Productive and fun workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Even though it was only work experience/volunteering, I ensured that I gave my all because it was my duty to do so. It was difficult work in hot, sunny weather, but due to hard work and determination, I was able to complete what was required of me.


Long hours, early starting time

Very boring

Forestry commision was boring due to doing it with friends from school and teachers, me as an individual don't like to be doing work with friends because i am easily distracted by them if im on my own then im always on task.


Free lunch


The days dragged.
