Fun workplace but work was demanding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fun place to work with some good colleges & some good management, but physically demanding & mentality stressful with demanding and rude customers that thought you were qualified in all trades, if that was true I'd have been a tradesman making a lot more than the minimum wage.

Pros

Good colleagues & manager

Cons

Low pay for what you had to do, lunch only with no tea breaks

Very busy, they pay as little as possible

The job itself is fairly complicated and you alot to learn with no training. My manager was great but the good staff we had all left for better things and was left with inexperienced staff who were paid more than me but couldn't tell thier head from thier a**ehole. Had a good laugh with the customers until you have a problem then you might aswell be scraped off thier shoe. The problem is they expect alot from you but pay less than everyone else and have smaller teams so your pretty much having to work unpaid overtime to stay on top of it. Bonus scheme is a joke was 6 monthly now it's yearly and then when it does come it still doesn't even really cut it as the salaries at the competition is more than salary+bonus at travis perkins and they pay better bonuses on top of that. I swapped the job for a tele sales job that is 32.5 hours a week with no customer facing and the pay is nearly the same as what I was getting at travis perkins for doing 44.5 hours a week on average. Unless your a home owner the perks and discounts are useless to you. If you haggle enough at a builders merchants you pretty much get the same deal. All in all I really didn't learn alot there except for technical terms of products, did have a decent crew but thier staff retention is terrible as the pay is garbage and you have to work harder at travis perkins for it. Unless your a manager the money is a joke.

Pros

Hour lunch if you get one

Cons

Long hours, low pay, to busy to actually learn anything you need to advance

Poor pay, easy job

Overall the company is great to work for, feels like a family management are very caring and take what you say on board, unfortunately the pay is very poor and can expect to earn between 21-23K a year which compared to most other HGV jobs is at least 6-8K short of annual salaries of other companies

Pros

Work life balance is great

Cons

Pay is extremely poor

Stay clear

If your face dont fit you wont last five mins To many snakes that quiet happy to dob you in yet managers bend the rules and get away with it Managers all on different salarys certain staff earn more than others even drivers can earn more than managers some rolls they call managers but trust me your not you have no authorisation Mickey mouse hire company and bonuses well they might as well dangle a carrot.Some managers get away with murder like i said if your face fits payroll have no idea what they are on about its all done abroad ( tax saver ) your just a number but you will have to watch a silly video first claiming your not ! And last but not least !!! Over the top silly courses in branch to take the amount of people i know have worked here and jumped ship

Pros

Nice people to work with in branch

Cons

To many chiefs, hot heads

Recommendable depending on branch

Had a amazing time in general at Travis. Change in management was reasoning for leaving. First manager was young fresh ideas and provided a feel good vibe for everyone. Brilliant manager! Really helped me in a period where I was struggling mentally and helped bring me back in gradually. Forever grateful for this. New manager came in and was the previous manager before the manager I joined with . Was never up to scratch and gave a bad vibe

Pros

Decent salary, good colleagues, good equipment

Cons

Politics in ranch, system outdated, branch needed a refurb

Decent work place

Nothing amazing or different than any other job! If you’re honest and a hard worker shouldn’t be any issue. Don’t expect big bonuses and neither a big salary but is what it is and the wages are the same with any other building merchant ! Working there won’t gave you a sense of great achievement but will put bread on the table and abit more

TP Review

A good company to work for with good In house benefits (pension/share scheme) to name just a few. A national company with good career prospects if that's what you want.

Be good as a retirement job

Pay was awful, always want more from you but cut your bonus. Blokes i worked with were great. Training was poor or non existent. Good pensions scheme.
