“Rude,disrespectful,patronising - Earls Crt...”

Written on: 01/11/2017 by Gracexz1964 (1 review written)

This review concerns the staff at the recruitment agency - The Best Connection- Earls Court branch, London. When I went to sign up I guessed something wasn't quite right, lots of arrogant and loud staff. But anyway, I needed the work so went ahead. Within the first week, I experienced first-hand their disrespect and heir rudeness, they wouldn't even have common polite courtesy on the phone, they would be like; 'yes hello... whats your question'? no 'how are you'? no polite human conversation… Read Full Review

“Thankfully missed a landmine here guys.”

Written on: 20/09/2017 by Cottam0089 (1 review written)

"I applied for about 15 jobs over 3 days and I got a unknown number on my phone. I was thinking it was a job offer as i already had one so I rang the number in the afternoon when I was free. It ended up being these guys. I introduced myself and asked if the call was related to me applying for the jobs I have applied for as I have applied for a few recently. The young lady over the phone started signing me up. A bit taken a back at how aggressive she was I started giving my details and history… Read Full Review

“Utter useless”

Written on: 28/04/2017 by Moriah393 (1 review written)

Everytime I've booked a holiday with this agency, they never(never) get your holidays right. I recently went on holiday and requested holidays weeks/months before to realise they've only paid me for 1 days. 1 day?!, how is this possible, do they have monkeys working at their offices?, no monkeys are more clever. It's not rocket science to look through bookings. Lack of communication with each other. Then when they know they're wrong, the famous line 'we'll add it to your next weeks wage' no… Read Full Review

“The WORST agency in the world.”

Written on: 07/10/2016

I called in to speak to Harrison at the Hanger Lane branch to request for work and after a few moments he hung up. I called back and spoke to a lady who also hung up shortly after without any form of explanation. What kind of inconsiderate do they have working there? They use you until they no longer need you so don't bother wasting your time with them… Read Full Review

“Time wasters.”

Written on: 05/04/2016 by Dravenj449 (1 review written)

The Best connections dudley branch. say they want to help you find a job. but do nothing to actually help you. There are jobs online that suit your needs but they say they are busy with other company. They lie by saying they will follow up on your behalf but never contact you. If they ever offer to ring you back they never do. I just hope companies stop using them for wasting their time too. I am disgusted. I can see jobs that suit me but cannot get in touch with them because The Best… Read Full Review

“Bunch of lying, thiefs.”

Written on: 23/03/2016

This is my 3rd week with them, my 1st weeks wages were wrong, they underpaid me and after a promise of the missing money being paid the following week they not only didn't hour their promise they underpaid me again. When you ring them the girl who does the wages has gone home, isn't in work today, is out of the office, any excuse they think they can get away with. Best Connection Scunthorpe you are a bunch of liars, I won't be working for you for a 4th week!… Read Full Review

“Great agency to work for.”

Written on: 29/02/2016 by Adrienneb1973 (1 review written)

I have signed up with The Best Connection in West Bromwich. Great friendly people who give you an honest answer when you speak to them. Found me a job at a cardboard company. They told straight away it is a long term temp job but with some hard work I will possibly get a full time job. I was given a full time job after 12 months always paid correct and on time. The 2 lads who looked after me always kept me up to date with things. They always new who I was when I came in without having to say… Read Full Review

Ipswich best connection branch really hopeless,they are advertising jobs they don't have as usual, it has been admitted to me they just want to get people in to boost numbers, when you do get offered work, it is not what you requested. as a class 1 hgv driver with many qualifications I have found it is best to join another agency , because in the last 6 months I have been offered just 8 days work! and the days I did work I didn't get the correct pay or the wrong amount of hours or both!.I did… Read Full Review

“Lies, Incompetence, Unhelpful”

Written on: 27/11/2015 by abusedagencyworker (1 review written)

Payment errors. Taking your money for their money spinning scam 'personal accident insurance', despite being told no, and then claiming you have to fill in a form to opt out of their illegally sold insurance product. When presented with a problem, often fail to get back to you, or attempt any resolution. Only with excessive badgering will they finally try and sort it. No interest in staff welfare or happiness, no follow up once placed, unaware of what you are working for their clients. Do not… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/10/2015 by clinchy_34 (1 review written)

I sighed up with best connection as i saw a job role that suited me, i rang them up and they told me come to the maidstone office to sigh up which i done the following day. I spent 2 hours going through all the crappy paper work to find out that the job was just casual work so they will phone me when needed. How about telling me this before i spent money on fuel, heard nothing from them so i decided to ring them today about a job i saw online, 05/10/15. Asked me about my work history.. i… Read Full Review
