Far from the best branch

Working as a member of the warehouse team (2) was extremely challenging due to the supervisor having no vision regarding new ideas and making the warehouse and yard more productive and a better and easier customer experience.On starting this job the condition of the warehouse and yard was awful with years of debris just left lying between racking etc which for a company that does pride itself on health and safety it needs to be addressed at this branch, product was stacked as if there was a complete no care attitude which again did not bode well for the customer.Customers and delivery drivers constantly complained about supervisors attitude and the condition of product which is bad for branch relations.

Pros

None

Pros

Money, easy job

Everything else

Not good

Got the job through an agency which the agency was great sorting it for me but then working for BSS doing a shift from 2-10pm by the end of it I realised that kind of job was not for me so I had told the agency it wasn’t my sort of thing but I wasn’t paid by BSS they lied about the hours I worked and couldn’t care less about anything apart from keeping there own money horrible place to work especially if you are in a sticky situation best thing to do is avoid working there

Great lads, rubbish managment

Great teams of blokes but management are shocking. Plays itself off as family friendly business but complete opposite. Punished for being sick or taking time off. Not great for wages either.

Branch-level is great, upper management ruin it

I enjoy working at TP, the people I work with are great, we have a laugh and get the job done, but there is a universal agreement that upper-management (regional manager and above) simply don't care about the staff they manage. I work in a branch with a severe need of repair work, the shop has no heating as the boiler is broken and "approval" to pay for the repair work has been pending for longer than would be reasonable. The lighting is faulty, the yard is in dire need of resurfacing, the materials shed is made of asbestos and literally falling apart. The one lorry we have at the branch is over 10 years old and spends more time getting repaired than it does on the road. I have recently learned that I am to be made redundant because "the branch cannot afford to operate a lorry and a van", and so my position as van driver is to go. However, that has not stopped nearby branches being awarded with brand new vehicles and the regional manager himself getting a brand new company car, worth well in excess of tripple my annual salary. This decision has been made despite the fact that the van provides a crucial part of our customer service, and frees up the one lorry we have to focus solely on deliveries rather than collecting stock from other branches and delivering "small" goods. The branch will suffer from the choice and everybody, even the customers can see this, only the upper management do not. All they see is "cut a job, save some money". They don't care about their staff, they don't care about their customers, they only care about margins and shareholder opinions, i.e. - 

Pros

The people you work with at a branch level become like family

Cons

The company couldn't care less about their staff

Good workplace/poor treatment of agency staff

Work was easy, other staff are easy to get along with. However, some managers have strong negative feelings about agency staff and they enforce that when necessary, without a doubt.

Pros

Paid break

Cons

Never become unwell

Okay to work

Not bad company The good things A progressive and diverse organisation always looking for new ideas and seeking feedback from all levels of staffing to improve services. Given autonomy over your work and no micro-management. Feel like a valued employee and part of a team. Pays okay.

Ok

The boys are good to work with have fun and get the job done but the management needs work need to pay a bit more because they are on national minimum wage and for the job you're doing should be paid more

Horrendous

Worked there for over a year. Extreme favouritism in the workplace. OC's friends were treated way differently than rest of the workers. Pointed out few health and safety issues and all I've got in return was the OC's laughing in my face.

Pros

nice salary, that's about it

Cons

overtime is not done as overtime but as annualised hours, favouritism, health and safety issues
