First Line Manager (Current Employee) – Doncaster, South Yorkshire – 9 August 2018
I am sure that in the corporation of this scale you could find a good example of supply chain specialists. However I have had an unpleasant experience. First of all lack of investments in people. While people are the strength of the company, here people are unwanted by-product of supply chain. Company always want to earn money however they are rejecting all the ideas of savings that could benefit in the bigger picture. No one is receiving sufficient level of training. People are being dropped in the middle of the projects and by mistakes slowly they are learning or are being swallowed by this Moloch.
Stable employment, regular payments
No development plans, no investing in people, no better benefits than found in newspaper, no good practice, no allowance to find a new way and many more

Operational Control Manager (Former Employee) – Bristol – 4 August 2018
The job was interesting enough, and working from home meant that I could manage my time to my best advantage. It's a shame that my position became redundant and, in a way, made me take early retirement. I feel that I still have something to offer in the workplace, hence my desire for part-time work.
HGV Driver class 1 (Former Employee) – Hebburn – 3 August 2018
Management are useless and if you do a 12 hour day you only get paid 10 hours,overtime payments must be chased up otherwise they forget you've done it,and certain employees can be finished by dinner time whilst most of us are still grafting till well after 5
money was good, shifts were not the best, the team i worked in was good management wasn't the best
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – solihull – 2 August 2018
There wasn't much opportunity to progress as the management kept things limited, money was really good, the system they had in place was good but addressing issues and problems could have been done better, over all i had a good experience there were i came across team work, having to communicate with people from all back grounds, working under pressure but making sure, i worked save and quick, learnt to be able to meet dead lines, and recognise problems and bring them to managements attention
Providing support to customers and customer support specialists in a team. Reporting discrepancies to a supervisor. Updating many electronic and paper files every day. The culture was inflexible work hours and everyone treated the same regardless of performance. Clock watchers, running out the door at 5.30 sharp. Keeping motivated was the hardest thing and trying to work out if I was doing OK, no feedback unless I asked for it. The most enjoyable part was the Customer Service Excellence Course and liaising with customers and suppliers.
the managers are great persons,people there are polite and friendly,i had so much fun working there,and i will miss the place very good place the job to work,and ashley main of the managers great person,kindly and friendly
First Assistant (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 18 July 2018
Management really will be the downfall to this company. From small things such as employee queries to being subject to incorrect payments, management always seemed as clueless as the person seeking help from them.
