We were using bogeys and pick pallets and place products at righ store. Menagers were ok and fair and because of work culture i advance my knowledge of english.
Hardest part was cold (5 decreese or less all day).

Most enjoyable part was hanging with rest of collegaues.

Decent days work for decent days pay
Paid training paid breaks

It is hard work but if you are used to work it shouldn't be a shock to you.

I worked there 5 years and you get pay increases yearly.


I was always treated fairly. Great mix of people.
Pros
Good pay for warehouse work, stable hours, loads of overtime.
Cons
Open 24/7

A relaxed and friendly workplace and I made many friends. Access-wise, it's fairly central and easy to commute to, with on-site parking and a great staff restaurant!

This shop is all over the place, high rate of staff turnover and management changes frequently. It is hard to adjust to this and your opinions or problems are never listened to. The pay is good and the staff are all very nice and friendly.

The environment is odd, supervisors/ managers are mostly long serving with no proper qualifications. Some of the language used by the same is disgraceful. HR is a basket case, the revolving door of staff leads to customers constantly complaining about mistakes in orders, overcharging and poor communication. Doesn’t make sense. It’s been my experience that some customers only stay with them as there is no alternative. I should have known something was not proper when the job is always advertised. Save time and wait for the job worth waiting for. They are out there.
Pros
Nice staff and customers.
Cons

You work terribly hard for 10 hours a day for Penny's, and then after you brake your back for these criminals they get their little line managers to tell their staff that they are not doing enough. They humiliate you inside the warehouse and also try to manipulate you into downloading WhatsApp so they can boss you around and bully you on your days off. Simple no respect for the staff.

A lot of walking about doing nothing. The wage itself is a disgrace. Most jobs are done by mid afternoon and your told to walk about and fix shelves... Its so tedious and the day drags in. Too many people in on shifts were they are not needed.
Sales assistants get on like managers because they have been their for years and think they are better than you. The managers themselves are nice people however it seems if the people that have worked their longer just complain and moan they get their way.

Started of great then stress central, then good then the worst. I've worked for some rubbish in my time but this was probably the worst! They harp on about their values but don't live by them, often rewarding the wrong people and punishing the good. The senior management team, you could count on 1 hand how many are decent, the rest, no business acumen, no man management skills, only interested in self progression and will walk over anyone to get to the top without a care in the world about the other person's circumstances. Speak your mind colleagues, we want you to do we can listen and make changes; yep you guessed it, those changes are you out the door!!! Highlight concerns to HR, yea if your face doesn't fit they don't care, as someone else said, HR& accountant run and very very wrongly at that!! If you value your sanity stay well clear.
Clueless company
Pros
Good craic on the warehouse floor

To cut a long story short the place is an absolute joke. Slave drivers of managers who are the most useless human beings on this planet. Work for 10.46 an hour. Work like an Olympic donkey to get your full bonus at the end of the week. Work every Sunday morning at 6am or 7am. Watch the managers buddy boys on the same contract as you pick the same pallet for 2 hours while your after picking 10 pallets of apples. The full-time workers are hilarious. Stay away 😂

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

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

The management is great and the job is easy enough to do. But low pay. It's very hard for others to progress at this place. It's flexible for students like myself.
