“Don't bother”

Written on: 28/03/2019 by 409Ramos (1 review written)

They are quite happy to put you forward for roles and get you an interview. Don't expect a follow up call if unsuccessful, they don't have the common decency to let you know. Wish I'd read the other reviews before agreeing for them to represent me, never again!… Read Full Review

“Incompetence isn't a strong enough word”

Written on: 01/09/2017 by MckennaCowan (1 review written)

Avoid this company like the plague. I lost my placement 4 months ago due to my dbs not being renewed within timescales. They had sent me an email reminder to the wrong email address and didn't phone me until 1 week before expiry date so my placement had to let me go. If that isn't bad enough I have not heard from the person I dealt with who was supposed to be supporting me to find a New placement for the last 2 months despite me leaving messages requesting a call back. I was then offered… Read Full Review

“Had to clean the work area before i could use it - 4...”

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

I've seen some poor contracts, but this was the worst one I have ever seen. Pretty obvious the agency had never seen the workplace as it was filthy. One guy had a runny nose that ran all over his pc's keyboard and then he was eating over it too. First day I was there i had to clean it all up with a wet wipe, made it look great - then the next day they swapped me to the next machine, which was just as bad! The day after that they swapped me too the next machine. Fourth day I was on a… Read Full Review

“nightmare”

Written on: 02/04/2015 by HilaryE (1 review written)

I did not get paid. It took two months, loads of time and an official complaint before I got my pay. The Consultant was rude and arrogant. She refused to process my pay until I resubmitted all my documents including tests which had to be done again, certificates and updated CV. This took half a day. I was given a date and promise of payment which never came. I followed up with phone calls and emails and eventually made an official complaint. I then had to submit all the paperwork again… Read Full Review

“Bad payment company”

Written on: 04/09/2014 by ZionParsons390 (1 review written)

I have heard from a friend that not only was she paid over 2 weeks late but they have have also paid a ridiculous amount of money into her account. When contacted they take messages and never call their employees,that have earned them commission by the way,back. They really must have the lowest phone call charges in the country. Why would people work for people that do not respect the people who work for them? I would not recommend anyone to work for them especially in the London office… Read Full Review

“Appalling ”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by McDermott1982 (1 review written)

Badenoch and Clark, along with the umbrella company Giant, are the worst people I have ever worked for. B&C were very forceful in making me go with Giant. I had asked numerous times to be PAYE all request were ignored until I told them I had spoken to Acas. B&C have underpaid me for my entire assignment, withheld my wages for 5 weeks and unlawfully deducted money from my pay. I would strongly recommend you stay away from this company. They are awful! Stay away from the umbrella companies… Read Full Review

“No complaints procedure. Ignored my requests for...”

Written on: 18/02/2014

Have worked for Badenoch and Clarke for nearly eight years. Discovered they had underpaid me by over £2,000. Refused to discuss and sent me erroneous records on a Subject Access Request. I asked for complaints procedure to make formal complaint. They ignored me. Have had to take them to ICO and sue them for the underpayments. They actually told me I had earned considerably more than they actually paid me contrary to my payslips. Where did the money go? I feel badly treated after making them… Read Full Review

“Cheeky, rude staff”

Written on: 13/10/2013

A bunch of monkeys work at Badenoch and Clark. Actually that is an insult to monkeys. The people at Badenoch and Clark are horrible. I have never spoken to by such arrogant, rude and condescending people before. Highly unpleasant experience, avoid this agency at all costs!… Read Full Review

Osbourneavenue's Comment

Written on: 13/05/2014

Agreed. I am one of their candidates and they consistently lie to me and go back on their word. When I question them they sneer to me down the phone. If they have work I want, I will work for them but if I ever have the choice I avoid them. They are not people I would choose to do business with.

“Complete Tozzerz AVOID at all costs.”

Written on: 12/09/2013 by Lord_Lucan (1 review written)

Had to put at least one star to submit review: Minus 10stars... Once hired... no contact or updates... complete waste of time! False promises. Never return calls. Single ring ('I did call you')calls. Leeds Branch - Totally Useless... Threats of withholding payment on every email. Calling you the wrong name. Avoid where possible... Just ask another agency with top reviews to represent you… Read Full Review

“Great Service”

Written on: 08/06/2012 by S.Denman09 (1 review written)

I dealt with Badenoch & Clark in Brighton so I cant comment on the other branches. Right from the get go they offered me an expert and efficient service. My recruitment 'partner' was friendly, enthusiastic and actually seemed to care about what I wanted (something I haven't always found with some other recruitment agencies. My own ambitions and aspirations were clearly taken into account, as were my salary expectations and travel restrictions. Eventually I was found the right job as a Senior… Read Full Review

Abz925's Response to S.Denman09's Review

Written on: 29/03/2013

I have found the whole organisation a shambles. I have worked through the Birmingham branch. They pay awful and the number of times they paid me late could run into double figures. Having been with a few agencies in Birmingham I can honestly say Badenoch and clark are by far the worst. Any one looking at joining them should stay well clear. Go with Morgan Hunt.

“shoddily treated after working for them for many years”

Written on: 26/10/2011

i am a revenues/benefits temp for over 15 years-i have earned the london office a good commission in the past by doing contract work for them in what is a very difficult and evolving industry--just because i turned down an interview appearance for a london perm position earlier this year the consultant in london immediately cut me off and made it quite plain that she would no longer refer me to her clients for work.When i appealed against this unfairness based on me having first worked for… Read Full Review

“Just awful - do not waste your time”

Written on: 25/10/2011 by agakuplinska (1 review written)

I wish I read these reviews before I contacted Bedenoch and Clark. I've sent my CV to them through efinancialcareers for a post to which I got a very short response stating that I wasn't successful. Since I've only just started a job search and wanted to discuss other opportunities they may have, and perhaps get a feedback on my CV, I gave them a call. I also wanted to find out about the experience of the person putting my CV forward and while having a conversation I've noticed he was clueless… Read Full Review

Professionalno1's Response to agakuplinska's Review

Written on: 22/03/2013

I empathise with your comment. I've had exact same experience. Told that I should only concentrate on the temp market even though I've had to temp to pay the bills whilst I look for a permanent job. Discrimination is the word. Checked the agent out too on Linkedin. I'm old enough to be his parent. He has had 1 year and 11 months in recruitment. Am gonna write letter of complaint to them. Not good enough people's careers are messed about with in this manner. Time it stopped.

“treated appalingly.”

Written on: 19/08/2011 by alexyoiks (1 review written)

I was contacted by some good for nothing idiot from the nottingham branch informing me I'd been put forward for an interview for an admin assistant. At no time during this phonecall was I informed that I had to sign up and that I wasn't actually shortlisted at all. She made it very clear how another member of the team would get in contact with me later in the week to organise an interview and asked me how much I wanted for a salary. After not contacting me I rang up this morning to discuss what… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2011

I attended two interviews with Badenoch and Clark for a job with their Legal Division. Despite being told at the second that the interviewer would call me to let me about the outcome I didn't hear from them for almost two weeks. I called after a couple of days and left a message asking to be contacted. They didn't phone me back so I emailed them and got a standard reply that they were not interested in taking my application further. Fair enough, but why they don't have a common courtesy of… Read Full Review

Received several calls from the consultant interested in my CV and as if he had several vacancies for me. Asked if I could come to register. Still waiting for email...Not consistent, not interested, not organised. Despite nice jobs on their website I am not planning to apply through them… Read Full Review
