Haven as a company have you believe that they look after the staff no sorry “team”. When in reality it’s all about profit turn over. During the pandemic last year the department I worked in had ran out of sanitizer Within a week of opening! And refused to order more! Managers don’t seem to care about you as a person you are just a number and easily replaced. Zero job security. Stupid hours with lest than 7 hours between shifts sometimes. Would never recommend any one to suffer with this company.
Pros
Non
Cons
Long hours

I worked for haven for 10 years. Working all over England and wales within this time learning all the skills to move up within the company . For 4 years I interviewed for promotion to entertainments manager each time not being successful saying I had 1 more thing to master before moving on up. Each year it was a new thing I needed to learn. Meanwhile watching people start fresh within the company with no knowledge moving up to management within a year while I was still trying after 10 years. Its not about what you bring to the job at haven its all about what you are willing to do for your job and that wasn't for me so I left with what I had gain from the job after 10 years and did the same job for a different company within 6 months was made manager.
Pros
Live by the sea
Cons
Long hoursand not always paid for them all

Overall a great place to work friendly team and great management, great opportunities to progress and basically a fun and friendly place to work!! Although after giving year after year of great work there unfortunately you are just a number to them! You put your heart and sole into a company to just be let go with no consideration for the years of hard work, long hours and total dedication, so yes amazing place to work just don't get to invested in them as they'll only remember the one bad thing about. Such a shame!!
Pros
Great place to work, amazing opportunities and fun team
Cons
No recognition or remorse towards good, hard working team!!

I have worked for Papa Johns mainly inside Haven. I got along well with co workers and the manager, there can be some challenges too during summer holidays. I recommend applying especially if go to Uni or college as they offer loads of hours during the summer peak times.
Pros
Free lunches & amazing team
Cons
Seasonal only

Cleaners are treated disgusting, made to clean a whole caravan from top to bottom with an hour, no help given unless you will be late for a customer but will be left until last minute. The checkers do not help at all and think they are so much above physical cleaning. Simple tasks that you may have missed or marks that cannot be seen in certain lights, you are made to do. Which could be on the other side of the park, for a quick two minute job they could do. This then puts you behind and then you are blamed for. The heat is outrageous in the summer. Not being able to go for breaks as there is not time.
Pros
Money off park facilities
Cons

The management and colleagues are lovely to work with and Haven pay fairly. Good training and support for new cleaners. Location is great!Can be very hard work unless you know when to say no!! Haven don't hesitate to book out all their caravans at once even if they know they only have a small Cleaning team to prepare them... so it can make work quite difficult and rushed in the peak of the season.
Pros
Fair pay, flexible hours, nice staff
Cons
A lot of work..

For the most part it is a high grade company to work for as the management are professional and show integrity on an individual basis. Also this is the second review I have completed for this company.
Cons

Honestly what else can I say. The people are quite nice but you can kinda tell the company expects maximum effort for minimum pay. Alright job if you need money but definitely not a career I could stay in.
Pros
Subsidised food
Cons
Low pay, weird shifts

The only problem with this job it’s only seasonal would be be better if it’s all year round. I knew what I was going into but the fact that you have to go back to the drawing board in terms of looking out for another job is very stressful especially with this horrible virus going round (COVID -19) makes even worse.
Pros
Good Management
Cons
Seasonal Only
