Was an incredible company to work for and it was a privilege to be part of BOC through the growth period and I am proud to have contributed.Unfortunately like many large companies operating in shrinking markets, times become testing and difficult. Alas ,overseas ownership saw huge asset stripping thus a loss of highly experience "BOC" people.I am afraid that has had detrimental effect on not only its staff but sadly on all its customers. Standards have slipped and so has customer focus. Its such a shame because I really did enjoy working and representing the old BOC , but like many find it hard to recognise in its new guise. Where there was once a chance of a lengthy rewarding career now lies scores of agency staff who know its only a temporary job...and sadly you do get what you pay for. Just glad I experienced some very rewarding years.

I learnt alot at BOC including new skills such as manual handling and delivery compliance. The site management where very good bosses and would go out thier way to help. The top managers were not very helpful or nice to work for because even though I was at the company for two years I was still an agency worker and was promised for two years about a full time comtract. The hardest part of my job was working under pressure as work could build up very quickly and deadlines could move closer. I did really enjoy the job as I had to work as part of a team and indivudaly on occasions.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Agency worker

Has very good opportunities, a very good place to start is Inbound sales as it allows you to gain a wide range of company knowledge.
