I worked at OCS Group full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Minimum entry for work, no formal qualifications are needed to apply as a stock audit controller. This allows people from all different walks of life to apply without having to have certain requirements.

Cons

The positions were advertised as being 16 odd hours part time. What they didn't mention is that was for a single shift. The average shift length is around 12 - 18 hours. Work can be unpredictable as well, you may not be given regular shifts.

Advice to Management

More honest job advertisment is needed, with regular work for employees, instead of them not being given shifts after the first 5 trials shifts.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at OCS Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large national company with offices all over UK

    Cons

    Over populated with management - under populated with administration
    hell-bent on 'centralisation' at present - give it 5 years and they may well go back the other way if there is anything left then

    Advice to Management

    Management need to consider the consequences of centralisation - customers will leave if they have no-one to make personal contact with on a more local basis


  2. "Enjoyed Working... was a learning environment!"
