It was very busy almost every day. I had to deal with a lot of phone calls, emails. At the same time solve problems by contacting with production and transport departments. However it was great experience , I learned a lot.Manager was helpful.
Pros
good team, free drinks
Cons
stressful job (so many things have to do at the same time)

work load is constantly changing and you are demanded to do other peoples work. the transport supervisors are possibly the most un-qualified people I have ever met, monkeys can do a better job. disciplinary's are given out like sweets for any reason such as taking breaks. then changing it at the meeting to been un-productive. they make changes to your contract without consent such as all breaks unpaid and job and finish removed without notice or appeal. and if you stand up for yourself they will finish you on the spot saying your been aggressive. GM does not care about his staff and there health as he is more interested that the work is done and the numbers match. this company in the past 2 years has became one of the worst company's I have ever seen in my working life. and yes this review is me this time
Pros
finishing work every day
Cons
working hours, work load, management, start times - finish times, poor pay for work expected

Treated unfairly, working on miminal manpower doing the job of 3 people, Working with damaged cages to transport linen, thats if you can find one. Get put on one job then swapped round at no notice with little to no training, expecting you to keep up with the quota. You never know from day to day how many hours you will work. You can turn up for work and only end up doing 3 hours work that day and only get paid for those hours. No body listen or care.
Pros
Getting a break and going home.
Cons
Never know how many hours you will get paid for that day.

Was a great company to work for at the beginning 8mths... Then a change of transport manager and company taken over and it was dire... Got very clicky and if your face didn't fit you was bullied out. Took another colleague to frame me to finally get me out of the door!
Pros
20p for a coffee is fair price.
Cons
Stressful place to be and management is a joke at all levels.

I enjoyed working at Elis but unfortunately staff have been laid off due to the current crisis. My experience with the company was great from start to finish, and in my short time there I felt respected and I learnt a lot.

I really enjoyed my time and the people I worked with. It was only a temporary position but I am hoping something more permanent will come up. The pace was fast but everybody worked well together.

Very long working hours Very rude management, especially "middle-management" who think they know it all, but actually have never driven a lorry or worked in a customer service environment before. Poor pay with forced overtime at basic rate Not valued as a person

Just horrible place to work, management are rude and aggressive and a there's a real blame culture and no flexibility with hours to help with personal commitments. Job was easy but the place is cold, drafts and I'm really surprised they haven't been shut down due to the work environment-bodged staircases, leaks above electric equipment, when puddles form on the floor they think putting a mat over it is sufficient!
Pros
Nice collegues
Cons
Be prepared to be sacked for no reason or one mistake in your training period

Management are dreadful. Felt more like being in prison. Had only a 10min break and had to get to 1 side of the factory to the canteen, go to the toilet and all within that 10mins. Absolutely dreadful.
Pros
Met some great lifelong friends there! About 40 of us all left in the same week to work elsewhere.
Cons
Just dreadful!!
