A once family style ran business now designed and developed around the profite margins and making 20 million by 2020 at any cost.
Staff are demoralised, tired, and unhappy. Vastly experienced staff are leaving without the slightest hindrance and replacing them has proven difficult due to the duties and wages being massively out of touch with today's market leaders.

Poor management has wasted company funds which again has been recovered by offering no pay increase to the dedicated or imprisoned staff.

Unfortunately the systems used and procedures they follow are heavy opposing magnets that slow you down and work against you with management giving no quarter for error within an environment riddled with issues.

The majority of people are decent and easy to get on with but are often stressed and unable to help.

All in all the company has much to offer but at this moment in time your entering dark tunnels with no lights at the end of any, hopefully someone will find the light switch soon.
Pros
Company discounts at various locations.
Cons
Poor training, development, communications, leadership, wages.

Very bad place to work for. Lack of help from management team only one thing is important for them. How to use and abuse the working stuff because the targets is so hard to achive. I'm not recomend this place to my worst enemy.

Back in the day when we were owned by Northern Foods it was a tough but fair job. You worked hard and the pay was decent. You also had a good relationship and rubbed along well with the majority of your managers.

Unfortunately, things changed after the buyout. Targets became unrealistic. Old staff who worked under better contracts then new starters were continually harrassed and bullied by a management that were happy to see them leave, so as to employ cheaper Labour under inferior contracts.


All in all it changed from a good job to a living nightmare. The day I left I felt an overwhelming feeling of relief . My wife even commented on the all round change in my demeanor and was as happy as I was that I had left this living Hades.
Pros
Under the present regime there are none.
Cons
Extreme work targets and a culture of harassment and bullying from management.

The job it’s self is easy. Apart from Lidl and Aldi. Aldi tip yourself ok
Lidl tip a full load and split pallets down yourself I had 20 pallets ended up with 41 pallets. Management hassle you non- stop. Pay is rubbish £115 a day shift start from 9pm- 8am 18 days holiday a year. Trailers are dustbins on wheels and same units are nice but 85% are skips full of dirty rubbish . Been there a month broken down 3-4 times run you to the max . Avoid honestly. It’s ok for a stop gap. You run RDC to RDC manly oh you never have the same unit twice. Beds are broken and dirty. A lot of stains on bed.
Pros
Easy job to RDC
Cons
Management, wage, trucks long hours.

Poor management, they don't look after yourself. Been there for a year without a proper PPE that should be provided by the company since the beginning. They expect you to be a multi task in a busy yard when shunting, heavy environment and some angry drivers around that take a p*ss on you. The good part, is the shift patterns and the salary. Apart from it, nothing else matters.

Where do I start, unroadworthy vehicles that are not maintained or repaired. Cabs that resemble skips. Heavy manual handling, long waits for loads to be ready or units to be available. The average 10 hours a day that you are employed for is usually 12+ (all at a flat daily rate of £120). You are supposed to receive a fuel and performance bonus every four weeks but this can be upto three months late and is always less than it should be. Only a total 18 days holiday per year. Any overtime is paid at flat rate and does not effect holiday pay. I could go on but you get the picture. I really wish to be positive but unfortunately there is very, very little to recommend.
Pros
None
Cons

Thoroughly enjoyed the 10 years I spent here, longs hours though but the money is more than ample compensation.

The wagons are replaced every 3-4 years so are generally quite new but cover huge mileages.


Pensions and other benefits such as unplanned night out money are excellent.


They are tight on compliance so cavalier drivers stay away, laptops on dashboards while driving and 17 hour days will end your job here!


Management can chase you constantly and you will feel the pressure sometimes.
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
Long hours, pressured at times

Pros
Good colleauges
Cons
Poor management

Was once a premier company to work for, no longer senior and middle management have no respect for employees. Recent shift changes forced through with little or no consultation. Transport office staff haven't had a pay rise in years. Probably trying to get rid of staff by creating a hostile working environment so they can close the Alfreton depot and Head office and move it to the near empty depot at Tilbury. That way they won't pay as much in future redundancy. Don't apply you won't be made welcome. Not the company it once was.
Pros
Good workmates
Cons
Incompetent management
