Business Intelligence Manager (Current Employee) – Market Drayton, UK – 28 November 2018
Very political working place, that can bring to wasted efforts and toxic environment High personal visibility with executive level personnel, with high levels of responsibility given also to more junior roles Marketing centered business, with project-management activities led by Marketing
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Telford, Shropshire – 21 January 2019
I chose these over 5 other jobs which are now gone. unfortunately i was in and out of hospital really ill, completely unexpected with a bowel cancer scare awaiting results and having a ridiculous amount of horrible tests, they had all notes and a personal letter off my doctor and decided to release me while I was off. but kept a girl who injured her back on a night out and was off for 2 months just because her mom worked there. No words
Because of how they work out the hours, I earned £1400 less than minimum wage a year. Conditions were awful. Health and safety was a joke Only good thing I can say is that the people I worked with were good.
Franchise Designate (Former Employee) – Cornwall – 11 December 2018
It was 6 years had a franchise, was a nightmare keeping customers, took on more villages to make a decent living but hours were long, quite a lot of rural areas in Cornwall, average 10 hr day 6 nights a week, get a few hours sleep, then count money and go to bank, manager at the time showed no empathy broke down loads of times, would start at 10pm as muller expected us to deliver the last pint by 7am, still had an hours drive back to the depot, Muller w focus too much on what the customer wants, but its the overworked milkman that has to provide the service
IT Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire – 7 November 2018
You're asked to support new tools and systems that were briefed to you a minimum of 4 months prior to its implementation, so when the time comes to help a user you're clueless as to how the system/tool works. You're only shown how things work form a user's perspective, not how you should approach troubleshooting. This becomes particularly difficult at 3AM in the morning whilst on-call and it's almost impossible to contact anyone in 3rd line.
After handing my notice in to Muller, my line manager fell out with me for the remainder of my time at the company. I was completely ignored and even left out of team briefs, despite the fact I still had a few weeks left with the company.
When it comes to salaries, I'm not sure how Muller work this out. People with more experience than myself started on a lesser wage, people with no experience started on a much higher wage. Sometimes this was the difference of £4k
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 26 October 2018
Went for a interview at there Foston site on October 12th. I was not booked in to go on site so a manager passing the gate house had to telephone head office so I could enter the site.
I had the interview, where I was offered the job by the manager there and then. I explained I had to work a week's notice at my current job. He told me in that case to start a week on Monday, and that I would get a phone call from HR in the next 2 hours.
That afternoon I went into work and handed my notice in and went off on a family holiday thinking that when I came back I would be starting on the Monday.
I heard nothing from HR and spent all my holiday chasing them with excuses like " she's not at her desk", "she's working from home today" or " I'll get her to call you back". This has gone on for 2 weeks.
I have now been told I should not of been offered the job because there was not one there.
I would just like to thank Muller for now being employed and now having no money coming in. If they would like to come round and explain why to my 3 children that would be great!
A typical day at work is quite busy and organized. I have learnt the process of having safe milk in our supermarkets. The controls, the quality, and all the tests for consuming milk. It is a busy and stressful environment, always with a nice team that helps when required. The hardest part of the job could be the point to have all the job done on time. It is a good challenge, every day is different. There is no time to be bored.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the tests. You need to know all the different test for each product and I love it.
Bottle supply op (Former Employee) – Trafford Park, Greater Manchester – 11 June 2018
Shocking place to work no English they tell you to go faster. Poor management how don’t seem to give a monkeys apart from watching you all the time and jumping down your throat if your late. Wouldn’t recommend was so ever. I resigned. Horrible place
Dog Walker (Former Employee) – Droitwich – 28 March 2018
Muller is not a good place to work. You are bullied and threatened with disciplinary action for stupid things. The management are hopeless they don't care about employers only their bonuses at end of month. If your face don't fit then they treat you disrespectful.
Muller, has decided to implement work idea without really thinking it through, because middle management are to scared of losing there jobs, how about this all milkman/persons must finish by 7 am not matter what time they start or how far you have to travel, or how many customers you have, this is none negotiable, Not only are we working 10 hours a day 6 days week, driving any where up 90 miles a day 300 drops doing the accounts for each one ,billeddirect debits , doing on line drops,leaving leaflets, starting at before midnight then they want you to finish the last drop by 7 am, this is just under 7 hours, any idiot knows this cannot be done safely, this is working in the dark, they don't care about work life balance for there employees anymore, if you don't like it, then leave. Profit only they don't seem to care,, franchise, milk persons stuck in four year contract not entitled to any holidays, sick pay, 3 months notice if you want to leave, cost you £75 a day if you are off sick, but very different rules for managed rounds not franchise, yet franchise rounds are management bread and butter, but no one cares, anymore, I worked as milk person for over 40 years watched how its changed, I know we have to save this great British tradition of door step delivery, but surely Muller can do this with out forgetting there bread and butter I.e milk persons working ridiculous hours now being told to do it faster 3 hours faster! To do it any quicker would involve speeding, running with glass bottles, keeping this up for 10 hours day six days a week, still would not finish by 7 am totallymore... nuts. If they want 7 am finish then they need to restructure the rounds so every one is equal which is not possible, so which bright nut came up with the rediculous idea that all milk persons much finish a 7 amless
Long hours unreasonable requests, don't hear you, don't care no compromise
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Wakefield – 10 March 2018
Management is very poor they don’t have a clue how to run the business. You get treated like your a baby and spoke to like your back in high school. Management gets to there head same with supervisors, most don’t have a clue what there doing. They complain when they do there walk around when they see abit of milk on the floor when there are posters round the site saying don’t cry over spilt milk. I would avoid working for this company so poorly run and need a long hard look at It i need to get out of here!!!
Ex franchise (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 6 December 2017
Here at milk and more Wolverhampton we have new employees working part time and earning full time wages. It's a complete farce. I had to resign as a franchise roundsman because of falling wages. I do not understand the ethics of this new company. Muller higher management haven't got a clue what is going on at local depots.
