I was the cleaning manager, I was at the store 2 years with No problems then we TUPED to gs associates which I worked another 9 months at the store. To be honest the Store management was more supportive than gs associates. There was no communication from the company and if there was it was wrong. I had no Line manger to turn to for advise. Wouldnt help get cover if we were short staffed The wages was always wrong even though they had correct timesheets sent in.they messed up hoildsy pay it was a jokeive never worked for a company that bad
Pros
good rate of pay
Cons
Wages wrong, hoilday pay wrong, no support from the company, left to cover all shifts

Worked for this company over four months, was bullied and intimidated by colleague who would make snide comments and made to feel unwelcome from the start. Nothing could be done as the supervisor and colleague were related. Shifts would alter daily with texts from supervisor to suit their personal needs. My contract hours were shortened to 12 from 16 but the supervisor and colleague got theirs increased. I reported the colleague about their behaviour towards me to the new area manager to get a response "Oh their just being girls just ignore it". Wouldn't recommend working her unless desperate or the staff have left.
Pros
Easy interview
Cons
Unproffesional, cliquey, short shifts

Worked there 3.5 years. Constantly putting your best efforts down. If you've got a mental health condition don't even bother applying, they have no empathy and will do everything they can to try get rid of you without breaking the law. Atrocious management, not paying my holidays, missing out random pay, it's like getting blood out of a stone getting paid what you're owed.

They employ just about anyone with no interview, and time is constantly wasted getting through tons of staff who can't be bothered and having to do their work for them.


Constantly increasing the workload with no extra hours or pay. Throughout covid we've been provided no PPE and expected to work within close proximity to customers.


An incredibly toxic company, avoid at all costs.

Do not engage in a cleaning contract with this company BEWARE. They lie and cheat there clients out of money when it comes to meeting what they promised to deliver. As an employer they are also equally terrible, pay always incorrect, no support for staff and management and higher management are just bullies squeezing from the top what they can for themselfs. Con merchants and thieves. If you think of applying for a job think very carefully as if your not very now you will be after.

Beware of Higher management asking you to do overtime/extra hours. Don't ever say yes they don't pay you at all for it.

Been with GSA now for 2 years started as cleaner now as site supervisor. I always had support from area manager and was always at the end of telephone . She was a little laid back but she did eventually getting prob solved. Never had probs with pay roll always paid on time and correctly so has my holidays. Early hours I dont mind as rest of the day is mine.

Wages, Equipment, Poor company Communication, spent a lot of time outside of work trying to sort out issues. If I had read the reviews first I would not have taken the job.

Not particularly stressful, once you are used to it. Pay is quite good and they rarely get it wrong. Not challenging work but try your best. May only have one day off.

How this company is still operating is beyond me! they cannot keep staff, they go through them like a child with sweets, 3 weeks into the job and ive had 5 staff leave and its like this continuously across stores that this company are contracted to. Management are an absolute joke, its a circus run by morons...scared of sacking people for offences because they cant get staff! They do nothing but lie to you, undermine you and promise you the world but dont deliver. They expect the highest standards of cleaning with absolutely NO support and backup and they are on the phone to you if u so miss as something silly as a bit of dust. Fortunately for me i speak my mind and ive had run ins with management so i wont let them belittle me, and ive told them quite clearly if they dont treat with me with respect im gone so they try to hold on to you with promises of pay increases etc. You come into this job with no training what so ever, there is no rotas set for the weeks ahead, your basically shown what where and why and thats it, then your own your own from there! you do 2/3 hrs in a morning then 3 hours during an afternoon whilst using basic (and sometimes no) cleaning materials, yes this is true! managers come in to the store when they want, u dont see them for days, even weeks but should u fail an audit, they are on to you! all in all this job is degrading, demoralising and downright energy and life sapping, so if u enjoy being a mug, and being lied to and working your self into an early grave for no appreciation then join this company..for those that can think by themselves..RUN FOR - more...
