EMPLOYEE REVIEWS ABOUT WORKING FOR VERASTAR LTD, KINEX, UNICOM etc.

In the interest of balance it has to be noted that 12 (TWELVE) new glowing enthusiastic reviews about working for Kinex / Verastar were published on the Glassdoor employee review site on 31st July 2018.  All TWELVE new reviews appear to be from current ardent Verastar / Kinex employees extolling the joys of working for the company and who all decided to post their positive reviews on the same day.   As a result, the multiple negative employee reviews are now buried in previous pages.  See example of this on the Glassdoor site HERE
