    I have been working at BCA full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work for them. Stay well away

    Cons

    Where do we start. Paying staff different amounts of money for doing inspections for them ie £5.00,£8.00 and £10.00. Not paying self employed drivers their travel money. Telling them that earning over £80.00 per day is enough for them. So they refuse to pay any travel. They have been in the Sunday papers just 2 weeks ago. And soon on tv because of the way they operate BCA. Staff are treated badly and promised... better money etc. Which never happens. Very high turn over of staff. Interview 30 people, after 3 weeks maybe 1 person will stay. Self employed drivers are really employed by BCA but BCA are at the moment getting away with not paying holidays, travel etc. Waiting on the Non conformance telephone line for over TWO hours. Its a complete joke. Planning is terrible. The waste of money BCA waste is crazy. Most of the Management are not qualified and just got their jobs through their friends in BCA. Alot of bullying goes on.

    Advice to Management

    BCA do not care about anyone. Its aĺl about their profit. About time the CEOs / Management came and visits the hubs for a week or so. And see what is really happening.
