    I have been working at Office Angels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I suppose getting paid on time?

    Cons

    Very poor communication from the consultants and I have a lot of questions about some of the companies they are recruiting for.
    They sell the usual spiel about finding you a job ASAP but seem to be somewhat like annoyed if you ring them up if they haven't after a while.
    I wouldn't recommend them at all.

    Advice to Management

    Contact interested parties actively looking for work maybe?

    I worked at Office Angels full-time

    Pros

    Gave me 1 assignment only.

    Cons

    They praised me for the one temp job they gave but now won't consider me for other roles (that I know of) despite never having a single day off.
    Also the Payroll Dept refuse to acknowledge or agree to pay me my accrued holiday pay and send out replacement pay slips even though my former consultant informs me when I phone her that she is chasing it. I am not holding my breath over ever receiving the cash or payslips.
    Another more longer term or permanent role from them would have been some consolation but at the moment even though I am applying for roles advertised, they no longer seem interested.

    Advice to Management

    Get results on requests.
    Stay in touch with employees during their assignments to check on progress and don't always assume we will contact you.
    A little more contact would go a long way.
