    I worked at PGL (UK) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Making one or two close friends. Free uniform and food, of which food was very decent.

    Cons

    Very poor pay considering the hours worked. Management critisize unconstructively constantly therefore damaging self esteem and spoil any satisfaction you may get from which would otherwise be a very rewarding job. Poor staff sleeping arrangements. It is not a good idea to put a person who is on an earlier shift in a room with someone who gets up later. Inability to sleep properly at times due to inconsiderate coworkers being noisy in the corridor outside. Management laugh at you and mock you. Somewhat untrustworthy coworkers too. General unacceptable treatment of staff. My advice is just don't apply to work there. Very glad to have left and now have a much better job.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PGL (UK) (Liddington, South West England, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Turned up, offered job on qualifications within 2 mins. They hire people with no experience or trade background so be warned that your children will be staying in places that have been maintained by unqualified people
