Absolutely Shocking

The company has zero respect for employees,which is proven by the constant advertising for workers.Health & safety is non existent.The rate of pay is shocking,and along with the way they treat you,is the main reason so many leave after a couple of weeks.£9:30 for flt drivers£11 for loading shovel drivers (was £10.50)Managers & team leaders really need training in how to treat people,as they lack even the minimal skills in this.With better skills in these areas,it could be a good place to work.

Pros

Paid on time

Cons

Poor management.Rate of pay is very poor for the work you do.Health & safety is very poor

Possibly the worst place to work.

Untrained managers who are power headed but have NO PEOPLE SKILLS Dangerous no health and Safety people have lost lives in this job and they don’t care they will get the next person to finish the dangerous job.Never payed correctly always lied to they manipulate young people.You do not look after ur staff you have no company values. With no people who you are loosing fast you are nothing. Do not work here if you have sense

Pros

Staff are friendly

Cons

What a mess this place is

Lunatic asylum.

You don't get paid on time and when you do its usually incorrect, the work is back breaking, the place is extremely dusty and the health and safety is horrendous. Literally 90% of the operatives are actively seeking a new job. The managers all seem OK, the lads are fantastic.

Pros

It doesn't snow.

Cons

Quite a few
Was this review helpful?

A lot of good people as well as a lot of poor management.

Great group of people to be around but management seem to have no idea what to do and put no time into the progression of employees. Good stepping stone but not somewhere to try and make a career.

Pros

Good People

Cons

Poor leadership

I don't want to writ anything bad as the job wasn't really for me but could be for someone else we all have different taste in jobs only thing will say the long hours in the spring summer time really long hours can go up to 12hrs a day Monday to Friday and don't get paid overtime get all back as extra holidays me personally would like to get paid overtime then extra holidays which have to be taken in the quiet season that was only down side to the job. will say this the line manager and the production team will always willing to help you when you needed it no matter what they were doing
