vh review. Sorry to see you had to go down this route! I was on JSA 6 years ago for 6+ months and found it somewhat soul destroying, it looks like they've made it harder to be on JSA now too! I was actively discouraged form voluntary work and heavily penalised for some bank work I'd managed to secure, it was not a fun experience. My CV was butchered and full of spelling errors and sentences that made no sense after they finished with it. I was penalised for refusing to apply for a jobs that would have ended up with me taking out loans just to get to work (all £80pw apprenticeships in a city a train ride away where daily travel costs would be £10+ per day for train and bus). Horrid experience! by Kadini
Must admit that my own limited experience of their staff was terrible....I was incensed by a young, very up herself woman who thought she ruled the world and everything in it. Brill review! by CelticSoulSister

The DevilI is no Angel but I have a halo now and then
Review of Office Angels Recruitment by thedevilinme

Advantages: Less Eastern Europeans
Disadvantages: Selective

To experience the real EU positives and negatives towards Britain you need to try and get work from - or work for - an employment agency. The industrial ones are packed full of Eastern Europeans here and so are the factory floors they fill. If you are Bri ... Read review

CRONE CORKHILL - CHARLENE SIMPSON - CAUSTIC INDIVIDUAL
Review of Crone Corkhill Recruitment by ROSIE733

Advantages: NONE -DIRE
Disadvantages: RUDE, NASTY, UNPLEASANT CAUSTIC EMPLOYEES AT CRONE CORKHILL

Haven't been here for a while but in the reviewer's defence, others have named individual employees, so the reviewer has just done what others have done. Incidentally, libel and defamation are very hard to prove and I suspect the reviewer is telling the truth as He/she sees it. So damn near impossible to prove. With regard to it being a rant. I would probably be ranting if a letter was sent to my place of work rather than my home. I mean, how did that happen exactly. See? I saw a story, so it may be a rant but you get the gist. I would advise the original writer to calm down before writing reviews. And that capitals are hard to look at but other than that, as I have experienced the lack of professionalism of this company in the last 12 months I would assess this as fair based on what the reviewer has experienced. by willow74

Sadly the people who work for these companies do tend to behave as if they're the experts in the field when they are actually far from it. If you send your CV to half a dozen different agencies you'll find they will all give you differing advice as to what to include but at least their advice will be free. by anonymili
