I worked at phs Group full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Supportive manager
Really friendly staff - especially at PHS Teacrate
Great on the job training
Work hours are fairly low, which helps with work life balance
Free lunch in the Caerphilly canteen
Car allowance / company car

Cons

Compensation and benefits are on the low side but improving
Role involved travelling (4 days in every 4 week period)
Occasional Sunday work in my specific role (2 hours)

Advice to Management

The role I did was a really great training role and my manager was really supportive and should be commended.
Pensions and other benefits such as maternity/paternity/sick are at the bare minimum by law. I know it would be expensive, but It might help display that you care about your employees by increasing some of these above the statutory minimum.
Encourage flexible working / working from home to help with employee satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    If you’re used to a sales environment it’s a good experience and career path to choose but you also have to have a passion for the products and drive in order to be able to sell washroom services as people don’t tend to change those very often.

    I have been working at phs Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Now is the best time ever to work at PHS.
    We have a new senior leadership team and there are now more opportunities than there were before to develop your career and enhance your professional skill set.
    I am really proud to represent the business and would encourage anyone who wants to contribute to achieving greatness to take a closer look at a career at PHS.

    Cons

    It's taken a while to get to this point so the journey has been a challenging one. The difference now is that we have a clear vision and plan to get to where we want to as a business and that provides hope and fuels determination and commitment to the goal.

    Advice to Management

    Considering the feedback from those at the cliff face of the business as change is being regarded and implemented. Our new senior leadership team have done just this and I truly believe that the new direction that PHS are taking is the best we have to date. I'm excited about the journey we are on and the vision to remain #1 is clear. The ability to be instrumental in this evolution is remarkable and I'm grateful for the opportunity to make a positive difference at the heart of the business .
