Receptionist in Warrington, Cheshire
Horrible place to work and if your face does not fit then your days are numbered
The salaries are nothing to shout about either and there is no training and development only micky mouse training they do themselves
From first week there, I wanted to go but it takes time to get another job.
When I did I could not even work my notice for I was so desperate to get out
Commercial Administrator in Partington
FIX360 avoid like the plague.. abysmal place
I worked for FIX360, YHG's subsidiary group and it was agony. I worked for the commercial team and I was not trained, motivated or given a chance to do anything as the management was non existent or refused to even enter the office due to numerous holidays in florida, yeah.. your manager was always in the states sunning it up. I was inbetween work after redundancy and needed a solid job, they offered me a good wage which was less than my last but I took it based on promises made and the way they explained growth and expansion.. all a HUGE lie, no progression, companies bombing and its going downhill fast.
My team leader was abysmal, she had no personal skills, lied, abused our team and bullied me over a medical condition and all the while had no idea how to talk to staff and or subcontractors which cost me and the company income and business partners.. it was horrendous and I would beg anyone to reconsider any application to this company.
The office is a tiny repurposed school building in a dive of an area, theres no parking, computers and systems are temperamental and you cannot work from home due to the fact they refuse to allow it. They claim to be moving to a new office but with how bad their books are it wont be happening, they are hiring new staff constantly but aren't using what they hire so expect redundancy to be an issue for you if you join.
Workplace culture is non existent, your "bosses" will screw you over to look good, managers and team leaders dont help nor chase things, training doesn't happen, improvements ignored, concerns and bullying ignored.
I was given the busiest workload and struggled with it due to the absolute and harrowing lack of support from my team leader, subcontractors not replied to, emails deleted and never sent.. When you need the company to help they ignore you like when I was released and not given a reason, albeit told I was being released on a friday when they knew I had personal things to deal with, told to come in on monday.. work 2 hours past an agreed appointment then released with half pay and not even paid for the work I did over what was asked.. but add in they did this AFTER I had a week off agreed to have a medical operation done, lovely people.
Never have I EVER been subject to the misery of a place like this, when you develop psoriasis and suffer panic attacks due to work you know people should not be working here, add in the only way to get to the office is over warburton bridge so enjoy your 2 hour commutes

Scheme Manager in Chester, Cheshire
Excellent company to work for but salaries not competitive
Excellent company to work for and plenty of options for advancement or change of career - such a shame that the salaries aren’t competitive. They always start you at the bottom of the salary scale and that’s not negotiable - managers have no authority to offer a higher salary to attract best staff . However the company are excellent to work for - great training and atmosphere
