Honestly dont even waste your time.. cant even type out an honest job description.. job description states no experiance needed, get there and they tell me they are only recruiting people with certificates and will put me on a list for other jobs.. offer me another job, arrive at the destination to be told they had already sent another worker withoit telling me.. then mock me for turning up.
Pros
Free water in the office
Cons
Taken for a fool and mocked

Give you week of shifts to begin with. Then drop you to 2 a week. Constantly taking people on to keep books full. Once new people start your shifts drop sometimes no work for two weeks. Only guarantee work if factory like you and they can request you for shifts. But westray don't like that as the longer you been there your wage goes up.

Don’t bother working with these. They’ll break your trust and twist their wrongdoings around into you. The work isn’t permanent and their contracts are often a lot shorter than they claim to be. Half way through, they company has a ‘restructure’ or something and you’re out. Issues with the employer go unheard until you are sacked or you quit. Go elsewhere for a poor wage.

Was offered a four week placement with a view to it becoming permanent but at the end of the third week they phoned me as I was driving home. When I got home I called them back and was told the job had finished. I'd enjoyed the work I was doing, the shift was 0700hrs - 1500hrs and nothing was hard. I got on with everyone I worked with and I was appreciated by the Company, They were sure I would be taken on permanently. Westray said they would keep my details on the 'available' board but you never hear from then. Work doesn't just 'dry up' like that, it's clear they're a bunch of liars but to save embarrassment I won't 'name names.'
Pros
Work was easy, nothing I hadn't done before and the shift was up to me (7 till 3 or 8 till 4)
Cons
Bunch of liars in the Agency

Terrible recruitment company- staff send out a cv without asking first, staff also make false promises about FAKE roles. Look for more of a professional company if you are looking to work with a recruitment agency. Payroll -can’t get right Staff-rude

where to start.......the agency have no organisation and often ring at short notice for shifts, and theres no guarantee of shifts for the week. even though i was told during the induction that work would often be available, i found myself working only one or two shifts per week on minimum wage which is just not sustainable if you have bills. turning down work is frowned upon and you can expect less hours the following week however with such short notice given to work, you shouldn't be expected to be free 24/7. whilst working in the factory, i often found myself stacking boxes for the majority of my shifts, which puts a huge strain on your back and is physically exhausting trying to keep up with the line while the staff are seemingly doing nothing. Id advise anyone looking for work to look at any other alternatives as theres much better out there.
Pros
none
Cons
too many to list

Normally they phone me up to tell me there's work and are u available now to do so some times it was too far away for me some of the working places but I worked the place near me when they where available. I turn up wait a the gate or phone the reception to open the gate then sign in I would then go to the see where I was in the shift sheet and then go to the line that I was on the sheet. I would be checking for cartons that been tiered or caps dint get glued properly checking the best before date was on cartons and packaging. I learnt what to do when the machine was not working properly and fixing it my self if could not do it I would ask the lad on the top of the line or get a fitter to sorts it was bad. I through the manage was really good they where help and polite. The hardest thing was cleaning the drains. The most enjoyable thing was talking to people getting the products out on time and hitting goals.
Pros
3 breaks
Cons
normal shift 8 hours or overtime or someone was ill 12 hours
