OK place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not a greatly ambitious place and, if they don't like you, they don't listen to you. Was employed to do a job and was obstructed every step of the way

Pros

Staff Account

Cons

Tough to get ideas across

Stressful and demanding

You will get given 9 hours to do 10 drops that is 2 hours away from base, impossible. Loading is extremely poor and most cages have no breaks or doors delivering to a sloped drive meaning the cages will run away and if you try to catch them your will injure yourself, no help and support but when your finished early you will be expected to go and help others which then leaves you finishing later then your finish time. Not much support from management but maybe the job is just not for me.

Pros

Occasionaly free food

Cons

Very long hours with no support

Poor pay for busting a ******* everyday

Never any thanks poor routing and management skills get what you want if your face fits other than that prepare for a long day no help and very old cages or overloaded pallets and then lots of damages also most trucks are reliable but others need scrapping but still get used

Pros

Free food close to sell by date

Cons

Long hours poor pay

Great place to work

Very good company with a good ethos, hoot to employees can be hard work but that’s same at most places, early starts, good team. Not much else to say

Stressful

Vehicles not looked after. Routes not planned well and loads can be too much for one person. Drivers are constantly complaining about routes and lack of communication between departments.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, stressful job.

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

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

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.
