Picker (Current Employee) – Warrington, Cheshire – 14 March 2018
The team is very nice and it feels very homely while being there, the job is easy although the day drags, the hours that were given to me were good and the team were understanding in case of an emergency or illness
i have never worked anywhere, where 95% of the whole warehouse are not english, but on the flipside of that i have never worked in such a happy place.
Warehouse Picker (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 12 March 2018
it's a really easy job and all the staff were a pleasure to work with, the only problem was that the agency management were cutting hours and at the same time, kept employing new staff??? So I could not continue working there.

Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tamworth – 28 February 2018
O was perm with the company for 9 months, good team on the begining but the things change they want a lot target but nothing in change, not so good salari 8,15 for evwrybody even if you druve all the trucks in the warehoise!
Could be a great place to work if only the culture was different.
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – North Wales – 26 February 2018
The work place culture is all wrong. It's a dog eat dog environment to pick as high amount of 'tickets' as possible with no or little regard to the product or quality of stacking on pallets. The focus when the site opened was on quantity rather than quality of work and now the management want the staff to focus on the standard of the pallet/cage stacking! The Warehouse Operatives are asked to work as a team but there still is the emphasis on individual counts - you can't have it both ways, pick and pack as a team or continue to have the recurring issues of miss-picks, poor stacking/pallets collapsing and animosity among the staff.
Some good people there to keep you sane.
You have to work 6 Sundays out of 7 and you soon lose your sense of humour.
- Didn't enjoy how big the place was and how much walking you had to do and how many stairs you have to climb. - Heat was unbearable in the summer, no air-con was fitted due to a new buliding. - Breaks are not long enough.
Andrex toilet roll (outbound) (Former Employee) – Dantes inferno (stoke - on - trent) – 21 February 2018
Team leaders don't want to know you unless your making mistakes. They seem to get pleasure from getting rid of people. If you illness symptoms. It not a reason to them. I found the agency to be friendly and helpful. Que sera sera.

HGV Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Leigh, Lancashire – 16 February 2018
Great team spirit among drivers and management.sorry to leave company but relocated from Yorkshire to Aberdeen.i worked as a tramper monday to friday and sometimes running back to depot on saturday morning.curtain sided trailers.xpo paid to get my ADR certificate.easy going friendly depot to work for.
My typical day at work was to unload and load lorries with the correct items in the order of delivery. I learned more about time keeping on the job so the deliveries where out on time. The hardest part of the job was keeping having all the lorries out on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the team on night shifts.
Picker/Packer (Current Employee) – Livingston – 10 February 2018
At this job it is all about working quickly and the managers dont care about the staff. The targets are way to high and it is a very heavy job. When i started I was never introuduced to any managers so if I needed help was always unsure who to ask. It is a very boring and repetitive job not many perks. Bad backshift hours and hardly ever get two days off at once for youre weekend!!!
pmp manager namely christian lack of skills and racism
General Operative (Current Employee) – barnsley – 10 February 2018
Overalls its a good place to work and decent wages but the manager, christian was rude and racism with bias. Most workers especially from agency were very upset with his attitude and treating. Special treats for some people especially romanian. Very good in demotivate agency workers i would say. Someday someone will complaint about him. Its a matter of time.
WAREHOUSE OPERATIVE (Current Employee) – Tipton, West Midlands – 1 February 2018
a normal day at work would finish the picking then put all delivery away. management is down to earth and will help any way they can, the hardest part of the job is working in the freezer all day but they provide hats and gloves to make you comfortable
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Grantham – 30 January 2018
