water quality inspector in Wessex
on 12 May 2020
The Potential Is There, But Missed By Along Way
On the face of it with the description of the job it would seem like a fantastically interesting job to have, and the first weeks would follow that while your training, however that's where it ends. Water quality inspector is basically driving around constantly tracked to a number of sites and collecting water under the constant scrutiny of the lab scientists, always looking to blame the WQi's for any mistakes even if those mistakes are by the laboratory, your looked at as the bottom feeders of the section of compliance even though your the ones out in all weathers collecting these samples, when your on call it is 24 hours and just an excuse for the scientists to pile unessential work onto you for kicks while thinking their some kind of god's in this industry, and cold calling customers to get random samples every day is just plain awkward. The saving grace are the other workers at your level if you get a good team and a good bunch that make it a good job in that sense, but for just over 20 grand a year works out at 9.75 a hour gross for what is deemed as a key worker in a food industry role boy is it not worth it, added to that the 6 am start 5 days over 7 including bank holidays doesn't make it any better which is a real shame as potentially it could be a fantastic job but it's just worked so wrong, but you do get your van and there is overtime that's well paid,your out in the fresh air and the countryside so there are pluses, but when a customer service adviser role and a meter reader role is payed more per year than you, that's when it hits home the hardest, your not paid quite enough for what the job is.

Do not work for wessex water
Without a doubt the worst company I have ever worked for.They treat you like dirt,managment are always right even when always wrong and have utter contempt for their employees..I cannot urge you enough.. Avoid at all cost.

Not bad place to work But management are terrible.
Job not too bad itself, management can make job a lot harder, there is a lot of managers trying to make names for themselves. You start off as an operator and get made to do other peoples jobs alongside your role for no extra money. Many double standards with management. HR are not very good, don't keep stuff confidential and don't deal with problems.

First class
I’ve been working for Wessex for seven years now. Joined initially as a trainee quantity survey, then became an assistant and now quantity surveyor. The projects are varied and lots of exciting opportunities to really make my mark on the future initiatives. Great team, great manager.
Assistant Scientist in Saltford
on 21 July 2020
Innovative and professional
I support the team in testing drinking and waste water and we operate 7 days per week. I work with such a great team here, we all work together to make sure we get the job done. The company have supported me in achieving my professional qualifications and I'm excited about my future career with the company. It's mainly Monday to Friday but when needed we work the odd weekend.
