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

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

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.

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.

I used to be a Voice Picker in Kilcock and it was an awful job. They expect too much from there employes too early on. The BSI targets are not possible at the start. I was slow at picking and one evening shift i was called into Dispatch and a very rude line manager told me i was holding everything up and holding the company back. Fellow co workers said the same i worked with the agency and they were awful aswell. Wasnt getting payed my proper wages. Over all my time in Musgrave was awful and ill never work there again. I can see now why no one wants to work there.
Pros
The lunches
Cons
Everything else

Worst place I have ever worked. I have worked on sites for years which usually is not easy place to work but this places tops it by a country mile for everything bad, from been very unsafe place to work to you been treated like pure dirt by management. Middle management (line managers etc) are just on an ego trip, want to show power over you. Want people in before shift begins but if take an extra minute for a break you are called up over this. You are on the clock nearly the whole time and to meet time targets are not realistic. Kilcock has toxic environment. Stay well away from this place. Company that keeps showin family values they hav no values towards there own employees.
Pros
Working in, goods in
Cons
To many to list

The company is using people. Managers and everyone who is higher in the position treat regular employees like nothing. Worst company ever in my life..

I was a picker and my BSI was above standard after a few months, Its a brainless job and most of the staff are really friendly and helpful but there is a lot of rats working there ready to report you for honest mistakes and minor mistakes,trying to promote themselves at your cost, so be wary, Your just a number to them so don't go the extra mile cause they wont,
Pros
Not having to deal with management most of the time
Cons
The job can be very repetitive

I worked for Musgrave at their distribution centre in kilcock for over four years, for anyone thinking of applying for a job in that place i would strongly advise against it if your want to keep your sanity.
Timed performance targets (bsi) are completely unfair and unachievable if you are to work in a safe maner,

Health and safety is a joke and managers from top to bottom are extremely disrespectful and ignorant.
Pros
Subsidised canteen / pool tables / sky tv
Cons
Health and safety/ ignorant managers / unrealistic time targets

Time constraints can feel too short and with everyone under the same time limits the work place can feel hostile at times. the pay is decent with a full canteen to get lunch and dinner in and reduced price vending machine were some benefits

You would start your day off grabbing a long legger from the long legger bay when you walk into the warehouse, and go to despatch to get your voice headset to start picking. I learned that to be a good member of any team in a warehouse you have to be fast paced and concentrated on the task at hand. The people in musgraves were friendly and welcoming. The hardest part of the job was keeping your Bsi up that's very tricky but you get the hang of it pretty quickly it just takes time. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that after your shift everyday you always put 100% effort in and are satisfied with your effort.
Pros
Good Pay
