HGV Class 1 Driver (Current Employee) –  Whitchurch, Shropshire5 June 2019
I've found Agro to be a warm and friendly environment in which to work, and as a new driver, I was allocated a mentor when I started which I found to be a great help, both in terms of building skills and gaining confidence in general. the management side have also been very helpful. Be prepared for long hours, but I think the wages reflect this.
Pros
great for recently qualified drivers.
Cons
long hours.

Driver (Former Employee) –  Whitchurch, Shropshire4 June 2019
Blatant disregard for H+S , legal compliance and employment law .Who needs an O licence anyway ? Not on my watch , I'm unaware ,all the key phrases you will hear while working all the hours God sends to try and obtain minimum wage ........avoid unless your filming a fly on the wall documentary on Dickensian work houses then buckle up in your Tardis and hold tight because your going back 150 years .
Pros
Zero
Cons
Not enough space to write about it

Funny how all reviews so far have come from office staff . Amazing that !!! Place will never change , poor pay , long hours , fast paced yes and yes they like it that way but if you slip up the buck always stops at the bottom of the ladder , management , office staff are never to blame . If you fancy being a number , always replaceable , to be poorly treated , management is a total joke and will never change

Office staff (Current Employee) –  Whitchurch, Shropshire10 May 2019
I have been with AGRO Merchants Whitchurch for 8 years now, the business has provided lots support and development oppurtunities for myself.

The business has strong team of staff, who all have high levels of drive, which is highly motivating to work with.

You need to be prepared for challenges of the face paced industry we operate in, however, there is lots of satisfaction to get out of supporting both our internal and external customers.

A career move well worth making - the business is always growing/developing in the right direction.
Pros
Great people to work with.
Cons
You have to be ready for the next challenge all the time..
