Zero professional progress

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Had a great time working in AP until I transferred to the Home Office and DfT departments. Dreadful manager on Home Office Small Works, probably the worst I've ever experienced. DfT wasn't so bad but the manager had zero people skills and struggled to communicate with her team. They don't encourage professional development at all in this company which means people will be working 3 or 4 years in the same position and will not even be offered a training course to improve their skills. Overall a poor experience. Wouldn't recommend for anyone to work here.

Wages wrong every payday.

I been working for mitie as a mobile cleaner over 2 years now. Long hours split shifts constant last minute changes to my schedule. Management is changing every few months so you not sure who to contact. No support or help from management. New work place plus is a joke. Wages are wrong every month . Avoid surly better jobs out there.

Poor

Poor in every aspect apart from work life balance, although this has to be sacrificed to work rest days, to take wages up to a liveable level. Training particularly poor with no effective mentoring programme in place.

Good company

This is a good company to work for, good communication from managers and interesting variety of sites to work on.You can see all of your shifts online and they can be flexible.

Pros

Variety and opportunities if you want them

Cons

Different shifts, lower end of pay

Terrible

Pay is terrible unless your face fits or are related to a boss. No chance of advancement or better pay. Two faced and not valued or listened to, better off anywhere else

Pros

Quiting

Cons

Low pay, on call, machines are in bad order and never properly fixed. wait months on uniform or new boots.

It's a okay company

I have worked for several different security companies. Mitie is a okay company, not good and not bad. My collegues are great, help is always at hand when needed.

Never work for them

A company that doesn't care about you. I have a lot of painful things to say about this job experience. Just be smart and never work for Mitie. They pretend to be this so cool company, they are not. Go work for a local business, it will be much better than working for mitie.

Do not work for mitie

Pay queries every month and unhelpful in dealing with queries raised. Management often put staff down and foster a demotivating culture letting staff know that they will not have the chance to progress.

A first class company to work for

My role was temporary but the experience was excellent an amazing company to work for. Recommend them to anybody, if you have a chance to become permanent do so, I will be keeping an eye out for a permanent role.

Pros

Free training on subjects outside of your remit

Cons

None

Horrendous company

What an absolute s@#t show of a company. Honestly management at baglan Swansea were laughable. Amongst them were bully's and generally not nice people. After a year of working for mitie I quickly made a sharp exit. If I could give anyone advice it would be stay away from these jokers
