Discrimination & Bullying

Worst job ive ever had. Discrimination,bullying. communication is shocking! Staff turn round every 6months. Line manager does not offer in house staff more hours, Would rather go to an agency dispite passing probation period. Line manager insisted probation was 6months when contract clearly states 3months. No proper cleaning rota/job role for different parts of the kitchen. Manager seems untouchable dispite staff and agency leaving negative feedback. Think twice before working here because management is extremely poor. Not a ppy atmosphere to work. The only good thing and i do mean that is the school hours!

I would not recommend working there

There was no support from my manager as I asked her for help and support I received no training and she would never answer her phone or emails a lot of pressure

Good fun

Enjoyed various shift work covering a number of different shift patterns. Management was great and at the time the role taught me a lot of transferable communications skills.

Varied Role Opportunities Given

This was a place where I really started at entry level and worked my way up and diversified my role in a few different ways. Events meant varied work but with the ability to stay consistent if you chose. The team I worked with were brilliant and the management listened if there was an issue or if you wanted to move forward with what you were doing.

Lovely place to work

ABM themselves are a good company to work for but to be honest it’s the unit that you work in depends on if you like the job. I’ve been lucky have worked in 2 different units and loved them both. Have certainly worked for some much worse companies!

Pros

Friendly teams

Cons

Basic wage
