Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I open up at 6 am every morning processing the delivery notes for the drivers and to check their load before they head out of branch. During the day I plan the work for each day of the week and by lunch time start routing deliveries and allocating deliveries to each vehicle taking into consideration the vehicle weights, size and any special customer requests. On their return I process the delivery notes and overlook the loading for the next day.

Awful place to work and very clicky

Absolutely awful place to work and extremely clicky. If your face didn't fit or was of a different race, colour or culture you wasn't welcome whether you was staff or a customer.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Long hours, horrible colleagues and managers and targets were ridiculous

good most of the time

Has changed in the last 18months. New people has changed the atmosphere. Management have their favourites that can do no wrong and leave other staff to just get on with things and no point in complaining as it gets you nowhere

Pros

staff discount

Cons

Treated well throughout..

Friendly team.. Nice place to work.. Could do with the senior management taking more charge and not listening from head office as this is a conflict of interest from top to bottom.

Unenjoyable

Due to such flaws in management and organisation they are often understaffed and overstressed which leads to tensions among the employees and lack of communication between management and general staff

Good Place to work.

I feel that out of all the companies I have worked for this one was the most professional in every aspect. My manager was LOVELY I cant fault her at all she was friendly kind and always made me feel good about my job. The training process was second to none I was trained on every department so I could get a feel of the job etc I was even show how to use the pump truck just in case I ever needed to use one. The only reason I didn't stay at this company was simply because the job role I was in was not for me apart from that the staff are professional friendly and welcoming!

Pros

Good Training Scheme. Good Salary.

Cons

Some of the staff werent very chatty.

Enjoyable work environment with adequate training and expectations

I enjoyed my time at Gibbs & Dandy, Being part of a multi-national company gave me security in the fact that my job was secure. I was placed on a very useful management course which has served me well over the last couple of years and has given me the build building to follow my chosen career path.

Pros

Good working hours and support

Cons

Few branches in the South West, progression to management means relocation.

Freindly colleges

Loved the job I did but didn't agree with overtime given as days in lou. I work to earn money not to take days off. Overall I loved the colleges and the job I did but couldn't benefit my future.

Pros

Friendly staff

Cons

No good if you want to earn extra cash for holidays away etc.

Enjoyable workplace

Started work 7.30 answering customers telephone calls, checking the delivery lorry is correctly loaded, serving customers on the trade counter, talking to suppliers, sending return notes, and checking the computer for orders. I worked along side my co-workers for many years and we built a very good working relationship. I cant say there was a hard part of the job because I enjoyed my work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of sorting out customers problems.

Pros

Good working conditions

Cons

Working Saturdays
