I’ve been working for a logistics company in Yeovil for Honeywell aerospace, currently I’ve been there 4 months and am loving it! Pay is really good, really nice people to work with and get lots of opportunities. The only down side as I’m an agency worker my contract can end anytime. Other than that meridian is amazing and offer so much support! Thank you
They are a fantastic company and very friendly people who are easy to talk to and will help you with anything work related
This is one of the best agencies I’ve ever seen, the are so friendly and kind, they do so much for you as well as check up on you after a couple of weeks when you start a placement just to see if you are getting on alright.I would highly recommend meridian to anybody looking for work.What a fantastic company :)
Good hours and good money
Me and another guy was told we are to go onto Night Shift at a rate of pay of just over £10 we worked on Nights for a few weeks when we received our wage slips online we found out our wages were way below the said amount when i contacted Meridian i was told they had made a mistake and the wage for nights is the lower amount when i have worked for the company for 3 months i go onto the higher rate of pay the thing is my contract with the company was only for two months , pure con artists they are as much use as a fire exit door in a dinghy !!!!!!!
You will be on a constant watch not aiding in mental health but literally sat down for 14 hours staring at someone. you can only go to the toilet with permission probably 3 times. you cant go outside prison for your dinner. they dont give you any breaks and you fight for your dinner. I was physically attacked
money but its danger money
I worked there for a week before being offered another job and I very much enjoyed my time there; there was always work to do, the managers were great and supportive and the operatives were very helpful and friendly.
Great work culture, decent hours that fly by quick, decent wages, weekly pay
Occasionally get sent home early if there is not enough work to do
For a temporary job for example with college or school this is an ideal job as the shifts are paid above average and the hours are quite nice. The job itself ranges from casual to formal events and the stress at the event can massively vary. If you do not accept many shifts however you are less likely to get more shifts, the more you work the higher priority you will be when shifts are advertised.
Don't work for this agency, they will waste your time and travel expenses by confirming a shift then sending you home once you have turned up and you will get no compensation for this. They always ask for more people to come in than they need in case workers don't turn up.....so it's all for their convenience not yours, which in my opinion is wrong. The sweeteners they provide such as free hot drinks and discounted food market are little comfort for those that are sent home when they wanted to stay and earn some money.
Friendly co workers
Being sent home when you turn up for a shift
Lack of hours always getting pay wrong and when questioned about pay said will get back but never do!!! Management waste of time just promises just keeps employing & long time staff get less & less work .
Not enough hours
working for this agency is rubbish they keep you on for a couple of months then get rid of you then when they get rid of you it affects your rent so i would not recommend working for them my friends never got their holiday pay paid either they are just users only want you when worknow load is down your meet their targets they let people down all time and they let people go to work drunk too so I wouldn't even waste my breath on them I will never work for them again and I was getting different amounts on my wages too so disappointed
canteen was good for food and drinks
long hours longer breaks needed and longer contrats need to be offered
I worked with them for 6 months and they messed my my wages up every week. I did overtime n didn’t get paid. Work place dirty, and managers always shouting at foundry staff. Agency man gives people hard time. Was put on nights but didn’t ask for it. Would never work for them again.
Long hours, poor pay, messed up wages.
Not only did the consistantly get the hours wrong that the client (nhs) had available but I had an email prior to starting a 12 week weekend contract, which stated I would be on double time on Sundays and time and a half on Saturdays. Only after starting work did I find out I would only be on £7.50 for the entire 12 weeks! Meridian would not honour the rate they first told me I would get. They also kept my holiday money as I didn't ask for it and at the end of Dec it vanishes. I assumed I would be paid any holiday pay owed to me Very happy to leave Meridian. Never want to go back.
Masses of errors with hours and pay rates
