A good employer to work for. But there is a lot of responsibility. Communications should be improved and management can be disorganised. Hours and pay are fair.

Blame culture throughout and managers who have no back bone and constantly lie, they have no people skills and ignore any goings on to save any grief for themselves. No matter what problem or complaint anyone has there is no backup and according to managers it’s all Chinese whispers!!!

A typical day at work was cutting grass all day. I learned various things. The management where resonable The culture was easy going. The harest part was working out in the rain. The enjoyable part was the people you worked with.

I have worked with SLC for over a decade in various roles in a number of Services and Resources, including Education, Corporate and Environmental. I currently enjoy the benefits afforded by the availability of flexible working hours as well as being able to manage my own workload and set my own activities daily.

first off the payroll department will mess up you wages for three to four months of the season, they will not forward your opt out of the pension scheme when it is allowed by law for you to opt out, line managers will lie to you on various aspects, they will also refuse to file complaints you give about being assaulted by clients, I faced also months of bullying in the yard they did not care, they also have a huge degree of nepotism in the organisation, they tell you that you have a fulltime job in the midst which was a lie, folks do not apply for a grounds seasonal job with south Lanarkshire I would not even place a dead person in that place, avoid them like the plague the job just is not worth it

Over worked, under staffed - takes personnel months to recruit - underpaid - management poor - not enough progression, plus if you face matches you get it.

Your a body in a seat.

Terrible place to work ,
Full of lay abouts who have never worked a hard day in their life’s


Management is corrupt, bully boy tactics, overtime only for boys of same religion.

Reported this HR nothing done about it.

Drivers smoking in vehicles breaking law, doing there wee side jobs and

giving some of Managers a bung !

Management turn blind eye to what their mates are doing, hammer guys that do their work.

Absolute joke of a place to work and for a pittance of pay .


Avoid at all costs if you value your health.

Place run by to balloons D at Carluke .

Other balloon is C ar Blantyre.

Two idiots that share one pea brain.

The people you work with are a great bunch of people but the management staff could be trusted to run a bath, the bullying unbelievable from the management and the pay is low for the job and people with less responsibilities
within the council are paid more. Family and friends are treated better and don't have to sign out like everybody else. Work wear is poor quality. yemanagement

Low pay for high pressure positions. Rolling 12 month sickness contract puts staff with long term illnesses and disabilities under incredible amounts of pressure.

I enjoy my job but at times become frustrated with the council. They are a bit backwards at times and not always very understanding. On a positive note I enjoy working in a school environment and love the school holidays.
