Very easy mind numbing work. Person who interviewed me was incredibly polite, but the area manager of the company only visited once a month but otherwise uncontactable, meaning cleaning supplies run low. Actual manager of the sight was also rude, spoke down on me and the only time he would talk to me is if he wanted something doing. Cannot rely on this company for on-going work, I've been messed around on a number of occasions telling me I no longer have work with them, for them to call me a week later to say they need me again. Would not recommend.
Pros
You can get on with your job
Cons
Unreliable, low pay

The job itself is tedious but not hard at all.Management is awful and do not attempt to improve the productivity of the company based on staff feedback, if aything I was ignored when reporting another colleague whos effort was very little in the job, reports came to me from staff working for the client. Not much appreciation shown from either the company themselves or the client whos hired them for hard work. No recognition for extra effort.
Pros
Easy work and secure
Cons
Tedious and poor management, Monthly pay

A typical day at work would be going get your cleaning things and get cracking I learned that you’ve got to be quick at what you doThe management was really goodThe hardest part of the job was when people were still there and you would have to clean up around themThe most enjoyable bit about my job was making new friends

They are a joke. I had a trial day over 1 5months ago and was promised to be paid for it.still hang happened. They want 1 person to do a 3 men job, didnt even have time to have a sip of water. At the trial 3 of us took 2.5hours to clean the facility, yet they expect you to do it in 3 hours alone. Try to avoid them, they will not pay you.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
No payment

I had a lot to do in a short amount of time. I had support from management and the client. Work was structured and improved with personal refinement. There were often extra shifts to cover.

Wonderful interviewer however the management at the homebase site was terrible, looked down on and shouted at by the manager of the store! The jobs are not crazy hard work but there is a lot of responsibility for the amount of work required! Realistically it takes 2 people for what one person is being paid for.

I only had one job with them. Never heard from them again for another cleaning job. The ‘contract’ I got sent through looked unprofessional and didn’t seem legit

Boxer FM supported me throughout my time with them and I am happy to recommend. My managers were always supportive and were available when I needed them. A move away forced my move but I would work with them again if I had the chance.

I have never been so well supported by any company. My Manager is always available to speak to me and comws to site regularly to see me. The Operations Director is amazing and always makes us all feel important.

It is a pity I had to give 1 STAR to this dire company as 0 STARS would be more fitting. Being a professional cleaner with 20 years experience I joined the Boxer Team with great expectations of working for a great team with new challenges.The only challenges were constantly having to sort out Managements mistakes. We were frequently left without any cleaning products whatsoever to clean with for weeks on end.The management ignores your pleas for cleaning products for so long you have to purchase your own which is very costly.They have so many inexperienced mostly young cleaners that have no capability or interest in cleaning whatsoever.If they put them working with you you have to do their work as well as your own and Boxer management are not interested at all about any problems they cause by their unprofessional attitude. The management especially the junior ones are rude and use threats,lies and intimidation to get what they want which borderlines on bullying.You feel like you are working in 1919 not 2019. If you need to talk to Human Resource then your wasting your time as they always side with management to keep their own nose clean. Boxer are only interested in you for your usefulness as a dogs body to Cover as many Sites and Hours as possible and they ignore the quality of cleaning as long as they can get the clients money. I was so glad to leave and would never clean for them again even if they paid £50 an hour.
Pros
none
Cons
Badly managed.

This company is one of the worst I've experienced. Management are hardly ever seen, every time they appear the last ones left and there is another new manager. Never get your stock orders on time and constantly have to keep reminding and being ignored until you have no stuff to clean with. Cover when you're away is hit and miss and you're expected to clean it up when you're back, think they need some training themselves on how to manage!!
Pros
None
Cons
Bad management

Worked for them for quite a while.Most of the management come across as being helpful when in reality that could not be further from the truth.The management are rude and only helpful when they want staff to bend over backwards to accomodate their often unreasonable requirements. HR and Junior managers are frequently rude and lack basic 'People Skills' and telling untruths comes as second nature to them. Ordering cleaning supplies is chaotic and hit and miss.95% of the time the items you order arrive weeks late OR not at all or the wrong items are sent out. Then you end up buying your own cleaning products at your own expense or use Liquid hand soap to clean floors. The pay is poor and training is a 'foreign' word to them.As a result of this they have a very high turnover of inexperienced unmotivated unskilled cleaners.This causes low morale amongst the staff as the hardest working cleaners have to carry and cover the unmotivated untrained ones.Cleaning jobs that you do on a regular basis are frequently Not covered adequately during your absence and you frequently end up playing 'catch up' on your return to work.There seems a culture of profit before work ethics with this company. Summing up.An unpleasant Experience working for them and would Not recommend.
Pros
Few
Cons
Too many unskilled unmotivated workers.

Job is good to a certain extent. But managment lack communication and basic skills. When you do all the hours under the sun and all the over time they want you to do they are happy When you want nights free or don't want to do so many hours they turn nasty and take your contract away and put you on zero hour. My manager was not skilled or trained enough to do the job. Sarcastic and 2faced would disrespect employees and bad mouth employees to others. When brought to attention of head managment they would pass it off as nothing just because the managers farther is one of there biggest clients and don't want to upset him. Hr is poor and dose not want to make time to discuss any of your concerns or problems with your job. Only stands up for managment and whoever says the truth is shown to be wrong in there eyes. Never come across a HR like it to be honest. In all honesty the job I was doing was good i enjoyed the varied role. But when it comes to managment and Hr that was the part that made me leave and let me down in every way.
