    Tiring but nice

    Casual Christmas Parcel Sorter (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI worked only over the christmas period, the people were lovely and we were allowed to listen to our own music and the like as long as you were paying attention to your surroundings, so I managed to listen to quite a few great lectures while working.

    ConsNight-shift and endless sorting of parcels can be tiring when you're standing for hours and lead to back pain, but with a bit of ibuprofen you get used to it.

    Very Happy

    Training and Development (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsHad some great years there. Pleasure to go work. Felt a part of something special and strong branding.

    ConsIt is a big company and you can get lost in the crowd. Many of the staff are frightened to take a risk for fear of losing their job. Sometimes difficult to do things due to funding limitations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI met some great managers and some not so good. Fairly typical of a large employer.
