Absolutely Terrible Company
Totally Two Faced People And System!The system is designed to cripple and the workers and contractors!Do not expect to work here for life as eventually you will be shifted into a position you do not want or be made redundant!Do not work for Tarmac you have been warned!

Has changed for the worse over time unfortunately.
Before Tarmac took over, there were multiple opportunities for job advances and paid courses. You really felt like the company wanted to invest in you and the company's future. Now they hire contractors for a cheaper price and loose out on skilled staff all to save a quick buck. This in time has completely demoralised the trained staff and devalued their staffs worth. Pay used to be fantastic in comparison to other companies in the trade, but now they're not. There's no work life balance and it's encouraged to work late in order to get the most out of their staff.

Decent company but long hours
Company is good to work for but they don’t try and get improve on you. You will likely be stuck in the same job for life when joining. No extra training or progression.
