Warehouse Operative in Didcot, Oxfordshire
on 15 May 2022
Very faced paced and competitive
Working here was OK for first few months then becomes very repetitive and rare to be able to work your way up. Multi national staff so can sometimes not understand people as they speak in their native language.

The good, the bad and the ugly.
The Good:- Decent benefits, Booker cards, friend and family cards and Tesco employee discount.-Easy to commute to-Half decent pay, although this is a recent development-Get left alone to do your job in general-Some great colleagues -Subsided canteenThe Bad:-Work life balance suffers, recent rota changes have made this better to a degree-Managers clearly have their favourites, the same faces are on the same jobs, normally jobs that have a high output for your performance rate-Pay rise and bonuses didn't appear to be reflected in the section leader and manager pay-Made to feel like a criminal for having an unavoidable illnessThe Ugly:-The performance rate model of working is a shambles, encourages unsafe behaviour from workers who live in their bonus -Warehouse was promised a retime which will no doubt only happen once the busy period is over and we are all working ourselves to the bone just to hit basic performance, despite massive and numerous changes to warehouse layout and line increases-Company cares so much about their "have your say" survey, yet changes appear to be for show only-Your replaceable, and you feel it.
Section Manager in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire

Great place to work
A large company with a good benefits package and room to progress. As a warehouse manager in a busy warehouse my days are never the same. Management support at my branch was good with a good H&S culture.Remains my favourite role I have fulfilled.
Customer Service Assistant in Leicester

Forced to work to targets
Applied for this job as a branch assistant but when I arrived I got told to be a picker. Management team are really controlling and angry and to my understanding no one actually likes working there. Even the wage can’t motivate you as there only paying minimum wage and making you work exactly 30 hours 5 days a week so you can get taxed! So if you are looking for long term work with a sense of job security look away now.
Delivery Supervisor in Worcester, Worcestershire
on 2 May 2022
Awful Management and repetitive boredom at work
I worked at Bookers group in Worcester for nearly 2 months. The staff are great and helpful and friendly. My manager was awful. Felt threatened from day 1 that I was after his job so training wasn't given. He did absolutely nothing all day, every day and his phone was 24/7 in his hand. I was used as a glorified picker all day, every day as well as a drivers mate. Progression is non existent when you haven't got support from your peers. Don't believe the Delivery Supervisor tag. You are just a body.
