Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Tain, Highland – 11 October 2018
a typical day working here started relatively slow but picked very quickly and lasted most of a shift. management had a very good handle of everything going on and a well formed relationship with the staff. the workplace was small but at the same time was perfect for that was required of the team. the hardest part of the job was the lunch rush, with trying to ensure that the local high school students didn't spend any more than five minutes waiting for their food. the most enjoyable part of the job for me was getting to meet the people of the community that would come in fairly regularly and being able to talk to some of them like i had known them for years.

Security Officer (Former Employee) – Sherburn in Elmet, North Yorkshire – 28 September 2018
Avoid Compass like the plague. Shocking company that breach TUPE regulations and chase you through the court's for 3 days over payment. Extremely poor management structure who simply don't give a monkey's. Work for these at your peril. Especially 14forty they're an absolute shambles. Champagne performance for lemonade wages

Former Employee Plymouth . Terrible management look after their own , they do stick together . You are very often overworked covering staff shortfall . Management and some supervisors need training on people skills . A few years of hard work and no appreciation . Teamwork a joke only if line manager approves of it . Other employees i worked with were lovely , only reason went in everyday .
Staff and management are friendly. You have the opportunity to work your way up the job ladder. Working days are flexible, no minimum required hours. You get to choose how often you would like to work. But there are strict rules and regulations on uniform and your ID
Don't work for these it's a mickey mouse company run by clowns they don't care about staff I worked in security its a joke lots of incidents for poor money and no feedback just expect to take being assaulted
nice being part of a productive team member. hardest part of the job is pushing big waste bins once full and taking to end of the car park, enjoyable part of the day is getting praise and recognition for your hard work

Cleaner (Former Employee) – Plymouth – 22 August 2018
People I work with are great people!
Supervisors are great and supportive
Mamgment are a waste of space and need to be turfed out! They expect you to do the same amount of work even when sort staff when you only get paid minimum wage! The pressure the managers put on the cleaners is too much for what you get paid done couple years service with this company and the job was perfect just the way you are treated was my final straw!
(Mangers need to be sent on people skills course or either sacked)
Bar Staff (Former Employee) – Epsom – 17 August 2018
You get to pick where and when you work, which allows you to work as little or as much as you like depending on your schedule. Great for students or busy people that need to fit their job around other things.
Barista (Former Employee) – Derby – 16 August 2018
My workplace was in a hospital, so everything was constantly frantic. I received little-to-no training from the management so it was very stressful straight away. The hours were also very long with little break, which meant that you could get no rest from a very demanding job. After I left they did not pay me after I contacted them. It's a year later and they still haven't paid me.
Wage is quite good
Long hours with way too short a break. Unreliable with pay.
CSA (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 15 August 2018
A typical day at work was rushing around all day while management sat about doing nothing, I knew it was nothing because I was in management for a while and knew what had to be done and when. It was a great place to work with collleagues and the job itself was great but the people in charge took advantage, big time.
unpaid lunch, not allowed much for lunch, one tea or plain coffee, no hot chocolate. management
