Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Interviews and training is on going. They just need well trained individuals who are understanding in the managerial role. They need avoid favoritism when it comes to treating conflicts amongst colleagues.

Poorly managed.

They struggle with finding and keeping quality staff hence the turn over. The pay is the bare minimum wage. I was a supervisor and the pay considering my responsibility was an absolute disgrace

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Management. Pay

Pros

Rethink before applying with Activ Foundation.

Favoritism: Management and Team Leaders will argue that this doesn't occur but, it is rampant throughout both NOR and SOR.Lack of loyalty to permanent staff.There are so many ongoing problems throughout Activ and it just doesn't happen SOR but NOR is just as bad. I would encourage others to apply elsewhere!!!

Pros

Supporting the customers is wonderful.

Cons

Not a lot of support from the team leaders unless they like you.

Interesting and fulfiling role

Busy working space in a multi-tasking environment. Customer services and relations skills. Speaking in public. Organisational skills and time management. Good management team required and strong planning in place to support the role in Learning and Development. Teamwork and dedication for what you do required.Resources and experienced staff essential to meet customer requirements. Good Training programmes and support for the clients in their studies. Workload and time management difficult due to inadequate team numbers available to support Learning & Development staff. Meeting the Clients and Staff and seeing them succeed in their learning development.

Dealing with people.

Typical Day - driving a bus, Learned - life is difficult everywhere, Management - some times management does not know everything. Workplace - pretend you know everything, but actually you don't. Hardest part of job - Informing on people who have done wrong, even though they deserved it. Most enjoyable part of the job, Christmas parties.

Employees

Such a high turn over of staff and coordinators. Employees who do most of the work get left behind and sometimes so do the clients. Its very sad how you are left to exist with no contact. the company doesnt offer any variety to those who want to exceed in their career. when clients go away you are left stranded with no work. I've had nothing but a bad experience Working for Activ the last 3 years. Activ is one of the worst companies i've ever worked for.. At the end of the day its all about money and what they want. You get left behind. Employers don't care, so why should you.

Bad place to be at when capable of doing other jobs

Never really liked it here as they have underpaid us and never spoke to the employees about their behaviour towards others.The management here just isn't right as they are not strict enough on employees and the way they have been treated.

Pros

Free lunches on occasions

Cons

Low wages

Productive

Activ is great when you first start, they would give you anywhere from 30 to 70 hours a fortnight. Once you have been there for more the 7 months they cut your hours down if you arn't a permanent, to 0 to 20 hours a fortnight.

Pros

Meeting new People

Cons

Not getting enough hours
