Great company to work for. Unlike most repair shops I have worked for, the work place is clean and tidy. Good process and workflow. Teams have a can do approach and get rewarded for their efforts. They are focussed on the future.
Pros
clean, friendly, recognised for what you do

Awful company would not recommend to anyone not just my own personal experience but many before and after me too. Don’t care about their staff at all. They love using buzzwords like forward thinking but its all b*ll*cks to get people through the door once you’re there the illusion fades and you left with the steaming pile of doo doo that it actually is

Be very careful! They are nothing more than a backstreet garage in shiny packaging. In fact this is just an insurance scam masquerading as a garage. Rogue Traders could do a feature length episode on this place!

Too many chiefs, not enough indian's. 50+ hours over 6 days for office work, people come and go left right and center. Minimal training, thrown in at the deep end with no support. Breaks had to be taken in the morning, no breaks were allowed after lunch. I was only there a few weeks but no one was happy there.
Pros
Half an hour lunch and a 10 minute break paid.
Cons
Long hours, Saturday work, Negative atmosphere.

I will add to the Victorian culture absolutely disgusting company to work for they say team environment this is actually complete opposite. Like to employ Polish and Romanians as they exploit the laws to the full. You are their slave the time your toilet breaks you have ten minutes in the morning and 30 minutes for lunch in a ten hour day, however don’t expect to take this as the boss will dictate to you when you can take and although you start at 7 you may not get to take your lunch till 3 sometimes later. You maybe employed as skilled workforce however they save money on office cleaners and you will be expected to clean the toilets, kitchen area and the whole site if you happen to have a short break between jobs in fact even if you are snowed under you will still be expected to do this. Never work for this company it is the pits, in fact never get your car repaired here they use the cheapest of cheap materials will never replace a broken part they will always repair to save money,. You maybe told that you need to use this facility but actually you have a choice! The work may look ok for a short while but it won’t last they don’t want the workforce to do a good job just a quick bodge and fix,
Pros
You get 10 minutes break mid morning and 30 minutes lunch however might be teatime in 10hour day
Cons
Out of date work culture

Terrible work culture (everyone against everyone), poor benefits, bare legal minimum leave/lunch breaks (30 mins for a 10 hour day) long hours, no employee support whatsoever (you're just a replacable cog in a machine), revolving door recruitment policy (it is so bad it was pointless learning names as they would be gone in a week), no job security, the highest labour turnover I have ever seen (I'm surprised people still apply). I'm surprised they are still running, they must imprison the staff left otherwise I'm sure they would have left. The director actually said once "everyone is replacable" just sums up the kind of working environment there. Like a Victorian workhouse or prison. Oh..but you do get bank holidays off...
Pros
You get paid
Cons
It will cost you your soul

I had a lot of fun at Halo. I got to take on so many new and scary roles and I absolutely loved it. I got taught lots of new skills such as washing hair, cleaning the work area and at College now, I have learned to do a couple of cuts which I am so proud to say I can do. The hardest part of the job was getting over the fear of doing something wrong but the staff helped me massively and helped when I was struggling. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the hard work. I love keeping busy and getting on with work it is very enjoyable to me.
Pros
Friendly staff and customers
Cons
Short lunches

I thought I would copy and paste this previous review as it seems exactly like it it sums it up in one, you want minimum wage, to buy your own company uniform, no benefits, not get paid for sick days, be called into the directors office and stand in front of them like a school kid, have an assigned lunch hour, take your own tea and coffee to work (yes really!) and have to use different toilets than the directors, then this is the place for you. If however you want career progression, appreciation for hard work, directors that are innovative and inspiring, transparency, decent salary, benefits, a pension then your talents are better used elsewhere. They'll fire you as quick as they hire you if they don't like the way you smile at them, As well there are 10 hour days and you have to be constantly working not stop to even pick your nose,
Pros
None
Cons
Lots

This has to be the worst place I have ever worked in, the working conditions are terrible with sweltering heats. The overall hygiene of the factory is not even worthy of a star in my experience, I could no longer stay there due to what I was seeing, how this place is still functioning is beyond me. My advice is look for other jobs before applying for this, they literally put mouldy chocolate on to the bars!.
Pros
The people you work with are great except the management
Cons
Everything
