Shannon rail

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working for Carl Shillito at Shannon rail is very interesting. No one site is the same there is always a cabin or vehicle to do the sac. In you can always get a cup of coffee or tea.


Work is some times locally


You go where the work is £12 per hour

knowlege, lot of travelling, no real security, earning and progreess can be good

pro's and con's with this company, overall if the work is available and you are willing to work long hours you can make good money, however it is on a zero hour contract basis so no security as such. The actual job role I was doing was as a SAC, depending on the work site you was located, it could vary from how busy it was each day could be different. So prepare to travel around and be a quick learner as you have to know site specific things and going on's even thou youe not familiair with thr set up / managers
