Fast paced but rewarding ...

Fast paced environment but rewarding for those who put the effort in. Good people and atmosphere. Work can be physically demanding but experience will help with that. Good wage. A company that seems to be moving in the right direction for all in the future. I currently work here on the night shift. If things stay the way they are or change for the better then I'll be here for a very long time.

Pros

Hours, People, Wages ...

Cons

Travelling (but that's a personal issue)

Sacked for having a brain stem

Supervisors exhibit behaviour you would see in a primary school looking after 8 year olds, little man’ syndrome is rife, if you are an able bodied male you will be treat like a slave. If you want to work for baxi, best way is to be a mute. If you have anything intelligence about you it will be removed under threat of disciplinary/dismissal

Pros

Preferential treatment for minorities, can be late, do what you want with no consequence

Cons

Not allowed to eat outside, or sit down.

Aviod working for them

I would avoid this place. It is a sack place Your face has to fit. It is a racist place. They treat Agency workers like trash And they are quite open about it too. If your agency you will have to park your car outside. They make you work hard for min.

Don’t work for Baxi

If you want to be treated like a pawn on a chess board then Baxi is the place for you! Management are old and unprofessional in every way. The job itself is mentally exhausting and if you tell a manager about how you’re struggling with your mental health, managers are more concerned about getting you back on the phones and selling. You mean nothing to them. It’s constant pressure to sell 24/7.

Average place to work

It was a great place to work whilst it was an employee owned company. I worked there for ten years between 1985 and 1995. I couldn't comment on what it is like to work for now

If you work hard, they'll look after you

The one main thing about BAXI is that you'll never have enough time. The work can be very high pressured in the winter (heating season). You might struggle with booking holidays as well. The people are really nice and you'll come to think of them as family. The company values are written all over the office, but I find that some of the values aren't followed. You have to push quite hard to get anything done, mainly because people are short on time. Communication is a bit strained between offices as well. Manufacturing in Preston and Warwick Operations run almost independently from one another.

Pros

Nice People, Fairly Normal hours (by todays standards), Not bad pay

Cons

Emotional customers, Lack of time, High call ques

fast pace, work in order

I'd go in check which station am i working at. Then set up everything at my station. Start work when the line starts. Every 3 hours we would have a break.

Pros

good money

Cons

long hours

very low moral workforce

baxi was a good company to work 20 yr ago but now the workforce work in fear as the mmanagement are bullys and corrupt. theres been a culture of sacking full timers over past 2 yrs to replace with agency worker obviously on less money than full timers the company is a terrible place to be 8 hrs a day.

Great Company to work for

I started at Baxi as a purchase Ledger Supervisor and as this department had no supervisor for several years it was a mess.. After sorting out the department I was the given the Cash account from Credit Control to reconcile. This was a great challenge and took a while to reconcile. But once it was complete I then implemented new banking procedures for the 13 Curzon branches rolled it out and monitored it weekly. Also continued reconciling on a monthly basis. then in May 2002 I took on the role of assistant management accountant as well as my other duties.

Pros

Friendly place to work

Cons

long hours
