    I have been working at Olleco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The responsibility of providing renewable energy through waste recovery makes the job worthwhile. You are contributing daily to improving waste. Attentive management who look to give employees opportunities. Great camaraderie amongst the operations team. Continuous improvement is encouraged and implemented within the company.

    Cons

    No cons, however if you aren't a self starter the job will be difficult.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Olleco in January-2016.

    Interview

    Had numerous phone calls for an interview should of known about the company's management from this really very annoying, just send an email confirmation people have jobs and its very awkward answering the phone about a job whilst in work, two interviewees asking questions from bits of paper printed from the internet?
    The manager couldn't be bothered to come and meet me,?
