I have worked for this company for a very long time and enjoy my work very much, as with every job you have good days and bad, but the good out-way the bad 100-1. management are approachable and fair, very good company to work for, pay is fair for the area. the staff onsite are all good guys who work very well as a team and have a laugh whilst working but get the job done and help each other out. i would highly recommend this company to work for.
started at the new staplton warehouse in peterborough perfect hours great team and my management team are helpful and supportive the day shift is ideal with anyone with a family life as for the first timei have a perfect balance between work and home and a bonus optional overtime on a saturday
Poor place to work to many supervisors and team leaders not enough staff on shop floor expected to work overtime everyday if you don’t you get looked at like you a a piece of rubbish work load far to much constantly saying they will train staff but still to see it happen (8 months ago) hub manager want nothing all do with the place arr the staff in all a sinking ship
Worked in Guildford for a while. The people with the biggest mouth work their way up in management. All stick and no carrot. They have no people skills at all. Would not recommend working here to anybody.

Having worked for Stapletons for a short while I had to address some of the negatives on here. At the Bristol hub all the management are brilliant, they will not expect you to do things they wouldn’t! Training is good, I was given two weeks of training before being sent out on my own. Without exception all the drivers and warehouse guys are friendly and welcoming to new staff. The only reason I had to leave was the work/life balance. The job does require you to work overtime, usually daily. Normally not a problem but with a young child at home and a career wife out all the time it wasn’t for me. Finally it is a great, easy job with good workmates, I just wish I could of carried on. Recommended for all!!!
Managed poorly by anyone above a supervisor. Have stood next to General Manager and witnessed him phone to warehouse and say "there''s a bit of paper on the floor pick it up" also stand next to a warehouse or and say the same rather than actually pick it up. Ruined what was a good depot constantly asking for new improvement ideas then shutting them down as he didn't like them even if they could actually improve productivity

Nights Manager is clueless about what goes on within a shift.
He has 'Favorites' within the staff who are not expect to work as hard as other members of the shift on a daily basis, if he decides he doesn't like you he will make you work in a manner no-one else is required to.
I either met or exceeded every target I was given during my training, yet my probation was extended and targets raised to levels above that of the permanent members of the team.
Easy work, Good Pay
Treated Poorly, Favorites Culture, Hard Work Not Appreciated

it could be a good place to work if management would take on ideas that the people in the job tell them it would make the job easier but it is my way or no way if you like long hours and little respect this is the place for you. you are under pressure from the moment you clock on that is why staff do not stay long or are looking for work
its monday friday
poor management and bad man management if you don, t like it leave

Poor place all take no give can not get you holidays wearhouse manager hasnt got a clue and is over his head and is more botherd in trying to sack staff some good lads who work there but very under staffed poor pay for what they have to do and talked to like dirt
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Wakefield, West Yorkshire – 31 January 2018
Poor place to work, unskilled and Un knowledgeable, lazy management who don't care about their employees. Too high workload for the amount of staff and lots of nepotism and favouritism. Highly stressful and mentally draining. The only upside is lots of overtime available and not so bad of a wage for a warehouse job.
Loading Bay Operative (Former Employee) – Corby, Northamptonshire – 24 January 2018
worked on the am inbound shift hand bowling tiers off of the back of lorries. absolutely no chance for progression. and god help you if you dont unload your trailer within the 2 hour time limit. and the site manager was awfull
i have never worked in a place that has a turnover of staff like this with a management with the if you don,t like it you know where the door is anyone who likes being treated like a second class citizen the job would be a good job if people where allowed to get on with the job and stop putting problems in the way everthing that goes wrong is treated like its the end of the world sledgehammer to crack a nut comes to mind the best part of the job is if you work a saturday you get paid what you should be on in the week with all that is expected of you

this job has changed a lot in the last year, it has become very difficult for someone of my years. very physical job more suited to younger men. unloading an average of 3,000 tyre a day plus order picking in between. it getting too much,...
Lbo. (Current Employee) – Corby, Northamptonshire – 1 October 2017
Fixed shifts. Had a pay rise every year I've worked for them, but the manager at my particular warehouse seems to only fill higher positions from outside and not by promoting people from the shop floor. Progression is rare, but work steady.
Ware house- If you enjoy being treated like a slave for minimum wage then this is the placer for you. Managers are bullies, you have to stay until all vans are picked and loaded on a Friday night even if it's 2 or 3 in the morning. I'd like to win the lottery just so I could buy the place and shut it down so no one else had to be abused and humiliated by little men in their little cliques. So to summarise - it's an awful placer to work, you won't stick it out, don't do it!!
Driver (Former Employee) – Aylesford, Kent – 13 September 2017
The manager is a total control freak, always trying to find faults with personal rather than praising good work. Has a high turn over of drivers (always advertising) ask yourself why. Could be a good job if hawk eye wasn't watching your every move.
