Super relaxed - honestly worked maybe 3 hours of an 8 hour shift

Worked on a depot cleaning trains. Started nearly everyday with a 'hand bash' where you use a special chemical to wash the outside of a train. once that was done you would take a break until the first unit would come in for the day... Depending on your team leader for the day, the day can seriously be easily paced and barely do any work. You would have one job per day that would be either; hoovering, wiping tables, toilets or de-tanking. Colleagues are pretty awful. Reminded regularly I was a temp and replaceable. Not spoken to in a kind manor and seen as an outsider and if I stood my ground I was reported... A lot of back stabbing and slander between team members and little side groups. Drug use on the team and when mentioned to management, I found out the manager was only one site maybe once a week. Reported to ATA and nothing happened.

Pros

Easy work, great money the longer you are there

Cons

Horrible team members, next to no management, lots of health and safety regulations breached

Awful people, sacked with no reason. Illegal practices

Colleagues were rude insulting and personal. Got called a fat "see you next Tuesday." Wouldd chat you up or treat you like scum. You don't get taken on to southern directly for 2 years so they lie to you there. Woke up one day with no job and no reason for no job.

Pros

One of the best recruitment companies

Having worked for several recruiters I can honestly say this is one of the best. The market is one of the most lucrative, and the training and support is fantastic. You have options to progress as a billing consultant or move into management and also relocate with the business. I haven't experienced this, but there are also opportunities to move within the Group which ha 3 other businesses.

Pros

Training, management, commission scheme

Cons

Hard work but you get out what you put in!

A forward thinking company, focused on continous improvement and expansion

ATA are a well established company who can boast an almost completely "home grown" senior management team, something virtually unheard of in most recruitment businesses. There are progression opportunities for all staff and the business support services allow consultants time to be spent focused on growing their desks. ATA recruit both experienced and non-experienced recruiters and ensure that all staff receive a complete and comprehensive induction to the "ATA Way". With the recent appointment of a new Managing Director it is an excitisng time of progression for ATA.

Pros

Work life balance, flexible benefits

Great place, Great people

Management and training was second to none, very realistic about what you can achieve and the support in the role was great. Joined the company feeling inexperienced but received all the help I needed. The people at the job really make it an amazing place to work - great atmosphere across all offices. Would definitely recommend ATA

Brilliant place to work!

I work at ATA and have done for the past year. I have been surprised to read some of the more negative reviews! It is a fantastic working environment here, everyone is so supportive and the management team ensure you have all the training you need to really understand your sector. Everyone gets on really well and we all motivate one another. The company have also just introduced loads of new benefits, including flexible working hours, dress down days, the ability to add 5 holidays to your allowance and lots more individual and team incentives.

Pros

Training, commission scheme, salary, benefits, team

Best company ive ever worked for

I worked for ATA for a few years but unfortunately had to leave for personal reasons. The training was fantastic, second to non! The staff at my office and others were all really helpful when I was settling in and worked well together to help generate leads and candidates. My office manager was a great teacher and was very understanding when things weren't going right on a desk. 100% recommend this company!

Pros

Great team culture

Cons

Non that i can think of
