Productive workplace
I really like working as a Credit Control Administrator, because no day is the same. Important is to pay attention to details, to be punctual and think outside the box.
The hardest part is that sometimes is very stressful and I am overwhelmed by work and you can't predict how your day will look like, but I like my job and I really enjoy the time when I resolve the issue.

Not a pleasant place to work
I feel that the management within this company are inconsiderate and dictate rather than lead and motivate. I am thankful for the experience but I would never work there again.

Most unprofessional manager I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Some wonderful kind hearted souls there, as well as some vindictive sadistic characters too. Unfortunately I found my way onto the team with a terrible manager who had no patience what so ever. Fake people & unnerving atmosphere, with backstabbers behind every corner; which is to be expected in a corporate office in London. You could have a great base here if you find yourself with the right support and team, but roll the wrong dice... you'll be sorry.

Contracted hours are 8:30 - 18:00, but your expected to work until 8:00 am 6:30pm minimum with no overtime. Leaving or arriving at your contracted times is hugely frowned upon. You don't get breaks, except for a break to go and purchase food, which you are then expected to eat at the desk.
Cons
Long hours, Short/ 0 lunch breaks, Poor management

Beware - con merchants
BEWARE - CON MERCHANTS - outright take money you are legally entitled to and then flatly deny (several times) that is what they are doing.

Taking your holiday pay under the guise of rolled up holiday pay (they deny this but essentially that is exactly what they are doing), after repeated denials on the phone to me that they were doing this, it took me threatening to contact the Citizen's Advice Bureau with my pay slips and going to HR for the company I was working for until they finally reimbursed me my legally entitled holiday pay but only after having the nerve to complain to me that I was making THEM look bad to their client!


ROLLED UP HOLIDAY PAY is morally wrong and illegal. They know this but knowingly operate under the pretence that if only a small proportion of their work staff challenge them, they are still making a killing financially by essentially picking on the vulnerable in society: people working on low pay, with little work rights until they are taken on permanently by the company they are temping for, to leech off their work staffs legally entitled holiday pay which means should you ever require a day off work, it goes unpaid, because Venn Group see fit to TAKE the money YOU are entitled to, to line THEIR pockets.


DO NOT ACCEPT THIS, know your rights, challenge them and take legal advice from the HR company you are working for and then report them to the ombudsman.

The Culture at Venn Group isn't what I would describe as balanced. It may be a reflection of my working style compared to the company's, I don't believe it was a good match.

Long hours, little pay
Contracted hours are 8:30 - 18:00, but EXPECTED to work from latest 8am to 18:30 earliest with no overtime. Leaving/arriving "on time" is hugely frowned upon. No actual breaks, expected to eat at the desk.

Very "laddish" environment and culture


High earning potential if you're willing to sell your soul to the devil

Pays the least out of all agency’s
Venn themselves were ok,when I joined I didn’t contact the office much pay is confusing I received less than I was told and the other £1 was my own holiday pay, bit confusing but basically you don’t get holiday pay if you earn £9 an hour your paying for your own holidays. I was offered £10 an hour but that included holiday pay, not an honest company.
Didn’t deliver on pay the job was a disaster but can’t blame Venn for that.

I wouldn’t use them again didn’t deliver on pay and we’re dishonest.
Pros
Erm

An enthusiastic work place
An enthusiastic workplace for graduates looking to get their foot in the door of recruitment before moving on to better things. Good unit nights out but the employees are quite cliquey

Rewards for your hardwork
Having worked at Venn Group for a while I have found their outlook to be supportive to clients, candidates and their internal staff. The team environment fosters an atmosphere that encourages working together, so the highs and lows of recruitment are lessened by the people around you.
Pros
Training, support
Cons
You need determination

Hardworking and enjoyable company to work for
Venn Group was a great company to work for. The management and working environment made this position an enjoyable and motivating job role - however, the hours were very long and the commute to work made this unmanageable for me personally. The company offered great benefits and a team based commission structure.

A great exposure to sales, but not a great atmosphere
My first role out of college. Working at Venn Group gave me fantastic training in the sales environment and taught me the skills I use to this day. However the recruitment company atmosphere was not for me and I soon found myself looking for opportunities outside of this industry.
