Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Walsall – 15 December 2016
work was hard and very fast with little to no support from Russians/polish workers luckily found a few nice English chaps and friend people to try and stay working with as better environment. management get angry when you talk to each other and get sarcastic , lunch break is quite short but decent at 30 mins, long work time between breaks as work starts at 6am - 3pm break at 10 for 30 minutes and home time is at 2:45 as no break is within 4 hours they let you leave 15 minutes early is your still able to walk and not blistered to death HAHAHA
i learned do not trust russians! they were all so grumpy!!

not a bad place to work at, some good staff also relaxing environment, apart from that you get fully trained on everything and it has a very good canteen with nice food. was worth the morning breakfast when had first break.

I started at tjx threw an agency staffline and the agency Is as corrupt as tjx it self staffline manager charged foreign workers for there contracts didn't pay the employees there holiday pay instead swindled money into is own account and then if you get a contract get ready to be treated like something off the bottom of the managers shoes I think this is why they employ alot of eastern Europeans so they can exploit them.ridiculous daily targets and your either stood standing in the same spot for 9 hours aday if ticketing and constantly walking 10+ miles aday if orderpicking only go here if your desperate.

Hated working here, worst place I've ever worked, standing at a bench for 8.5 hours really killed my feet and my back. Expected to do unrealistic amounts of units every hour. It depends on the stock you get, if it is easy then it is possible but if you have to de-trash a lot or bubble wrap it can take ages. Management are vile, never tell you you are doing good, only when you are doing something wrong. They never smile at you or ask how you are doing either, just give you dirty looks. Training was ridiculous as we had 6 different trainers over 6 days and every one told us different things and one of them is a bare faced liar. Some of them never told us things that were important as well. I think the breaks are awful as well as we only get half an hour on a 9 hour shift when we are standing for so long. I think we should get like an extra 20 minutes or something. So glad I have left the place, I will not be working there again. I don't think the management team or the lead care about the staff at all. It's also boring and depressing standing at the bench and doing nothing but the same thing over and over again.
Standing in one spot for 8.5 hours, management, training

firstlywe have the line manager brief us all on the state of the goods we have to process for the shift,what is needed to be done,and we are all encouraged to keep the pace.before the end of the shift we do house keeping and make sure everywhere is clean and safe.then we clock out,
