No training, it can take a long time to get repairs done on the waggons.

I enjoy the work, but the pay is not what I would expect, and training is not what you should expect, as it doesn't exist.Absolutely no recognition of things like Christmas and new year, not even a Xmas card far less pay rates for bank holidays. Reporting falts and you are wondering if anyone is actually reading it it toke over 4 months in the winter time get a heater fixed and plenty of other faults that are still haven't been fixed.


Discount on car services


Pay could be better and training needs to be better

Good money, no two days are the same.

Everything day is different, you could be picking up cars from the roadside, or attending rta’s to pick up vehicles that are 15 foot down a ditch etc you could get sent anyway in the south west. great job if you like to put the hours. Mostly enjoyable too!


Great pay, Good work with no limit to overtime


Can sometimes be unsociable hours

Good place to work

Very well looked after as a staff member but not the place to work if you expect to be spoon fed or looking for an easy ride.Lots of new vehicles bought in time I was there. Lots of hours available.


Pay on time, plenty of hours available


If you don’t ask you don’t get so if you go to work there be proactive

No work life balance, no backup when needed, no ppe supplied everything seems a problem to managers,

Do not join this shower Left and right hand have no idea what the other is doing and one expects the other to have done it. No backup on the road if needed, no backup with ppe or equipment eg gloves, engine oil, parts etc. This company expect you to work all the ours you can then expect you to carry on when you shouldn't, I often done 20+ hours

Horrible place to work . They force you to work over 13 hours a day then oncall . Money is poor and they'll take on anyone . Make there own rules up .


They pay on time

I least enjoyed working for this Company as there were shifts involved. My children were all under the age of 10, and ended up spending less time with them at the time, As the job went on, the hours were increased more and more.
