      I worked at Adecco part-time

      Pros

      I really can't think of any.

      Cons

      At interview I was asked by the manager 'you're not planning to get pregnant anytime soon are you?'

There is very little parking, you will be blocked in every day The systems they use are antiquated, hard to navigate and...

      Pay is good for low skilled job

      Cons

      Job security Poor communication Pushed for rates - never enough False promises Tracked every second

      Advice to Management

The vast majority of my agency colleagues have been sacked with no explanation. Work colleagues are being dismissed at random times through...
