"There's a people-focused culture and the company focuses on trying to treat people in the right way. It can be challenging to get some members of staff to cooperate and work with you, especially on the shop-floor level (in particular in the warehouse). I socialise fairly often with the people I work with."
Graduate, Crewe
"It's a 24-hour operation with shift work. There's little socialising among colleagues outside of work but a very strong people-ethos and a dedicated team. The people who you work alongside make the company."
Mid level, Stone
"There are a lot of small teams within departments and they all have a largely flat hierarchy. This is especially true at head office down in Basingstoke, which means that climbing up the corporate ladder can be daunting. The culture is very welcoming and the company values every new employee as well as those who have been around for a while. It honours those who have been around with awards and welcomes new graduates in a similar fashion (a central induction held at a nice hotel in Basingstoke). However, it doesn't have a very big social culture as a whole. This does differ from location to location and it tends to be more sociable in depots than the offices. Teamwork is a big thing (most of the time) although I think this depends on who the managers are."
