Hard work, but pay & benefits was goo
Homeserve treated me well, it was just not the job for me at my age. But they were fair with me. The area I had to cover just got to large for me.They do give training, but experience in boiler installations really is a must.

Work life good management bad
Made you do a lot of the pay and the time you was given literally working away. Only colleagues made it good and specific managersKept adding more to job description but no sign of pay going up. Constantly busy with 300-400 calls in queue. System going down always One point for 3 days 1300 calls in queue just constantly on calls non stop working like a robot and normal breaks just beyond what a human can take mentally and physically. Management still just was concerned with targets and kpi though. Did show abit of appreciation but could have put the pay up as it was always busy and a lot to do and in the job description. Calls were getting more crazy as needed to do fix for boilers over the phone and then they was testing out another thing were we do everything on 1 call more or less (first time fix) but no sign of pay going up again but wanted that all in a 15 min call preferably.
Plumber in West Yorkshire
Terrible company to work for
Have a scheme called forced overtime. So you have to do overtime if you don't want it. Supervisors are good but higher up management are bell nds.If you have family don't work here as they don't care about them and wages are shocking for what you do its plumbing on shift pattern. Everybody started same time as me has left.
Don’t do it
I worked here for 4 years and was made redundant 3 times! There’s no job progression, even if you do manage to progress you will soon be knocked back down to the beginning, there’s no support from management if you need help, given jobs to do that you haven’t been trained for and then punished when unable to complete and if they want rid of you they will find a way trust me! It’s gone downhill massively since I first joined and it’s a breeding ground for bullying from above you! I loved my job which is a shame but the relief from knowing I no longer have to work there is unbelievable, the amount of people who just disappear in the middle of their shift is very worrying as you know they haven’t left or their own back and you are constantly under threat of redundancy no matter how much you are told you’re safe! The best part of the job was the perks, you get to join people serve which gives you discounts on a whole range of shops and also get £1000 to spend on smart tech with curry’s that then comes off your wage each month for the next 12 months, as I say that’s the best part of the job but certainly doesn’t make it worth it

Shocking treatment of employees
Managers with no experience with in the trade expected work every shift they throw at you also complete lack or respect for employees health or welfare in all honesty the worst company I have ever worked for if your unlucky enough to work in east anglia that was
