I enjoy and still working at Steinhoff. It's a good place to work at and looking for alternative doesn't mean they are not good. I would work there again, if I have to make a new choice.

If I could give less I would, hostile environment and lack of support. No one really knows the processes and management have no idea of how to help advisors, as they have no training about the business and the products they sell. It gets worse every year, it’s up for auction so possibly be the end for it soon

Great company - one of the largest retailer in the UK. It's a hard working organisation with a drive to succeed and everyone driving in the same direction year on year to continue to be number one in their sector.

Good job delivering Beds to Bensons and independent bed shops nationwide.
Would of most probably retired from here if I didn't relocate to Warrington.

I enjoyed this job as I travelled all over the UK Tramping from Monday to Friday.

Meeting various members of staff that worked within the industry.

Regional managers are bullies. Senior management are dinosaurs. How this company is still in business is beyond me. They do not care about staff or their customers. No urgency when there are issues with customers products

Coaching and development does not exist. If your face fits, your in, even when your results are poor. No wonder the business is in such a mess. Leadership failures exist everywhere.

Trunking money is got to be the best by far £31k salary is brilliant for class 1 work.
The trunking lorry’s ain’t up to much with regards to being looked after.

They’re beat up,pins are bent lights knocked off always running low on coolant.

Pods don’t sit right air pressure is always being lost.

Management are absolutely stuck up there own arses.

Rude,ignorant,arrogant and they all have that no can do attitude.

Worked here for nearly 6 months

When working at Steinhoff I found the working environment to be very toxic. Moral was low around the different department in the office due to management not pulling their weight, nor lightening employees work load. I found that work would be forced upon you and expected to be completed within in time frame with no praise on completion. Out of hours work on weekends and nights was expecting without overtime payment sometimes at Midnight onward. I found the working environment unsuitable and un-enjoyable.

Sales targets are everything in store and at regional level. Senior managers and directors just shout louder if you don't hit a target. Flavour of the month one day and the worst human being in the world the next. Don't work here. Really old fashioned poor culture and little, if any HR support.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible HR

Voor alle projecten zijn er project-schema's en voortgangsrapportages opgesteld. Iedere ochtend wordt er gestart met het opvragen van de statussen van de acties die die dag verlopen. Om achterstanden pro-actief te kunnen volgen gebeurd dit via e-mail.
Tegelijkertijd worden de openstaande e-mails van die ochtend weggewerkt, of wanneer actie vereist is, de acties ingepland voor later die dag of die week.

Dan volgt er een (wekelijkse) belronde naar alle projectmanagers om de voortgang en eventuele issues te rapporteren.

Hierna worden de actiepunten bijgewerkt en de projectdeelnemers geïnformeerd over de status en de feedback van de projectteams, stuurgroep en/of het management.

Ook uit deze feedback worden er actiepunten bijgewerkt en ingepland.

Dan loopt het al tegen de middag en worden de laatste -e-mails verzonden.

Na de middag wordt er wederom gekeken of er feedback is van de verzonden e-mails van die ochtend.

Vervolgens worden de actielijsten opnieuw samengesteld en verzonden naar alle projectdeelnemers.

Bij voorkeur heeft ieder project zijn eigen projectdag, om het werk zo goed mogelijk te kunnen voorbereiden. Deze voorbereiding bestaat uit het opstellen van een projectverslag (alle activiteiten hierboven vermeld incl. conclusies en actielijst)

Daarna volgt er via een webex-achtige oplossing teamoverleg met de projectgroep.

Na het teamoverleg worden de laatste rapportages bijgewerkt en bij het afsluiten van een project worden de projectsheets voorbereid voor de eindpresentatie aan het MT, management of de stuurgroep.

Morgen is wordt de hele riedel weer herhaald.

Started here a few weeks ago , my first job since leaving collage!! the pay is not the best but it was a job .. yesterday I was waiting for a frame to come down when middle manager came to me with a massive attitude and said I could be cleaning the ‘ leak ‘ over the other side I said I didnt know this and he started shouting so much that I could feel his spit on my face 🤮🤢 should anyone put up with that ? Respect is earned isn’t it ? Well after me challenging his attitude towards me I got the sack , being an agency worker what could I actually do ? They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it !!
And maybe middle men should be put on courses of how to treat their staff in situations!!

Also the pay grades to agency and staff who are permanent is different!! Isn’t it law to pay the same while doing the same job ?

All in all such a horrible place to work , get shouted at and then challenged him to get sacked 😱

So advice to anyone looking to be the dogs body DONT speak up get treated like a nobody and you will be fine
Pros
None
Cons
Lots .. heavy hard work
