The job itself was good although pick rates were a little unreasonabl, I'm only 5"1 and had to struggle to do ridiculous picks and you couldn't ask someone to help you because we were all on a time limit. However, there were favourites who got smaller picks and constantly stood around chatting whilst I was trying to work my butt off as fast as I could and nothing was ever said or done about their pick rate.

4on4 off shift pattern! Paid by the hour meant had to work extra days to make money up. Early starts, longtime workers got same routes every week, overall good experience working there.

Awful Place to work, it's understaffed and they just give everyone more work and make them stay past their finishing time to get the work done without pay every night instead of hiring more staff to help.

A great place to work in a large office with plenty of support when required. It was very fast paced but that helps the day pass and at the end of the day, I had a sense of achievement.
I discovered that I was good at Customer Service and was given one of their major accounts to oversee under management. I was included in conference calls at their request. Another one of their major customers wanted the same so I got a lot out of it.

My Manager was supportive and helpful, as required.

The atmosphere in the office was great most of the time.

ok place to work at, not much in the way of progression as there isn't really a good management structure, the saving grace was the people i worked with on the shop floor.

General manager horrific bully, he got the sack. Replacement not much better, viewed as slightly better than the old one. Working on edge the whole time while on site. Quite a lot of people have left due to the highly stressful working environment.
Pros
None
Cons
Very long hours, victimisation, bullying, managers who couldn't care less for staff.

Very happy to have had the opportunity to join this company. The experience I gained within this operation was immense. Managing over 300 warehouse staff including shift managers, supervisors etc was challenging at times, helped mainly by the engagement of my team.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Cold storage environment

Loaders in cold store not interested in safety. They simply move an item from one place to another, regardless of safety / security of that item, including when loading vehicles.
Management disinterested & always full of poor excuses.
Pros
Good hours.
Cons
Ridiculously low wages. 9.42 per hour for HGV1.
