Front of House Staff in lothian road, edinburgh
The job is fine, i work front of house however there has never been any promotions from the staff on front of house in my 6 years. The supervisors have stayed the same or they have hired from elsewhere. I would never know if there is chance for job progression. Good student job though and great managers.

HR Consultant in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
Pedantic work environment
Time seemed to stand still. What should take a day to progress could take a week or more. No sense of urgency. Cliquish work culture. Department over staffed.
Estates and Concierge Officer in Edinburgh
Had 2 jobs within the council and both jobs were not as described in interviews. Want more from you than required, vary rarely help you with anything work related. Pointless asking anyone for help or advice from management as they have zero experience and knowledge of what to do. Training is a joke.
Driver in Everywhere in the city
Temping at the council
It is a popular employer and there is competition to get jobs and to keep your job because the City of Edinburgh Council is such a well renowned employer. For permanent employees there are many add-on benefits but as a temp, you receive s minimal salary and you can expect to be blamed for everything and there is a good chance you will allow a culture of bullying around yoirself. It is not institutionalised, just human nature.
