Con artists

Do not work for this company Management don’t care for your well being as they will replace you as quick as you can flush a toilet.Seen atleast 15 people come and go with my time being there Would not take my car there in a million years considering staff would even be told to do more damage to a car than what it originally came in with just to write it off DO NOT WORK THERE

Pros

Get to go home

Cons

Have to go there

Challenging, fast-paced and fun

I have worked at Halo for 8+ months now. I have enjoyed every minute! Halo is challenging, but you are encouraged to be the best you that there is. You are helped along the way by management and colleagues, you will more often than not fit in with other workers and will never be given a job too big for your capabilities. I would recommend this company over most others that I know.

Pros

Good pay. Great colleagues and approachable management.

Cons

Early start. Sometimes offered extra hours.

Enjoyable and friendly with an aim at hitting targets

I've been working with the company over 3 years now Eastleigh is a fun and enjoyable workplace where you have the opportunity to progress and better yourself. There are targets to hit each week/day but depending on your approach,and with the teamwork and can do attitude these are not insurmountable. Each day brings it's own Joy's and issues but the gratitude from the customers do help make it worthwhile.

Pros

Reasonable wage, no 2 days the same, great team

Cons

With the right attitude and hardwork theres very little to complain

Professional, forward thinking and innovative

Halo is a very professionally run company. They are forward thinking and innovative and are always looking at new and exciting ways to improve operations. They treat staff fairly and look after you. They have high expectations and standards. The workplace is fast paced so you are always kept busy. There is great team work and staff look out for each other. Every day is different with new and different challenges and opportunities should you wish. Management are supportive, involved and visible. They have worked hard through the pandemic to ensure job safety and offering staff flexibility for working where possible. I feel valued and supported as a member of staff and would recommend them as an employer.

Pros

Paid lunch, On site free parking, Good holiday allowance, Treats bought in by management, Owners dogs.

None.

Great place to work! As a Customer Service Advisor the role is very fast paced and varied, which is great for making the day go quick. I work with a great team of people. I get the help and support when needed from management and head office. Everyone within the Halo group are friendly and approachable, making it a place of work which I enjoy coming to everyday. I was provided with a 100% pay during furlough last year and the overall pay is very good.

I have worked at Halo for 2 years now, I have been fortunate enough to grow in my role which has given me the opportunity to learn and develop. The claims team are a good group to work with, everyone supports each other and work well as a team. All managers are helpful and always on hand to support when needed With the ongoing pandemic, I was kept updated on a regular basis and at no point did I feel my job was at risk. Staff have been allowed to work from home to keep everyone safe.

Great place to work and fantastic atmosphere

Working as a painter i am always busy but I never feel overwhelmed as the team around me are there to help at anytime.At the moment I am covering for the BM which is exciting but also stressful but once again I’m not on my own I have the CSA to help me with the day to day running of the site, I also have help from head office with anything I am not sure of.I also get massive support every day from all the staff I work with.The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the whole job through from start to finish and the great customer reviews.

Pros

Good salary, Great working environment

Great place to work, i have never had ant issues.

I have worked at Halo now for roughly 15 months and in this time I have found it to be a great place to work. I settled quickly in to the work environment and got along with the other employees straight away. The management are fair and reasonable. It may seem daunting to some people to approach the branch managerment and the regional management with issues, but I personally have never had a problem and have always had any issues dealt with immediately and fairly. The work pace is fast. Faster than a lot of places I have worked at in my 15years of the motor trade. But everyone works as a team and the targets are met with little stress. Any body who is willing to work hard and work well and also to a high standard will find themselves well suited to Halo.Since being here the company has invested heavily in me. I have been made team leader and put through various training courses. As a result I am now the electric/hybrid vehicle technician, panel beater and MET tech. This may seem a lot for one person but I have found that hard work is something that doesn't go unnoticed and is appreciated greatly.The wages a more than fair for the work load expected. I much prefer a higher rate of pay than a lower rate of pay with potential bonus. I personally have never had any issues with working at Halo and would recommend working for them.

Pros

Uniform provided. Company invests in employees.

Cons

None

Fast paced and productive

I've worked at halo arc for a year and a half now, and it is different how they run their business to other body shops which is a good thing. I am always kept busy so the days just fly by and im always learning new things. Our team works together so that targets are hit and customers our satisfied with the service we provide.

Pros

Paid lunch breaks

Safe place to work, friendly environment, not one day the same.

I was informed that it might be an opening for a maintenance position with Halo by a Halo employee and I decided to go with my CV and ask the question. I was invited for an interview few days later and been offered a job shortly after. The interview was straight forward, talking about my background and we discussed about the company and the expectations from the job role. I have been with Halo ARC 7 years now and I am still happy, appreciated and listened to. I travel to all sites and can say that the staff on each one of them are equally friendly and helpful.

Pros

Paid breaks, clean environment, helpful staff and management.

Cons

None
