Fastpaced and stressfull

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It Is well known that if a place it is bad or good depending on the managment, During the period I was working for SIG the managment wasnt good, so the place wasnt a good placeto work. But the times has passed and people in this kind of companies are Changing so it might be a lot better now.

Pros

Very good salary and benefits

Cons

The late shift is terrible, and when someone doesnt work enough from the team all the extra work is on your back.

It’s as it says on the tin, ‘warehouse work’....!!

Was only there for a week for the agency.Yup, it’s laborious heavy work but that was in the job brief. Had a friendly group of people around me and although new, the management team seemed to be fair.

Pros

Good people, easy going but productive. Mon to fri shift.

Cons

Shift times aren’t conducive for a balanced family life.

Brilliant people to work with but Yardmen are classed as dirt

As a Yard/Warehouse worker, you’re constantly on the go. It’s not an awful place to work. My manager was brilliant. She would do anything for you and was a very reliable person to rely on. Unfortunately though, yard staff are paid lowest of all. Earning close to £4000 per annum less that sales and worked harder

Pros

Brilliant people to work with

Cons

Non stop, low pay.

Bad atmosphere with poor staff

I worked at Aylesford branch in the warehouse/yard. It’s a very poor workplace environment with negative staff members and a terrible atmosphere caused by others.I soon found it was more of an outside job than inside ( not really a warehouse job as sold to me) .The place is in bad repair and dirty and stinks inside and out. No decent wet weather uniform all cheap rubbish to save cost.Always blamed for any picking and loading mistakes and goods damage.Very very poor supervisor and operation manager with negative outlook on the company.Seem to only follow the rules that are stated in their company handbook when it suites and other members treated in different favoured manner.I’m now back working for an agency and much happier.Could be a great company if poor staff members left.

Pros

15 mins from home

Cons

Bad atmosphere

Sinking ship

I could write so much negative stuff about this company that the space here would not be large enough.It’s not so much the company is poor and weak, it’s the people in key positions make it that way.All poor reviews are very much a true reflection.Unable to follow own procedures and working practice.Poor managers at every level.Bad atmosphere and no team working.People treated unfairly.This is just a small list of major BAD points.

Pros

On site parking

Cons

Having to work for them.

By far the worse company I have ever worked for.

Management incompetent beyond believe.Failing company run by "consultants" earning more in the month than most Sig employees earn per annum.Complete lack of training and support. Highest staff turnover (unsurprisingly) I have ever seen in my life. Money wasted left right and center. Lack of flexibility from the company and dictatorship culture.Avoid by any cost unless absolutely desperate for work.

Pros

Salary paid

Cons

See all of the above.

If offered a job here - run!!

Never come across a company that is so incompetent, senior management changes consistently and staff turnover at branch level is through the roof, the company is losing money. There is zero training for new starts. Seems to be a case of if you haven't worked there for 10 years you will never fit in with the close minded people who work there and god forbid as a new start you have an idea about how things could be done. The sales team hate the ops team and vice versa each blaming the other for the multitude of daily errors, orders input to the system incorrectly then wrong and damaged goods sent to customers and no 2 people will give a customer the same price for an item as it's just make it up as you

Pros

I got out

Cons

See review my time there was all cons

Money ok, management weak

Warehouse management ruled by sales staff. Stock control poor due to second rate system with no scanner interface. , needs update.People are brilliant , some bad shift competition with people looking after there own personal interest .Lot of experience on each shift which makes for good atmosphere etc Become mirror image of another company with A large number of people poached from one other company!

Pros

Pay reasonable

Cons

Sales bias

Would strongly advise anybody not to work for sig

expections are far to high to meet targets when there is never enough employees,there was never a great deal of communication between transport and warehouse so orders were picked that had been cancelled,orders were picked for a lorry and then they were changed

Terrible place to work .Too much expected of you.

Nobody seemed to like the place .The warehouse manager was under pressure to improve things and put others under pressure. There were temps there sacked for taking drugs and others on £300 a week but destroying £500 a week in stock. I received no training and was subsequently sacked for being too slow. Health and safety is a nightmare with pallets of 3 metres long gyproc having no designated area but having to be put up in the highest racks at the up most racks. Someone's going to get killed!

Pros

None

Cons

Canteen basic and dirty

Sig

The company is very competitive, as this comes through some of their work ethics. My position doesn’t get too involved in this not as much as other members of staff that maybe effect. You can progress in the company if you’re ambitious

Pros

Good pension, shares scheme holidays and insentives

Cons

Can be cut throat and need to fit in

Worst management ever

The said warehouse manager is the worst person who could be at the head of such a large work environment. He does not really care about the health and safety of employees unless it is to demonstrate to visitors and to enhance his ego that is no greater than his incompetence in understanding the needs of employees. Today we are just another number. The provocation and falsehood that some employees are treated daily is only less than the bullying and stress that we are subjected to. The protection of those who bow their heads in relation to the manager's absurd ideas is disgusting and makes clear discrimination against those who do not submit to him. We are being forced to work twice as much due to the inability of the office team to understand how to effectively execute their profession, which today seems to be nothing more than provoking and infuriating the employee. Every day there is something new, but it is not something new good but a new freak. The way requested by the manager to accommodate the incoming stock proves that for him it is much easier to order new spaces in the warehouse than to order less product, some products are already occupying more space than requested and even so we have to do it the way the manager asked. And if it’s not done the way he told you to, wait until the next day to find out the way he’s going to punish you ... it varies between verbally, provocatively, taking away your right to smoke a cigarette, asking you to perform more than a task at the same time, the possibilities are endless... better stop here before there is no more space, oh - 

Pros

the environment is good and the staff are good people

Cons

if your day started badly you can be sure that it will get worse due to poor management
