  1. "A few hiccups with payroll but excellent in all other areas"

    I have been working at Premiere People full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was competitive, very helpful staff and they provide good job opportunities as compared to most other agencies. Communication was excellent between Premiere People's staff officer and agency staff.

    I replied to an ad looking for Administrative Officers for the Civil Service and I was hired within a week after going through a criminal records and credit check. No interview was required for the role and I was trained on the job, so prior experience was not essential.

    The contract was initially for a year and my contract was currently extended for another three months.

    Cons

    There was a few hiccups with timesheets and incorrect pay when I was working overtime, but it had only happened to me a couple of times and my pay has been accurate since. However, it has happened to my colleagues fairly often, so that requires improvement.

    Most of their jobs are temporary, so your job security is not guaranteed. You don't get paid for bank holidays and sick days unless you use your annual leave, but that's standard for recruitment agencies in general.

    Advice to Management

    Improve payroll accuracy.

    I have been working at Premiere People full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay after 12 weeks
    Weekly pay
    Civil service positions offer flexi
    Lots of overtime available if you want to make extra cash

    Cons

    Never replied to a single email from me
    Phone calls never answered or returned
    Extremely hard to get in touch with anyone
    Mess up a lot of peoples pay consistently each week
    Can be quite condescending yet it is them who don’t know what they’re doing

    Advice to Management

    The whole place needs an overhaul. They have a fancy new office in Belfast yet the same old staff with the same old attitudes as before. Their payroll department is a shambles and frequently get people’s pay wrong.

    Pros

    None worth talking about at all

    Cons

    No communication, dont get paid, offered emergency pay (only if you really need it) and is 60%. Very rude staff, when in office waiting for interview, the language of staff in office was disgusting. Very unprofessional set up.

    I worked at Premiere People full-time

    Pros

    The buzzer on front door works.

    Cons

    Constantly messing pay up. Worked for Premiere within the Civil Service and they were useless. Despite moving within the same department three times where the pay was supposed to remain at the full civil service pay, they paid several of us minimum wage. The civil service from day one paid premiere around £20ph for us to be there yet for the first 3 months they pay the worker minimum wage which is horrendous. When our pay did go up to the £10.40ph after 12 weeks they messed it all up. Some in the same team got the increase whilst the rest of us were still on minimum wage for weeks after. Most of the time they don’t reply to emails and good luck ever trying to get them via phone. They are a shambles.

    None of the staff have an idea what each other is doing. They constantly lost personal files. Leave people hanging to the last minute. Would never work for them ever again. They also mess up holiday sheets and avoid paying the correct holiday wages.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the Belfast office as most of the staff have no idea what they are doing. Also sort out the brain dead receptionists who seem to treat the front desk as a social event than a professional work place.

    Got me a job in the civil service I'm really happy with. No complaints about anything, always paid on time.
