Not the best place to work

Not the best place to work This company is always struggling with keeping staff and have no idea of what job roles they are placing you in I found myself having to work out my wages on a weekly basis just to make sure they pay me correctly and still every week calling them to fix my wages after they skipped paying me 2-3 days wages

Pros

Weekly pay

Cons

Bad management

I was happy with insurance the have in place for workers if anything to happen to you at work you can consider yourself covered. Work was not unusual typical construction site role, pay was fair

Pros

fair pay

Cons

Use as a last resort

Used to be great then went massivly down hill. Will say anything including offering pay rates that they have zero intentions of honouring to get people on a job.

It’s a employment agency offering jobs for construction industry.

A construction site can be very challenging place and they are different form each other. The work as a labourer can vary from site to site. A large scaleProjects to a very small projects. From demolition to a new build. From delivery and off load to cleaning toilets. And other welfare facilities.

Pros

Very flexible and 0hr work

Cons

Not for longer term.

Poor communication, they only care about the money when you ask for more jobs they'll ignore you for weeks but when they need you they'll call you straight away to start the following day don't be fooled by the fake smiles most companies are fake and haven't worked a day of hard work in their lifes

Pros

Nothing

Flexible and cooperative agency to work for.

I have worked as a labourer in construction for about 13 years and most of that time was for Daniel Owen. They are extremely helpful and consistent in providing work. Trustworthy and thoroughly professional, I can depend on Daniel Owen to provide jobs in my area and I have never had any problem at work due to the business practice of Daniel Owen. I recommend them to anyone looking for work in construction. All their staff seem to follow an ethos of integrity and cooperation.

Pros

Dependable and consistent.

Cons

Always able to discuss with staff.

I have learnt so much in the time I have been there I’m also will not to do more courses to further mmy career in the rail engineering sector.I think every one that is a Pts labourer will agree with me that the only down fall about working on the rail is the weather other than that I fully enjoy what I do.

Pros

Late starts

Good

Good pay but no job security. Average management. Learned to stay focus at work. Met some good fellows down there. The manaement never believe his own staff statement. They never do there findings before taking judgement.

fast paced.

Very fast paced work environment and very cut throat as in your desk may as well be paying rent,if you are late on payment, eviction notice will be served. No Doubt

Pros

not a lot

Cons

Training was just not there.
