The job isnt easy its hard work and sometimes stressfull but they pay you well for it. If your looking for a job where you want to sit on a chair and do nothing all day then dont bother applying. I can only say this job is what you call a marmite job you either like it or you dont there is no inbetween in this, but me I love it.

Managers have no patience with staff... treat staff like dirt... humiliate staff... The money is okay but the hours are long and transport is a nightmare but all in all a pretty good company to work for

Great wages, but the job itself is a 2 man job. If it was drop and go, I would have stayed with them,but it's back breaking. Delivering to well known chicken outlets,with what looks like slurry all over the floor and constantly slipping,while the staff watch you struggle,is not my idea of fun. Theres also no sick pay,so if you damage your knees or back, which you will...no pay.

I enjoyed working here as it suited my home life and I could manage it around my partners work and children's school. Management rotated a lot with not much room for promotion with in, unless your face fitted. I would recommend working here.
Pros
paid lunch
Cons
overtime reduced

What I don't like about the company is we did not have exact time to knock off. We would knock off at 00:00 midnight, but we didn't have transport that will take us home. It was risky working there.

It is a very challenging campaign, there is so much pressure as the targets are high because the premiums for the roadside assistance are so low and the cancellation ratio is also very high.

Bidvest, Richmond. Picker/packer, 8 hour plus shifts then xpected to load trucks. Hard yakka and no time and a half or xtra money. Nightshift boss a bully. Told me I had to load trucks yet not in my contract. When complaint to management of workplace bullying they didn't want to know me.honestly not a good culture. Staff don't back each other when needed. I would not recommend. as a workplace

Working for a massive international company was a privilege and many benefits were available when needed. As a result of full time permanent position I was rewarded with various benefits. The night shift was difficult to adapt to. I worked nights for 9 months and I only recommend this position for the right postion.
Pros
Incentives and Weekend Work
Cons
Night Shift and freezer work

I did not enjoy my time here. Unless management has changed then it is not a comfortable working environment considering the management made you responsible for their mistakes.
