    They have steady work that keeps you busy. The work is not to hard. Working 12 hour days with 3 on 3 off

    Be more caring about your people

    Pros

    Not good to work for

    Cons

    Continental shifts, ask for change in shift u never get it unless ur a liar, no one listens to the staff, poor management, operators always get the blame for everything (even if it's not our fault) more and more duties we have to do so tiring when ur doing 12hrs

    Advice to Management

    Man up, communication between departments would be an advantage and get on with job don't blame other people for your mess

    Pros

    Staff try and work together in more and more difficult conditions, help each other where they can

    Cons

    Management think way forward is to bring in even more management from outside and get less staff to do more!

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your staff or you will end up closing the place down!

    I have been working at RPC Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    very hard to say anything positive about this site as 80% of the workforce is so demoralised from we know better management team with one bad decision after another.

    Cons

    not a good site to work for, with more being pushed on the staff, not interested in the staff and just want more out of them even though they are at breaking point.

    Advice to Management

    take a long hard look at yourselves, because all of you are the problem.
