Russian Roulette

Depends on what type of directors you have, overall good pay package/benefits but branch directors generally just 'wing it'.Wouldn't recommend for job security but will do for something short-term.

Avoid

Worked there as a driver, wanted more and more hours out if you and because you're on a salary it's not worth it. Management have to like your personality even if you are incompetent. Worst place I've ever worked

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, low pay, poor management

The owners couldnt run a bath.

The branch has two directors who have the combined intelligence of a buckled bit of timber, which there is no shortage of at this branch. Stock controller and transport manager cause core issues for the rest of the team and leave everyone else to fix their ptoblems, putting extra pressure on the pickers and sales team. Sales staff have the charisma of a wet plaster, pickers moan about doing the basics of their job. Everyone seems miserable, the directors are out their depth and have no interpersonal management skills. They make a lot of money behind the scenes while others are slaving away and get questioned when going to the bog.

Would recommend working at MKM

I worked at MKM Building Supplies for over 9 years. I really enjoyed my time here and found the culture was fantastic. It is a fast paced environment due to the company expanding and this keeps the job interesting.

Long hours. Little job satisfaction

Because lunch breaks being constantly interrupted you end up working / eating at your desk. This results in you working around 52.5 hours a week. Also communication regarding how your progress or the company progress is kept to a bear minimal.

Pros

It was local

Cons

Long hours. No communication. Breaks regularly interrupted.

Work life balance MKM

If you willing to go above and beyond then you will do well, but at the end of the day it's a sales environment and pressure is always there. And since the sales environment at the moment has changed, but to many things. The pressure has grown! The company really does think they are looking after its staff but they are not, the branch network is run

Productive And Fun Place to work

A typical day at MKM is relaxed but busy. The workplace culture is relaxed but with knowledge that sales targets need to be achieved. The most enjoyable part of the job were the staff and customers.

Nice place to work

Nice place to work I just wanted to progress in a different route and the manager wouldn't allow me to progress through the company so I followed a contract that the company lost.

Hard work wasn't recognised;

It was frustrating to be doing the work and going the extra, whilst two colleagues did less than the minimum that was expected of them and management were inept at dealing with them. I tried getting management to deal with the situation, but they were too feeble. That branch lost two conscientious workers!

MKM Glasgow shocking running of a workplace

Some great lads who are messed about by incompetent management and company directors. Promise you a rise after 6 months it never happens make folk worry for their job and thrive off chaos. Would be a great place to work if they stopped interfering and then blaming yard staff for their mistakes then firing them. Also losing customers hand over foot because of mistakes with orders stay clear.
