I worked for viridor for 10 years,I worked very hard,very long hours,I never had an unauthorised day off,Never sick,I observed all health and safety rules, And I had no disciplinarys After 10 years,I had progressed NO WHERE.I had a good positive attitude,was very very good at my job. But I saw other members of staff progress upwards in the company, HOW ? by SUCKING UP!! If you are prepared to suck up to viridor management,go drinking with them after work,go to their parties,tell them how wonderful they are,then you will go far !! But dont expect to progress in the company by working hard,because you ,like me ,will go no where, The company is split in 2 halves,Management ,and the Management suckers,and then the people who actually do the work, They pay a pittance,because there is no money, Guess what !! They have decided to paint all their blue lorries and equiptment green,hundreds of lorries and plant,green uniforms,new headed note paper, errrm how much will that cost !! Viridor do have very extensive health and safety training,It is designed to keep employees safe at work,they care ....DO THEY ? The reason for all the training is yes to keep staff safe...BUT if you ever have an accident or incident working for viridor,IT WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR FAULT !!!!! Viridor will say you have been trained ...YOUR FAULT !!

employee; if your face fits great,if your into kissing backsides you'll go as far as they want you to,transport manager who doesn't know the basics i.e. thinks the dvla deals with o licensing (and not traffic commissioner) and doesn't know the height of unmarked bridges

This job is difficult in the sense that when moving fridges you are working with heavy loads and you should be able to take your time and follow the lifting rules that would be shown in the induction to work safely and productively.

Years of SAP development work and Business Partner expense wasted due to management's decision to shelve programme after 50m spent on training, documentation, cutover analysis and failed project partnership with Cap-Gemini
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 20 April 2017
Very busy office phones ring off the hook, never get any help or breaks. Constantly under staffed and over worked. The people are horrible and two faced. No praise or recognition is ever given. So glad I got out. WOULD NOT ADVISE ANYONE TO WORK IN THIS OFFICE !!
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 30 March 2017
The workload is immense and no help is given. People use to pass their work off to others and then they take all the gratitude. Never get any recognition and showing any willingness to progress is squashed. The people in the office were very unfriendly. Would avoid this place at all costs. Gllad I got out when I did.
Bin lorry driver at bargeddie for 3 years,co workers in general fine,management from top to bottom in the depot are very poor.too many instances to go into detain,certain ones just picking up wages and get a kick out of talking down to the workers. Should have left sooner..
drivers mate (Former Employee) – Bolton – 3 November 2016
a typical day for me at work would usually involve the unloading of a full container of televisions or refrigerators which if first thing in the morning this was the case was extremely physically demanding.
the majority of my co-workers where all easy to get along with but i get along with anyone anyhow.
