Featured review

Turner Price selected this as a representative review
Great place to work and very friendly. Working in goods inward/outward loading unloading vehicles and general warehousing. Can't fault management at all absolutely brilliant.

Cons

Hard work, tiring, early starts, multidrop, better than average wage.

Multi drop delivering food.Up to 20 or so deliveries a day.Local runs and further a field but always finished by 4 or 5.Not uncommon to finish early too.Most shifts start at 5 or 6 am.Trucks already loaded at start of shift.A lot of handballing and dragging heavy cages over uneven car parks. All other drivers are a nice bunch.All bonuses are achievable and its uncommon not to get them if your following company rules and not having accidents.

Pros

Competitive pay, nice team, free exercise early finishes

Cons

Early starts, hard work, tiring.

Terrible company to work for if your face doesn’t fit. They don’t pay money owed for overtime you just get constantly fobbed off

Avoid, an absolute joke

Lazy useless management, they bring their family in to get all the good jobs. Everyone else is ignored for promotion and given the worst tasks to do. Bigoted staff and very poorly organised. You never get any time off and the pay is poor.

Pros

None

Absolutely shambolic

Turner and price are a very bad company to work for with very poor management in particular noted at the Newton aycliffe site. The company does not pay as advertised, you are expected to work longer hours than stipulated. If you question your pay it results in the termination of your contract. A bad experience stay clear !!!!!

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, no management support, poor pay

Does your face fit if not don't bother

Working at t/p has changed dramatically over the past few years it used to be a pleasurable workplace well paid and you were appreciated for your efforts.It has as many of your reviews have stated become a place of nepotism to the n,th degree,you are expected to bend over backwards to get the job done in return for time off in lieu(which along with holidays you can rarely book off).Their are the chosen ones who do little, abuse privilege and are protected.It will of course survive as managers drive forklifts ,pick and load with those underpaid menials who fall foul to toil.

Pros

None

Cons

toil

Due to coronavirus I was put on furlough then when I went back was put on night shift which wasn’t suitable for my self and my family

The management stick to close together only start to employ family members no respect for staff members who had been there a long time people who do the least work get more respect

Cons

Good place to work

I performed basic admin tasks such as answering the telephone, data inputting, data analysis and customer service within this job role. This was working towards my Business Admin Level 3 Apprenticeship.

Busy workplace could be so much better

Days are varied but more often than not enjoyable. The management can sometimes be very unflexible and unapproachable, which is a shame. However they have the makings of a great team. Hardest thing here is having to rely on other people to load your truck. Most enjoyable part was meeting new people and dealing with happy customers.

Substandard

Absolute joke of a company that take no responsibility for their staff, training poor, management unaware of what their job is and how to treat their staff,with this staff always treated and made to feel like you are just replaceable, certain people get treated with more respect, or just generally treated better than everyone else, if the face fits. It has got to be by far the WORST company I have ever had the unfortunate experience to work for. Therefore If you like zero job security, unachievable targets, a culture of fear and working hours where any breaks are frowned upon apply for Turner Price

Pros

Wages on certain jobs.

Cons

Management

Shocking Company, hard to progress in business.

Shocking place to work, the management are useless and only care for themselves or their family working there, impossible to grow in the business and nothing is ever done fairly, wages are never correct each month and when asked to check why have i had deductions they never get back to you.

Pros

the best part of working at turner price is clocking off.

Cons

Poor management, unfair.

Chaos

After working here for many years the company has gone from bad to worse. The management have a couldn't care less attitude - they don't care about staff welfare. They will refuse annual leave for no good reason, they expect you to work every bank hol when clearly it isn't needed. There are many H & S issues, no were near enough cages for picking. Morale is very low, the staff hate the management. No pay rises for pickers but other staff such as drivers/office get increments, which causes friction. New management brought in, who in turn brought his teenage sons in and then replaced experienced managers with his sons. Provide uniform but expect to be wearing it for years as replacements are ordered but never appear. The whole operation as it stands is a complete and utter mess and is getting worse. Do not believe the job adverts about hours, its is false information. The night shift is supposed to finish at 6.30am but it rarely does and the never pay you overtime.

Pros

other warehouse operatives friendly

Cons

unpaid overtime, management, wage, H&s

Fun workplace but no job security

great set of people to work with but no job security. I was told to take some time off from my doctor and turner Price told me to return once fully fit. I returned to find out I had been sacked. The time off was needed so couldn't be helped. Shift was supposed to be 22:00 - 06:30 but never once finished at 06:30 and don't get paid for the extra time due to been on salary

Pros

Good working atmosphere

Cons

Salary, Job Security
