Management talk behind your back, they only think about themselves, providing you with no break if “there’s no time for it” newbies get put on tills every shift instead of expanding training on the shop floor
There would never be time for cleaning (which is really important esp during covid times, pretty gross) management would rather the stock going out then hygiene routines. Management will change your shifts without informing/asking you, and expect you to see this yourself. If management were trained more on mental health maybe they wouldn’t treat their staff like a bit of rubbish on the ground wouldnt reccomend unless there were friendly management
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Management, breaks, shop cleanliness

Good place to work,as with the majority of transport offices you have issues but just turn up and drive and all is good.Start early from 1am but if you don’t like it don’t apply.Training is minimal but ask other drivers and they will help you.Store deliveries,some good quite a few not great but can’t all be perfect
Pros
Discount 15%, salary and hourly rate good, uniform, free canteen, early finish
Cons
Rota isn’t great, management is weak, favouritism of drivers

There are some really nice staff working there, some under pretty awful conditions. As others have mentioned though, they are stuck in a different century, employment wise.

Forget any notion of obtaining work here if you are out of nappies though. The company seems to exclusively hire children to the detriment of anyone older and with more life experience.


The only 'older' staff I have encountered appear to have been there for years, rather than new starters. A truly ageist company if ever I saw one.
Pros
Nothing outstanding.
Cons
Virtually everything.

Keeping it professional and short, the last few months at Farmfoods was terrible, I was treated quite badly. I'm so glad, I'm not associated with that Company. Would not recommend to anyone.

Terrible management. No bonuses they were all cut to save money along with hours and everything else. Shifts would be changed last minute to have you in wether you could do them or not. You would never be sent home early no matter how quiet it was or allowed a 5 minute break unless you were management staff. Everyone spends all their shifts talking about each other behind their back and then behind friends to their face
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Worked for the company 6 years, they treat you like a number, constantly cutting hours, they made 23 million the first week of Covid 19 and still continued to cut hours and give us more work, we were given face shields a few months into the virus, still no till shields and all the masks have now gone and no protection, stores are losing £500+ a week and still no guards, you will hate it here
Pros
Discount, meet good people
Cons
Pay, no guard, no help, no protection

Worst place to work. Staff treat you badly and look down at you like you are a peace of dirt on the ground. I would not recommend working here at all!

Long hours, old fashioned business strategy and staff policies for example only the manager can process refunds or remove items from a transaction. Awful support from HR.

I enjoyed working there however, the lack of security was a concern and left me feeling on edge and vulnerable when working evenings. There was a lot of shoplifting and confrontation.

As a sub contractor for farm foods . I Enjoyed the long runs to Scotland. Free canteen. Hassle free operations. Only real problem is they are on a recruitment drive and don't have regular work for subbys.
Pros
relaxed.
Cons
not enough shifts for subbys

Flexible in terms of hours and the pay is worse than most other stores. Management expect favour after favour but little gets given in return. Didn't like my colleagues to much also,.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Pay is less

If you wanna work for a company that tries to think you are a robot & can’t be made to feel like you are human then this is the job for you - constantly on the tills if you are new to the company to never get a chance to do anything - get moaned at for just going to the toilet
Pros
15% staff discount
Cons
Management & supervisors.
