Warehouse Operative in Portbury
on 9 May 2022
Good wage for unsociable hours
Very good wage, induction week was mainly paperwork and videos so felt unprepared for my actual job role. Supposed to be 40 hours a week working night shifts with two days off but is really 43 would be more beneficial to do 4 on 4 off rota so you actually have a life outside of work as the two days off means you can’t easily go back to waking up in the day time. For 28k a year though you can’t complain.
Picker/Packer in Tamworth, Staffordshire

Average at best
Pros - cheap food Cons - too many to list but management only bothered it getting the work done. No interest in peoples wellbeing or health and safety of employees.
HGV Driver in Maidstone, Kent

Only if desperate
Hard work and management has no time to help the drivers.Thrown in at deep end.Long days,no over time.All over place so never learn a route.horrible.
HGV Class 2 Driver in Aylesford

Poor management and office staff
Very heavy loads and when you ask for help get told to get your head down and crack on. Maybe the job isn’t for you. Office staff talk you like a piece of dirt.
Warehouse Operative in Warrington, Cheshire
on 25 April 2022
Management seems to be all for themselves
There is no connection between office staff and warehouse staff. It’s simply us and them. Nights staff are constantly put down due to being forced to do overtime. The back pickers shift is an absolute shambles. Higher management look through the workers as if they don’t exist. Team managers where excellent though an always went above and beyond to help.
