Fun and rewarding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working in Elis is like any other factory setting its quite boring and repetitive but the money is good and there is plenty of chances to progress to higher positions within the company.

Pros

Can have a good laugh

Cons

Inconsistent shift times often change every couple of weeks which can really mess up sleep patterns

Badly run company .

Can be Ok,it could be a good company but there are a lot of problems with job attendance by staff ..Management & supervisors incompetent at running company ,treat staff unfairly ,badly at times ,health & safety dodgy ,no proper facilities for staff .Machinery breaks down all the time & is never fixed properly .Other companies in Ireland motivate & encourage their staff which encourages job attendance but Elis is terrible ,a disgrace ,those in charge should hang their heads in shame .

Fast paced environment. Good ground for learning. Team leaders are good and cooperative. I left the job because of long distance travelling from Bray to Tallaght spending almost 4 hours in and out daily.

Pros

change of owners, no good for time.

When the company was kings laundry, almost everything was better. It just didn't have a nice rate. But with the sale in 2019 and Elis took over in 2020, things got bad. Terrible management, disorganized, delaying information:- Long waiting time to proceed with the work, on average 2 to 4 hours;- etc

Pros

Phone

Cons

Less rates

Very bad

Sometimes we are forced to work 10 days without a single day off.. Poor wages. Only 20 minute break so you can't even have a proper lunch. I had to work until 10pm on Sunday and then from 7am following morning.

Not good or bad

This job isn’t good or enjoyable if you do not have someone you know around or no music playing which they tell you to turn off more than half the time so majority of the time the job is stressful and hard to get through especially with short minute breaks and if your late coming back after break they threaten you which I found unlikely

Pros

Salary and 50 euro bonus if you attend all 5 days

Cons

Long hours short breaks

Not a good place to work

In house staff not given the opportunity to progress within the company even though you have the qualifications they preferred keeping you doing the dirty job for them and hiring somebody new and hand over the vacancies at the company

Very hard work

There are no raises, no bonuses, no overtime pay, terrible working hours, very hard work, the temperature inside is terribly high, dirty everywhere. Disrespectful of employees.

Terrible place

Generally operatives have poor money, no overtime allowances. Work is very hard and it is always done too little and badly. Terrible management, cannot talk to people, does not respect people who work in the company. You will never hear the word thank you or see better money than the minimum wage. There are no bonuses, no vhi discount, no bike to work scheme. The company is divided into better and worse people - GO is obviously worse. Waste of time, health and nerves for such a terrible company.

Cons

No words can describe how bad it is there
