Sometimes fun and sometimes serious business depends on where you are working.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It is good to work with them. It is only that the working hours are not guaranteed because they are agency recruitment consultant for big companies. You can have many skills by working with them.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

From place to place.

Roster chaos

If you enjoy being finding out if you have work the next day at the end of the day and like 4am phone calls to be in at 5am, then it could be great.Don't understand how they cant set up a weekly roster almost felt like they didnt have a clue what they were doing and just got the job through there mates. Pays good but only get full hrs in peak periods, outside of those periods you will struggle to get 20hrs.Steriod use if highly rewarded and WHS is not required

Pros

Good pay

Cons

No roster find out that day if you have work the next

Working for AWF

Working for AWF was a dream Very nice and kindly people Every time I call them they have a solution for my problem The send me every day email or txt messages to inform me for any changes or about work or about health and security government orders They keep me update all the time I’m very happy to find this company If in the closer future can find me a job with 8 hours work will be great because the 5 hours is not enough

Pros

ioannis Diamantis

Cons

More hours please

Hard work

Hard work for minimal pay, I worked at the merda mushroom farm and you work your butt off for minimal pay and for them to randomly roster you when they feel like it.

Pros

Discount on mushrooms

Cons

Not enough hours and back breaking work

Poor management from Action

When you first sign up and promised all these shifts. Two weeks down the track, you’re lucky to get one or two. When you ring up to ask for more shifts, they tell you there is no work, but then you hear from colleagues they have had 4-5 shifts every week. A lot of favouritism in the work place and if you’re not in with the team leaders, you hardly get any shifts.Poor management from both Action and the team leaders who all need a lesson on how to speak to staff.DON’T WORK FOR THEM!!!

Pros

Away trips (if you’re lucky)

Cons

Promised 8hr shifts, most times sent home around 4am

Very Disorganised

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.

Great place that provides great work options to students who are looking for experience and casual work

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.

I wouldn't work for them again

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.

Fast paced

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

Good people to work for

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

Mismanaged and terrible and organising rosters

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.

Good when the works available

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.

They pay less

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

Average

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.
