Good family company
Conway's was a great place to work as long as you were getting your work done, it was a very relaxed place to work. they are willing to put you through various courses paid for by the company to extend your knowledge and provide you with qualifications that benefit you as well as the company.

Jobs with no limits
Worked here for 12 years! Started as operative worked up to contract supervisor, work hard and don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself. Be reliable and willing you could be working here a long time. Overall a great place to work with strict Health & Safety policy’s. If you drink or take drugs then this is definitely not the job for you!

Poor
The job was good but the supervisors and upper manager's were twits. Stealing bonuses and knocking of hours worked. If your face doesn't fit your out. Please avoid at all costs. The Bedford area contract I was on was criminal in the way it was run

It a if your face fits company
Supervisor will bully you out of your job by making life hard so you quit.

If your a driver you will not be sacked as drivers are hard to recruit but if your an operative you will be bullied so you quit my advise is stay away look for something else
Pros
None
Cons
Everything... supervisor ... wages

If your face fits
Over worked & underpayed and pay for one person to the next is not the same for the same job and so it is not a level playing field, especially when you know as you have been told by people on higher rates of pay
Pros
I am not sure
Cons
Be warned

Good stable company to work for and no one day is the same, there are many departments within the company which covers a diverse range of skills. the company owns many sites in the South East and London employing from local areas and outside.

Not enough time spent on BANKSMAN
Management didn’t care about staff as they were getting backhands from certain gangs & was always sticking up for them.Also you’re health and safety legislation is a load of RUBBISH especially when it comes to REVERSING when in your talk you simply SAY you should NEVER REVERSE without a BANKSMAN.

productive and fun work place
A typical day at work would consist of me waking up at 6am travelling to construction site for 8am. I would immediately inform site manager of my arrival and begin helping the other members of the gang with road development.
I learned about how roads are developed and the time and energy that goes into re- constructing a road strip.

The management is tight and strict expecting top work effort from the gang members as road image must be held to a high standard

Company full of lies
Got an interview with this company whilst I was living away. Flew in for the interview job role: Operative. Was given so many promises. i.e. Vehicle, living and higher salary after probation. I left my country came in for the job, to find out that I have to find a place to rent myself and had to buy a vehicle also myself as the department I was working for didn't even bothered to find one for me. So 2 lies so far... After my probation period I had a talk with my boss who's always in the office and has no clue what is happening on the site, so there's miscommunication all the time. So he tells me that I'm not good enough and expands my probation for another 3 months. I told him that: 'Look I don't mind about the payment, but it's just nothing that we talked in the beginning, just give me weekends and double shifts' I didn't mind to do the hours because I left my family back home, just wanted to save as much money as possible. I was earning about 2k after tax, which wasn't that bad, but I had to buy a car, pay all the taxes, insurance, plus rent.... so it all added up to quite a big amount and money I was sending home was pennies. So after all that talk with my boss, he promised to give me double shifts and over time, which never happened. So I stayed for another 3 months in the company still giving hopes that it will change, I asked to be moved to other departments it also didn't happen I was told that our boss hates when people move from that department so I was left with no other way. Overall I heard that other departments are different and better, but I believe I just got - more...

Poor management and rude office staff
Management only interested in themselves, you just a moving cog in a very big wheel, if the wheel breaks they just replace the cog no question asked. That’s it you out they dont care about you.
Salary’s is good for what you do, but your salary idea wears thin with all the stuff you have to put up with.

Don’t waste your time and effort, stay away
Pros
Van and wages
Cons
Extremely Poor management

ok workplace bad management
enjoyable, but untrustworthy senior management. i felt sorry for ceo
but then i realized he chose to ignore what was going on.

i think a lot of their clients would think twice if they knew what was going on.

Good place to work
Great environment to work in. Very results driven but still supportive. You are challenged to get the most out of your contracts and most management get that and work within those parameters

The self delivery ethos is ingrained in the culture which can sometimes lead to more internal conflict than necessary but everyone pulls together eventually


Management can get a literal jittery especially when challenged by the CEO. Some decisions seem a little whimsical and at times few managers seem willing to stand up for what they believe in if it is in stark contrast to CEO view.


Culture driven around safety and training is great
Pros
Great environment
Cons
Silo culture
