A typical day at work begins by being on time. You arrive and know what is expected of you, and just get it done. You are left alone to do just that, get it done. It’s not frowned upon to have a laugh and even enjoy your time there as long as you “get it done”.All in all I enjoy my work day and even look forward to going every day. Monday to Friday that is. :).
Pros
2 ten minute breaks, A 30min lunch. You can stop long enough for a drink throughout your shift.
Cons
I personally haven’t experienced any cons

Having worked for Essential for nearly 8 years I would never want to work for any other agency I love our culture how we are looked after and listened too. For hard workers you will reap the rewards and progress. For candidates looking for work if you genuinely want to work we will do our best to get you working.
Pros
Lots of incentives and understanding Directors
Cons
Very rewarding but not an easy job stressful but rewarding

Never had many problems myself. It was rare to have a bad incident with them. They have always been helpful when asked upon and have clear communication with the employees. The days could feel long and strenuous at times.

I have been with Essential for 11 years this year. They are fair, ethical and do things properly and the right way. From personal experience some companies do not work this way which makes for an uncomfortable, unhappy and awkward work life. I have never felt this way working for Essential. They are fair, friendly, accommodating and supportive and hope to be with them for many years to come.
