Sick pay is bad they dont give you the right amount.. very poor pay. I wouldnt work here very bad. Managers people leave every day i never seen a place like this. Staff dont get support that much. They say try and sort it out yourself. The work can be hard driving finding the places carrying heavy shopping upstairs. Can get a bad back tired only 20min break for 7.30 shift.

40 hours a week if you're perm, hours increase due to emergency/business overtime, if voluntary overtime you can refuse, nights can be difficult but you get used to it, gets cold in the chiller and hot in ambient so be prepared.

40 hour week but to be honest, once you are up to speed you can get this down to 37 or less. Times vary, could start at 530 on a sunday!

Terrible, roto SHOULD be 2 weeks mornings, 2 weeks afternoons but sadly not the case, going from working mornings to afternoons then to mornings is so draining on your body, your body clock gets thrown all over the place,
