Never Again!
Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Beverley14 November 2018
I love cleaning but working here made me hate it! I lost all motivation working for the Council. You are treated like a subhuman no one appreciates your hard work. Never met such a bunch of backstabbers than here. Unfortunately there is a problem with bullying which the management does not address seen a lot of my collegues signed off with depression or stress.
Pros
Some nice collegues
Cons
Bullying

Good job, bad office politics
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  County Hall6 October 2018
The job itself, an admin role, is fine as it is, but if you have more than 2 brain cells it will become mundane within 6 months. The office politics clouds the vision of those in management and prevents any real change happening. Aside from all of that, the 9-5, mon-fri work week is ideal for most and the leave, sick pay etc is all standard of what any employer should provide anyway but its a plus.
Pros
Lovely people, ideal shift patterns
Cons
office politics, alot of brown nosing

Cons
Far travel.

Approach with Care
Services Assistant Level 3 (Former Employee) –  Beverley16 May 2018
If your face fits and you can shout people down, you will get on well with East Riding of Yorkshire Council. If not, then possibly you won't. Longevity of service means nothing at the end of the day & if you are off work for more than one long term absence due to a disclosed congenital condition, then don't expect any sympathy from this organisation.

Don't get me wrong I enjoyed large parts of my time & there are some very nice and pleasant senior members of staff within this employer but this service was hampered by periods which were not so pleasant & there are too many Managers whom don't listen. whatever the known outcome even if they have been told repeatedly, whom are too wrapped up in their own self-importance & delusional place in society to do the right thing.

Support Services Assistant (Current Employee) –  county hall28 March 2018
Culture of bullying and if your face fits. If you like to brown nose and would like to sit around in meetings drinking coffee all day this is the work place for you.
If you would like good wages and progression on merit work somewhere else.
Pros
25% off ERYC caffees
Cons
Everything else

A horrid company
Casual Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Bridlington, North Yorkshire3 March 2018
I was employed on a casual basis ,i didn't know that the council look upon casual staff as sub human .The staff have a bullying outlook towards you ,I have never come across such back stabbing people in my whole life ,they are always moaning about each other and make up storys about you .
The management is a disgrace and can and did send you a p45 without any reason ,i learned how nasty people can be ,i didn't find anything enjoyable about my time there .The hardest part is trying to keep cool whilst your so called work mates slander you .
Pros
Nothing
Cons
A bullying cultute, evil vile work mates

screw you over
Ex calibration assistant (Former Employee) –  hull and market weighton28 February 2018
Calibration assistant/HGV driver.
Very poor below average wage for a HGV driver,for someone with a lot of experience driving abnormal load. although the wagon is new you need movement orders to take it on the roads and the extra length (very near 3mtrs extra in length) of a normal artic.
the job itself is 3 in 1. administration, hgv driver and fork truck.
other companies are paying 3-6k more for similar work.
if you want to gain your class 1 licence and fork truck licence good place to get it and leave straight away like the last new driver they had.
The second driver has a different title for doing the same job and IS PAID approx. £3k more.
none existent overtime, OVERNIGHT money paid a month in arrears, any possible overtime could come 2 months later.
Pros
easy job for monkeys
Cons
lousey wage, management that doesn't know the transport side

Hard working staff, limited by resources
Application analyst (Former Employee) –  Beverley28 February 2018
The organisation is passionate about improving the lives of those in it's care. The hard working staff are limited mainly by cuts to funding and a lack of freedom to invest in the best products to make services more efficient.
Pros
Freedom to work at home, home life balance
Cons
Low pay, limited progression
