Thank you Lucinda!
Lovely Lucinda W. did my interview for Amazon and she couldn't be more helpful and kind to me. Everything was straight forward, communication bang on, I got replies to my emails pretty much instantly. I could understand her on the phone perfectly (I'm horrible at understanding people on the phone, but Lucinda was amazing). Thank you again!

Very rude staff
Very rude staff, conducting telephone “interviews” where questions makes no sense and not willing to explain. I don’t understand how they got the contract with Amazon.

Excellent service by Paul from Poole branch!
I phoned Adecco having seen an advert for a job on indeed that I wanted to know more about. Explained I didn’t have massive amounts of work experience but was asked by the team to send in my CV and someone will give me a call back. Paul gave me a call back minutes later to discuss the role, sent the company I was applying to my CV and arranged a phone interview with them! Throughout the whole process Paul was a massive help but also lovely and genuine. I couldn’t have got the job without such help and I wouldn’t have wanted it had Paul not been so passionate and keen to get me through the process on behalf of the company. Very grateful for the constant help and communication from Adecco!

Complete waste of time.
Waste of time, applied for a job at Amazon, sent in an application, CV etc. Had an email come through Sunday as I was leaving the house. When I got home I seen on the portal it was for an interview/appointment for the following Friday 10am that needed confirming but also said no appointments left!! I understand agencies fill positions quick, some need people asap etc. I didn't realise this was a race, 1st to reply gets an interview. I had an interview/appointment slot, it needed confirmation. Not everyone is sat by the computer 24/7 waiting to reply instantly. At least give people a fair chance to respond. Looks like I had a lucky escape. Definately won't be applying for Amazon or anything via Adecco ever again.

False advertising
I applied with this agency for a job at Amazon, advertised as part time. Which is just what I need. After the application process I attended the interview via phone call. I was then informed that it's a full time, overnight position. And that there was no part time available. After calling them back to ask why the advertised position has suddenly changed, they then said I had opted for full time in my application. After then going back to review my application myself I find that of course I have opted for the part time role ( As it was advertised ). Complete waste of time, give them a miss if you can.

bad experience
A week ago, me and my wife applied together (at the same time) for Chesterfield depot, few days after they called us as normal for completing the forms and identity. We explained them from the firs that we prefer working the same shifts because we have just one car and I'm the one with driving licence and to be scheduled for the same induction They interviewed me first and then scheduled my induction for the next day and I agreed as I explained them again I need to go in the same time as my wife and they said 'yes, no problem' and asked us to agree for what days we want to work and what days to be off' After a day my induction came and I have not attended as my wife haven't got her to and I've emailed and called the explaining this again. After they called me with anger and rudeness in their voices for letting me know they are withdrawing my application and i won't be able to reapply for that job for 3 months as I missed the induction. I called the back for removing all my data (as I completed forms like applying for a president not for a picker/packer) and they told me they can't do it and I should email Amazon as it's not their problem

Gemma Rowe of Newbury branch - disgrace
Gemma Rowe of Newbury branch - never returned calls or provide workwear as promised. Absolute disgrace and due to her historic unprofessional approach she now blocks ME for work!!!! Tried to make official complaint but blocked by her.

Very poor . Full time = Ad hoc basis !!
Never been unemployed before so a newbie at looking for a new job - but I thought I could trust “ full time “ means just that . Not with Adecco it doesn’t. Applied for a “ full time” position . Received an email advising welcome call the following day - that happened & lady was lovely but she said it was only a 9 month contract ( could have been advertised but 9 months was better than nothing ) . Answered all the questions etc , told it was shift work Monday to Thursday but will possibly be offered overtime on the Friday - happy days and was then asked for credentials and photo ( for badge ) and told someone will be in touch within the week and it could be a start date for the following day - yes ???? Got an e nail at 8.15 pm the following day - Saturday night advising there is an immediate the following week but need to do a virtual morning - Sunday morn 10 am .... on this ya not a problem ... it s a full time job ???? Did the call / training( passed ) and was then asked for credentials again ! Waited until Wednesday & e mailed them . No reply . 2 hours later someone else messaged clearly unaware of my email “ Hi are you still interested In working for Amazon “ ( still ! I have just applied ) I replied yes definitely so she called asking if I could do the night shift on Friday ( this is Wednesday ) again I said no problem and was asked again for my credentials & photo ... 3 times now in less than a week ! I said no problem but queried “ shift” as in singular and basically discovered this is not a full time / 9 month contract at all. She said we can t guarantee shifts but if you go in on Friday you may be given some more - it s possible but can t guarantee but will get some work upto Christmas as this coming up to their busy time !!! What a complete and utter farce . If the job is not full time why advertise it is ?? If it is not a 9 month contract why lie and say it is ? They have just wasted their time and mind . Extremely unhappy . Please do not use them , they do not do what they say in the tin.

Must avoid these
Must avoid these! Had a interview on the Friday! She said I passed it and we discussed my hours and what days I started! I even signed the contact of employment between amazon and me then two days later they email me saying I don’t have the job and they not moving forward with my application! How can you offer someone a contact then say they don’t have the job two days later!

Poor service
Applied for a job with amazon through adecco and received a phone call to arrange a phone interview for the next day but the call never came and when I contacted them there was no recollection of an interview even being booked. The lady on the phone wasn’t much help either and told me it wasn’t her office that the phone call came from and I should try again some other time. Very disappointed. Absolutely awful Experience.

Applied for a contact tracer job
Applied for a contact tracer job and passed the interview process. Got an email to say successful and a start date. To my disappointment I was told that as it was home working I needed to have my own IT equipment ????so that job was cancelled. Since then have received numerous emails with different start dates for the same job. I emailed to let them know I don't have my own equipment. No response. A couple of days later the person who sent me the email and whom I subsequently responded to, telephoned me to ask if I was interested in the job. She said she never got my email. I am also receiving emails from someone else asking for my date of birth so that they can put me on the payroll for the job that was cancelled and which I responded to saying there is no job but she still sends these emails ????To summarise, there is a lack of communication between the staff and my advice would be not to take their assignments seriously and pursue any other job offers over Adecco

Incompetent.
Rang my son on Wednesday to offer an interview on Thursday for one of the census jobs. Cancelled it Thursday morning as they won't accept a bank statement from online banking, needed to be a printed one and needed the same day! He told them he doesn't get them with online banking but they were adamant. Utter clowns. Avoid.

Garbage firm, should be banned, they just collect peoples details and do nothing but send you junk mail. Avoid them like the plague. You can get better results without using these leeches.

BIG THUMBS DOWN !
If I could give 0 stars, I would. The kings cross branch staff are beyond horrible! Communication is extremely poor- they don’t respond to emails or calls neither do they return calls. You honestly literally have to chase them up which sometimes can take weeks of constantly calling them then eventually you get lucky if they decide to answer. They “never have any work” but give work to their favourite workers. Danielle Lockyer who unfortunately is the Principal Temp Consultant is very rude and if you’re not careful, you’ll feed into her rudeness and react unprofessionally- she also is constantly busying calls, won’t return calls nor emails. Getting paid through adecco too is a massive challenge so much so that you start to regret ever working! AVOID THIS AGENCY FOR YOUR SANITY BECAUSE IT’S NOT YOU, IT IS DEFINITELY THEM!

Rubbish agency
Rubbish agency. The recruitment agent hardly responds or calls you back. She always blames her equipment not working. She prepares people for interview poorly and did not property set me up or help in the virtual interview call and no idea what she is talking about. Refuses also to give any feedback to candidates. PLESSE avoid this agency. Unless you want to do the agents work for her. Morgan Vinall sort yourself out and do your job rather than candidates do it for you !!!

Horrific
The worst company I have dealt with. Hire in mass, then lie to you to say they overbooked candidates for the available roles. I know 8 people who share my experience with Adecco. A sham!! Find it disgusting how they can promise people jobs at a time like this and then simply lie in an email, stating I had not replied to an email and call that I never received! They provided times and dates of such communication but trust me I cross referenced these with my records and no such calls and emails existed... Their interview was a joke too... Called me 5 hours late... Cannot stress enough how poor dealing with Adecco was!
