Mobile Warden in South Wales

Can be stressful work but can be rewarding if you're motivated
It's a good job if you can take the occasional abuse from car park users who are feeling bad about breaking the rules of the car park. Some days people were nice about it and other days they would shout, swear, and sometimes worse than this.Rotas are usually given the week before, but you should check them carefully because sometimes overtime is added even if you have said you're not available. When colleagues are off on holiday or sick, it's usual for there to be a lot of overtime. I worked 6 day weeks, 10 hours a day most days towards the end of my time there.Pay is fair and there are opportunities to earn more if you're a hard worker.Make sure to book holiday in advance because it can be difficult to get at short notice. However, if you do have a family emergency, management will work with you to make sure you can take the time you need.Getting hold of management can be mixed. Although they send out management rotas it can sometimes be hard to get through to any of the managers if they're busy. On one day at the start of my shift I tried every manager who should have been working according to the rota and couldn't get hold of anyone. One of the managers eventually called me back at the end of my shift. When you do get hold of managers they are helpful.They provide all the uniform and equipment that you need for the job, except footwear, and it is easy to ask for more when you need it, although it can sometimes take a while to arrive.This is an outdoors job, working in all weathers, and you have to use your own car. You need to be okay working outdoors even in bad weather, and walking a lot, but these are reasons that I liked the job.

Alright
Good place if you can handle abuse. Pay is okay. Rotas are usually given the week before, but you should check them carefully because sometimes overtime is added even if you have said you're not available. When colleagues are off on holiday or sick, it's usual for there to be a lot of overtime. I worked 6 day weeks, 10 hours a day most days towards the end of my time there.

Couldn’t fault them
The staff were absolutely amazing and there was always someone on the other side of the phone if you needed help/assistance on how to deal with an unwanted task or unwanted harassment. This job does require thick skin and an understanding to the general public, as you can receive abuse regularly.

Worst company
They offer you all this stuff in the interview like sike pay etc but you never see any of it. Stay away from this company there all cons. This is by far the worst company i have worked for.you are tracked on a gps on you day to day which wouldn't be that bad if it worked properly

Stressful and demanding work place
Pressure job demanding job. Office staff constantly on your back trying to make sure you get tickets and they don't care how you get them, who the victims are and what they circumstances are example health or wealth situation and I been encouraged to issue to big fancy cars straight away. Very poor customer service as takes them months to get back to you. Only bother with you if you ain't issued a ticket or more. Worked here for 3 years cos suited my flexibility for school run etc. I'm glad I left job and the abuse I received from so called customers and then abuse from office staff cos couldn't get a ticket is unbelievable and the pressure of this job is very stressful both from office staff and especially the victims /(customers).
