ACE (Former Employee) – North East – 21 March 2018
Lets keep this to a minimum. The company overall is ok however no matter what you do you cannot seem to please anyone in higher places.
After 2.5 years working for them (again ASDA being the issue) it seems your opinion doesn't count and not entitled to your freedom of speech. They complain you warnings, you complain then you get warnings from your own management.
My cleaning team leader was a good person as was the other ACE colleague but shame I cannot say the same about the rest.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 6 July 2018
As this is a family business there isn’t much chance of progression within the company. Wages aren’t great either but people can be lovely or at least in my department I found they where. Great holidays as you get 33 days meaning you don’t have to be off bank hols if you didn’t want too. Staff party’s also fab and free bars. Great big canteen area with cheap hot and cold foods, also newly opened coffee shop with your fancier coffee and cakes also cheap enough. Overall good place to work if the money was better for the job.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Harrogate – 25 May 2018
cleaning a supermarket first thing in a morning , which included cleaning the checkouts , toilets and shop floor.I learned how to deep clean checkouts. The hardest part of the job was making sure that the jobs i had been given were done within a certain time frame. The most enjoyable part of the job was finishing work by 10am

Poor management some bad colleagues ruin it for hard workers. Brown nosers prosper while hard workers are mistreated. Bullies also prosper complaints never taken seriously in personal experience. Stay away.

Sweeping and mopping the floor and very often using the dust pan and brush with handle within the store. I especially enjoyed litter picking the car park and emptying all the outdoor bins it personally made myself happy. As this is usually the very start of a customer journey into the store.
I clean around the checkout and sales area every morning .Then i start my janitor shift which i love. I get so engrossed with what im doing that before i know it my shift is over .All The staff are brill. And i love to interact with the customers . Love my job
Cleaning Team Leader (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 16 January 2018
Good work place, but it is only part time job. I was happy to work here because it was work place close to my home. I was very happy with morning shift. I got a lot of experience at work and this will help me with my new job.
2nd/3rd Line Network Engineer (Current Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 4 December 2017
Very staff friendly environment with plenty of benefits and rewards for all members of staff. Opportunities to progress within your role and given resources to advance your career through education allowances.
City was once a great company to work for but it has slowly gone downhill over the past 5 years, hours are cut every February but jobs are added on, consequently people need a second job to survive but are then still expected to cover shifts regardless of circumstances. The microfibre cleaning which is basically cleaning with water is not sufficient in most areas ie toilets fresh areas ! The managers and supervisors do the best they can do under bad circumstances. I would only apply for city facilities if you don't mind having a 16 hour contract but working 40 and you don't mind having no life outside work due to phone calls to come in on the rare days off you get.
I have been with this company a little over a year. I have seen multiple people leave due to the same reason (management).
Lying in this workplace is common and nothing is done about it. Times and times again the morning supervisor has been caught doing nothing and lying about what he does with no backlash from the manager or area manager when brought up.
Due to severe lack of staff,we where all driven to work harder and has been like this for a little over 6 month.
Manager has no problem shouting at you or having a go at you for failing to do everything given on your list (even if you have humanly no time which you won't).
No career path as well, not any benefits.
If you come here, expect to be treated like garbage and having to put up with garbage.
It pays, that's it.
Bad management, over worked, no career path, discrimination
