DRIVER, TEMP AGENCIES (Former Employee) –  Guildford14 October 2018
As a temp, some appointments were interesting and learnt something to add to your knowledge, other not so. Treated well though.

Could be long days but you took the rough with the smooth.

Most enjoyable part of the day was, as always, going home!.
Pros
Great variety & generally good conditions.
Cons
Long hours and some rates poor.

Driver (Former Employee) –  Inverness2 October 2018
Great work/life balance, pick what shifts you want to do each week. Hourly rate isn't industry leading but the flexibility and wide range of opportunities help.

unsociable hours

Productive with bad management
Self Employed (Former Employee) –  Greenside, Tyne and Wear22 April 2018
Work day started at 3.30am, deliver ready mixed mortar to designated building sites around the North East area and drive within HGV hours. After every delivery I had to wash out the machines. I learnt good communications skills with new building site managers, along with time management skills.It was a solitary job, mainly working along. The hardest part of the job were the hours with little time off. The most enjoyable part of the job was delivering further afield and seeing new areas and meeting new people.
Pros
Paying off a new lorry
Cons
Working hours, stress and anxiety of fulfilling delivery deadlines

badly run

i think this place is badly run, as there are to many chiefs and not enough Indians, people think there higher up than other people because the boss has favorites.
Pros
some nice lads
Cons
to many bosses
