Slow paced environment
I worked for a local temp agency, worked through a summer, restoring and refitting rooms used by the students.
Sadly the fellow workers, and i use that term "worker" very loosely, were at best actually present on site, doing anything productive is another matter, the manager of the group of men was due retirement and in all brutality really didn't care if anything was achieved throughout the day.
i was disliked from the start due to the fact i enjoy working and get a sense of satisfaction form a good days work, i was paid a lot less then the full time workers yet did most of the work needed doing.
was actively threatened by a member of the crew as he felt i was rocking the boat working hard, was later threatened outside of work after i had completed my summer of work, he complained that now the bosses want to know why i got the repairs done alone when a team cannot get.
i would absolutely love to be working back as a maintenance man again, but this time as a team leader of management so i can build a team that actually cares about the job, and students welfare.
I am happy for this review to be used as a form of educating the management of brunel and maybe getting some change initiated.
was able due to the lazy workers work alone and get the job done correctly
