Cleaner (part-time) (Former Employee) – Maidstone – 29 November 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The shop I worked in was great I’ve met some amazing people, but my line manager was awful! Shouted at me and stressed me out a lot while pregnant, and doesn’t like it if you have time off because your baby is ill! I honestly would never work for this company again!

Manager that screams at you then tells you he has a lot of sites to manage. In my opinion dont take a job on if you cant handle it Wages wrong every month.dont even think trying to get your holidays off is going to be how it should be .always pending rediculous system.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Washington – 29 September 2018
I worked as a cleaner for Interserve for 6 years at HMRC in Washington, Tyne & Wear, before the contract was taken over by another company. We had a good cleaning team that worked well together. Pay was always correct and on time. Management is luck of the draw I think. We started out with a manager so laid back that it was hard to get problems sorted quickly such as when equipment needed replacing. After they left, the new manager was excellent - very proactive and made sure problems were sorted promptly. As with many such companies I think worker experience will vary from site to site.
A very professional company to work for . I have worked with interserve for nearly two years and have developed into a confident cleaning manager .If you work hard then the only way is up if you can wait for positions to become available .

Cleaner full time (Former Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 12 September 2018
Must be the worse place i worked for, i was there for just over a year my team were great we all grafted to get the job done plus any extras we could fit in but tools to do the job were always broken and most the time unsafe to use but yet managment still wanted us to use it. other staff members who were lazy but kissed up to managment are the ones that had it the best but the real workers who cared about the job got the short end of the stick. It all comes down to bad/bully/clueless managment. Avoid Avoid Avoid
Certain nice members of staff
no ppe. ask to do jobs we weren't meant to do. broken tools.unappreciated
Cleaner (part-time) (Former Employee) – Crawley, West Sussex – 10 September 2018
I worked for this company and was told to do more hours and then when I was paid only got 18 for 9 hours work have tried a number of times to sort this out to be told that it would be paid next month so infact you have to work a month in hand was not told this at interview and if I was would not have taken the job all iam saying is be very careful with this company as I think they see that they can take adventage and do
The people are great BUT there's a clear lack of incentive
Cleaner (part-time) (Current Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne – 22 August 2018
I like my collogues. I like my manager. I like the store I'm contracted to. However, we regularly get bombarded with leaflets on how Interserve would like to reward our hard work, or how they dish out opportunities to "further your career" etc etc. In my experience, it's just meaningless paperwork... I wouldn't mind, but they require you sign it and leave them "feedback"... rate your own performance and stuff. Personally, I take a lot of pride in what I do and when I leave, I know I'll be missed. Oh, and another thing, they'll give you the t-shirts and jumpers to wear but want you to buy your own trousers and shoes too. I wouldn't mind, but they have to be black. I didn't own any black trousers or jeans, so I just wear blue jeans for work. My manager will regularly bring this up when she pops into the store... that passive aggressive half-joking thing. The bother is, if they care so much they should really provide everyone with the full kit. That way, you don't get one wearing black jeans, one wearing black trousers and the other wearing grey trainers. Would look much smarter if everyone had matching uniforms. My manager has mentioned me wearing blue jeans to the store manager on a couple of occasions and he's literally turned round and said "I honestly don't care".

Things have been rocky at Interserve with having so many different cleaners none of what have been good enough at last we have another cleaner that’s very good shame she’s off on the sick at the moment be glad when she comes back .and been through bosses at Interserve like I don’t no what very hard work to get hold of someone other than that you are left alone to get on with the job , which is good as all the work gets Done
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.
