Stores/Recycling Assistant (Former Employee) –  Garrison, North Yorkshire, UK29 November 2018
Good stable company to work for.
Management are always at hand or a phone call away to support staff with any issues raised.
They don't pay rock-star wages but there are always opportunities to improve and progress with constant support and training packages in-house.

Poor pay bad management
Cleaner (Current Employee) –  South Manchester16 November 2018
The work is hard, which is fine as time goes fast. Manager has no interest in job, rarely seen. Team meetings consists of being sent a memo and signing to say you attended. Even that is overseen by supervisor not manager.
Pay is minimum, which is NOT good as your not allowed to take holidays in term time.Even though the manager does.
A lot of staff are unable to use buffers or carpet cleaners, therefore you have to do the heavy machine work in their areas as well as your own. Always short staffed, manager comes and goes as she pleases, never helps out.
Payslips and P60 are all online, which is a pain as site is always crashing, and constantly changes your password and user name
Nobody really wants to be a cleaner, can't recall ever aspiring to cleaning a toilet after a total stranger had made a mess on it, general feeling is anyone can clean, however not everyone would clean ! Companies like sodexo should acknowledge that and value their staff !
Pros
Local work
Cons
Low pay. Hard work. Poor management.

Very Stressful
Solutionline (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester3 November 2018
Working on Solutionline, calls would reach upto 400 a day between 10 of us which meant breathing space was very rare. I felt management did not really help with making life easier as the business would make IT related decisions without our consideration which would increase the amount of calls a day. I felt this was very stressful as sometimes I would not be able to think and would still be continuously answering calls.
Pros
Day wold go fast
Cons
Short Lunch, Stressful, Aggressive Customers

Sales & Events Executive (Former Employee) –  Edinburgh24 October 2018
All and all the job itself was enjoyable and helped me learn a lot about managing staff and my time, as most days I would have a number of events taking place.
