Barely above minimum wage
Huge company but one of the worst salary payers in their field for non Tech roles. Always says competitive salary but can get £3k+ for similar jobs less than 10 miles away.
Cons
Rubbish salary

Ideal for pensioners
Aspire defence / Transport services one of the worst companies in the transportation sector. You will be expected to have a C and D categories and you will be driving trucks, coaches, minibuses and cars for less than £19.000 basic a year.. Fleet of vehicles poorly maintained, facilities in Aldershot are a joke no wash point no water hose to clear your windscreen in the morning, pre historical adblue top up etc..
Two faced management all they want is saving and play the good guys in front of the costumers (army)

Very toxic Work place with a lot of bullying culture and back stabbing especially from mid management. If you're an experienced driver don't bother with this company low pay bad management and toxic work culture!
Pros
None

Fun place with good progression
Can be a good laugh as long as you get the work done and respect everyone.
Good perks like free use of facilities and can progress quickly if you show willingness to learn and have a go at different things.

Three week shift pattern but get a good amount of free time but might not be best suited for someone that likes to go out partying a lot due to 6am starts,10:30 pm finishings and weekends (but on a shift pattern).
Pros
Good money, good friends, fast progression
Cons
Early and late shifts can be wearing
