Did not stay long enough to tell you about the day

Welfare facilities are a health hazard, dirty filthy absolutely appalling how a company can get away with this in 202 , and the workers are totally subservient who never had any better and don't know any better, after seeing welfare like that I knew to expect the worst and jrl met my worst nightmares having survived 30 years of heavy construction I left site within 5 minutes of my first job task and felt a gush of relief to get safety off site, do not be fooled by polite phone conversations making you think everything is rosy do yourself a favour Etc. Etc. Etc

Pros

The exit

Cons

The entrance

Terrible

Full of bullies and false promises! The management think they’re something special and never listen to a word you say! Best thing about the job is home time.

Pros

Good group of lads

Cons

Terrible management

Avoid them..

There health and safety on site is 0 No one wear mask. No social distance. Welfare facilities are too poor to describe. Changing room always stink with bed smell. Sign boards are missing. They are forcing people to finish the project..as they are delayed due to corona...full of stressful and unhappy managers

Pros

Your work direct for them so no hassle.

Cons

Health and safety is 0 wearing a ppe doesn’t mean that healthy safety is done.

Culture is nice but work load is immense

When I started the culture was nice, with the introduction of management and re structuring I feel the culture has changed slightly. The people are nice to work along, good perks of gym and free coffee bar, good work outings. No HR so employees don't feel heard, they feel they are not appreciated, it not just me several people there felt de-motivated with new qualified staff coming in and less opportunities for progression for existing staff. Overall I learnt a lot and appreciated to opportunity to work for such a company. There was an immense workload when i was working here with then some processes where implemented just before i left. The management/ managers can do with more training on proper management they are highly skilled but some lack management of people skill. Hardest part of the job was working over the hours contracted hours 45 but most weeks I used to work 60 to 70 hours just to finish work that was required. I felt as through there was no work and life balance. Most enjoyable part is the people in the business and the culture as well as the benefits of 24 hour access and gym, coffee and employee outings.

Excellent

Worked for JRL for just over two years, seen huge progession in job role & salary. Great people to work with and always a good work night out! I have had two firiends join the group while ive been here and both have not regretted it. As far as ive seen everything from safety to enviromental awareness is taken seriously and always new ideas being implamented to improve.

Pros

Salary/Progression/Benefit package

Cons

Yet to experience any

Good company, great people!

I worked in JRL Group for 4 years, would still be there if I didn't have to move home! I worked in the Environmental team and I loved it! The days are busy but it's worth it as you learn so much and can quickly progress in your role. They trust you to get the work done. Good site teams and nice offices, there's a gym in the office which we could use for free which is always a plus! There is always something going on, team bonding, cycling events or charity hikes etc. so it's a great company if you like getting involved in that sort of thing or if you are an active person.

Pros

Career Progression

Cons

The only con was that I had to leave

Good outfit

They paid me well and gave me plenty of opportunity to show what I could do. I left in the end as the travelling became too much. Hopefully they will get some work further north in the future so I can go back

Pros

Challenging and pay well

Never seen anything like it

I formally use to drive excavators , 8 years ago worked my way up to a site manager , after 8 years I thought I will get a job as an excavator driver just to relax for a couple of month , so I joined JRL , what really struck me the most was safety I mean is nonexistent and worksman not appreciated at all ; black hats on site I mean for real I will not have them in any of my jobs but I guess JRL is match for them , welfare the dirtiest u ever seen not really suitable for people to use , I mean I can write a book about JRL

Pros

Some good people on site then again there nothing to do with JRL they same like u and I

Cons

Everything
