They used to be a decent company years ago but they are to busy trying to catch up with amazon.Overtime only available if your face fitsEveryone who moves up is mates with their boss Don't ask for holidays between October and January Get no support until you ask for it 6 timesNew site might be a little better but all the other companies nearby pay more - AVOID
Too many to list here
Worked here for 16 years.... I battled to increase my wages for many of those years, in comparison to my male work Colleagues!Then after that got made redundant!! Management only look after themselves. Your just a number there.!
Company next to some shops.
Work somewhere else!
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!
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.
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.
