They found me a job as a welder. I ended up not being paid for a week's work and despite a lot of letters I never received the week's pay I was entitled to. After a long fight I managed to get some money except for 2.5 days but I didn't receive any pay slips or a P45 when I left there.
Pros
None
Cons
Not paid properly. No P45 or wage slips

Where to start? Its hard, fast paced work. This would be ok if it weren't for every other aspect of the job.

Poor money, treated as a disposable worker not as a person, queues at the end of the day (often over 15 minutes and outside in the cold, in what is supposed to be your own time) to get through security. For some reason when they built this multimillion pound state of the art facility they forgot to install a second security scanner...


They will ring you every morning at 9/10am to confirm your shift, which is a lovely wake up call after your 5 hours sleep since going to bed after a night shift at 4am. And if you don't get the call guess what, you won't be working that night. Terrible system.


Avoid if you can.
Pros
Some great people here, students, artists, entrepeneurs, the managment doesnt realise how lucky they are. Free parking.
Cons
Poor money. Hard graft. Poor agency. Suprisingly bad work/life balance for a warehouse job.

Horrible attitude from the conductor. Information from various staff members contradicting the advert and each other whilst I'm in the room. They are script readers, I filled in the form exactly how it asked me to,yet the conductor was adamant that I 'HAD' to fill in these other bits, until I pointed out she was wrong. The conductor was not pleased to be made to look foolish and proceeded to argue with me about my reluctance to fill in the DBS form they provided me, even while I was holding my current and valid DBS obtained the last time I worked at this position. The conductor had no idea how to do their job and was treating me like I was the idiot because they didn't know how to go off script.

The people working there are stuck up. Considering I am a reliable worker I work all the shifts they give they still treat me like nothing. I called once to let them know I cant make it, she was stubborn and and argued over the phone. Rubbish place to work, people don't care about you, Individuals are discriminated and marginalised due to race. So many of these people are racists. THINK TWICE BEFORE WORKING HERE.

Honestly, work staff are reliable and are always helpful as they always reply in quick period of time, always let me know things that i should know and the duration of the job.

They always pay in time and never let me down. Not only this but there are many other things that I could say like the fact that they have an ideal job in mind for you and will help in your decisions.

In all honesty give career link a wide birth. This has nothing to do with the actual places you may end up working (probably not) it's to do with the agency. Don't waste your time and effort with false hopes of employment. You will be told you are starting at a company, to ignore other job offers. Nothing will come of it, all you will get is soon, soon. On the slight chance you do land a job through them you will come to discover that you are not on the agreed salary and it will be subject to review after 12 weeks. If you work 12 weeks you will then be withdrawn from where you were working and replaced with someone else. I know this because it happend to me and a friend. Then when he has done is 12 weeks they will take him off the job and will ring you and ask you to go back and guess what... MINIMUM WAGE so they can pocket the rest. AVOID AVOID AVOID. Try orbital recruitment or proactive personnel i have had a good experience with them.

Consultant rude with a patronizing aggressive tone.
Demanding I forget my other interviews to sign up with them to 'potentially' start this apparent job on Monday.

Nice try, try fooling someone else

The agents are scammers, and will steal your wages. They lie about the rate to get you onto a job, then deny any such agreement or conversation on hourly rate! Beware scott cooper!!! You have been warned!
Cons
Long hours, underpaid.
