Most depressing place iv ever worked.
Transport Supervisor (Former Employee) – South Elmsall, West Yorkshire – 21 February 2018
The directors of the business need to get a grip and fast. It's all good and well bragging about record profits, but in reality the most important part of any business, distribution is at breaking point.
The whole transport department has been poorly restructured. Often, you are expected to do 6 peoples jobs. You have transport planners who have no experience in transport and you spend most of the shift taking abuse from the drivers and rectifying their mess. You get an average holiday entitlement on paper, its just a shame you will never get any due to staff shortages. Their more than happy for you to work through your break and dock your wages when you leave early to compensate.
I expected massive things from Next. It was just a job full of false promises right from the word go. I have never worked in a more stressful, depressing, degrading, demoralizing job in my life. Training is extremely poor. You reachly are thrown in the deep end trying to resolve senior management level issues on very poor wages.
You reachly are treated as number.
Getting out with my dignity still intact
I really dont want to write a novel.
