People at the top tell lies

Shocking place to work to managers have no back bone. Seasonal work but lies of full time work. Shocking company and shocking leadership from brain and team in Downham market. Don't believe a word said by them. Vans and trailers not fit for purpose.Only positive is the people on the ground

Pros

Staff

Cons

Lies from managers

Dont work here, poor enviromemt

Where to begin... i started working here in february 2022 and left recently, in the job advert it simply stated past experience is preffered, and driving licence is required as we would be covering the whole of our surrounding area and would their for need to to drive a transit van, a few people had neither past experience or a driving licence so people like myself would have to drive so far in a day often without a back up driver just incase i injured myself to the point where i couldnt drive. The job is overall one to avoid as its a minimum wage paying company and you have to do so much overtime its unreal, they simply stated 7am-5pm but their was loads of 7am-7pm days. So overall do i recommend this company ? No, would i work their again ? Not even if i was being paid 4 grand a mont untaxed money, so overall AVOID THIS COMPANY NO MATTER WHAT.

If you...

If you love long hours working outside in all weathers in poor conditions.this is a job for you. The staff turn over is shockingly high.

Hard work but worth it!

Hard work at times but worth the effort. Plenty of opportunities for progression within the company in different departments and areas. Lots of people start off as seasonal grounds maintenance operatives and then go on to train as tree surgeons, landscapers or team leaders.

Pros

Progression

Sinking ship

Extremely poor management that have taken on a new contract which they have no knowledge about and are trying to completely change how it was run before. This is a company that can’t even provide the correct kit, they have half the workers wearing old ppe from the previous company including hi vis tops that are branded by fountains ocs.

Worst company I have ever been involved with

If I could rate it below one star I would. Overworked, underpaid, understaffed, constantly lied to by management, very very high staff turnover, do not fix machinery when broken, when given a task management do not tell you the full job so you do what you can then you're held accountable because you didn't finish the job properly, promised training (for nearly 2 years) that has never materialized. The list is endless. Once I can find a more suitable job I will be gone

Pros

None

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours make your pay better

Management shocking!!!

Pros

Hard to think of any

Cons

They are the con

Worst company i have ever worked for

Don't do it! Worst company I have ever worked for. Lied to at interview in order to get me to take job. Wages withheld for 2 weeks. Losing contracts left right and centre and they blame the operatives. Poor management, bad people management. Ideal position for someone who wants money but doesn't care about standards.

Pros

None

Cons

Low pay, long hours

Great environment to work in

I've worked for CGM for several years, they are very supportive during these difficult times and I enjoy working with my colleagues in the business...

Pros

Investment in machinery and training

Cons

Working in all weathers, but goes with the territory

Terrible place to work!!

Promised training to develop knowledge, never received any. Doing the same job over over, never having the opportunity to do something different. No job satisfaction.

Stressful yet worth it

There's a lot to do, not really enough time to do it in, but rewarding when it's finished. Pays overtime so if the job takes longer than it should you don't miss out. Management has improved over the years but often there are a lot of jobs to do and not enough workers. Good job security if you don't break laws
