    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Premiere People full-time for 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.

    I worked at Premiere People full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You should receive your pay, eventually.

    Cons

    Payroll consistently failed to pay myself and other colleagues on time, sometimes resulting in weeks with no pay then being taxed massively when it all came through I was a 'temporary' worker hired through Premier People for almost two years and they proved to be a consistent inconvenience any time I needed to receive my pay or arrange holidays. Their staff were not helpful and quite frequently contradictory. Delaying and providing no support for any issue at hand. As a 'temporary' (despite the fact you may work in this position for years) member of staff you have no entitlement to; sick pay, maternity leave or payment for bank holidays (days such as these where the company is closed, you need to use your accrued holiday hours to get paid) When I left a former colleague who was a permanent member of staff informed me that they had all received the government issued backpay issued to civil and public service staff. I had to chase Premier People for about 6 months after permanent staff received it before I finally received a check. They offered no screening of candidates for the position I applied, no checking of qualifications or anything, simply a 20 minute chat about the post. Which was concerning considering it was for a prominent veterinary diagnostics and research company
