“If I could give a lower rating I would...”

Written on: 06/10/2013 by KegHorn (1 review written)

Well applying for a job, pretty straight forward. Although they do promote illiteracy within the workplace starting from the "Director". How can I get a job when they can't even be bothered to read any correspondence. All I got was a crappy "form" to fill out. Once that was completed it was silence. I have got a feeling that all they are doing is collecting details on people and the jobs they promote don't exist. I make more headway with a double glazing salesman. They used to be a big… Read Full Review

Hi. I've had similar experiences with so-called 'employment agencies' giving me the runaround. Its a disgrace that they don't have the decency to spare a minute or 2 of their oh-so-precious time to send a brief email or make a quick phone call. Its called manners & respect. We know it, but sadly, they don't!. I've spent a fair chunk of time in agency offices registering & much of the time there seems to be an excessive amount of chit-chat, laughter & general 'carrying-on' going on. I'm no po-faced git but it doesn't exactly instil confidence in them!.
all the best to you.

Written on: 27/06/2013

Had an interview on the Monday I was told I had the job on the Wednesday, sent in all required information and kept in contact with agent's. I called on the Saturday to be told that they've closed the application down due to not contacting them. When I called to find out what they meant by not contacting them being I spoke to them on on the Thursday to get an apology and that no one in there team had informed her. This meant I didn't get the job. Very unhappy with sos recruitment Bournemouth… Read Full Review

“Worst Recruiter ever”

Written on: 08/08/2012

They are not even worth 1 star! Worst recruiter ever! Do not associate with them at all. They are great at first, and after the interview, well, well, they are suddenly still waiting on clients to give them feedback, and the rest of the gibberish!! Complete time wasters!… Read Full Review

“I signed to SOS recruitment and found the agent would...”

Written on: 27/04/2011

I signed to SOS recruitment and found the agent would registered me to be quite negative and forceful, I was also left waiting for a very long after filling out the paper work with no-one asking me if i was done and people just wandering past you without acknowledging you.

The one thing I found most unfavourable was the fact it has been over a week and I have had not one phone call from my recruitment agent and have found their rival company 360 (right next door) friendly and more… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/05/2005 by espingand83 (1 review written)

Registration is tedious - involving filling out the plethora of forms which is the standard now for any recruitment agency. SOS unfortunately run a fine line between finding work for you on the one hand, and putting your name forward to a company on the other - which are two distinct things. Often it is not clear to what extent they are really making an effort to find you work (N.B. several days of telephone silence with intimitant calls asking whether you would want to apply for a specific… Read Full Review

Turpin's Response to espingand83's Review

Written on: 08/11/2005

I found the same thing. also the wages for the jobs advertised are about £2000 per year less than other agencies are advertising. I think that is due to them taking money from the wages of the candidate not the employer. Which is great for the employer who can afford the fee but not very good for us looking for work. Why don't companies just advertise on reed.co.uk which is free and is where SOS advertise and get our C.V's?
