Research the company, Be yourself, listen to who is doing the interview,

Loved working for the company, they looked after you as much as you looked after them, but saying that the customers in my head always came first, all the staff from cleaners to management were always friendly, if I was still in the area and fit enough in would still be working for them.

Pros

They could be flexible on lots of things

Cons

Hours could be a bit of a pain

The workplace can by pleasant with several people but is generally stressful with constant rushing about the target

I have worked for this Company for ower 9-years I started on production and then loading and the last 4-years I was delivery driver.A typical day starts with taking up your duties finding yourself in a general mess where Health and Safety is only on paper.You have be ready for constant reminder regarding the target.There are no bonuses you can only hear quite often Thanks for you hard work it is something but is very easy to lose motivation for work,at the end I can say that it is really stressful workplace where from the beginning I felt the problem of respecting other people

Professional company with family feel

Fantastic place to work. Great to have the job security of a business that is successful and well managed - putting the people who work here and its customers first. There are great opportunities to progress with supervisory, management, engineering and administrative NVQ's and Apprenticeship Schemes in place. The managers are also keen to see promotion from within for people who show willing. The job can be fast paced but when part of a successful team there is a great deal of satisfaction being one of the best laundries in the UK. I'm very proud to say I work here.

General manager

The only thing I can say I was glad to leave in the end, will never work in the laundry business again especially for this firm and their bully boy GM.

Don't listen to the managers, they lie !!!

Ok if you want to work every weekend and start every morning at 4 oclock, and then unless you're one of the in crowd you have to wait for your truck to be loaded !!!

Could have been better

This could have been a really good place to work if it wasn't lacking the engineers at the time to have a fair rotating shift pattern in place. Training was also limited due to lack of engineers and asked to do crazy shifts to ensure there was always one on shift.

Clas 2 driver

Very early starts, 4am until approx 5pm...relief drivers don't have a particular route so you end up being sent all over the place,your supposed to go with a nominated driver several times to get to know the route but this isn't long enough, common delays at 4am means your late setting off, your days off are scattered and changed so you can't plan your life, sometimes get sent out in the sprinter van which have no tacos so you get hammered for even more hours, often with the sprinter you have to handle mountains of loose soiled linen.... pay is decent if you enjoy going to bed at 8pm and up at 3.30am and doing a 12-13 hour day....other driver are great and helpful as are the MT guys but all in all it takes its toll on your life....

Pros

Good guys

Cons

Long hours and unable to plan personal life

operating

Operating heavy machines and set out targets but no compensation are paid if workers have any accident or injury and some staff members treat few workers as a slave and fighting and words exhange often take place between workers and staff , not worth risking your life.

Pros

short break

Cons

12 hours shift
