High expectations, uncompetitive pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wages are below par, no benefits and a very stressful culture especially from managementGood colleagues in the team but apart from that, not a great company to work for. Disappointing time with the company due to their size and internal public relations and fliers, but they only care about profit, not staff

Pros

Good colleagues

Cons

Everything else

Avoid if you can

Worst company I ever worked for (i had few jobs at this stage of my life).Night shift team is treated like dogs from management, pay is low of the lowest for this kind of job with Responsibilities night shift team have.. Always something wrong with wages (something is not paid, wether its overtime or night shift allowance.. Every new worker that only started is not getting payed for months night shift allowance even tho the manager emailing relevant department after every wages, then eventually you get back paid after months with wages but you wont get it because tax man takes it..Have you ever heard of working nights shift starting at 21.30 but getting nite rate after 12pm? well for some reason if you work for Apleona thats what it is, from 9.30pm till 12pm its not nite 🤷🤦if i had to write the whole ridiculous things thats going on here I'd be here all nite, so for your own sake avoid this company..

It all depends which department you work in

I have read the reviews online and it depends on what department and who your line manager is. There are good and bad management in every corporation, the leaders who lead and make their team thrive or the boss who should be sent on a management course to be able to deal with people in a kind and nurturing way. ProsLocation, head office in south Dublin, nice area in Churchtown.Very nice people overallParking Nearby places for lunch Salary Fair within industryOngoing H & S online training for staffWealth of knowledge and expertise within the organisation with good support People are approachable. 24 hour service desk to support the teams Room for progression if desired Cons No life work balance. On call 24/7 for emergencies without additional pay. No mention of this at interview or contract stage. Overtime expected but not paid or rewarded with time in lieu. A high change over of staff, albeit there is a handful of employees who have been there for years. The Directors do not have a full insight of the management of the smaller departments. Firefighting and stressful role Suppliers should be paid in a timely manner Unfortunately due to staff shortages departments are faced with a back log of work and the existing staff are overloaded. Different policies in relation to hybroid working You need to hit the ground running as existing employees are too busy to provide training, this might differ in departments.

Workplace

Honestly for me it was the work enviroment. As i was working at MSD Swords through Apleona. They have a very high quality and high expectations from everyone. Rules wich everyone must follow.

Horrible toxic enviroment full of toxic people and managment

The worst company I have ever seen in my life. Night shift cleaners are on same salary as some of the dayshift staff. Dayshift kitchen staff are paid very bad as well. Managment treats the workers like dogs. Wrong money on payslips happening often. Dayshift managment shi*ting on nightshift workers all the time. Toxic enviroment with toxic people. The worst experience with job in my life. Would never recommend to anyone to join this toxic company.

Pros

None, you only get the blame for everything

Cons

Toxic enviroment with toxic managment

Stressful place to work

There was a lot of bulling with new staff by the superviser and some older members of staff. Superviser is on a power trip. The company is very clanish. I wouldn't recommend working for apelona.

Should be better

To be fair it not the wosrt but by no means it is great do not expect a payrise as they pay to much o/t to cleaning supervisors who just sit in canteen drinking tea and slaging people off would be better if they wasnt trying to blame everyone else for not doing there job

All people are nice to work with

I enjoy working with Apleona, always new challenges, great experience and nice environment. Meet new people every day . You have opportunities to move up the ladder to change positions in the company it self . Supplied with a van for work which is a big cost saver on the pocket . You are practically your own boss

Pros

New challenges

Cons

On call

Garbage of the lowest kind

If I was describe working for Apleona with absolute honest, God would condem me to helllll for eternity. Joke management, joke training and an even more hilarious salary. Stay clear if you enjoy happiness in the work place.
