There is no respect for humans, managers yelling at you for not reaching the targets and laughing behind the counter with team leaders,health and safety is a JOKE , they don't care if you got a problem all you get in response is "business needs" . You don't have the right to speak your mind, if you want to keep your job you need to keep you head down and smile when they pick on you. I never felt so humiliated before!

It was my first warehouse job, I learned a great deal from them, organization, the importance of cleaning and team work. The managers were very friendly and they got us to the level required to work in that environment.

Can be stressful, always on about targets. Learned quite a few skills, this is encouraged throughout the departments. Management can be tough but most are fair. The hours are regular and you don't have to do split shifts. Disciplinary procedure is too strict.
Not split shifts
Can be shipped from one dept to another without notice.
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!!
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Coleraine, County Londonderry – 22 November 2016
Horrendous place to work. Foreign manager unqualified and a nasty piece of work. Suggested I wasn't talkative enough and emphasised work too much over banter with staff. Unprofessional company. Staff very kilqy and constantly suckling up to management.
Rubbish hours no security. Poor environment woeful management
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Walsall – 26 October 2016
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.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Walsall – 3 August 2016
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
