    4.6

    Evri (formerly Hermes) Warehouse operative, May 2024

  • Best thing

    Colleagues I work with. We are seperate to the rest of the warehouse working as part of the assets team we regulate ourself most of the time.

    Worst thing

    Treated as a number, poorly paid. People only progress by who you know not what you know, and if you keep your mouth shut and don't try to think or give suggestions...just blindly follow orders, mostly from people that don't really know what they are doing, less experienced than yourself.
