Bad company stear clear!!!!! Lovely colleagues and nice place to work. But pay is regularly short by anything from 6hrs to 60hrs and very difficult to get paid what your owed waiting until next payday and sometimes longer. Difficult to get annual leave and when you do your not paid for it correctly. Always covering sickness or staffing problems Management don’t have a clue what they are doing.
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Feltham – 25 June 2018
Everything! The people are all super nice and friendly, probably because we are all treated with respect. Really relaxed, family style atmosphere but doesn't stop your ability to work like some places. Great benefits and snacks/drinks provided. Management really take the time to talk to everyone and listen to opinions. Training budget is great and you are encouraged to use it.
Stocktaker (Former Employee) – Merthyr Tydfil – 29 May 2018
Worked as a stocktaker, pay sucks, hours suck, people are alright though. Give it a bash if your desperate I suppose. Work is easy enough, if extremely tedious and boring. Management is a bit of a gamble, there's a handful of good ones there though.
10/10 "It's alright" - IGN
Unpaid travel, long hours, long periods of no work (December especially)
The management say they are approachable but they’re not and willing to stab you in back given chance
Surveyor (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 2 April 2018
Poor pay for what you do, they give you unrealistic deadlines, the management have said that they are approachable but the’re not. If you have an opinion/ complaints they don’t like you having too much of an opinion. Also you don’t feel like a valued employee as they can just get rid of you and draft more sub- contractors in.
Company van, pension, uniform, regular pay
Low salary, extremely poor management on all levels. Don’t want to pay overtime
Event Steward (Current Employee) – Stratford, Greater London – 25 January 2018
I have enjoyed my time working for OCS with nothing bad to say about the job. Staff are very friendly, they work around your time which helps with my education. I also have recommended a couple of friends for this job and would recommended any one who is in full-time education or earn a bit of money on the side if you are working full-time.
Flexible, friendly, social, well paid
Organisation with over booking staff can sometimes be a problem.
I lasted 1 week, working at OCS in Renfrew, I have never worked in such a horrible, dreary place, clearly its the management that bring this place down, I was lied to about my starting salary and I just did not trust any the staff.
Poor Company, and you never know where your next shift is coming from
Stocktaker (Current Employee) – Walsall, West Midlands – 10 October 2017
Have been working for OCS since April and have only ever completed 2 shifts because the hrs are all over the place. You either get contacted by the mini bus driver last minute or you make your request known online. You don't get paid to travel and the money you do make is very little for the hours you're actually working rather than traveling.
Janitor/Cleaner (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 17 September 2017
I enjoyed my time working with OCS, my work unit was small but we where pretty close. Managers worked well with staff, work balance could be hectic but the compeny was willing to pay overtime. There are plenty of different role within OCS.
