To be fair to SW I don't think I was cut out for an admin role, so I was never particularly motivated to progress within the department I found myself working in. That said I found the management were of a reasonable standard - but nothing brilliant - they do work hard to accommodate you and your life balances. Training was average, although other staff helped take up the slack.

Work/Life balance is of massive importance to me and the companies involvement with flexi-time made this very easy to manage my time and take care of things outside of work more easily.

Management are a shambles they don't back you on anything, the polices and procedures you are made to follow don't work with the kind of jobs we have to deal with and if you don't follow them you get hunted down like a criminal

I worked in the contact centre for a year and a half and it was great. Pay is very good especially at the weekend and everyone is lovely to work with. Learning to work with stakeholders is great. Also learning extra tasks such is emails and social media is also fantastic.

Promised £5k worth of overtime . Lucky to get £1k per annum.

Salary around £26800 considering your working with raw sewage this is pretty poor.


Continuously scrutinised by senior management.too many chiefs and not enough Indians!


Major plant failures lead to very repetitive tasks being carried out.


If only the public knew how there money is used they'd be absolutely shocked!
Pros
Early finish on a friday 3.30pm
Cons
Wages, raw sewage, managment, standby rota
