Avoid

Just over all avoid, they give money in one hand and then take it out the other. Managers don’t know nothing but they are quick enough to tell you your wrong but never have a solution on how to solve this unless you want to lick your way to the top. If you want to progress PHS is not for you. If you want to be victimised this is the place for you.

Great environment, great people and culture work hard and get rewarded

Not a typical telesales centre, great culture everyone’s voice is heard, achievable OTE, full training and support which continues when you go live. Own territory and toll kit to negotiate to upswell and retain accounts. Customer centric

Terrible place to work

Terrible company to work for, get a route handed to you for the following days 8 hour shift but the routes about 10 hours worth of work, management won't take work off it and you're told that you must finish the route, you'll get overtime after 8 hours and that your contract says you will do overtime, it says overtime at times not every single shift! You're only allowed 20 minutes paid depot time at the end of your shift to wait in a queue of about 8 vehicles to get into one of the few loading bays, completely empty your vehicle, get your paperwork for the next day and deal with anything else then go load your vehicle up again. If you enjoy everyday overtime and listening to customers moaning about overdue service then this is the place for you. Only good thing about this job was the other drivers, helpful and friendly...well most of them.

Share your experience to help others

Worse company I have ever worked for.

Job it's self is great but they will sack you at the drop of a hatManager's have no respect for the entire work you are just a number and the job has become unnecessarily complicated they should let the driver's organise their own routes but they don't.

Pros

You are out and about

Cons

No company support

Good place to work

Fair bosses as long as you do your job . Plenty of opportunities to progress within the company . May be a large company but has the feel of a family run business. You're a person not a number with the managers . Work colleagues always on hand to help when starting out .

Pros

Fair pay . Overtime

Productive and fun workplace

Secure job/no threats of redundancy a bonus. Good bunch of work colleagues and nice approachable manager who will listen to you. Work can be fact paced and day goes quickly. You get good days and bad days with workload. Plenty of overtime a bonus is you need it.

Pros

vehicle to take home. Paid door to door. Plenty of overtime.

Cons

Traffic can be nightmare somedays All in all goes with the nature of the job.

The people make this place

Your typical day is varied. The people within PHS make the place a fun place to be. Management are friendly and approachable. They are flexible and helpful when able. Unfortunately no room for progression within the group. Very little appreciation or value for experience/years worked. Quite happy to show you the door so you feel like "just another number". Office is comfortable, free food onsite is a nice bonus.

Many thanks for your review, and I agree, the people at phs are great to work with! I'm sorry you felt there was no room for progression in your role. We work hard as a company to provide training opportunities to all staff, whatever their requirements. I will pass your comments on to our senior leadership team for review. Thanks again.

hardworking but enjoyable, great team moral.

Working for a company as big as p.h.s is different to other big companies i have worked for your made to feel welcome from the get go, and they don't expect too much to soon. With a great management team behind us we have a great team spirit and all help each other out.

Pros

plenty of overtime

Cons

some days you get more driving than others.

Fun places to work

As a service merchandise by ordering and replenishing displays within retail outlets. Recognising trends, assessing and ordering stock appropriately to ensure the sales units would have a constant flow of stock available to achieve maximum sales from the various display stands in store. Accounts clerk was bookkeeping Clients accounts situated within the office or out at the customer’s premises. Found I enjoy working either in a team or individually

Pros

meeting new people

Cons

boredom not enough to keep my mind occupied
