long hours and a lot of extra days, no life and work balance. learn a lot since they have a lot of trainings that you can take online. Management make a lot of changes and don't let the last change to work before they change it again.

warehouse operative (Former Employee), Birmingham, ENG – February 6, 2014
Pros: one lunch 30 min
I pulled the clothes out of the box and put my clothes on the table. Composing them type and size. I was counting how many of each type and size and save. everything in the documents. Then I did use to the processing of manual gan. Later printed tickets with prize at a special machine. When I have the tickets I put them to spread things later did tickting – more... and tagging. As I already had it all done and done fast track and send clothes for this store. when I have more things to toots was putting them on pallets. and it was put away. – less
DC Manager (Former Employee), Midrand, GP – February 5, 2014
Pros: support of customer
Cons: red tape
The hub became a place where my team enjoyed their work and wanted to be everyday. This did not come easy and took allot of hard work dedication and commitment of all involved. One of the hardest part of my experience there was when the customer changed their software program. Learning was done by web-ex which did not make it easier to understand. All – more... learned was by trial and error. This resulted in the operational SLA's dropping drastically . It was a great accomplishment to take each problem and find permanent resolution. Four weeks later the warehouse was on top form and performed like a well oiled machine. During April 2013 a storm hit the Midrand destroying the warehouse roof making the building unsafe to work in. My team moved our stock and with the support of the I T department the operation was ready for duty within 48 hours without any stock loss. This was the first warehouse of the company to put into action the Disaster recovery plan in South Africa with success My highlight of this position is the people, Bringing different cultures together in a non racial environment to be described by the team as the "dream team"
It is with great sadness that due to us not having qualified L3 technicians to do repairs the company was not invited to tender on the new RFQ requirements therefore the contract was awarded to another company and our hub closed and the employees retrenched. – less

Pros: secure off street parking
Cons: multiple managers for dept kept things confusing.
Typically i would packing goods for dispatch keeping a close eye on product detail and condition and ensuring correct shipping labels were on each parcel, working with a variety of people, learning to communicate on many levels was useful. hardest part of the job was knowing that being seasonal work your good effort and help would be soon coming to – more... an end. Most enjoyable part of this job was over coming language barriers to enable good working ethics making everything run smoothly. – less
