Minor works Coordinator (Estates) (Current Employee) – London – 13 July 2018
The best thing about Interserve FM is the flexibility and the opportunity the management gives to the employees to grow. A typical work at interserve is always fun because of the inter relationship among staff, the most enjoyable part of working with Interserve fm is the sense of belonging the management and work place makes you feel.

Cleaner (part-time) (Former Employee) – Cornwall – 16 June 2018
I worked for interserve cleaning a school for just under a year, I enjoyed working with my colleagues, however most months they would get loads of our tax codes wrong no matter how many times they were informed of the right one, the pay was great for me as a young student as they pay the national living wage to everyone rather than the minimum wage for your age group, however there were no incentives and overtime often got missed off, at Christmas they offered the caretakers at the school we cleaned a Christmas party however didn’t organise and pay for one for the cleaners who often worked with the caretakers anyway which was a shame so had to organise our own, there were also a few incidents with a manager being inappropriate however nothing was done, luckily he left on his own accord a few months later. For me the hours fitted in well with college and was good pay for someone of my age however they look at staff as replaceable and just numbers rather than assets to their business which caused high labour turnover.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Hastings – 16 June 2018
I was lied to about what my hours would be prior to signing a contract. I also didn't even sign a contract until my fourth shift which is when I realised they had lied to me. Awful communication, underpaid several times and generally just a very unprofessional environment.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Nottinghamshire – 12 June 2018
I worked on a site in security sector for 10 years and soon as interserve took over we experienced problems pay roll messing wages up month after month some staff owed thousands, very poor management nobody interested area management and above , total disregard of Heath and safety , threaten staff with there jobs to work overtime to which you never get payed for decided after 24 months enough was enough along with most of the working team we found other jobs , if I can give you one bit of advise look at another company to work for. If do have the very unfortunate opportunity to work for this company I asure you they will owe you money and you will not get it back.
Carpenter & Joiner (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 10 June 2018
Liverpool City Council Maintenance & Building Work Dept. Was a fantastic place to learn my trade. I was tutored in all aspects of carpentry and joinery and enjoyed my time immensely. Unfortunately the M&BWD not existed in the same form for many years and I for one was sorry to see it's decline. DLO is the way to go.
A typical day of work there were a lot of phone calls and emails to be made and administration as you would expect ,
always extremely busy in the 2 months i was there always on the go was demanding
I didn't feel like I had much of a voice . management decided we followed
Really enjoyed helping people the patients as much as possible in my brief time there.
The working environment however at times was awfully uncomfortable , from myco workers and fellow staff and i felt the higher up you went the more detached and somewhat dry and unsupportive it became .
Not as warm and pleasant as I had hoped for when starting.from some of the reviews i had read before applying
.Interserve branch had some good visions but I felt they were just that visions ..
it just my view but I think its been one of the toughest and worst places to work in my 12 years as working as nurse.for both private agencies and the NHS .

Technical Cleaner (Current Employee) – Welwyn Garden City – 28 May 2018
Expect payroll to mess up your tax code regardless of providing correct documents, Expect them to maybe correct their mistake after 3 months. Expect to be overworked, unappreciated and generally miserable. Don`t sign any contract without looking at the overtime pay as in my case it was capped, there was no time and a half or double time just an extra 25 pence extra an hour if your lucky. I would like to say this company is multicultural but that would be a lie I was the only native English speaker there. In short avoid this company at all costs just terrible!
It is o hour contract job which may be suitable for students......bad management
Social Worker (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 May 2018
It is o hour contract job which may be suitable for students......and benefits only for management......shame, no quality personnel in management and poor quality management. Need to do training for hold that posts in management and dictatorship attitude has not need in this organisation. Staff shacking is not bravery but good management is the key.
Cleaning Supervisor (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 23 May 2018
The jobs are okay, it's just normal work to be honest. The issue with interserve is it's management, not just at ground level but it goes quite high up. Incidents do not get dealt with, even if you don't feel safe. I was threatened on site and was told by my manager to just avoid them. HR is almost non existent, it would get to the point I'd end up just laughing at the end of a call.
If you work for Interserve get used to having to deal with your own issues. Like I say the works just normal work but the management is hopeless.
