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

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
Pros
money but its danger money
Cons
everything else.

Pros
Great work culture, decent hours that fly by quick, decent wages, weekly pay
Cons
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.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Irregular shifts

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.
Pros
Friendly co workers
Cons
Being sent home when you turn up for a shift

Pros
None

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.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Masses of errors with hours and pay rates

as always with agency work it wasn't the most secure of jobs always having to be on call and never know whether you are working 1 day to 5 days one week to the next, though the work was easy enough
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No hot food

Meridian Business Support industrial is not trust worthy they don't think about any of the candidates or offer any long lasting work. They promise you much more then they can offer.

Fun place to work, good work to life ratio. Hardest part of the job was the 12 hour shifts. Management communicated well with all the staff. A typical day was 08.00-20.00 on a 4 on 4 off shift
Pros
Cheap food
Cons
Long hours
