its okay, managers need a kick up the backside though
Mail Operative (Current Employee) – Telford – 5 February 2018
Go into work and all the managers do is sit around on their phones or stood and picking their nose.. Its an okay place to work, you get a great bond with all the other workers. There's a lot of bitchiness around and rumours. The money is not bad for what you do either but in a overall of the job I wouldn't go for it, usless managers who don't care!
Work / drawings issued and left to organise survey visits myself. Kept manager up to date on surveys completed and next survey. Which meant I got on with the work and had a visit to site by the manager on the odd occasion. Keeping everyone informed is key.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Winsford, Cheshire – 16 December 2017
I work at Engie based in winsford, Engie themselves seem a good company to work and they do make sure you are safe. The team running the contract are basically a working circus, if you are easily frustrated by daily office blunders then this job probably isn't for you, if you are smart and don't want to do much then this is your ideal job as office staff have no idea what you do as part of your day to day job. This is not there fault, they receive little training but most are nice enough personally. There is no stress of overwork, the stress on this contract is just office incompetence but if you can rise above this then this is actually quite a good job. There is a little bit of upper management ego that sometimes drifts down but if you smile and sign on the dotted line every now and then they drift back up into the land of unicorns. (Don't be put off by this as they are not a problem) Office staff seem to "frightened" of upper management but most of this fear isn't upper managements fault, I think its because they are worried about being found out how terrible they are running the contract. ( again not office staffs fault, lack of resources and help from Engie themselves is doing this) Pension is utter rubbish so if youre after this don't apply. The contract I work on has good funding for some things and little for other things compared to other Engie contracts I hear about that isn't bad. This is just a job and not a career, a career can only be carved out in winsford if you are willing to work take a lead role in the office and join the circus. Lack of structure andmore... organisation is what is letting things down and probably not people themselves. The people are nice enough and so are the people and places where I work. Its just really average, depends what you want I suppose. I'd say if you are 50 plus then this is probably a nice little job if your not interested in a career.less
You get paid and sometimes for not doing a great deal
engineer (Current Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 11 December 2017
week management, continual moving of goal post, poor leadership and guidance.
Far too easy to blame the current low commodity price for everything and yet waste thousands of pounds on pointless travel all over europe, examples being having to fly to Den-Helder for a 2 hour meeting that could have easily been conducted via video link at a fraction on the cost.
good place to work staff where not happy lot of tension head chef and manager was a bully but they soon sorted the problem out by replacing him with a completely different manager who was a much better understanding person somebody you could talk to
Planning Engineer (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 23 October 2017
Lots of travel. Boss is good to work for tries to help whenever he can. Spend a lot of time picking up projects from other parts of the business / sorting any issues bringing the project from concept to reality.
Audio typist role where I had to listen to recorded data between 2 or more parties to create a transcript. I was required to type a minimum of 52 recorded minutes per day.
It was a limited talking environment as you worked with headphones on so talking meant you weren't necessarily working. This is what I found most difficult about the job, as I enjoy forming relationships with my colleagues.
Management would mark our work from time to time to make sure there were limited mistakes and then give us feedback on our work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to listen to some of the recorded tapes and listening to the incidents.
Working hours, good location, generous pay
Little room for improvement, very little diversity, quiet atmosphere
Cleaner (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 September 2017
I learn how to work as a team or entertaining and made show I had good time keeping and made show I done it to the best of my ability, my daily task were doubled to a lack of staff. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the team as we all work hard together to get the job done.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – london aquatics centre – 4 September 2017
This company is a good company to work for but it's only if you can get the hours they train you well and do help with things if you want to learn more. It is hard work but if your not shy of work then this is good for you.
shift work, 0 hour contract after 2 years still no contract
not a good company to work for, stay away. there are no benefits and they do not care The staff that suffer the most are the front of house staff in all the buildings. Management do not want to hear your feedback and just want you to look pretty smile and let the client talk down to you but you must not complain.
Mail operator (Current Employee) – Telford – 8 August 2017
Some people enjoy the store but I hated every aspect from managers to customers and the majority of the team Other than that there is not a lot more I can say if you in joy and slow based life style you will fit in well with the morning staff but if you like a life style where managers moan and nit pick you every move and decision then the evening shift is for you
