Worked at London Liverpool Street as Train Presentation for Greater Anglia (under Blue Arrow agency)

Colleagues were a laugh and easy to get on with: They’ll definitely help you NOT lose your sanity.


The difficulty of the job isn’t so strenuous.

Some of the team leaders lack of English speaking can make it difficult
Pros
Colleagues are easy to get along with, will guide you if needed.
Cons
Poor leadership from some Team Leaders

working for GA has created pride in all new projects, you feel a part of a diverse team organised to succeed.

Senior management detached/ not visible from staff on the ground.

Most of the management there have no idea what they are doing, and don't care about their maintenance staff. Been trying to offload everyone and hire contractors only for a good while now.

There is no structure to progress,meaning if you start as a ticket office clerk that's what you'll be till you retire unless you leave the company. Favouritism and discrimination are rife,you can only progress if you know someone in management. The welfare of workers is of importance, no empathy

It was mainly for mechanical engineering; however, I have learned a lot about trains manufacturing which was interesting.
My work mainly was to fill in an Excel document.

This company promised so much and sadly did not deliver. There is a sexist caveman culture at senior management level, which was tolerated by heads of department who actively engaged in this unacceptable behaviour. Avoid if you want to work for a caring employer.

Company is ok but the management is poor unfortunately.No progression or support even if you spend your whole life with them.Poor pay for the job.You have confrontations on a daily basis as you have to challenge tourists for penalty fare.

Lack of communication is a big issue.
Favouritism, not well organised and very little if any positive feedback, only negative.

No team meetings or updates.

If you're unfortunate enough to be employed in the Revenue Protection department they force you to issue penalty fares to tourists, blind, pregnant or elderly people so you can achieve your "expectations". All of which is completely illegal.
Anyone who uses common sense or empathy is either relentlessly bullied or sacked on a trumped up charge.

Management are nothing less than evil and brown nosing is rife, especially at Liverpool Street.
