Great team

I started when the site opened in January. I enjoy every day at Halo every day is different, delivering cars to customers and bringing there cars to site for repairs. I work closely with the office staff CSA and Manager. Overtime on Saturdays is optional.

New driver

This is my second week at Halo so far Ive really enjoyed working here, I’ve had great driver training and was up and running on my own within a few days. The team have been really welcoming and friendly i actually enjoy coming to work. The body shop manager is very supportive and the CSA issues us our work for the day. It’s only been 2 weeks but so far so good I’m looking forward to a long future and a a career within Halo.

Extraordinary Company

I have worked for Halo for 15 months. I really feel valued by management and all of the Directors are approachable. No 2 days are the same within this fast paced business. I have learnt a lot within the 15 months I have been here and always feel encouraged to learn more and progress with my CPD. I'm extremely lucky that I get to visit all sites often meaning each day I'm with a different team of people. the work culture within the group is friendly and helpful we really are one big Halo family.

Pros

Paid breaks

Halo Portsmouth

Have worked here since December, and to be fair it's a decent place to work. I was sceptical to begin with as I'd heard bad things, but all is good so far. If you're prepared to work hard then nothing can go wrong. It is fast paced, but we have a great team, and we always seem to hit our targets. I've already been trained in air conditioning, something that I'd never been shown before, which shows their level of commitment to me. All in all a good place to work.

Customer service/Driver

Overall the management are not very organized also can me quite rude training is very poor standards and salary is poor. The hours are also not great and you can be sitting around and doing tasks which is not in your job description. Get bombarded my manager soon as you completed a job they don't even give you a chance to speak. Also working on Saturday after doing 50 HR in the week which is more than enough!!! The company make you come in Todo smallest of jobs which could be done Monday/ Friday. Also they expect you to drive a truck! Expect you to load and unload a truck with no extra pay! And health safety is poor. Wages are only just above minimum wages. For the responsibility the wages should be higher.

Fast paced, problem solving environment

Halo is a rapidly growing company. This means there is lots of opportunities for promotion. However some of the sites are a bit short staffed, so reaching the sites isn’t always easy. I imagine as time goes on this will improve. The systems in place are mostly good and efficient. The IT systems they use are simple to learn and easy to use. Most customers are polite with the occasional less polite ones. But overall most customer interactions are positive. That said- It is a very supportive environment with the team. The people here are friendly, and helpful. There is good banter between me and my colleagues and the management are very encouraging. No one asks you todo anything you haven’t been shown how to do which is good. Plus the training is very effective. The time goes quickly. Though some of the work is a bit repetitive. If you like dealing with customers and solving problems this will be a great place for you to work! Overall 4/5.

Pros

chocolate and snacks

Cons

Fast paced means things can get on top of you if you can’t manage stress

Awful experience

The interview and induction went very well. Everyone was overly nice which made me feel uncomfortable. It all seemed very fake. When I got to the base I would be working at the next day I was sat next to someone for 3 hours who showed me 1 or 2 things nothing amazing. I didn’t feel comfortable in the environment. I wouldn’t recommend this place.

Cowboy bodyshop. Management is appalling. Don't care for employees. Young people should avoid!

HALO are dropping the standard of vehicle repairs massively. They couldn't care less about the customers vehicles or the development of there younger employees! If you have a standard of working, then don't come to HALO. *AWFUL*

Pros

N/a

Cons

I could write a book...

Awful Company to work for

Terrible, put you under more pressure to clean the floor than repairing vehicles. The only way you could keep a job there is if you suck up to the owners.

Pros

Money

Cons

Everything else
