Management was ok. Training was ok. Opportunities, can be good. Depending on your timing and keeping an ear open. Pay and benefits were ok, however, work rate expectancy greatly increased with your time working there.

Worst job ever.
HGV driver (Former Employee) –  Colnbrook, Berkshire20 September 2019
Been lorry driving for over 30 years and this is the worst place i have ever worked. Trucks are falling to bits and they stop your wages for the smallest thing. Health and safety is for their benefit only. Told not to do something by health and safety and them manager tells you to do it or he will take money off you. They are always looking for drivers. I wonder why?
Pros
None.
Cons
Managers. Lorries. Making rules up to suit them. Depot manger.

HGV Driver class 2 (Former Employee) –  Colnbrook, Berkshire16 September 2019
If i could give this company minus 100, i would.
This company sacked me 2 weeks before surgery, for taking, over the counter pain killers. Grundon waste management are a dodgy company and should be avoided. There always advertising, that say's it all.

Fun and inclusive workplace
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Colnbrook1 August 2019
Going into the role with minimal experience in the marketing industry I had never imagined to have learnt so much in just one year. There was the perfect balance of both in the office working on campaigns and out of the office working with charities. The workplace culture was the perfect mixture of chilled and friendly but everyone was very hardworking and had the same goal of wanting to get the job in hand completed successfully and to the highest standard.
Although I had a round trip of about 4 hours each day, the job and the individuals at the business made it very much worthwhile.
Pros
Amazing team, exciting new challenges, perfect working atmosphere

Shocking.
HGV Driver class 2 (Former Employee) –  Colnbrook.20 April 2019
Worst company I have ever worked for. Dock your wages for the slightest thing. They have their own police force called trainers. Like little Hitlers. Management are all pig ignorant bullies. Avoid. Much better jobs out there. They are worse than BIFFA.
Pros
Work mates
Cons
Bully culture. Poor trucks. Blame culture.

Treated like the rubbish you collect
Driver (Former Employee) –  Beenham, Berkshire5 February 2018
Salary ok and hours ok but by being paid weekly they literally say bye at the drop of a hat. The management are horrendous and make their own rules up as they go along. What's fine one day is a disciplinary the next. Would never reccomend this company not even to my worse enemy.

Terrible place to work
LGV Driver bin collection (Former Employee) –  Colnbrook, Berkshire22 August 2017
If you're looking for HGV work give this place a miss. The organisation from the office is appalling and the level of disdain you receive is horrible. There is no support for drivers you are completely expendable to them. They are constantly recruiting which speaks volumes about a place ! Don't bother with this company they are not worth your time or effort.
Pros
Early start, early finish
Cons
Very unpleasant working environment

stepping stone to admin
General Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Benson, Oxfordshire25 April 2017
A typical day included me assisting the credit control and invoicing teams with their tasks. Assisting as and when needed in the reception desk. Working alongside the office manager to complete various tasks.
Printing and mailing out the monthly invoices and statements.
i learned a lot about the general office environment and how different departments work both alone and alongside each other.
The part I most enjoyed about the job was speaking with customers whether it was regarding general enquiries or assisting on the reception.

Driver (Former Employee) –  Oxfordshire21 October 2016
DIRTY WORK
BAD MANAGEMENT
NOTHING ENJOYABLE
Expectations of this company are unreasonable, you will find out when you want to leave exactly what the HR team are all about. They may take money from your wages without prior permission.
The wages also include a weekly bonus that you may not always get
