Good pay and benefits
Great flexible hours, fair pay and good bonuses, Job can be boring and repetitive, pressured to hit targets, working outside in all weathers, customer facing role
Assistant Scientist in Saltford

Not worth it.
Felt like factory work. Very repetitive.Long hours on your feet. Low pay.No progression.Under staffed. High staff turnover. Senior scientist were very nice but often expected to stay late.

Glad to move on
Very poor management. New staff aren't given the chance to earn the grades of old staff despite being expected to work harder. Senior techs paid top grades hide away pretending to be busy, even when there is urgent work to be done. Rather than challenging them, management choose to rely on new techs promising to get them a pay rise if they help out. They burn through new techs like they're disposable while the Senior techs watch videos in their phones all day long.

Fast paced … poor management
Well if you are prepared to work 16hours a day for 7 days solid then Wessex waters the company for you, so customer focused they don’t care for the well-being of their field staff, the money in sewage operations is poor, you have to be a scientist, customer service representative, and be able to clear sewers, personally I would give it a miss.

Supportive environment wit a lot of progression opportunities. Great place to work everyone how is looking for challenge and who has not fear to be busy :)
