Been driving for greencore, out of Stonehouse for 11 months now, the honeymoon period is now certainly over, but im still happy in the job, all staff are treated equally, the banter is great, management are respectful of the staff, some aspects of health and safety seem a bit over the top, the vans are reasonably maintained, they could do the decent thing and get rid of the lightfoot rubbish though!
Pros
Happy relaxed environment
Cons
Waiting forever for a van

My shift started at 5, when i got there in morning ,i was asked to assist with loading vans , full shift as this is what "Extra-Driver" need to do untill they think otherwise. Also no training provided or any other form of health &safety on site (1 time ive seen this in last 8y)

Spent over 10h of my life to get his job, they never mentioned about it during the recruitment process. It might ve commonly known driver load theyr own runs but never to work full shift loaders.
Pros
None
Cons
Tight company that use drivers as yard operative

Everybody's shouting at you. When they're not currently shouting at you, they're shouting at somebody else. After few days, you feel your brain starts to shrink. And it's cold.
Pros
Canteen with on-site food
Cons
Cold, constant stress and shouting

Too much expectation for too little reward, salary wise i feel like being in 2005 not 2020. Majority of management and office staff r useless. Bank holidays not paid extra. Avoid, unless you’re desperate.
Pros
Early start, early finish
Cons
Extremely low pay

I worked through agency, every now and then, and only weekend wages are worth all this effort. Weekdays wage is a joke.

Start times differ; you might be needed to start at 3.30am, or 12pm, at least on agency basis. I avoided early starts – firstly, simply because I don’t find it enjoyable to get up at night time, and secondly, because I find the night shift transport office staff unpleasant to deal with, to say the least. It’s quite opposite with the day shift.


Hygiene of many drivers seems to be on a very, very poor level. Interiors of several vans are so repulsive, that on one or two occasions I refused to drive unless they give me another van. As a general rule, I always wear gloves when in contact with a van, and I keep a disinfectant agent handy.


That a van can smell inside, like a homeless person’s lair is one thing. The other is that you can see dried particles and stains of unknown origin everywhere - on the seat, steering wheel, dashboard, windscreen… And often also lots of rubbish left behind.


Technical condition of many older vans leaves much to be desired, but the newest ones are nice.


There is no air con – which becomes a problem, when you are stuck in rush-hour traffic jam. Huge windscreen quickly changes driver’s cab in a greenhouse. Even with windows fully open, you’ll be soaking wet with sweat.


With the major client I have delivered for, you’ll have to load and carry heavy trays all day long. Unless you are a seasoned, full-time driver, having been on the same route many times, your work day will last at least for 11-12 hours. You are

Pros
own boss on the road, very flexible through agency
Cons
long hours, dirty environment, wage

The production day is very varied depending on the volume of production required on any given day.Team work is a key factor to the success as is a good culture and a safe working workplace. Some of the roles can be repetitive but can also be fun with a good team environment.

Started as general operative but ended up getting promotions until I became a manager.
Only complaint was those that had been there a long time had better relationships with the shift manager and thus got away with certain situations other staff would have been disciplined for.

Bullying going off I was paid normal staff rates though I was hygiene, this was higher grade of pay than I received. Even when I was off sick with stress HR manager added to the stress and made it impossible for me to come back. Though I left a while ago now I still think people should know this. To be honest most of people who work there say they're looking for a new job

An absolute joke of a business how it keeps going is only down to good pickers/drivers. Management are hilariously poor they couldn't run a bath.i would do over 8 hrs regulary but get paid for 8 while others do 51/2 hrs but paid for 8 ?? They have just screwed over loyal staff by moving site I would only recommend avoiding here they say u get 29 days holiday u don't I could go on avoid avoid avoid.
