Terrible
Laboratory Analyst (Former Employee) –  Saltford20 August 2018
Absolutely terrible place to work, high workload with long hours and expected to maintain this workload on less than minimum staffing on multiple occasions. Pay is extremely poor given the unsociable weekday hours and weekend working.

Training allocated unfairly, experience counts for absolutely nothing, clear favourites from the management from day one and if you're not liked, you get nothing at all. When you complain, a blind eye gets turned.

Whatever you do, do not work here.

Awful
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Nailsea, Bristol3 January 2018
Staff are under valued, after a few months you are expected to train new members of staff who start on the same salary - no increments are given. Bonus scheme in place but most rated a 3 so you gain nothing. High work volumes, big demands on staff - management expect a lot. If your face fits you will fit in, if you dare to have an opinion you wont - the current managers like to control you like puppets!
There are currently a lot of overpaid people doing jobs they know nothing about, they rely on front line staff to do all the hard work!
Pros
Pension, Annual leave, xmas party
Cons
Bad management, high work volumes

Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Nailsea, Bristol18 August 2017
Awful place to work i was there for 4 days.

The job i was taken on for was not the the job i did.
They taught us a procedure back to front which was very very confusing and made no sense why they taught us in that way at all!!

The management are horrible.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to go for a job at this place.
