Local delivery driver
Keep changing the goal posts re admin needed. Prioritise customer deliveries over driver well being. Zero hours contract so very one sided to suit Cook. Not great perks - drove 6 hours on the hottest day of the year in a van without aircon and wasn’t even offered as much as a lolly or ice cream on return - not great from a shop full of frozen food!
Assistant Manager in West Midlands

Standard Retail Environment
Enjoyment of role will rest entirely on the other people in the very small store team - if one person is not doing their fair share of deliveries, evenings or weekend shifts, it can hugely detrimental to the rest of the team.

Total lack of support
Cook are a fantastic company its just a shame theres no support & encouragement from the bosses. All the staff are great fun super friendly just a shame about communication from bosses.

It's "okay"
Been working here almost a year. I mean, it's not a bad job but it is pretty much a dead end job in most cases.People employed before 2020 get overtime paid at 150% so when you are asked to do overtime, as a new employee on the new contract, you will get NLW so no incentive to give up your own time to help the company out when they need you to. The management spend a lot of time navel gazing and don't actually spend time working with you as they are too busy doing not a lot. Team Leaders lack authority and nuance, hence, if you are new , they won't teach you how to do your job, and mainly rely on people who can work on their own initiative. You won't get much training and you'll only be shown enough so that you can perform your job. A lot of chatter, and as such, the production suffers but noone will get on your back if you do less than expected in a shift because production and KPI is mainly an afterthought. The culture is very much, do what you can, so those of you who are a little work shy don't be afraid as you won't be pushed to your limits like most other places. It "can" be a good atmosphere but this is mostly generated by those who aren't being very productive whllst the harder working experienced people fill in all the gaps in talent and skill. You get free good every day and profit share and other benefits but mostly, it's a dead end job.
