agency treats people like a s**t like a meat, saying they doesnt support modern slavery but treat people even worse than that, demanding money for ages, waiting for bloody 20 pounds for over a month, saying will get the money next week on Friday but never did, been offered higher pay rate on my interview, so i stayed and worked coz Ive been told ill get 12ph instead of 9 ph, swerve on it, not worth your time ppl.

terrible agency, send to work but do not pay do not send payslips, you can not check how the payment was calculated. I worked 4 out of 4 paid for 2-3 days of work explaining that you were not at work or did not sign up on the list. I worked for a rate of 11.73 but holiday paid me 10.28 Total I was not paid for 4 days of work.
The worst had a man from Poland who worked 6-7 days a week on various shifts.

every week he was missing 2-3 days, after 3 months of work the agency did not pay him for 350 hours

TRAFFORD PARK- VNA driver. A terrible place to work. The manager of the night shift is not interested in anything, he introduces his colleagues who sit in the canteen and play on the phones
Pros
-good pay rate
Cons
- the agency doesn't pay for all hours

Good place to look for a job, when they get you a job is not for a day or two. Most of places you will be there for good unless you want something else, its good as you wont havebto worry how many days a week you will work

ideal recruit was a terrible employer - always got the wages wrong, working on broken flt's to target your never going to reach, walkways are not clearly outlined so theirs loads of accidents, the canteen was poor and location of warehouse was in "the sticks". WORK YOU TO THE BONE FOR CHRISTMAS THEN GET RID OF YOU IN FEBRUARY, THEN GIVE YOU BAD REFERENCES SAYING YOU WERE ALWAYS LATE AND NEVER WORKED.

None
Cons
Everything

Such incompetence . They say you accrue 1/2 a day holiday per week. Yet if needed to go hospital,You dont get paid a half day hol pay even if you have the accrued holidays. Turnaround of consultants is ridiculous espec in burnley and mcr office. Constant underpayment of wages of which no matter how many times you get in touch jade will never rectify. Many staff owed hundreds in wages from jan to march accrued holidays as normal. But from end of march to may we didnt accrue any holidays which is wrong when we did all the hours that they were open for.
They never sent proper contracts all were in another companys name! By far worst agency to have ever worked for
Pros
None lied to continously
Cons
Lied to about wages
