The management in noonans is like something you’d see in a ww2 documentary in how they act. They get joy out of being mean and going to them with a problem is like talking to the wall
Pros
Good money I suppose
Cons
No equipment to clean, people hide equipment

No proper training for what is a potentially dangerous job.No Hep c shots for many workers even though this is promised at the start. Holidays are "banned" from time to time, sometimes for months on end. Last year I had to take some of my summer holidays in November.Pervasive culture of disrespect (though some of the line managers are nice enough, it has to be said), and I've heard many truly shocking stories of bullying. Not a few of the line managers see talking to staff like they are misbehaving dogs as a as a good way to motivate, and this toward hard workers too. Just pure ignorance.The 12 day week they expect you to work is physically and psychologically draining. If they won't agree to a 5 day week, do not take the job.Do Not work here.
Pros
...co-workers
Cons
chaos

Everyone is out to blame everyone else here. Not even a smell of any teamwork. Definitely one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. So glad I have left them,

For as long as I worked, there was no system as to who does what and when. The amount of work you needed to do in the time that was given was way too much.I'd be almost running around trying to get things done in time. The official hours set in the contract was 16 per week yet I would always have too start working 10 min early and would finish working 10 or 15 min after the end of the shift which would add up to two or three extra hours per week which I did not get paid for.Stay well away from this company.
Pros
Conveniant location
Cons
Pay too low for the amount of work, unethical work environment

The hours are fine. There are issues like all jobs but over all the pay is good, double Bank Holidays. You are tasked with jobs and given the time to do it. The managers are helpful.
Pros

Terrible place for someone who has mental health issues. No proper traineing given, you get your training of other employees who are not trained to do so. Management feel it's ok to discuss/talk about employees business/health infront of other members of staff.
Pros
Its impossible to get fired because always short staff
Cons
No support for mental health. Youve to work 12 days in a row for 2 days off, regardless whats advertised. Management.

Good company,always paid on time never a problem. Don't judge reviews on one area. They're all over Ireland with different site managers. Never had a problem in the munster area. If you're willing to work, the hours are there. They supply you with a full uniform including safety shows and wet gear for outdoors. You're paid every forth night on time. BH paid and sunday supplement paid. No hassle with time off if needed or Holiday.
Pros
All good
Cons
shifts can be long

I worked for this company for two weeks, one week spent training and the second week in the office in Galway. The training was professional. The second week proved a disaster. The office under the current covid circumstances last month July was the size of a small box room, with no open window or protective screen. This was the problem: - No social distancing - Sitting either in the corner of the office or on the same desk as the business manager. - I was asked to leave the room every-time the someone came or the business manager had a meeting. Which was several times per day. (I understand privacy and respect it but any work I tried to do was interrupted) - I found it impossible to try and get some work done and when I did, I had to either be face to face on the same desk as my manager, or be in the corner as she wanted social distancing with a laptop on my knee with no neck support. It was like I was a problem and taking up space. - The one day I worked at the desk with the manager I was told the next day. That practicing unsafe office procedures was happening and that all touch points must at least be cleaned, I did as I was told , but I had no where else to do my work so How could I social distance? - On my last day I was so stressed with the whole situation as I had left another job to join the noonan team that I could not get all the work due to the conditions. The manager said ''Its all turned bad for you today, Im sending you for retraining''. This was the point of breaking and I walked out that door. The job would have worked if I was treated with some - more...

It's a good Company to work for. People are nice. They are very respectful. Contact is easy. Usually, they answer the same day. The manager is always available.

its not about what you know its about WHO you know...If you are not a friend of supervisor/site manager you will get less respect and more work to do than other staff...thats a discrimination actually..the staff turnover is very high and that speaks volumes :) you can be moved from site to site whenever they need you. just dont go there if you love yourself and dont want to be treated unfairly
Pros
none
Cons
rude supervisors and managers

Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Treat you unfairly and make you feel so small. Not once have I ever been made to cry by a manager/head office apart from this company, it’s absolutely shocking excuse of a company
Pros
Short shifts
Cons
Treats you unfairly
