Don't bother

Management talks to you like #@#@ expect you to work constantly such as you will just about to finish a 14 day job and they will message and say we have got you a train ticket to go straight to wherever with no break and they don't ask they try to tell you and if you say you want a weekend off to see your family etc they don't like it and won't give you any further work for 2....3 weeks if your lucky. You are better working 5 days not 7 it works out about 40...50 quid better wages if you work 7 so not worth it. But believe me this company wants blood lol

Don't bother

Do you enjoy walking an hour to and from a pick up location? Spending another hour in a cramped car to job, working 10 hrs (and only being paid for that work) wasting 3-4 hours unpaid each day.

Pros

None

Cons

3 hrs unpaid followed by work then unpaid travel and pickup, Bullied management, 0 hr contract with no guaranteed work week in week out.

no respect

treated like a robot not a human. the office has no respect for its employees sends jobs at the other end of the country with no regards to travelling time. team leaders are disrespectful too . some jobs can be stressful others boring & a waste of time.drivers get no extra pay for ferrying others around, travel time is unpaid.

Pros

work in different locations

Cons

long shifts, alot of travelling

Good for what you get

Don't always get regular jobs. You take work when they offer you it. Will get you working weeks without a day off. Pay is not bad. Also paid for fuel.

Pros

Not bad pay

Cons

Long distance

Long days low pay

Work is given to you at the last minute, all work is miles away from home.Travel time can add hours into your day .Paid through an umbrella company so your hourly rate is about £8.10 12 hour shifts also night shifts paid under the same rate as a day shift .

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry to hear that your payment expectations were not met. This is certainly an uncommon experience, and due to our payroll being managed by an external team, this is likely a problem which has occurred within their processes. Please feel free reach out to info@theshorgroup.co.uk to discuss this issue further. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by this and we hope any issues can be resolved in order to work together in the future.Thank you, The Shore Group

Can be fun its face paced at times

They try look after as much as they can it's frustrating when they place you far from the hotel your staying at to the site you have been placed or the site is to far too walk from station. It's good that they pay for your travel and place of stay.

I used to leave my house at 3pm to be at the workplace for 7pm. Worked all night re-arranging and sorting mechandise for the company. Finished shift at 8am and had a 2 1/2 hour journey home. Spent roughly 15 hours a day travelling and working, which was having a detrimental effect on my my pet's and my health.

Terrible attitude and they don’t care about the employees

Terrible company to work for. The attitude from the office staff on the phone is disgusting they don’t care about personal circumstances or safety of their workers. The office are very unhelpful and give you abuse when you make a mistake or just because they are having a bad day. I would never recommend anyone to work for this company unless you want to end up in debt due to them not paying correctly.

Awful company

Awful company to work for, the team leaders are lazy, they say they have a lot of work on but you receive one day a week sometimes none, full of empty promises! And the team leaders have no respect for staff and think they’re better than everyone else, be little you in front of staff to show their authority and the office do very little about this and if you say something they again offer you no work! Awful experience working for this company!
