Still working here looking for another job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Still working for them. Job was great until a planning department was invented. Now everyday is a nightmare. Total unrealistic work target's. Constant abuse from customers. And very low pay with no increase since starting 3 year's ago.

Pros

None

Cons

Lots of heavy lifying

Absolute joke.

From the very top of the company it's driven by greed, expecting the maximum work and effort from the workforce but for the minimum of outlay, 2 years without a pay rise so you end up just above minimum wage. Staff turn over throughout the company is ridiculous, from management down, so many people have come and gone, terrible old fashioned attitude which doesn't fit in modern society.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything thats bad in a company, this one has it.

Management

Awful place to work the management don’t care about their staff they are treated poorly and expected to work in dangerous high winds and freezing cold temperatures in a tent off the Tyne.

Productive and fun workplace

The working environment is both fun, but challenging and productive. I've learnt a lot and the company philosophy is to give opportunities to people who work hard - which is great!

Dull Atmosphere

Initially I thought the workplace are a close-knit group. I’ve made friends here but the office is very small and lacks the motivational atmosphere that you need in sales. There is never recognition or competitions/rewards so you tend to just float along. I’m now seeking a role which does challenge me more and has the option to progress along with commission.

Pros

Simple work

Cons

Lack of challenge, undervalued, dull atmosphere

Hard and unsafe work

When working at BLOK N MESH, I spoke realised that the work being carried out was not being done as safely as possible. The work was vigorous and the health and safety regulations were not all being seen out.

Cons

Long hours, hard work, unsafe

Productive and friendly workplace

I have been here for one month now. I am surprised to see any negative reviews because my experience so far has only been positive. The staff here are friendly and welcoming and a lot of the staff have been here many years which is indicative that it must be a good place to work. I have heard rumours that there has been a lot of changes (for the better) over the last 14months regarding the way the business is being run and I am assisting the Management with improving the business even further. I would highly recommend working here.

Pros

Great staff

Cons

Small car park
