Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not a very nice place to work, the pay is not good but they expect you to move mountains, I was working as a mobile cleaner, in the morning they send jobs on your company phone ...in total sometimes you'll have to visit about twelve sites ..there's normally two ppl in one team,doing cleaning inside the building, hoovering, moping, sweeping, wiping windows, lifts ,cobwebs, then do litter picking in the car park, then dissenfect the bin areas, plus you've got to take about 15 pics every site and then send the pictures via email to the office (the system they use to send the pics is so slow) then you log out and onto the next and start all over again ,sometimes you're stuck in traffic going to another site, you'll get the office ringing you asking where you are if you haven't logged in on your next job, ⁷

Pros

Can't think of any

Good progression poor salary

Working for just ask has a few pros but a balance of the same cons, they try to progress staff (promote within) but will also try to cut resource. There are staff that have not had a pay rise for 2 years even when the company have worked continually throughout the lock downs. The contracts have very basic almost government basic perks.

Management needs a change....

The overall hours aren't bad (full time) and the other workers are relatively friendly, Unfortunately that's where the good stuff stops... Management don't care about any of their workers,Not enough work to do(literally sat around for most of the day. Extreme prejudice within the company and they only care about you when it starts affecting them(you take a day off) they only look out for themselves and let everyone else fend for themselves.

Pros

Full time

Cons

Management Not enough work

Terrible terrible work place stay clear

Where do I start? Id give mimus 10 stars if I could! There is way way to much workload they expect you to work magic cleaning 25 block in 7 hours, no point in saying nothing to the management they will run you into the ground no one listens pay is absolutely abysmal for the work you do please stay clear of this company for your own wellbeing and sanity

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Every single thing!

Stay Away

Appalling, honestly don't waste your time, they work you like trojan horses they expect way too much of you in a day, yet they don't give their staff the time of day, management if they can be called that are disgraceful, they don't listen to their staff, don't sort any problems that arise they are not interested at all, they are just out for themselves. How they can run a cleaning company is beyond me.All I can say is just stay away there has to be a better work place out there somewhere, with decent employers who would listen and appreciate their staff. If I could I wouldn't rate any stars but you have too. Look elsewhere.

Pros

Paid on time.

Cons

Take too long to write.

Shambles

Poor company! Supervisors are an actual joke only worked there for a few months and never got praised for anything just got moaned at for site standards even though there was nothing wrong with them! They were always quick to moan and whine and carry out investigations than pulling a finger out and actually helping. Got paired up with non drivers so had to do all the driving as well as pick them up and drop them off which makes your day even longer also colleagues absolutely bleed green say anything bad about it and there jumping down your throat to defend the place when it's really not worth it.The traveling alone is a joke spend more time driving from site to site then you do actually on the site itself. But yeah to sum it all up just a shambles of a company and would not recommend working there would rather sit on the dull then work there again. IF YOU WANT TO BE STUCK IN A DEAD END JOB WITH NO ROOM FOR PROGRESS AND GROWTH THEN GO AHEAD AND APPLY

Pros

Going home

Cons

The whole job

Don't bother

Dont even waste your time with the company, a bunch of cow boys! Management dont communicate unless its negative feedback, dont listen to their staff when problems arise they wait for the customer to complain, always over worked expected to do a 10+ hour day in the 7.5 hours allocated. Full of empty promises. Its always one rule for one and one rule for the others. Everyone is paid differently even though we are doing the same job. When you do bring things up to management you get spoken down to like you are something on their shoe. The list goes on just dont bother with the company

Pros

Dont weekends

Cons

List to long

Menagement and working hours very good

The menagement is good, always helpful and supportive. The working hours are great as well, as you have weekends off which is not very common for this industry. But don't expect to be rewarded for an extra afford, or even thanked.Salary is OK, always on time. They give you van and fuel card and you can park by your house, so there are no travel costs to and from the work.The main issue are demanding residents. Very rude, expect cleaning like in a five star hotel, but the mess they make between the visits is worse than in the pigshed. They look at you and speak to you like you're a piece of trash.

Pros

Good working hours, money on time, van and petrol card provided

Cons

Residents, travel time to your area, busy working schedule

Bad company

No support impossible work load. Staff collapse from daily exhausted. Told to cover 6 person job on own or not good enough. I collapse from work load taken to hospital. A+e doctor said work load impossible for the human body to cope with. Not even a Olympic athletic could covered that work load. High blood pressure risk heart attack due to accessive impossible work load. Managers don't give a dam

Pros

None

Cons

Excessive work load

Expect to much ,stressful job.

Put to many job's on the cleaners to do with out finding out first if they have time to do them they seem to think you have all the time in the world in 7&half hour's if they want placers cleaned properly with no conpants cut back on the jobs they are dumping on cleaners not put more on, they haven't a clue, cleaners are the one's who do the job ask them if they would have time.

Pros

Pay on time

Cons

To much work load, don't get proper break which you are entitled to.

Terrible company to work for

I have been with the company for 3 and a half years during that time the company has grown, double the work load 2yrs no pay rise, treated poorly by the HR department who is a complete shambles, board of directors only think about the profit margins and disregard the loyal and dedicated team members, I would not recommend anyone applying for a job with this company as the staff retention is very poor

Pros

None

Cons

The company as a whole

dont bother

i have never worked for such a shambles of a company. No repsect or thanks for any of your hard work, pay peanuts, they couldnt care less about you or your wellbeing as long as your working and making the greedy people their money. management is a joke, all clicky but if your one of the top earners then you will be all right as they have all got their heads up each others back sides. its pathetic, no loyalty everyone is two faced and slags each other off behind their backs, if you dont fit you get made redundant, they track your every move, worst job i have ever had i would seriously re consider if you are thinking of joing this joke of a company. if you want to feel worthless, underappreciated, over worked and treated as if your nothing then apply

Pros

no
