Appalling Management
Driver (Former Employee) –  Hinckley, Leicestershire14 January 2019
Was a driver in Hinckley and the staff were miserable as constantly messed about by weak management who lie on a daily basis. No organisation and all vans were battered and filthy yet supposed to deliver pharmaceuticals. Young supervisors were promoted either by creeping or having relations with senior management
Pros
Salary good for what you had to do
Cons
Weak management and long hours

Former driver belfast
Driver (Former Employee) –  Belfast, County Antrim2 January 2019
Managements a joke. Two people receive any and every promotion available to drivers one a long standing friend with the transport manager. Treat workers like dirt unfair hours took on more and more work but didn’t allow for more time or manpower. Complaint and concerns aren’t dealt with. Long hours. Six day weeks. No training and when mistakes are made the management poke fun or get rid of drivers. Select few drivers are looked after it’s not what you know it’s who you know culture. Avoid this place.
Pros
Wage
Cons
Management. Hours.

Contracting is bearable
IT Services (Former Employee) –  Chessington, Surrey17 December 2018
It was bearable for a short while, I don't know why people stay and put up with the pressure and bullying nature of some of the management team.
Process and Procedures are out of date and desperately in need of updating, Technology is antiquated and will eventually break down, you can only provide a sticky plaster or cellotape for so long!!!
The workload is horrible and staffing is minimal for the workload. there is an expectation to work above and beyond your normal working hours and that's just to keep up.
Pros
Work Collegues
Cons
Management are shorsighted and clueless

Good place to start to build a career
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Letchworth14 August 2018
Good business to work for although progression within the company is very limited due to a low turnover of management positions. the salary is competitive for general warehouse operative roles.
Pros
Boots discount, good pension scheme
Cons
Salary is not negotiable or competitive with other warehouse environments

meh
Call Center Operative (Former Employee) –  South Normington9 August 2018
Managers are often busy trying to hop on each other for a romp, managers throw staff under the bus and often fire them for their-own mistakes unwilling to take responsibility for something they did or didnt prepare for.
Canteen is brilliant though and wonderful staff who work it, always kind and happy and not expensive.
Pros
Canteen

Dont apply to work here
Pharmaceutical Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Chessington, Surrey31 May 2018
The management go out of their way to make the job difficult and make everybody stressed and make you not want to come into work.. the only good thing about this job is the pay you receive but i would rather earn less and be appreciated then earn a lot and be treated like rubbish without even being able to have a personal lifestyle on top of that!

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Letchworth24 April 2018
You get treated as a drone for this company, nobody really cares about the employees and how hard they work for the deadlines given at times, often overworked and overlooked

Alright as a first time job to gain experience.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  South Normanton, Derbyshire22 March 2018
Not somewhere I would recommend anyone stay. Especially if yoi expect progression (unless you are shown favourtism). You are insignificant and just another number. You are undervalued and your years of service matter none. Benefits and reduced priced sales of stock apply to only the people they deem worthy of or on shift at the time. Knowledge of important information you are supposed to be telepathic if you miss it. Benefits of extra training even when under a redundancy package are not forfilled and the company has regularly seen many people be offered or forced redundancy. Not somewhere you can feel secure in a job role if you need security.
If you just need a little job, that pay is about adverage, to gain experience then this is a great job, but expect extremely late nights/early ams and forced overtime.
Pros
Boots discount
Cons
Long hours of overtime is expected.

hello
Logistics Assistant (Former Employee) –  Provincia di Catania, Sicilia10 March 2018
A typical day in a retail manager job often consists of maintaining a store environment that is a pleasant experience for customers by managing many employees simultaneously. Work begins fairly early in the morning, often before the retail location opens, and an 8- to 10-hour workday begins. Retail managers handle a wide variety of routine tasks, such as writing reports; supervising employees; managing cash; ordering stock; handling schedules, payroll, and marketing and promotional roll-outs; and securing the store upon closing. In addition, a retail manager can expect to deal with customer complaints, employee work delegation, staff shortages, equipment failures and other unexpected things that occur in a retail environment. On average, retail managers may work as many as 50 or more hours per week.
