    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


  2. "Excellent place to work"
