Porter / Handyman (Former Employee) – Leeds and various sites – 3 February 2016
Work started 9.00am do rounds of the offiices I was based at. Make notes of things that needed doing ie change lighting if needed, escort contractors around site if they did not have clearance, (counter terrorist clearance ). Management was over seen by line manager. Co-workers were a good group. The hardest part of the job was the protarcol at the UK Boarder Agency. The most enjoyable was when I ws on the road to attend different jobs.
Overall seemed to be a promising company to work for with good ideas

I wasnt with them for very long i was actually employed by Accent Group. Interserve had started taking over the company shortly before i left for maternity leave. But from what i did hear off them seemed pretty good
housekeeper (Former Employee) – leeds seacroft – 14 October 2013
as working for interserve the hours was long and having 2 jobs in 1 like cleaning and catering and for what we were getting paid and I felt like nothing was being achieved as co workers was lazy and having to do 2 peoples work when they don't show up supervisors didn't learn the catering part when they were employed. senior supervisors and managers never spoke to us or helped. the paper work was all over the place and nothing was done about it. I learned coshh and manual handling and level 2 in food and hygiene.The hardest part of the job was the paper work having to complete all areas and fill paper work in not enough cleaning was done.
lovely staff and patients level 2 food hygiene, coshh, made a difference on the ward and met some friends.
lazy co workers, low pay for 2 jobs, doing 2 peoples work, managers and senior supervisors not being supportive.
Work Programme Work Coach (Former Employee) – Leeds – 8 February 2013
The work programme is fast pace. I enjoyed helping people with their barriers to work. My typicaI day involved meeting and greeting clients and helping them with their barriers to work such as referring them to various organisations/ agencies/ providers, job search, job workshops, telephone reviews, administration of client records and creating new records/ updating existing ones. I would always be rushed off my feet and sometimes if my clients turned up late I would work during my lunch hour. I enjoyed all aspects of client interaction and administration. I found that time was an issue when spending time with clients as most of them needed intensive help. I also found that because of the recession, finding jobs proved harder for those who had not worked for such a long time. My co-workers were always supportive and friendly. I enjoyed team work as well as having my own caseload.
good pay rate and flexibility with own caseload management
the work programme is government funded and the funding is not stable.
Work Coach (employment advisor) (Former Employee) – Leeds – 31 July 2012
This review is based on being a Work Coach(employment advisor) High staff turnover as far as Work Coaches go, poor resources, low morale, lack of respect from managers, high pressure with no reward. DOOM AND GLOOM, and I say this in the upmost confidence! I had a posative attitude when I started as a was new to the field, but the life has been gradually sucked out of me. Most Work Coaches are depressed, FACT! should be out of there soon, many peple leave. I am even cosidering a pay cut just to move on.
