Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 5 January 2018
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.
Stockroom/Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Romford – 17 July 2016
I sorted out jewellery, arranged the price tags and size order of their garments, served customers with their requests, I worked in a team really well and was also very well self-controlled having delighting feedback especially from the older generation. Due to my successful abilities working with this placement, my boss informed my school by writing my great efforts on a report for them.

It's the same thing everyday, it's boring, easy and not exciting.
Once you learn everything, that's it. Carry out work like a robot.
I've been with the company for almost four years, in that time I've seen the company go downhill in performance, quality, teamwork and communication.
There use to be maintenance days every saturday to maintain the machines, but now they are once per season. Because of that the machines keep breaking down, then we are waiting around for ages for the engineers to 'bodge fix it'.
Budget cut's have pretty much ruined the workflow and manangement turn a blind eye to everything that happens in the warehouse.
When the company has inspections, everything untidy gets place into a 40ft wagon, like putting everything under the rug.
I am beside myself and wish to find a better job.
I use to enjoy the job when there was challenges and plenty of work. Now it is 6 hours worth of work mixed with 6 hours waiting on a 12 hour shift. Four night shifts then four days off and then rinse and repeat.
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Newcastle-under-Lyme – 23 March 2016
My day to day duties are picking items of clothing and accessories to complete the orders of customers which have placed online. I've learned many Department throughout the warehouse and become very experienced. My colleagues are very easy to talk to and have been very helpfull when I was a new starter, They helped to train me and I now have very good relationships with each of them. The hardes part of my job is learning a new department but I am a quick learner so it gets easier for me after a couple of hours of doing the job. I enjoy having pick races between my colleagues to see who picks the most in an hour.

Good place to work if you need a lot of free time for your hobbies after you worked hard and earned your weekly money. Though the team leaders i worked with were kinda "dont care" attitude if you ask me. Also didnt offer me perm job after temp like they promise , even if i worked very hard to achieve >75% profficiency and even if i displayed my motivation by working 2 extra shifts every normal shift ... So expect promises to be in vayne.. That aside ill say its an excelent place to work , that if you catch a spot of course.
