Great business & great people

Very good business to work for. Very much a collaborative approach with great teams throughout the business. It is very fast-paced but if you are willing to work hard & be part of the success it is worth it. Good salary & benefits.

Very good place to work at

Working at KN for almost a year now, and I must say it’s one of the most relaxed places I have ever worked in. Management is actually helpful, colleagues are great the vibes are great.

Pros

Fee lunches, company car

Cons

Low basic pay, takes a while to onboard clients

Good place to work

Kuehne-Nagle is a great place to work. Depending on your department, your work load will vary. Kuehne-Nagle are flexible and fair. Kuehne-Nagle also offer great opportunities to develop.

Good productive work place

The work is good.The managers are great.Every Christmas the canteen food is free of charge.The payment is going better after reviews. You could apply for some training that will give additional benefits and money like first aid.

Pros

Good payment with lots of overtime

Cons

Bonus for Christmas is too small

Hard to move up

Underpaid and very hard to move up the ladder. Management follow what they are told from the top even if it doesnt make any sense. Shocking service from departments within

Hard work but rewarding

Hard work and some days can be long but there is still a good work life balance. Where i worked they were a good crowd and we had a laugh. Management very focused on safety but pretty decent.

Fun, stressful sometimes

Assembling different packages, not very hard to do. Pressure on accuracy and time but you get used to it. Not very flexible with timings but its okay as they pay was better than most.

Not good salary to live on

Employees were paid very little another problem was overtime when I worked overtime they use to didact hours from and next day so we were not paid for the extra hours we worked. Another problem was shifts we as stock & admin did not have life balance every day we had different working hours and the employees use to quit the job very often .

Pros

No free lunch

Cons

No long hours

Was this review helpful?

Absolute joke of a company.

Typical day at work consists of listening to kn indoctrinated members of staff harp on about how great the company is while making sure your desk is clean and tidy. Hardest part of the job is carrying the team leaders and managers.Most enjoyable part is going home.No idea how to run a warehouse. Only interested in making sure your desk is clean and tidy. No decent benefits but they harp on about their route2rewards scheme which is frankly insulting. Managers and team leaders are clueless and the pay is poor.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

Don’t join unless you are retired force with a good pension then your money might be ok

Looks good on the advert but I am afraid they lie you never get paid correctly, but as I have stated if you are ex forces with a good pension you will be ok.I am sorry to say they are not a very good company to work for, contract is written for them it has nothing for you.

Pros

None

Cons

very busy warehouse which was very run down.

every day was busy , had to stay back and work late at short notice if very busy. very poor management , awful blame culture , never appreciated , felt like working a hundred years ago. management constantly bullying staff and if you complained you would be disciplined.

Pros

its a job

Cons

amount of bullying from managers should not be acceptable in this day and age.

A good job, ruined by poor management

When I first landed this role I thought all my Christmas's/Birthdays had come at once. Was made to feel extremely welcome, my first experience of brewery work, so was really looking forward to the challenge, this was November 2018, move on 2 years, my how it has changed, for the worst. Shift lengths often exceeded 12 hrs, more like 13 & 14, even at night. Management only focused on getting the loads out on time, to their customers on time, no matter what. The contract calls for weekend working, every weekend without exception. The long hauls, long hours made me extremely tired, so reduced my working week to Friday to Monday only. Left due to being expected to run with defective equipment, usually due to lack of roadworthy units available.

Pros

Always plenty of work, no 2 days the same

Cons

Long trips, long hours, poor defect solving
