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

Cons
Everything else

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

Approach with Care
Services Assistant Level 3 (Former Employee) –  Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire5 November 2017
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 who 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.
Pros
Some nice employees
Cons
Bullying culture

Great people, poor management.
HR Advisor (Current Employee) –  Beverley29 April 2017
Fantastic people who I work with. Team hampered by high rate of turn around due to low pay and very little job security. Team leaders do a great job. Upper and middle management have no idea and paid far too much. Upper management given 'golden hellos' and outrageous allowances whilst they refuse to help the lowest paid. Very little encouragement or gratitude if your job is done well. Quick to criticise and punish.
Pros
The odd discount at local shops/amenities.
Cons
Constant reviews and restructures.

Pros
Always an enjoyable place to work.

Sometimes the bus journey to work was a bit tedious.

Support Services Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Bridlington and Beverley10 April 2017
Great variety of work to go for. Sometimes guilty of change for the sake of change, but a lot going on in the council at the moment.

I worked in Support Services. Very supportive line managers and they do try to get the best out of you. Work is varied and you'll be expected to cross train to give flexibility on cover. Training is provided and support is always there.
Pros
Secure work, good benefits
Cons
If you don't like a regular change this may not be for you

Community Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire27 December 2016
A typical day would involve seeing people with disabilities, recovering from surgery, mental health ailments and other limitations making progress towards reablement.

The management culture was extremely paperwork heavy as expected in a highly regulated environment.

Dealing with suicide prevention cases and emotionally unstable clients could be a challenge.
Pros
Large number of training courses
Cons
Austerity
