Very poor management throughout

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Nice place to work but it is heavy and we’re all always hurting ourselves (backs, knees ankles etc). All levels of management are pretty poor. They do give employees good benefits, including discounts, bonuses gift vouchers. On the whole i enjoy working there.

Pros

Good hours and discounts.

Cons

Poor management
Was this review helpful?

Robust and unrealistic daily tasks

Everyday is the same tasks, colleagues are expected to do far more than possible in the hours of shift. Very little or none at all respect shown by management, training is very poor with very little given as everyone is too busy. no communication as to days required workload lack of enjoyment in workplace except finishing time. Drivers overtime never paid. new colleagues never have any reviews in probation period and no plan of further training.

Pros

take anybody on

Cons

blood sweat no thanks

Bournemouth booker

The staff are friendly the management are very approachable I would say this job is for a near retirement person who was. The hours provided The salary is for the hours.I like doing overtime and I had no chance to make that the only criticism I can give Remember to ask about weekend work if you not interested in Saturday work this is not for you Overall the team at bookers have look after me very well

Pros

Benefits.

Cons

Saturday work. No overtime

Great workplace

Really good to work. Staff and customers are all lovely. Every day is different. Could be stocking shelves to picking orders or even going out in the van on deliveries.

A bit mehhhhhh

Certain members of Management ain’t very knowledgeable, don’t really give you any encouragement to do a good job, don’t follow companys own rules that they have in place but criticise you if you step out of line.Ask you to social distance but then they break it right in front of you.Feels like being back at school!AM only seems to give a toss when a Regional manager is coming in.Also a lot of backstabbing but........we all no who it is

Pros

Tesco colleague discount

Cons

Management, pay, terrible leadership

underappreciated

Do not work for booker all they do is over work you and leave you felling pressured and stressed out. The managers only care about themselves and their bonuses and rarely lead by example i.e there lazy. The culture is old fashioned and needs to move with the times this is my experience at the Plymouth branch.

Booker

A typical day at work is serving customers and stacking shelves and making sure all the shelves have enough stock so everyone gets the stuff they need

Good for someone with no experience

For people with not that many expectations.If you are young and you want to get more experience it will be good enough.They will give you chance, but it wouldn't get your salary better or your position .The company is family orientated and most of the positions are taken by family members of the staff.
