Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) – Telford, Shropshire – 11 June 2018
All in all, a good company to work for, although time management is crucial, with the amount of daily tasks to accomplish. I have gained my fork lift truck licence, and put in place a spillage team. Management tend to be reactive, instead of pro active, but still do a good job of producing the best out of the teams at weber. The hardest part of my job is time management, as there are so many tasks / projects to complete on a daily basis. Culture is fair within the workplace, time off through sickness is falling, and teams are more open to help one another more than they used to. I enjoy the daily challenges my job gives, and the training that saint-goblin gives is excellent, they are willing to invest in you!
Goods In Operative (Former Employee) – Worksop – 6 June 2018
The management of the worksop site are nothing more than yes men/woman fawning to there directors while ignoring serious issues within the warehouse.
The roof has been leaking steadily for over 2 years and has been reported to the h&s executive Mel in team briefings almost weekly and they still insist on having 8 ton flt’s drive through the racking over it where operatives are working on foot while not bothering to address or repair the roof. The toilets are a biological hazard zone, the ones that work that is and the management don’t care to have them repaired as they have there own behind locked doors by there offices.
This is a plumbers merchant that cannot maintain there own plumbing.
They will bully and intimidate operatives into breaking there own health and safety rules and if you dare to complain or refuse to preform a dangerous task they will use these same rules to punish/ dismiss you, the only way they will address hazards on the shop floor is after a worker has been hospitalised and will threaten suspension/dismissal without fair pay even if a valid doctors note is submitted
This is by far the worst site I have ever seen and the blame lies solely with the senior management team who specialise in keeping there staff in line with the arrogant threat that you can and will be replaced by agency workers if they don’t like what you say, such as “why is there no union rep on site?” Or “dosnt the relationship between the site manager and the stock manager represent a conflict of interests?”
Do not expect help or support from the team leaders or shif managersmore... because the only way they rose to this positions is by falling in-line with the way their superiors work and perpetuating it.
All people of integrity and with a flicker of decency will not do very well within this companyless
A few decent people working at the bottom level
You will be injured and then ignored by this company unless you know employment law inside out
ops (Former Employee) – Runcorn, Cheshire – 17 April 2018
this company have no insight to the future and I would be surprised if the company keep manufacturing for the next five years they need to keep pace with insulation materials the runcorn site has many problems I would keep away as people are leaving faster than ever. short sightedness is the down fall as directors have not got a clue and are not looking to the future of the plant shame for all who work there

IT Administrator (Former Employee) – Huddersfield, West Yorkshire – 26 April 2017
A very modern and forward thinking employer with excellent working environment. All were invited to participate and contribute to the company wellbeing plus they also actively reviewed any suggestions for improvements to company/employee suggestions. My position with them was as an external contractor but they made me feel welcome.
Free tea and coffee, great interpersonal dress down days where all contributed for charities
Would have liked to have been made permanent but their policies did not allow
Crane Driver (Former Employee) – Midlands – 23 April 2017
If you say delivery not safe manager not interested and you are encouraged to do unsafe deliveries for the figures. No support from manager want truck out all day but no time to load. Lads in yard fun but not there for fun want truck loading,
Questioned by manager why do daily safety checks!!!
Some fiddling going off so refused to take out any dodgy deliveries.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 March 2017
My son worked here for 2 years through an agency, he was then taken on by the company as a permanent employee, which was when the issues started. He hurt his back on the shop floor and nothing was done, he had time off for this and had a docs note for amended duties. This was deemed as 'poor performance during his probationary period' and he was dismissed...the day before his grandmas funeral! Appalling!
