Lollipop lady for Council. The job started badly when my manager woke me at 5.30am, texting about something minor and non-urgent. Other than that the job was OK but I had to resign because of child care issues.

It is a fun place to work you get a lot of experience from the older workers who have been working for years. I would recommend to others as others are friendly and are willing to teach you new things.

Unfortunately due to school closures my time there ended. Fantastic time over the years. Until management came in and closed the school. Unfortunately after a period of time you discovered you are only a number.
Adminstration Assistant (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 19 June 2017
I found the training was not very good if you only have a temporary contract. There seemed to be no consistency in the way people did things. They all seemed to do things differently. So if you asked one person how to do things they will tell you one way and yet another person would tell you a differnet wasy.

Cleaner (Former Employee) – Marshall college – 25 February 2017
My job role in Aberdeen city council was work around house in Aberdeen area I had too clear out the abandoned home that people left behind. I learned to be professional about the public area because I sometime had to go with the line management to someone's house to help clean it and remove anything. The hardest part about the job for me was trying to clear a fridge out went the food is all bad and out of day. The best about the job was I got to work with good friends and be able to forget how bad the house was.
