The company itself is a pretty good place to work for, and I work evenings. It’s very demanding if you’re unfit because of the heavy stock and all the moving around you do but we do have a laugh. Some people I work with I don’t get along with but the management have been fab and have resolved issues quick and professionally. The pay is great for someone - more ... of my age and there’s plenty of overtime available. Holidays are often difficult to get as so many people want the time off too. Shifts are very short (3 hours mainly) but I have done a few full days and have found customers there to be a bit r ... - less
ProsShort shifts, good pay, good management
Conslacking in organisation, tiring
