Typical of most agencies. Although this one is up there with the worst of them. Hopefully all these deadshit agencies will shut down for good and we can return to the old way of applying for work, Directly. Down with all recruitment agencies. All power to the Working Class
Pros
zero
Cons
infinite number

It is unfortunate that you feel you have had a negative experience with APG Workforce. We would encourage you to contact your local branch to discuss this further.

I contacted APG Workforce through the website, I received a reply email to register online with my local branch. Within 24 hours of my online registration I was contacted and had a phone interview. I am now currently working with frequent ongoing shifts each week.
Pros
Lots of ongoing work
Cons
None at this stage

Don't think for one second that yourself 1 of over 1000 people working there that u are a valued employee. you are disposable to them and if you take one sick day off with a written doctors certificate that is apparently required to be supplied from a casual employee they'll fire you in an instant and bring in another batch or poor souls in a week later. Some managers are nice and some are just so rude and will single out particular people and make them do extra while others keep there heads down just to walk out on time.
Pros
did give decent hour weeks for an ok hourly rate.
Cons
smells, cold, people are nice and mean well but some are just awful rude people.

They were so horrible to work for. Was working for them and could never get in contact with them if I couldnt work. I was told to use an app they never checked. They would abuse workers when they never came into work. When i found out i was pregnant, they basically stopped giving me work and when I called they told me they couldnt disclose why they couldnt give me work... WORST company I have worked for and defiantly wont work for them again
Pros
None
Cons
Unreliable, never give you work when they was plenty.

There are only 2 recruiting agencies I'd never ever work for again and APG is one of them, the other is Programmed.
You get the average agency who treat you like a number, and then you get those agencies who treat you like the lowest life form known to man. Such and tired of not being paid for the work I do. These people will rip you off if you let em.

in the short time i was working for APG i reported the incident to management did there statement. then got fired from head office "management" i also heard a lot of raciest and bullying remarks. they clam the management reduced the staff numbers only to find my job relisted. i followed all the policies and was on time and watched others disregard them turn up late (up to 45min) if you plan on a job with this company dont expect much in the way of job security. best bet would be turn up late dont follow the polices and be a recast if you do want to work for this compnay

No communication to keep you informed how your progress is going with applying for positions and quite frankly were unprofessional, swearing and yelling across the room at each other in front of those in waiting room.
Horrible company

I applied for a role through APG Workforce in January 2019 as I was not receiving regular hours in my previous position. Within 48 hours I was called for an interview and registration and subsequently gained employment as a machine operator for highly reputable manufacturing company less than 2 weeks later where I am still employed today. I found my consultant at APG to be very informative and I was always provided with regular updates.
I am very thankful to have found this role I am in now and will hopefully be made permanent very soon.
Pros
Communication

30yr veteran forkie that owes this agency nothing.
I'm not sure which is worse.?

Action Workforce, Labourforce, or AP Global, all in Western Sydney.

They're all a rude bunch of false promises that cannot stand by their lies and deception.

This entire Casual workforce rubbish is a total scam.

The casual staff get harassed endlessly in various companies.

These 3 agencies don't give a hoot about their casual staff and /or harassment issues directed at casual staff members.

I've witnessed numerous casuals being bullied regularly.

This rubbish needs to stop because I'm prepared to start punching on with these bullies that relentlessly bully others.
Pros
Nothing, Nudda, Zero, Zilch.
Cons
Getting told to go home for bullying the actual bullies and getting sacked as a result.
