Excellent opportunity to problem solve and dive into a project that had been causing issues, great job satisfaction. Had flexibility to be able to explore viable strategy to fix ongoing issues.

Team is great to work with, everyone is easy to get on with. Management approachable and consistent support from them and the team. Pay decent but opertunities to earn more depending on performance. After you complete probation would be easy to move within the company

Do not like working here, you sign a contract that basically signs your life over. They manipulate you into doing your job and your managers because the whole place is understaffed and underpaid. The wages are shocking and you can never book your holidays as only 2 people are allowed off a day out of a team of 25. Everything they do is to squeeze every ounce of life out of you. They claim to care a lot about their employees. All their care about is making as much money as possible. I make them thousands of euros a week and I get paid less than a living wage. I can barely even afford rent. If you can find absolutely anything better than this dump, take it.
Pros
Flexi time. 25 holiday days a year.
Cons
Poor pay, poor management.

A typical day at Aviva is taking calls, processing information, dealing with customers, and making decisions. It's a fun office to work in. Everyone is really friendly and supportive. We really try to help our customers and we make decisions as fairly as possible. There seems to be a lot of room to grow and they paid for me to get qualifications. Sometimes the job is really draining because you'll be dealing with very stressful situations and you may have to make some tough calls but we're encouraged to take our time and to seek support when we need it.
Pros
Flexi time, colleagues, training, support network
Cons
Pay

The hardest part of the job would probably be when half time kicks in as there is a rush of people wanting to get food, so everything has to be done quick and efficiently so the queue can flow.

A typical day in work... there was no such thing. Every day was different. You met clients, you were part of management reviews. Work closely with your team. The opportunities were endless. Projects, travel for work.

Staff were friendly, hard working people.


Hardest part was the variety of work you were involved in.


Most enjoyable = all the opportunities afforded to you. You got what you put into this job.
Pros
Opportunities
Cons
Commuting

Great place to work but currently not offering full time contracts.
The flexi time is very handy for days off.

Benefits are okay but unless you have a longer contract you won't be able to avail of them.
Pros
Flexi Time
Cons
Contract basis
