Great workplace
Great place to work and learn. Friendly colleagues and supportive management. Flexible working available- core hours 10-4. But high turnover in staff due to the stagnation of pay and the only way to earn more is to move up even if you love your job!

Good place to work if you’re in the right role
Find the right role and you’ll have a career path which is very progressive. Providing you’re willing to put in the work you’ll definitely reap the rewards. Staff tend to be very easy going and laid back in my experience. However some older members can be quite rude and feel as if they’re entitled to things for no reason…A lot of people are in roles they have no capability for and can’t carry out their expected duties. Thus leaves opportunity to pick these up and gain experience from it. The frustrating thing then becomes, the fact these people will stay in their roles and won’t be moved unless they ask

Excellent place to work, no stress relaxed atmosphere. Visiting different sites daily meeting returning customers along with new customers
Awesome place to work, never any stress. Good work place life balance. Always finish at 15:30 sometimes an hour later but vary rarely. Monday - Friday. Opened up my eyes when I joined from doing potentially 12 hour days with weekends to 5 days a week 7 hr days. Absolute blessing working here
