Us vs Them
As a yard operative it was fun working within the warehouse and with like minded people.
The main issues were the office staff and "managers" it was a very US vs THEM situation, office staff looked down upon the warehouse team. The whole "one team" thing didn't exist.
Managers didn't care about health and safety violations or building safety. Zero harm policy meant nothing.
Managers would take weeks, sometimes months off, still get paid and came back to work like nothing had happened, was never updated with why they were gone. Flips flops being worn in the warehouse by a certain manager too, disgusting.
I was told when I joined the company that everyone is on the same wage, office and warehouse staff, turns out that was a lie. Ranged wage gaps of about £5k. Ask for a rise and then get told that the company has no money. Closing branches all over the UK. Once 300 stores, now less than 100.
