It’s not a bad place to work, the money’s decent and the commission can be very good too. That is if you hit your target, which can be hard. No matter how hard you try and persuade and give great deals to the pharmacies they simply do not and will not purchase from you, including pharmacies that do not want to be contacted. They make you feel you are not doing your best even when you are trying so very hard.
Pros
Pay, Commission, Breaks
Cons
Pressure

With being for alliance for nearly 3 years unfortunately I am never going to get this time back. The work itself is ok but it is like working with a bunch of cavemen who have no idea how to run a business. In fact I am insulting cavemen comparing them to management at this place. If you feel you need to be mentally unstable, drive yourself to drink, then definitely apply here. The favouritism here is unbelievable and unless the face fits you will never progress at all. I've seen monkeys in a zoo with better leadership skills than the team leaders they have at alliance healthcare. Avoid at all costs!

Honestly only apply if your desperate for work. It seemed like a decent work place until I started. Great if you fit but if management don’t like you they’ll make your life hard. Good location for travelling to work is the only good thing

Pros

First of all the transport manager has never been out on a run and he has no clue what he’s doing and you get dropped quicker than your hired with no notice or reason. So stressful it’s unbelievable, your always to blame for everything and you get treated so unfairly. I urge everyone to stay away, this company made me depressed and not want to get another job. The only decent people there are other drivers. Apart from that your on your own. No training, your expected to go out on your own with a van full and expected not to make any mistakes. Shambles
Pros
Toilets were clean.
Cons
Everything probable literally.

I worked for this company for 12 years but for the last 6 years it's been slowly sinking. The management literally have no idea about man management and no idea what's going on at thier outbased links. If you like to kiss the boss you will be fine but don't expect any respect for doing a good job. The management constantly try to discipline people for anything they can find, they make everyone feel undervalued and moral is very low. Most of the driver are excellent, luckily for the management team, because if it was left to them the place would go under in a week.
Pros
None
Cons
Rubbish management.

Where do I start my day should start at 7am but need to arrive earlier to park my van in it’s designated space (because stock is in the way) unload empty bins from night before then start to do a porters job (no extra money) by splitting pallets down of stock and placing it at the rear of each van not just mine some 9 or 10 vans in all then scan everything onto your van in order of delivery then off you go out on the road the lighfoot system monitors your driving you may get a phone call telling you to slow down great if you didn’t have so much work to deliver all being well back by 1pm lunch till 2pm then repeat you will find that your going out to the same customers this time you may only have a tube of cream in a bin for them not anything urgent which in our opinion is what it should be urgent orders only the truck that brings your pm work down to you is not allowed to leave the depot until management say so they sometimes make it late waiting for 1 bin which in turn makes everyone late I could go on and on but do yourself a favour don’t leave a decent job to come here you will REGRET IT big time

LACK / POOR TRAINING then they make you work hard and put a-lot of unnecessary pressure on you. EXCESSIVE MICRO-MANAGING standing behind your back while on the phone to a customer. Always asking patronising questions to make you feel like you cant do your job. PROBATION - Alliance healthcare does not VALUE their employees. They purposely keep you on probation (for as long as 1year) - so they can get rid of you easily and not PAY BONUS. FAVOURITiSM - Certain Staff members are treated special. PAY - not worth it.
Pros
Free Coffee and experience
Cons
Poor training / No career growth or opportunity for promotion.

As a driver you will be introduced to the wonderful piece of equipment that is called light foot, it is monitored by a desk jockey who monitors your cornering, acceleration, braking and speed. If you are seen to be braking any of the above you will then be subjected to a full morning with a delightful individual sat beside you monitoring your actions. Apparently the system is an aide and not for disciplinary action, don’t kid yourself and don’t rely on the union (USDAW) to back you up as their all friends with management. Was an outstanding place to work now i wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re submissive and lack self esteem.
Pros
Sunday off

No consultation for major area change. Manager very difficult to get hold of. Problem solving non existent unless it's business, personal issues ignored. Blame culture in my team.

Whilst the owners of AH and Boots languish on their millionaire's yacht in Monaco bought from profits made from the NHS, they seem to spend most of their time looking for ways to cut costs. This usually means making redundancies and cutting benefits for staff and making them work harder and for longer hours with no support.
Pros
Local. High salary and bonuses (for Senior management)
Cons
Understaffed, antiquated systems, stressful, bullying culture, male-dominated.
