Not worth it
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Dublin4 December 2019
I joined in early summer hoping it would be a great job. I soon realised that it isn't and I didn t receive my training within the time period and was made work on the floor before I was trained. The management are useless and they don't care about the floor staff. The only good thing about it is that it's good for a cv and the subsidised dinners

Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Kilcock, County Kildare28 November 2019
Heavy work pays too little.
Contempt of employees by line managers and depot managers.
All trainings are equally paid and the obligations towards work are higher

Stay away from this place
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Kilcock21 October 2019
I worked there in Kilcock for a year on the night shift. Was getting paid 9.50 an hour at the time. It was back breaking work. The pick rate was unrealistic. Accidents were quite common in there as people are racing around in there trying to hit the pick rate. Had alot of issues with the agency. They were rude and ignorant to deal with. Alot of rats in there who would report people for minor things just so they could climb up the ladder. You'd be paid flat rate for working the weekends. You‘d have team leaders walking around the warehouse making sure nobody is talking making it feel like a prison so moral in there is very low. The high turnover of staff is an indicator of how poor of a job this is. All in all its a terrible job and not good for your mental health. Its time the health and safety authority’s investigated this company and other warehouses like it. Its not good enough in this day and age.

Between 2 jobs?
Operative (Current Employee) –  Blanchardstown, County Dublin25 September 2019
Not bad as a temporary gig if for a sake of working between two jobs.
Most of positions are available for you to choose if you prefer to work in any of 3 shifts.

Depot Operative (Current Employee) –  Dublin3 September 2019
Three different contract's for the same job. One's that are payed less are expected to work harder. If you want to be treated as an animal, than go ahead.

Depression central
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Tramore road, cork city12 August 2019
If you work here your guaranteed depression, they’d rather fly in Croatians then pay Irish people a decent wage, the union is run by a load of old clowns who only look after themselves, it’s made very clear to you your just another number in there and can be easily replaced. Don’t do it to yourself. Hopefully the place goes bust they deserve it. Scraping poo stains off the jax would be a better job.

Worst place to work it's a work camp !
Voice Picker (Current Employee) –  Kilcock, County Kildare10 August 2019
Management lying constantly. Cheating on Staff, their assignments time. Not a hope for anything else but picking. Discrimination towards new staff and giving favours to The old staff. No respect for staff at all.
Pros
None
Cons
Endless.

Very busy business
Delivery driver (Current Employee) –  Waterford city, County Waterford18 July 2019
The hours are good and if you like meeting people then this is right up your street. The driving part of the job is very little, the most of the time you are dealing with customers while doing your delivery.

Poor operation
Employee (Former Employee) –  Dublin5 July 2019
Business is so badly organised and ran that its frustrating and highly inefficient. Senior management are incompetent and their bosses have their heads so far in the clouds they've lost touch with what's happening. They hire people that have limited experience and don't know what they are doing. It could be a great place to work but they dont reward their people so their people get fed up and lose interestor just leave. They work people to the bone and still expect great results.
Pros
Going home.
Cons
Incompetent management that don't listen

Finance Administrator (Former Employee) –  Robinhood, Clondalkin Dublin2227 June 2019
A good place to work, the management was very good to me while I was there. The hardest part would have been the deadlines but they were manageable. The enjoyable part was the benefits.

It's like working with your family at a fairly positive job.
General Operative (Former Employee) –  Waterford30 April 2019
Every day is pretty much the same. I was a general operative so would be either stacking shelves with goods or picking orders in cages for customers to have them delivered by truck. They work by the book which is good, there are no grey areas regarding protocol or rules so it's an easy job to carry out. Most of the time the fellow employees are fairly upbeat (the usual complaining about the job comes up but we knew it was more in a joking capacity). It was a messy job in the sense you'd be covered in all sorts of dust and dirt from working in the warehouse but this comes with the job. Customers are very respectful in 99% of cases because they're business customers. Management was mostly efficient. Supervisor had a habit of speaking about staff behind their backs and shouldn't have been there by any means but didn't affect the working day most of the time. No prospects of moving up the ladder really but wages did go up after a certain duration in their employment.
Pros
Just go in a do the job effectively and you'll be left alone
Cons
Supervisory & management had some unrealistic expectations when it came to certain targets.
