HGV Driver class 2 in Canterbury
A drivers Job
Easy work but don’t expect to stay clean! Early starts but finish time dictated by driver, all routes are a maximum 11hr day with the exception of some London areas. If you work longer than 11 hours then your hanging your day out to get the overtime rate, if you decide to do this you can expect to take home £2300-2400 month after the probation period though, transport department and management goodVehicles old and most in need of some repair, however there will be new vehicles arriving soon.Overall not bad place to work, your generally your own boss, usual driver moaning but if you just get on with the job then you won’t find yourself out all day and half the night, working like that is self induced and your either an idiot that can’t manage your day properly or just doing it for extra overtime, that’s what makes it a drivers job!. Work is Monday to Friday, bank holidays off at least a week off over Xmas

Fast Paced - every day different
Very enjoyable place to work, every day is different to the next /previous, there are negatives but every work place will have them, the workshops could do with a lick of paint and the machines need some TLC but they work!! But, as a whole it is good place to work and the bad press is not fair, if you work hard and put the effort in you will get rewarded, ideas are listened to and people who want to make a difference can.
Sales Team Manager in Canterbury, Kent
Terrible place to work.
Out of date old school management. I was employed as a Sales Team Leader, a culture of bullying and threats was used by senior management to get Sales Developers to try and achieve sales targets. Targets were achievable, but only by those who had been given corporate accounts to look after.New staff nearly always failed probation due to the lack of support, training and the unfriendly atmosphere. There was a culture of 'stealing' the new guys' sales and customers. Calls not put through to them etc....This is not a good place to work. You are required to a 9 hour day, with one 30 minute break across the whole day. If you are 1 minute late clocking in following your lunch break, you are docked 15 mins.There is no sick pay and you are given the minimum holiday allowance allowed by law. This is an old school set up. You will be under trainined, under paid and under valued.
Warehouse Worker in Canterbury, Kent
Overworked and underpaid
I would strongly advise to not apply to work here , the company treats you like rubbish they never pay you the proper wage , half of the people that work here actually don’t do any work you end up doing all the work yourself , management are awful . You just don’t get treated fairly DONT BOTHER TO APPLY

The worst company I’ve ever worked for
The worst company I’ve ever worked for, the pay table is non existent and I was paid 4K less than someone on the same level as myself he had the same level of experience and work the exact same job he was maybe 10 years older ? Does that justify being paid £4,000 more a year than me ? He was even paid more than people who had been there 5-10 even 20 years ! Aweful management and zero care for staff! They put nothing in place for COVID and didn’t seem to care that people had high risk partners saying don’t come in then don’t get paid .
