    Default Persimmons

    Real-Debrid

    Through the grapevine I hear they are wanting houses boarded in 2 days complete.
    If they have 4 houses ready then they want 4 teams in the houses, so you no longer have a continuation of work on a site.
    2 days thats it, I presume it would be the same with the taping.

    Definitely glad I'm no longer on sites

    I've had my issues with Persimmons over the years an would gladly steer well clear of the housing sites so if they want a couple of tapers in a house rather than me on my own then I'm outta there.
    I've not been on the sites since November but may have to get back on in the next couple of weeks cos my own work is drying up but this would stop me phoning up.
    Prices are tight enough without having to split the money with someone else

    Was on a charles Church site today and they are the same as Pishsimmon, (part of the same group) they want all houses being worked in at the same time, kin nightmare. I was only there to do some coving but every house on the go was manned up. Its all over for site work

    You have to share the same workspace as other trades on the orders given from above? I work with other trades often on shopfit jobs but have real problems working in the same area as plumbers and leaving their fukcin pipes (rollerskates) on the floor. Bump up your insurance and get them to sign a disclaimer before you begin mate.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.
