I worked at IntaPeople full-time (Less than a year)
We were bought food sometimes. Despite issues, Phil Handley is lovely and Some members of the team were very supportive.
Long working hours under the delusion hard work will pay off, and there is an expectation that you will work past 5:45 every night- if anything if you don't they doubt your commitment. And you are expected to be in early too. In fairness they do tell you it won't be a 9-5 job, but you will have absolutely no work life balance.
Rather than investing in people, after a bit of time they decide to let you go with no notice, and then hire new people even though apparently they can't afford to keep you.
Disorganised training scheme and a lack of training in really important matters such as visas which can lead to some very awkward conversations.
Unrealistic expectations for finding candidates and if candidates don't take jobs, you are made to feel like a failure and that you hadn't done enough.
Still expected to cold call a number of companies even though we are told time and time again that cold calling doesn't work and that companies were sick of us.
Expected to mislead candidates in order to secure a contract, misleading them of the process.
I now know why they have such a high turnover rate, and when you join some members of the team will make you feel uncomfortable and be rude to you as they know its an ever revolving door.
Literally no benefits. Basic pay
Advice to Management
Sort out the training scheme, be realistic with expectations. Be honest if someone is underperforming rather than just getting rid of them.
