I really enjoyed working for this company. Unfortunately it was only for maternity cover so had to move on. While I was there I was treated as one of the team and have remained friends with all the girls.
Management very approachable and fair.
Pros
Lots
Cons
Doesn't operate flexi time, fixed start and finish

It is worst company I worked for, as a plant operator you on your feets for 12 hours pushing dirty bins covered with sh#t. The worst part when you start unloading trailers where you will be touching this s#it with a huge chance to grab a dirty needle and get sick. I wish I would know that erlier so I would never start working there.

Terrible place and terrible management
What they tell you to do is not how they want you to do

You can’t win there

They make up the rules as you go along

Paperwork is always wrong even if you do it how they want you to do it

They will pick on you constantly if your face doesn’t fit sand give you a hard life

Too many mini iam managers there shouting down at you

Terrible working conditions they have you unloading wagons of hospital waste bins then u have to push them 50+ meters across a floor that's slanted all different directions and full of big pot holes so its sometimes extremely difficult to get the bins where you want them to go and there not light either you need to push 4+ 100kg bins at one time just so you can keep up with the wagon driver the shifts are soul draining 12 hours at minimum wage

I was a class 2 driver , I liked the early starts as did mean you could go home early if your lucky, Like I saw in a previous comment, The smell at some of these places is horrific, even more when dead animals have been sitting in a locked, unvented container for a week, That was me out,

To be honest, its not the worst job I've ever had, yeah its dirty and dusty at times with a lot of heavy lifting but generally (at my old depot) were pretty well planned to be back on your hours .

My main problem was the way that management moved heaven and earth to cover up one particular manager's failings, whatever this manager did, no matter how much they screwed up higher management protected them, because this one manager was brought in against a lot of disapproval from the previous upper echelons .


Couldn't fault the lads you work with, all up against it same as me

Your day can start between 0430 and 0800 and can/will change depending on how the manager wants to bend you over. Graft like a dog dragging bags around buildings. Up and down stairs in and out of lifts-if they work.
Should be advertised as labourer / mechanic / mug.

Wagons are old and machinary is over used and under maintained.

Gaffers know who the idol are and leave them alone. Lads that graft get rewarded with more work. There is no interest in yiur welfare as long as the jobs are completed.

Only good thing is they take on new drivers and getting experience getting the wagons in bad side streets.

Lads are good coz everyond is treated with the same contempt
Pros
Get to reveiw all your bad mistakes that led you there
Cons
There isnt enough room in this box

Advertised as a class 2 driving job, the maximum driving time you will get in 11 hours is 4 hours if your lucky and is considered a very easy day.
Average driving time is about two hours a day. The other 8-9 hours will be spent walking through buildings collecting heavy bags of paper up and down stairs etc.

Many people going on sick due to work related injuries. Many people getting lower back injuries despite constant training on manual handling. Extremely high turnover of staff. Management an absolute joke.
Pros
Free banana 4 day week
Cons
Shifts too long for the work that is required

Management is terrible, people seem to get promoted based on if they are liked by the hiring manager, regardless of whether they would be best at the job. No staff moral, high staff turnover due to people being treated so poorly by the managers and team leaders. Stay clear. Customers suffering and unhappy due to the staff not wanting to be there. I saw many staff being reduced to tears during my time there.
Pros
Clean toilets
Cons
Everything else

Pros

Cons
Poorly run Transport dept + your face had to fit.

Days can vary from home early to a very long day.
I have learned a lot about different types of waste and needs of customers ie: nhs.

Management are helpful.

The hardest part of the job would be the demands can change constantly.

Job satisfaction is a plus.
Cons
Long hours

the HR team isn't working at all at that company.

there are not real contracts and they are over monitoring people when they are in the office. Also they don't offer development and training opportunities.

Going through organisational change quite badly. The organisation needs more focus and to harness the efforts of some great team members. It will take a while for the global approach to show any benefits.

The atmosphere they create is very enjoyable, the team efficacy is good and on the whole the managing team are incredibly personable. the only downside is the high number of temps due to the nature of their work. Not that temps in themselves are a problem but with a high turnover of staff building relations can be difficult especially if the temps are in managerial positions.
