Independent work, Clear tasks.
Cleaner (Former Employee), Welwyn Garden City, ENGSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: good communication, good pay.
Cons: lack of hours
Learned a great deal about time management and working independently, as I had to be there before the shop had opened to clean. The hardest part of the job was probably the short hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was how clear the company's exceptions were. I typical day included completing tasks , such as making sure the shop floor is clean, – more... the mirrors are clean and also that the hazard signs are clearly displayed. – less

Helpdesk Administrator (Former Employee), Newcastle upon Tyne, ENGSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: friendly co workers, honest work
Cons: was the only non smoker so covered lots of breaks
A decent company to work for, only met one cowbag the whole time I was there.
The clients could be pretty demanding and a bit stupid but in fairness they were civil servants so we knew what we were getting.

cleaner (Former Employee), Durham, ENGAugust 5, 2014
Pros: some fun
Cons: late nights
I worked in Supermarket cleaning. All other employees were kids. All interested in was smoking dope. Reported to management but I was the one that was dismissed for whistle blowing. To be honest Sainsburys did nothing either.

cleaner (Current Employee), Sunderland, ENGJuly 8, 2014
A typical day at Sainsbury's working as a cleaner is sometimes hard work but I enjoy the challenge.I have to make sure the full store inside and outside is kept clean and tidy at all times. Really the hardest part of the job is when the store is busy and your trying to keep everything clean but then you get a call out to go and clean a spillage up which – more... could be anything falling off the shelves to something else. The most enjoyable part of the job is the staff in there are really friendly also any big issues I have I can rely on advice or help from my manager. – less

Pros: short hours
Cons: average pay, no co-workers
Constantly on your own cleaning a betting office, not much communication between management and no co-workers to speak of. The hardest part of the job was being alone I cant honestly say there was any part of the job that was enjoyable

Poor management, dreadful cuture, little 'people' investment
PA (Former Employee), West MidlandsApril 19, 2014
Joining Interserve initially appeared to be a fantastic career opportunity. If only my due diligence would have uncovered the truth around the archaic and antiquated culture I was about to embark upon. From the moment of joining, I have done my up most to get out. The role that I perform, in most professional organisations is well respected & championed. – more... At Interserve however or should I say more specifically within IT at Interserve, an antiquated, command and control culture prevails. Lead by an individual who has no hesitation in practicing 'fear management'. Self development & continued professional up skilling requests are consistently denied, long hours are expected but never regarded. Reward & recognition is completely none existent and cultural norms in the work place such as team working, collaboration, fun at work and dynamism are ill regarded. I would genuinely recommend that anybody considering a role at Interserve, particularly within IT consider their options very carefully, if you're either 'female' or 'career driven'.

Whilst rates of pay are on par with market rates, clear gaps between male and female salaries exist. And any salary, no matter how good can not make up for basics such as an 'enjoyable work environment', 'approachable & supportive management', 'ongoing career development' and 'work life balance'. Should you value any of these things, then a career at Interserve within IT specifically, will not be for you. – less
