No company culture, working machine

Senior management - don’t listen or want to improve current processes. Don’t waste your time in a company that doesn’t value staffs properly. Company doesn’t have culture, departments don’t have communication.

Clean, organised worksite with table tennis table

Most of the management is kind and friendly. It's a very inclusive workplace. A very friendly team. Hours can vary and are not always set. The system in which they use is easy to learn and use.

encourage employees with freebies of their products from time to time

they should consider their previous employees to retain tor a new role rather than bringing new contractors for the role. too much dependent on outside consultants for hiring

It has its pro's and con's

Management is decent but if you are going through agencies then I highly recommend going with randstad instead of going with Manpower. Highly unfair when it comes to shift offers.

Enjoyed the team and the successes achieved

I worked from entry level storeperson to site manager. Wages where always higher than award and when I progressed to salary, it was always fair to position. Fast paced environment, high level of compliance, entrenched safety culture and improving wellbeing focus.

Office Managenent not good

I enjoyed my time there work colleagues most great. Middle management unfriendly rude uncomfortable at times. One or two people spoil the office environment but higher management does nothing.

Bad Management

They can ask employees to come any time they want and ask to finish shift any time. Initially they say 8 hours shift for whole week, then almost every day they will ask you to finish after 3-4 hours. And you will not get all 5 days a week. Hardly 2-3 days. Its simply waste of time working here. They simply don't care about employees. The most selfish management I've ever seen.

Pros

No work hours, bad management, no time management

Cons

Nothing good

Fun place to work, with great poeple

Great people, easy work, and pushed to achieve good results for a reward. Fun and laughter always to be had. Never a dull moment, and good to be on your feet and moving around. A relaxed atmosphere is the general feeling of the job.

always a new challenge

Every day presented a different challenge. Largely top down driven, so little influence from bottom up. Hard work but rewarding. Autonomous environment. Job done not hours worked, flexibility in time.
