not good keep away management are complete idiots they rant on about safety but dont give a monkeys aggressive when questioned always moving the goalposts to suit themselves make sure you have everything in writing as they deny everything
poor money, bad management toxic environment
This use to be a good job before the company was taken over by theFrench company Eurovia, people were helpful and enjoyed the work that they do but there is no advancement in this company unless you have a big brown nose . The job is only seasonal and although I was with the company a long time I was never offered a Full time position because of the area in which I lived .Some of the foreman and Supervisors are alright to work for but some are not, Since the original company was taken over by Eurovia the company lacks the drive and incentive to chase other areas of work in the Uk.Management do not really care about the workforce that has served them for the last number of years and return every year in order to complete the work in the timeframe they are allotted.
some good foremen
Supervisors and Management do not care about the workforce that they get.
I work for Ringway which is the same company. I have worked here for 4 years and have advanced to Highways Inspector.
For me personally Ringway have been brilliant. Decent management team who are very approachable and in general, sympathetic to any personal situation. My colleague's are mostly great guys and gals which gives a good sence of camaraderie. The pay/wage isn't brilliant but it's not poor either.
Winter maintainece/ gritting cant take your wage up to £30k plus.
In the south, where I work, property prices are extortionate.
After working for Worcestershire contract I really thought Gloucester contract would work well being Ringway but was I wrong .. I bet the county has not got a clue what's going on
Left to sort things out yourself..
No comments not enough space
Great place to work enjoyed my time there shame the temporary contract wasn't longer Wishing didn't have to write a much in here it's a pain in the bum but eurovia was great have I written enough I wonder.........................................................................
Worked for Eurovia for 1 year, worst experience of my life, I was completely abused as a worker, working 10-12 hours a day while only getting paid for 8, I was given no encouragement or reward for this, not even a thank you from my manager. There is a huge blame culture unlike anything I've seen at a company before. Rather than finding problems with the processes, managers will find 1 individual to blame for a much wider problem. The managers are useless and there is a general consensus between workers and operatives that the only way to get through the day is to stop caring about your work. AVOID AT ALL COSTS
Long hours, poor/rude management, lack of respect from customers and staff, blame culture
Having led the development and implementation of the Supply Chain and Procurement strategies, I found the Company culture very supportive and rewarding. Development of a forum for agreeing strategy, policy, probity and governance on a regular basis with CEO, MDs and other Directors made decision making agile. Over the period of time I was able to take the business to a steady state environment. The culture is firm but fair and results driven. Performance of acontracts and individuals is paramount.
Recognition, encouragement, good working environment
not a very good place to work if you want a life! the money is good if you want to work all the hours... management is poor! they are more interested in going out drinking or worry about traffic being bad and getting off home rather than caring about the staff and because of this it makes the moral poor and everyone miserable, therefore Dagenham is not a happy office to work !!!!!
free on site parking
miss out on family life, get no support
Good company to work for really enjoyed my time there and learnt a lot of new skills being there so long. Can be boring if you don't have a job on for the day but there is a lot more things you can do.
Always over time
Can be boring if you have no job on
Typical day at work would be arrive at 9 am. Load up emails and SAP. Have a quick browse though emails to see if any major problems have come up, if so deal with those accordingly. Then complete a process integratiin which basically is inputting supervisor costs for individual projects lnto the system. This on a busy day could take a few hours. Then I would work through my own invoices process them if everything checked out corret i.e. Price billed for vs price on system and tonnage of material billed for vs tonnage on job diary. In afternokn I would go through parked invoices which means invoices where there is a conflict as mentioned above or could be internally when supervisor hasnt costed correctly. These will need to be solved as price differences have to liase with different department compared to a tonnage difference. Sporadically throughout the day will get calls from suppliers/clients regarding updates and other adhoc duties will include producing reports to senior figures to compare what was expected to be paid vs what is currently on and why that is the case. Learned alot of skills mostly in regards to working to solve issues and problems that arise. tHerefore thinking on your feet and communication skills were enhanced and utlised. Learning of different processes and systemswas also a big feature. My coworkers were professional in duty, although a slightly older in age on average so socially wasnt the best but we got on and had fun whenever possible. The hardest part of the job was when conflict arose between external suppliers and supervisors as I would - more...
On the job learning. Created independant work ethic and problem solving.
Could sometimes be too militant culturally.
The company is very traditional and does not always welcome fresh thought and ideas and does not like to be challenged by those in less senior roles.
My day normally involves being one of the first on site. I set up the reception area and make sure everything is ready and on hand eg sufficient visitors passes, provisions like tea and coffee supplies. I am the first port of call for visitors and deliveries such as Royal Mail and couriers. I assist people arriving for meetings advising which rooms are booked and managing a very busy switchboard, directing calls to appropriate staff and dealing with more complex inquiries needing to know about other divisions, products and services. I liaise with suppliers in terms of stationary ordering and buffet and daily staff lunch orders. I enjoy the variety and the challenges of being kept busy.
free parking, lunch subsidy, most people are friendly and helpful.
a lack of understanding and appreciation from management for the work we do.
