Best warehouses to work for

26% of the companies on Breakroom employ warehouse workers. As more of us now shop online, the demand for warehouse workers has shot up.

However, it’s not just online shops that hire warehouse workers: all sorts of businesses need goods and materials stored, picked and packed up. Supermarkets, food suppliers and manufacturers all use warehouses too.

There are only a few qualifications needed to work in a warehouse. In some cases you just need the right to work in the UK. Warehouse jobs are therefore open to lots of people.

With an estimated 1,500 warehouses in the UK, it’s worth looking into which warehouses are the best to work for.

Here's a breakdown of what we'll be covering:
