Straight away the £200 a day pulls you in . Everything seems great until you start your own job after training. Your let down by the product and management. Customers are hit and miss. This type of work only would benefit well if you had mostly your own private work and say needed 1-3 days a week to do one fit for hammonds to increase your turnover. To sum it up , its a gamble to do work for them.
Team Leader/Supervisor in Hades
You will never succeed unless you drink at the Wharf or sleep with one of the managers. Avoid at all costs if you want to progress. Managers spend far too much time emailing people instead of talking. I know of at least 3 teamleaders who have left due to stress
FLT Driver in Hinckley, Leicestershire
Lied to and miss sold me the job, beware.
was 2 years ago i was invited to work at hinckley under the agency as a FLT Driver loading machines, bord pick and running waste to the compactor..
Job started out Great, Enjoyed it very much and the staff on the floor are also a great bunch... job was sold and contracted as a day shift, but after a couple of months i was told to go onto night shift with no pre warning.. because i was not able to do this the boss made a very public outcry and frog marched me to my car.. ?
another thing ill add is Watch out who is teaching you!.
i was told to give the office my own number as they call a few times a day most days with requests or a change they need to happen.. that was the job and it worked like this for months...however later when the manager lost he's temper he then used it on me " your not to be on your phone"???....
very confusing place.
Sales Advisor in London, Greater London
Job isn’t as described in interview
Hammonds seams to be a good company to work for however the job it’s self is far too quiet,the targets are impossible because you may only speak to 2-3 people in a day.
Hammonds expect you to ring customers who have previously been into the store and entered completions to see if they would like to book an appointment,to me this is pushy Sales and not something I would ever be comfortable with doing.
Driver/Warehouse Operative in Rochester, Kent
Very poorly managed company
Very poorly managed company, the regional manager's have no idea what is going on from branch to branch, they don't care about staff or contractors, all they do care about is squeezing as many jobs as they can into the tiniest warehouses, and think it's ok to have just one person onsite in a dangerously over packed warehouse.
