“Terrible and unprofession agency”

Written on: 05/10/2020

I have worked for many agencies over the years, most have there quirks and indiffent styles, however none are as bad as Lorien. They expected me to work before they had even raised a contract and for a lower daily rate then they had advertised. I asked twice for clarification about the exact length of contract, notice period and mileage criteria and when I refused to go to site because of the lack of clarification, I got an angry lecture of why it was all my fault and that i had let them down… Read Full Review

“Awful agency”

Written on: 31/01/2020

Went for two interviews through this agency. The first was supposedly for someone with VBA.Net and SQL experience when I got an interview with client turned out they were looking for someone with knowledge of RPG. Female consultant blamed it on a mix up on the clients side. Had another interview for a different client through the same agent supposedly for someone with MS Stack experience (SQL Server, SSIS, SSRS, SSAS) turned out the client wanted Oracle and Business Objects. It became obvious… Read Full Review

“Rubbish customer service”

Written on: 17/09/2019

Went to a job interview on recommendation from someone in the company. The recruiter said that I was resentful to the company I went to interview for! Baring in mind, the interviewers made us do so much work, final interview they didn't let me look at my notes I made and asked very silly questions and irrelevant questions! Shocking. Never had such a poor experience and never felt so uncomfortable felt like I was being interrogated in an exam room. I told the recruiter and he didn't care and… Read Full Review

“Run the other way!!”

Written on: 17/05/2019 by Tori327 (1 review written)

Absolutely incompetent beyond belief. Not limited to one individual in the company. Excessive paper work when onboarding requiring wasteful printing and scanning. Mix ups with other people they're dealing with (likely they are at high risk of data contamination and exposure). Extremely slow to pay. AVOID AVOID AVOID… Read Full Review

“Buttock-clenchingly awful.”

Written on: 29/05/2016 by Atticus110 (1 review written)

I've never experienced a recruitment agent quite so bad. To begin with, everything seemed to be fine. their staff weren't super helpful. I later learned that's because they put all their nice people on the on-boarding tasks. Once you're signed up, however, it all changes. If you call in with a problem, they're abrupt and disinterested. The portal is unfathomable, and if you ask for help, they're pretty rude. I imagine this is how Lorien saves money; it forces you and me to do all the… Read Full Review

“Awful recruitment agency - not worth a visit!”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by bouncer45 (15 reviews written)

Incomplete job descriptions, poor recruiters who obviously have found a market and keep exploiting it. But its not the market i work in that's for sure, won't even accept feedback when the job process goes wrong. Which it does repeatedly for Lorien as they refuse to either give the full job description or to get it from the employer - hard to tell from the candidates view! Steer well clear. … Read Full Review

“Lorien are RUBBISH. They NEVER follow up or call you back”

Written on: 26/08/2015

I worked through Lorien once. The assignment went ok. No complaints. Subsequent conversations to follow up for further work with emails and phone calls were pointless. I emailed 3 contacts I know in that firm - no reply ever I phone - I actually speak to one of those contacts, and get a promise of a call-back that day - no returned call (and this is the second time this has happened). Alternative messages through LinkedIn - no response. Phone calls to other contacts either go to voicemail… Read Full Review

“Totally Incompetent !”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by Barrettik498 (1 review written)

I applied for an advertised role, and Lorien called me to go through my CV...after which they said they would be submitting my CV for consideration to the hiring manager. In due course I was told that I had indeed been selected for interview, to take place on Thursday of the next week, and that someone would be calling me to confirm the details. Nobody called. I e-mailed them - no response. It got to Thursday and I e-mailed Lorien again. This time they phoned and left a voicemail message… Read Full Review

“Never ever ever agin”

Written on: 01/05/2015 by LondynGeorge (1 review written)

Completely useless bunch of idiots. Forced to sign contract with umbrella company to get paid. People from lorien are not able to put even correct detail into the system. my contract was several times extended and every time they screwed up something. Filling timesheet on 3 different accounts which non of then works properly and thats why wages were delayed. Waste of time and money if someone consider to work for them. Always excuses that problem is somewhere else… Read Full Review

“Obnoxious and unprofessional consultants”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by Wood292 (1 review written)

After seeing an advert on SCJ.com I contacted Lorien as the link was not working. The contact details were wrong, name ( no longer working for Lorien), contact number not obtainable. I finally got the contact detail of the correct rep. 1 week later and plenty of follow up from me, I finally get a phone call. Apparently my email came up as spam and that was why he did not respond, interesting this is the only person who has ever encountered this issue. Three phone messages later he finally… Read Full Review

“Dreadful”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by Vaughandv259 (1 review written)

I was submitted for a job via them, found out 3 months later that they hadn't submitted my cv to the client. After another 6 weeks, i got an interview for a role that i couldnt do, and hadnt applied for. They had submitted for the wrong role. I understand that it's all about sales and that they work for the client and not the contractor, but these guys dont even pretend. They just slashed 10% off peoples rates , presumably becausethey dont feel they are making enough. In a nutshell, imcompetent… Read Full Review

“Worst Agency for Contract work ever”

Written on: 22/10/2013

By far, this is the worst agency I have used for a contract position ever. They needed someone in a rush for a weeks contract, I accepted on condition that I will still be active on the market. This contract was terminated because I had to attend an interview and since the 09/09/2013 I am still waiting for payment. They keep comming up with all sorts of excuses about missing information that it is needed before they pay me, however I am no longer with them nor do I ever intend using them ever… Read Full Review

“Expenses an Pay Problems”

Written on: 13/02/2013

Had a 3 month contract with Lorien and they seem to get nothing right. I was informed after I signed up that I would get paid a month after I did the work. I accepted this but then never got paid due to errors that they made and didn't tell me. The same goes for expenses that only got paid when I chased them up multiple times. I have worked with many agencies and never had one as useless as this. I have managed to rack up a huge credit card bill as I would have missed mortgage payments if I… Read Full Review

yes, they are very useless. They will deduct most hours and never even pay you what you are entitle to.

“Late pay”

Written on: 21/01/2013

Started off a contract with Lorien and after asking when I would get paid a couple of weeks into the contract they said a month after I put in the invoice or pay £50 to clear it quicker. They then got the odd week mixed up and any mistakes that they made were just ignored until i complained then after it was sorted i had to wait a month from fixing it. I am currently waiting on pay from 2 months ago as they have messed up and I have sent emails and phoned everyday since. They have 3 months… Read Full Review
