Official response from Aplin

13 December 2021
We’re sorry to hear that David Aplin Group was unable to place you with your credentials and experience. We receive a large number of applications, and our clients have very specific requirements. We appreciate your interest and that you took the time to send us an application and provide your feedback on the process.

They do not get back to you.

I have been waiting a couple weeks now for a call back or even a simple reply via email. I have reached out to two people and nothing back yet. A little disappointing.

Best of the best.

Quality company with a great working environment. While the job is stressful, management is good about not micro-managing and trusting their employees to get things done. Feels more like a family environment than a work environment. Love working here. Truly the gold standard.

Professional and Engaging environment

The leadership team is very decicated to the success of the employees. The training is excellent. The company mission and culture is moralistic. The consultant will be on the phone all day and also connecting via email to candidates and clients. The day is very busy and requires a lot of mental energy to communicate. This job is for a talkative, energetic and driven person. There are many goals to meet and the reqards are excellent as you can earn a lot of money year by year.

Misleading and typical placement agency

They reached out to me for an opportunity based on my experience. I provided and they seen all my credentials and profile of my background. However, when they recommended a job for me they didn't have the full information to the actual role and what was to be expected?. Nevertheless I took the role and was misleading and unclear. They just care if they get paid and dont care what happens to you.

Just a number

They care very little about their temporary staff pool, and play favourites with family and friends. Placements are often not what you think they are. I was sent to a job beyond my qualifications, and when I called in with my concerns, I was told to do the job or expect no further placements. They pay the lowest of all placements agencies i have worked with, and get mad when you turn down work. Would never work with them again.

They offer a variety of places to work and you get great experience. They are supportive and very helpful in placing you at locations and companies that match your experience.

Flexible work, great for income while job hunting

I have had exceptional temporary assignments with David Aplin in the past two years. This is a professional agency that has built a very good reputation by sticking to a principled business approach. Highly recommended.

Its a placement agency

I am hired out as a contractor through David Aplin. I have very little dealings with them. They pay my wage, thats it. There are no benefits and only the minimum paid holidays.


good pay


only the minimum holidays

I love working at David Aplin Group!

I've only been working here for about 3 months & I love it! I know it hasn't been a long time but all I can say is nothing but positive feedback. There are many tasks to be done during the work week but as long as you are good @ managing your time well, you can expect to be stress free. I've learned many things about my role through my trainer, boss & colleagues. Everyone is very helpful & truly care about your growth. Management is amazing - they don't make you feel inferior. They motivate & guide you to become as great as they are. Training is very thorough but fast. As long as you are a fast learner, you can succeed with DAG. The hardest part of the job is when the internet server goes down & your productivity gets hindered because you have to stop working until the internet is back up & running. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people - colleagues, candidates & clients. It's always a pleasure dealing with candidates & clients because they're always so pleasant - in person, via phone/email. Colleagues will get to know you on a different level besides just on a professional one. Everyone takes their work very seriously but always leaves time for fun, food & laughter. Very diverse bunch & it makes work interesting!


Good people & workplace culture
