Working with Heads not for long time. All seems good, Pay rates is alright. Different shifts provided, just not much jobs at the moment. Was working night shifts in Oldham, job is not difficult at all, easy going and helpful people there. Positive.

I was actually assigned to one of their client companies as a temp worker, not actually at Heads itself. The staff there were helpful and did what they could for the people that they were responsible for, but had little control over availability of work and pay rates, which were determined by the client company. My ratings above relate to Heads, with the exception of Salary/Benefits and Job Security/Advancement, which were outside their control (hence the lower ratings). The pros and cons below relate to the assignment, although Heads do seem to only deal with these types of work.
Paid breaks (except lunchtime)
Temp work at minimum wage with little chance of advancement.

Most of recruitment agency think if they offer you work for a 6.5 p/h its a great offer for you... Sorry but most people in these days can barley survive for that kind money. Don't be surprised if no one will wont to stay in factory or warehouse if you will pay flat rate at minimum wage. Heads Recruitment .. did you try to call them about work ??? You can spend weeks calling to office etc. no answer .. just voice mail. Agency earn money from what we work out in not easy jobs. And its hard for them to answer phone, or replay to email... !
