Great for summer work between uni

UKME was a great place to work during university summers. It was only seasonal work (from around June/July - Sept/Oct) and it was shift work but the hourly rate is really good and they often offer overtime.

Very straight forward company includes great benefits

Good company to work for Includes so many benefits only issues are Staff can be a little unprofessional at times which isn’t handled by management as it should be this spoils it .Seems quite clique within staff and can at times be competitive. Otherwise it would be a lovely job.Management could be more on point and organised.

Pros

Great pay lovely environment good hours

Cons

Unprofessional at times

This work environment put me into depression

While they do reward quite well, it's only to keep you while you feel miserable every single day. I was happier than ever before when I left. High stress and pressure with little appreciation and the only time my value was expressed was when I handed in my resignation, then I was the best thing since sliced bread! Would never go anywhere near this place again.

Pros

Some financial perks here and there

Cons

Long hours, hardly any breaks, hostility, lack of value as an employee, no real mobility.

Loved working in the office

The work place has a relaxed atmosphere but at the same time can be busy at work. Good management, workplace culture is satisfying, loved every minute of the job. I didn't find my job stressful nor competitive, and I was satisfied with my interaction with the management and the colleagues.

Very competitive work

This is very demanding job during the high season but very well paid as a reward of your extra effort and commitment. Will drive principal to any desired locations or typical locations. An high standard of professionalism is required constantly. I had to travel abroad with the prinicipal and be on service for the whole week if not a month. knowledge and planning of journeys are and can be sometimes recognised and rewarded

Pros

Recognition of your professionalism

Cons

Long hours and demanding

Hard Work, but Educational

This job was very exhausting. I was very tired throughout my time working there, feeling as if I was only coming home to sleep, and spending the weekend recovering from aching. My co-workers were nice, and easy to get along with. they showed me how to do my job, using the equipment, and I learnt a lot from that. Some of the labour was enjoyable, such as mowing the grass and using the leaf blowers. The management felt very strict. I personally wouldn't chose to work there again, as I couldn't handle the manual labour. However, if someone is looking for manual labour work, this is a good job.

Professional

Every operative is fitness assessed before being offered work. Then minimum 2 weeks of training with Martial arts and fitness instructor. This is before the client arrives. Hardest part of the job is working 7 days a week until contract ends. Most enjoyable is working hours.

Free Lunches

Cons

Always on call

Shocking.

From day one the job was a shambles. Very over staffed. Was stood around looking for work as most of the time didn't know who was doing what and no manager telling me what to do. A lack of organising skills, no communication between managers to staff and overall atmosphere of people wanting to leave the job. The uniform I was issued was in such a bad state that I felt ashamed to wear it! Three days In a row I was made to turn over and edge the same flower beds for no point other than to me made to "look busy" The staff canteen rooms were I was suppose to eat were disgusting, no seating for all staff and the facilities were dirty. I think the office staff that done my application were a lovely bunch and very helpful overall. Personally I would never recommend anyone to work in the garden side of the company!

Pros

Okay hours, plenty of overtime available

Cons

Poor management, only seasonal work, very worn old uniforms
