Pros
Nothing!
Cons
Not paid for overtime but expected to work extra hours!

Very result orientated but Bunzl give all the tools for the staff to achieve what is required. There is also a big opportunity to progress through other company's within the group.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at Bunzl Greenham, having left a company I worked for many years. Everyone wants to help, drive beneficial change for the employees and customers. All of my immediate colleagues and staff from other departments have been welcoming and supportive during my time here.

Great Place to work - after moving to a new city and new job I feel like I have been here forever - Lots of support from colleagues and management. Progression, advancement and continuous training options available and plenty of space to grow. After leaving a job of 8 years that I loved I am glad I found this role.
Pros
great people

I worked here from 2015 to 2018.My main duties were driving and delivering to various areas in Perth Dundee and in Aberdeen going to such places as shops manufacturers and even Prisons.I enjoyed my time here and I worked with a great bunch of people both in the warehouse and in the office.No weekend working to which was a bonus.The hardest part was probably the waiting around at prisons to be seen.
Pros
Steady hours No weekends.
Cons
Waiting to be offloaded at prison

Working for bunzl and the team within my department is most enjoyable. There are lots of enthusiastic team members all who will go out of their way to help each other out to meet both business and personal goals. There are lots of opportunities and job openings and room to improve if you are ambitious. The offices are clean and there are spacious break out areas with free drinks machines. I feel secure in my position working for a plc company.
Pros
Staff discounts, share save, internal training programmes and bunzl group discounts via app for holidays, restaurants, food shopping, gym membership and child care.
Cons
lots of plc rules and policies

Plenty of prospect for progression within the Bunzl group, but hard to be recognised and reach personal goals due to poor management and lack of appreciation. External, inexperienced, uninterested and overpaid staff employed for senior roles who are more interested in pointing the blame at other departments rather than focusing on improving their own. Typical day would be starting early and finishing late, usually working through lunch hour. Some branches have much better work environments and facilities with better break areas compared to others. Hardest part of my job is supporting senior staff with day-to-day duties, taking focus away from my own role and duties. Most enjoyable part of my job is working with my close team who are all extremely supportive and self sufficient.
Pros
Share save scheme
Cons
Blame-culture

There are plenty of hard workers , making up for the inherent lazy culture of many staff in many positions at most locations. Plenty of own transport yet use fed ex for local deliveries ( drivers decide they must be back by 1pm and dictate what they will do ) Pay is poor and much is expected of you for little or no benefit. Positive is - things are starting to change, Slowly but until all the problem areas are acknowledged change won’t happen. Customers and staff are not important really and long servers are treated to worse contracts than new starters. Especially for sick pay. Shocking really. Share save is good perk- discount isnt as cost prices are inflated so not a good deal.
Pros
Free lunch of toast and teas coffee. Share save
Cons
Career opportunities are a no go, rather employ externally and on better terms

I enjoy working for Bunzl Greenham due to everyday being different with new challenges. The people are what make the business and the company do try their best to recognise this. They have a great training opportunities with e-learning, they even allow you to up skill in an area that’s not relevant to your role.
Pros
Great people, enviroment, development, e-learning, business.
Cons
Career opportunites as there are few roles and long service within the busienss so little movement.
