Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Bellshill, North Lanarkshire – 17 June 2018
Treated like scum from very early on, as it has been with the majority of the staff currently working under them. Managers see you as nothing but a number, and no matter your circumstances you are expected to be a robotic body to them. Avoid at all costs.
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – North West – 14 June 2018
Job could be so easy but due to the management being a joke it's really hard like everywhere they have their favourites who get all the easier work while looking for ways to get the rest in trouble it's just run so bad

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Wrexham – 10 May 2018
I worked in the return dept for 10 months at Wrexham. Great place to work, nice easy going management, good pay, good life / work balance with 12 hour shifts so 4 days off a week. Good bunch of lads so had a right laugh going to miss the place. Lots of long term employees so not a huge turnover of staff, I only left to go self employed. £9.88 an hour with time and a half for overtime.
Pay, management good, breaks, days off, relaxed atmosphere.
Some really (60kg) heavy boxes to lift! canteen, toilets.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Tamworth, Staffordshire – 6 May 2018

Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Manchester – 23 April 2018
Work with good people, for a long time, typical day is second nature I am skilled in my role, I have gain a lot of experience, and achieved the necessary certificates to do my job, from in house training. Managers are fair, most have become friends and are approachable. The culture in my present site, is to look after each other. The hardest part, is the repetitiveness. The enjoyable part, is the people, building friendship's in and out of the workplace.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 23 April 2018
It was a very good job. A friendly environment, friendly relations between employees.It was a job at a wholesale store in H & M online shop. I worked with the computer, I made items returns. I packed, picked and sorted clothes into the boxes.
The job is not difficult but is repetitive. It usually doesn't involve heavy lifting because it's mostly picking toys, but some of the boxes can be heavy. The team leader was nice, but he promised we would get llop training eventually, but it never came. We were also promised we could get permanent jobs with xpo (I am agency now), but it's already been 8 months and nothing changed. We used to work full time, 5 days a week, but it's been a few months now that we only work 3 or 4 days a week, not covering the 40 hours.
good payment, not heavy lifting
not guaranteed we would be working the next day, was promised training but it never happened, repetitive tasks
