ideal to gain experience and progress in your career
Sales/Customer Service/Accounts (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 10 August 2017
I have been working for a very long time for JJ Food Service, and although some rumours are that they don't provide good employment I think its rubbish. Everything depends on if you are willing to work hard, are clever and have common sense. Everything else is being provided for you to raise your personal standards and progress in your career. Opportunities are there for those who want them. Loads of training provided to help you along the way and guidance from those on higher levels, flexible working hours for those who need it. Over the years met some brilliant people who are good friends until now. Management in some departments could improve their 'people skills', but lets face it, wherever you go its the same. The grass is always greener on the other side, some say, but know from personal experience that many people do come back or want to, when it doesn't work out elsewhere. Good starter company for those who want to gain experience and knowledge in wholesaling and associated business. It gets tough when it comes to the salary packages in the lower positions (minimum wage, etc) but that is across the market place rather than here only. Office positions are better, but you need to be qualified or have the experience first, again, like everywhere else. Plain and simple- if you work hard and are smart you will get far, like many, many people here.
good work/life balance, job security, loads of help with training and learning courses
lacking a bit in motivating people, some managers need improving
