Holiday camp
Grounds man (Former Employee) –  Kings lynn12 February 2019
If you like going on holiday then this is the ideal job for you.. NORSE do not care if you have the correct equipment let alone the knowledge or experience.. they have a handful of hardworking grafters and the rest are just cling ons doing absolutely jack all day, This absolutely infuriates a handful of us who do get the job done and take pride in our work.. Considering we are on minimum wage and doing the job of people half our ages that cannot be bothered. Norse you’re constantly backtracking and seriously need to have a major shakeup before your ex grounds maintenance manager poachers the grafters that actually do work !!!

Do not work for them!!!
Cleaner (part-time) (Former Employee) –  Norwich, Norfolk19 February 2019
Horrible company, does not care about the employees.
They only care about money, they will treat you poorly, with no respect, make you work more than you have to, fire you for no reason and definitely not care if you have any health condition. They WILL fire you if you have a chronic disease and it's not convenient to have you as an employee anymore. They will also give bad references to your future employers not revealing the full details of the situation, but only what makes you look bad.
I never had training, nor a uniform, manager never picked up the phone or showed up at the working place, there was no supervisor and supplies were often short or non-existent.
Pros
You have money until you can find a better job.
Cons
Everything else

Management useless and the company works on a favorite basis. Only management "friends" get offered overtime and is not shared out equally. Wages are never right and management have no interest in sorting the problem.

No day is the same in the job. It's a challenge but fun and rewarding. Get to meet some amazing people, hear some great stories and basically feel reward for being part of people's lives making a difference.

If your face fits
Catering Assistant (Former Employee) –  King's Lynn, Norfolk18 February 2018
Childish staff and management don't handle things respectively from both sides of any conflict wouldn't have thought working in the kitchen would make the staff act the way the children do. The management don't seem to know anything that goes on as they never check in
Pros
Fits around school terms
Cons
Having to wash EVERY bit of washing up by hand (back breaking)
