Awful place to work

Never ever felt so depressed working anywhere as I have for this company! Money was good but they priorities agency over own workers. They don’t have a clue what is going on.. long days most days and work is always rubbish as they sub contract to companies so you get the rubbish they don’t want to do.

Pros

Money was okay but long days for it! Nice trucks

Cons

Long hours, management, rubbish work list is endless

Challenging

Working at ARRA can be fast paced and challenging. They are a business within their infancy and as natural, will make mistakes, including how they deal with you. But they are good enough to be honest and acknowledge that. The team are very knowledgeable and will everyone there is happy to support you when needed, but you need to be strong as an individual to handle the pressure and expectations. You need to have a broad skillset to succeed in this role, although they will support you to get you where you need to be. The MD gets a lot of stick online, but he genuinely wants the best for the business and the people within the business and will do all he can to support you, I personally couldn't speak highly enough of him.

Pros

Financial Packages

Cons

No switch off

Sucks the life out of you

Demands 15 hour days, pays your holiday in your pay to make the wages sound better, when in fact you are on minimum wage. The planners lie and are rude to you continuosly

Pros

Great place to work

Work is very varied. No two days are the same which is a bonus, some of the work is more stressful than other sides but swings and round abouts I guess.

Pros

Modern vehicles

Cons

Long hours

Stressful

Pushed to maximum hours..more concerned with getting the job done than drivers needs. Expected to do overtime most weeks and don't like it if you refuse.

Pros

Decent vehicles, average pay

Cons

Long hours, ppe not supplied

No respect by Senior management

The worst company I have Ever had the misfortune to work for. You get spoken to like you are worthless. Parks you up for 17 hours on your last shift. Then your last shift is virtually unachievable. Avoid this company at all costs !!

Pros

There is none

Cons

No respect of employer or senior management

Awful place to work

Certain person in the planning department hasn't got a clue about planning routes and the law about driving trucks ,and especially the 24 hour clock..Terrible feedback from management if there is a problem. STAY WELL CLEAR.

Pros

Money not bad

Cons

Rude planners, no manners, and NO peoples skills whatsoever

Good company to work for.

Throughout my time at ARRA Distribution I have been recognised by the company for the time and effort put in. There is a real Team emphasis around the workplace and all depots chip in to help others when struggling. It is both challenging yet enjoyable and no two days are the same. The drivers are a great asset to the business and a real genuine bunch of guys and girls. Although the business is still in its infancy, it is growing substantially in the right direction and I believe will continue to do so.

Pros

Recognition where recognition due, Teamwork, Enjoyable.

Cons

Current infrastructure. (I believe it will improve with Growth).

Hgv 1 driver

STAY AWAY.This company’s staff turn over is ridiculous, I have never seen so many people leave a company as here, Office staff would last a week then leave, drivers would last a couple of weeks then leave. You are expected to work your maximum daily work time a day for a day rate, you get no back up from management if the customer says you did it then you did.Say you will be paid extra bonus but they will tell you that you have not meet the grade that week so won’t get it. Change your start times at last minute with no notice.Get to work and the truck will have defects that have not been reported and then they will ask you to try and fix it.

Pros

Walking out the gete and never going back

Cons

Long hours no support from the office
