After being offered employment by this company and sending all details of my previous employment etc, I was offered a start date and then not contacted again with any job details or work address. The only response I had was that they was in a meeting. I have been treated unfairly by this company and would advise everyone to stay away as they are an untrustworthy company.

They do not pay on time and blame it on "natural events"!!!Every week there's extra problem with payments.Never paid correctly.Never again!I don't understand that anyone could rate this agency five stars.

Hi,

This is not our standard procedure and I would be keen to investigate the reason for the payment problems. It is essential that we always pay everyone who follows our procedures on-time and commit to providing a always-paid service where possible.


Could you please give us a email to bristol@darcyassociates.co.uk outlining your issues so we can investigate and provide a compensation for any problems that you may have encountered?

I can work at a variety of different companies from driving cars and vans through an auction to 7.5 tonne driving, I also have driven counterbalance forklift trucks for various production, warehouse and merchant companies.

The work is fun and varied and I have gained much experience, my co-workers have been friendly and helpful so I have enjoyed getting up and going to work, the only hard part I can think of is trying to find vehicles that have not been located properly ( which is rare ).


Best agency i have ever worked for.
Pros
Everything
Cons
nothing

Hi,

It is very sad to see such a negative review on our business.

Would you please give us a call to discuss and ask to speak to a director?


One of our most important goals is to pay people correctly for work completed.

It would be good to investigate this and resolve with you.


Thanking you,


Senior Management Team

Genuinely a good agency. Flexible on umbrella companies and the office guys seem to just say it as it is regarding durations and scope of work.

Every agency has their ups and downs and sometimes the guys can be hard to get hold of but the projects they get are genuinely good and they all seem a nice bunch.
Pros
Good hours, no payment problems
