Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 10 December 2018
Everyday was a different task. I enjoyed my time working with the people i worked with. We all looked out for each other and good use of teamwork and communication to complete our goals for the day. Working with Sodexo taught me how to communicate with a team to complete tasks more effectively. Also some skills such as serving, recording temperatures, completing daily recordings.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – South Manchester – 16 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 !
Solutionline (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 3 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.

Teacher (Current Employee) – HMP Forest Bank, Manchester – 12 September 2013
I have worked for this company for over ten years as a business studies teacher, during which time I have been able to develop the business course independently. I have enjoyed this part of the job immensely as it has provided me with the freedom to make my own decisions. I am also expected to teach other subject areas, such as functional skills level 1 and 2 maths and English, information technology to CLAIT Level 1 and CLAIT Plus standard, as well as other basic skills maths and English. I work with all prisoner types and often teach those who are housed on a separate wing away from the mainstream buildings.
The most difficult part of the job is management decision making that often affects me and my main teaching area as I have often been asked to move classrooms, which means I often lose resources such as the interactive board. This can also have a detrimental affect on numbers of students in class as any time changes often do not fit in with their other prison activities such as visits etc.
The salary and opportunities for teaching staff do not encourage motivation and to this end I have decided that I need to look for another kind of challenge else where.
lunches are provided
No bonus or promotional opportunities and little if any training.

Personal Assistant (Current Employee) – Manchester – 8 August 2013
Diary management for NHS Operations Director, Exec Finance Director and their teams, booking travel & accommodation, working on various projects, arranging meetings and ad hoc requests. I have completed training courses in all MS Office packages and various other courses including personal development. I have learned new aspects of the business as my PA role has grown. I work with a good team of PA's who are very friendly and helpful. The hardest park of the job would be that we are understaffed due to cost cutting and there is to much work which becomes stressful at times, however we always manage. I enjoy working on projects which are challenging.
Prison Officer (Current Employee) – manchester – 7 December 2013
My role as an officer gives me a lot of responsibility including the security, supervision, training and rehabilitation of people committed to prison. My role entails motivating prisoners to change their behaviour so they may leave prison with what may be new life skills that they may never have been exposed to before. My role is to be non-judgemental, supportive and to act as a role model so prisoners may rehabilitate within a safe and healthy environment. In addition to my custodial duties, I must ensure that I am able to establish and maintain positive working relationships with prisoners by balancing authority with understanding and compassion, in order to facilitate effective rehabilitation. The nature of my role demands the ability to think on your feet, make quick decisions and deal effectively with the unexpected.
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Manchester, ENG – 2 February 2014
I start at 7.30am and go into theatres and eye clinics to ensure the cleaning has been carried out to standards set by NHS management. I then need to enter my findings onto a table database system. Any complaints made have to be fed back to management. I like to think I make a difference and ensure standards are kept for the safety of all NHS patients so the job is important. I enjoy chatting to the staff and making sure things are done properly.
