Great for long term temp work

They 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! I thought, hmm, Adecco, they're a top name in recruitment, I bet they could help me find work. How...

First of all, if you have come into this site you will think mmm odd title, it has got nothing to do with us, but it has and if you read on and read through this op, you will see as a community how you made me take a long look at myself and re evaluate things.

Fast turnaround, helpful and efficient.

Once you're in, don't expect much help.

My experiences with this agency, who I have worked for over the last ten months, have been widely variable. I went to them looking for temporary work, I was aware that my time living in Cardiff was likely to be short and I didn't want to take a permanent job. Adecco was one of a half dozen...

Not really that competent

quick 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...

Limited by job availability

Employment agencies - have their uses (obviously!) but can also be a real pain. Having been a student I went to several agencies for temping work in the holidays and had mixed results. I found it infuriating to have spent time going through all the registration tests, procedures and paperwork...

Lots of branches throughout London

Like any agency, may not guarantee constant work

I used the Adecco branch in Hammersmith, London, from August of last year to July of this year for temporary work. They offer work in many sectors, with permanent and temporary contracts. I was down for office, admin and banking on their books. After an initial assessment test on the p.c's...

“My Adecco experience”

published 10/02/2001

friendly, speedy service

misleading job descriptions

I work as a temp quite often and I have noticed that standards do vary. I turned to Adecco when I wanted to find a job locally rather than in London. They offered me a position they said was very similar to the position I had just left (Data Entry Clerk, Accounts) and I happily accepted. When I...

“Thumbs up for Addecco”

published 31/01/2001

Extremley helpful, lots of bookings to choose from

Haven't found any yet!

In my vast experience with temp agencies (will I ever get myself a permanent job!?) Adecco comes up top. The friendly atmosphere in the office makes you relaxed as soon as you walk through the door. The staff are very welcoming and very easy to get on with. During my initial interview and...

I registered with Adecco on the high street a couple of months ago. I spent many lunch hours in their plush offices with various different recruitment consultants. I registered via the computer, did a typing test and even a short psychometric test. Unfortunately, I never heard from them for weeks...

Not for me

published 04/07/2008

Adecco is the worst agency I have worked with in the last 12 years. After months of trying to get paid, I have emailed every email address I could find to adecco world wide. I have had no response from any one. I have told them I will post reviews about them if the don't respond, but they just can't be bothered. I have directed email to their press departments and CEO's but nothing. I have told them I don't want my payment anymore, but would prefer to post my experience about them instead. If you care about your hard earned money then keep clear of this agency, because it is rubbish.

Temporary jobs has advantages, it does not require your full time and it makes you versatile because of different jobs that you will have. Based on my experience, I have applied to some temp agencies, and, like applying for a work, I encountered examinations, and interviews, they also made me wait for long hours. I have also tried applying at Integrity Staffing Solutions and they have a very good rules and regulations. They made sure that I understand everything, and made sure that I have the right tep jobs based on my qualifications. If you are interested to inquire at Integrity Staffing Solutions, their site is http://www.integritystaffing.com
