Warehouse assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester – 10 January 2013
I worked at wolseley at first thought it was a good job then that's when they throw you in at deep end staff not trained to do their jobs properly. The management had no people skills what so ever. Management would regularly shout at members of staff in front of customers. People would start working for the company on different wages even if was the same hours and roles. The workload is unmanageable there is so much you don't have time to think. Stocktake is even worse have to start at 7am til 10pm with no lunch provided or tea and you never get any gratitude It's the worst place I have ever experienced in my 20 years of warehouse work

was a good place to have a career in the Wholesale business. I learned a lot, both from Wolseley and our customers.The company provided lots of training for the employees and always was willing to help if the need arose

Lack of training, you need to belong to the clique with management to get any respect. Managers are like slobs. It's like putting lipstick on a pig. No organization when moving two branches together. It's like backing a dump truck up and dumping everything into a pile. Always taking counter staff from branch and sending them to other branches so that would leave so called flagship branch short staffed. Co workers were good, management terrible, should have been captain of the the Titanic and then they still couldn't sink it properly.
