It's hard to like your employer, but co-workers are great.
Pros: great co-workers, strong work ethic.
Cons: long hours, working weekends and bank holidays. employer does not care for employee's wellbeing at workplace.
Work at the airport starts 4AM, the latest possible finish 11PM. Working 10,5h shifts 3 days on, 3 days off with a one unpaid 45 min break. Basic pay for new starters despite working unsocial hours, weekends, bank holidays. Employer contributes just the minimum required 1% to your pension. After 5 years of work you get max 22 days of holiday (which is really only 18 days, as the employer's definition of a workday is 7,25h, while your real paid day of work is 9,25h). Company's uniform provided. Company is undergoing constant change, so you need to adapt quickly to new proceedures and to a fact that change does not necessairly mean improvement. It is more of a trial and error aproach. They require cleaning of the office from you (their interpretation of "keeping the workplace tidy" in your contract). Only water is provided (the minimum required by the law) so workers need to buy their own tea and coffee despite working from 4AM. On the plus side co-workers are an excellent and positive bunch of people!
