Productive work place

Indeed featured review

It's a very good company to work for, all drivers and management staff are very friendly apart from 1 or 2.. Who speak to their drivers like pure dirt, And use very disgusting language towards drivers.Also work long hours with no break

Long hours

Good compnay but over worked

I started her on a permanent basis but kept me on longer. Good easy nice managment but expect a lot of drop offs and pick up per day. Constantly worried about speeding to get the job done in time and so you dint have to work 14 hours to get them all done on time...Driving licence cost a lot and takes time but no time to loose. If you honour your licence not the job for you

Pros

Vabs are well maintained

Cons

Over worked

Stressful and Unorganised.

Working at APC is something that ha. It has been really challenging to me because I really needed that job and i did not have possibility to change. Working at APC is really stressful depending on the job roles that you will have. Some people really work hard and care about the company standards and values but many people dont, on higher position especially.

Pros

Same pay for everyone

unorganised, stressful and low paid

Didn't enjoy my time working for this company at all. It seemed like there was no organisation going on at all, so it was very hard to get the work done, especially when it was the rush hour and it got really overwhelming. Plus it was hard when you were new staff yourself and there was new staff constantly starting work every week that was let to figure things out on their own. Many times the cages were blocked, so you didn't know where to put the parcels or there was no cage at all, so many people just dropped the stuff everywhere.There also was almost no teamwork present, little to none communication between staff. When new staff made mistakes, others would get angry, but in general it seemed like people weren't cooperative. On my end, there were some lovely teammates working that did communicate and let me know what's better and even gave tips, which was honestly one of the only positive things about working here.Overall, it wasn't clear what you were supposed to do each night and the work was all over the place, which I did expect because it's warehouse, however there were some quite times and it wasn't clear what you were supposed to do, so you looked for other things to do, because they expect you to be active all the time, but then they get angry when you're not in the spot they want you to be at. You really don't get paid enough for this mess.

Pros

some nice colleagues, can pick up some new skills, if you want to

Cons

poor management, no organisation, low pay, no communication, bad teamwork

Work mates save the job

No respect for the current pandemic crisis just get out and do the job at minimum wage. There is no moral within the staff due to the pressure put on by the management

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours no respect from management

Okay company

The office workers upstairs are grumpy and seem to be walking on eggshells and always ringing you up on phone every 5mins asking for updates, it gets really annoying. manager is very old fashioned and very strict but friendly if you stay on the right side of them. Other then that it isn't the worst company I've worked for.

Pros

Monday to Friday

Cons

Very fast paced

Stressful and racism

Racist management. They can kick you out if they see in danger themselves or they will distrory you mentally. Management and hr save themselves. They don't care about who works on shop floor. I worked in team where you don't have right to give your opinions because big boss think you might take over his /her job if you try to be smart with new ideas everyday. Hr only listen management not normal person. No feelings or emotions for anyone there. No money. Save your mental health.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Rude management

Not recommended

APC was horrible to work for on my section the supervisor involved herself in my personal issues with another worker and took his side when it's nothing to do with her. I was not happy with how I was treated

Pros

Good pay, easy to get to, helps contribute to bills

Cons

Staff involve themselves too much in people's personal problems, job is stressful and its quite cliquey

Fun and easy if you can handle it

Working at APC isn’t as bad as everyone says it is The work is heavy and fast paced but if you can’t lift heavy things don’t apply it’s as simple as that really it says heavy lifting in the job description so don’t complain when you apply and have to lift heavy things The supervisors are alright some can be a bit funny but generally stay out of the way the staff are friendly and everyone wwoeks as hard as each other

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Low pay

Productive workplace

Working for apc has its pros and cons. Whilst I was working there I was employed as a warehouse operative and then progressed to management support. There is always room for progressing in the company however it's one of the least paying jobs I have been in considering its night work.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

A lot of pressure

Please read this review regarding APC

For a new driver this is the place to go however it’s one of the worst I was here for a couple of years to get the experience and during that time I seen safety concerns about nightly wagons are underpowered however they have addressed that issue honestly try and find something else wages are the minimum wagesawell

Pros

Left alone in HGV without the usual phone calls on how long you are going to be

Cons

Wages, hours 60+, stress, HGV s rubbish for the job. Under powered.
