    Pros

    Flexible working times, no obligation to commit to shifts

    Extremely short notice when sending out messages for shifts. Morning shifts for 9am usually sent out ~8am giving very little time to get ready. No consistency when offering shifts.

    I worked at Angard Staffing part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice Co-workers - All in the same boat

    Cons

    Difficult to get shifts - phones always busy when you call in, not enough work to support a family and typically less than 4-5K per year in total.

    Advice to Management

    Use Email to book staff rather than text then expect people to try and get through on the very busy phones only to be told by an automated voice that all shifts have gone await for a text - which never comes!! Blocking hard working compliant staff who get on well with co-workers and eventual fire them or ask them to reapply for a position after 2-3 years of work on the same site because they haven't been able to get... work for 6-12 weeks due to lack of work on site or get through on the phone. Dastardly position for any worker to be in. :( Choose another agency who have much better contact polices to avoid frustration.

    I have been working at Angard Staffing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Currently working as a casual mail sorter. Flexible hours are a plus, usually placed on a 5 or 8 hour shift. Work can involve heavy lifting and spending lots of time on your feet. Great for some temporary work to earn a bit of money or someone with other responsibilities. You may get to work at multiple sites as you're often called where extra staff are needed, so good opportunities to meet people.

    Cons

    The shifts aren't consistent and usually contacted last minute without much notice, so can be challenging to plan your time. Pay scale dependant on how long you worked with the agency so don't expect much earnings initially. Sometimes it is hard to contact the agency to resolve issues regarding shifts or pay. One annoying thing is the agency will usually call using a private number, so you're never really sure if... it's a spam caller or available shifts!

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to contact the agency and allow more notice for available shifts. Stop using a private number to contact staff too would be nice.
