Terrible don't go there
This company holds no regards for loyal hard working committed employees.
A total disregard for people who are willing to go that extra mile.

I worked for Viridor for 15 years and was cast into the wilderness by a hostile bigoted management system.


Donyatt go there.

No concern for employee wellbeing
Horrendous company full of empire builders. Poor management with zero direction. No concern for employee wellbeing and truly treated as a number nothing more. Internal politics run the show here with no departments working together and everyone trying to be your boss. Run for the hills

Fantastic plant managed by people with no experience
Decent pay but strong stomach required. Totally disgusting job.New production manager started whom I knew from previous employment else where, no back ground check made, he bluffed the position as he was only a charge hand. Say they are big on safety but an HSE AUDIT ON LOLER AND PUWER COMBINED WITH AN OUT OF DATE DISCHARGE CONCENT IS S JOKE

Do not bother
management are a total waste of time, I wondered at times if they actually wanted to keep employees the way they are dealt with. They have a good written practices ,policies and procedures and terms but in reality it is ignored and a blind eye is turned when they want it and the chain of command are all in it together..Good luck

Stressful
Working at Viridor involves long working hours and was rewarding in the early years, but changes in the waste industry have made it an increasingly competitive market with a knock-on effect on available jobs.

Very poor.
Found the staff to be a bit on the brown nosing side of culture. Drivers good lads, but experienced a lot of back stabbing, especially when one felt threatened by my academic achievement. Pay is abysmal for a months pay.

Pay racist
They pay the English more than their Scottish counterparts even at management level - totally disgusting. Bullying also exists at management level, backroom services are seriously undermanned, still old school attitudes and disrespect. Systems and processes are outdated causing frustration throughout.

HArd working but easy going
I enjoyed my time there, made a few mates and the work is manual, so I enjoyed that aspect. It's 12 hour shifts but they often fly if you talk and work, breaks are good and it tends to be 4 on and 4 off which is great

Awful
The company is very badly run, the turn over of staff is silly and the amount of rubbish you sort for minimum wage is shocking. Avoid if you don’t like smelly work or starting at a 6 am till 6.30pm

The company as a whole seems only interested in maintaining its own image and gives very little thought to its staff ,slow to introduce a safe working environment ,wages and pay rises are also slow to meet the requirements of modern living ,the list goes on.
Pros

lack of advancement and long hours

Good place to work
Didnt have any problems working here. The only reason I left was an illness in the family and the commute time. Great bunch of lads driving the trucks and the managers are ok.

Recycling Operative
Great opportunity for me to gain experience within this field. I enjoyed my time at Viridor. The days were quite long, 12 hour days for 5 days and 1 day 8 hours.

No Job Security
Made redundant, no job security, 5 different managers in as many years and each comes in planning to change everything for the better and is quickly replaced by another guy full of new ideas. They then restructure and everyone’s jobs are on the line every 12 months or so.

Very good company
Excellent time at Viridor and would work for again, a very good manager who lets you get on with the job as long as you are doing your job satisfactorily.
Good colleagues but office staff very difficult to work with.
