    Now that the exams are over I was thinking about getting a job for the few months before Uni. I thought of joining an temps agency and was wondering what the pay was like and if anyone reccomends an agency. All advice gratefuly recieved. I could work in London.

    A couple of friends have joined temp agencies and i know people who have in the past. The work they did tended to include low-skilled manual labour, eg: binding magazines, packing frozen foods etc... Thing with it is, you get paid more as a temp than the actual employees of the placement because they are desperate for labourers.
    I think pay tended to be between £7 + per hour which is pretty damn good.
