Deputy Manager in Derby
on 12 August 2022
Enjoyed my time at derby City. Public services are a much better environment than the private sector. Better pay, better hours, better support, better pension. Doesn’t feel like it’s all for profit. I would work here again

Lovely friendly place to work
Everyone so friendly. Pay could definitely be better and pay per millage could also be better. Great place to work, you get a laptop and support and training

Street cleansing in Derby
on 1 March 2022
Vile place to work very cliquey.
Street cleansing department run by members of the same family when it's meant to be a public service. If your face fits you will be OK. Foremans of the vans leave you to do all the work and drive around all day especially managers step son. Management go home and take thier dogs for a walk. No support by management if you moan they will give you the most degrading job and be nasty to you. Working mostly in Norminton Derby walking long distances litter picking and having no support. Members of the same management family driving around in the lorry laughing at you. Lazy employees will not help you and laugh at you if you have a long route to. Training is appalling a few hours in a class room at stores road. No parking only for bin men the rest have to park at Chapel Street car park and walk in. Management seem to look after employees living in the Chaddesden area where management live. Say they recognise mental health but in reality they don't give a damm about you, your just a number. Please don't do it to yourself and leave well alone.
