Helpdesk Operator (Current Employee) – Glasgow – 11 August 2017
City is a good company to work for. They offer secure employment. The pay isnt very good compared to similar offices in Glasgow. If the company paid more money they would retain staff and the service would be better to the customers.
I have been with this company a little over a year. I have seen multiple people leave due to the same reason (management).
Lying in this workplace is common and nothing is done about it. Times and times again the morning supervisor has been caught doing nothing and lying about what he does with no backlash from the manager or area manager when brought up.
Due to severe lack of staff,we where all driven to work harder and has been like this for a little over 6 month.
Manager has no problem shouting at you or having a go at you for failing to do everything given on your list (even if you have humanly no time which you won't).
No career path as well, not any benefits.
If you come here, expect to be treated like garbage and having to put up with garbage.
It pays, that's it.
Bad management, over worked, no career path, discrimination
good company benefits - company vehicle, sick pay, phone. no problems with pay each month, and if there is, its rectified straight away. manager is always available to talk to, regular meetings when necessary. sometimes the work load can be a lot but if youre struggling, you can always re-evaluate what needs to be done and change rota slightly. Hardest part of the job is the early morning starts. most enjoyable part is seeing work you have completed and the appreciation from higher managers than yourself.
N/A (Current Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 19 July 2017
I've worked for City for 10+ years. It's a very customer focused environment; especially within my department. There is very little to no progression opportunities. If you are young and have limited financial responsibilities or a partner with a well paid job - you will be happy and comfortable here.
subsidised lunches, full canteen, free bar Christmas party, dress down Friday and Weekends
inconsistent management, lack of passion for their people, no progression opportunities
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 13 June 2017
Worked as a cleaner in a store since January and handed in my notice today. Horrible management who treat employees like you are nothing to be honest (in this store at least). You are expected to cover any shift they want you too and revoke your holidays if they need any of you when they decide. This past month 3 cleaners have left/ are leaving and also a team leader. The salary is not worth the job you are doing at all. Simply speaking you are nothing worth as a cleaner for them.
compared to other cleaning companies ive worked for i wouldnt say this was 1 of the best.for example i was always over looked for higher positions becuase of favouritism even the tho i was more qualified than most,i enjoyed the job when i was left to get on with it.
Store Cleaning Manager (Current Employee) – West Midlands – 14 May 2017
It is a good company but not forever. You can learn a lot, but progression levels off due to the bottleneck nature of the company. It was enjoyable, but a change of direction was required for me personally.
Working in retail sector as an RME Retail Maintenance Electrician. Fault Finding, remedy or find solution thinking outside the box. Delegating with sub contractors making sure H/S is carried out being compliant. Making sure all works are carried out according to Electrical / H/S regulations . Good Customer service
Cleaning Team Leader (Current Employee) – Ramsgate, Kent – 12 March 2017
CFM is a friendly company to work for, i have learned a lot at CFM, the working environment is a challenge but a satisfying one and I have personally found that the management teams are often very quick to help, insightful with questions and problems.
