Warehouse work which is basically work till you it your targets if not, most likely won't be kept on. Some jobs in the warehouse are very tiring and strenuous but, will be allocated to suitable workers.

Looks great from the outside; gym, BBQ area etc. If you are in one of the bad areas it can be very stressful with a ridiculous workload that managers expect you to be responsible for. Bullying culture; hated it! Nearly all are afraid to speak out for fear of getting the push. So much false happy clappy and smiley behaviour. Yuk! So glad Ive retired!
Pros
Clean
Cons
Working through lunch and staying behind for no extra pay

Work experience: When studying at GCSE level I embarked on a week’s work experience program at the Very.co.uk headquarters. This was my first experience in a professional environment and during the week I worked in a variety of operational areas, from the fashion photography studio to the pricing and promotions department. Most significantly, I had the chance to oversee the Business Analyst team who were responsible for providing solutions to issues that arise in the business and preventing them from occurring again. This opportunity gave me the chance to experience a professional environment.

Worked for Shop/Littlewoods for 25 years and only left due to family relocation. Lots of opportunities to grow and move in and around the company. Excellent leadership opportunities and coaching. An exciting place to work!

Typical Senior Project Manager role, looked after a variety of IT Projects. Budgetary control is critical so this is one to think about. Would definitely go back

There was a desire to change the organisation from the top, however the vision wasn't clearly communicated, this resulted in wasted effort and constant change in priorities.

Shop Direct was a fast paced office, with many different areas of the business under one building, (IT, Buying and Merchandising, Finance), their is a good work ethic and work moral around the business.

This was a fast-paced environment, and they had PI targets to hit, it was fun! Although some people who worked there were rude, management quickly sorted that out. If you've just left college, this place is a good place to work. You get full training and benefits from the cafeteria

I enjoyed it there as the work was enjoyable and getting there was no trouble. The overall experience was great and I wouldn't change anything. I would recommend people to work there as I found the place good. The only downside to the place is that it is closing down and relocating to Birmingham.
