    I have been working at Office Angels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They got me a job very quickly

    Cons

    They are very unorganised, lose things, can be rather harsh and rude if you're not happy with your placement (unprofessional)

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with better spelling/grammar

    Training courses provided are excellent Excellent Christmas party and social activities

    I worked at Office Angels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly team, became good work contacts. Loyal to long term temporary staff. Work placements were suitable for what I was looking for and they always did their best for me even when not much work locally.

    Cons

    Timesheets are still being requested by fax machine, it really should be online like most other agencies. There is very little in the way of securing part time positions, which I now need, almost all roles are full time 5 days per week and they didn't seem able to negotiate with companies much flexibility even though my skills and expertise are high.

    Pros

    It's well run- you have face-to-face contact with those responsible for getting you work. There are good benefits such as holiday pay, free Friday lunch, travel expenses (although often this works out more expensive than paying yourself) and of course, a great variety in the different places you could be working from week to week.

    Cons

    After working on/off for Office Angels for 5 years, I was still on the same hourly rate and no matter how many times I requested an increase, I was rarely offered any jobs paying more. The work itself was often mind-numbingly dull- I was just told to sit and wait for the phone to ring on numerous occasions. In the last few years, the work became fairly sporadic too, I would just get a booking here or there, which was frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    On more than one occasion I was offered a new booking when I was already working- there was some miscommunication in the office.
