Machine Operator in Bridgend, Bridgend
on 17 December 2021
Favouritism & job satisfaction
Like 99% of the staff who were trained up I Was also told at my interview that I’d also be trained up on all aspects of the manufacturing processes but due to me hitting high targets daily,I was left on one machine which peed me off tbh, along with this there was a lot of favouritism amongst older staff who have relatives & friends working there, you’ve got no chance of overtime if their relatives/friends request it, agency staff are put on “unpopular work tasks” whilst relatives and friends get the easier work and are also allowed to have longer and extra break times…hence the continued high staff turn over there…..sad but true

Very clicky.
Temps laid off with little or no notice. Your face fits if you have family working in the company. Long hours. Lots of back stabbing. Management dont have a clue whats happening. One day loads of work, next non.

Target driven
Agency staff get little or no warning when getting laid off. Leaving people without the opportunity to look for employment elsewhere before being laid off.
Technical Assistant in Bracknell, Berkshire
on 27 September 2021
Great place to work but found it hard to progress
Learned amazing skills from my immediate team but found it very hard to get out of my second apprenticeship onto a full time contract, Gutted I will have to leave because they were unable to get this sorted. Worked for the company for 3 years, almost 4 and it was my first "real" job but the title of apprentice was restricting at times, and getting out of my second apprenticeship onto a full time role was difficult. However I was always treated well by fellow members, and have a feeling if I was a full time member I would have been completely satisfied.
