Office worker (Current Employee) – Midland – 8 April 2018
Plenty of prospect for progression within the Bunzl group, but hard to be recognised and reach personal goals due to poor management and lack of appreciation. External, inexperienced, uninterested and overpaid staff employed for senior roles who are more interested in pointing the blame at other departments rather than focusing on improving their own.
Typical day would be starting early and finishing late, usually working through lunch hour.
Some branches have much better work environments and facilities with better break areas compared to others.
Hardest part of my job is supporting senior staff with day-to-day duties, taking focus away from my own role and duties.
Most enjoyable part of my job is working with my close team who are all extremely supportive and self sufficient.
Sales executive (Current Employee) – London – 17 April 2018
Working for bunzl and the team within my department is most enjoyable. There are lots of enthusiastic team members all who will go out of their way to help each other out to meet both business and personal goals.
There are lots of opportunities and job openings and room to improve if you are ambitious.
The offices are clean and there are spacious break out areas with free drinks machines.
I feel secure in my position working for a plc company.
Staff discounts, share save, internal training programmes and bunzl group discounts via app for holidays, restaurants, food shopping, gym membership and child care.

Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Uk – 31 December 2017
There are plenty of hard workers , making up for the inherent lazy culture of many staff in many positions at most locations. Plenty of own transport yet use fed ex for local deliveries ( drivers decide they must be back by 1pm and dictate what they will do ) Pay is poor and much is expected of you for little or no benefit. Positive is - things are starting to change, Slowly but until all the problem areas are acknowledged change won’t happen. Customers and staff are not important really and long servers are treated to worse contracts than new starters. Especially for sick pay. Shocking really. Share save is good perk- discount isnt as cost prices are inflated so not a good deal.
Free lunch of toast and teas coffee. Share save
Career opportunities are a no go, rather employ externally and on better terms
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Isleworth, Greater London – 27 December 2017
I enjoy working for Bunzl Greenham due to everyday being different with new challenges. The people are what make the business and the company do try their best to recognise this. They have a great training opportunities with e-learning, they even allow you to up skill in an area that’s not relevant to your role.
Great people, enviroment, development, e-learning, business.
Career opportunites as there are few roles and long service within the busienss so little movement.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – London – 14 December 2017
Bunzl Greenham is a fast pace business with a customer centric focus, the demand is led by customer needs so is often unpredictable and everyday is different. Very low level management so always comfortable to pick up the phone to a Director for support and guidance. The best element of the job is the people, great teams working collectively to achieve the goals and customer objectives, great customer relationships too. The company benefits of pension, share shave scheme, healthcare and saving on holidays and in retail shops also very positive financially.
warehouse (Former Employee) – Exeter, Devon – 31 May 2017
poor pay/ poor treatment of staff from top management/ unsafe enviroment/ constant pressure from management whilst they disappear for extented lunch breaks or relax on facebook or surf the internet/ staff told that substantial pay rises are on the way to trick them into pushing their selves to the limit. whats not to love?
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Strood – 22 May 2017
Though they are a big company their training for the job roles required was very under developed and made me personally feel very confused and under valued. Having a split role between sales office and front counter work was at times very over demanding and never really allowed me to sink my teeth into either role.
Employee (Current Employee) – England – 15 May 2017
They employ some great people, but don't have any other plan when things get tough other than making wholesale job cuts. Not a people business at all. Fear of doing anything different, despite old adage of "if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got". Would never advise anyone with ambition or long term employment expectations to work for them.
its a job!
low wages, big expectations, no plan, people are expendable

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ENG – 9 October 2013
I would start work straight away even if I was in early as it was always busy. I learnt many skills mainly how important health and safety was in the work place. I had to take in deliveries, sort customers orders, pack them and send them out, I used computer skills and had to be efficient in my work.It was very busy in the work area so I had to be aware of my work colleagues, making sure that the areas we worked in were kept tidy and we help each other when needed. it was always rewarding when we had loaded the lorries in time and the orders went out on time.
