I worked with the company and pull you to do the norm and those who do and those who work all that money take is not a company with a good management so it is not good to be with them on contract with agencies is better paid than them I don't pay overtime so it's not a fair company in many points of view etc ...

Unpaid overtime and unrealistic time expectations for deliveries

I enjoyed working here, if only the management were more transparent with staff. Good working environment and perks, large onsite car park and great marketing events for suppliers
Pros
Perks, product tasting, car park
Cons
Forever changing market can be hard to keep up

It's a good place to work at some of the people are a good laugh but some can be difficult to work with or quite sly and will do anything to get you in trouble I had a very good experience working there although the manager there Ian is not very nice at all and is just disrespectful and will do anything to get rid of you otherwise it's a pleasant place to work at although can be tiring work as it can be quite heavy items to light and lug around

Has a company matthew clark constantly struggles to adapt to the modern way of working with its company practices to its in-house policies a day to day job a matthew clark is like going back in time to It’s treatment of staff when unreasonable requests are forced with the employees option taken into consideration low code off ethics and always a case of profits over people the 90’s rather than 2020
Pros
Job and finish
Cons
Profits over people

During my period of employment with Matthew Clark I found my colleagues to be friendly, helpful and cooperative. The senior staff were very pragmatic and comfortable in their roles and this gave me confidence in mine. The environment was well suited to the work and while not all equipment was available all the time, solutions to such issues were quickly and sensibly resolved without conflict or panic. I would gladly work for this company again.

Great people and a lot of benefits but the company has struggled from the top over the last few years. Too many changes and no clear direction filters down to the bottom. People being given roles (out of their depth) for the sake of it and too much of the staff lack ambition. Not massively challenging but there is plenty of room for development and progression.

Poorly managed throughout, hours vary by day but start at a certain time, it depends on the volume of customer orders received, be prepared to be slung in at the deep end and left to it. The management then leave you to it with minimal input

The pay is ok but could do with a better wage to be closer to similar dray team. There's not much of a working together as a team. If you don't mind hard work with ok pay as long as you have no debt and don't mind working all hours then it's for you it's not for everyone.
Pros
26 day's holiday
Cons
Long day's no overtime pay after forty hours

Lots of things to change to be recommended, but as a whole company can only improve.Managment need to be reviewed as they are stuck in the 1970s no idea off current times

Lots of staff talk about how bad they have it here but since I started I have been left to do my job and have been praised for doing it well. If drivers crash trucks they are investigated and given a re training test. I have seen drivers lose their jobs for having regular accidents. I like the 5 day week working Monday to Friday with my hours not being more than 44 per week since I started. I don’t get overtime pay but sometimes work less than the 40 hours I am paid.

Great work culture, very friendly and supportive colleagues along with lots of opportunity to progress in other areas of the business. The company pays for courses to help you grow and develop.
