horrible

if you enjoy being treated like a slave you will definitely enjoy working at yodel. Also if you are looking for back pain (both long and short term) Yodel can help you achieve this.

Worst place to work

They are happy to cut your hours back to the point you have to sign on. VERY HAPPY TO CUT BACK ON YOUR BRAKES IF YOUR AGENCY and making you do even more work for less money. now we not getting any brakes at all now and having to watch the permanent worker go on brakes. Having to cover for them as they get their 3 brakes per day.

okay, but can be better because I needed the money and management was not always fair, could have treated people better and more fairly, long shifts which were hard sometimes

Unpleasant experience

Worked here for 2 weeks and all I can say is that it s the worst job I ve had since I ve start working in the Uk (and I had a lots of jobs) . It s a form of modern slavery , exhausting work , poor management , and the pay is awfull comparing to the amount of effort you put in . Don t come near it unless you re desperate /without any other job option.

Great place to work, worst recruitment agency ever!

Decent place to work, hard graft but get used to it, good work colleague's can have a laugh lots of nice people, some not but that's in every job I suppose, pay is just normal minimum wage, the worst thing about it is not the job itself its the recruitment agency who employs you called workforce or people solutions or many other names they have had in the past. Took over 4 months ago and STILL cannot pay people correctly...either just missing shifts off completely or literally all your hours worked, miss holiday pays, they don't text or call people to tell them they are in work the next day or not then don't answer their phones when trying to find out, its one big massive con after they took over and got us all transferred 2 months later we all received an email again welcoming us as new employee our job description rate of pay location etc...as though we where all new starters again...something definitely wrong there like some tax dodge or gaining some kind of monetary benefit there's so many bad things there's too many to mention, they are the most incompetent, unprofessional agency I've ever been employed by oh and also have Swedish contracts for us so if you google it it means they don't have to give you the same benefits as they would if we had UK contracts... We all get treated different by giving some people 5 days a week work and then others only 1 and 2 days work as there is no other reason for it we all do the same job so why do some get more hours and some get hardly any but they say its all worked out fair! Stay away if you know whats good for you! Unless your employed - 

Pros

Friendly colleagues, good management, canteen

Cons

Agency called people solutions - avoid avoid avoid

Okay job but very low pay

Worked here on nights for minimum wage, job was simple but very low pay for nights. Management and team around are very nice but would not be able to recommend due to pay being so low 7.20ph for night

Pros

Colleagues and people

Cons

low pay, anti social hours

productive workplace

is a good place to work with some great people to work wit. but when I started I was lied to about my salary and ended up getting less than what I had originally signed up for so make sure you ask lots of questions about salary.

Pros

nice guys

Cons

slight unorganisation

Unfair practices

False advertising of positions used for peak times then disposed of. Male management seem to be fair but directed by ops manager and depot manager. None management but long timers bark orders and discriminating remarks when down to own lacking abilities to work. Bullying for & £8.25 an hour and working without a break to have a drink.

Pros

Some nice colleagues

Cons

No appreciation, no breaks, overtime paid at flat rate.

fun, hygenic, great personalities

i had a great time working for Shell as i had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people and make friends. I never had a problem with the workplace or its employees and i have to say the salary was good as well. However it was tiring on legs when standing for long hours however beside that its perfect.

Pros

salary, Hygiene, friendly Staff

Cons

Standing for long hours.

requires a serious shake up

needs much better management structure and more bodies to keep a smooth running pace and the level they require jobs to be done. start time is also very unsociable hours for a "nightshift" 2am start

Pros

decent canteen facilities

Cons

long hours, poor pay
