Class 2 driver (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 15 September 2017
Overall good place to work. Great place for brand new drivers to gain experience. Majority of the staff- nice and friendly. Lot of heavy lifting involved-so you really need to be fit. New fleet. PPE available on request. The only problem I've noticed is lack of training for the transport office staff. Some of the people defo shouldn't be there with their attitude to the drivers! Also quite often false promises unfortunately....
Drivers Mate (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 31 August 2017
A typical day at work is starting at 6 o'clock in the morning going to a variety of area with the Midlands delivering soft and alcoholic drinks. Our main objective is to unload goods into a customers place of work safely.We use equipment such as pump trucks,ropes,sack trolleys and bump mats to carry out our work. Working for Matthew Clark has taught me how to deal with customers and satisfying their needs under any circumstance. The hardest part about the job is constant lifting I would say but because I have being this job for 5 years I feel totally comfortable. I find it benefits me at the same time as I feel it keeps me fit. I'd say the most enjoyable part of the job is travelling to different cities on a day to day basis.
Customer focused, fast paced contact centre processing orders and supporting external and internal customer enquiries to company deadlines. Sociable and supportive staff and management team with regular product training to ensure excellent customer service is provided.
Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) – Isle of Wight – 11 August 2017
Too much paperwork and hoops to jump through! Instead of allowing sales people to sell they were constantly pulled from one project to another and very rarely allowed to concentrate on what they do well which s sell. They are very good at educating about wine and the companies they work closely with. They had a very tight working environment and you had to do certain tasks daily which were monitored. Keeping up with the tick box exercises and worrying about hitting targets set by head office to monitor sales people. Jollies with our partners were always a highlight within the company and access to sporting events as a reward for hitting sales targets.
Taking and reviewing orders from major leisure chains, Making sure all telesales had completed orders correctly and when not investigate why. The team I worked on was a great team that helped each other when needed
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Shefford – 17 September 2016
A dirty and extremely basic warehouse with hours running from 1pm to the oft ridiculous time of 3:30 or beyond. Plus you are working for free after a certain number of hours a week. Management (if you can call it that) are a complete and utter joke, do not go to this company!!!
They have apparently moved to a new location in Bedford and there are people walking around the warehouse doing nothing and they are still working until after 3 in the morning. What a complete and utter joke. The manager of the warehouse is extremely incompetent and basically clueless.
Drivers Mate (Former Employee) – Shefford – 2 December 2015
The drivers were a friendly bunch and the day to day work ethic was really good, the job was a mixture of physical work and public engagement which is both satisfying and enjoyable. Overall it is a very good job, I hope to return.
