Productive

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced. No team effort. Rubbish wage for any other housekeeping work, more like deep cleaning so wage low. Needs better communication. Carrying too much heavy stuff

Honestly… one of the best companies I’ve worked at

Been here for a little while now and I’ve enjoyed it as much as when I first joined. Great company culture where they do believe in looking after staff. Open to feedback and the promote learning and development in many levels.Easy going company with a great ambition. The work can be fast paced and at points of the year stressful especially in summer.

Pros

Good company culture and work colleagues

Cons

Occasional evening and weekend work, On call everyday of week for emergencies a bit hard to switch off.

Toxic managers, low pay

The worst management I’ve ever came across. I was belittled on a daily basis and was constantly reassured ‘that’s your job not mine’, when asking for simple advice and my job role didn’t entail what was being asked of me. Felt sick going into work having to deal with passive aggressive emails and angry managers over the most ridiculous situations. Didn’t feel going to HR was going to stay confidential or help the scenario. Would not advise to work for this company.

Good company, poor management

The job is secure and lovely with the chance of promotions, but unskilled people can ruin it. There is no real communication between site teams and head office or regional managers. Only the site manager is linked to the higher managment and it’s a matter of luck if you get a good one (team-player, hard working and fair manager) or a bad one (coming late & leaving early, not appreciating or supporting the site team, poor managment over all etc.).

Poorly managed, terrible hours, lazy co-workers

The OM is lazy and always leaves early, gives you no support, most co-workers are always late and do very little work, the maintenance and housekeeping staff are great

Painting to rooms / kitchens and communal hallways

We were painting student rooms and kitchens after it were used by students. I came across sellotape/ blue tack and scuff mark's on the walls which I over painted with 2 coats of vinyl silk paint.

Progression opportunities but poor pay

Progression opportunities but poor pay. Appeared to be moving more corporate in culture than people focused. If your looking for a change in career i'd still recommend this company

Housekeeper

Great management, friendly staff and very helpful. I meet lot’s of people because I was housekeeper. I have learned a lot of cultures with them because I keep all cultures of all nationalities and to the best of my knowledge do something for them. I really enjoyed working here.

Friendly, open and fun office environment

Office environment is friendly, open and genuine. The team work like a little family, and everyone pulls together when the time calls for it. Management is understanding, and displays a very warm and 'human' element toward staff. Really enjoy my time working here, really inviting, stable and interesting role.

Pros

Good team, Fun work environment, People Based Job, Secure and steady tasks

Cons

Alternate shifts, early and late
