Productive and fun workplace
Trainee Groundsworker (Former Employee), Glasgow, BishoppbriggsOctober 19, 2012
Pros: it was slowly fed to you the information needed so that you learnt more from the experience.
Cons: travelling
I enjoyed my time at carillion, I learned alot about the Groundswork trade like bricklaying, slabbing. monoblocking, concreting and leveling out land. I also gained my DOMs and water hygiene cards while working with Carillion. The hardest part of the job was mixing the concrete by hand as it required alot of manual labour. The most enjoyable parts were – more... looking at the finished jobs when they were done as it gave me a sense of pride in what I had achieved. – less

Kitchen Assistant (Current Employee), Sandhills School,OxfordAugust 2, 2012
I enjoy my job as I get to work with children and also have a good working relationship with my colleagues.
Unfortunately, I only work 10 hours per week and this is no longer suitable to my needs.
Hence why I now seek full time employment.

Apprentice Joiner (Current Employee), Sunderland.July 10, 2012
Cons: bad wage.
whilst in the training center although the training and the staff are very poorly equipped with qualifications good enough to train, it is still fun to work there. but once you get placed on a building site, you're treat as a laborer and have no communication with people from carillion who are suppose to communicate with you regularly. also the pay – more... is outrageous and you work 40 hours a week. – less
