Short term contract - thrown in at the deep end

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Short term contract so I was only with the company for a few months. Very much a grab it and run with it position. No training so you had to work things out for yourself although email contact given if really stuck. Since this is the sort of thing I thrive on, it didn't bother me and was probably why I got the position. Co-workers were generally easy to get along with and were happy to leave me to things since I was there to take the strain off them. Never slow to give praise where it was deserved which was always appreciated. I would work for the company again

Supportive and productive workplace

British Solar Renewables has opened a door into HR for me, I had no experience in the sector but they took a chance on me. I have been here 4 months, it is a supportive, friendly and productive place to work. Everyone works together towards the same end goal.

Great workforce, poor management

A normal day saw us shift many tonnes of steel by hand, out across various fields. I learned that unless you have the right management, hard work will be overlooked regardless of how good a job you did. Co-workers were fantastic, great group of blokes always willing to give a hand if they were free, or some advice when needed. Hardest part of the job was the long hours which saw you get home late, tired and only wanting to sleep, thus free time was a premium. Most enjoyable part was the decent pay every fortnight.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long hours, hard conditions, physically demanding work.
