It was good, fast, workers were awesome, some supervisors were overrated. Forklifts were well maintained. Overall, I personally liked working at Bunzl.


Good discounts for workers


Shortage of forklifts because of too many shifts

Poor management

I started at BUNZL as a casual thru an agency, but was given a ft position after 2months. BUNZL is an unorganised facility that was poorly run & managed creating an atmosphere of 'every man for themselves' & no team effort. WMS & machinery outdated & unreliable. Walk to very end of warehouse for forklift but charging bay is empty, its a long walk all the way back. If one is available, its the one that raises 3 bays high & not the 6 bays required. Therefore ur unable to pick/replenish meaning ur not meeting kpi's. Rf scanners constantly dying (batt power) or need rebooting. Imperative u keep 2 batt packs on u at start of shift to combat that. No acknowledgment unless its negative & little support as well. And finally, the Pay was minimal with no incentives as they claim to be on offer.


Close to public transport (bus)


Too many

From my 20+ years in warehousing BUNZL was the worst unorganised, poorly managed warehouse.

BUNZL is the worst poorly managed company by incompetent and inexperienced managers. Managers were never interacting with warehouse staff. The WHMS was poorly operated, RF scanners were 2nd as were the portable label printers. Imagine having to pick a full pallet, say 40 cartons and the WHMS made you pick 12 cartons from a full pallet in one location then picking the balance of 28 cartons from a full pallet from another location. This is a constant waste of time system. Dust were collected on nearly all products, especially medical goods. Yes. Medical goods. Management is constantly changing as they can’t manage the company due to no proper procedures and poor warehouse managing system. Every Wednesday, 30mins prior to finishing work were toolbox meetings. It was basically based on management reflecting their negative progress at the fault of staff. Nothing positive to say. Inexperienced Management were a complete failure. Wages for the headache of a job was next to working at McDonald’s.
