Can't fault the people I worked at the coal face with, great people, the job was ruined by the complete ineptitude of upper management & their petty in fighting, childhish at times.
Horrendous hours, don't ask about over time, never get any brakes, just constantly work all day, no thanks at all.

If you make a mistake, expect to be relentlessly beaten over the head with it.

The worst company in the world to work for , avoid this company at all costs unless you enjoy working all hours of the day for no extra pay or thanks. Staff levels at each branch are shockingly low , they pay people off for fun , don’t expect a lunch break because you don’t get one , constantly hammered from upper management to try and achieve unachievable targets AVOID AVOID AVOID HORRIBLE COMPANY

None

Did some Agency work for them .
Nice colleagues, but the workload was crazy. Very long days . Do your round twice, which unless you drove very fast , you wouldn't make it around.

I lasted for 3 days . That said , to be fair 1 or 2 lads enjoyed it. Personally it was too much for me. Can't comment on Management, as didn't really see them .

Bad management/work people no life because they told you to work for 12 hours a day for 5 day and told to work Sunday’s if your face doesn’t fit then they got rid of you and you had to do 5 people jobs a day because they had no one to help you and the managers always slaged you of

Horrendously managed. Head office at alliance haven’t got a clue how to run a business properly as other reviews show. People leaving left right and centre due to being unhappy, overworked and obviously underpaid. Head office as well as branch management are figure chasers and they expect everything for nothing and don’t care about the wellbeing of the staff.

Be prepared to be treated as a number. Don’t expect any pay increase. Don’t expect job satisfaction.

Trained to use system Autopart MAM and placed with team of myself and one other. Workshop Pro became part of the job role so running to companies as one. Long day from 8am to 5pm and 30 min lunch and very busy and quiet stressful. Often left to run dept solely whilst team members attended meetings, training or shows but had a great team with reps who were very supportive and helpful.
Found it difficult to leave as enjoyed time spent with company and made a lot of friends. My first large corporate company to work for, learnt a lot and enjoyed my time there.

Having joined a few months ago I can say with confidence that the work culture and employee engagement is a key component to the way this business works and this supports both the business and its people. This is a business that is growing and you can see the support functions growing to enable this, this alone will generate advancement for those with the ability and desire to progress.

I would suggest to avoid this company they look after the better paid people by giving them extra incentives to stay and then put more workload onto everyone else then slate you all when mistakes happen due to running things day to day with a skeleton crew constantly working never have enough time for home life no sign of progression anywhere all drivers and warehouse staff are great but too much pressure and workload on them all

Joined from another large motor factor and am really enjoying the different culture with great support from both peers and management.
This company have a strategy that works, with the right work ethic the company encourages its employee's to thrive and grow with it. Great tools to use, probably the best in the market place. Day 1 and everything was ready for me, laptop, logins, phone etc... this is normally the most painful part of starting a new job in this trade!

Work hard and you will be rewarded, good bonus scheme which is easy to understand with no silly caveats.

Very impressed so far and have been made to feel an important part of the team even during my induction, which by the way was planned out from day 1 and really helped me integrate with the whole team across the whole south west.

They will exploit you and take all the credit for your hard work. No breaks from eight a.m. to five-thirty p.m. and if you ask for help, well, don't expect anything but a disgusted response.

Worst working experience ever; no support, no fun. You'll be expected to do hours over your contract and you won't be paid for them.


Most enjoyable part ? Finding employment elsewhere where one is appreciated.

I worked as a casual driver for nearly 6 months and received regular work from them. The management and office team were always professional, helpful and friendly and always showed gratitude for your work. The other drivers were also great to get on with and worked well as a team. A typical day would be helping to put stock away, pick orders and make sure they are second checked and then deliver products to their required destination.Lunch break was as and when but always got half an hour. Good place to work for and would recommend.

When coming into Alliance Automotive Group, I was exited to start as there is broad career developments throughout the company and the offer of learning new things.

Would highly recommend for someone who is looking to progress their career and work for a great company.

I worked for a company before Alliance automotive took over. Awfully unorganised, your just a number, management have no interest on you. Lay people off left right and centre, put more and more on you. Like working in a school playground. Never work for such a bad company.

… management are highly strung and if you get some of them at the wrong time you will get your head bitten off. There isn't any career progression and it feel like a job rather then a career.
Pros
great team mates
Cons

Waste of time, too many people with big titles that do not have a clue on the day to day running of a business, loose too many sales as you have to ask 5 people before you get a answer, put terms on customer accounts and put them up days later so you are always firefighting and nobody listens to what you say, run the branches below staff and expect the world
Pros
People in branch
Cons
Anybody from area manager upto ceo
