Challenging but worthwhile

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I started AD Construction Group as a Apprentice Marketing Assistant in December 2016, I have completed my apprenticeship and now a full time employee. AD Construction Group is a relaxed place to work, and I enjoy working in the marketing team. A typical day of work at AD for me is fill out Selective Questionnaires / Pre-Qualification Questionnaires, looking for new opportunities, help organise any events coming up and go to conferences. This is my 3rd year at AD and I feel like I have learnt a lot of from the team, they have taught me about the construction industry as I had no clue what the construction industry was all about. I feel I have gained a lot more confidence whilst being at AD by attending conferences and company events talking to our existing and new clients. I have learnt to manage multiple deadlines and assist my team in meeting these deadlines. My team are all very supportive and we ensure we help each other with any task. The most enjoyable part of my job is attending different conferences and helping organising company events, I enjoy socialising with clients and members of staff. Also, when we have been successful on Selective Questionnaires / Pre-Qualification Questionnaires I have completed this shows a sign of achievement. The hardest part of my job is gathering information from the Contract Manager for tenders but I ensure I give them plenty of notice or ask to arrange a meeting instead of keep chasing them up.

Not good

They take anyone as they’re desperate for staff.Wages is very low very high turn around in staff due to this. Sounds good in the interview but in reality its not. Only managers looked after which is a known fact.

Hard working and driven company

The typical day could vary on location quite a bit due to the nature of the contract. But as a process driven company a lot of the daily tasks where the same. Management was busy but approachable. I have learnt that hard work is rewarded at AD. The Culture is to work hard as a team. Dealing with traffic is without doubt the hardest part of the Job. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with the operatives all of which are good people, most of which have been with the company for a long time, know their roles and make my job easier.

Pros

Delivery teams work togeather, Good team spirit

Cons

occasional long hours due to travel

A relaxed but busy workplace

AD Construction is a good place to work as a team and as an individual. Everyone works close together to maintain strong and effective working relationships. A typical day at work is to fill out Pre-Qualification Questionnaires and research possible Tender opportunities. I have learnt a lot at AD Construction Group, mainly through my Department Manager. She has taught me everything I need to know about the job and she has also let me get a bit creative. I have gained a lot of confidence working for this company, which showed when my Department Manager was on Maternity leave and I took over the Management duties. I have learnt to prioritise my work and work to very tight deadlines, without letting the pressure of getting something in on time get to me. My Manager is very supportive and so is the Managing Director, who is always pushing to get the most out of my ability and potential. I get on very well with my co-workers and have gained a strong working relationship with all of them. The hardest part of my job is getting information from the Contract Managers for questionnaires, when they are extremely busy. Though, I have learnt to be a bit more direct in my approach and this issue has improved. We now have an understanding that to help me, will benefit them in the long run, helping to win them Tenders and further work. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we qualify on a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire or win a Tender my department had input in. It makes my job feel worthwhile and I always feel a sense of achievement.

Pros

Hours are the same every day, I enjoy the job

Cons

Feel like I have reached my potential at the Company and to move forward in my career, I need to move on
