Great Place to work but stressful at times
Warehouse laborer (Current Employee), Dartmouth, NSAugust 5, 2013
Pros: free lunches and morning coffee, work clothes and boots provided for free
Cons: low pay, odd hours at times
A typical day runs from 9 am to 6 pm and that depends on how busy the day is. all orders must be done before anyone can leave. generally it is not strange to have some days that run from 9 am to 8 pm. that is the hardest part of the job, to be able to focus and not make any mistakes during these long days is a great learning experience that will be – more... valuable in all my future work. – less

Going nowhere fast....
Marketing Administrator (Former Employee), Telford, ENGJuly 3, 2014
Cons: no progression
During the working day I would be allocated a number of quotations that needed to be processed in relation to sourcing specialist stationary products for clients.
I learned how to use the SAP system and gained a great knowledge of the product market, as well as where to source particular products.
I found the management they had a very much if the face – more... fits approach and favourtism within the department which meant progression was difficult,
I got on with some of the co-workers here, but again there was a lot of favouritism within the teams.
The hardest part of the job was finding alternative products for customers where things were out of stock, or orders had been delayed.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the variety of requests that we would get in from customers – less

Good company to work for
Senior Sales Account Manager (Former Employee), Milton Keynes/Leighton BuzzardJune 4, 2014
Pros: lots of perks
Cons: targets can be tedious
If it wasn't for all the paperwork and a target for every part of your business, I would never have left. I found it difficult to earn the commission toward the end of my career. Top earners will do well though. Great company to work for if you work hard at it

Fork lift truck driver (Former Employee), Telford, ENGMarch 28, 2014
Pros: freindly people.
Cons: could not cope with the changing shift pattern.
This job was run on alternate shifts, one week 9 till 6 and the next 6 till 2. I really struggled with this pattern so often I would do double shifts. I started as a fork lift truck driver and made my way up to the stock replenishment team. This was really enjoyable as I was always trying to find lost stock. I had to leave this job and return to Wellesbourne.

lyreco expects to much for to little
driver (Current Employee), englandJune 9, 2013
Pros: its a job
Cons: long hours, other rounds drops, silly meetings, hitler boss
paid £1500 a year for 40 hours a week,so anything over the 40 hours you get nothing extra.. most weeks are 45 to 50 hours easy..
they have a red naughty book,which you get put in and its then read out at a drivers meeting,which is at the start of your shift,so by the end your runing late,so its your time,not theirs at the end of the day,sales reps takes – more... on drops without veiwing them,and some drops take 20 mins each,so if you have 20 boxes of a4 copy paper,and their point of del is 3 flights of stairs up,you have to take them up..and your expected to do 40 a day,or more,and this is after you have routed up,loaded up,and then go out and do them,all in 8 hours.and if you go in early,your not allowed to put it down on paper..so if you start at 6am,you have to put down 6.30am..WTD out the window – less

Field Sales Representative (Current Employee), FifeOctober 16, 2012
Pros: company car
Cons: micro management styles
I liked Lyreco when I started as they were all behind you until they started asking for more and more. In the current financial climate companies are facing more and more is a high pressure environment for so little reward.

dag als chauffeur bij lyreco
chauffeur lyreco (Current Employee), etten leurNovember 5, 2014
Pros: werken met klanten
Cons: het is niet echt een team
De dag begint om 6:30 met het plannen van je route en daarna het laden van je wagen .
Gemiddeld rijden we rond half 8 weg om de pakketten te bezorgen . tussen de 35 en 40 klanten gemiddeld .
Het leukste aan het werk is dat je elke dag met klanten te maken hebt en je de pakketen leverd waar hun het willen hebben zodat je de naam van het bedrijf hoog – more... houd.
s'ochtends ben je met je collega's de wagens aan het laden de rest van de dag ben je alleen .
Het moeilijkste is dat je soms met tijddruk te maken hebt omdat je bv het centum anders niet meer in kan en dat je soms veel moet sjouwen naar verdiepingen bij gebouwen waar geen lift is soms ergonomisch niet verantwoord maar ja de service staat hoog .
Omdat ik graag met mensen werk en elke dag een glimlach zie is het wel een leuke baan . – less
