Underpaid for what we do

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Serverly underpaid for what we actually have to do. They have the mobile security division on the same pay rate as the cleaners when its a much more involved job. Supervisor is great but management just don't know what we do because they are from the cleaning company background. Cars are inefficient for the job because again they have given mobile response the same ones as the mobile cleaners

Bad management terrible pay hours too little

Management never listen to there workers no matter what the situation. Never any stock to do job properly. Always incorrect pay on wage day extremely bad when it comes to correcting ya wage. You clock in and out on a app on your phone , told to keep your location on the app at always so that they can locate you at all time at there end of the app I think that is invasion of privacy. Good thing is you don’t get to see management very often most things get done over phone makes it so you don’t have them breathing down ya neck . I have had six new manager’s in the space of 2years because they just don’t stay very long . They let big situations slide but jump down ya throat for the small petty things. Bad all round

A good employer.

Atlas FM gave me two great years during the pandemic! I loved my job at Huddersfield County Court as a touch point cleaner but alas it has come to an end as I knew it would. Not their fault, though. We all thought we had another year and the MOJ pulled it from under ALL our feet right at the last minute!

Pros

A nice environment to work in.

Cons

Public.

Supportive company

Started working for atlasfm last year, my manager is very helpful and supportive, ive found if i need to place an enquiry the office based staff are willing to assist me also.Atlasfm are rapidly growing and providing more employment to people so their reputation for treating staff well,paying on time and providing permanant jobs is bringing more people into their family of customers and staff. I would reccommend atlasfm !! After being in the contract cleaning industry for over 20 years and working for several different firms i find atlasfm a breath of fresh air to be employed with.

Relaxed atmosphere

Having worked at pure gym rochdale formally fitness first for 22yrs,10 yrs of which with emprise/atlas,I know every aspect of the job inside out, my only criticism is the hourly rate of pay for working nights, working nights for 10yrs in may, the pay should reflect the fact I'm working unsociable hrs and the pay should reflect that,should at least be £10 hourly, that would attract more employees of which h we struggle because of the rate of pay,tha

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Stressful and too much work

Cleaners need to be shown how to clean things fast because if they are in an unfamiliar environment with unfamiliar equipment they clean things slowly and after 1 hour they lose focus and get too tired to continue cleaning for another 7 hours. Cleaners need to be advised the order in which they are expected to clean things. Example: shower areas in both male and female changing rooms should be prioritised above anything else. High dusting can be done at the end of the shift because it takes the least effort. Yet new staff are just told their shift times and are expected to know everything from day 1. Also some sites are too large for one person to clean especially for 5 days in a row. There should always be 2 cleaners on bigger sites doing equal amount of work every day to take pressure of one cleaner being overloaded with work because eventually they will just leave.

Pros

Variety of shifts, overtime available on demand

Cons

minimum pay per hr
