Generally a mess

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The work itself is not that hard after you learn how to do it right. Management of that place is just terrible. Picking staff who barely speak English, getting lots of goods from companies and then don't know where to put it. Computer system is always lagging, turning off, freezing, what makes work stop for some time.

Avoid at all costs

I had been made redundant (due to covid) and I needed a quick job at the time to support my family. Good god I wish I waited a little longer to look for a better job. This is easily the worst plavlce I have ever worked and probably will be for the rest of my life. No support at all, the factory didn't follow covid restrictions as they tried to pile all the employees into one area picking the same products. They don't provide any PPE which I think is terrible. AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

Prejudice Staff members. SLAVE LABOUR.

A Very bad Experience. I Worked an 11 hour Shift in the Packing Department and out of a team of 10 people I did the majority of the heavy lifting at a high speed while the entire team packed. At 29 years old I had an elderly female Staff member talk to me like I was a child out of School. and after unloading around 6 head height pallets at high speed while 2 members of staff hovered around me. Not working as hard or as fast as me,The Line Leader out of the blue lost her Rag and started to tell me I should be unloading two Pallets at once to help out another team on another line. Who at this point were not even packing. Completely taken advantage of as a young fit person I was worked to the ground while the entire team did all the easy jobs. All.through that I was spoken to like a child. Slave Labour. P..S the Toilets stank of stale urine where.members of staff refuse to flush and treat the place like animals

Don’t work there

Do not work there. Long hours, Rubbish management, staff favourism. Most of the bulk picks go to the Romanians that work there because the management is Romanian or European. It’s like big brother in the warehouse there. Have to scan in everything you do, like go toilet. You get worked to death there. Please don’t work there unless you want to put yourself in it. Worse job I’ve had.

its a good place to work

its good money and you get to do alot of productive work, i made friends with some of the packers and they are friendly, the hardest part of the job is the language barrier with most of the staff

There was no normal shift .. I did not know when I was finished. We could not plan your day visit to the bank or to doctor. We always have to wait a text

Pick

Picking items, very easy job, but bad salary. Easy targets. There is not hard parts. Most enjoyable job is to pick very small items because always need to pick them a lot and its easyer to hit the target.

Fun workplace

My typical day at work is not talking and getting on with the work to complete before dead line.What ive learnt is becoming more part of a team and working to meet deadlines.Enjoyed job and would recommend it.Hardest part was being with a new team.
