Good company
A well run family business but focuses on wholesale more than stores. Quite relaxed atmosphere not much involvement from head office. No area managers in the business

Picker/Packer in South Shields
on 25 May 2022
Awful place to work
Avoid working here and avoid staff power as an agency, terribly ran and they never listen to any concerns you may have. You are treated like children and spoke to like dirt, the management haven't got a clue what's going on.
Warehouse Operative in South Shields, Tyne and Wear
on 5 April 2022
Has drastically went downhill
Used to be a fun family orientated place to work. Has went downhill in recent years. More concerned with profits than wellbeing of staff. Far to many agency staff hence less enjoyable workplace as people come and go constantly. Management don't want to know. No feedback. No communication between shifts.
