Pros

absolutly none, treated like dirt, poorly paid expected to work overtime for nothing and then they bring in new drivers with no experience and pay them more money . the only good thing about jewson is the day you leave and join the real job market paying proper wages. too many cheifs with expense accounts and company cars that dont directly profit the company and who seem to have the sole task of keeping theirselves in a cushy little job doing nothing and im sorry i have read your guidlines but their is absolutly nothing good i can think of to recommend this lot.

Cons

read the above. they pay rubbish wages they took away the bonus they took away our overtime pay but kept the extra work.

Advice to Management

try raising the moral of your staff. get the yard boys off minimum wage. pay your drivers a decent wage and bring back some inncentive. the frequently quoted phrase if you dont like it you know where the door is .. is not the way to go as thats what all the best staff do.. walk out to decent jobs and your left with the dross

    Pros

    Start time 0730 finish 1700 or earlier if i was done i also worked after 1700 but the early s out weighed the lates Able to purchase products at great reductions I was trained up for fork lift truck to load my lorry or serve customers

    Cons

    Not enough well trained staff in most yards i was lucky i had three first class yard men most yards are so out dated they are an embarrassment leaking roofs so much damaged stock it beggers belief Too many youngsters being taken on who have no idea of how things should be run not trained properly either most of the good ones leave anyway H and R really is when it suits them i refused to be loaded high before going out too many unstable loads noted in other branches Attitude was also a problem this was mainly caused through customers who really thought yard staff were garbage delivery drivers coming in and thinking they are more important than anyone else office staff who thought that a full lorry load could just be grabbed off the shelf and sent out they also lie to customers about stock saying it will be out first thing when in many cases they havnt got it in stock. Office staff have a lot to held up for sales thats the sum total no matter that a builder is on site first thing and it isnt even on for delivery I have delivered stock to a customer at 0745 in the morning saying hows that for service to be told well they sais it was on you yesterday at this time even said it was on you at 0900 but bgy 1000 i had had enough so went to another job . The afternoon previous to this day at 1500 i was sent to one of our yards to collect the stock for delivery next day. Managers come in all shapes some good some bad goods ones usually don't stay long and really good ones wouldn't touch Jewson with a barge pole. Area managers and above are just brain dead morons no other description fits Pay is another issue i know people who have been there many years on £12500 a year others doing the same jobs getting £17500.... old drivers on around 16500-17500 then along comes a newby and jumps straight to 18500-23000 Lorries now have these ridiculous restraint bars fitted these are causing many problems to drivers and yard staff alike. Yard staff refused to drop or lift my sides as they were a menace a danger to our health in fact and what did Jewson do ..nothing just empty promises to get it sorted Human resources have nobody to help you Basically Jewsons know one thing SALES is everything Is it any wonder they are stacked out with court cases for compensayshun yes every one knows what that is

    Advice to Management

    Too late to turn things roud falling sales customers moving to bewtter companies great staff also moving is it any wonder
