Cleaning Operative (permanent) - Full Time (Current Employee), Birmingham, ENGJanuary 20, 2016
Pros: Got to go home.
Cons: Hours went very slowly.
Typical day at work was waiting to start, being told what jobs we was on and helping customers. I learned nothing in this job. There was no training at all. The management was completely useless. Co workers were backstabbers. Hardest part about the job was working with my colleagues. The enjoyable part of the job was finishing.

Worst place I have worked
Cleaning operative (Former Employee), Birkenhead, ENGJanuary 4, 2016
Pros: None
Cons: Long hours poor management
This was the worst company I have ever worked for, the management was disgusting in their attitude toward workers there is no option to opt out of overtime it just gets expected of you and they would not give any time off unless it suited them also the Birkenhead management would make employees work 10+ hour shifts within 10 hours of each other I would advise anybody to stay away from this company

stressfull.
clesner (Former Employee), NottinghamshireNovember 7, 2015
Pros: when on holiday
Cons: the whole job
Worked in a retail store, cleaning in the mornings, some retail staff treated me badly, the manager was non supportive which caused alot of depression issues and I then terminated my contract through this. (July 2015) One week later I was phoned asking if i could cover a few days as they had no one to work , 3 months later the company still believe I work for them and still havent sent me my legal paperwork.(p.45 tax office are now being notified.)
Worse job I have ever had, and would never work for this company again, I still get news letters and pension scheme letters through my door. (Parents home address)
Holiday notification processes was shoddy from the year and half i was there my authorised holidays I had to pester my manager and the day before my holiday was due I would find if I could take it or not.

data protection: after moving home and going through the correct procedure instantly to change my address after 7 months of being in my new property my wage slips still went to my old address including all my personal details. The address changing forms yellow in colour was filled in while being with my line manager and taken away. Where did all my personal details go??

as you can see there has been alot gone off I could go on forever.

But this ISNT TO SHAM interserve, as a whole im sure they are actually some genuine nice people just not in the line I was working in.
(Nottingham)

I Do not recommend.

challenging but rewarding
Repairs supervising assistant (Former Employee), StratfordNovember 5, 2015
Pros: Discounts "Interserve Perks"
Cons: Short Lunch Break
It was challenging in all areas such as independent and team work because quickly and effectively we had to resolve any service failures and aim to solve and avoid any reoccurring issues.

Due to commitment from manager contributions and other on board teams we were able to identify our areas of strengths and weaknesses as a team. From this, we were able to collaborate a strong and friendly working environment which resulted in better outcomes for our customers.

Not a fun place to work
Health & Social Care Assessor (Former Employee), HomebasedOctober 26, 2015
Pros: Good benefits.
Cons: Not enough time to complete what is expected.
I felt there was an elament of bullying taking place (this is only my opinion).
The support I had in previouse companies was just not there.
