I worked in the yard for Actavo in a place near bournemouth airport,noisy filthy enviroment.
rain or shine having to load and unload scaffolding and heavy oblects alot of the time by hand.
If your not fit,this aint the job for you,would suit ex forces or scaffolder,but if you are a scaffy then you would rather get scaffy wages.
For the money,you recieve some days tons of steel tube that has been hired returned by customers(teams of scaffolders),which then gets checked by you in the yard and put away by hand one by one,so a couple of lorrys with four blokes give you a load of this stuff with fittings,you then have to count it all,sometimes measure it all(incase its been cut down in size) and then put it away,so really you are physically doing four scaffolders job just putting it away by hand,theres no thanks and you goto do it all for a tenner an hour,pritty bad,i did not enjoy!,customers are rude, managment are rude,theres no propa product training,staff are rude
weekly wage to use to drown your sorrows
it is a con, hard, hard work in the summer, sometimes no breaks!
