Not valued just an apprentice
As an apprentice given basic training, constantly pressured to meet bonuses.
Loved the job did nine months no time off, never had any problems one accident following advice on how to get quicker on FLT by a manager and permanent staff. Followed procedure admitted I had gone to fast but lost my job.
A health and safety issue that had no health and safety officer present and took 14 minutes to investigate with me.
A permanent member of staff who was involved got given a payment, union said it was to keep quiet about the incident.
The trucks were also slowed down with speed restrictiors the following day.
Up until then I had loved my job and saw a future with Blakemores as did my manager.
BUT BEWARE AS AN APPRENTICE YOU ARE NOT VALUED AND DEFINITELY GET NO SUPPORT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG. GET RID AND EMPLOY ANOTHER!!!!!!...
