Diamond review  Pro's and Con's of Temping.

Advantages: Flexibiltiy. Better rates of pay. Less responsibility. More variety.
Disadvantages: Some resentment on placement. Non-refund of petrol/police check costs. Office Politics and dissorganisation.

After reading about her experiences I decided I should give mine in contrast. BS are a national recruitment agency and with 55 locations across the country you can find them on most high streets. I have been working for BS Social Care on a Part...

Review of Member Advice on Working for an Agency

Temping - Up Your Street?

Advantages: Friendly staff, actually gave me work (unlike some temp agencies)
Disadvantages: Took some time to call me with work - not great for students wanting holiday work, they'd be back at uni! Or for anyone who needs money quickly.!

...Over a year ago, I had just returned from my gap year, and was very, very poor. I decided to sign up with some temping agencies, while I searched for a permanent post. *Yes, I know, it took me long enough to get around to writing this review - I've only just discovered that Ciao includes recruitment agencies!* I temped for a few months with another agency, which stopped giving me work. So I...
