    Pros

    No weekend work, good pension, sick pay, Holiday pay, a/c in Van's.

    Cons

    Loads... in my interview they promised the earth and showed it was a great place to work and have a great work life balance. Load of rubbish, Working hours are anything from 11-15 hour days. If you have a family you will not see them during the week. Most days starting at 6-6.30am and finishing between 6 - 9pm. You have to hit a average call fire target of 18 calls a day with a minimum of 12 buying. This is great if you have them in one area. But drive time and loading time is what slows you down. The management are clueless about locations on where you are travelling to and from and their suggestions come across as a must do. Management are more concerned about targets and not their employees. You get a little voucher reward for hitting targets which is all well and good but doesn't reflect the hours you put in. If you're ever off sick even once it's a massive problem to them, you will be pestered daily and not nicely more like harassment, then when you return to work you will receive emotional blackmail from your manager about going sick. When you have a management work with day they will only work on days that means they can get home early, if there is a customer problem the management will not ask "in short" your version of events and what is the problem, they choose a customer over employee... so God help you if you have any awkward customers or change a means of delivery to help them as things get very twisted.

    Advice to Management

    Care for the RSRs that are working long hours and offer to support them by going out with them on the days they are finishing late and actually support them if they are having problems with what ever it is that's troubling them and work with a problem customer and the employee to make sure the process is smooth. Not do a he said she said where it gets very twisted and far from the truth.
