Good if you urgently need money
Stower (Former Employee) – Rugeley, Staffordshire – 20 January 2018
-I worked Oct-Dec, the worst workplace I ever worked in. Workers are treated like slaves who can’t make any human errors.
-I was working as a stower always having a productivity of 125% with few human errors which cannot be avoided in such environment, lacking of space and support from management.
-I felt disrespected and disgusted on how the agency workers chase you after even going to the toilet asking why haven’t you been stowing for that time you’ve been in the toilet. All the bathrooms are down the stairs! It takes about 10min to get from your working area eg; 4th floor to the bathroom and another 10 to get back upstairs, explaining yourself why you haven’t scanned anything during that time.
-Temporary workers are purposely put in areas where there’s no space so they can be kicked out of the workplace.
- For the amount of hard work you have to do you are not paid enough, I have been paid more for easier work elsewhere!
- Amazon doesn’t pay for your transport (£4) both ways every day so £7.65/h minus £4 for your transfer, not worth!!!
- I got kicked out few days before Xmas which I didn’t mind as I got another job straight away and I’m much happier with the environment.
-You have no option of overtime, if the put you on overtime you have to work whether you like it or not! With only 1h break for 11hrs of hard work
Good security, hours of working if needed
Long hours, 1h break for 11hrs of work, not enough pay for that amount of work, transfer costs, slavery, disrespect from agency
