How are the working hours at Ocado Group?

    You’ll work on a shift pattern that covers both early mornings (could be as early as 05:30), late evening shifts (could be finished as late as midnight) and weekends.

  • Terrible working hours. But some workers might be desperate, either to have 3 days off, or to get overtime or to just be in a job. This makes it difficult to proffer better working hours, which currently start at 4.45am making it impossible to get public transport if you live in, say, Luton and work in Hatfield. You'll have to be in bed by 8pm to wake at 3am. These appear to be sadistic hours at best, regardless of how many workers appear quiet about it.

    Night shift, I believe, starts at 7pm to 5am. 10 long hours with three 25-minute UNPAID breaks.


    If they had flexible 6 - 8 hour shifts e.g. 6 -12, 12-6 daily instead, I believe there'll be less sick leaves owing to fatigue or transportation issues. Many more workers will remain in the job for much longer.

  • It depends of the day of the week

  • Like 7am in the morning

  • Generally 8am to 5pm. some colleagues do shift-work, varying from ten to twelve hours a day.

  • Nice place to work, but customer first, means they don't care about driver, Drivers leaving the jobs all the time. something wrong must be fixed. rotation pattern very bad. weight to lift a day no healthy means over average to lift per person a day. over over slow killing .

  • Night shift, start at 18:45 till 4:45

  • Can you chose if you want to do night or evening

  • Your just a number. If you ask for specail leave when your childs sick they dont help... what a great company. Feels like your a slave.. best thing is when you clock out.

  • Sick pay is bad they dont give you the right amount.. very poor pay. I wouldnt work here very bad. Managers people leave every day i never seen a place like this. Staff dont get support that much. They say try and sort it out yourself. The work can be hard driving finding the places carrying heavy shopping upstairs. Can get a bad back tired only 20min break for 7.30 shift.

Help jobseekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
