Revolving Door
Only decent thing about this place is the money. You get treated like dirt the vans are preloaded but almost every time everything is in the wrong place. The hours are unsociable and the staff turnaround speaks for itself people are constantly sacked for the slightest of things. Management are clueless more interested in sitting around chatting to each other only wanna know you when they have something negative to say.

Good place to work
Good place to work & friendly staff. If you have a good work ethic & try your best you will be fine.
If you have problems tell them & they will try to help in anyway they can even with issues at home.

A company that cares for there staff.

If u want a low paid job with minimum hours this is for u
Not a great experience possibly the worst job I’ve had in a long time. Management are a moody bunch, miserable environment at the Cheadle Hulme Depot.

Good job.
The driving aspect of the job was great if you are organized and hard working.
The marshalling side of the job is a nightmare. It is very hard work, and there was very little management support.

If you want to work there, just stay as a driver. You get to go to some really random places and I never had an awkward customer in the 2 years I worked there.

Good training
Although this is a good company to work for I found driving around central London daily very stressful when your under pressure from time slots and parking. It is heavy work for example carrying large bottles of water upstairs (sometimes 80 plus) several times on a single drop can burn you out quickly.
Pay is competitive but well earned.

The job is very stressful, often long days of around 10.5 hours. Aren’t paid much and it’s weekly. Overtime is always available.
The job is very stressful, the days are often long. Most of the time you do not feel as though the work you do for the company is appreciated or noticed as you are referred to by your handscan number. This constantly reminds you the company doesn’t care.
Pros
4 days a week at work
Cons
Bad pay and work life

Ocado try and keep every penny they can from you with bull incentives and cheap equipment.
If your looking for some income for a few months or maybe a year whilst you get your self together its fine... there are loads of lovely people working in the warehouse and everyone is very polite. The pay is shockingly bad for what you have to do. Its hard on the feet. And it will slowly demoralise the keenest of souls.

Great place to work
A company at growth stage with a lot of challenges and collaborative. An open culture with a lot of projects and learning experience. The most enjoyable part of the job was that team helped each other towards the team goals.

Time restrictions on drops

Working most weekends

Early starts and late finishes. Time slots can be difficult to hit if you are held up in traffic or late leaving due to hold ups with your vehicle being ready

Fast paced, can be stressful, job satisfaction at the end of the shift.
Everyday was different, there was no typical day at work.
Due to Ocado's complex operating system, there were daily changes to the software, you were learning new things on a daily basis.

The workplace culture to some time to get used to as I've never worked in an environment like this before, that being said i was posted to a newer Ocado site that was run totally different to Andover, thats when you realised that at Andover we had built a family that loved what we did and worked as a team across 5 different areas.

Has Bad Press
I found Ocado a good place to work but they did favour people who had been there longer for promotions rather than those better for the role as they do have such a large turnover of staff
