Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company does not really know what there doing in regards of container shipments the would ask there warehouse staff and driver to load a container when in fact they specifically employ people for that, there for not understanding the full extent of the business

Bad management

Worked here for about,2 weeks then decided to leave, got told at interview that you earn Great money which was lies, lucky if I earned £40 per week, then got accused of depot manager that I wasn't putting enough bags out, which was rubbish, we were putting hundreds of bags through people's door and hardly anyone was filling them and putting them out for collection, then they have the cheek to get onto you for not making enough money and threating to pay you off because of this, this company is a disgrace to work for and I definitely wouldn't recommend anyone else to work for them, it's a conn, full of promises at the interview Which never even happened for us, it's a complete joke

Whilst we dispute pretty much everything contained within this review - everyone is entitled to their own opinion. This was during the Covid period and we had to shut the depot for several months due to donators being too worried to fill the charity bags - this could be a reason why this team didnt succeed. Since lockdown has ended - teams have been collecting 2 or even three times what they were pre-covid (charity shops shut, people had a good sort out during lockdown etc). Scotland in Nov 20 is a very different place from those dark times in March

good flexability

If you have reliable distributers and put the ours in you can make money. it would help if you have a pool of people you know to help you distribute. I suffered from a number of unreliable people which made it difficult to operate.

Whilst this particular team were self employed - we do ask that people wear our company uniforms as it provides reassurance to the general public, same with the magnetics for the van - we ask for a deposit purely so cover the costs and its returned once you return the items. Sadly we do have to charge for charity bags - however these are hugely subsidised by Clothes Aid. As its self employed - of course you don't get sick pay or holiday pay - however our payment rates reflect and take into account this. We cannot control sadly other charity bag collection firms - but we do advise teams to move areas if they come across competition.

Productivity at work place

On Mondays I usually do bank reconciliation of 4 accounts; two in sterling currency, USA dollar and Euro. It requires precision and time management with all posted transactions. It requires work in co operation with other finance team members. The hardest part of the job is the time management as all reconciliations must be completed by 5 pm. The most important there is always someone who can help.

Pros

flexible lunch break

Cons

no coffee break

Excellent staff and management

This was a role I absolutely enjoyed. No two days were the same. I gained vasts amounts of knowledge and experience whilst managing my own department. i started off as an assistant and worked up to middle management, the promotions are there if your willing to work hard to get them. The staff were amazing, friendly and helpful. Middle and higher management are friendly and willing to help in difficult situations whether work or personal related. I dealt with clients all over the UK mainland, obtaining relevant permissions to allow Clothes Aid to raise vast amounts of money for over 9 UK based charities.

Pros

A great place to work for the right candidates

Cons

In house hierarchy can be a bit much
