Terrible place

Bad place to work.All mistakes coming from office and you need to be magician to make your job successful.They will blame you for everyting and you will never get help to improve yourself.Awful company! They have no respect for employees and it’s badly managed. Everyone there is worried about there jobs so are always passing blame. I feel sorry for the next person to work there, as they are constantly paying out For unfair/constructive dismissal

King trailers

Awful company! They have no respect for employees and it’s badly managed. You can arrive to work half hour early to work for two years, but the day you leave 10 mins early they deduct half hour as you are required to clock in and out. Everyone there is worried about there jobs so are always passing blame. I feel sorry for the next person to work there, as they are constantly paying out For unfair/constructive dismissal

Pros

Pay above minimum wage

Cons

Bad management

What a joke

After serving three month I was dismissed for a load of rubbish and given a envelope not to take it any further. All the managers are stealing and directors dont want anything to do with knowing what is going off. I had video evidence still not bothered. Joke joke joke
