“Warehouse Operative ”

Written on: 12/12/2015 by McNamarazs49 (1 review written)

Marks and Spencer. Handling a very large workforce for the Xmas period you would expect that there would be teething problems but unfortunately the main issue seems to be around pay and missed payments. I've not experienced any issues in that area but there's plenty who have and you hear complaints daily. However beware the ads. They DO NOT give you 1.5 for overtime. The Blue Arrow staff are a bit thin on the ground too and obviously stretched. As a result, general communication is very… Read Full Review

“Blue Arrow Castle Donnington M+S”

Written on: 11/11/2015 by Jessie324 (1 review written)

totally unprofessional company. After Two months they still cannot achieve paying people correctly. Some people on weekly pay have yet to be paid at all for over a month.They fail to understand workers have rent , council tax , etc to pay. They cannot produce pay slips which separate basic pay from overtime pay so as to confuse employees.The important word here is "confuse". Their attitude appears to be that if they can confuse workers, then they might get away with paying less.I hear that M+S… Read Full Review

“Completely incompetent and unprofessional”

Written on: 16/10/2015 by Weberam368 (1 review written)

I worked for blue arrow for almost 2 years. They consistently failed to pay me correctly or even at all . When i have contacted them to enquire about my missing wages (in a very pleasant manner under the circumstances ) they have answered me with a rude and stroppy attitude , as if it was my own fault and didnt have a right to ask. This left me leaving me feeling really angry and also worried on several occasions about my mortgage etc being paid. I am a positive person and do not like leaving a… Read Full Review

“Warning of this agency!”

Written on: 03/08/2015 by Jadyn209 (1 review written)

This agency have the manners of a rat! There so called advice and guidance is silly. If you are keen on a job and have experience, do not listen to there advise, listen to your self. After listening to this agency worker, even tho deep down, thinking to my self, this seems to much! For a simple interview. I listened to her, which resulted in me not getting the job. She even said on the phone the next day. "You where too prepared, sorry about that, understand you where just listing to me", my… Read Full Review

“Staff at agency too busy to answer queries”

Written on: 08/07/2015 by esWatkins59 (1 review written)

I visited the Ludgate Hill catering and hospitality section in June 2015, London. I found that the staff dealing with recruiting me were too busy when I went in to register, and too busy to return my phone calls. It seems that they don't have enough staff who are willing to help with useful information about work. Also it would have been a two stage process to register. One to fill in the long application form, and then two to come in again and fill in papers before you start working there. Not… Read Full Review

“More like Broken Arrow!”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by Bragg166 (1 review written)

I was tuped across to Blue Arrow in January. When the company was awarded the contract everybody seemed fairly optimistic about the future with Blue Arrow. I have worked in my current job for around 8 years with another agency. They werent the best company to work for but ultimatley if they messed up with wages, time off or anything else theyd do what they could to ammend the problem. Just under 5 months into my employment with this shower of clowns my wages have been wrong to the tune of… Read Full Review

“Brighton Branch reduced me to tears!”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by palominopony (1 review written)

This is the worst agency I have ever dealt with. They seem to be incapable of keeping accurate records and then blame you when things are not correct. Dealt with two account managers the first of whom was friendly, the second was possibly the rudest human being I have ever met and actually reduced me to tears over the phone. Pay was never on time. A joke… Read Full Review

They don't pay you on time. They delayed one of my payments of £400 for up to a month. They end your contract without any notice. I would say use this agency as a last resort. All you are to them is just another ran number on there system… Read Full Review

“No pay for work done.”

Written on: 27/12/2014 by Simon33 (1 review written)

Contacted by an agent for a 1 month temporary telephone admin role. Informed them at the time of first contact that I would need two days off within the first two weeks to attend interviews for permanent jobs. They said they would confirm that it was ok with the employer. After working in the role for a week and informing the employer that I needed time off for an interview; was told blue arrow had made no attempt to contact them regarding the issue, and that I would not be allowed to attend… Read Full Review
