      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at phs Group

      Pros

      Employees are treated very well

      Cons

      Monthly pay and start time

      Advice to Management

      There's a lot of good people employed by yourselves. Job done let them finish work. I regret leaving but I was promised better than I got in my pay slip. You get up at 4am to complete your route you should be paid for the commitment of it. Can't fault the way it's professionally run as a business. Can I come back ??????

      Pros

      -Taking the work van home meant there was no commute

      Cons

      - Pay was very low, not much higher than minimum wage. - Pay was always incorrect, any amendments necessary would be added to next month (rather than bacs) which itself would be incorrect. - None existent HR/Payroll support. - No management structure at branch level - Lack of instructions or directions, if you used initiative and it didn't work out well you were ridiculed, if you used initiative and it worked...

      Advice to Management

      The branch I worked at was a disaster it would require completely re-organising.

      Pros

      The number one in the UK market place, yet manages to retain a true family feel. A great team who care about customers and colleagues in equal measure

      Cons

      We need to ensure our customers understand the breadth of services and capabilities we offer.... We are everywhere and offer a number of award winning services outside of our well known hygiene business

      I have been working at phs Group full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      None! The only good point is that due to awful staff & customer retention they have to make radical changes to survive in the medium/long term future

      Cons

      Service Delivery is non existent. Staff are treated appallingly - wages/benefits are poor in comparison to other companies. Customers are ignored and often lied to with a total lack of transparency over contract terms, pricing structure (huge variances across the same product lines) & service delivery (or lack of) Cliquey old boys club approach to management and interdepartmental relations.

      Advice to Management

      You’re clearly in the wrong job if you think things are heading in the right direction. It’s long overdue for you to conduct a review of your senior teams competencies and behaviours, try looking at some anonymous 360 feedback from direct reports, customers and other departments who interact with them. It may be valuable for you to conduct more in depth exit interviews to capture feedback and stop the avalanche of...

      Pros

      Working for phs has opened my eyes to what the company is about! - it does a lot more than sanitary bin ! Team & manager are supportive - always willing to help you when they can.
