Great Service and Great Turnaround
People2People (Adelaide) were fantastic in their search for a candidate. While helping to support our business in the search of a flexible and talented individual Emma Wragg was instrumental in securing the right fit for our business.
With a tight market and the need for good people, it isn't easy to find employees in the Adelaide market.
People2People came through and we have been pleased ever since as was our employee.
Couldn't thank the People2People office enough!!
Run far away
I’ve been engaging with people2people under a year now. I had to decline one “assignment” because of personal issues and I let them know straight away. Since then, they haven’t contacted me. Today was the worst, where they contacted me at 8:15am to ask questions that were already on file from my initial contact with them. They called back and told me I never made contact with the team about what happened with the assignment I didn’t finish and wrote down lies about how I did a runner - far from the case! Would not recommend them. They only want contacts and I find it fake their assignments get filled under a minute.
Unprofessional & Rude
I waited a few months to submit my review but upon seeing how many bad reviews there are of this agency I am not surprised that I had this negative experience with people to people.
I used to temp with this agency a while back and was unable to make an assignment due to being really unwell. you are not really required to give notice for a casual assignment but I called up prior and explained that I was unwell as soon as their office opened as I had no contact details for my recruiter. I was yelled and screamed at by the recruiter on the phone...and hung up on. I am not someone who ever takes sick days and unfortunately this was out of my control and these things do happen. I was interrogated by him and treated as if I was lying. It is quiet common for recruiters to cancel temp work last minute for temps as well. I then rang up recently to ask for temp work and had seen a role I was really interested - I was amazed to hear from a new recruiter that he had written a bad note about me on my file. I explained to her what had happened and why I was ill and that I havent had any issues since, that it was 10 years ago and that I'd be happy to provide references to prove my work ethic. She really went on and on, going "No I dont know - its not good to have a comment like this on your file and makes me reluctant to work with you" I did apologise again and kept making comments about what poor form it was but that I would always give as much notice as I could and was never the type to take sick days. She really went on and on saying "no sorry" I ended up getting fed up and said dont worry and went to terminate the call as I was hanging up she went "I'd be happy to check references - Its a legal requirement anyway" I had offered them to start and it was pretty obvious she was trying to get me to beg for work. I still told her not to worry and terminated the call. I attempted to complain to the receptionist about what happened. Once I had finished explaining, she said "sorry so what happened?" as she clearly had not listened. I then went to explain again and she responded with "so whats the issue" absolutely amazed at the attitude from her as well - I hung up.
Whether you are a candidate or a business looking for an Agency, look no further.
As a candidate with a HR background I have been thoroughly impressed with people2people. They care as much about their candidates as they do about the organisations they represent. I found them professional, very friendly and the response time was exceptional. They are diligent, really take the time to prep you as a candidate and keep you informed throughout every stage of the application process.

Couldn't return calls when requested, gave the excuse "i was in a meeting"
When I confronted them over their lack of communication about the role that I was put forward for I was met with excuses and no solutions, having worked as a recruiter in the past I can say that this company is worth avoiding.

I went to meet them having applied to a promising advert. Beyond that point it wasn't good. The staff I met were very inexperienced. They didn't have any knowledge about my former employers or really any deep knowledge about my roles. I found I had to explain myself if far more detail then other agencies just to leave confident they could represent me accurately. I did secure an interview with a client but the role was very far from what was described. The client and I actually both shared our concern about the agency and consultant. She had been talking to 2 different people and repeating herself constantly. I would stick to applying directly.
Texting every Friday to ask me if I'm immediately available for work.
This company text me every Friday to ask me if I am still looking for work. You either either reply yes or no. By Monday or Tuesday when I call my consult he asks me are you still looking for work and say' s we'll keep looking for you. Thanks for letting me know your still available. What stupid system do they use if you need to ask me if I'm still looking for work despite reply to your texts every Friday.

Terrible agency, they do not answer calls or emails.
Have applied for jobs through people2people multiple times, each time I get invited for a video interview, called and told my interview went well and that they will give my contact details to potential employer, never hear from them or employer again. They do not answer any emails or phone calls and my potential employer told me they were never given my details. terrible company who blatantly ignore people.

Did not return a single call and left me in application limbo
I applied then filled out my details online and came in to discuss a specific role. I was told the role was not available but to stay by the phone as these roles come in all of the time. Phone never rang so I started calling and the phone was never answered. I have a friend who had a similar experience.
My experience started badly before even getting to the office. I shared the lift with 2 girls who were openly talking about an interview one had just had. Both were looking to leave their current employer. They both got off at the people2people level but to my shock as I went to reception both walked through a door to the back office. They worked there! At the end of my interview one of them was introduced to me as someone else who could help in my own process. I don't like my chances. My main interviewer was bad as well. He seemed to be ...following a script and did not in the slightest seem interested in me or what I was looking for. Having had 2 other interviews in the afternoon which were great with other employment agencies I wanted to share my experience. One of the others has already sent me a message to thank me for my time and confirm I had been sent for a role we discussed. Chalk and cheese.
There's much better recruiters out there
I recently ran into a current employee at an event. At first, I was surprised but then just disappointed in how they spoke about their own staff. It made me wonder what they might say about me. For a company in the people industry, called people2people I would expect more. I was always told to be considerate with what I said and it was better to be respectful then negative. I could not in good conscious work with them as a prospective employer.
I applied a job through People 2 people. They took all my time and details but did not give me that job. Instead, they used me to work for some temporary jobs then forced me to paid for some expanse which is not related to me. They did not have a formal contract like other company do. They put my name on the contact instead of me signing it. The worst is, the contract is not even the job I have applied. I ended up being used by them and finally I realized so I got my current job from another company and left them.
