Worked at Foston warehouse via an agency and I can’t express how well run the place was and how brilliantly you are trained. The warehouse controller is on the boil and everyone on my shift (last shift was 10pm till 6am tonight 5th June)

Everyone on the shift acted as a team and went out of their way to help me when they saw me falling behind or struggling and I would work there at a drop of a hat

Good company to work for be your own boss when your out and about, delivery chilled/frozen foods in temperature controlled lorries (18/26 tons).
8/12 drops per day with a support system in place if you get into any problems on the road/route.


Health & Safety at all time one way system for lorries.


Uniform supplied after 3 months probation and a welcome pack.


Unfortunate that the union is on the weak side and dose not really listen to its workers other than that, if you don't mind hard work you enjoy it.
Pros
Good Salary, Support Team, Pre-loaded Lorries
Cons
Long Hours with or without drivers mate, Weak Union. Unload lorry end of day

Management obsessed with targets when it is not even necessary. You are asked the impossible in minus 40 freezer and in that cold it is exhausting. Managers don't understand what they are asking as they have never done it, and indeed could never do what they ask.
Only skinny people work there, unless managers.

It is difficult to describe a typical day. One day you could be dealing with a significant incident the next looking at the performance of sites against policy. No 2 days were the same. The role was interesting and the results achieved over the years are excellent.
Pros
Great team
Cons
Long hours

A typical day at work for a picker/packer involves packing stock, shifting boxes etc. Can be hard physical labour but doable work. Work environment is okay.

It was a great place to work, the team I worked with was what made it a great environment. The management however were against us not with us, some bullying from certain management was common practice, so a back bone and voice are key for anyone who is going to work full time. The agency workers are treated so poorly. Management has changed now I believe,so the culture may be better.

I don't really know much about other sites, I can only say that where I work, integrity, intellectual competence and outstanding personality are missing in most levels of management. The result of this is superiors are manipulative, ensuring those who may be better qualified for positions are ignored and denied every opportunity to fulfil their potentials.
The leadership is such that encourages making more followers rather than leaders, which is where I have issues with the organisation. the organisation / management are limited and restrictive in their staff development goals. The idea that anyone who is ambitious and not loyal to a manager has to leave if he is to fulfil his dreams is very wrong. Opportunities are restricted to a few people close to management. A systematic DISCRIMINATION achieved in diverse ways.

Absolutely shocking from top management down to shift managers they really don't care about you or anybody as long as the pick rate and pallets moves are booming .
If you wanted to be treated like a piece of dog pop go and work for these you fit right in ..shift managers are false and two faced .. discipline heaven here at sutton in ashfield ..

The job role is easy but shift management lacking in man management.
No one takes responsibility. Vehicles well past their sell by date. ( Waitrose have control over this.) Brake down on a regular basis.

Management promotions given to sycophants experience and ability
not taken into account causing tensions between experienced operatives and sycophantic management.
