That is very disappointing news but nonethelss insightful insider knowledge which is incredibly important for a reputable agency such as Hayes. I hope their senior managers read this site and take appropriate action. I was actually considering applying for a post advertised by Hayes but on principle now question whether I want to be associated with such an agency. Whilst I believe there are two sides to every story and certainly yours beggars belief, I am aware of how a focus on targets and profits sometime promote cutting corners to create a less efficient workforce not to mention a prime breeding ground for developing a culture of bullying. Not acceptable in my book but who in Hayes will take notice and actually do something about this appalling practice.

Totally agree with you they are by far the worst recruitment agency out there in the market place and I would advise any potential candidates not to register with them and any potential employers to stay well clear and use a other recruitment company. Totally untrustworthy and not fit for purpose!!!

The agents hoard CVs but do not have courtesy to follow up or acknowledge. Worst service ever. Anybody from academic research background should not use them. Its better applying to the organisation directly thus cutting the % profit for middle man like Hays.

there's not much work and the rates are poor compared to other agencies at £11 to £12 phr. worked for this company at dundee collage and dunblane m&s, about 5 weeks work in 4 years does not pay the bills, offered other jobs labouring but lack of information on all jobs. where ? doing what ? working for who ? what does the job involve ? every thing is a top secret to stop other agencies poaching there work i suppose
