A typical day at work for a picker/packer involves packing stock, shifting boxes etc. Can be hard physical labour but doable work. Work environment is okay.

Management obsessed with targets when it is not even necessary. You are asked the impossible in minus 40 freezer and in that cold it is exhausting. Managers don't understand what they are asking as they have never done it, and indeed could never do what they ask.
Only skinny people work there, unless managers.

It was a great place to work, the team I worked with was what made it a great environment. The management however were against us not with us, some bullying from certain management was common practice, so a back bone and voice are key for anyone who is going to work full time. The agency workers are treated so poorly. Management has changed now I believe,so the culture may be better.

Managers expect you to finish jobs ASAP but those jobs weren't ready, or were already gone, or simply were incorrect

But if you're unable to do them that is your problem.
Pros
Good pay for easy work
Cons
Terrible clueless management

Bad management, job it’s self is rubbish! you have to hand ball at every delivery. If delivering at either premier inn or costa shops, most of it is in cages but you have to handball all the food up stairs, down stairs not to mention some of the delivery points you have to push cages over horrible ground and up or down inclines, oh man it’s stressful with no help. Average 17 drops a day within a 100 mile radius of Wellingborough. I wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy

Worst place to work. Bad management, bad organisation. Managers are to stupid to handle all the resposabilities. You need to work a few week to be convinced that you don’t want to work there anymore. Managers are raciest and uneducated. Good luck!

Good job ,people not so friendly and helpful as I would have expected to be. Training has been not satisfying as I had to pick up from the colleagues the information , No trainer has done the training as it should normally be .The rest was a decent job with big expectations from management but process training was a mess.

Fast paced environment, on your feet and time flies. This job keeps your hands and mind busy. The job was satisfying and when you went home at the end of the day you felt your work had made a difference for the day

Could be sat waiting for a trailer for up to 5 hours, warehouse and management struggle to communicate. Fairly advance fleet, all DAF xf. Fleet not very clean, definitely carry some anti bacterial wipes. When it runs well, it runs well, but not very often.
Pros
Salary pay with overtime, job security, good bunch of guys
Cons
Long hours, start times all over the place, management not really interested.

Terrible place to work honestly please if you are reading this do not do it !! the vehicles are never loaded on time so your told to start at 6.30am you get in to be told to wait in the canteen could be waiting 2 hours and the transport office could not care less about it. When you are loaded you have lots of paper work to do before leaving the site and if your lucky you will have your load in totes but lately they have been putting everything on pallets so the driver has to sort through the delivery before delivering the correct items to the customer and make sure you deliver the correct items or expect a roasting when you get back to the depot! the machine they give you with your days work load on which also doubles up as a sat nav never takes you to where you need to go even though someone that works there has uploaded this information on to the devise they have even uploaded where the depot is wrongly which I found absolutely hilarious, make sure you do not go on a contract or expect to do 3 to 5 hours more a day you will not get paid for, go on agency so at least you get paid by the hour they have a agency office in there main building pretemps which tells you a lot about staff turn over!! weigh bridge has not been working for a few months now so you never know if you are driving an overloaded vehicle, the vehicles are tracked and you will get another roasting for harsh braking (sometimes this can't be helped) harsh acceleration (somthimes this can't be helped) harsh cornering and speeding don't get me wrong they need to know where there drivers are but it seems to be all - more...

Enjoy working in the freezer department at -28 degrees as I enjoy challenges. Management is okay once you are given your designated area you get left alone to get on with your job

I have been in K&N for 7 years so far,
I have learned a lot, as I have start my work as Agency worker, and then been promoted few times up to Configuration Team Leader.


Kuehne&Nagel is good place to work, with plenty room for progression, Managers give most of employee's opportunity to develop their skills.
