Fun work place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Ok place to work and met some great friends. Management kept changing and wasn’t always the friendliest. Hours were fine but pay could have been better

bad place to work for

you didn`t get the support from supervisors when you needed it also if you were ill some mangers didn`t believe you and would question you about your illness, staff members just walk off when it got busy and then you were stuck to help customers on your own and when you asked for help staff members would give you a funny look

Pros

none

Cons

no support, no advancement

Great people. Bad management

There is always someone to help. Everyone really friend. Work is very fast paced, sometimes making decisions too quickly without thinkingSome very weak managers, they didn't really understand the role. Other in the team were always getting away with not doing much when the rest had to pick up there work.Always worked longer hours

Pros

The people

Cons

Long hours with no overtime

i had my line manager shout at me many times, infront of customers, just for asking simple questions and queries such as what time certain jobs need to be finished by

Productivity

Lots of micro managing and it was all about productivity productivity productivity. I understand targets but it was ridiculous. I worked through an agency and was told that I was moving to another agency without being asked if I was ok with it first. It wasn’t all bad, the team were really helpful and friendly and I did enjoy the job but it was all about quantity not quality and I cannot work like that. Lots of cutting were being made by others.

Pros

Work from home. Car park. Free tea and coffee.

Cons

Very target driven

A simply wonderful place to work

An organisation that lives it’s values. Takes time to develop its people and cares about its customer. It taught me a lot and whilst it wasn’t perfect (where is?!) it was a brilliant place to work.

I loved the job and people.

I loved the job and the people. I loved fresh flowers and making flowers for the customer but there are more managers than workers. Always care about sales and do not care about workers.

Pros

Love customer and people.

Cons

low pay, too much to work to do, work at weekends. slae sale sale !!

Decent pay but unrealistic working targets

The pay is decent. Not sure about the unrealistic targets they set though, not enough workers to meet these targets either. New workers often quit, for a variety of reasons I’m sure, but not surprising with the amount they expect you to do whilst being understaffed.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Unrealistic expectations

Felt like one big family

Was generally a good place to work, had its ups and downs like everything else. Some staff were difficult & made life hard for the managers & vice versa but I suppose its like that everywhere.

Good work life balance

Good company and mostly nice laid back people. Need to be willing to learn a lot pretty quickly and often times there is no one best way to get things done, so the better skilled the person who trains you is, the more confident you will be when you start on your own.

Pros

Supportive people

Cons

Parking spaces limited

Fast paced but a great job

I really enjoy my job, you're mainly left to get on with it which suits me. Most of the people are lovely. Only downside for me is lack of communication between managers and too many chiefs!!!

Pros

10% discount

Worst job I've ever had.

Who ever does logistics needs a new job. Vans get sent all over and constantly chasing your tail. Sent an hour out for one drop to come back to where you have been before then. No time for their staff to organise their ID on the network so they can say check payslips, book holidays and so on otherwise you can't do any of these. Pay is 4 weekly but one week in hand and cut off is a week before pay day so if you apply MAKE SURE you apply last week of the month if you don't want to be in financial arrears because of how slack they are with informing you of these details. You will be asked to go driving before you even get trained in the job which is ok until they send you out on an over loaded van to the busiest route. Constantly asking for overtime because drivers always knock or leave due to how poorly the company is run. Great job if they knew what they were doing.. My recommendation is stay well clear if you enjoy your personal time and sociable hours.
