My day starts with just me going into work then preparing my equipment in order to get started. I will then wait till staff arrive then let them in and greet them with a good morning or just a hello. Being there it is nice to show that you have curtesy and respect for the staff as well as the management team but more than all it shows that you are able to work with different set of cultural set of people. The hardest part of my job is that I have to wait long at times for staff to arrive before I can leave to go home but the enjoyable part is when I have done my job and feel good that my task for day is over and I can go and rest up ready for the next day plus when it's payday to pay my bills.

They do not provide cleaning equipment's on time. Hours are changed due to their convenience since staff cannot be found to their requirement's. Compared to other Companies the wages are low.Specially when you do deep cleaning they pay only minimum wage.Have to wait for long to get cleaning items which they are supposed to provide some days manage without it. Since they cannot find suitable staff for the role existing staff have to cover shifts. Staff turnover is ludicrous People leave within a week.
Pros
Early morning hours
Cons
Hours are changed frequently, change of staff all the time, poor pay, no uniforms or other facilities

People are changing every week, they sacked people without any exploration. Dont pay your salary. Speak about you behind your back ( managers). This is unprofessional. Once you are coming to work, on the site are the new cleaner who are not letting you. Try to ask me work 7/24,no off days. Said that will pay more than mimum, but paid the same minimum. No cover staff has

Had me working 21 days straight, then another 14 after 1 days rest. Had to beg for a day off when I got sick from being overworked. Disgusting management, talk about other employees behind their back, racism within management, they will turn on you very quickly for no reason. Unprofessional to the point it almost got physical with another employee! The job itself was good, really enjoyed the work as it's what I do but everyone is entitled to a day off at some point.

Worked for spectrum started off in the cinema that was good great team to work with then i was made supervisor and moved to a different site and given more hours. Loved my managers couldnt of asked for better and never had a problem with wages. I would 100% work for these guys again if the rite hours come along. I left to try something new but wish id have stayed.

Recently had my team have seen loads of dodge reviews on here from ex members of staff who were fired. Its cleaning couple hours in the morning, make the place clean don't steal or forge timesheets and you'll get along fine. I've had two managers over the last two years and got on fine with both, i help cover when someones sick and they do same for me.
Pros
Simple
Cons
Its cleaning

Ive worked for spectrum for 2 years. I had a problem with my hourly rate pay when i first started but that was sorted by the third month and i got all the money back. Sometimes if they cant get a cover ur forced to do it all yourself but then u get paid that other persons wage aswell so cant really complain for the extra money. Decent managers abit clueless at times but theyre alright.
Pros
extra hours
Cons
cleaning

Difficult to complete what is asked of you in the time restraints. The managerial Hierarchy made it difficult to speak to someone about important matters as you usually only have contact with a supervisor who will just pass information on. Toxic work environment. This employer has made me very wary of future employers. the best part of the job was being left on your own to work. failed to pay my wages multiple times, something that has happend with other employees too.
Pros
day to day work fairly relaxing.
Cons
I don't trust the employer.

Worked for this company for 8 weeks at the light cinema in Wisbech prob one of the worst company’s I have ever worked for ! £7.83 hr to break your back cleaning and having the most miserable supervisor who had nothing nice to say to anyone . They promise you 4-5 days a week which is a pack of lies would not recommend anyone to work for this company stay well clear !!!!!!
