Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Cleshar is really a fun place to work and everyone is friendly. I have been given alot of opportunities to gain more tickets and delevlop. I was so happy to that they paid for my training and never asked me to pay for my PPE.

Rubbish

Started in 2009 on a decent salary then they brought pay stream in my money would be different each pay day even though I’d do the same days work. So was unsure where the other money was going. Not a great company to work for.

Other areas seem ok but track workers are treated with contempt at best

After 11 years of watching my pay and conditions decline and experiencing the utter contempt for track workers I wouldn't suggest working here other than to just get experience and tickets and then move on.

Pros

Its marginally better than jobseekers allowance

Cons

My fingers would get tired typing them all out

Good job prospects.

Pvery good career path as there are so many job opportunities at all levels. From brick laying, I to rail trackman, and to management. Once you have taken the necessary test and training and gain your PTS card you can start work day or nights.

Friendly, collaborative working atmosphere. This company has good pay in relation to the work which is assigned during the hours worked which are usually evenings / nights and weekends.

the interview was quite relaxed due to having worked here previously, good tean around me.

Cleshar was a good company to work for, although a heavy workload my team were efficient and the end results were always within time and budget. I had a varied work bank to deal with and clients included network Rail & TFL.

Dirty Environment

The job is difficult, you're physically lifting & dropping off tons of iron for about 5 hours after midnight, various sites are underground in tunnels, so, it can become dirty & stuffy in a hurry. It's hard work in filth.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Hard Labour, Minimal Salary

Not the best to work for

Your just a number to them, doesn't matter how long you work there or how hard you work! I was there many years classed of the lads as a favourite and they treat the lads poorly!

Pros

None

Cons

Skill learning and engaging.

You basicly learn a new job, from zero and get better and more skilled with every job, task and ticket you get. The oportunities are unlimited and the job is constantly changing.

Average

Average company to work for, been there over a year or so and they've helped me grow. HR are not good at communicating but overall a good experience.

Not enough work
