Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 11 August 2018
I really enjoy hard work from manual handling lifting heavy objects and i did 12hr shifts and pedeld 9 miles to work everyday and really need get back into work as soon as possible and looking forward to be working in future companys
Not a good place to work. Don't get a great deal of training before being left to yourself. Hard to ask for help due to language barriers. I left the company due to lack of training and then get a phone call from management asking where I am as not been in work for 2 weeks. Like I say there is no communication at all.
Long shifts and painful on your feet and the boots they supply are no where near suitable so buy your own.
Canteen was good though and some staff were great.
Cheap canteen, some great colleagues
Long hours, unsuitable boots, lack of communication and training
new look is not a great place to work, that is why I am looking to find a new job with more suitable hours, some where closer to where I live and a company that would appreciate the hard work I put in when I am there.
working with some great colleagues and getting payed
I enjoy working here but the hours are not enough.
WAREHOUSE OPERATIVE (Current Employee) – Newcastle-under-Lyme – 8 April 2018
I really enjoyed working in a different aspect of customer service and retail. This gave me another chance to gain some new work experience and knowledge. As there are many New Look stores closing around the globe, this has meant cutbacks in staffing. As I am on agency staffing for New Look Distribution Centre this has meant a dramatic cut back in my hours, meaning I am not doing as many shifts as I would like and am willing to do. I am always keen to do overtime an this, unfortunately, is not an option for me anymore.
Totally un fit dog mess of employers, sack you for anything and cover up bullying by their team management I would recommend you stay away To many covered holidays for management Don't get ill or you will get sacked Get bullied for any disability or your appearance

If u want full time work all year round then no point working here after Xmas they lay most agency off and them who they keep only get 12 to 24 hours aweek for 4 months work load is really high for what u get paid as most staff struggle to hit targets pickers have clocked up 20 miles a day and still can't hit them most team leaders r really good apart from a hand full who r all on 1 shift

Would start at 6am, clock on the machine, work on my work station which I would have being assigned too, carry out all my work duties, sorting and boxing into containers for store shipments. clock of at 6pm ready for the next 12 hour shift.
If you like being treated like piece of trash than it's just a perfect place for you. It was definitely the worst place I've ever worked in and would never want to relive it again. First of all management/ team leaders feel very much above everyone else and treat you like you are their property... Once my packing performance was low so the team leader started shouting at me in front of 60 other people ! You will be doing one thing for 12 hours a day so better get prepared mentally as after a few days you starts to feel like a robot. Great thing is that no-one knows peoples' names and they call you by your number, I guess there is only one other place that did that which cones to mind... Hours are difficult l, but the anount of brakes and "no sitting" rule are worse. Some collegues are great but the others will go to team leaders to tell on you when you for ex. are speaking to your collegue during shift... It's worse than a kindergarden . If you have sny other choice I highly reccommend staying away from this place
Its a brilliant company to work for with great people. the managers help you to make your work life much easier. The shift format is brilliant and you make good progress. a great company if you want to climb the ladder.
Soul destroying. I would rather starve than go back there. Treated like slaves. Horrible hours. Have to go through an evil agency (TRS) to get on, normally they have you for a few months then lay you off so they don't have to give you a contract and just get more people from the job center, really corrupt. Companies like this are what is wrong with the country. If you can work anywhere else, do that, working at newlook warehouse is bad for you, eats away at you inside, it's no kind of life.
none. none at all.
long hours, vile petty managers who all contradict one another and are on a constant power trip, the list is endless
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Newcastle-under-Lyme – 12 June 2017
4 on 4 off 12 hr shifts nights, drained the life out of me. Absolutely mind numbing work. If your face doesn't fit then don't expect to progress up the ranks. Thankless and over aggressive management. not allowed to book holidays over Christmas. depending what shift pattern your on depends what discipline action is taken, days get away with things that nights get disciplined for CONSTANTLY.
The work was easy and training was relevantly easy to pick up.
The management on the other side were always so picky. It is a 24/7-365 days working environment but the bosses (who just push pens and sit drinking tea/coffee always expect the place to be spotless..... You're team would receive a snotty email regards the smallest piece of rubbish on the floor with a photo and basically getting told to sort it!
Also higher ranked colleagues seem to grass you up for the smallest of things so they can get 'brownie' points for doing it.
Also some of the colleagues that work there are so childish its unbelievable, people getting reported and actually losing jobs because of alleged bullying even though it is just strict management when people didnt do the jobs correctly and you are always going back correcting mistakes.

I have learnt how to co-ordinate stock to meet demands for delivery. collate categorize stock. new look is a fast paced warehouse and requires people with speed and dedication to carry out there daily tasks. which I do enjoy as we have lots of fun in the process.
once you achieve your contact, you will be give a discount card after probation period is over allowing you upto 50% off clothes.
getting up at 4am and working till 6pm, extremley heavy lifting on a daily basis.
