Warehouse Worker in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire
Enjoyable Working Environment
Very happy working at CEF Online in Biggleswade. The Warehouse is busy but everyone pulls together across all shifts to ensure work is completed. Before joining I was a bit apprehensive due to other reviews on here but, having been here for a few months, I can't agree with any of the negative reviews. From my understanding, the poor reviews are from ex-staff who are obviously not happy because they were let go.
Sales Assistant in Somerset
Doesn’t add up with contract
Long hours , made to do unpaid overtime. Saturdays are also unpaid. No lunch break at all. Training is very poor , they promise training and progression from the start but this is a lie to get you in the door. All responsibility is pushed down to you to make the mangers look good. Your just a number they don’t care about there staff. Even on a £20,000 salary you will be doing 50+ hours a week and working for around £7.20 an hour with no breaks.

Avoid unless you want to lose all your hair and make no progression in life
This is the worst company I could possibly have the miss fortune off applying for and getting the job going into cef I didn't have any idea what the company was like untill I got the job it was the worst job you could possibly of had and that's not a joke they make you work extremely long hours for no pay they force jobs that you shouldn't be doing the manager would happily sack you for his family to take your job this company is meant to be for the the staff but trust me it isn't it is all about back stabbing also to top it off they try and change you as a person and expect you to be something you are not STAY AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE COMPANY.
Account Manager / Internal Sales in Leicester
long hours / good pay
Your experience could be totally different depending on the size of branch
that you work at as there are 390 branches with 390 different sets of customers and 390 different branch managers & staff teams.
Cef are now investing in staff training for the future so a new starters experience should be a totally different experience to the one ten years ago. However due to the nature of the business it is inevitable that the long working hours and short breaks will continue as the expectations on the internal teams who work so hard to please customers and management will continue.
Warehouse Operative in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire
Avoid at all costs
You would have to be more than desperate to work here!! Supervisors are vindictive and lazy, hr is nasty beyond belief and takes great delight in sacking staff. Hr refers to us as cabbages as proved by a former employee.Management are clearly incompetent and they’re answer is “if you don’t like it you know where the door is!”. Lots of heavy lifting involved with no help. Highest staff turnover in this area and it’s easy to see why.
