Ganymede is fraud toying on people looking for job in rail sector. They receive thousands of pounds on each jobseeker from Government to train them and will sugarcoats you about getting jobs but it’s all lies you won’t get any job from them after training. It’s also difficult to get rail jobs from other companies as Ganymede is your “first sponsor” which means you must work with Ganymede first for experience in order to move to other company. At the end your sentinel card will be cancelled, that means nearly 3 months of training gone down the drain. AVOID AT ALL COST.
Pros
Colleagues are good
Cons
Everything

Rubbish if your just starting on railway you get treated like dirt and discriminated because your new. Shifts change at a moment's notice when you raise your concerns you get de-sponsored.

Always answer any questions that I ask, working as a contractor is flexible the hours are there if needed, if training is required they provide the necessary training for you.

The role was enjoyable from a social perspective, however the work was heavy going, demanding and fast paced. Unsocial working hours and weekend work made this job less enjoyable.

Ganymede is a good first company to work for, however not much work is given and the pay isn't that great for the job given. Good people to work with and good if you are looking to pick up new skills

The work is great and plenty of it on occasions. But like many many more people who have worked for this company they will tell you, you might aswell work for free as the management e.g. Steve Gardner and Justin have no place in an office, I would never get payed, I had to use my own fuel money and never got it back after countless excuses, and work corruption is high on their agenda as long as their getting their wages and cash. Never work for the South Wales branch unless your a mug. How these guys still got a job says it all about this company. I don't advise unless you want to work for free.
Pros
Good work and and good boys on the work site
Cons
Steve Gardner and his countless excuses to many poor boys who work their socks off to not get payed.

you get the freedom to do the work that it should be competed in your own time and in a responsible manner. The hardest part of the job is the travelling distance to the workplace.
Pros
not the hardest of jobs.
Cons
out of the house for long hours

It was a great environment to work in, and the pay could be great. But the job security was terrible and work dropped off regular. Social life? None if you wanted to work... but pays well.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
unstable
