Machine Operator in Canterbury, Kent
on 11 March 2020
Out of date equipment
Over the 7 years worked , wages took 5 years to get a rise The management simply don"t listen or don"t want to You have to (brown nose)to get anywhere Only the managers favourites seem to get anywhere or continually get away with wrong doing . Very bad working atmosphere i.e dust particles in the air .. Everywhere Would not recommend unless all new management were to take over .

Poor management, poor inter departmental communication
Not a company to build a career at, shift work 4 days on 4 days off alternating between day and night shifts, poor management, lack of communication. Good for gaining experience in the industry

Ancient processes, inept management and pay actually goes down!!
Terrible place to work and be associated with. Ancient processes that are older than most of its employees. The worst type of corporate environment where no one wants to answer anything, or needs approval from 19 people to get anything done (which never eventually happens). Sums everything up when they bring out a new processes (which take months to get slightly usable) and not even the directors know how to use it. No progression, poor pay - somehow they manage to actually take money off of people. Not surprised it’s gone into administration, I’m just surprised someone’s bought it. I imagine it won’t last long, and their incompetence will soon catch up with them. The business just thinks of the ‘right now’ and not the day/week/year away. Mistakes on all orders deliveries/invoices. Company can’t get much right. GOOD LUCK
Sales Developer in West Sussex

An awful experience
Worked as a Sales Developer for 6 months. Highly pressured environment and bombarded with calls. System is outdated and inefficient and the Manager has unrealistic expectations. No support and company will terminate your position at a moments notice. Avoid at all costs as no job security.
