There are some good guys at city plumbing but unfortunately management is to its lowest standard and as a driver you are made to believe that your role is not so important, salary is very poor with no real gain to overtime pay as it is just a normal rate, when and if offered it as overtime is handed out very selectively until they want or need a favour from yourself.
Pros
Early finish
Cons
Poor salary/ bad management

the warehouse where I worked was freezing cold and bad lighting in parts you could not approach the management and explain to them an easier way to complete a task because it could only be done their way, When one of the management made a mistake the fault was always passed on to lower grade staff, At finishing time if no customers in shop the manager would stand by the exit door looking at his watch and would not let you leave until he said it was OK. when I was covering for the lorry when the driver was on holidays or sick was told if I had a accident in the lorry I would have to pay for the repairs myself also I was treated like a gopher do not even go for an interview stay away.
Pros
free uniform
Cons
6 day week poor pay long hours

This company is a disgrace, management a total joke and so is head office. Let's just say that when you are spoken to like dirt, especially in front of other members of staff and customers, sworn at, shouted at, and when you go through the proper channels to try and get it resolved, head office don't want to know. Only a 30 min break and working from 7-5. Stay clear and avoid, not worth the stress especially for a rubbish wage. theworth the stress
Pros
None
Cons
Sexist workers, rude and very unprofessional and disgusting.

Sorry, I do not want to add a review for this company as, at the end of my employment it ended very badly and I am taking them to court for how I was treated. They advertise they are a company/employee oriented culture but they are not. I developed stress and had to start taking medication for depression during my time and I was not supported at all. It would not be my recommendation to work in such an environment for anyone, the level of stress and abuse is not comparable to the salary you could possibly receive.

You need to have a knowledge of the industry, if you don’t you are rapidly pushed out to the side and then forced to move on. No advancement or progression. Management structure is too many managers and not enough workers. Area manager is a bully and has no management skills.

Multi national company with everyday being different. My main job role was to over see the showroom make sure it was clean and tidy and all displays were damage free for customers to see and try out. The hardest part of the job was dealing with upper management with communications regarding sales and training

i would tell everyone to avoid working for this company, full of false promises and lies, Branch manager is a control freak, and has complete disregard for employment law, forced to work days off and told you wont be paid for it, and if you don't like it leave!! not allowed breaks!! no matter what you do, or how hard you work, it is not appreciated, i worked at this company for 4 and half years and not once in that whole time did the branch manager appreciate any work carried out, he would prefer to just disrespect the staff and customers with his awful people skills and his non existent management skills.
Pros
every other weekend off, 5pm finishes
Cons
poor training

Treated like an outsider

Enjoy the job. But sometimes I feel extremely underpaid for the work I do and the hours involved. At work 6 out of 7 days every other week. I like working here enjoy working with my colleagues and would stay but the salary is an issue for me. An increase in that and I wouldnt even be looking for other work.

Contact customers, get orders, then jump though way too many hoops to get "Special products " ordered. I've worked for other companies that have way more direction and foresight than this one
Pros
Free uniform
Cons
Not given the oppertunity to make a difference

Good place to work but there was nowhere to progress. Upper management do look after you and listen. I left because of a member of staff in the local branch not because of the company.

City Plumbing is a fun fast and challenging place to work. You can start from the bottom and make your way to the top with a career here. The benefit system you get with the company is amazing.
