P.A TO MANAGER (Former Employee) – Market Harborough, Leicestershire – 18 February 2019
A typical day was to answer any telephone enquires, complete the invoices from suppliers and also to the customers, complete stocktakes every 6 months, complete the cashing up and make sure it balances. complete any administrative roles required. It was a busy office particularly with the telephones taking enquiries and orders for customers, contacting suppliers and keeping onto of orders placed to make sure the customer was not affected on late deliveries. No hard part to the role really and most enjoyable part was the office staff I worked with and dealing with the customers and suppliers.
ok apart from was there a year then management changed and manager to dislike to me, so i had to leave as he made it difficult to work there anymore and also had other staff members left me out in the cold
HGV Driver (Former Employee) – Stroud – 23 January 2019
Promised a class 2 job but spent 2 months driving a van and handballing everything on and off. A company full of empty promises. Branch management are poor and therefore this ripples down to staff who are frustrated, unsupported and looking for another job at every opportunity. The manager that interviewed me didn't even know the job he was interviewing me for!
For a company so big, what corporate HQ think happens at branch level is a million miles away from the unorganized reality of everyday life. Managers barely know how to use the systems, yet profess to be able to do your job as well as theirs. Most branches are full of 'lifers', who would not be able to survive in the outside world.
Ignore the sycophantic diatribe regarding safety being the main priority. If you get injured at work you'll not get sick pay, and not looked after by the company, just a quick interview to try and cover their arses.
Eventually you'll realise you are just a number and nothing more, then you'll start looking for another job.
Learning and Development Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Northampton, Northamptonshire – 18 January 2019
TP has some amazing colleagues it's just a shame about the Management. They always talk about the cornerstone values but rarely adhere to them. I didn't want to leave, but again it was down to bad management, they don't know how to look after and hold onto talented and loyal colleagues.

Driver / Fitter / Electrical Tester PAT (Former Employee) – United Kingdom – 20 December 2018
Worked here for 3 years found it to be understaffed false promises of getting new memeber in to help your job and want 6 peoples jobs out of one person. No room for promotions, no bonuses even as an individual thats pushed himself for all the time your there, dont care about mental health issues just that your having time off to go to appointments, found management dont care and arent propared to help you as an individual.
Insufficient training on tool hire for beavertail of loading plant and having to drag heavy items up a slippery ramp with no additional aids other than sack trolllys that dont carry the weight, reported issues but to no avail they just think your moaning. Health and safety is a joke its bended to help office staff that have messed up, and it says a lot about the company when everyone seems to be leaving .
Theres better places to work out there with better realistic salaries
A typical day I would go in do the transport for next day. Go out side sever costurms and unload and lorrys and keep the yrad clean and safe. People have a joke, but have to watch how you say things. I have got a forklift prement so not all that bad.The jobs not hard, but the manager is so new that he still a child. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you meet. There is no moving up even when you show them you can do it
Area Sales Representative, Norfolk (Former Employee) – Norfolk – 20 November 2018
probably the worst company I ever worked for, very backward, horrible uneducated managers, bullying culture, disgusting and dirty offices with rat traps all over , I don't know why I stayed a whole year! I feel like I need medical examination to confirm I didn't catch anything nasty while working there - disgusting !

best company to work for! great team!, they offer lots of training as long as your willing to put int he work you are rewarded. self promoting business, very diverse, every day is a new challenge so you will never get bored. made friends for life
Had a great time with the group for 5 years with no complaints until a new "Manager" took over and ruined the workplace for all his staff. Immature, stubborn and unloyal to his staff.
I walked after only 2 weeks under his tyranny. In the meantime he lied about me to future employers about my work ethos and time keeping, which resulted in me submitting a formal complaint to the regional managing director.
Was great working with the previous manager and also the previous ABM
The new manager seemed to do whatever he liked without any guidance from the senior management, so much so his ABM walked out after around 2 weeks.
