Working with the lads on site who has the same feeling you can’t talk to management it just gets pushed under carpet you have no say in the job you got to do it there way even though it’s not the best way

Horrible and low pay not worth it

Filthy and low pay bottom line, they speak to you like ur not even working for the same company which makes me wonder why they even employed me! if a wasn't making a difference why did they take me on full-time? the subcontractors get treated better says it all.

A good bunch of lads

Was a good working environment with a lot of decent lads in management. Was unfortunate they changed to price work which was unsuccessful and caused the painters loads of stress.

Pros

Good management

Cons

Can be day rate then change to price work

Hard work

Hopefully working here is just a stepping stone and not just a permanent job, the pay is decent to an extent, the work is what it is, however the people working there can sometimes make up for it, although it feels like a clique.

Free lunches

Cons

long hours

Best move I made

Almost fell into the job and so pleased I did. The business is growing every year and with the improvements they are making to processes and standards across the board, this will only keep getting better. I feel appreciated in my job and have access to my direct line manager and theirs if I need it. The work can be busy and hard, but I'd much rather feel like I've acheived something at the end of the day than not.It's a family business and, even though it's expanding so quickly, that ethos remains at the heart of the company. Holiday entitlement isn't great, but I've been spoilt elsewhere.

Pros

Growth. Commitment. Investment in staff

Better jobs out there than bell.

Shambles. Boss couldn’t run a bath. Always spoke to employees like they were mud. As soon as you ask a question or talk back your sacked. Boss can’t take criticism back and targets anybody. Place is very clichy. Stay clear

Pros

Getting Sacked

Cons

Working for them in first place

Was always busy

Good place to work like all things plenty to keep you busy which is good but sometimes you felt like you never got the first job done which is annoying sometimes.

Pros

Fair to staff

Cons

Always doing three things at once

Heading in the right direction

Am currently employed within the fire protection Division within the southwest. The company has a strong belief in helping their employees reach their desired aspirations and goals. The Pay reflects your hardwork and also recognise the importance of work/life balances, particularly during these hard times. Definately worth a go.

Pros

Good providers of training and other quals

Cons

I didn't work for them earlier

Avoid at all costs

Terrible place to work. Expected to fit a kitchen a day for £14 an hour!!! Promotions are based on kissing a** rather than having any knowledge or skill. Management are spineless and treat the workers like they are stupid. Definitely a company to avoid.

Pros

Zero

Cons

All aspects of the job
