Rubbish agency. They were arrogant and had an attitude about them. Waited for nearly three months until they telephoned me on a Sunday afternoon wanting me to do an afternoon shift at a restaurant. The restaurant they sent me to was crawling with rats, flies, cockroaches, etc. I complained about the hygiene to my supervisor after working there for four weeks on all sorts of unsocial hours. I never said anything earlier as I really needed the money. The manager and staff at the restaurant in question were arrogant and aloof, and for the hours I worked I wasn't being correctly paid.
After I made my complaint Nelson telephoned me telling me not to go to the job as it was finished, just as I was on my way to work. I went to the agency and they pretty much blanked me about the reason the job ended and didn't want to know about the shortfall in my wages.


Avoid this agency at all costs, they will treat you like rubbish and send you to rubbish places to work.

Applied for a job on indeed and received a reply from this agency. I was not actually working for NRS but for another agency based onsite (was never informed of this prior to starting work with their client).
During my second shift with the client I was sent home for wearing a wrist watch in the warehouse, even though I wore one on my first day and nobody said anything (NEVER TOLD ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO WEAR ONE DURING INDUCTION).

Contacted the agency to let them know and they weren't interested.

Nelson Receuitment Services as an agency is really helpful, people working there are very nice and friendly. They always had time to speak about anything I called them for and they always sorted everything out.

After I moved to Birmingham I needed a job to tide me over whilst I looked for something more along the lines I normally have. NRS took me on as a temp driver and placed me in a local auction house driving cars.
The guys at NRS are decent, friendly and easy to get on with. The job is a fun job as well. The only downside is the total lack of pay as it is the minimum wage. But whilst you look for a proper job, its fine.
Pros
You do get paid
Cons
But not a lot
