Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
fun place to work, lot of shifts available and plenty of overtime during busy times, various roles you can get training in, management could delegate tasks more fairly to agency workers

One Big family

Has a real family feel to the business eventhough it has branches dotted around the UK. Great support network in place. Regular contact with management team and praise for doing a good job

Warehouse Operative

Having read, various reviews, I wouldn't if I had the chance again, even consider working for this agency, they tell you what you want to hear, at this moment in time, the work isn't there, so you are stood around ok you are getting paid for it. But the morning shift is in the pipe line of being got rid of, then in the later stages of January/ February you then get laid off, if its job security you are looking for I wouldn't even consider this Agency ( MERIDIAN) NEXT themselves, I found the management to be good, I didn't have No problem with them, if you do your job, your ok, but obviously if you just stand around you deserve to get a telling off, but they are more relaxed than hard on you, the Next management, the Meridian lot are a waist of space!! The Team trainers are great, deserve better than they are getting off there employers, oh, and you've to work BANK HOLIDAYS at single time you don't even get a day back,

Pros

Subsidised canteen

Cons

You are given, a set shift if you don't like it, you've No chance of a job

Shocking

Worst job I have had the training was average but 70% of it is not used for the actually job! Job is incredibly stressful and shocking pay for the abuse and stress it gets. The clinicians within the company are extremely rude and patronising

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours, poor pay, extremely hard to get time off and poor training

One of the worst jobs i've ever had

Was employed as a recruitment consultant within the construction sector, started with a team of 5 which dwindled down to just me and 1 other. Was regularly told to lie to people about the length of job required, we'd know the work was only for 2 weeks but would have to tell them it was for 2 months or longer. These people would come off jobseekers to do just 2 weeks work. The hours are incredibly long and a large part of the day was leaving voicemails.

Pros

Nothing I can think of

Cons

Long hours, poor management, lying culture

Bonus pay non existent had one Bonus pay in 6 months

Not the best for pay increases to what you do. Work harder than people who are on contract yet treatment like a 2nd class citizen. Also many people who knew the job were released of duties yet still recruiting. No progress follow ups unless it was a negative report

Rubbish

Meridian is such a rubbish job, they hired a bunch of us for an induction , we got the job and was given the choice to work Sunday - Thursday or Tuesday to Saturday. But they lied and made us work days we didn’t agree too . They fired us randomly after 5 days with no explanation or reason . Don’t waste your time working for them THEY WILL USE YOU FOR FREE LABOURRRR

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

No.

This job is unprofessional and unfair . They started firing random people without listening to their reasons or telling them why they fired you and when you try to call or get in touch they don’t read or answer your messages. Diverse but they have people who look at you differently and talk down on you if your doing something wrong . Training is given but sometimes they don’t teach you how to do things and then your left to make your own decision that could be wrong. Also the 9 and a half hours work with a 40 minute break ?

Pros

Some nice staff

Cons

Long hours and environment
