Transport is really bad they don't care about you even you ask for a secound job or overtime they don't care is just do their job and go home if you need help or support form them is hard. Job is easy but not enough hours.
Pros
No pressure at work
Cons
Transport is bad

Worked for Gist for 15 years and they are stuck in the past but I like it. Have had opportunity to advance but I prefer the steady life.
Good Pension and other benefits.

Good Holiday entitlement if on old Gen contract.

Wages are above average for the area.

Overtime plentiful if wanted.


Pros
Pension and Holiday Entitlement.
Cons
No subsidized canteen.

Now the CEO has changed I hope the culture of promoting managers from the graduate scheme with very little experience over seasoned professionals with a wealth of experience changes.
Pros
Working conditions, salary and bonus scheme
Cons
Work life balance, being overlooked for advancement, job roles not being advertised and just given to undeserving people

Avoid this company, they don't care about people, one men toilet for a whole team and it was always dirty even during corona time. They do not care about hygiene, you are only a number to pick as much as you can for 9,50 per hour. This company is a joke. They save money on everything, budget is their first choice.

I am with Gist nearly 2 years. £11.05 ph on daily basis is not a great but not as bad hourly rate. Weekends paid more. Collegues are mostly friendly. Poor management not listening to emploees. All they want is to get a target no matter what. If you lucky and get a good run you will be satisfied. If not you can foget about familly and social life..

I m not recommending at all to work here.
Pay rate is 9.50 in Hemel Hempstead and you will work most of the week ends . Racist managers and favouritism.

Do not promote from within. Many promises for advance but it’s really just a dangled carrot. Made to feel as if you must come to work sick and if you don’t you are treated poorly. Management at the time was not supportive or helpful in solving problems
Pros
It was close to home
Cons
Very stressful and everyone screams and curses in the transport office

Standard work day in gist is really fast paced but its easy. I have learned more communication skills and to be more organised, the hardest part of the job id say is pulling the heavy fruits with no electric pallet truck. I really do enjoy this job i just feel like its time for a change.
