management vary poor, they rather push you out onto your deliveries than listen to any issues you may have and need to talk about. by pass local management if you want to be taken seriously.

And I actually did at HSS.
I cannot tell you in words enough how corrupt this company is. It was probably the worst time of my life and I would not recommend to anyone. The things that go on in this company I don’t even think all is legal. As well as having bullies, manipulation, health and safety issues, poor wages and just a general negative feeling in this company it was probably the most stressed I had ever been.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad management, bullying tactics, poor wages, long hours, full of snakes and perverts.

The management in Northern Ireland are an utter joke. Couldn’t direct pi** into a bucket never mind lead a team!

Loyalty is few and far between! It’s only a matter of time before this company flops!!
Pros
Holidays
Cons
Management, lack of equipment, poor health and safety, lone working, very political

I think the place is great , it’s like a big family. We all help working together with team work always. I work many hours but rewarded in my pay packet every month! Hss is a great place, always remember , what you put in life, that’s what you get! I’ve worked for 21/2 years, really enjoy my job, so if you like driving come and join us at a top company HSS

Dictorial and remote working.

Not clear on instructions and primary leaders are better at other companies I have worked in.


Finance team is disjointed with lack of common purpose and leadership.
Pros
Wfh
Cons

Basically if your a store manager the only thing your in charge of is your own pen
Higher managers have no clue about there job

The people who work the hardest and get no praise are the drivers

Pick another company

2 of you work in a branch ( usually)

If some one is off sick you have to do there shift as well !

I was on my own 6 days a week for over 2 months

Ive been working for HSS for 3 years and all i got back were liars and cheaters within the company. Times when i see managers do fraud and i tell the regional manager and HR they never taken it into consideration. Yet, I then moved to more than 3 stores to avoid that matter, only to find out that most of the store managers do the same thing. so I was sick and tired of it and left the job. I know that HSS hire has potential of making the company better by hiring better colleagues, however, for now it is poor.

Ops manager is fairly new to the role but has absolutely no people skills and only looks good because others work like slaves, work through breaks and break the majority of road safety laws to ensure his targets are hit!
Transport manager is also new to this role but he is alright! Although he could do with some more management training and having abit of a firmer hand with a few of his lazy unreliable drivers, Drivers do what they want and it’s always the same ones who go sick or refuse to work so us other drivers have to carry the slack!

Stock manager is a great guy but nobody knows how he still has a job!

Depot is a complete shambles might as well not have a roof as it leaks so bad! The kit is terrible, outdated and always breaks down so we take the abuse from customers on a daily basis! Vans are always breaking down and takes weeks for an indicator to be fixed! But we still have to drive it! Transport controllers are a great bunch of guys who get a lot of grief from the drivers because some of the routes they give us can be unrealistic to do but they have to do it as they get hammered by the ops manager if they perform bad! Branch staff are extremely rude to drivers and it’s my fault they can’t take an address correctly!! Bunch of clowns! Pay is shocking and ops manager decides what overtime rate he will pay you, you also get docked pay for leaving 15 mins early even if u have worked through your lunch, no early finishes over Xmas holidays on the days we are open if there are 2 jobs you are to stay the whole day sweeping the yard in freezing conditions, NO XMAS SHUTDOWN

HSS could be and used to be such a great place to work but the last 6 months its been a horrible, depressing, stressful and can be an extremely lonely and volatile place to work.

You are pushed to your sanity limits every single day, you get spoken to like absolute filth by fellow colleagues be it drivers or branch staff and even branch managers and ASMs! You have barely any support from your own managers in situations like this too, you are always made out to be the bad guys so the managers can make themselves look like the good guys which is very backward!


You are mistaken for a God and expected to make miracles happen and you can’t say no! You literally have to say yes to everything and with the off chance you do say no it will only be escalated to (BIG NAME DROP) then you HAVE TO DO IT!

you are bombarded with calls from branches every minute of every day chasing deliveries/collections, everything has to be onsite by 9am! even if we are waiting for the kit to reach us. The amount of 07:00-09:00 time windows are ridiculous and impossible to meet, so expect a whole load of abuse and lies from branch staff claiming promises we made the day before!


Nobody within HSS has the same pay structure, Every department including the drivers are paid differently, 3 people who are doing the exact same job could be paid £1000s less then each other, A new drivers starting salary will be more then an experienced driver who has worked with the company for years, you can imagine the tension! “this is the way HSS works and remember you came to us for a job!”

Awful company to work for especially the Southampton branch ... As you’ll see on here they advertise all the time for drivers and that’s because people are leaving very regular

The branch manager is useless claims he cares about his staff yet doesn’t listen to any concerns raised, There is also lots of bullying in the work place hense loss of staff

The Southampton CDC has poor management that do not listen to concerns or offer any additional training like driving assessments. They are very quick to go down the disciplinary route even if you have a small accident all because you cost the company money. They also expect you to do more than is possible and lift equipment that's too heavy for one person. Your also expected to work more than is required and drive vehicles that may not be road legal.
