Poor management and shift schedule
Customer Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Exeter, Devon13 December 2017
They would make you start earlier than your shift began. Starting at 5am, finishing at or after 2pm. The other shift would be 1pm finishing around 11.30pm. They'd ask you to do overtime the next day after doing a 1-11.30 and expect you to be in at 5. Says its 38hrs but it's actually way more, expect a lot of deliveries to be done and a lot of items to be picked in a short time.

Also the management here is awful. The managers have no organisation amongst themselves and their staff. They also have anger issues, 2 of them in particular were awful for shouting and blaming even though they were in the wrong multiple times with multiple staff members.

If you like being lied to, lots of hours, bad management and poor money then go for it.
Pros
Nice vans, nice staff members.
Cons
Long hours, poor money, bad management, job not as described.

Nightshift
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Basildon, Essex8 December 2017
Worked nightshifts, while the work wasn't hard, the mental toll of working at night and coming home during the day to sleep became a bit much to handle.

It's a good environment. Repetitive work
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Kettering29 November 2017
It's ok. The bosses normally treat us with respect. Sometimes we work under pressure depend on the section you work. But my section A-stock is very quietly and there is a good environment. We don't lifts big items normally so everybody can work not only the strong ones.
Pros
Free cofffe
Cons
Short break

Bad company to work for
Customer Fulfilment Driver (Current Employee) –  Brighton26 November 2017
Bad Company to work for, poor management. No one takes responsibilty. I have not received one payslip since working there,it is impossible to get any sort of time off and very hard to call in sick. management is very corrupt and expect far more from their workers than is required.

Used to be a good company to work for
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Lutterworth, Leicestershire16 November 2017
Since being taken over by Sainsbury's and being run by Wincanton, this company has been run down.
Lack of direction, motivation and support has been widespread over the last 6 months.
All employee benefits removed, targets raised, management disinterested, no buy in from the work force as they are treated like disposable employees.
Shame, as this was a good place and company to work for.
Pros
Wow....can not think of one...oh...local
Cons
Where do i start!!!
