Hard work but it pays off

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great supervisors and managers! Can be hard due to the job being physically demanding sometimes but it’s a great environment to work in. You get time off in the school holidays also which is a positive.

Pros

Evening shifts

Cons

Physically demanding

Horrible environment

Cleaning in a school environment the teaching staff are amazing! However the Amey cleaning staff/management are shocking! If your face doesn't fit then you'll soon know about it! Staff are very clicky with one another, gossip and bully! I wouldn't recommend!

Pros

Short hours

Cons

Bullying staff

Stressful unsurported

Amey culture at the very top is not transfered to Operations Directors , they appoint with mo reference to policy and see a work force as only a means to place margin onto bottom line

All good

Enjoyed my time. Very busy workplace with a good management team . Problems were solved without a blame culture being attached to it which I've found to be prevalent in construction

Too many hrs and not one bit of Appreciation

I was working as a caretaker the working week wasn’t too bad apart from them wanting you to be in 5 places at once and get everything done in 10 minutes . You don’t really get a break because you have a radio constantly on so you always live and the weekend are ridiculous two 13hr shifts then straight back in Monday shocking

Repetitive work with some room for autonomy

At my role the main focus was on productivity (answering calls, completing jobs, call quality, etc.). Some room for autonomy was allowed especially in out of hours roles (producing more efficient process, coming up with creative solutions, etc.)

Worst place

I imagine that Amey as whole may get mixed reviews but the office I worked in was most definitely the worst place i have ever worked, get thrown in at the deep end, made to feel like an outsider, hated going in every day due to other staff members who don't like new comers.Would not recommend it.

Shocking

Don’t waste your time working here no support shocking management and unfair pay for the jobs you have to do and things you have to deal with if you have a problem you are asked to sort it yourself because management only care about themselves and you get laughed at when you need things for your job absolute joke.

Pros

None

Cons

Bad management

Easy, laid back.

Good place to gain experience for novice operators and gain new qualifications/tickets. Massively underpaid in comparison to other successful waste treatment/management businesses. which reflects on everyone's easy going lazy attitude towards helping the business grow, hence why there's no money and the pays so poor. Good sick pay scheme which is reassuring.

Pros

Easy going. Good sick pay.

Cons

Poor salary. Machines could do with upgrading.

It’s who you know……

Understaffed and only chance of advancement is if you know the right people. Lazy people get away with doing nothing and the people that do work just get more and more without any thanks.

Pros

Not much

Cons

Under-appreciated.

Used as stepping stone or a platform to learn only

bad management,roster could be out and changed every week.They group onto a gang, u are either accepted or left out.Management have bad memory, no system, doesn't give a proper training, so everyone has different technique. Have to use your own judgement which is the correct way.God bad shift, not flexible work.

Pros

can be used as a stepping stone

Cons

bad management, either accepted into grouo or left out, with lits yo do but not appreciated.

Management out their depth

I was recruited as a FM manager however the existing managers are all set in their ways (This is the way it’s always been done) The way they operate is dangerous for the business and their clients as they have people making decisions for financial reasons only, with no regards to compliance or health and safety. Not only this those making the decisions don’t have the skill sets to make the right calls at the right times. Things need to change top to bottom as they are a company that are circa 15 years away from their nearest competitor.

Pros

Fleixible working

Cons

Management
