Busy and supportive work place
The team and company were supportive, salary was average for the role these days and could be better. Great choices for company cars, life balance was a bit off balance some times as you have a lot of crm and contract work to do and that ends up being done once you’re home in the evening. That aside the culture is pretty positive at Rd with some good people there. I did leave along with some others because our new line manager was a bully and a liar out to cover his own flaws by taking it out on others. I do believe an HR case was raised later on so hopefully he’s not there anymore.
Culture, good support
Salary a bit low, balance sometimes a bit off
Pays the bills, just about.
If your face doesn’t fit the picture, don’t bother even trying here.
They’ll build you up with “there’s loads of opportunity – we like to promote from within” but in reality, it’s a dead end – unless of course you are able to butter people up and play happy families 24/7. Doesn’t matter if you have the right skill set or not.
Management likes to sit in a meeting room for 4+ hours laughing and then proceed to tell colleagues that they need to speed up and work harder. Very, very hypocritical.
management, opportunity, salary
All brakes is very strictly,generally low wage for most employees, lots of duty….everyone complain about something, they expect lots from you for £9.43 per hour.(agency and permanent w1),heavy boxes,small number…..
Good job but horrible people in the department
It started out well, the managers were not micro-managing, the training was specific and thorough, and I got in a very good place with my performance. However, the actual workplace culture soon showed its true colours, rapidly eroding my mental health and my position there. I have to admit it was one of the worst places to be in.
fantastic benefits, supporting managers, achievable targets
awful bullying and racist co-workers
Only care about calls not people, managers talk down to workers & are not treated well. Jobs are for friends and not for exoerience. There is a buddys club and if you are not part of that club.then you do mot move up the ladder, saw so many good experienced staff leave as if there face does not fit they cant move on. Even though they are experienced. Not a great place i am sorry to say.
