I worked for Culina for 4 months through Unity Resourcing Solutions agency. I was employed on a 7am-7pm, 4 on 4 off rota.The job was quite demanding with difficult pick-rate targets. Co-workers were friendly but sometimes irritable because of the targets. Pick-rates were also openly displayed on the wall which added additional pressure to the job.The manager's regularly monitored each individual's pick-rate score and would call people into the office who were underachieving.After 4 months I was offered a full time contract but due to child care commitments and the management's refusal to work around them I was left with no other option than to seek alternative employment.This left me disappointed by the lack of support shown by the company.
Pros
Decent hourly rate.
Cons
Difficult targets (KPIs), Cold working environment

No proper communication from management, low pay, made to feel like they are doing you a favour. They expect you to drive unsafely to hit targets & when someone has an incident it's overlooked & nothing done about it. No H& S to speak of.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Culina is, I would say, on the upper end of the scale for companies to work for. The vehicle fleet is highly maintained and is renewed every 3 years or so. The haulage industry in general, needs to look at rates of pay. Culina is fair with their salary. But it should be better, throughout the industry too, given what you are being asked to do, with regards to hours, shift patterns and unsociable hours etc.
Pros
Well maintained and up to date vehicle fleet.
Cons
Long hours, nights out, varying start times.

Poor management, the employers are not respected and appreciated. The management is using the power to show to the employers that they can do wothever they like. Disgusting .
Pros
Working hours.
Cons
Management.

Simple maths: As a full time driver u doing around 240+ hours a month. Earnings 2000 per month after pension deduction u end up working for £8.30 per/h ( after tax ) u get better earnings as warehouse person and less responsibilities. When u r on your 5 working days shift say goodbye to family and social life . Not recommended at all . This place only good for LTD drivers . You just a number for them not a human being. If u want to become a zombie than good place to work 💩💩💩💩💩
Pros
Very good lads on gate house
Cons
Silly amounts of working hours!

After I have a really lovely interview and met the people I would be working with I was really looking forward to my new role. The pay was not very good but I just wanted to work with the people I met so I looked past that. Everything worked well until there was a new manager who took a dislike to me and my voice. He made life very difficult for me, embarrassing me in the office and literally drove me out of my role. Very sad in the circumstances.
Pros
Some of the people
Cons
The manager and the lack of team work
