    I worked at Wincanton full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Do you remember the time we got all the loads finished and our gaffer said you can go when all loads are shut and paperwork handed into the Office!!

    Cons

    Getting your products Marshalled to the bay for despatch on time as long as you have the stock to complete your order!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to your staff when required if they work hard for you show them the respect they deserve!!
