Toxic enviroment

The nuts and bolts of the the job are good. I enjoyed itVehicle s poorly maintained I e faults overlooked untill they fail completely They constantly look for scape goats Management have their preferred staff membersThey refuse to look into why their staff turnover is so high. In the 3 years I was there almost every role had changed staff members several times. Loyalty means nothing

Gap is a great place to work

Gap is a great place to work , it’s a massive company that still has a family feel , I think it’s so good that the company owners are so hands on with the day to day running of the company and always are available. I have worked for other tool hire companies and you just feel like a number but gap is so different . You feel valid and listened to

Pros

Great communication

Cons

Is fast pace in small tools

Stay Away! You've Been Warned!

Terrible place to work, manager is hated in the trade, terrible pay, area manager said "there was no such thing as Covid!". Manager slags off everyone behind their backs, hardly ever had breaks as he expected you to work through them!

Pros

Easy hours

Cons

Manager and his spies!

Awful company to work for

A awful company to work for, somewhere you go if you're desparate or can't get anything else. You're just a number and get pushed and pushed until you're on the edge then they give you a kick to help you over.

Pros

None

Cons

Too many to list

Fast stressful

Not worth the stress, not treat like a human more like a number, hard work not appreciated by upper management staff and health and safety not taken seriously

Terrible

The management was horrible, I was lied to about the pay and had a horrible time at GAP Inverness. Overall experience here was shocking. Apprentices getting bullied by management, team members being guilt tripped and threatened to stay with the company.Management taking out their mistakes and anger on staff.

Pros

Free plant hire

Cons

Negative feeling amongst staff

Enjoy the day to day job..Good hours and worklife balance. A good manager who's listens values my opinion and takes it on board.

I'm very happy at Gap enjoy my day to day work and get along with everyone. Management have been great with me since starting and always listen and take on my points of view. I woulnt mind getting offered a little more overtime at the weekend but joining during the pandemic it's understandable and might come yet once things pick up. Salary isn't great but I'm happy to go to work and enjoy working there.

Pros

Hours, onsite parking. Flexible with my start and finish time. Manager was really good.

Cons

Salary isn't great. But the job is good.

Great Company to work for

I have worked for this company for quite a while .we are lucky in our depot to have such a great team which makes it enjoyable to come to work which is a added bonus ! .

Very slow paced

Hard working many people who work at gap don't care about how they send out the kit to the customer and then wonder why the kit comes back off hired within a day or two.

Different rules for different folk

Depending on who you are in the company depends on what rules are applicable to you. Too many managers!They don’t care about the well-being of their staff at all. They have completely ignored the lates government guidance on working from home and the owner of the business is walking about with no mask on in communal areas where masks are mandatory

Pros

None

Cons

No flexibility

Dirty smelly job but have all the tools to do it safely

I actually enjoy my job emptying septic tanks! I have a new fully loaded lorry and the hours are very social 7-4. I would appreciate a bit more work though as can be boring at times

Pros

Good work life balance

Cons

Salary could be better

This company is run by a load of cowboys who are only too happy to brush there failings under the carpet!

At gap for nearly 7 years..The depot manager has no management skills or people skills at all, and is only too happy to push the blame onto others when there's a problem!..No teamwork within the depot at all,at times there would be a horrible atmosphere which would carry on for months while the depot manager was out on his jollys..Plant would be returned,refuelled and sent straight back out..without even being checked!No training given to apprentices,basically just told to crack on..and learn for themselves I met some really good people while at gap,but unfortunately I met alot of untrustworthy liers who would throw you under the bus at any given opportunity!..I wouldn't recommend gap group to anybody,Very poor company

Pros

None

Cons

Loads

Very poor pay for the work that you do.

I worked there for 2 and a half year worst job I have ever had. Pay was horrendous. Too many people in charge, including someone who done the exact same job as me. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to work for them.

Pros

Working hours

Cons

Salary. Too many bosses. Vehicles in poor condition.
