Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall Taylor Wimpey are a good company to work for if you are in the right department. They have some really good people who are friendly and helpful . One thing that is not fair is the pay difference between colleagues that are doing the same job as you. The manager shows favoritism to certain staff, and seems that the less you do and the more you suck up to them the more you will be thought of.

Pros

Good benifets

Cons

Unfair pay structure

Would not recommend, they don't value people...

Would not recommend, they don't value people... Will use and dump after they don't need you any more. Managers will lie in your face and act as if nothing is going on and one day you will be out of job with no warning.

Pros

None

Cons

Absurd management.

Cons

Lies lies lies

Dont work for these ever!!

Rubbish company total let downs. Most managers are useless. Unorganised chaos and take whatever they can get from you. They will happily let the labourers do nothing all day then expect the forklift drivers do both jobs.

Pros

None

Cons

Clicky is an understatement

An ex army as manager and a weasel as an assistant manager, back stabbing, rude, no man management skills whatsoever, health and safety out the window and when an accident does happen they cover it up. Awful working conditions, as long as management are nice and cozy and safe , sod anyone else. Awful ......

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, rude management

A job i suppose

Currently an apprentice bricklayer for taylor wimpey and initially we were promised the world by management, ie guaranteed job at end of apprenticeship, no labouring or being taken advantage of by tradesman, etc. Basically a pack of lies, as we now pretty much have no job at the end of the course, so granted, while we'll have a qualification by the end of the course, we won't have enough experience to earn a living out of it! There's some days where we literally labour all day or do any other mundane task that the self employed bricklayers can't be 'bothered' to do and a tutor who sometimes teaches us depending on what side of bed he woke up on! Management brush any issue we have under the carpet and are more obsessed with if we are having 34 seconds longer for break than we are entitled too! Yet all the while expecting us to give 1000% commitment to the job while not being able to guarantee us anything in return!

Pros

Better than dole!

Cons

Lots of hanging around, cheap labour, management who think they it all

Stressful job

I've been employed by an agency for 2 years even though I was ment to be taken on after 3 months they've just fobbed me off so I've had no holiday pay or overtime in 2 years.

Having good comunication with all trades & management to no how the job is moving from day to day.

Stress maximum

For Taylor Wimpey Directors , all workers it is just numbers and that numbers can do every day more , and more and more but don't ask about raise salaries because never they don't have money for salaries ! So employers humans need to be just robots doesn't matter families or private life ! All for Taylor Wimpey!😡

Pros

Uniforms

Cons

Not ready yet ?😡

Heavy workload but great company.

Loads of work due to rapid expansion, which h was hard to delegate. However my line manager was great, salaries are far and the perks (such as bonuses and discounts) are amazing. Ethical for a house builder too. I enjoyed working there and would recommend, but set your boundaries early.
