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 !!
You go home every day.
you have to go there every day.
