Management WILL let you down

Hammonds used to be a good company to work for. However they will now have you driving all over the country with no fuel payment. 8 out 10 jobs you fit will fail due to poor packaging/handling of materials or survey issues. This is down to surveyors having little/no product knowledge You will get NO back up from the management team - they are a disgrace. The company no longer has a quality control department, you are expected to inspect parts and report any issues. As a result you will NOT get paid until any issues are rectified. Basically you are expected to fit a premium priced product that is fit for the skip !!

Waste of time

Waste of time if your a carpenter . Every thing is tailored to suit them , you have to store there furniture deliver it and fit it , they don’t care if u can’t park or if in a flat anything over a certain weight is surposed to be delivered by a 2 man delivery team it won’t be u will have to deal with it . Parking permit s are never arranged should be . You will not get full weeks they will expect u to give notice to them on jobs but can cancel all your work for that week they don’t care if leaving u with nothing, always damaged or missing part or surveys messed up u will have to go back to these jobs for the original days money to complete after wAiting for parts they will hold your money till u go back if u can’t get there when they want there send someone else and charge u , if customers acuse you of damage ie marking a wall they will side with them and charge u basically the pitfalls are endless and you will lose money avoid at all costs

Total rubbish

Run by people with no knowledge of management at all. No support, no stability, terrible pay. I believe the Area Manager borrowed a book from the library, and learned all he knows from that. This book was clearly published in 1920.

Simply awful.

What can I say about this place other than awful, boring, bad rates of pay, no real support from management, I had only been working there a few days and I was left totally alone to look after the place. Not good!!!
