Long hours, short staffed. The more you do the more they want!! Want you to work long hours but don’t want to pay you!! Management speak to you like dirt...absolute joke of a company to work for.
Pros
Job security, share plan
Cons
Want you to work overtime...don’t want to pay you.

Lots of chances for progression if you have a can do attitude. Achieving bonus is attainable if you work hard. Decent canteen, you can choose what time you take your dinner break (varied slots) no headset picking, you use a wearable instead. Good training is given on induction.
Pros
Training, breaks, overtime, vouchers at xmas, double discount days
Cons
To much CCTV surveillance (big brother is watching)

Worst experience ever ! Management is awful! They are all bullies especially sales manager & HR. Only 3 black people in whole company and I was the third LOL! Ever seen the movie get out.. HA! To be specific the ‘male’ sales manager was very unhygienic and disrespectful who loved to gossip about his own team members. He also used to blamed everything on his own team members to make himself look better what a joke
Pros
Ok salary, lots of freebies, Great working hours
Cons
No professionalism, racism, Management, Hr, bullying, no diversity and much much more !

Managers are always rude and grumpy, they overwork you, health and safety is none existant, PPE is not required, only a high vis if picking but no safety gloves or boots, their hand scanners are never washed and are covered in 20 years worth of dried up crusty sweat which is disgusting, they never pay you for overtime and when you dispute not being paid they do not ever pay you for time and a half or double when you are owed it. Everyday my supervisor would pester me for overtime then when I worked it they would not pay me and they wondered they I left. On top of all of those reasons not to work there, the building itself is filthy and falling apart. At one point part of the ceiling inside collapsed and could have killed someone. DO NOT WORK HERE. They are con artists.
Pros
None
Cons
Management are awful, no pay for overtime

No assistance from management. The workload was often not achievable within your working hours, so you had to do more and go without a break. Often mentioned but nothing done.
Pros
Discount in store
Cons
Long hours, no breaks

Very stressful. Treated badly. No respect. Fast turnover of staff. Don't get paid for the hours you work. Don't like paying overtime. Staff are normally decent and friendly though.....

Bookers isn't a fair company, most of the time, managers are jubious to work with colleagues as most members are insubordinate towards authority. The Salary is laughable, due to the amount of work we have to do, it isn't surprising that workers come and go.

Overall Booker is a productive and good place to work that has a lot of possibility to learn and develop skills if you are willing to push yourself. They pay good competitive wages.

Always short staffed. Jobs are horrid, expect you to be able to split your self in to a million people and gets everything done in an hour. Management have no idea who to speak to people. No matter what you do it’s never good enough
Pros
Discount
Cons
Everything

I worked for makro Norwich for 6months, some days can be very stressful and a little disorganised, you work every other Saturday so not to bad for a retail/ catering company, probably the biggest let down for me was the other van drivers were on 50p more an hour than me due to being on a older contract, the pay is competitive if your on a old contract but newer workers will get less, you can advance to become a canter driver on the 7.5 tonne, apart from the hourly wage it’s not a bad company to work for and the staff are all friendly,
Pros
Coffee, not a bad pension, time and a half
Cons
Can be very stress full, less pay doing the same job as other van drivers

Neil Jones ! If your from Wigan you will be fine and looked after , worked there 4 years and your expected to have no life and live for booker . Good lads work there and the money’s good with plenty overtime that’s all that’s keeping people there , very very pathetic managers and serious brown noses sniffing about them. Trust none of them
Pros
Cheap canteen / good lads work with
Cons
Managers

Worked in reading for 2 years managment are vindictive and expect you to do overtime for no extra pay always put extra on the same people they want you to work your breaks regardless of taco hours hence put it on break while unloading or you get back late and are unpaid for extra time van drivers just get put on like the lowest of the low. If you refuse to do a delivery its classed as unreasonable request and your taken to the office and disciplinay procedures started yet for some its ok to refuse. No health and saftey and no risk assessments for customers premises so could be taking up steps etc. Overload cages and have no idea how hard it is to pull a 350kg cage over streets and up and down kerbs unless you want rubbish pay given by rubbish managers at a rubbish place of work steer clear. If you go sick you get a disciplinary and they try to sack you after a couple of times sick.
Pros
Sometimes get a drink of very few customers
Cons
Unpaid extra hours rubbish management

I was very rarely paid correctly. expected to work after hours for free and treated like a child regularly. Branch assistants are expected to work until breaking point whilst the managers eat takeaways in the office. Staff are not treated equally and the atmosphere is depressing, most staff will go off sick as it’s the only way they are able to escape this prison.
Pros
Home time
Cons
Have to chase to get paid correctly, unpaid hours
