Production Operative (Former Employee) – Wells, Somerset – 7 September 2018
Just don't do it. Horrible place to work.. everyone is expected to stay over basically every day even though in the interview they tell you 8 hours 45 minutes and you go home. Once did i go home on time. Everyone is treated badly and management have no idea what their doing. The language barrier is so bad that most people can't actually communicate. Never have i worked in such a poorly run company. I would advise everyone to avoid this place unless you absoloutely have to.
Expected to work over every day, poor communication, bad management
Area Manager/ Flow Leader (Former Employee) – Mc Nicol Drive London – 16 August 2019
This is about the best Company to work for. There is a great opportunity for one to Learn, Grow, and Develop a career. I joined the company from a teaching background as an Operative. I thought I will just be there for a few months and go back to Teaching. Behold, I got stuck in a nice way. Nice and helpful Team mates, enough training and best practices. I stayed for 10 solid years moving up the scale from Base Operative, Assistant Team Leader, Team Leader, Assistant Manager and Team Manager Positions. A lot was learnt. Since Leaving Charlie Bighams less than 2 years ago, I have had 2 other jobs and none of them compares with Bighams. And the good thing is that once you tell prospective employers you worked in Charlie Bighams, they pay more attention to you. The name "Charlie Bighams" is more of opportunities door opener. I would not know how staff are being treated in their new Factory in Wells, but we were well looked after in London. My wife still remembers the yearly family Summer Parties. I will definitely recommend that place as a place fit for working and will gladly go back there at certain stage of my career if what matches my ambition comes up.
