Not a fun work place, not much went on. Felt tedious. The work wasn't enjoyable and the layout of the kitchen was frustrating, the customers was not friendly.

Staff are useless and didn’t pay me until a week of constant phone calls. Kept being told I would be called back and was never contacted once by them. Never working for them again. Was also told £12 per hour only to find out a week after working that it was £11
Pros
None

Most of the times I worked for them, I would say every single time I worked for them, they paid less then it was agreed. Every time I had to be stressed and had to call them to fight for my money. Every single time. Always.
Pros
you can always leave Optima and find a job somewhere else instead
Cons
low rates and constant cheating

I've got no complaints about Optima, I was paid the right amount, on time every week. The agent I dealt with was friendly and helpful kept me up to date with my job.

They are a buch of liars, agreed for a rate per day and got paid £20 less(per day) . They offer me a "long term job" in Bath which in reality was for a day cover for a guy going for a wedding. They are a shame for crane industry!
Pros
Good liars
Cons
Wasting people time. Respect is missing. Arrogants

Dont believe a word this company's says. They will lie to you whatever the cost. Was told ongoing work with overtime ect and when I got here it was only a days work. They then decided to fleece me out of hours and the woman on the phone was very rude when I asked about this. She said as she dont get paid for break time no one else does. This is against the law.

Unlike other reviews left by illiterate and most probably fake ex employees, I have had a constructive relationship with Optima as a Painter/Decorator over a period of about 5 years. I found them helpful, informed, polite and a pleasure to work for. Their background checks are stringent and in-depth and well needed. I have been employed by them on 4 different contracts/occasions and have never had any problems. Recommended. Simples.
Pros
Good wages, quick payment
Cons
Shell company margin, but hey we all have to pay it.
