Slave work
Process Worker (Current Employee) –  Burnley, Lancashire20 June 2018
They treat you like slaves.
Your allowed to take a bottle of water on with you but won’t allow you to go and fill it up.
When we had induction we was told on nights your get 2x15minutes and 1x30mina. Turns out you get 2x30mins. On your first day they are expecting you to hit their targets. No praise from management about how well you have managed on your first day just constant putting you down.
Wouldn’t recommend working here.
Pros
None
Cons
Management treat you like slaves!

Good job
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Burnley, Lancashire17 March 2018
The work was pretty fine. Some positions were more demanding other less. It worked three days after twelve hours and three days off. I had time to rest. I walked a lot of kilometers on picking because the building had up to five floors
Pros
A nice new dining room, Stable work
Cons
Long hours, Many floors

Classroom Environment - Micro-management
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Burnley7 March 2018
The work is easy - but the management is very biased and corrupt. Progression and extra opportunities are only given to those who know the managers on a personal level, and even they are very very basic. There is frequent lack of communication between management which causes a lot of conflict across teams. The environment is not very professional. If you are in probation, you can come in to work and be sacked on the same day without any notice. Preference is given to daytime staff as opposed to evening staff. Rules constantly change to suit the individual in charge. If you have any issues and raise a grievance, you will suffer from detriments after this - the management frequently lie to cover up mistakes they have made and make the employee to be problematic. A good progressive company, but the wrong style of overall contact centre management. Zero job satisfaction - resulting in poor performance from employees. If you choose to work here, be sure to have a solicitor on standby.
Pros
Good working equipment
Cons
Micro management, no progression, classroom environment

good atmosphere
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Burnley7 February 2018
It was long hours but as you were always busy the time flew by
good people to work with you can have a laugh and a joke while working
there is a good incentive of a 40% staff discount
but the draw back is it was a zero hour contract when I was there
Pros
40% staff discount
Cons
Zero hour Contract

Boring
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  United Kingdom12 January 2018
The training and the job was boring, and the team leaders hardly did anything.

Some were only nice to the advisers they liked, and they would still expect you to work if you're ill. Some don't even allow you to talk to your friends whilst your working and the only good thing was making new friends.

Also you don't get double pay or time and a half for bank holidays & xmas etc. They're also not understanding when it comes to changing shifts.

You only get an hour break for the 8 hours you work, but you can split it in to 2 15 min & one 30 min break or you can have two 30 min breaks.

You also have to work weekends
Pros
40% off staff discount
Cons
Long hours

Fun and enjoyable work
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Burnley24 December 2017
I was working in a warehouse where all the plastic things are made which are provided through out the whole UK. I learnt about how all the stuff is packed after counting properly and sealed properly. work place culture was really good, people there were really friendly and helpful. Honestly speaking, i did not find anything hard about that job. The most enjoyable part was that I got to choose the way i work and when i take my break, it was so amazing working there that it felt like a family to be a part of that warehouse.

Warehouse operative
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Burnley, Lancashire6 December 2017
Worst company ever. Target driven madness. Even if you are working your back off they still want more more more
They ask for the work of someone on £13per hour whilst only paying bare minimum. A very cheap and tacky company. Avoid at all costs
Pros
Absolutely nothing

Bad working conditions
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Burnley, Lancashire3 November 2017
12 hour shifts, that you cannot change unless you go into part time. No proper lockers, need to bring your own locks. Not enough seats in the canteen. No cafeteria. No places to sit down on when you're dressing up. Nonsense hourly targets. Terrible malfunctioning equipment (elevators, clock in/out devices, vending machines, scanners, etc). The free safety boots they provide are designed to make you feel agony.

Poor Company ran by team leaders and management not Director
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Burnley, Lancashire1 November 2017
If you don't fit the bill don't expect to last no more than 6 months here. If you do, you will be promoted in no time. Poor company, very poor management. Or if you have a family or friends who work their, you will get places. The director only visits now and again, and everything is a big act for the day he arrives. The team leaders have targets that they want to fire. The place thrives off, institutional racism, but this is only in the Burnley offices.
Pros
The location
Cons
Everything, apart from some colleagues.
