Productive and fun workplace

I have worked for almost 5 years at Menzies,at London Heathrow,loved every moment and every day,even survived three rounds of redundancies. Only reason I had to leave was for better company and advancement in career.Learned a lot here and would recommend to anyone who likes working at airport.

Exploitative employer

Staff are underpaid and over worked. There is no work life balance as they do not hire enough staff to do the work and to make any money you need to be there most of the time. I used to do 50+ hours a week for around 20k. Often overtime was missed out of paycheck and you had to fight them every month for what you were owed.

Pros

Good colleagues, interesting work.

Cons

Long hours, missing wages.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Respect employees more

Management non existent and the pay isn’t commensurate with the tasks you’re expected to carry out on a day to day basis. Workplace culture generally ok.

Avoid this company

The mansgment is inexistent . Very poory managed. Poor training. Manager always talking bad behind your back. Asking you to work in a place where you’re not even trained and by any chance you mess up you will get the whole blame

Pros

None

Cons

A me first attitude from the management

A lot of passing the bucket around.People causing incidents not owing up to it, while others are being snitch on.Management not willing to take responsibility, taking things out of proportion.

Terrible & depressing place

If you want to die early then work for them.Shift hours are unsociable and very long; you only get a 30 minute break for the whole shift. You’re worked like a Dog and Management & supervisors don’t care for your health & wellbeing.

Pros

None

Cons

Stressful with little flexibility

Colleagues were great but management were not very accessible or helpful, also not a lot of training was given and little to no flexibility with work arrangements.

The company is not bad but the station is rubbish

The company is not bad but Luton Station is the most unprofessional place that I ever seen. The main problem start from recruiting, they recruit without any guidelines. As result you find backstabbers and awful colleagues (some of them are nice and friendly)Management is the worst thing here, Senior Managers they don't know what's the meaning of improvements, they only care about themselves.If you will work for this station make sure the hours that you work are on the system otherwise you will not get paid correctly.Pro: -Double pay on overtime during summer -Working 6 day on and 3 off

Good experience and great people

Learnt a lot of valuable skills whilst working. Good balance between admin and customer service but mostly customer service. Shift work.The staff and the people you meet are the ones that truly make the job. Great social culture. Down times during quiet periods are the best, not busy all year round.

Pros

Great people. Down times and busy times

Cons

Unsociable hours, underpaid, no benefits
Was this review helpful?

Not a good company

I would avoid this company at all cost. management is terrible pay is even worseForced to do extra work with no pay. staff turnover is very high staff is not appreciated Favoritism runs deep within this company. Not equal opportunity all depends on who you know in order to progress. good for students or part time work only Fulltime salary is a joke and not enough to cover costs.

Team culture

Pros

Support from colleagues and managers on shift

Cons

Bag loads can be heavy

Dire depressing place

Dire depressing demoralising absolute shambles of a place to work putting inexperienced people into management positions which shows in the nonsense they download of computers no common sense involved at all . You would think they would grasp how bad place is with the high turnover of staff leaving

Fast paced but antisocial hours

It's a good job if you like being physical. It is rather fun however the hours are totally out of place. You can finish late afternoon and be back in the early morning. There's very much a management against everyone dynamic going on, so if you're aren't a manager or supervisor you're pretty much a nobody. And if you want to progress your career in the company you will need to be good friends with one of the managers.
