    I have been working at Office Angels part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined Office angels in November 2017 looking for full time work during my gap year and within 2 months they found me my ideal job in the city working in recruitment. It was such a great experience and i met some friends for life. I then decided to go back to University in September and have been working on temp assignments when i have my days off. I have had work every single day that i am available. All jobs are enjoyable and environments for me have all been friendly and welcoming. All recruiters are friendly and are just a phone call away, they really get to know you and understand the type of roles best for you. I couldn't recommend office angels enough!

    Cons

    I dont have any cons!

    Pros

    Flexible around you, great job opportunities - especially if you enjoy engaging with customers and meeting new people, the company really respects you and promotes you to potential employers - one on one relationship with your recruiter. You can tell them if you need some time off due to other commitments such as university deadlines and they do!

    Cons

    No cons really, unless you aren't willing to work on the days you have said you are free!

    I worked at Office Angels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training is very good, benefits were excellent

    Cons

    If you are a temp with this company make sure you take all of your holiday entitlement branches get bonuses based on unpaid/unused holidays.

    Some very underhand tactics employed within my branch which didn’t sit right for me personally but plenty around me that were happy to work this way.

    Pay is poor for those in support roles employed by Office Angels. Often earning much less than the candidates being placed with client who have fewer responsibilities. The amount of work support staff are expected to do in their contracted hours is not achievable so majority work much longer hours than their Consultants.

    Was definitely mis-sold the role I was employed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your support staff, make sure what’s expected of them can be done in the hours they are employed to do else their hourly rates drop below minimum wage. Telling a branch when they are being audited means they have time to fudge missing paperwork. Spot check audits would fully reflect the real situation which in some cases is dire.


  4. "Liers"

    I worked at Office Angels full-time

    Pros

    none what so ever - complete waste of time

    Cons

    Lier's - do not trust a word they say - lied about staff reasons for leaving and location of job.

    Advice to Management

    Train staff to learn how to treat potential candidates with respect and not shake their hand like a wet fish. A normal smile instead of the sucking a lemon face would get a better result too. Also a bit of personality, having a normal expression instead of wide coked out eyes and open mouth like an idiot and acting like everything you say is amazing - and generally acting like the cast of the only way is essex.
