Daily struggle
staff (Current Employee) –  Butlins5 May 2018
Days off are few and far between, pay is deplorable for specialist roles. Management are very out of touch with what's needed to complete our job and trying to get bits we need is an ongoing struggle. Each team member is expected to give up any social life they may have and live within the "bubble" and only have time to socialise with who you work with. Progression can start well and then come to a grinding halt leaving you in the same dead end job for years with the promise of moving up "next year".
Pros
Made friends
Cons
Long hours, 6/7 day weeks, awful pay, next to no real benefits, progression halts very quickly

As a whole the company are very good to work for. They strive you to deliver the best performance possible and make a large point of making each day as fun and exciting as possible whilst also maintaining the upmost professionalism.

Complex Team Member (Former Employee) –  Caister-on-Sea, Norfolk29 January 2018
Bourne leisure's extensive training program for the beginning of the season is excellent and sets you up not only for the job at hand but for any you may apply for in the future as they understand the nature of the job is seasonal and people may move on after one season.

Pros

Cons
Exhausting long hours 7 days a week

Service and Repairs
Repair and Maintenance Controller (Former Employee) –  Allhallows11 January 2018
Typical day would be accessing the job from the control TV located in the office, these jobs are logged either with Owners or from the main Reception. Could also be Holiday makers as well. Allocating the correct engineer to attend the job could be Maintenance, Electrician, Plumber of Gas engineer. They have to report on the fault this could be referred back to Manufacturer if still under warranty or we have to contact the Owner with a cost price for them to approve.

A lot of contact with the Owners by phone and also some face to face contact as well.

Following through on all jobs chasing Manufacturers and Suppliers for updates too.
Cons
No Job Satisfaction not busy enough for me.
