Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Ipswich – 5 November 2018
Only seem to ever have 2 companies that they offer agency staff over to. Say permanent work is possible but it’s not because of what the companies have to pay best connection for us?! Like we’re owned. No unsocial ale hours pay when working 1-9am you kind of expect it. Offer job vacancies but aren’t available once you sign up. Which is what they need sign ups that’s their bonus money.
Long hours no social life and apparently “owned” and never will you get a full time job out of it
I was registered to this agency... So at first, why they surprised me, that they have find a job very fast, next day I was going to work, but they send people to very hard workplaces, work for few days and i told that the job was too hard for me, and they didind call for me anymore

I was told from day 1 the job role and pay rate which was spot on and true to there word, the young lady that ive dealt with since i joined the BestConnection i can honestly say that its a pleasure to deal with her and restores my faith in agency work i could not ask for more.

This is another example of a company who put pressure on you without the relevant training, the senior management throw targets at you when they know themselves these are unrealistic, fake adverts and useless staff.

I did write a review 2 weeks ago and was not put up on this site they were ok for a start with my first 2 assignments which were only short ones , I have tried to apply for several more jobs with this company since and have been totally ignored i.e texts emails and phone calls ? I applied for a 7.5 ton driving job which I have Didgi card and cpc card . I have just been ignored , I don't think this crowd deserve people to apply for work on there site . I wont bother with them again , just rude people who proberly don't have any driving tickets at all but think they are better than you
I contacted Best Connection for a 7.5t driver job and after a short interview in Ipswich I got offered a job on the same day with a respectable logistics company. Since then I have been fully employed by the same company and enjoy every minute of my job. Best connection in Ipswich have been very professional and always available to answer and resolve any issues I wasn’t sure about. An excellent starting point to get your foot through the door with reputable companies offering real career prospects.
I couldn't recommend this agency enough, I've been with best Connection for a over a year now and never have they failed to get me work, even at the very last minute. The team in the office are extremely help and I don't feel like I'm being treated as just a number. Would highly recommend using this agency if you are ever stuck for work!
Good wages, good communication, excellent office staff

You will get laid off you will not get paid properly no need to correct mistakes made on their behalf sent to terrible assignments with complete lack of health and safety never paid on time or correct amount.
HGV Class 2 Driver (Former Employee) – Newport, Newport – 21 July 2018
As an agency there fine pay was always on time and correct but the companies they cover are terrible expect you to drive lorry’s that ain’t fit for the road or they give you a work load that needs a fork lift and you have to handball the work off. Your basically the gofor at companies and give you the work there own drivers won’t do
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – West Bromwich, West Midlands – 4 July 2018
Worked with the Best Connection Group for over a year and a half now as part time student and on a temporary full time basis, all staff members in the office are highly understanding and supportive throughout, job opportunities arise on a regular basis and the ability to work in a range of different settings and job roles gives good experience in warehouse and admin sector

I worked for best connection for a long time until I found a permanent position The company is very good and always offered me work I had the best job ever for 6-8 month which one through best connection
They mixed up my working hours all the time. They was keep forgeting to pay me for my overtime. And when they finally remembered to do it they added to the normal hours of work and not as overtime. Not bothered to contact them anymore. The payslip was never on time and almost each time something was wrong with the money. They are trying to look helpfull but actually they don't care about people. It's all about agency and nothing for the workers. Very dissapointed.
Not too many pros
You have to take extra care regarding the hours you are working to be sure you are getting paid!
It was different all the time and very exhuasting as early hours to start work, i learned how to take apart air conditioners from toshiba, I have been a removal man or 'driver's mate' which i have enjoyed and the warehousing was good fun too.
