Catering Assistant | Doncaster | 16 Jan 2021
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.

Designer | East Midlands | 18 Apr 2018
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.

Temporary work
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.

The company has been good to me since the day I started working.
Most of the company they send me to are well organise. They help with my day to day job, they show me around the company and they introduce me to all the staff member.

Asked 1 Nov 2018
They don't seem to care in the January month when not a lot of works available, its not their fault but they could explain the situation a bit better,and answer the phone when you ring scent
Answered 3 Jun 2020
Being sent to jobs that's costing me more in travel expenses and at times not having work each week.Some people may be able to do this but I couldn't, but a good agency otherwise. I would recommend them,but have saving in place to get by on when no works available.
