Good money but you have to graft for it. You end up working most weekends so the work life balance isn't very good.
You can buy bread products at a reduced price of 50p per item.
Pros
Good wage and pension
Cons
Long hours and lots of weekends

Terrible company to work for, management are back stabbers and only care about themselves, I was a new starter and was sent out blind, false promises, management love to dish out unfair disciplinary’s, warnings, for literally nothing, bit of power goes way too there heads!! Avoid at all costs if you don’t want to be treated unfair and stabbed in the back
Pros
Other drivers all are top lads
Cons
Back stabbing managers

My experience there showed me the level of incompetence of most of the managers and Team leaders. They will always try to get you in trouble or get you fired just because they don't like your face or your confidence . The pay is not bad but the job is hard and stressful so you must be hardworking. HR has no independence because the management have too much influence on them.

Good company to work for. Pay is weekly on a Thursday. Management are fair and helpful when required. Company as a whole seem good. Full Uniform provided, and training. The shifts ain’t the best. 4am start and Have to load your wagon every morning and depending what run your on average finish time is around 11-12. Can be later or can be earlier. Overall not a bad company

Worked at Bolton bakery for 14 years, good people and a stable career, with optional self development. Decent salary and profit share, as a production operative. But 12 hour long shifts and unsociable shift rota let the job down

It’s got great potential to be a fantastic job, although not for everyone with 1 weekend off in every 6 weeks, which is poor, unfortunately it’s poorly run by management, they can not keep drivers at this place, drivers are treated like garbage, drivers do the hardest work, dealing with customers, who at times have a bad attitude, but it goes all unappreciated.

One thing this company love doing is giving final warnings at any given opportunity they get, they like to have you in there pocket, and then have the nerve to call you on your days off, asking if you can come in to help them out, it’s all take take take, and then forgot about!


If I was mr warburton, I’d be looking into why there is such a high turnover of drivers, and look to get rid of the driver operations management and above, people deserve to be treated with respect not unfairly, it’s no coincidence this place is going downhill, when the man running it came from a Tamworth company that is now going upwards and in the right direction and this place rapidly going downhill

Arrogant shift managers that allow a dark hint of underlying bullying exist within the shifts and the shifts themselves are ludicrous! 12 hours at a time, 4 on and 4 off, swapping from days to nights after each days off. You exist to work and have an awful home life due to this rotation between days and nights and also having to work 12 hours.

Very heavy work load and only getting heavier. To call this job a driving role isn't strictly true. You are a warehouse op having to pick the majority of your days work into your customer orders. Also you are continuously having to do other drivers work that isn't done correctly, paperwork issues, equipment not collected. Route planning is left to you to sort out with customers changing the goal posts continuously, with no support. Your driving style is watched closely and only one route I've done had a sat nav. Work life balance is non existent, very early starts and late finishes for some while others are only doing 6 hour days. You have to load your own vehicle if you can get a bay close to you stock. Personal I don't think the money is worth the stress this job puts on you or your family.

I would usually start at 7 am however on some days it would be 6 am, I would go into workplace my belonging into a locker and change into the Warburtons uniform. My role as a hygiene operative allowed me to be mobilised around the bakery as I was given a set task to complete throughout the day by my manager. I would work alongside my colleagues who would support me if I had any problems and were very friendly.

Want the world from you and if you make a mistake it’s not tolerated. It’s your fault no matter what the situation is and will check all cctv even if nothing to do with incident just to nail you on something. All take and no give! On the plus side pay is good don’t expect to get a weekend off

If.you are not afraid of hard graft and want to earn a good wage then this is place. You are are the face of the company and last line of defence in safety, quality and delivering effective operations to customers. I like to do the job to a high standard as I am my own boss out on the road and judge my own performance.
Pros
Good rate of pay, good benefits. Great team workers and managers. Early afternoon finish.
Cons
Early rise, weekend working, 5 over any 7

Working at Warburton was a great job. Really enjoyed my time their. The job culture changed over the years. No longer a family business but a results business. All jobs are, but they lost the balance.
