If this is the future of employment in this country we are screwed
Unloader (Current Employee) – Hinckley, Leicestershire – 17 February 2020
Where to start? Its hard, fast paced work. This would be ok if it weren't for every other aspect of the job.
Poor money, treated as a disposable worker not as a person, queues at the end of the day (often over 15 minutes and outside in the cold, in what is supposed to be your own time) to get through security. For some reason when they built this multimillion pound state of the art facility they forgot to install a second security scanner...
They will ring you every morning at 9/10am to confirm your shift, which is a lovely wake up call after your 5 hours sleep since going to bed after a night shift at 4am. And if you don't get the call guess what, you won't be working that night. Terrible system.
Avoid if you can.
Some great people here, students, artists, entrepeneurs, the managment doesnt realise how lucky they are. Free parking.
Poor money. Hard graft. Poor agency. Suprisingly bad work/life balance for a warehouse job.
