Excellent people, long hours, little to no reward and terrible pay and benefits.

I worked at Pertemps full-time for more than a year

Pros

The people are fantastic. It is a place that catches lots of people when they are on the up.

You gain a varied skillset and are given the chance to try lots of things.

Cons

Low salaries and bonuses. The salary is on average £5,000-£8,000 lower than market rate.
Non existent training.
Terrible work life balance because instead of hiring enough people to do the work well they hire bare bones with no experience give minimal training so that they are cheap.
Senior managers are told to not tell other employees about schemes such as shares etc.
Every year you work you gain a full day of holiday up to a certain point however in your last year your holiday is calculated the same as your very first year regardless the blood,sweat, and tears have gone into the company.
Company wide survey published in the newsletter mentioned all of the above and more yet the response from head office is looks at the results we have such nice people here, rather than address the negative points.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff.
Pay people what they deserve.
Invest training into your staff.
Reward hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build the company allowing alot more opportunities to arise

    Staff at pertemps to be slightly more welcome as some days you can walk in and it
    can be dead silent which will make some people walk straight back out.
