Only listen to their supervisors even if they are wrong. They don't care about anyone else. I would not recommend anyone to work here unless you are looking for undue stress.

Hi there, we are sorry you feel this way but as we discussed with you, you were not following social distancing rules despite many warnings, so the client had no choice but to let you go.

I started with meridian as a FLT Driver working at Alpla in Golborne. The shifts are long but they are rewarding. If you are an FLT Driver There is no hard graft You pair 2 of the same pallets up, scan them and put them on their designated trailer it’s that simple. It’s the easiest job in the world, if you are a confident driver who can keep up with the fast paced environment, if you keep your head down you will be taken on with the company.

Suits my current requirements, much more friendly than other agencies in my experience. The process of recruitment was less painful than it seems to be elsewhere.

Most of the people I worked with were friendly. We would talk to one another but managed to stay on top of our work. I never felt stressed while working there and could always ask a co-worker for help.

I’ve been working for a logistics company in Yeovil for Honeywell aerospace, currently I’ve been there 4 months and am loving it! Pay is really good, really nice people to work with and get lots of opportunities. The only down side as I’m an agency worker my contract can end anytime. Other than that meridian is amazing and offer so much support! Thank you

They don’t stand up for you. They don’t help you. You feel as if they’re against you with everything. There is little job security and because you’re ‘temp’ and ‘agency’ it’s as if they believe they can stop and start your work with no warning. Avoid.

I joined meridian over a year ago now and have to say they are far from the best recruitment agency I have worked for. They are always happy to help with what ever it is you may need.

You will be on a constant watch not aiding in mental health but literally sat down for 14 hours staring at someone. you can only go to the toilet with permission probably 3 times. you cant go outside prison for your dinner. they dont give you any breaks and you fight for your dinner. I was physically attacked
Pros
money but its danger money
Cons
everything else.

Whilst working for NEXT PLC through meridian I received threats to kill from one of the workers at next I tried to call the police and the company tried to fire me because I wouldn’t tolerate this kind of abuse from anyone, I called up meridian and they tried to resolve it but nothing has actually happened, Both NEXT PLC and meridian asked me not to call the police but as no action has been taken I have been informed by my solicitors that I should call the police
