Nice place to work
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire20 September 2019
Nice place to work, if you keep your head down and ignore everyone. As most people treat the place like a giant playground with no consideration for HS.

Class 2 HGV Driver (Current Employee) –  Harlow11 November 2019
Absolute shambles of a company management couldn’t run a bath let alone a fleet, I was so tired from late days (5am start back at the depot 8:30pm 3 nights in a row) I fell asleep at the wheel driving in to work after telling a manager I was told to go slow and cearful. planners do anything to stitch you up on your route to make your day harder and their day easier, was promised no more than 14 drops and 700 units all in cages swiftly realised that this was a lie and turned into 20 drops and 1000 units. Always promised help and never arrives, ridiculed if you bring drops back you are paid no where near enough for how much stress this job will put you through forget family time forget a social life not gonna happen you have to work bank holidays and over Christmas and can’t book it off either in my eyes place should be shut down

High turn over of drivers. High pressure environment.
Lots of coast driving. Same amount of drops if your local! Some staff looked after more.
Trucks are old.
Long hours
