worst company I have ever worked for. No communication management have no respect for drivers or vehicles. Certain drivers smoke in cabs, leave their rubbish and do not clean vehicles. As a driver you are salaried and if you do maximum hours pay is below national wage.
Pros
None
Cons
too many to mention

i enjoyed working at cml it was fun and target based it was also a friendly environment every was nice even the supervisors.

the hardest part pf the job was keeping up with the targets however was a team based job and needed more careful consideration as to how they conducted their teams.

This working place management need learning stop discriminated others peopls, need respect others, for boss need learning stop be rude, same how in management. Horrible working place, with lot of gossip peopls. Why there all the time looking stuff, because there is bad stuff, peopls who's working hard left this job, but there likes keep lazy peopls. Peopls think , before applying this vacancies, that's money what they pay, is not worth it. We can get there only headache , discrimation, and some rude things what you need listening about your privet life , and they don't have shame asking about your sex life. Two times thinking , before go to this working place.
Pros
Some nice persons
Cons
Attitude

Terrible job, get treated with no respect, people only notice what you do wrong compared to how hard you work, I was working there for 6 years and was only being payed £1 above minimum wage. Always being stressed because the managers can’t do their job properly, managers were telling us to do things that were against company policy. Employed literally anyone, people who didn’t speak any English so we couldn’t train them to do the every day job.
Pros
4 days off a week.
Cons
Long hours, poor management, cold temperatures, poor treatment.

Nasty management. Don't treat you fairly.
Horrible, back breaking work that just isn't worth the £8.80 (nights)

A dodgy workplace. There are so many requirements to follow, but when you have a tiny inquiry, you're sent home.

Be careful about who you confide in, as everyone else is in it for themselves.

This company is an actual joke. Save yourself the anger and time.
Pros
Cant think of anything
Cons
Really long hours, horrible staff and management

This all true and i don't lie . there was no real training when i started but after a month they started to train new staff that wen't the company and not the agency. you are expected work in a cold environment with gloves are no good for the job and the management are rude and just a waist time. you have two team leaders that are very rude lazy . on a daily basis what they call banter i would call bullying . all in all CML is by far the worst company i have ever worked for oh and if you don't wan't to work Christmas day then don't work for them and and in November to December you you cannot take any holidays and at 7.50 hour is a poor wage for the hours you do .
Pros
none
Cons
bad management / poor wage / and rude staff

Typical day at work was everyday the same. We came to work, managment were do meetings to tell as what we have to do.

I learned how to pic by order, how to using aisles, how to check order is correct (scanning) , how to pic by cartons (picing large ammounts of order), hanging etc.


The hardest part of my job was carrying boxes two man lift, the rest of boxes was not so bad :) .


The most enjoyable part of my job was teamwork.
Cons
Work 5 nights per 10 h on 2 days free.

I do not want to work here because it is too far from the city ( Leicester ) , and labor is physically too heavy for a woman!
I want to gain more experience in health , because it will be my job in the future !!!
