Typical day at work will be me early in the morning in the office, short meeting with account manager, prepare tasks for my colleagues when they will arrive at work, help associates with different problems. I have learned many things like present the inductions, coach the new employers, support my colleagues and my manager, and as a supervisor I've learned that I have to be there for my team every moment. The hardest part was to give negative feedback to someone and try to entourage them in the same time. But the most enjoyable part was to see that my team is receiving positive feedback and we had a lot of fun during our break together. In such a short time I feel that I was constantly learning how to deal with different people from different cultures and be more open minded. Even in the most difficult times because of my team support I was confident that we can make it!

Various Positions (Former Employee) – Chichester – 25 June 2018
I worked for this company while I was a student in the summer holidays. The companies that they sent me to were all very nice and friendly. However, they didn't take in to consideration that my only transport was the bus and that it would take me some time to get to places on short notice.
I didn’t interaction too much with then,but I think,if you are a good person and respectful,they also treat you the same way !

Secretary/Receptionist (Former Employee) – London – 24 May 2018
Temping with Adecco was eye opening as my first job was with Hammersmith Hospital after I was made redundant a month before. There was a large variety of temping placements offered. Management very helpful and obliging.
Various Positions (Former Employee) – Basildon, Essex – 23 May 2018
Unprofessional company. I understand there staff get commission for the placements they make but they have no right to get angry with you when you tell them your are not happy with a placement. Not given all the info about a job before you start. Would not recommend
Various Roles (Former Employee) – Basingstoke, Hampshire – 18 May 2018
If you want to make a quick couple hundred then this company is for you, but if you want to be working longer than a couple weeks don't even think about it. The staff is quite friendly even tho they have no idea what they're doing. You can be sacked with no notice (but they want you to give them a weeks notice) and no reasons given no matter how hard you worked/how good you are at your job/how long you've been there; most of the time they don't even tell you- you just turn up to work in the morning and you're told you don't work there anymore. The hours are long and boring, but if say anything at all to anyone you get sacked due to how unhealthy the competition is (no one wants to be the one they get rid of). There are little to no chances of advancing in any position you have. They'll lie about job descriptions and duties or how long the contract is going to be. You can apply to as many jobs as you want on their website but no one will ever get back to you: the only way to do it is to call them everyday for a couple weeks asking if they have a job for you and maybe if they like you/pity you they'll give you a job as a janitor. You'll get judged solely based on looks/nationality and they'll disregard any education or experience you may have.
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Annan, Dumfries and Galloway – 3 May 2018
I found this to be a really fun little temp job. Work was almost too easy at times and you could have a real laugh with some of your co-workers. Because it was an entry-level job you got a real mixed bag of co-workers; some were alright to get along with; some you'd have a great laugh with; and others you'd give a wide berth to even in the day.
The typical day started at 5 A.M [in winter btw] when you got on the bus to travel to Annan. I usually spent this time napping. You'd then arrive on site to be given your job for the day, and at this point you would witness your more troublesome teammates throw a fit because they're not working with their mates or didn't get the job they wanted, and then get screamed at because they want a smoke 3 minutes before work. I actually saw several of them get warnings and then be fired for this, making that a very expensive cigarette. So you'd toil at whatever task you were given and then you'd be free. You could have a good crack on the bus home and you'd typically get in around 5 PM.
The day's enjoyment depended solely on who you were stuck with for the day. I got on with most people pretty well, and we had a great time. But, some people just wanna watch the world burn, and if being a miserable joy-kill is their only way to achieve that, then that's exactly what they'll do.
It's just a shame Pinney's of Annan is set to close. It was really fun, easy cash, albeit a long day.
found it a great place to work was happy with my job
