Warehouse Admin (Former Employee) – Burton-On-Trent – 21 December 2017
I applied for an admin role within the Boots warehouse in Burton so obviously I expected a admin role and not to have to be working around lifting heavy items and working with high places (as I am terrified of heights). It turns out it included all of that and that meant I simply could not work there for that long as I was scared half to death and also could not manage all the heavy items.
The people were nice though so there is that if you can handle the stuff I can't :)
Supervisor/Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Burton-On-Trent – 15 December 2017
i would start my day making sure everyone was happy with what they were doing, giving them more training if they needed it. listening out for the tannoy system in case of first aid call out. i sometimes drove i reach truck, sometimes i was in the dispatch office making sure all the trucks had everything on them the needed before giving them the dispatch note. i learnt how to drive a reach and lift truck, gained my first aid certificate and became fire marshall. there were people from all over the world who worked there. the hardest part of the job was saying goodbye to staff after Christmas period. the most enjoyable part was meeting such a variety of people. the management mainly cared about figures and not so much about loyal staff
Boots UK, if you keep your head down, work hard, excell in your area then you wont have a problem, you will learn and progress in different areas and meet new people, but if you go there to chill out or hide away then it's not the job for you, dealing with many types of these people trying to motivate them and keep there spirits up to do the work needed, great place to work and i do miss it alot. As i say though if your intention is to get a easy ride and payout look elsewhere.
Overtime, New Experiences, Flt, Working in large and small teams, learn new skills
Very hot in the summer, Very cold in the winter, Peak times can be stressfull.
Worst place I've ever worked, me and a few other agency workers were constantly picked on and blamed for others mistakes. All the Polish/foreign staff wouldn't speak to you if you were English, only when they were giving you orders, that's why I left. Worst job ever wouldn't put my worst enemy into the company.
I loved working for the work place every day I go in with a smile and big confidence and come out with a smile working in a team and colleagues was very helpful if I didn't understand anything they would help me I worked too my hardest and loved it.
I enjoyed working in the Boots Warehouse because that gave me an insight on how all goods get packaged and delivered. I also learned what it is like to work at a place where it is busy from morning till night. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people on my breaks that were of diverse background to me and it gave me a chance to learn about other peoples cultures and how they live by interacting with different types of people. Furthermore I was astonished by all the machines and technology and felt privileged to have been working there for Christmas temp.
Had to work 5 week pattern shift that did not suit me don't mind working weekends but these shifts all different times.Really good Job working on despatch. This was temporary work and they offered me a Job at the end of Christmas period.
