Honestly can't complain
Caretaker (Current Employee) –  Dorchester, Dorset12 August 2019
I feel that the employer cares for me. Excellent pension scheme.
Salary not the greatest but other benefits make up for this.
Company is definitely going places.

Maintenance inspector (Former Employee) –  Ever dean, Dorchester30 May 2019
Taken on as a maintenance surveyor but my title was changed to maintenance inspector.
Wasn’t shown how to operate the IT system and couldn’t log on to most of it.
Was given very little work to do but was expected to sit at a computer all day doing nothing.
Managers were not at all helpful and was being watched all the time.
Despite having an HGV licence, tow a large twin axle caravan all over Europe every year, and also tow a horse box I was expected to take a driving test to show I was safe, unbelievable.
They withheld my final salary because I mistakenly forgot to give the iPad charging lead back, which was so petty.
Wouldn’t recommend anyone work for this company especially in the maintenance department.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible managers

Office worker (Current Employee) –  Dorchester, Dorset16 July 2018
I've worked for many companies and have to say that Magna is the best so far.
Good benefits, supportive culture and the ability to take responsibility for the work that you do.
I don't understand the other two reviews on here as that's not the Magna I know and see.
Pros
Employee benefits, supportive culture, friendly colleagues and atmosphere.

Having worked for Technical services department for 2yrs there was no issues and that department is highly professional and a privilege to work for

Sadly the same can't be said iof the Building Services department,unfortunately the management of this department is not at all good,managers totally out of their depth and a blame culture that is sadly toxic and extremely unprofessional.
