fast moving
better to be taken on by the company rather than Corrs recruitment as when the work drops you are not going to be working and you don't get any perks.
Pros
free food/drinks pension and health care
Cons
working weekends multi temperature

Wasted a year
I left a job where I was on £34 a year driving rigids and went to work at martin brower on the promise I would get some class1 training, I already had class 1 just no experience, so I was willing to take a pay cut to gain experience, but I started and was straight out in a rigid, I was always being told they were to busy and I’d have to wait, this continued for 11 months, I realised the training was never going to happen so I looked for work elsewhere, I handed my notice in and strangely I was offered training, but by then it was to late, the work is easy but you have to handle dirty cardboard cages and horrible cages with used cups in.

Avoid Heywood
In Heywood you only get job advancement depending on who you know/ are related to.

Salaries don't reflect the responsibilities for each role.


HR ignore any grievances raised and seem to have a high turnover of staff.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Nepotism

Fast pace and energetic
Fast pace and energetic environment, while developing team building skills and managing a team to achieve one goal.
Daily challenges such as unexpected customer volumes and promotions.

Most enjoyable part is when we achieve above expectation.
Pros
Fee lunch allowance

A disappointing experience
Another example of a place where pick rates are calculated by someone who’s probably never worked a day in their life in a warehouse .. completely unrealistic expectations and managers always on your back about it .. avoid !

Very busy company buy good yo work for.
I've been with this company over 10 years now, yes its busy and your kept on your toes all the time, but what I like is the Management, you can approach them with day to day problems and they listen. The other thing is flexibility, you can swap days do short or long if you want they don't mind as long as the trucks get out of the yard on time. The pay is very good, one of the best paid salaries for this type of work. All in all a good all round company to work for.
Pros
Pay, flexibility, good team.
Cons
Probably work life balance if I'm honest
