Disappointing

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Poor management and lack of direction I expected more from such a large companyBut on a plus side there is a lot of friendly staff that will try and help you

Pros

Staff shop and canteen

Cons

Poor management
Was this review helpful?

No consistency

The job role itself is great but poor management skills and not addressing behaviours of colleges who are constantly off or on breaks is poor meaning you have to cover them as well as your own jobs…no chance of progression unless your related to management, managers have no people skills and talk to you with lack of respect.

Poor poor company

The union rule the roost, the senior managers are incompetent, they are constantly screwing the workers over to cover their own failings, you are made to feel inadequate

Good workplace

Friendly team, nice management, good place to work. I was happy to work there but my health problem stop me to continue my employment and I had to quit. Otherwise I will be still working there.

Pros

Nice people

Cons

Lots of walking

Very fast pace and little regard for workers

Good money, however pay wasn’t accurate, the money it cost me to travel to work outweighed the pay so I couldn’t stay on. Night shift have short breaks and on the line work was VERY fast pace with no regard for workers health and safety as some people were struggling to stand after a shift. Little to no training was given on the actual site, it was just a matter of learning as you go which proved difficult on a line with immigrate expectations. At the end of your shift they expect you to carry on. Some occasions you are not allowed to leave when your shift is meant to finish. Good for overtime however it felt very forced upon you

Lovely people. Fast paced environment

Great pay and benefits. Plenty of room for advancement. The only thing that let's it down is in house training in certain departments. They definitely need to focus more time and people in there.

Not a nice place to work

You must suck up to management to get a good run, to much favouritism going on, drivers know everybody’s business. Staff gossiping about drivers wages

Pros

50p sandwiches

Cons

Dont know what your from 1 day to the next

Good company, chance of progress, development

I love my job, sometimes it is pressure of time, workload. All depends of Manager and Department. I work with professional Managers and I often meet people that helps me develop my career. Chance of progression and continuous learning.

Not paying enough....

You are standing in the cold place 12h, to get 300£ a week when you worked 4days, just because you are working 4on 4off and one day is just gone somewhere...

Easy

Managers just get rid of you without reason. The job is easy and not hard. Just picking and delivering. Voice job so you get frustrated when the device cant

Great company to work for

Possibly the best Class 1 job you could get out there. 99% of the time load will be tipped for you. There is absolutely 0 loading done by drivers. Many employees benefits and stress free work environment. Never rushed around as a driver.

Pros

Very cheap healthy food options at work.

Cons

Can't think of anything really.

Greencore no teamwork and disorganised

worked here for a while and found the department to be constant fire fighting and disorganised, no structure and everybody in the department was blaming or pointing fingers at others when things went wrong, when it was just a poorly run department and incompetent managers.

Pros

on site parking

Cons

disorganised - poor managers - out of date documentation and now ownership with problems

Absolute shambles

The company acts professional at first, but quickly proves that they're all about the money and not about their employees at all. The management are a joke and the hierarchy is the place is pathetic and heavily against the greencore employees

Worst employer i ever had

Management only cares about the sandwiches, HR dept is inapt. Pay issues, holiday issues, zero transparency, zero care.I would avoid this company at all costs

Do Not Bother.

Always talking about meeting picking targets while the voice equipment are usually faulty. Too cold, you het used to it after a few weeks but it's not a healthy place to work. Used to have anxiety about targets and all on my way to work everytime. You don't have to be a lazy person, you just can't scatter a queue ahead of you just because you want your name written on the board for high pickrates.

No day the same

I've been here 4 months after spending 20 years in retail and I absolutely love it, like with any job it has its ups and downs but keep your head down and crack on and all is good, love the variety of routes and love seeing different places

Pros

Different locations

Cons

Some routes are very long
