Not great for new starters
Not a pleasant place to work. Very dirty. Feels understaffed. Computers are continually out of use. No point complaining about anything as nobody cares.

Great job
Really enjoyed working here in a friendly environment. The staff were extremely helpful in helping me get the hang of things and making sure I was on the right track.

Make sure your face fits in and you’ll be some what okay
Workplace ruined by the people upstairs, HR lady is a bully, if she doesn’t like the look of you you’ll be out the door no doubt about that, the people on the shop floor are what makes this place decent enough to work, no one wants to be working there just for the fact it’s full of bullies upstairs, the demand for work is through the roof, your best isn’t good enough, if you want unfair dismissal stax is the place to work, the only way they can get you through the door is the big Christmas bonus, but you’ll be gone before Christmas to even get that. Toxic workplace to work, ungrateful management, wouldn’t be surprised if it’s ran into the ground the branch
Pros
Christmas bonus

Worst job i have ever had
Terrible place to work. From day one life at stax was hard. The staff trainer was very military and at every opportunity would make the 10 weeks of training feel like a prison sentence. The hours were very all over the place and had to work 7 shifts for 1 day off. The management is terrible and the section seniors wouldn't know a hard day's work if they tried. The place is full of young men and women hiding in corners talking and flirting all day and getting away with it while other more mature of age staff would literally break there back to get the work done. A very clicky place and if your face doesn't fit you've had it. And don't rely on the HR for much support either, Terrible company shocking team moral and very hard work and long hours for the not so bad pay!
Pros
Simply couldn't pick any
Cons
Long hours, hard work

Not a good place to work
This was not a good place to work, the shifts were really random, sometimes you would only get 1 day off in 12 which was a friday that came after a 9 o clock finish on the thursday, also your shift rotation could be changed at the drop of a hat. the working conditions werent great either, pidgeons used to get in and poo all over the shelves you had to work with, nothing was ever done about it and you were supposed to get on with it. The management had there favourites and if u werent one of those you would be pushed out the door pretty quickly.This is definitely a job to avoid.
Pros
good christmas bonus
Cons
everything else

Hopeless management
Back stabbing managers that make things up and all stick together.
Too much whispering and scheming in corners.

Hard work means nothing, you just need to be "in the click"

Okay place to work.
Not an enjoyable place to be. Management brings down the spirit with unrealistic deadlines and take no consideration for people's lives outside work

Hard work but a good company to work for
Each day was not the same. One day you can be swamped down in deliveries and picking orders for customers and the next day you can have a day where you can just fill up your section and catch up on out of stocks and general tidying up of your rota. I was always learning something new everyday. Its part of the job. Customers always come first. I've learnt to drive a forklift and to read replenishment report and how to order stock and do special orders for customers where needed. I have been made senior twice which put me in charge of a section and staff. Management wise it was a good place. They looked after there staff. My co workers I almost seen them as family. They looked out for each other. Hardest part of the job was the mad days where you didn't know which way to turn due to all the deliveries and order picking that was booked in for the day. But at the end of the day when it was all done it was good to say we all as a team to get the job done.
Pros
Working with great staff
