Mostly challenging customers. Some of the staff and managers are helpful and supportive although some not all are not at all. Communication is not great

Good workplace
Good place to work, good enough guys to work with. Council isn’t getting any better with managers and supervisors taking everything you say in one ear and out the other as they’re not interested.

Good employer
I worked as a catering assistant in primary school for 19 years. West Lothian Council is a fair employer who pay above national minimum wage. I was dedicated, hard working, honest and reliable and rarely had time off sick. I left because the Scottish government introduced free school meals which in turn increased my hours so it was no longer suitable

Let down by management and development opportunities
Decent enough bunch of guys to work with but let down by the attitude of managers and supervisors. Hardly any scope for development, if your face doesn’t fit you’ll get nowhere.

Can you drive.

As I did seasonal work in both the cleansing dept doing bulky uplifts and bins as well as grounds maintenance, gardening, graffiti removal etc and had been there a few years before I got full time in 2002 the questions were self explanatory as I had experience in all aspects of the jobs at hand
