Friendly staff and supervisers, I had a laugh while working, very relaxed company to work for. As the staff are around the same age there is no atmosphere.

Getting up at 5am to get into work for 6, then starting work after knowing which tesm i will be working with for that day, different area can be difficult but some are easy enough to where you will be finished at 2 and going home to enjoy the rest or the day but id rather put the hard work in knowing i was able to go home early it was an easy enough job until it rained and then getting wet pushing heavy bins around but it was easy enough to keep you head down and crack on.
Pros
Early days
Cons
Bad weather

I enjoy my job although it is getting harder due to budget cuts more is expected. A lot of change in recent years due to new legislation. Very challenging and rewarding.
Pros
discount of council run gyms
Cons
budget cuts means more work.
