I've had several calls from agencies offering me long term work. When I enquire what long term means they asy oh 2 weeks to see how it goes. Now that's fine and so the next question - If all goes well how long is the post for - reply - don't know or at least until half term. What a load of cobblers. Long term means, to me at least, a full term and probably even longer. Although I only earn a pittance at ASDA at least it is permanent and so won't be unemployed in 2 weeks/6weeks or dare I say it just before the dreaded 12 weeks are up.I won't go anywhere near agencies now as we will be well and truly shafted just before the 12 week pay to scale deadline.Supply is, mostly, dead I'm afraid unless you are prepared to accept uncertainty of work (and depending on location).
