Don't work at Bunzl
Logistics Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAApril 24, 2017
Terrible company, who does not care about there employees at all. They have an extremely high turn over rate for a reason. Pay is good for a warehouse, but in the end it's not worth it.
Pros

Great place to work! Leaving due to relocation and would have loved to remain with the company. The company is in growth mode and the future looks great. I would highly recommend Bunzl to anyone.

A lot of hours and hard work but benefits and the managements positive interaction with their associates made it a nice place to work.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Romeoville, ILMarch 20, 2017
I would start my day picking orders to ship out and then would switch to loading trucks in the end part of the day.
Management was very attentive to us and treated us like part of the company.
Work was hectic at times but as long as you came to work and did your job it went by quickly.
The hardest part of the job was the long hours and heavy lifting at times.
The benefits and incentives were the best part of my job.
Pros
Great benefits and incentives
Cons
Long hours and a lot of heavy lifting

The management team does not care about employees. They expect you to work overtime with little to no notice. They are rude and don't care in Murray Ky

Good job
Forklift Operator/Cherry Picker (Former Employee) –  KansasFebruary 8, 2017
A typical day at work starts at 2:30 safety meeting and equipment check then start getting work orders. What I learned is safety and time management is very important. Workplace culture is good place if you have hard work ethics. The hardest part of the job is the uncertain time you finish your work day 12 plus hours some days. The most enjoyable part of the job was the employees

Typical day at work
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MO 63146January 31, 2017
A typical day at Bunzl is a hard working day. I came in contact with many items I have never seen before and have seen what some stores order. Management was a struggle because of their outside problems. Supervisors would take their anger out on the workers and made me feel like they were going to fire me everyday. Workplace culture was good as co-workers we helped each other as much as possible. Hardest part of the job was picking up the really heavy boxes. Most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I got all my work done without error.
Pros
Sometimes we got out of work early.
Cons
Long nights sometimes no breaks

Lumper
Lumper (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 16, 2017
This job had good hours that worked great with my coaching schedule, but there is no communication with management at all. The only communication is through text messaging. You have to send a picture of your time card to get paid. Also your responsible for turning in all money at the end of the week. The catch to turning in the money was you had to clock out, go to fed x and ship the money, send a picture of the receipt to management. There is never a live person to deal with and you have to go turn in their money off the clock.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
All text communication, work off the clock

Good company/ understaffed though
Night Supervisor (Former Employee) –  St. LouisOctober 8, 2015
Solid company, but in my opinion grew too large and management lost sight with bottom employees. They like to operate on an minimal employee basis. In cause overwhelming departments.
Pros
Benefits, my fellow co- workers
Cons
Unwilling to listen to lower departments

No care for human life. 70 hour weeks, week after week
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  West Boylston, MAMay 19, 2015
Very poor environment, safety is not considered. 16 hour shifts day after day. Pay is decent but going in at 2PM and not getting out until after 6am sometimes leaves you too tired to safely drive home. Overtime is mandatory. Part of a very poorly run self serving union.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
No life, no time with family. Sleep and work THAT'S IT!!!
