“ok”

Written on: 21/06/2019 by quitefrank (1 review written)

I have gotten a job through them and am very stable but this was because of the person I dealt with:  shes so lovely and will not forget how much she has done for me on the other hand, I currently deal with a different lady the most awful woman to speak to, shes rude and quite frankly incompetent. hate having to contact her for anything as its never a nice response back, the only good thing shes capable of doing is actually reply to me i suppose… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 25/03/2019 by Luca60 (1 review written)

I tried to join this agency as I thought they were somewhat serious about actually finding people jobs. After sending my cv and going to the offices in person, I had to chase them to actually get me in for an interview. And after that, they never got in touch with me again. Never replied to my emails and basically completely ignoring me. Not the way you want to deal with new candidates. So, word of advice, try and apply for jobs yourself as they are a waste of time… Read Full Review

“Discrimination”

Written on: 18/04/2018

I come from another continent, but have studied and worked in the UK most of my life, always with a valid visa and always paying all my taxes etc. I had an interview with Office Angels in south of England and everything went fine, until the manager called me a couple of days later, nearly yelling that she reported me to Home Office for working illegally, that "all you immigrants come here working illegally and then don't want to take any jobs, but just take benefits", she promised to report me… Read Full Review

“They never contact you”

Written on: 09/02/2018 by KaiaDuggan271 (1 review written)

I have tried to call Office Angels to book an appointment to introduce myself and talk about my CV and what job I was looking for. The lady on the phone told me that there was no appointment available and asked to call back. A day later another lady told me exactly the same. I then decided to just turn up to their office. When I arrived a woman directly came to me and handed me some forms to fill in. That woman told me that they will contact me as soon as they have a permanent job available… Read Full Review

“Useless”

Written on: 24/11/2017 by Dawson122 (1 review written)

Applied for a job that was advertised by Office Angels Manchester. They required me to come in and sign up with them before they would arrange an interview and mentioned that with my CV they would have several vacancies that could be interesting. Once the interview was arranged, they called me numerous times with useless advice like, I should put my best foot forward, be perky etc. (because with 20+ years of job experience, I clearly need advice how to go through a job interview). Once the… Read Full Review

I have sent my details over and heard nothing for 2 months so I resent my Cv and rang 2 days after, someone rang me who was very nice over the phone but didn't have anything for me, she then passed me through to the manager who said she had the ideal role for me... she said she would email/ring me with details.

“Candidates requirements come 2nd to recruiters commission”

Written on: 22/06/2017 by 163Silva (1 review written)

Initially i had to write an abrupt email to Office Angels to get noticed as i had been applying to multiple vacancies i clearly suited with no response. Once i got noticed i briefed the recruiters on what i was looking for, they then called with various positions that did not match this criteria. I had a meeting in office with one of the recruiters, she seemed lovely but had a job spec for a role i specifically said i didn't want and then 'sold' me another role which sounded ideal.. that was… Read Full Review

“Avoid Office Angels based in Taunton.”

Written on: 20/02/2017 by AdalynTilley (1 review written)

Office Angels employees in Taunton are rude and only seem interested in registering as many people as possible. They are an agency for Office Workers but now offer manual work in factories for goodness sake. If a job ends because the person sent to that place of work is not up to the standard required then Office Angels will never send that person on anymore assignments. When I asked if I could contact the Managing Director I was told that's not possible. They promise to ring as soon as a… Read Full Review

“Never ever again !! Very rude and arrogant !”

Written on: 03/10/2016 by Patton36 (1 review written)

Went to the Office Angels Chelmsford over a year ago, was told I was being short listed for a job I applied for, turns out I weren't short listed and no mention either when I turned up, just for me to go and sign up, was seen to by a rude consultant, looking down on me, felt very offended and unhappy! I was told the reason I do get interviews and unssuccessfull was the way I answered the questions and my body language, what are you a psychic ? Thinking she is better than anyone !! Make you feel… Read Full Review

“Got me out the door working!”

Written on: 14/09/2016 by KendrickMcKnight84 (1 review written)

I signed up with Office Angels because I needed money and know no other way to get it apart from working. Office Angels got me work when I really needed it when I was going mad with anxiety waiting for other agencies to place me doing work that they felt was what I was worth. Fine but I needed to work a.s.ap. and Office Angels called within a week of registering with them with work close to where I live, super short notice and not the best pay but if you really need to work like I did then you… Read Full Review

“Fake jobs and rude consultants”

Written on: 29/07/2016 by Jonn311 (1 review written)

I honestly don't think Office Angels have half the jobs they advertise on various jobsites. When I registered with them a few years ago, the consultant was so nice on the phone and then she was a little abrupt in the interview. I sat in their office and did some skills tests, went through my CV and then was sent on an interview for a permanent job which turned out to be a little different from what the consultant described. It was supposed to a be a lovely media company but it was in a small… Read Full Review

In contact with a London branch who wanted me to interview with a charity who's cause I don't agree with (personal reasons). Couldn't take that position anyway for other reason. Contacted another branch more central and was abruptly told they are not even taking people in to register.. Don't believe them but moving on anyway. OA staff don't look down on people out of work it could be you one day… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional, rude, waste of time ”

Written on: 31/05/2016 by Hazel234 (1 review written)

I registered with the Preston Office Angels branch and it was a total waste of time. They called me up and offered me an interview and I said I'll get back to them shortly. Within that time I got another offer that I was more interested in and there fore Accepted the interview. I called office Angels back and politely told them I wasn't going to accept the interview because I've had another offer that is more suitable and have accepted it. The lady on the phone then said "I was a waste of time… Read Full Review

“Deceiving and unprofessional”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by Glover368 (1 review written)

Office Angels are a disgrace to employment agencies. They lied to me on a number of occasions about potential jobs trying to make them sound more appealing. I've used 2 of their branches in London and both of them have been a disappointment and waste of time. They are only concerned with making a quick commission and have no regard for the person they are placing. I will discourage anyone from using them. There are far better agencies out there - do yourself a big favour and avoid these people!… Read Full Review
