Applied for a job on reed website. I was excited when a few days later I was contacted by the agency. The lady who spoke to me was seemed friendly and said that I must book an interview with them. I arrange a date and time to come in to register with them. Attended the office for my meeting i was passed on to someone totally different to who I was booked in with despite the person I was originally booked in with sitting at her desk looking at other work! Very rude I thought. The lady who I had… Read Full Review

“No communication”

Written on: 29/08/2019 by gkSullivan131 (1 review written)

I interviewed for a job through Forrest recruitment in Warrington, I was not even given the Courtesy of a phone call back for feedback from the interview which I presume I didn’t get. I phoned the agency twice and was promised call backs both times. This did not happen. I’m truly shocked by their customer service!… Read Full Review

“No response ”

Written on: 01/08/2019 by uoMurray330 (1 review written)

I have used this agency twice and both times they have been of no assistance. The second time I used their service I had no choice as a job I had applied for on a job search website was advertised by them. I attended the office and was passed on to someone totally different to who I was booked in with despite the person I was originally booked in with sitting right there at her desk as she thought it was more important to take her dinner (note: do not book someone in at a certain time if your… Read Full Review

“Racist people who are being reported”

Written on: 09/11/2017 by DesireeAlmeida334 (1 review written)

They will not even allow anyone of ethnicity into their building. They reject everyone with an accent at the door. I will be contacting Bolton Council and if you suffered the same treatment please contact the Council. I have heard from many others and we want a class law suit against the women in the Bolton Branch. … Read Full Review

“Couldn't Not Say Thank You...”

Written on: 08/09/2017 by RPeters (1 review written)

I've been affiliated with the Central Manchester branch for a year now, and have been introduced to two separate employers - the latter with whom I have just commenced a permanent role. I couldn't recommend Forrest thoroughly enough. During my inaugural meeting, I found the team to be informative and enthusiastic, managing to arrange a temp role for me straight away. My visits to the company were infrequent, since communication mostly took place over the phone or through email, but the… Read Full Review

Tracynutter's Response to RPeters's Review

Written on: 04/01/2019

I found 2 jobs that I would of liked to apply for with forrest recruitment but was totally unhelpful in accommodating a temporary worker paid by for hours worked. I think they could do more a meet candidates who need to register with them for jobs, rather than I siting they meet in the office nearly 10 miles out between the hours of 9 am and 4.30pm which is potentially half a day in lost wages adding the cost of travel and parking. Many other agencies offer the option of meeting locally if the candidate can't get in to the office, or the option of meeting after working hours to try and accommodate candidates. I would not recommend this agency any candidate or potential client

Written on: 06/08/2016 by Templeton75 (1 review written)

since I registered with the agency they kept taking me to far places to work so I had to be waking up at 4 30am to get to work on time. and the first day I was late as I wasn't familiar with the place I went to. so because of that I decided to not take any breaks to show that I was sorry for being late. the second day at work there was a fire alarm and the person in charge of me didn't even let me know the procedure of what I needed to do in case of a fire alarm she didn't even check if I was… Read Full Review

“Only Recruits for Temps”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by SoliDeoGloria (13 reviews written)

I loaded my CV onto a well known job search internet site and then applied for a position as an Office Manager through Forrest Recruitment based in Manchester. I was highly excited when a day later I was contacted by Forrest - the girl who spoke to me was really excited and said that I must book an interview - which really excited me because it had been applying for a lot of positions with no real feedback. We agreed a date and I was about to end the call when she said: "that's all booked… Read Full Review
