Pros
good money and flexibility
Cons
Sometimes long shifts but thats the nature of the business

They only care about the business needs not about you your just a number to them it didn’t always be like this only since there was a new manger put in who is hardly ever there no communication between management or staff health and safety is a joke only one person who works from home so that explains the health and safety the only good thing is the lads and lasses you work with starts and finishes there wages are always messed up always something missing

Worst place ever to work. Would never recommend. Management are completely useless outside smoking 80 percent of the time. Lazy employees and work load given to the only ones who bother to do there job. drugs being taken in the big freezers and behind the cash office. Breaks not monitored staff members constantly sneaking out for cigarettes. Weekend staff is like a school playground. Certain staff members are favoured and get away with things others never would. Overall the worst place I have ever worked in my life.
Cons
Management are rubbish!

Management are like little kids. Nothing is there fault. It’s always the drivers fault if anything goes wrong. Even if they tell you to do it. It wasn’t until I left there that I realised just how bad they were to work for.
Pros
There are None
Cons
They will try and sack you for the slightest litle reason

After working there for a while you soon learn that the management culture is as bad as it gets in terms of the bullying and there is no value for the individual you are treated very poorly and there is a high turnover culture in the company as an whole no-one and I mean noone wants to stay in the company for too long
Pros
Free bread
Cons
Too many to describe

I worked for bookers as a delivery driver for the company. Mainly doing catering, pubs, restaurants etc. It got extreme sometimes doing 14 plus hours a day sometimes but i loved my job. Had fantastic job working relationships, both within and outside the business. Such a shame how bookers didn’t hold much value in anyones position however. To be blunt i was sacked after it came to light of a SPENT past conviction. I know this is illegal but nevertheless they still dismissed me. And not just myself they also seemed to have a trigger finger when it came to any conduct. Driver, manager even area manager were in my time and before my employment. Bottom line good company but just that shallow and soulless at the top a real let down and just short of what could be in my opinion. One of the best places of work.
Pros
Buy in store at discount, free crisps, seasonal events, good working atmosphere
Cons
Long hours, heartless HR department

This could have been a brilliant place to work if not for ONE person. The job itself is a very good job. The wage and hours are OK. Unfortunately the area manager is a horrible person who makes it difficult to enjoy your job.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
The area manager

Worth it if you’re looking for some money or a first job. Really isn’t much that goes into the place, boring and dirty with rat problems. Supervisors only like the employees that work hard to make their life easier and will do nothing to appreciate it but calling you their “hero”. They will always try and get the most out of you for £8.87 ph which is poor for the amount of work you will be doing. The management is bone idle and area manager just sits about and slags people off when the store looks untidy. The equipment needs changing across the store, for example, the cages are all mostly broken and rusty which makes it harder to pull around the warehouse. However, you get a very generous 10% off at Booker.
Pros
10% off at store
Cons
Every day is the exact same

Hard work for the pay.Small shops with no were to park many stores are handball you have to park on path ways double yellow lines and red no stopping rutes or push the gages that weigh half a ton full of pop and water half a mile to the stores then the gage does not fit through the door you have to check off high value goods and if there is any missing you have to do a interview when you return back to base makes you feel like you have had the missing stock were the Wearhouse has not loaded the run currently .They send runs out with with article vehicles when it says 18 tons vehicle s only bad planning .chat to most of the drivers and most are looking to leave says a lot for the company really so if you want to be pulled up for braking late when you get cut up by some other vehicle or told they want there stock putting around there store when they give you 30 minutes to unload 5 gages hand ball the drive 15 miles to your next store come work for bookers
Pros
Going home

Only good things is Job and knock and wages.Mostly young foul mouthed druggy Females in transport office with no clue from one end of a lorry to the other. No problem having cameras outside monitoring, but the Inward facing audio cameras that are constantly monitoring you, even though they say they are not. And they still are active even if your on your break...They Dont deal and listen to any issues that you have. And if you complain about things, you won't be here long. Dont know how I survived as long, I'm here for the money. thats it.
Pros
Wages overtime rate.
Cons
Team Managers inward facing Cameras

Where do i start??? This is the worst job i've ever had and i'm so glad to be out of there! The job starts off good with the managers saying you're great and the like, but they soon start shouting at you when you do something they deem as wrong like a low pick rate. The delivery supervisors encourage bullying by joining in with the 'banter' which get's personal most of the time. NEVER WORK HERE!
Pros
Good bonuses
Cons
Everything
