4 Years on and the best move I have ever made

I joined this company 4 years ago and took a bit of a risk joining. It was a new industry to me. I have never regretted it one bit. Having worked in only a few different industries I was nervous about the scrap game.The company offer good rewards for hard workers and grafters, pay well and the management look after loyal staff. They do not however suffer fools. The business is too fast paced and busy to have staff who do not pull their weight.In the 4 years I have worked for them I have seen a few people leave on bad terms but 95% of them end up calling back within a few months asking for their job back.The staff environment sees many employees ending up good friends. I have met a good few here myself.The loyalty and support shown by the owner to the staff that have shown it to him is unparalleled in other businesses. I have a teenage son and would happily see him work for Redcorn when he is old enough - You can't say any better than that as family is everything.

fast paced and friendly

Worked at the company for 5 years, management were always excellent with me. Salary is very good. Never had any issues with managers but as with any company some employees moan but only the ones that want to do little work for the money. From my experience if you are hard working and dedicated this company will look after you.


excellent salary, nice atmosphere


Parking unless you get to work a little bit earlier

Bad experience

Worked here for less than a month. Days were promoted 7-4 but realistic you are expected to do 12 hours days. Health and safety is non existent. Job itself is fine, collecting scrap cars, as to be expected your going to get dirty. Pay is good as you get paid after 4pm, but not worth it if your never home.

Pressured, unsafe and inconsistent - pay good but often inaccurate or unpaid entirely!

- keep track of your working hours and overtime (with photographic evidence) pay is usually inaccurate- payslips aren’t always given on requests- early starts and late finishes mean you will exceed working hours (14+ per day)- vehicle defects are frequently left unresolved as pressure from managers and lack of time discourages appropriate action- unloading is chaotic poorly managed and quite unsafe- management will tell you that you will often finish early but you won’t- local parking restrictions (17:30-22:00) mean you are likely to have your car ticketed or towed before you have finished work- as you will see; pay is a little higher than average but given the above is it really worth it?


Slightly higher pay offered


Long hours, lack of care, inaccurate pay, restricted parking and everything else!

Stay clear

The management in this company and absolutely diabolical, they care only for the money, don't care for there staff, lorrys are old and break down all the time, work load is a complete shambles, poorly run, badly managed and treat staff like dogs.STAY CLEAR




Long hours, dont take care of there staff

Friendly and supportive workplace

I previously worked for Redcorn. The staff and a management are very friendly and extremely supportive. The pay is a great rate and they assist you when needed. They go above and beyond to make sure all staff are ok and manage workload effectively


Good pay, friendly staff


Long hours

It can be a lovely place to work in, but a lot has happened over the past couple of years.I love helping people and that will never change, I'm glad I have the opportunity to do that to the best of my ability there.It can get pretty stressful trying to meet targets, but that goes without saying, we try our hardest.I love a lot of the people that work there, it's a lovely atmosphere at times.


None really

Productive and with full of learning

Good company to grow with. Management is helpful but result oriented. As long as you are doing the job you will enjoy the work environment. I would recommend to work here

Probably the best pay in London.

Perfect job for someone with recovery/mechanical knowledge and background. Long hours for probably the best pay in London. Weekly pay helps with smooth start at new work place. No pressure to work weekends but Saturdays available for those who want. You will get the oldest truck at beginning until next people come or fleet will be expanded which is fair enough. Every day is difrent, every vehicle to collect in difrent condition and is located in unknown position until you get there. Mostly every customer is helpful and cooperative but you will get to people with all disabilities or mental health issues so you must be awere of that and act carefully. You need to call every customer before collection and update them if you have any deley which mean you must be well organised and with high anticipate. You must have good attention to details and can do attitude. Based on my experience I can highly refer to anyone who want to work. Good luck.


- probably the best pay in London


- long hours on the beginning

Poorly run

I was on a week trial, with in the week trail as there mechanic, I done all That was needed of me, was told that after the week if I passed I’ll be moved in to there other site in Purfleet.I was told that I had the job, on my first day at Purfleet, I was half way through my work when I was told that I didn’t have the job, neither was a payed for the week I worked.......witch I am still waiting for a call about my money.Red corn in a massive recovery fleet and have great work if you’re willing to get your head down, but you’ll be treated like an animal and will not be shown any respect what so ever.


Plenty of work


Terrible management

Hire and fire

Hire and fire without a care in the world, will not give you any warnings they would just call you in their little office unhour before you finish and fire you. I'm not sure what the management wanted I thought I was doing well until that day came. Maybe my look wasn't right for them. I was you, I would avoid this place as there is no job security at all.


Wages for very good
