    I worked at Certas Energy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They offer paid holiday time

    Cons

    They don't seem to care about your personal circumstances, aways pulling you up for small things, general treatment of their staff is bad, always asked to do overtime or stay behind for a bit to help out unpaid. Always called in on your holidays, they can't seem to take no for an answer they keep asking till you say yes and if you don't they will remind you who handle your holiday requests to indicate that they... won't give you any of your requested time off

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that yous have enough staff to cover all shifts. Ease up on small things that don't make a difference to the customer's experience or the companies bottom line. Have better punishments for people that don't do their fair share. Have the right number of staff working when it's known that a shift will be busy.

    I have been working at Certas Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really nice people once you get to know everyone, does make you want to stay. Quite relaxed environment. Nice office. Monday to Friday, Good benefits e.g. pension, physio

    Cons

    Bonus I a little bit or miss and there’s not much you can really do about it when a lot of customers are contracted... progression isn’t the easiest route unless your face really fits. Can get monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more the people are worth it and if they aren’t you will get the right people with the right wages. Get a planned career path and a real structure with everyone following suit. Stick to one base strategy, I know change is good but too much is bad as there lacks continuity.
