Office Administrator in Stockport, Greater Manchester
on 11 April 2022
A good job made bad
The company and what it stands for cannot be faulted. Unfortunately as with most jobs, the management don’t take on board ideas or listen to staff who deal with the day to day running of the shifts. The first few months were amazing, i was happy and proud to work for the company. Then new management came in and this was a main reason for me wanting to go. The management do not allow us to complete our job to our full potential, making us ask permission to change shifts. You would think they would want happy crew, it seems they are intent on making everyone miserable. There is no room for error. You have a day off sick and get a month overtime ban as punishment, this does not apply to all bases due to staffing levels otherwise the contracts would never be covered. The environment is very toxic. The job is stressful and you spend 12hrs at a desk. The one good thing that has come of this and the one thing that’s kept me going are the crew and my team.

Management are awful
I worked out of Bicester base and thoroughly enjoyed the training (all be it the instructor that joined us on week 3 onwards was up his own back side) . If you want a job where you get paid awful, not the right amount and not get back your expenses then join. Also if you need any help from the manager, don’t bother, they only get back to you once you email with a word that scares them like “stress” or “feeling neglected” . Once the management do get back to you, they phone you and speak to you like you’re thick. Absolute shambles of a company. It’s a shame because I’ve always wanted to “give back” and apply my caring skills in peoples times or crisis.

Not a good place to work at
Generally this could be a very good job, however, there is problems with pay, the management is very argumentative and treats employees like children. Work colleagues is very cliquey and there is a massive employee/volunteer divide. Some colleagues are extremly shouty and bossy. Quite a bit of backstabbing going on.

Management lie and dont listen
Management dont listen to what has been told to them. Very clicky between management and crew members. Atmosphere in rest room when management is around is like your walking on egg shells.

Colleagues, although most have gone to NWAS now.
Management are terrible, they change the rules to suit and expect crews to attend category 1 and 2 calls with very little training. If you disagree with anything, they will get you out. They recently lost at least 10 EACs due to terrible management
