Start 0730 finish about 1400. Can be enjoyable if weather is ok. Used to be a laugh. What is wrong now is that too many KMA's are bosses. They forget they were one of us(WORKERS). Too much cover up if your face fits. Great job went wrong.

Ok place to work

Ok place to work, people on the ground all try their best, but management don't know their jobs and don't care about those below them, look elsewhere if you want to advance.

Pros

Ok pay

Cons

management

A great team to work for

I loved this job, it was jso st time for a change for me. Was lack of organisation I didn’t like Rotas were always different so sometimes you didn’t know wot u were working the next week until a Friday after shift. Which made it hard to make appointments dentist etc which. U would then need time off for.

Pros

Meeting new people

Cons

Unusual work shifts bad organisation of Rotas

Not good career advancement opportunities

If you have values and stick up for yourself in the workplace then D&G Council May not be the employer for you. Very much “jobs for the boys” and if your face fits you will go far. If not,you’ll be getting appearance money and not at the best rate.

Pros

Stable enough

Cons

Management don’t know their people

place for the younger people

This used to be a great place to work but after 25 years i would like to try something new, feels like i am turning into my dad ! the council are trying very hard to make changes, but have their system that seems like hard work to me. Though they ask for fresh ideas knowbody !! wants to stand up to the plate, and accept responsibility .
