a typical day at work would involve emptying between 5 to 7 containers of customers goods. on backshift we would be loading vans and picking customer orders.
i learned the importance of many warehouse procedures that i had not done before.

the squads that you wok with are good the people that you work beside are friendly and the moral in it is normally high.
Pros
25% discount

Transport office in this place don't have a clue, drivers have no back up from them even when (regularly) placed in positions of danger due to irate customers losing the plot. Have to get the vehicles repaired in your own time, often have to work in excess of 14 hours per day, vehicles are old and decrepit, at least 3 break down every day. Driving rota is never fairly done with the same five or six guys never doing sofas and always finished before 3 o'clock while the rest of us have to work until at least 7 o'clock every night after starting at 6 am. No training whatsoever just chucked a set of keys and told to get on with it. Guy who hands out keys in the morning is so incredibly rude I'm surprised he's not had his nose broken or worse, but his day will come. Don't ever go off sick or take holidays because you'll pay for it when you get back. And if you try and raise any points or try to get the company's grievance procedure put in place you get the universal answer " just get it f@#%ing done". Save yourself and go on the dole you'll have more pride in yourself than working for this shower.

Terrible place to work just because of the office staff, they don't care what u have to do, what laws u have to break etc,as long as u get the deliveries out. And if they dont like u then life will be terrible working long hours and crazy shifts and still getting paid the same as the blue eyed boys that do half as much and don't ever take a holiday or a day off cause when u come back they'll make u pay for it. I could rant all day about them and anybody who has worked there will tell u the exact same.

Boss is completely unfair. His 2nd in command thinks he is still in the army and is completely unfair aswell and his training is 'just sign all this so we can get home'. The office crew are useless. If your face don't fit your life will made hard, rota not done fairly. The blue eyed boys never do sofa's, never do relief driver duties. If you are friendly to any of the bad boy list you'll end up on it too. I went out with people who were so rude to customers it was embarrassing. Keep away.

6am start most days not in before 6pm any day.
Not paid for hours worked. 12 drops plus per day and driving long distance most days without second driver.

Then complete drops. Only 2 man team .no worth the hassle. Not always paid driver bonus . No in house training given . Just forms to sign . Get your keys and go. NOT GOOD LOOK ELSE WHERE.

The General Manager is a bully unless you are one of the old boys. They gat all the good runs an back in yard for 3pm and they only do beds which are easy. the rest are out for 12 hours plus and that is just because of workload and planning. If you get along with some one who is on the GM's hate list then you are in for it aswell and you'll be on sofas all the time. The other Transport thinks he's still in the army and doesn't know how to treat people. He does the days training which is pathetic because all he gets you to do is sign this and sign that with no training at all. The rest of the office staff haven't a clue about transport and the job itself out on the road, 1 in particular who is so rude and smug and pretends he's injured. If you like to be bullied and treated like dirt then apply away.
