It started off well working as a security guard but when I had to be put in charge because one of the staff left and then it became difficult because then stuff came to site and started doing their own stuff and not doing the job they're supposed to. I ended up having more people gone them people staying to do the job then we ended up losing the sight but we worked on and I ended up leaving work because it wasn't working out well.
Pros
Lot's of hours
Cons
Really bad pay

The job itself was not that bad but was very repetitive as I worked at Hermes for Cordant People. If there was a problem, for example, when clocking in for the shift and your name isn't on the list, cordant people do not care and will just send you home. When trying to call them, they do not answer and might text you the next day or not at all.
There is no job security at all as you could just be sent home if there are too many people for that shift.

When working in the warehouse at Hermes most of the managers and staff do not speak English and you would be shouted at and told that you would be sent home if you do not do enough parcels per hour.
Pros
30 minute breaks and good pay
Cons
Long hours, very poor management

Some questions here are not relevant as Cordant People are a agency placing you in work. I cannot fault the way my interview was handled the usual paperwork to complete but I think better than online registration such as PMP.
I applied for temp work working for Amazon Cleaning within the huge Swansea Amazon. Mind numbingly boring doing the same on 12 hour shifts but

I worked for Cordant people and they are a great company! If I had any problems they were always there to talk through them and if they could help in anyway possible they would.

Decent agency, they find work for you, it's what they do. You will find them on the phone and you will get paid on time. The kind of work you get and the people you end up working with have more to do with timing and luck. It's a rough world out there, you'll be yet another number or yer another face, up to your to survive in it.

I signed up with Cordant People back in January. When I first went there I liked how they didn't promise me the world or promise positions that didn't exist.

I have got a bit of work out of this agency but the places they send you to have very low pay and there isn't much job security. The communication is not the best either. I think once they send you out there to wherever you need to go, that's it, from there you need to figure things out for yourself.


I would recommend giving Cordant People a chance though, they might find you some work.

At first they lead you into thinking there’s plenty of work. But there’s not, they pay the worst out of all agencies.
And they screw you over when leaving. You have to constantly chase them up. But all you get is excuse after excuse.

My advice don’t work for them

Pay is min rate but the consultants are great and keep communications open. They always try to get you out on assignment, i highly reccomend this agency whilst temping.

Don't know what people are paid for in the offices? Basically it's do it yourself, sort your own p45, holidays and any other problem you have, lazy. Very bad communication problems with these. Avoid like the plague.

No typical day at work; assignments were based on what I already knew; management was reasonable; workplace culture on assignments were mixed; the hardest part of the job was getting sense out of client regarding whether required next week or not; most enjoyable part of job was being left to get on with assignment (unless there was a problem).

Avoid this agency by all means possible was meant to start on the 20th of January but due to not enough flt experience for a job at a warehouse in Swansea was told couldn't give me a job but then was asked to a week Monday ago and due to me having a upset stomach through the night this Tuesday had a phone Wednesday to say my assignment was terminated which I seriously find awful how they can treat agency people like that
