Good people on site and direct supervisors but actual LATA are horrible.
Radiological Control Technician (Former Employee), Paducah, KY – June 21, 2012
The Good: The everyday work was good mostly because of the people are social and easy going for the most part. I wish it would have lasted longer.
The Bad: LATA is the company that bought the contract and yes they did walk in to a bad time when gov't is cutting funding BUT if they wouldn't have mismanaged the funds so badly, the better part of us would – more... still be working. Like almost every other company the upper management takes the most and the people doing all the work are cut. Also, the union needs to dissolve. – less
Warehouse Apprentice (Former Employee), Cannock, ENG – September 29, 2014
My main duties included general housekeeping and time keeping. I was taught my rights and responsibilities as an employee and rights and responsibilities for employers, in a work place. I learnt how to correctly pack, label stock into boxes and how to shrink wrap and band boxes correctly and safely onto a pallet, as well as correctly and safely operate – more... a pump truck. I got a health and safety certificate. I worked as part of a team and on my own. – less
Warehouse operative (Former Employee), Cannock – April 24, 2014
During my apprenticeship at Lata, I learned a lot about warehousing and customer relations. I learned to work well on my own and as part of a team. I enjoyed meeting new friends whilst on the job that I still keep in touch with to this day.
Logistics apprenticeship training academy (Former Employee), Brislington – January 7, 2014
We had no staff room and were not allowed to have running water in our staff room that we did have, we got paid £40 a week for a week with full days work, in the end the place got shut down due to failing the health and safety spec.
warehousing (Former Employee), dudley – May 24, 2013
Pros: good team work
Cons: not long enough breaks
i enjoy work alot an can get on with others around me really well. The best part of a job is when its busy because it makes you energetic an you will always be working to your dead lines. I dont really think there is an hard part of a job because i like a challenge in work.
