    I wouldn't worry about bad agency reviews too much. Pretty much every agency will have bad reviews somewhere.
    yup Thursday, Friday. Monday, Tuesday. Invoice / pay is weekly. No good reviews. Just 1 and 2 stars.

    How to deal with dodgy agency

    Hi Friends, I started a new contract, at a great rate (paid weekly), in a great location. The role is my primary role, I'm good at it.

    Then I saw the average 2 stars the agency has to on Google reviews. And started reading about ignored emails, lying on the phone, and generally unhappy contractors being messed about.

    I emailed asking for timesheets, got a reply about experimenting with a new online system.

    I composed my own invoice and timesheet, got it signed by my manager and emailed it, no reply.

    I emailed that I had no petrol money, and got a reply that the invoice and timesheet have been passed to the payrole department.

    I'm taking today off - to see what happens.

    Question: What are good tactics for this situation? Am I over reacting to the reviews (only done 4 days work), or is it best to move on sharpish (while they don't owe me too much) to a lesser but more likely to be actually paid rate. Should I involve my manager? Say, cc'ing in a email enquiring about my scheduled pay date? Or is this just how it is sometimes
