Its a productive workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They claim to be Knowledgeable about what they want to achieve. However the fitters who put everything together onsite really aren't as good as they think they are, massive gaps in joints, expecting the next trade to make everything look good for them. Bricklayers were absolutely hopeless all i got from one customer was negative comments about work that had been done, which then reflected on what i was trying to do, not a great atmosphere. There's making good then there's making good.

Pros

Paid for Travelling

Cons

Too much preparation involved before you can start you're own job

Not for everyone

Worked for Vale as a fitter for 8 months, all started well but was soon to find out how shocking the company was to work for!Stone Age management style, health and safety policy on site is shocking!! Working off hop ups and step ladders on uneven ground! Made to walk on roofs in the winter covered in ice and snow! Items constantly missing from deliveries and to be told we have them!The time allocated to the jobs is not enough to put a quality finish to the job and everything is done at 100mph and rushed!Not my cup of tea so I’ve left to enjoy pastures much greener.

Old School

If you are looking for a long term rewarding job where your efforts and commitment are valued this is not the place! If your lucky enough that your 'face fits' you may be okay, if you have an opinion and would like to progress then dont bother. Very Very old ways of working, sad environment and generally demotivating.

Pros

Mon-Fri working

Cons

Long Hours

Very Traditional

A very traditional, family owned business that hasn't really progressed with the times. If you are lucky enough to fit in you can have a good career but if not you won't last long. This could be a great place to work and they are fair the majority of the time.

Productive and Fun Workplace

The colleagues were collaborative and energised to produce a high quality of work. But they were also very friendly and welcoming, and there was very little tension in the workplace overall. A good place to work.
