Disgrace of a company, office workers have no morals

Office staff don't give you midweek work if you don't take a weekend shift with 2 hours notice, only give you one shift a week 90% of the time and if you complain for more work it gets took off you. Alot of favouritism and office workers take shifts from rail workers and put themselves out as point ops. In all the companys a joke, the office workers are liers with no morals, salary is attorocious and

Pros

none

Cons

working with people who have no disclosure, men driving work vans with previous convictions who have hurt other people. All round joke.

No job security average money

Find out when and where you were working 4 days in advance. mixture of nights and days you had no say in this. The best part of this job was getting home earlier than expected and when this didn't happen people were fed up. Average job getting average money not worth it.

Avoid

If I could rate 0 stars, I would. Got promised time and a half after 8 hours and racked up 10 hours overtime in a week to then be told we don't pay overtime. Avoid this company. Plus they pay rubbish compared to other agencies.

Pros

None.

Cons

Wrong pay, rude staff, overall useless.

Good company

Good company to work for if you are flexible and don't have personal commitments to work around. Salary has been an issue and is the main reason I am looking for a new career.

Productive and fun workplace

Working on the railways although a hard job working long hours was ultimately rewarding with a decent salary and a good chance of advancement. I started off like most people on the shovel but quickly got myself upto coss (controller of site safety) level. I worked mainly doing track renewals nationwide.

Pros

Worked outside allover the country

Cons

Long hours hard labour

Unorganised and unprofessional

Right I have been working with then for around 8months I get paid weekly, not 1 wage has been right I would advise you to check and double check your money. When I told them about this they would take up to 2 weeks to pay what they owe me, I have left the company now but they still owe me monies and its not just a few quid. It's all empty prosmises and a load of s£&t that they say. I would avoid this agency big time trust me don't say no1 did not tell you guys

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours for little pay

Unsociable

A typical day at work would be travelling for over two hours to the place of work before you even start, a learned quite a lot while doing this job as i was a Controller of Site Safety, it's a job that's very unsociable, the hardest part of the job was not knowing what work i had planned for the following week for myself until the friday before, this is why i'm looking for a more career wise job.

Pros

Free travel

Cons

Long travelling
