easy work
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Stafford, Staffordshire9 November 2017
The work is easy and the salary is good. However the work is tedious. The most enjoyable part of the job is clocking out. And the hardest part of the job is staying there for 8 hours.
Pros
good salery
Cons
night shifts

Good at the beginning
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Stafford, Staffordshire23 October 2017
It is a boring warehouse job. It is so monotonous that you disconnect your brain. I learn how to use a LLO that is maybe the only one advantage. The hardest part of the job is to be walking 8h pushing a heavy trolley.
Pros
good salary, good people
Cons
difficult pick rates

Awful place to work
Warehouse Team Member (Current Employee) –  Stafford15 October 2017
This used to be a good place to work, however over the last 2years, there are new managers, they treat people like dirt. Couldn't care less about staff, always on at you to do more! Staff are leaving all the time, 44 staff left this company in August 2017. They now have to employ agency staff, lots of them. From what I've seen they too are treated badly, always leaving. The only positive about this place is the pay. Constant security searches at the end of shift, that's after you have managed to clock off, which takes ages. Do not go for a job here.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Managers. Treated like dirt. Lots of foreign staff, lots of agency staff.

Only care about figures
Ridiculous turn over of staff
Unhelpful in all aspects

Some staff are nice.

Worked on two departments. Trained well. A few managers and supervisors were a bit beyond belief and were well disliked but the regular staff made the shifts good.

Very effiecient and motivational
Warehouse Manager/Assistant Shift Manager (Current Employee) –  Stafford, Staffordshire29 June 2017
A typical day at work is to be very organised and motivated for the fast paced environment. Planning the week, the day even the hour. Managing all members of staffs productivity and conduct as well as their personal requirements. Attending meetings and redeploying staff when required. I have learned a lot about people management in terms of conduct and disciplinary procedures and operational structure . Management team is very good and work together excellently as well as the culture being communicational and mutually respectful. Hardest part of the job is personal problem solving as it can be very tough but I am professional and deal with it well. Love working in a team and working with a lot of different people and characters.

Large Workforce, problematic and inefficient management
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Stafford, Staffordshire16 March 2017
