Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull – 29 January 2018
I started here with the intention of it been a stop gap. 11 years later I was stuck in a rut & finally put out of my misery. If you desperately need a job then this is for you. If you are retired but want some work then this is for you. If you are happy to coast thru life getting absolutely nowhere with no expectations then this is definitely for you. Its a job, you are a number, you earn minimum wage (overtime at the same rate???) regardless of your position unless your management. The only people that get to management here are those that wouldn't survive in any other employment so stay here, stuck in a rut. In 11 years everybody I saw with any promise and intellect quickly left. The big Distribution Centre is the heartbeat of the whole business, problem is it's been on the verge of heart attack since day one. Nobody seems to realise that sorting out the Distribution Centre will trickle thru and have a positive effect on all depots it supplies. The 'not my problem' scenario was made for this place & all depots it delivers to as is 'blind leading the blind'. Nobody is accountable for anything it seems & nobody seems to realise the obvious solution. The management of my old depot tried their best but it always seemed a bit Laurel & Hardy. 90% of the staff in my time there were all good people to get along with, the odd pain in the a but this happens everywhere. As I say, If you are desperate, over 60 or happy to sail thru scraping by this is the place for you. There are lots of better jobs out there, it took me a quick phone call on my way home to find 1.
Minimum wage, same overtime rate, no xmas bonus, radios taken away to save pennies, No backbone. All day Saturday & Good Friday.
Van Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Shrewsbury, Shropshire – 20 February 2018
Enjoyed working here,nice people. I started as a casual driver & then was offered full time. I learnt a lot about car parts & enjoyed getting out & meeting customers. From management to warehouse despatch we worked well as a team.
Manager (Former Employee) – United Kingdom – 20 January 2018
New tools to help improve your own an company goals will only lead to a positive future. The new ownership will only make things stronger. Lots of change will be good to increase profitability for the company. Overall great company to work for just be prepared to work hard as the industry dictates this.
Very fast paced work environment Management were very helpful Staff were brilliant Customer satisfaction that I delivered my best service I learned a lot more about different makes of cars and how they worked. Product knowledge Dealing with irate customers was the hardest part
DELIVERY DRIVER (Former Employee) – Morley – 10 November 2017
I enjoyed working for Andrew page as a whole. I worked for the company for 19 months and really enjoyed the experience. Andrew page is one of the biggest company for delivering car parts nation wide. The parts are always delivered on time and the customers are very friendly. My manager was a super boss and was fair with all his staff. Working for Andrew page made me feel good as I met different customers each day. I can not say there was anything I did not enjoy working for Andrew page as I was satisfied with the hours and pay the staff and the customers and would recommend anyone to apply for a job at Andrew page,
Whilst it’s clear the company have gone through some change in recent years it has always been apparent that the direction and objective is clear. They want to deliver excellent customer service and value those staff who are on board and want to be the best they can be. It’s a shame others who do not share the same vision smear the company due to their own failings.
Telesales (Former Employee) – Bristol, Bristol – 4 October 2017
Awful company to work for. Contstantly worried about job secuirty. Unrealistic sales targets, if you don’t hit them which you wont most of the time they will make you feel worthless and treat you badly.
They threaten you about loosing your job all the time. Please dont bother even going if you have an interview. Just stay well away.
Long hours they will say its 40odd but actually your doing over 50. It is 8am-6pm mon-fri then on saturdays you got to work 8.30-2.30pm. Wage may seem good but is it really for that many hours? Not at all your working for pennies.
Nothing shambles of a buisness
long hours, job secuirty, lowering your self asteem, horrible management
General Assistant (Former Employee) – Bristol, Bristol – 27 August 2017
started as a van driver at the old camberley auto factors that was the good days.was there for 8 years and it gradually went downhill.full of backstabbers and bullies at every level from management to drivers.would recommend to STAY AWAY
Driver (Former Employee) – Northampton, Northamptonshire – 1 August 2017
Lack of communication, poor management ,no flexibility, treat drivers as lowest of the low, the pay isn't very good. The boss at the branch was really unmotivated and ungrateful of everyone's efforts. If you like being treated like dirt from management / customers this is the job for you. This should be a great job but its not.
WAS a delivery driver but after the buyout from Lkq/Ecp the company has become even more of a joke! Management at branch is a joke. I have been made redundant along with other staff.....stay away from this company. Your worst nightmare!!!
IT Support (Former Employee) – Leeds – 30 June 2017
Most of the daily ritual was quite monotonous,working on an in house cataloguing system which involved,by its very nature,skills which were non transferable. The help desk calls could be engrossing but were infrequent. The style of management could be quite divisive and seemed to have evolved rather than been planned. Did learn through the vehicle parts cataloguing,patience,accuracy and thoroughness. Hardest part being solely desk based and the best part the company of office colleagues.
No real pay structure. Old company practices in what had become a sizeable organisation.
