I am disgusted with this company ! My husband has been suspended for something he would never do, taking them for everything, shocking the way they treat their staff! Certainly will not order from them again and will advise friends and family not to either !!!!!appalling!
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Park Royal, Greater London – 12 October 2018
I was working with this company for 10 months. Few months into the job I got pulled up because I had 3 absences within 6months, taking into account they were for a good reason. Was given a stage 1. Was late once within those 10 months and I was sent home because I arrived 1 minute late. I was attacked when making a delivery and I got suspended for two weeks. After this I got sucked with a Lousy explanation manager did not care at all about my safety they were much worried about the company’s reputation. What a joke of company it all seem very good at the beginning turning out to be a awful company. “Not everything that shines is gold”
Personal Shopper (Former Employee) – Staffordshire – 9 October 2018
I learned to become faster at work, to have a good time management, the hardest part was standing to much, giving me lower back pain, the only bad thing was about the fact that pregnant woman still need to work standing
Personal Shopper (Current Employee) – Andover, Hampshire – 9 October 2018
No bad job, long hours, very bad management must of them doesn't respect you... just because you are a personal shopper they think u are a rubbish. If u want to grown in the company you will need to have friends on top. You can be a hard work but for them u are just a number
Long hours, no respect from the managers, low wages, planning have no ideia what to do, some OM have no ideia how to speak with people...

Ocado is a relaxed and fun environment to work in. There are lots of opportunities to get involved with new projects and lots of social activities you can join in with too. Working there is like being part of a big family. The only negative is that the hours are long
Stock Picker (Former Employee) – Welwyn Garden City – 30 September 2018
It was long hours but the work was enjoyable and varied so that you would not get bored during your shift. the people were also great and came from varied backgrounds so it was good to talk to them to find out more.
Driver (Former Employee) – Dordon, Warwickshire – 30 September 2018
The turnaround of drivers says it all. Dreadful job. If you don't want a life outside this job, this is for you. Totally not enough time given between deliveries. Some of the places are terrible. Ask yourself why are they using online to deliver their food in the ist place? You will fall behind every day & when you do the phone doesn't stop ringing. Management are intilely 1 sided. Holidays hard to book. Hard to make friends as you see them 1day & don't see them again due to so many people work there. Pls take my advice Don't Bother to apply for a driving job at OCADO
Customer Service Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – London – 24 September 2018
i would recommend this job to all delivery drivers because the way ocado do things you have a monthly router so you no whats days you are working. you don't have to load your van. everything is computer rise and you get good benefits.
Personal Shopper (Current Employee) – Dordon, Warwickshire – 20 September 2018
:ots of heavy duty lifting on some aisles. not for someone who wants to progress at a job. Great if you need something to keep you going. managers can be helpful when needed. very solitary job and can be lonely
CSTM Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 17 September 2018
Management couldn't care less about you. Poor wages. Routes are a joke. Sat-navs are useless. Marshalls are all up their own a***s. Vans are all in s**t state. Shift times are ridiculous (don't expect a social life.....or a family life........or just a life in general).
In short: back-breaking, stressful work that pays peanuts whilst the management with screw you over the first chance they get.
HGV Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Hatfield, Hertfordshire – 15 September 2018
Nice easy job, 1 or 2 drops a day which you unload with warehouse ops. Decent wagons, well maintained and not old. The problem with this job is security, your only ever one bad day away from getting the chop. Cameras watching you in the cab procedures that are not flexible. Lost count how many guys got sacked while I was there. Sadly your just a number and as such get treated that way by senior management. The other thing rubbish start times and low pay. The money is poor and you do long days
