Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The training was on a good level and the trainers really gave you the time of day to help. when you start you will be put on a flexi contract meaning they can call you in on your day of and you have to come in, after 6 month this is suposed to turn into a full contract but most people will be extended for the extra month (the reason they will give you is "you go over on your breaks "or "your profomance isnt up to scrach") either way its a benifit for them to keep you on a flexi contract. Most people will have left by the time the 6 months is up tho because of the physical labour involved in this job and its all for minimum wage! in my opinion its just not worth it and management do look down at you

Pros

Good Co-workers

Cons

The physical labour for minimum wage

Terrible place to work

Swansea Booker is probably the most depressing place someone can work. The supervisors are clearly less uneducated than most of the pickers and the manager of deliveries always got my pay wrong. Also I was refused holidays when I worked there and ended up looking 60+ hours and never got a penny for them. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!!!

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

slave workshop

lots of good people but bad management which think that they are better just because we get paid differently or they don't have to wear a normal uniform so that means we're less plus they make changes to the environment and then blame you for not picking as fast

Cons

long hours, no help, abusive, denied holidays
