Apprentice Painter and Decorator (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 4 July 2017
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.

PUPIL SUPPORT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 19 June 2017
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.

Difficult job when budgets were reduced , services closed and staff were made redundant. Multiple changes in Senior manager posts which caused much disruption and uncertainty Prior to that very enjoyable I took voluntary severance in 2010
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.
Assistant Property Officer (Former Employee) – Aberdeen city, UK – 22 February 2017
Enjoyed my time here plenty of training provided, friendly colleagues made friends for life working here. Kept busy most days and always had new tasks. Plenty of opportunity to move within departments if jobs come up internally.
Aberdeen (Current Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 20 February 2017
There was zero contract so was hard to work out my income as sometimes I would work 25 works a week & other times 5 hours.Good point was I worked in my area as I don't drive so no expenses on bus fares.
Whislt doing my apprentiship I felt I did not receive the needed experiance to go on and work for a larger comercial company within joinery. The experience was mainly in maintenance and the skill level was not great from other employees.

Apprenticeship (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 2 November 2016
Didn't feel the job was right for me as the training wasn't great. Working hours werent great. The hardest part of the job was lifting the heavy parts such as springs etc. Most enjoyable part of the job was getting the job done then being praised.
