    I have been working at OCS Group full-time

    Pros

    Really can't think of any.Is their ANY pros for working under ocs?

    Cons

    Not being paid right wages short every month holiday paid wrong rate if your lucky to get paid anything.no team working, managers promise everything under the sun but won't deliver anything.OCS have fingers in alot pies but yet isn't it funny how people don't have anything good to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get of your butt listen and take action on what your staff are telling you. Sort out the staff wages, After all you guys get paid right dont you?because your on a yearly salary not per hour. Try working on our money per month and how much staff are short paid each month do that for a period of time and see how you would feel and cope. Don't fob the staff off giving them the ocs talk which has been drummed in you head of how great ocs are and start to deliver.

    Pros

    Wasn’t here that long to see

    Cons

    Management to eager to take people on before paperwork setup.

    Advice to Management

    I was lead to believe all my paperwork had gone threw got told to hand in my notice at my old job did that and started, only to find out no paperwork had gone threw after working here 3 days so I decided to walk away as realised at this point I had been scammed by this company they got 4 days for free out of me as they have refused to pay me as needed additional paperwork which would cost me in the process to get. I’m glad I got out when I did as them 4 days could have turned to more days. Avoid at all cost.
