Terrible Place Terrible People
Landfill Worker (Former Employee) –  Greater Manchester10 September 2018
If your thinking of working for this company DON'T - run mile in the opposite direction.

The majority of the management are children and act like it too, if your over 35 don't think of getting promoted because it isn't going to happen.

Most people are too busy sticking knifes into each others backs to actually do a job properly.
Pros
Clocking Off
Cons

Recyling fridges
wharehouse operative (Former Employee) –  St Helens20 November 2017
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.

Horrible Place
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester30 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.
