Kitchen porter
I have been on and off with travail for these last 10 years. Anytime you want a job, they will help you to get one. The BEST. The staff are friendly, helpful and very honest. Basically you need the money, they will find you work and just do the job to the best of your ability.

Avoid at all costs
I left a long term job to join this company and was treated awfully by all members of staff in the office. I have never been made to feel so irrelevant at a work place.

Rubbish
Worked for these on several occasions, last time I had illness issues. Travail told the company to get rid of me, that they would replace me. I have been fighting cancer since, yet the employer decided to bad mouth me to other agencies. Two years later travail are still looking for replacement. Don't believe this company their advertising for, is a family run friendly company

Comment – 17 December 2018
We don't recognise this scenario at all ! We have successfully recruited for a variety of machinist positions in the locality - we are very good at doing this! If a Company need a worker to work so they can meet production targets and deadlines, a vacancy work station is no good to them? It is our responsibility to fill that empty work station when asked to do so, so companies can meet their objectives. This is how temporary work opportunities often come about...!

It sounds as though a company you worked at are, in your opinion, bad mouthing you. What does this have to do with Travail? We would suggest you get some advice in that matter, and present your evidence.


We have no vacancies older than 3 months on our books - so again your comments seem a little confused here? We are very good at filling vacancies!


We don't understand your last issue, we would advertise what we consider to be factual and true - we are aware of our duties to maintain accuracy and legal compliance, after 40+ years of doing the job.

Unexpected opportunity
I was given an opportunity for a great short term position, which worked well for myself, after having just been made redundant from a previous job. The recruitment process was easy, and staff were very friendly and supportive. Would recommend to sign up with Travail.

Temp Work.
Did some retail work for these guys – assignment briefing was clear with loads on information on which told me what to wear, who to report to and sat nav information so I could find the place, it even told me where the nearest shop was to get lunch! They rang me to check I had arrived on site safely on day one and the girls called me again when I finished the two day booking to make sure it had gone ok – my wages were paid on time. Will defiantly do some more work for them.
Pros
Clear instructions. Paid on time and correctly.
Cons
Only temporary work.

Work Experience
I worked in the Doncaster office on a week’s work experience – the office staff were lovely and friendly to me and they were with all of the people that came in looking for work. The girls in the office really tried hard to find as many people jobs as possible and they had a smile for everyone that came through the door. I enjoyed working here – it was busy I learned a lot.
It was dress down day on a Friday which I loved!
Pros
Dress down Friday!
Cons
Only 1 week

Do not work for this agency
DO NOT GO TO THIS AGENCY. They're the worst kind of people you could ever deal with. They speak down to you on the phone, ridiculously rude and not polite atall. They never ring back when they say they're going to. They didn't bother to tell me I'd lost my job for 5 days until I actually rang them to find out. They don't pay you holiday pay when you request it and try blame it on you. If you ever get ill or need time off they don't bring you in for a few days after and when you repeatedly tell them you have bills and food to pay for they don't care. They have no sympathy if your family are rushed to hospital and make you feel guilty for having time off for seeing them. I'm going to citizens advice on these people as it's totally not on the way they treat people and action needs to be taken.
Pros
None
Cons
Rude and unprofessional
