Agencies don't seem to like students!

AdvantagesGreat for long term temp work

DisadvantagesThey don't like students!

"Ok, I'm not saying all Adecco offices are this bad, I'm sure most are really great and helpful, but the one I went to this summer to try and find work over the university summer holiday was rubbish!

Temporary jobs very spontaneous

Disadvantagesquick offers

"Hi, I just saw that here are already several opinions on the temporary job agency addeco. However, I was gaining some experiences with them within the last month and would like you to read my opinion and experiences. When I started looking for a temporary job I just went into the centre of Lougborough with my CV in my pocket to look out for agencies. The first one I saw was Addecco. My first impression was quite good. There was a nice woman ..." Read review
