Productive and Brilliant people to work for
I worked for this company for a year or so they are a brilliant company to work for, always there to help out if something happens to cover shifts or give more shifts. Enjoyed that every day was different

Very poor.
Management has always been the biggest problem within mears. No matter how long youve worked there, how loyal you are or how hard you work... Poor management can destroy that in an instant. It couldnt be truer in this branch. Zero regard for contract breaches, dont know basic rules and regulations, dont know the system and are more than happy to try and blame management's own mistakes and lack of understanding onto others with no regard of the consequences.  And even after its been proven that it was management at fault... Still tells staff it wasn't. An unbelievable way to not only run a buisness but to behave as a human beings.

You are nothing but a number to Mears unless you are upper managment and willing to give up every moral. The staff deserve so much better than the unprofessional way they are treated.


Life is a lot better when you finally leave!!!

Nightmare
Horrible company, 12 of us moved to the company, under TUPE, we were not wanted , all have now left, systems don't work, no support, management lie, no trust, have to supply picture evidence of everything, including 6 of van in the morning.
Not even given an email address , management fabricate disciplinary action, HR are in cahoots with management. Mears have now lost the contract, If you value your sanity, do not work for these idiots, hopefully they will go bust.

General a good company to work for .
Worked in 3 branches with Mears all different and challenging. Started as a administrator for a couple of years got promoted to senior administrator/ Office manager, to project coordinator, So there is opportunity to grow move up in the business.

Some people are desperate for a job, so have no options but to except, please please please, if you have other options take them, you will regret taking a job with this heartless company Making people smile...................

Poor to say the least
I feel undervalued and over worked and Mears do not value my opinion or experience but they do care about profits and shareholders

I moved over with lots of colleague from a past company under TUPE last year and from day one it’s been difficult to say the least. It’s hard to do my job because Mears do not give me the time to check and inspect the asylum properties and I am always dealing with service users that complain via charities and other organisations about the service and property they live within


I moved on TUPE with lots of senior management and maintenance staff too and lots of those have left now. I don’t see a future in my job and contract and cannot recommend working for Mears at all

Awful company
No care for their employees at all. Coatbridge maintenance branch run by a bunch of monkeys. You won't get anywhere in here unless your friends with the 'right' people or a man. Very unprofessional HR department. The things that go on are shocking.
