Very poor company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very poor company to work for, Managment full of hot air. Large Unrealistic figures wanted per shift, managment think the roads are clear and the drains are in perfect condition.. Very very poor training for the operatives too but still they expected to hit the numbers after a week.

Pros

Overtime

Cons

Unrealistic figures wanted. Old trucks too

Not a great place to work.

No proper training given. They expect you to do the work without the tickets or training. Want shortcuts taken to get the job done. Even if involves causing major road traffic or increase chances of you getting hurt. Rubbish pay.

Pros

Monday to Friday work

Cons

Management, training, money

Good family company

Conway's was a great place to work as long as you were getting your work done, it was a very relaxed place to work. they are willing to put you through various courses paid for by the company to extend your knowledge and provide you with qualifications that benefit you as well as the company.

Good people to work for

A day at work can and most probably will over run, normal hours are 6am till 4pm but that doesn’t include the three To four hours driving there and back, Managment was fair, and understanding

Jobs with no limits

Worked here for 12 years! Started as operative worked up to contract supervisor, work hard and don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself. Be reliable and willing you could be working here a long time. Overall a great place to work with strict Health & Safety policy’s. If you drink or take drugs then this is definitely not the job for you!

Poor

The job was good but the supervisors and upper manager's were twits. Stealing bonuses and knocking of hours worked. If your face doesn't fit your out. Please avoid at all costs. The Bedford area contract I was on was criminal in the way it was run

Poor

It a if your face fits company Supervisor will bully you out of your job by making life hard so you quit. If your a driver you will not be sacked as drivers are hard to recruit but if your an operative you will be bullied so you quit my advise is stay away look for something else

Pros

None

Cons

Everything... supervisor ... wages

If your face fits

Over worked & underpayed and pay for one person to the next is not the same for the same job and so it is not a level playing field, especially when you know as you have been told by people on higher rates of pay

Pros

I am not sure

Cons

Be warned

Productive and challenging

Good stable company to work for and no one day is the same, there are many departments within the company which covers a diverse range of skills. the company owns many sites in the South East and London employing from local areas and outside.

Not enough time spent on BANKSMAN

Management didn’t care about staff as they were getting backhands from certain gangs & was always sticking up for them.Also you’re health and safety legislation is a load of RUBBISH especially when it comes to REVERSING when in your talk you simply SAY you should NEVER REVERSE without a BANKSMAN.

productive and fun work place

A typical day at work would consist of me waking up at 6am travelling to construction site for 8am. I would immediately inform site manager of my arrival and begin helping the other members of the gang with road development. I learned about how roads are developed and the time and energy that goes into re- constructing a road strip. The management is tight and strict expecting top work effort from the gang members as road image must be held to a high standard

Company full of lies

Got an interview with this company whilst I was living away. Flew in for the interview job role: Operative. Was given so many promises. i.e. Vehicle, living and higher salary after probation. I left my country came in for the job, to find out that I have to find a place to rent myself and had to buy a vehicle also myself as the department I was working for didn't even bothered to find one for me. So 2 lies so far... After my probation period I had a talk with my boss who's always in the office and has no clue what is happening on the site, so there's miscommunication all the time. So he tells me that I'm not good enough and expands my probation for another 3 months. I told him that: 'Look I don't mind about the payment, but it's just nothing that we talked in the beginning, just give me weekends and double shifts' I didn't mind to do the hours because I left my family back home, just wanted to save as much money as possible. I was earning about 2k after tax, which wasn't that bad, but I had to buy a car, pay all the taxes, insurance, plus rent.... so it all added up to quite a big amount and money I was sending home was pennies. So after all that talk with my boss, he promised to give me double shifts and over time, which never happened. So I stayed for another 3 months in the company still giving hopes that it will change, I asked to be moved to other departments it also didn't happen I was told that our boss hates when people move from that department so I was left with no other way. Overall I heard that other departments are different and better, but I believe I just got -
