Does Verastar give compassionate leave?

Pros

Hometime. Weekends. Bank Holidays. Pay day.

Cons

Toxic blame culture. Never seen so many stressed and unhappy people in one place. Treated like a child by managers who can't do the job themselves. No sick pay, no bereavement pay, poor wages . Horrible place.

Advice to Management

Close the business, the place is a shambles.

No sick pay, no bereavement pay, poor wages .

Why do Verastar employees quit?

Pros

The days we were allowed dish clothes

Cons

I left this company under constructive dismissal after almost 4 years service. I have Tourette’s. Just to sum up in a nut shell what this company is actually like.... I went to OH in December 2016 and they recommended a DSE. I chased over & over again and received this a week before I left the company in February 2019! The excuse they used..... we have been in back log. This is just a tiny fraction of what goes on at this company. I could write for days! I am astonished that this company are winning awards.... I was asked by senior management to make animal noises for there entertainment despite my disability being involuntary. My mental and physical health suffered working for this company. No sick pay & then get penalised on bonus for being off sick.

Advice to Management

HR don’t bother with the please contact us it’s confidential and we’re concerned - been there done that. It’s not confidential, you are not concerned. I have all the paperwork to back that up.
