Site Secretary (Former Employee), Cooling, ENGOctober 3, 2013
Pros: flexibility if i worked late, or left early, i could take time to make it up, or, leave earlier depending on the situation.
Cons: dealing with companies going into financial difficulties.
On entering the office, the first task was to switch on all computers, check emails, very importantly make the tea/coffee for everyone after my arrival. Morning meeting with Director to discuss emails, previous days business and pending business to be carried out that day and pass on to appropriate departments/contractors/engineers. Answering the telephone, – more... resolving queries, filing, diary management, catering for meetings, arranging flights/accommodation and general smooth running of the office.

I learned how to create various forms including Method Statements, Risk Assessments, liaise with Health and Safety to rectify problems on site. I also learned how differently each company carries out their own procedures.

I have to manage an office when management is not present, how to find new sub-contractors, new suppliers, caterers, booking flights and accommodation. Most importantly being able to adapt and learn new skills.

I have always enjoyed working with and for my co-workers, whether it be consulting for advice, or, asking for advice. There is no shame in asking.

The hardest part of of the job on occasions was language, as I do not speak Flemish and only a little French.

I have always be lucky in the fact that I have always enjoyed my jobs, as they have been varied and I have learned a lot from each one and been able to adapt myself.

I would welcome to opportunity for a new challenge and experience. – less

Awful
Finishing foreman (Former Employee), South coastAugust 5, 2013
Pros: found work
Cons: terrible communication, changed rates and lied about contract length
I don't like agencies or middlemen at the best of times but this lot are a joke. I have been in construction for 20 years, on all levels from carpenter, supervisor to site manager. They have absolutely no idea how the construction industry operates. Was on their books a week, this started off promising. I got offered 2 jobs in the first week, but at – more... a very low rate for a site supervisor. The first one I drove 30 miles to site only to be told the recruitment consultant/salesman at Hays has not informed the client/ site manager I was going to be there ...so got sent home. Second job was supposed to be finishing a contract that had 3 months to go..., this was clearly not the case when I arrived ' contract was finishing that Friday (3 days time). Hays then decided to pay £2 an hour less than we agreed, they begrudgingly handed it over after 2 weeks. I have since asked them to remove my details from there system on 4 separate occasions, 6 weeks on I'm still getting texts/emails with job offers coming through. I will be glad when agencies like this are once again obsolete. – less

A typical day at work is the usual IT issues, learned most of IT support in the organisation. The Management changed frequently so mixed reactions. Co-workers have always been friendly and co-operative. No hard part - take it as it comes and resolve. Enjoying the job is the most enjoyable part.

Waste of time
Agency (Current Employee), bristolJune 13, 2013
Pros: there are none
Cons: lack of communication, have no idea what they are doing
I inform the agency on which days I can and cannot work and I always get phoned up to work on days which I have previously said I cannot. They do not record information down their end, so when you do inform them that you previously said you couldn't do that date, its your fault. The pay is really rubbish and so is the service. I am asked to worked in – more... areas where I cannot get to and every time I say no because of this, they seem surprised.
They say that they look for long time work for you, but this is also a lie, you can tell in their voice that they haven't bothered and are bulls**ting.
They haven't got a clue what they are doing. The worst of many agencies I have worked for. – less
