    A F Blakemore Supervisor, March 2021

  • Best thing

    Very family oriented. Always given time off (unpaid) for special school assemblies, sports days, sick child. I have also been able to bank my hours for time off (school holidays) rather than get paid if they’ve needed me to cover. 20 minute daily break. We are like one big family, we love most but with every family there’s always that annoying one. Most employees at my depot are long serving, if you don’t leave within 12 months you tend to stay forever, if you do leave nine times out of 10 you will come back.

    Worst thing

    When I started my wage was good but once minimum wage was introduced the gap has closed so majority get 1p above minimum wage.

  • Best thing

    Meeting new people, gaining confidence at speaking to people I don’t know.

    Worst thing

    It’s very quick paced, which isn’t a problem but if I found it really difficult to get everything done before my shift ends, I’d be judged for it.
