Lot of promises, zero shifts
When started working with Cpl they promised me a lot of hours which never really happend. In the last 4 months they didn't call me once so if you apply for them make sure that that's not your only source of income because soon you'll end up starving. Don't be fooled by their promises that they will call you for shifts, it won't happen because they really don't have shifts to give you.

Supportive,informative,helpfull,understanding
Working with CPL is the best choice I made. I am happy going to work as I know if I have any issues or concerns I can contact CPL and discuss my concerns. I know I have their support, Im not just a number. I have learned from my contact with CPL they will follow up very quickly with any information I request. Management are excellent to deal with. Positive attitude is very much part of the workplace cultue.i enjoy all parts of the job, I cannot say hardest part, I can say in my job, I have come across sad,distressing and complicated parts of the job. I know I can contact CPL to discuss. I have found all members of CPL staff,courteous,professionalfriendly and supportive.. i will continue to work with, yes I use thenwords work with, rather than work for CPL recruitment. To me, working with its the perfect balance in my life

Payment
Do not work for this company. I was not paid for an assignment I was given.

When I contacted payroll they tried to fob me off by saying they did not have the correct tax documents. After I confirmed with Revenue they did Payroll stopped responding.


AVOID AVOID AVOID as you will not be paid.

Generally company is a good place to work. Lots of benefits, good salary, solid training. Downside is definitely focus on micro management. Every minute of lateness is recorded and can affect the performance results.

CPL on site - Good place to start
This place is only for young immigrants as a first job. Do not join as a more advanced role as you will have to deal with internal promoted managers that have no experience or preparation.
Does not have room to grow.

Expect to be paid a lot less because facebook provides lunch.
Pros
Free lunch, Facebook building, Location
Cons
Free lunch taken off your salary, Health care is a lie, most of the benefits they list are a lie.

Hardly ever get back in touch
They were able to provide me with a job when I was really stuck for work and have been kept on nearly 10 months but are extremely hard to get in contact with even a team leader has agreed with this part. If I’m working for an agency and need guidance they should get back to their employees as soon as possible otherwise they are completely stuck. Have sent emails when I needed an official and never heard back to this day.
Cons
Mostly non responsive

Tech Support Operator
U are riding a desk taking calls from clients
The calls can be quite simple like password reset to sending off emails to teams who not answer you half the time !!

Or you could be on a call that the client level is very low no fault off there own but a call that should take 5-10mins lasts nea an hour !!



If it busy which it is most time you have calls waiting and the tram are on you to go back on line as calls waiting


I can see why there at it but if you have to write up your ticket you are not free to take calls

You are given a time frame to do this they want you to cut that time by more than 1/2 as clients are waiting


I have seen a high turnover off staff due to wages if people move closer into dublin wages will go up yes but depending on where you are based so could your journey times and expenses so its a catch 22



I find that we have a very good support team
Pros
U learn the trade
Cons
Very bad wages for what we do

Quality jobs
I have worked with CPL for years. They would call me for temp work on the day most of the time, so it was important to always be prepared every morning just in case. At first I would get calls for long temp jobs that would last from a year to a few months or even a few weeks but lately they have been offering jobs for the day to a few days.
Pros
Temp jobs
Cons
Sometimes work environment not so conducive

Horrific company to contact
Applied for a job I was really interested in through cpl. Experience and qualifications were a perfect match for job description. Heard nothing back at all, not even to say application received. Contacted them after a month to enquire whether job has been filled and up to this date had no communication whatsoever. If your business is people then at basic you should at least acknowledge an application, given people vest time and effort in applying. Can understand that perhaps they receive high volumes of applications but no acknowledgment is very unprofessional.
Pros
None
Cons
Lack of communication

Positve interesting & varied work experience. Staff courteous & efficient .
Good experience, enjoyed working a number of interesting contracts through CPL over a variety of sectors and had very positive experiences and learned a lot in different roles. I felt well supported by staff and systems in place and felt satisfied that I made a worthwhile and satisfying contribution to the companies I worked in.
Pros
Flebility to achieve work balance, while working as a contractor. Courteous, helpful staff. Efficent payroll system
Cons
No support for costs for ongoing cpd, training reg or fees which is a drawback as mandatory

The worst experience ever!
CPL does not value people at all. I was almost forced to sign the contract and wasn't given any time to read through. Once you start complaining about conditions of contract you are blacklisted. Really bad conditions of work. I am sooo happy my contract has fnished and I managed to find a permant position elsewhere. Never any more CPL! Stay away from these people!
Pros
None
Cons
Everything.

CPL onsite Facebook
- Working for CPL onsite Facebook HQ in Dublin.
- As a Community Operations Analyst is to perform content review and apply Facebook policies to different content on Facebook.

- Great working place with people from all over the world under the same roof.

- The vibe in the builing is great, everybody seems to be having a lot of fun, mainly because of the awesome benefits you get such as the free meals (all 3 meals) not to mention the coffee and micro kitchens on each floor, free snack etc.. ohh did I mention the free ice cream and pool tables on the 6th floor.

- Continuous training as policies are continuously updated and changed due to the change in content direction.

- The only bad thing is that as a contractor there is little room to advance specially if you are in one of the larger teams.
Pros
Free Food / Perfect working environemnt
Cons
Lilttle room for advancement as a contractor

Contact worker
Working for CPL has been one of the worst experiences.
They had a point of contact based on the client site - every month there was issues with payment.

They also didn't understand their own contact. When questioned , they did not like it and you were basically black listed.

So I would not recommend working with/ for CPL. The people I have had dealings with were very unprofessional.

I cannot understand why companies hire this recruitment agency to find staff.
Cons
Unprofessional
