Meridian is OK

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As far as an agency goes, they arnt too bad. Just a shame they have to obey the rules of absolute idiotic managers from next. As far as they run as an agency it isn't too bad though, although staff in the office are over loaded with work constantly but they still do their best to accommodate your needs.

Repetitive but time goes quick

Manual handling job, fast paced and friendly staff. Next employees don’t treat you differently and managers and skilled trainers are there to help you and want you to succeed. Agency did have issues with telling us the correct shift times and paying us correctly, was hard to speak to them on the phone as often they wouldn’t answer

Warehouse Operative

Having read, various reviews, I wouldn't if I had the chance again, even consider working for this agency, they tell you what you want to hear, at this moment in time, the work isn't there, so you are stood around ok you are getting paid for it. But the morning shift is in the pipe line of being got rid of, then in the later stages of January/ February you then get laid off, if its job security you are looking for I wouldn't even consider this Agency ( MERIDIAN) NEXT themselves, I found the management to be good, I didn't have No problem with them, if you do your job, your ok, but obviously if you just stand around you deserve to get a telling off, but they are more relaxed than hard on you, the Next management, the Meridian lot are a waist of space!! The Team trainers are great, deserve better than they are getting off there employers, oh, and you've to work BANK HOLIDAYS at single time you don't even get a day back,

Pros

Subsidised canteen

Cons

You are given, a set shift if you don't like it, you've No chance of a job

fun, busy

fun place to work, lot of shifts available and plenty of overtime during busy times, various roles you can get training in, management could delegate tasks more fairly to agency workers

Didn’t pay me

I worked a couple days at a warehouse through this agency and ended up leaving. It’s been almost a month now and I haven’t received my wages… Avoid this agency!

Rubbish

Meridian is such a rubbish job, they hired a bunch of us for an induction , we got the job and was given the choice to work Sunday - Thursday or Tuesday to Saturday. But they lied and made us work days we didn’t agree too . They fired us randomly after 5 days with no explanation or reason . Don’t waste your time working for them THEY WILL USE YOU FOR FREE LABOURRRR

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

No.

This job is unprofessional and unfair . They started firing random people without listening to their reasons or telling them why they fired you and when you try to call or get in touch they don’t read or answer your messages. Diverse but they have people who look at you differently and talk down on you if your doing something wrong . Training is given but sometimes they don’t teach you how to do things and then your left to make your own decision that could be wrong. Also the 9 and a half hours work with a 40 minute break ?

Pros

Some nice staff

Cons

Long hours and environment

They are a fantastic company and very friendly people who are easy to talk to and will help you with anything work related

This is one of the best agencies I’ve ever seen, the are so friendly and kind, they do so much for you as well as check up on you after a couple of weeks when you start a placement just to see if you are getting on alright.I would highly recommend meridian to anybody looking for work.What a fantastic company :)

Pros

Good hours and good money

Hi there, we are really sorry to hear this, if you can email marketing@meridianbs.co.uk and let us know which branch you worked for we will look into it.

Friendly and relaxed

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.

Some points of improving

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

I was told by my supervisor there was a scoring system and I was safe, but a paranoid, sad, jealous, complained to the senior supervisor about me, so I got finished

Occasionally get sent home early if there is not enough work to do
