I really enjoyed this job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This job that I came to was for 5 years and a real pleasure to enjoy. Hard Graft, challenging, but they let you handle it within parameters.There were certainly "let your hair down" days, but you were there to do a job. There were evening events that were quite fun, and great to meet our contacts, though it was obligatory.We also received occasional perks of food, wrong labels etc at cost price.Finally they decided to restructure which I think added work to my job, I was already at stretching point.One sad reason for leaving was,personal circumstances demands, clashing with work demands saw me take the redundancy option

Pros

atmosphere

Cons

Stickler for timekeeping. Can we let go of suits, for more casual?

Challenging but fun

Working in a small but very busy office it can be very challenging, but no trouble for hard workers.The team are close and bring fun into your working day. There are plenty of opportunities for internal progression for people who earn it and show an eagerness to push themselves. Having worked for various large corporations its refreshing to work for a family company that cares for its employees and this shows in the recently awarded Sunday Times Best Companies to work for 2020.

Pros

Development Chefs provide hands on lunch demos, freebies from suppliers on promotions, cycle to work, Employee reward gateway, best companies to work for, living wage foundation

Cons

Very fast paced office not for everyone depending on their IT skills

Big click in the office

I had high hopes for creed but quickly found out if you don't fit in with the popular ones you were left out in the cold, no support when needed after the first month, left to your own devices, had an issue with a customer and because there was no support from anyone i tried to sort it myself and eventually got dismissed from the company

Pros

Good money and freebies at times

Cons

No support and unfriendly

Hard work made harder

Started out as a nice family run business with a caring ethos , but over the last couple of years it has changed dramatically. Think a poor man's bidfood !! Unachievable rounds , very very poor loading ! Cages over loaded and in very poor condition , (lucky to have 4 wheels sometimes). Management made very poor decisions during Covid making some redundant when they could of furloughed , they are now trying to re employ people without experience. New drivers have been lasting a week before leaving , but managers don't see a problem ?? You can be given a run with 7 hours min driving without doing any of your 8-10 jobs , impossible !!

Pros

Discount food, free fruit sometimes

Cons

Hard physical work, can be long hours

Not a great company to work for

Favouritism is a massive part on whether you stay or go. People are treated differently dependant on who you know. Less experienced colleagues start on the same salary as someone that has been there 5 years or so.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Managers

Great place to work

I work permanent nights and it is fast paced but enjoyable,you learn new skills all the time due to being moved around departments. The staff are great all the way from Directors management to work colleagues. It’s a great place to work and comes with great benefits and you are always helped if you need it

I am part of a good team, and Creed is an enjoyable place to work

My day consists of placing orders for stock needed throughout the business across our two depots. When joining the Inventory and Supply chain team, it was a complete change to what I was used to doing. I had to learn all aspects of the job. I also have to deal with stock adjustments, stock management and moving stock between the two depots. I also play a part in booking in deliveries into the business, making sure that deliveries turn up on time and into the correct depot. My manager is very supportive to the team, and is easily approachable when problems arise. The team that I work in is only a small team, but they are fun, easy to get on with and we all get on really well, and we will all help each other when needed. I would say the hardest part of the job is coping with large customers that do not provide forecasts for what they will be selling. The most enjoyable part of the job would be, no day is ever the same, you never know what the next telephone call or email is going to be. Also the team make the day fun and enjoyable.

Pros

Good supportive team, staff account for purchases.

Cons

can be long hours.
