Interesting and enjoyable work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was employed as a parks constable and was sworn in the office of constable by a magistrate, the training was in house and was very intense and had exams to pass at the end of training. The work colleagues were great and helped each other all the time when needed but when you work for a council there are politics involved with the running of the service and that comes at a cost when central government make cuts so I was made redundant in 2012 due to cuts. I loved my job at Wandsworth I enjoyed going to work everyday and would still be there if the cuts did not happen.

Pros

Good pay, leave and conditions

Cons

Politics

Productinve and challenging environment

Work starts 8:00 and ends 18:00 with break from 12:00 to 14:00. Learned to manage clients and suppliers; first hand experience of purchasing and stock control. Co-workers responsive and willing. Embedding best practices and new approaches to work were the hardest part of job. The most enjoyable part of job was planning and evaluating operations.

Pros

Experience gained in commercial environment

Cons

Worked half days on Saturdays

Pros

Staff benefits and discounts. 31 days annual leave.

Cons

No job progression.

very fun and relaxed work place.

The day at the office would always start of with a cup of coffee, I enjoy catching up with colleagues and finding out how their night/weekend went. Throughout the day my manger would assign me tasks to complete with various customers e.g. swap out broken monitor, and then it would be up to me to arrange times with the customer to complete the task, baring in mind my other calls and arrangements i have made with other customers. My co-workers were very supportive and would always help me out with problems I had, as finding a call i couldn't complete was the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable part was participating in Lunchtime football my colleagues arranged, this help bonding and friendship.

Wandsworth Borough is a sought after borough because of its low council tax, and excellent values. It is a good company to work for

I started at 0700, got the bus ready making sure there is fuel water and the bus is clean. Then with an escort, at 0800 we picked up our designated children, which usually consisted of about 8-14 children.We dropped them off at school. Some days I transport them to swimming or other sports.Then by 1500 we pick them up and transport them home. After which I take the bus back to the depot, clean it and then head home.

Pros

a lot of time off in the day between dropping the children off and picking them up

Cons

wages was low for full time employment
