Temp work (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 May 2017
Temp work, they call me up and send me somewhere shorthanded. I could say yes or no to any job. Everyone is very respectful and professional. Management made a few more little mistakes than I would expect, but nothing was ever an issue.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 January 2017
I liked working here, you are paid every week and must fill out your work hrs on line for pay check that is mailed. This can be a draw back. But they dont take money from employees only hiring company. Steady stream of work
On-call Worker (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 27 June 2016
Throughout the year that I was with Angus, I would receive jobs by phone call and at extremely short notice. A 10am same day contract means a half-day or less depending on travel time.
In all I was offered 4 jobs in 12 months, which represented opportunities, but the employers only wanted someone for the day.
I enjoyed working at the aquarium because I like those kinds of places and always wanted to work in a museum type setting.
I learned how to make coffee drinks with a manual espresso machine, and I learned that I do in fact have great customer service because I like smiling, serving, and I really care enough about what I do, no matter what it is, to learn about the company and it's products, like the ingredients of the baked goods, so that I can be knowledgeable and helpful.
Contract worker (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 6 April 2016
Being a contract worker for Angus one in Vancouver particularly was interesting, and exciting. the opportunities given were never the same. Once you found clients worth working for, you had enough experience to gain more clients per field based off of experience/seniority.
The rates per hour made it that personnal expenses could be covered comfortably while leaving room for living life as it should be lived for work/life balance.
The Agents assigned to each field interest are well placed for the office of Vancouver. I would highly recommend this company based off of my experience.
constant support and opportunity
changing rates per hour/economical levels per season
Various Temporary Administrative Positions (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 December 2013
When they found me work, they did pretty well. I learned that I dislike temporary work. My co-workers were always great and welcoming. Hardest part of the job was for the temp position to finish and having to move on to another place.
Senior Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 25 March 2013
Sadly not a fun place to work. Small family owned private business. Pay is very low in comparison to other agencies and the owner is critical and negative towards the non family staff members. Staff and workers there are the nicest hardworking people that deserve more respect and higher pay. Hardest part of the job is remaining positive in a gossipy back stabbing culture. Most enjoyable part of job is helping candidates find new jobs. No career path available and constant turnover.
