A company that is going places

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Glendale has embraced many changes recently, putting it's staff at the forefront of what it is doing, recognising their expertise and experience and championing a good work ethic. Due to sales success there is a lot of work to be done, it is a very busy company and you will work hard. If you are good at what you do you will be rewarded. It is a nice place to work.

easy job but pay is poor

Tools not up to standard. management does not have a clue. staffs are fine to work with. hours is perfect for work life balance. minimum wage.if you want promotion you need to be ready to go an extra mile behind closed door (if you know what I mean).

Good bunch of guys and work but management leaves alot to be desired

People will tell you its a great place to work etc it isn't the manager 'dougie' is the most arrogant human you'll meet his 'supervisors' and just guys he's been able to scare or bully enough that he knows he has control over everything they do, If you have a disagreement with him be prepared for him to inform you he is a 'casual' and you would not stand a chance overall avoid them like the plague

Staff great management couldn’t run a bath

Management within glendale seem to brush off any concerns about Ppe, equipment and pretty much any thing you ask. The deployment is back to front and you’ll often visit the same site 3 times because they’ve lent tools out to another branch knowing we need them so by the end of the 3rd visit you’re already behind now on route. No supervisor to lead with tasks but told to refer back to supervisor (confusing isn’t it) but yeah the staff and work load are great so if you generally do want a nice easy job just below industry standard management that don’t do a full day ever and you’ll be lucky to see them also wages are messed up most months and the manager hasn’t a clue how to resolve them.

Pros

The staff, the work

Cons

The management

Quality company, good organisation

Worked on a number of contracts, all well managed and learnt loads in my time with the company. Only left because I moved and would recommend to anyone looking for a long term job. They’ve had contracts for years and are always winning more work. Loads of banter and the lads have a good laugh.

Pros

Variety

Cons

None

Van to take home.

Cons

Need more staff.

Bad place to work there if you have mental health

Glendale in Bolton is a bad place to work if you suffer with mental health problems. The boss didn't care at all about my mental health except for his little pets in the yard. I enjoyed my job really much and my team but as soon as they see you happy they take it away from you. The boss promises you that the world is your oyster and you never see it .

Pros

Outdoor work

Cons

No respect

Excellent place to work

I love my job. My colleagues are all really good fun and it is a great place to work. Although a limited company it feels like a family run business, there is always a good atmosphere.The company look after us and for that reason we all go the extra mile. A great place to work ..... even in these temperatures 😁

Good place to work

I worked on a temporary contract through the summer, loved it and will return next year if they will have me back. Had a really good experience, I have worked for a fee grounds maintenance companies and Glendale are far the best.

Hard work

Worst company ever

Weston super mare branch are all liers they keep u on a shoe string from fake pay rises to fake Promises of kit and phone to be able to complete the job they expect you to do. Management have very little to do with employees almost like they don't care from expecting you to run your own route to sitting in the office doing nothing all day it must be a dream on 40k plus a year pushing a pen round a piece of paper for ten minutes a day!Place is a circus avoid at all costs.

Pros

Holiday pay

Cons

Management and pay

Hard work but lots of fun

Great company to work for, well structured and lots of support from the management team. Highly recommended. Work is varied and high standards of workmanship means clients are retained.

Underapreciated all the time by the main guy in edinburgh.

The supervisor you get will more than likely be ok, he will encourage you and do his best. But the main guy that controls him will get him to tell everyone they are useless and always running at a loss. Its the employees fault that the company is losing money. If he gets the chance to speak to you he will belittle you and criticise anything he can, you could work for the guy for 5 years seasonaly and he will bring up a garden that was missed or a time you took too long in a garden and use that as an excuse to not keep you over winter. He is in a position of power and abuses it on a daily basis. If your fine with being spoken down to and having no job progresion, always having to find winter work and being asked to do more than what is asked of you initially. With zero gratitude once you go the extra mile. Then its a great job for you and i highly recommend it. Otherwise, look somewhere else. This is a dead end job that promises opportunities but bleeds you dry and kicks you to the kerb when the season is done.

Pros

Free pick up or van given to you and you have to pick up people on your way to work, some good lads to work with.

Cons

No progresion, undermined, under payed, overworked.

Don't work there

Supervisor is useless they might as well get rid of him he hasn't got a clue.The whole place is a shambles. You don't know what you are doing from day to day. They employ unskilled workers. Avoid company at all costs.

Pros

None

Cons

You will be conned
