

Written on: 12/09/2013

I have been unable to start 2 different jobs because of this company. When my last job came to an end, I was told by Office Angels that they would place me in another booking for the following week, no interview required. However they then told me they were unable to let me work for this new company due to the smallprint which they Office Angels had missed which effectively ruled me out for the job. A few weeks later through a different agency I applied for another job and was told that I had… Read Full Review
