I had some real fun at JM and it was very well paid for the work you did (due to 12 hour shifts, weekends and nights) the work itself is fast paced and easy once you get the hang of it. Progress is very limited but if you manage to show your worth and determination its not impossible.
Pros
Lunch pay. Good salary. Friendly staff.
Cons
12 hour nights and weekends. Temp work. Poor management. No room for progression.

Lovely people here, always good to talk to and make your working day a lot brighter! Always things to do but not too much that you’re rushed off your feet.

Lying/deceiving management who are not understanding in any situation. When you start you are looked down on by any management of any kind. Only thing that got me through working there was colleagues but nevertheless was like being in prison for 12 hours a day!!!
Pros
Money is good but not worth it
Cons
Awful hours, dirty/loud working conditions, horrible management

A lot of promises during the interview that were never followed through. The agency is completely incompetent, JM doesn't care at all about agency staff. If you want money, good, but you're paying with your health. No matter what they say, you are in contact with a lot of chemical dust. Don't believe management. 1.5 years i was there.

They award staff that do a good days work with a decent salary and a choice for overtime. The staff canteen was always very good and a good choice of food. There pension scheme is also very good.

Great company for benefits and salary. A few areas of grave concern particularly management and work ethic; being told in first week they 'preferred to have appointed a male for the role' by female manager wasnt great - this amongst other very concerning attitudes of some staff including poor work ethic was a red light.

Excellent location for me, brilliant benefits, worked with some lovely people who will be life long friends, but feel let down now being made redundant. I have enjoyed my time here but unsure I would recommend as the staff turnover seems high

When I spoke to people about me working at JM I was told be a number of people that it is not a nice place to work, hence why the pay a good salary and have many other benefits. All I can say is how right they were.

Very chilled and flexible place to work. Free lunches on site, amazing pension, bonuses. The only issue was to leave 5 minutes before time or be late even 1 minute. There is strict security check so if you finish job at 17 you won't be out before 17.15-17.20. So people asked to start 10 minutes sooner and leave sooner but this seemed to be a huge deal for management.

Constant management move around and removal. Decisions all based on the cheapest options rather than the correct ones. Very concerning security and IT issues.

Overall good, but could easily be greatly improved by enhancing the staff benefits; not be greatly increasing the budget for this, but simply by guiding staff to focus more on their on health through sports/exercise/yoga/diet/etc.
