    Bit confused by this review, firstly because we have a very small admin team who are still with us after 5 and 14 years, secondly because our hours are normal and flexible and finally because we are located centrally and offer free breakfast.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Aspire full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing positive about this place.

    Cons

    I told them about how I felt regarding a group interview and from then onwards they lied to me about how they will help me get a job but in reality they had put me as inactive on their system, meaning that they were no longer going to offer me an opportunities. They're a truly vile, despicable, grotesque agency. I regret the day I ever came across these lying, dishonest con artists.

    Advice to Management

    Your company is a disgrace. How about hiring some decent people if you people even know the meaning of the word.

    Thanks for the review and I am guessing this was in the Talent Hub in Birmingham before we made our changes. Shame it was too late for you. Now all employees can see that options are open to them and hopefully that will help reduce churn. I agree that it wasn't that clear before

    I worked at Aspire full-time

    Pros

    The database is incredible! Hundreds of thousands of candidates with up to date contact information. Good company branding and culture

    Cons

    The culture was good when I started but there is not as much fun things going on as there used to be. Still amazing people working there who are good fun!

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding little perks and treats like we used to as it really makes the difference.

    I worked at Aspire full-time

    Pros

    Bright, spacious colourful office. Smart, casual dress code. Ability to work from 8am - 5pm unlike many other Recruitment companies. Some nice people that you can easily get along with inside and outside of work.

    Cons

    Very very very (can't stress this enough) heavily focused on targets and KPIs to the point where people compromise the quality of the candidates that they speak to/book in for interviews just to boost their points towards their monthly target. Managers spend the majority of their working day keeping a close eye on the numbers on their screen/tracking the performance of their individual team members. Regular morning...

    Thanks for the feedback and understand how you may feel that way. We do want to attract target orientated people as without achieving our goals we can help our candidates or find the talent our clients seek. We can't compromise on quality as that is a key KPI! I hope you found a more ...
