Nice work.

The manager was very nice, He helped me in everything. I've always been paid well. They gave me uniform and training. The job site is nice, I have nothing negative to say.

Excellent Job

I worked with Orian Solutions for about 2 years, and enjoyed my time there. I always wanted to work more then the hours I had, but they always said that they wasn't enough money in the pot. I did enjoy it though, and would definitely work there again if I was given more hours then the 3 hours a week I got, ':)

Over worked

Not a good company you dont get paid for working over your time. Too many extras to do on top of your own work. Never enough cleaning products available to do the job

looking to escape soon

Bad management pass the buck, blame everyone else but themselves. Not organised, like politicians, to get a vote. Lie to employees, harass employees, low wages....long hours. Let employees down, relative of mine died, when l first started to work with Orian, was not allowed to grieve!...

Orian

It was good. Quite tying working every evening, and would not be ideal with my education. I learnt how to clean professionally and how to efficiently deal with any issues. For a 16 year old it was good money and my colleagues were very friendly and approachable.

absolutely awful place to work for

Shockingly awful place to work for, the managers are to blame for this as they do not look after their staff whatsoever!! bully tactics are used to in order to get staff to work places and travel to God knows where while other staff sit on their backsides doing nothing!! Im very surprised a lot of places haven't cancelled their contracts as half the places are absolutely filthy or shifts just aren't covered if bully tactics haven't worked!!! I feel sorry for the Co-ordinators , they are absolutely used and abused, doing managerial jobs , they don't get paid for doing manager jobs so I suggest managers and other higher paid employees get off your backsides and do the jobs yourselves!!awful awful company!!! Staff are not looked after whatsoever so I recommend steering clear of this company at all costs!!

Pros

absolutely nothing

Cons

everything

Good working environment

Started my job as a Finance Assistant last month and have found Orian as a very welcoming and supportive company. There is a friendly working environment and I have found it very easy to settle in. The work varies on a day to day basis with different challenges which keeps me occupied throughout the week. Would highly recommended Orian as a company to work for.

Pros

Pay/benefits, friendly workplace.

Friendly place to work

I joined Orian in April 2013 as HR Advisor and my role is to provide guidance and best practice advice on the full range of HR matters. What I enjoy the most about the job is that it varies from day to day. As the business has grown, I am now also the first point of contact for HR advice for our subsidiary companies (North & South Lakes Services) and in 2017 I was promoted to Senior HR Advisor. I now lead three other people in the HR team.

Pros

Meeting new people, friendly workplace.

Nice job

Workmates are fine but managment not really helpfull. Place where I did work was pretty nice and people was really good. Everyone was helping each other.

Shocking. Stay away if you can.

Bullies .management give no support to workers. Make promises and don't keep them. Work you into the ground. Corrupt all the way up. Avoid if possible. They have no concern for your safety at all. Look elsewhere is my advice.

Pros

Nice co workers

Cons

Long hours. They xontact you when ur on leave and expect you to jump.

Very enjoyable place to work, school children and staff all friendly and work as a team

I love this job!!! It works well with me having 2 young boys and obviously fits around school times and holidays. I collect meals from Langwathby, drive to Culgaith school set up the dining area, serve the children (approx 48) their lunch, clear down ad tidy the dining area and return to Langwathby to wash the pots etc. The people I work alongside are very pleasant and friendly and we all work exceptionally well as a team.

Pros

fits in well with my children - school drop off/pick up and school holidays

Cons

Not enough hours
