    Commercial Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Office Angels (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was told to give all my personal details, passport, etc. before even knowing the name of the company they said I had a perfect match with. Taken to a gloomy room (after a rude receptionist welcomed me) for an in-depth discussion about my previous experience (still not knowing the name of the company or any additional info about the role). Eventually asked to wait while she printed out the full job description. When I read that I didn't know if I wanted to cry or what - same generic 3 lines she read out over the phone without any additional details at all, no role qualifications or anything, only the company logo (absolutely unknown). Office Angels messaged me the following day saying the client was keen to meet me for an interview - I obviously declined. Pathetic

    Administrative Temp Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Office Angels (Edinburgh, Scotland) in September 2018.

    Interview

    overall it was quick and informal. they managed to get me in quickly and it took about 30 minutes to meet with both temp and perm recruiters. Once the interview was over I then had to chase them up for a role rather than the opposite way around. Apart from this is was a positive experience and they made me feel at ease

    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Office Angels (Glasgow, Scotland) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Don't have their act together at all - lost my CV on three occasions in one day, rang my references twice before and twice after the interview, and I actually had the company they were interviewing me for complain to me about their performance when I went for the second round interview, apologising that they likely would not hire me so they could end the contract with this company. As I've been working with HR people in large organisations for the past three years and shared this story with them , I've been informed there's an informal veto on using this company as a temp supplier given their staggering incompetence.

    Reasons for Declining

    I doubted they'd be able to pay me correctly + they had supplied me with the wrong details of the job, which I only found out at interiew.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Office Angels (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process they put you in under is judgemental, cliquey and rude. They made me put together a whole presentation which took hard work and effort. This was the final stage to the interview process and it is completely unprofessional just to not give feedback at all. They showed up 25 mins late to the interview and I’ve never been into a company and been put under such scrutiny to not receive any feedback at all. I received 3 other offers from other companies, one who I took the role with and have enjoyed the experience. Overall all intervieweing with 6 other recruitment agencies, but office angels was not only the worst company I met with in recruitment but also the worst across other industries I have worked in.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Office Angels (Cardiff, Wales).

    Interview

    The process was strung out over 3 weeks and 3 different manages asking the same questions, unprofessional handling of interviews, glad I didn't get the job after having to call several times for an answer.
    Wouldn't bother, if they are unprofessional at interview stage, guaranteed they would a unworthy employer.
