    has been an enjoyable one. has its ups and downs. needs improvement

    Pcv Driver (Current Employee) Middlesbrough, England (UK)

    Prosmeeting different members of the public, job security, love driving. being out and about rather then stuck in doors.

    Conshave no social life. find it hard to balance work life and family life. feel you dont have much support from management, you are just a number to them. no job safety (meaning you are left on your own, if you encounter someone violent there are no inspectors about in the evening to help you out.

    Advice to Senior Managementthink should get more benefits when working weekends and bank holidays. would like to be appriciated more. would like more training so if wish to pursue into management would have neccesary experience for the role.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good opportunities for people willing to work hard only in the UK

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCEO is very good
    Management leads by example

    ConsNot a lot of training
    In the UK there is meritocracy, in other countries not at all

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of some useless senior managers who are only interested in the title and their position and sponsoring their friends rather than really focusing on what the right thing for the company is

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    • Career Opportunities

    ConsShiftwork, politics within company, bad management in some cases
