Fun because u get out on different stuff to do so you won’t get bored

Decent job but they mess up your hours and days of working for example they say you can 8 hours then make you do 11 hours. you can’t buy food there or anything so you need to make sure you are prepared.

Pros

Two breaks

Cons

11 hours

Very hard work for minimum wage

The hardest job you'll ever do. I came crawling out of the warehouse most days. Freezing cold and dark in the back of a loose filled lorry. Supervisors have targets to meet and some shout at people to meet these, some slope of smoking while at the same time frown at you for going to the toilet, and they demand you're back bang on time after tea break, even though it can be a 10 minute round trip from the far end of the warehouse. A couple of supervisors were ok. Some have there favourites. Some are complete helmets. Security Looks like a criminal and treats everyone as pure scum. Some of the longer term staff there are nice and friendly and helpful. If i was deaperate for work I'd go back as a last resort. Some characters there. Its disappointing that the staff are unvalued there. It could be so much better but this all comes from greed at the top. Water machines were always broken when i was there. At times it can be total chaos as so many targets have to be made.

The worst company that i ever seen Bad management, they don't care about workers they just decide who stays at work and who goes home even if you are a good worker.

Best warehouse for working

It's my first warehouse job and people are very helpful. They worked as a team and assist in work. Good to see different countries people and culture. Management is very supportive.

Awful place to work

Good pay hard work

Given very little time to learn and adapt and are expected to keep up with full time employees and you are not given much of a break the shift time is not work jobsites advertise but that may just be the recruiters fault

Terrible

The Job is very tiring, with only one thirty minute break. The warehouse is also very cold so make sure you bring warm clothing. Free parking is the only perk

Just terrible

First day there and the management was just unreal. Literally no body knew what they were doing. The managers don’t even teach you the basics of working there. All they tell you is to find something to do…

Pros

No pros

Cons

Long hours, 1 30 min break for the whole day, terrible management and no radio

Brilliant

Honestly couldn't fault it. I loved it there. Was my favourite job by a long way. The staff are amazing, the pay is, everything was great. Wish I'd not left but I had a baby and couldn't stay!

Shocking

Awful company to work with treat you as a number rather then an employee management wasn't very helpful and also treat customers parcels like it's rubbish no care about value etc

Worst Job Ever

Working for this company is horrendous. The management is a joke! The stress you are put under is horrific and the rate of pay is poor! The warehouse is chaotic (and not in a good way) Health & Safety goes out the window also.

Pros

End of shift

Cons

Long hours, stressful shifts, poor management, level of theft is unreal.

Ok job

It’s not too bad working there but was only there a short amount of time over the the Christmas period. Half the time they would book to many people and send you home so waste of time

Management/supervisors do not care about their staff, no career opportunities , security horrible (no respect), no training etc.

Feel very deflated, upset, not valued, sad, and so on. Worse company to work for. They have really done a number on me, i could explain what they have done, but would anyone care.

Productive and fun

Good place to work and the work will be mostly repetitive. Collegues are helpfull. Only difficulty is to get proper shifts. Some weeks there won't be any shifts.

Awful place to work

DONT DO IT !!!!!! I worked at the Nottingham depot and i'm sure anyone who works or who has worked there,.. minus anyone who's higher up getting paid to do nothing but to watch us work,.. will say its awful. It is not worth the stress and your mental health.. can't even say your time and money because if you work there you haven't got any time to do anything outside of work and the money is below average for what they put you through!! The managers and team leaders are all on massive power trips!! Most of them have NO management skills and talk to you like you're worthless. Overtime is EXPECTED of you, they don't even ask you if you can stay past your hours, they just expect you to stay. THEY NEVER PAY YOU CORRECTLY!!!! Over the 7/8 months i worked there i never got paid right, every month, half of my colleagues wouldn't have been paid right either, always missing a few hundred pounds, some never even got paid at all. The woman that works in payroll needs investigating!!!! Honestly, this company is a joke and i would highly recommend anyone to stay clear of this place as you'd be a lot better off not having a job than working here.

Pros

nothing

Cons

everything
