5.30am start, finish when you complete your delivers, 1st couple of weeks where ok as you are out with another driver shown you the route, but then you are on your own, pulling the sometimes very heavy trolleys up and down lanes, as most of the delivery's where in the Dublin 2&4 areas, (area I was delivering too)
Pros
Free tea
Cons
Long hours, heavy trolleys

Toxic work environment, manager is never to seen, supervisors do little or nothing, HR is a basket case waiting for a law suit. Customers are ripped off with constantly changing prices on the same item in the same week and drivers are left embarrassed. CEO upstairs performs box ticking exercises. The abuse they get on social media among young people who have left due to the revolving door pre occupies their time. Most of the decent people are in constant fear of being called to the office. Frankly mind your mental health and steer clear
Pros
End of the working day
Cons
All of the above

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

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.

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

Musgrave is a company where if you work hard you will be given the opportunity to advance and it has a good training and eduacational policy. The hours are good- not always Mon to Fri, Saturdays are shared on a rota basis with two Sundays a year at Christmas. There is late night working and this also is on a rota basis which is shared fairly. Newer employees do more late evening shifts with this changing for them as more employees are employed at different seasonal times. As with all companys of this nature the employees with greater length of service have the best hours. This is not always fair as they are not neccessarily the hardest working.
Pros
Employee discount, Shares, Pension, Christmas bonus, hours.
Cons
Long term colleagues moaning constantly

Hours differed daily which had its benefits but the lack of stability/rostered hours became somewhat tedious. Day-to-day assisted in customer queries, ensured products were restocked, checked orders were correct upon arrival and reordered stock daily. I learned to be more focused on ensuring that customers are gratified with the service and if not reordering their products or finding out if another branch had the product in question. Also learned to up sell products. Management was amicable and approachable, the lack of feeling of hierarchy made for a smooth running workplace. The most enjoyable part of the job was customer satisfaction. The hardest part of the job was making sure every customer was assisted when needed and time management in that case as was quite busy but overall I'd deem myself as a key employee.

Aprendí diversos aspectos de producción y manejo de control de estadistica y calidad de alimentos. la cultura laboral fue muy buena experiencia el poder trabajar con brasileños, chinos e irlandeses. siendo que el dueño y Manager General es Irlandes. La parte mas dificil fue en su momento el trabajo en equipo habiendo una mezcla intercultural pero al final pudimos acoplarnos al estilo de todos. Lo que mas me gusto fue el poder trabajar con el equipo de trabajo que tuve

I have worked with many kinds of people and I found it easy to communicate and co-operate with them. I am very familiar with working to tight deadlines in my previous roles that was a key demand.

Unorganized. Only statistic are important, not workers. If you have stats you are good worker, if no you are not. If you see something broken or that is not made correct and you fix or report you will lose time and managers will pressure you about your stats. And stats are unrealistic, nobody can achieve them if he follows health and safety procedure. It is very sad place to work and going there is painful for mental health.
Pros
it pays
Cons
bad managers, bad working atmosphere, workers are just numbers
