Night Shifts/day shifts
Work varies from Catering to Shop floor.
Catering always challenging job -pay acceptable for a day shift.
Shop floor repetitive but fun -nights pay not enough at only £9.50 p/h.
ConsCan be long hours, often work is in remote places.

Great Place to work
Excellent company to work for with lots of ties to jig companies such as parcel force, did, the national health services and much more. Staff are great
ProsWork when you want
Unsatisfactory and disgusting
Personally, when I worked at the Co-Operative Castlewood warehouse I found the management and whole work environment very negative. The conditions in which they made you work were unsatisfactory. One example of this, is that it is a food factory so cleanliness is a very important factor to take into account but the amount of warehouse operatives they pulled away from their duties to take care of rats and remove them was crazy. As an employee who is there to be productive and help maintain the workload you should not be expected to drop your duties to take care of large rats that were running around the warehouse near food and drink that would later be loaded and still sent to stores across the East Midlands.
I have worked for blue arrow in various locations. They are always there to listen and solve any problems that arise, they are informative about positions available
During my time working with Blue Arrow, i picked up many skills such as organising, sticking to a tight schedule, communicating and customer service. I would be happy to work for this company again.
good to work for
not always noing the job before being placed
travelled all over one job one day another the next last minute changes into nursing homes were not sorted for change over of dutys

I worked with Blue arrow for 9yrs throughout my education and they have always treated me well and they're loyal to their regular employees

Never had a bad temp job from Blue Arrow but unfortunately as it is only on a temporary basis it is hard to plan around and difficult to leave when you feel settled in a good job but only get to stay for a few weeks.

Very high level of management.
I was very happy to work in this company. I learned every thing about work in warehouse.
ConsI did not get full time because I cant do rotation, I study English and for me very important stable time sheet.

Poor staff welfare .
Please their staff welfare is something they really need to improve on.
The interest of their staff are not protected in their designated work unit hence exposing staffs to horrible treatment from employers.
