I had 9 mths work thru this agency and they don't pay u a decent wage for all the hard graft that u put in, however I strongly believe that much of this is down to money loving companies who don't appreciate good loyal workers!...Poor communication wiv this agency at times!
Pros
Long term work plus Saturdays
Cons
Poor pay + communication!

I worked there and they was not friendly and the company is all about money they didn't teach me properly plus they are all foreign so you cant understand what there saying. Really don't recommend this job at all and it is not clean, only the canteen is clean. Also they say when you apply its ready meals its not its sushi fish.

Can't say much wrong about them,only worked a week as I quickly realised nights was not my thing, however as disappointed as they were they still paid me the agreed rate and on time which I was well happy with as I half expected to be messed around, but to their credit they were spot on.
Pros
A honest agency
Cons

I have been dealing with Career Makers for approximately 3 years, both as a candidate and a client. Whilst in between roles, I was inducted and taken onto their books, the experience was easy and slick, I was dealt with in a respectful and professional manner. Some will say that was because I had been a contract giver in the past however, I witnessed the same interaction with other candidates.
As a client of theirs they also showcase a professionalism that has won my business again, in fact we are about to sign a 24 month exclusivity deal.

Business relationships in this field of operation can be difficult to forge and manage, in my experience Career Makers have always listened to my exact requirements and tried to deliver. When my expectation was not met they moved swiftly to rectify the issue.


Agencies get a significant amount of poor press and in some cases that is deserved, in my experience of Career Makers they go the extra mile, listen intently to their customers requirements and just ''do what it says on the tin'' .


I highly recommend the whole team and, if the performance is maintained at the level it is, I would find it extremely difficult to move away from them.


If you are looking for work - give them a call, if you are serious about working for them - they will in turn work hard for you.


If you are looking for staff at a fair price with an agency that invests time and energy in you as a client - look no further.


Operations Manager North West Region.
Pros
Professional and they listen.

I was told I had a job so I went to another city for a few days work I went in one day and waited over 6 hours
To start a shift, I advised the company I was going home as I couldn’t wait to work any longer I was told I could come back the next day and be paid the full amount, I left the agency shortly and had to call over 20 times to be told I won’t be paid for my hours as the agency has no record of me. The company is a joke and basically illegal I don’t even care about the money I just don’t like people who use others for there own gain

It's about time somebody stepped in and shut these robbing cowboys down...... They pay Sometimes on a Monday instead of a Friday (that's if you get paid). They lie to you regarding the rates. If you ring them and complain they just give you abuse over the phone.

Really don't understand how this agency manages to make money other than from probably selling customers personal information on no doubt as you have to go into their office's to sign up through a lengthy unessarry process which no jobs ever get offered to you.
Something's not right about this company!
Pros
Going elsewhere.
Cons
Waste of air used talking to them.

I contacted these idiots a couple of months ago as they were advertising painting works but on a price work basis and I informed them that agencies do hourly rates! My comments went straight over their thick heads! Avoid!
