What is working from home like at Search Consultancy?

Pros

Barely a pro but: Working from home Mondays and Friday's, Being paid weekly was alright , good if you're desperate and need work

Cons

Emergency tax - even though you provide a p45 to them when you first join, temp payroll ignore this and decide to just put everyone on an emergency tax code, HR refuse to apologise even though it is there error and are extremely rude with this, Manager - very rude, he would tell staff off in front of everyone just for talking for 2 minutes even if the workload was mostly done by staff, he would not let you work from home for the day even if you had an issue like a boiler man or needed to be home that particular day for some reason, Lack of respect for employees: Manager decided to inform me that I would be contacting candidates on my personal phone 5 minutes before the end of the day and would have to download an unknown app onto my phone to do this ; even though this is something I advised that I would not do on many occasions, additionally the company did not discuss any additional pay to cover the use of my personal phone and minutes for this, or how it would factor into candidates contacting my personal phone at all hours, No longevity - someone in the office I was in was there for a year and a half and still on a temp weekly contract - says they don't care about keeping people on, Minimum wage - you're expected to assess graduate video interviews, input graduate details onto a crm system or do phone interviews for EE on minimum wage while these people earn more than you, then they try to pressure you to do this even though they give you the absolute bare minimum, P45 and holiday pay - it has taken me threatening to invoke legal action with ACAS and speaking to 4 different people to even get my holiday pay i was owed nearly a month on, I still do not have a p45 from them, No written contact and the company is extremely bad in the way it has dealt with Covid,

Advice to Management

Your managers are clearly on a powertrip fantasy, dont expect maximum effort for minimum wage, If a role can be done from home then allow temps to do this, just because a manager has a unrealistic need to observe people but then sit on his phone and do no work just to make sure staff is in really shows how unnecisairy commuting to an office for MINIMUM wage is. Pay - you expect temps to assess graduate scheme applicants who are on a decent salary for minimum wage, why do you expect staff to put in any effort when you pay the absolute bare minimum? Sort out your hr department ; if someone has been putting staff on emergency tax even though they are provided with a p45 they clearly cannot do their job effectively. Especially if it has happened for OVER A YEAR. Additionally keep good temps on, there is no sense to just hiring temps again and again instead of retaining good staff, particularly if there is staff who have been there for over a year and a half and have never once been offered a permanant position.

very rude, he would tell staff off in front of everyone just for talking for 2 minutes even if the workload was mostly done by staff, he would not let you work from home for the day even if you had an issue like a boiler man or needed to be home that particular day for some reason,
