“Not helpful or caring or considerate to a candidates ...”

Written on: 09/08/2017 by 1971Healy (1 review written)

Not helpful or caring or considerate to a candidates needs. Absolutely no care if you say no to a role that they find that is out of what you specified. Total ignorance. Not trusted or likeable to work with. Makes you feel it's your fault if you say a job is not for you. It shows they don't take the time to listen to your needs. They don't do what they state they do… Read Full Review

“Extremely undermining and bad communicators”

Written on: 07/05/2017

Really unhappy with this agency. I attended an interview arranged by them and then had to consistently chase to find out the outcome!! I was unsuccessful so they were looking at further roles to which I have heard nothing about. The recruiter was undermining and patronising and their communication skills are absolutely shocking! Avoid like the absolute plague!… Read Full Review

“Pushy Unprofessional Bad Communicators ”

Written on: 06/05/2017 by 136McKenna (1 review written)

As a candidate I applied for a role and then pushed to attend an interview for another role BEFORE THIS AGENCY HAD EVEN MET ME! Went to an interview and I asked why the post was vacant - it was a maternity cover contract which the agency failed to tell me. I requested we met, which I did, then a few weeks later another consultant asked me to come in a register - AGAIN! I attended interviews and they didn't have the decency to let me know how I got on and totally ignored my emails. Only tried to… Read Full Review

“Square Peg, Round Hole....”

Written on: 09/03/2017

Extremely pushey, won't take no for an answer even though I had doubts about my suitability for the role was pushed into attending interview. Was offered the job, the first candidate turned the job down and I had my doubts but was once again assured by their consultant that all would be just fine. The company were a sham, I was totally unhappy but still the consultant tried to talk me into staying! Never had an experience like this and I have ended up leaving a job I was allegedly perfect for… Read Full Review

“Overzealous on the sales front...”

Written on: 03/02/2017 by Finchnt274 (1 review written)

I was approached by Page when they found my CV online & after telling them my salary requirements & what I was looking for they said they had a job that would be perfect for me & that it was immediate start. I fell at their demands and rushed to register with their offices, and they told me I would be starting the training the next day (despite missing a few days of the training). I arrived for the training which involved a lot of sitting around, waiting for meeting rooms/computers/staff… Read Full Review

“Obstructive”

Written on: 18/01/2017 by Marvinj142 (1 review written)

Narrow minded attitude, reading from a script and not thinking outside of that. Certainly does not think of their client's needs in an applicant. Rely on personal social media write ups to make a decision on if you are 'allowed' to go forward. Their clients should be aware that this agency is narrowing the options available just because your online profile doesn't match the job description word for word. 'Another planet' comes to mind. Yes their rules are rules and there for a purpose, that I… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional ”

Written on: 11/12/2016 by AnabelHale1973 (1 review written)

Very unhappy with the service provided by the recruitment agent that contacted me from Michael page for a job. That I applied in London. I had the chase after the agent to get any feedback regarding interview or updates and the agent never replied to my email promptly. She was not honest regarding the position I applied to and failed provide me with the necessary information about the job and ignored my questions. I have successfully found a job with another agency now and I would not waste… Read Full Review

“Never been back in touch”

Written on: 30/11/2016 by 9McCarty (1 review written)

All the contact that I have had with Michael Page has been driven by me, a range of emails and phonecalls speaking to the agents who are very positive on the phone but nothing ever materialises. I'm shocked that anyone gets any employment through them… Read Full Review

“Do not bother!!”

Written on: 12/09/2016 by JimenaMcKnight206 (1 review written)

Appalled by the service MP provide. Had a call from a consultant after registering with them online and was asked to come to the office for a face to face discussion about my next career move, walk through my cv etc. Following the discussion i was sent an example profile and was required to write one for myself as they send these out to clients rather than your cv. Found this a little odd that I had to do this but nevertheless I spent the time to write a compelling profile and emailed it back… Read Full Review

“Want paying?? Don't use Michael Page/Page Personnel”

Written on: 02/09/2016

Absolutely shocking 'service' from Page Personnel, placed in a role which is entirely unsuitable (was told totally different), then once in the role there is no help or support to find something suitable, getting a call back from the recruiter is pretty much impossible and to top things off I've not been paid, despite submitting a timesheet and chasing. Amateurs!!!! Avoid at all costs!!!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Worst agency to deal with in the whole of the UK”

Written on: 31/08/2016 by 55Owens (1 review written)

I had applied for several Project management positions on the indeed website, but I never received a reply nor notification from Page Personnel. When I contacted their offices in St Albans was told someone would get back to me but that was a lie. I went to their website and applied for a position, in the message box, I had put "can someone, anybody contact me". Eventually, someone got back to me and suggested I forward my CV, but surprise, surprise I have not heard back from them and it’s… Read Full Review

“Contacted by a female from the Bristol branch who said...”

Written on: 14/08/2016 by Americal47 (1 review written)

Contacted by a female from the Bristol branch who said she had a potential position and would I be interested. After discussions on the role, my experience and expectation on salary I was promised a job spec. Guess what! That was Tuesday and I'm still waiting! Still waiting despite chasing for the spec on Wednesday! The best part, I've been signed up to receive updates from said organisation and yet no job spec nor courtesy call nor apology for not progressing further! Sad thing is, the… Read Full Review

“Impersonal and lack basic communication!”

Written on: 22/07/2016 by Rollinsoi494 (1 review written)

Having been placed within an organisation that has seen a huge turnover of staff in the very position I was hired for without a clear heads up I was very displeased with the service from my recruiter at the London MP who despite been given clear insight into the situation at my placement even during my placement did not do anything to support me as a candidate. Following this experience that I can only describe as an 'ordeal' my recruiter has failed to keep me interested and open to other… Read Full Review

“Will not respond”

Written on: 28/06/2016 by DanielaNichols (1 review written)

I have given up trying to apply for jobs with this agency. Although I am amply qualified, I have found that not once have I heard back. While this crushes my confidence, I am surprised at just how self destructive this is on the part of the agency. I have often been in the position of needing to recruit staff. Knowing that good candidates may not even be getting a look in will definitely make me think twice about using this agency… Read Full Review

“Atrocious and would stay away from”

Written on: 16/05/2016

I am a non UK citizen and required a visa. I applied through Michael Page and the bad service I received was beyond belief : A) emailed my recruiter 3 times over a few weeks and never got a reply from her. Had to call the office up myself constantly chasing for interview dates with no real results or the phone being picked up by the receptionist but getting no call back B) rudeness from a second recruiter claiming because it's not her client she is unaware and that they are not being… Read Full Review

“Atrocious customer/client service”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by skSmith69 (1 review written)

After applying for a couple of opportunities from this company a week ago they today decided to phone me to inform me that they had moved onto interview stages now and I was too late! Hmm, if you had looked at my application when I sent it perhaps I would have been offered an interview! Lady was rude and not confidence inspiring! As someone who loves Monday's I appreciate that not everyone does, however I do not expect people to place their down mood over onto me and then question why I'm… Read Full Review

“Full of Sales Idiots”

Written on: 15/04/2016 by Mateo1955 (1 review written)

Over the period of 4 months Michael Page had the majority of Marketing roles in my area. I applied for probably 15 that were suitable for my skills and industry experience and another 10 that were different industries but where I could transfer my skills. I did not receive one call to even acknowledge the fact I was in the market for a new job, let alone suitability for a role. After chasing the various people associated with the roles, many of them turned out to be over a month out of date… Read Full Review

“MP staff are impersonal”

Written on: 23/12/2015 by meyerm (2 reviews written)

Michael Page have a habit of treating candidates like a number not an individual person with an individual name. They make you travel to their office to re-register for nothing. They say keep in touch with your agent but you cannot get to speak to your recruitment consultant and they try to rush you off the phone. Some of the consultants are a little stuck up too. I wouldn't recommend this agency to anyone looking for office work… Read Full Review
