Pushed hard
Expect far to much out of you, just expect it to be done, no time for repairs,unless its unusable or stopped, never factor in time for breakdowns, punctures, re fuelling, breaks, or anticipate ques, problems on site, make it your respnsibility to get time sheets in on friday, or threatend with a flat pay.

Work place.
Not a good company to work for,has the management are more interested in giving you an hard time. Not fully qualified to tell you that you are doing your job right. Routes are not done in the right way, runs are all over the place. Cant tell them that it is wrong cause they know better even thou they have never driven a truck or been on the road.
Pros
Work lads are great.
Cons
Management.

Bullying rife on here
All management have favourites and if you don't stay on the right side of the managers favourites you have a mark on your back. It is no good telling the management or personnel how you feel they don't care

Bullying
Don't work here. Get a job somewhere else. Bad communication and warehouse cold in the winter. Bullying from managers is allowed. HR don't care. Glad I left and went somewhere else.

Head in hands frustrating
Quite possibly the most confused place i have ever worked, so frustrating it’s beyond belief, simply pathetic HR department driven by, no overseen by the most incompetent manager I’ve ever witnessed who’s actions filter all the way down the ladder and leave most feeling helpless and frustrated with what tools (not physical) they are left to work with.

A transport department where the phase ‘the tail wags the dog’ doesn’t really say strongly enough, reeks of favouritism and incompetence.


A warehouse department utterly frustrated by cut after cut leaving literally no time to do the day job yet consistently challenged on performance and other issues, please here refer back to the HR paragraph!...and to top it off a bullying arrogant wsm you seems to take great glee from singleing out individuals and trying to belittle them in front of senior management despite himself showing cunning and deceitful favouritism to his inner circle of relations/friends.


More pragmatism and less politics and panic would serve this site very well indeed.


There are some fantastic people here there really are who are constantly dragged down by a small select band of experienced game players and providers of lip service and that is the absolute travesty of the place.


As for Wincanton as a company.....I doubt any single person would be able to tell you what they stand for as a company, ethos, values, etc....the odd online survey which is never acted upon gives you literally nothing, the single most important thing at the cost of everything is share price at any cost.

Bullying management style
Worked for them for 5 years, the management was abysmal using a bullying style of management.
Overall the job it's self was ok but it was made harder by the management culture!
Pros
good basic salary, discount on goods
Cons
poor management structure which relied on bullying tactics with the workforce
