I was told that there was plenty of work available in and around my area but they keep on giving me shift that are over an hours drive away from where I live or no shift for weeks or even months, no structure-no system. So, at the interview I did a questionnaire as to where and how far I was willing to travel, but that has fallen on deaf ears. Management keeps on changing and it’s always someone different to report too, to get shifts. Pay is incorrect most times but payroll resolves issues immediately. Communication is not great either, no one bothers to return calls, emails and/or messages. When you are sent to a rural assignment you have to have ESP and do the guess work. You won’t be given an itinerary upon accepting the assignment to plan whether you can take on other shifts the day before or after and you have to be a pain in the butt and constantly nag. Which isn’t a great trait to have but it leaves you no choice to get some answers. Was told to invest in steel cap shoes black only and black pants. Most staff wear jeans, jeggings, leggings, runners, pink or tan steel cap. It’s very disorganised. Basically, no care factor:-(
Cons
Communication is appalling.

Female recruitment consultants are quite racist and blunger (mock around behavior hassling u) if u r from different country. They will give u fake job assignments to hassle u around losing your time money and energy. They got contracts with DHL where u dream of becoming permanent in 3-6 months cause AWF don't want u to go permanent as u know their 40-50% commission cut matters. DHL itself has got stuff to play with your head if u work there. ACTION WORKFORCE IS PROFESSIONAL ON HARRASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION ON VULNERABLE JOB SEEKERS. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME MONEY AND ENERGY THERE.
Pros
Nothing special
Cons
Bludgers

Action workforce has done great for me, giving me flexible work options as a casual and provide great pay rates too. The other employees are also great fun to be around and talk to.

Interviewed under the impression that the work was full time, it's not you'll get work but there will be weeks when there's no work at all. When finally rostered on the manager on duty blamed me for mistakes that others made. After about 3 months I'd had enough and resigned. Do not rate working here as a worthwhile career move for anyone.

Hours could be anywhere between 3 to 8 hours long, some jobs were not communicated well and distance travelled versus job pay was not worth it. In the end though you could benefit from securing full time employment

I do merchandising for this place good people to work for but hire to many people so leaves everyone with less shifts, would recommend if your looking for something casual to make extra money but not as a full time gig

Always restricting work, hiring new staff all the time, not a great place to be employed at. Was removed from a 5 day week roster to a 2 without notice and was always scammed with pay, rewards an benefits terrible at making sure staff are getting enough rest between shifts.

I had no problems working here. When work is available it is great. Awesome pay rates - bearing in mind you are casual. Work isn't always available as to be expected with agency work I guess.

Pay was less than any other job agency You’re just a number to them. They don’t care about any wrong doing as long as they’re taking in the numbers. Choose another provider

Have been with this agency for couple of years. During my time there when you an ongoing placement things are find just double check your slips. People are nice enough but can also be two faced and Make sure to chase then up as they do slack with returning calls.

I love the job. Working with people who enjoys the music, having random conversations about random things, getting to know different people with different personalities.

working for action is really under whelming if you have a family to take care of, they lack empathy and understanding that people don't work like slaves.

Be careful with registering with Action. 20 plus years of forklift experience and no work means i wasted my time. If you are in your 40's go elsewhere.
