Harsh working environment
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAOctober 15, 2018
Work hours are extremely harsh. You never know when you are about to get off. You have to work until finish, so sometimes you might do a regular eight hour shift and sometimes you may do a 15 hour shift.
Pros
two paid 15 mins break
Cons
too many hours and not enough pay and breaks

Things need to change
Clerk (Current Employee) –  Murray, KYOctober 11, 2018
Poor management. Poor pay for the work you have to do. Stressful. Adults that act like 2yrs old. Too many favorites. Favorite well special treatment like playing on your cellphone, just talking not working. No one is held accountable for the actions. Everyone feels intitled...Work you butt off nothing. No advancement. Insurance is fair. No rewards for the hard workers. Not a career workplace. Rude employee's. Not enough training. Someone who has been there for a few days probably will be training. No uniformity. When cooperate comes management acts fake. Would love to see alit of changes with new warehouse manager. Needs a new opertions manager. Golden rule; treat others the way you want treated. Hoping for change. And a real pay increase. Better and UPDATED equipment. Feels like we live in the stone age. Respect your employee. We are told that we are replaceable. Be the company you say you are....Bunzl
Pros
Some great hard workers
Cons
Poor management. Poor pay.

Bunzl wasn't that bad it's just was sometimes difficult to pick the product because of how dangerous it was to pick in the racks.
Inventory Control Clerk (Former Employee) –  Lithia Springs, GAOctober 8, 2018
For bunzl to be a Fortune 500 company it was not ran like one of the warehouse was very dirty the racking was bad it was very dangerous to pick orders. The rap machine always broke down you had to pick rap and load your own product you did three or four jobs and really got paid to do one job
Pros
The pay was decent but they could have paid more
Cons
Long hours don't know when you going to get a raise overworked lack of staff

This company does NOT care about anything but it's own profit.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 30, 2018
I worked for this company for 10+ years and in the end the stress disabled me. Management is a joke. You have to be in a click to just be accepted. You work your butt off with little to no appreciation and one minor mistake will mess your stability with the company. They do not care about their employees. Wait they do care on the level of benefiting the higher ups. Saw so much corruption in the company.
Pros
I got a paid
Cons
The whole company

Administrative Assistant I (Former Employee) –  Fridley, MNAugust 14, 2018
Bunzle was a great company to work for as a business but the culture at was not ideal. It was stable, and I liked what I did, but very emotionally draining because of the people around me. The advancements were promised, but never followed through with. There wasn't nearly as much collaboration within teams and departments.

Exciting and Goal-Driven
Packer/Picker (Current Employee) –  TennesseeAugust 11, 2018
Great compensation and full benefit package is a major win. Opportunities for advancement are available. Staff friendly and helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Upper management is strict but fair. Culture and morale depends on the individual's job satisfaction and attitude. Many loyal full time associates, with a smattering of temporary employees during peak seasons. Dedicated temps are typically hired within three months of service. Emphasis on employee safety regularly enforced. Premiums awarded for weekend work. Employees are recognized for teamwork and strong work ethic. Contests and events keep worklife happy. Teams are allowed twenty minutes for calisthenics before beginning work.

Bottom line -- if you are willing to work, you will be rewarded at Bunzl.
Pros
Equality-driven, environmentally sustainable
Cons
Inefficient software, outdated infrastructure

Warehouse setting in an economically depressed region
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Murray, KYAugust 5, 2018
Arrive at work to clock in and process incoming merchandise.
1/2 hour non paid lunch break. Typical 10 minute breaks; mid morn & mid afternoon. Facility is not well heated or cooled. Work until the merchandise is processed. Some days require OT and some days you are sent home early with no pay...voluntary or mandatory. Just depends. At this location, it seems to be feast or famine but it is definitely not a true full time job as was originally stated during the hiring process.
Been thru 2 managers; each not skilled in their assignments. Poor management makes for tough employee retention and low workplace morale...this place suffers both.
Management does not appreciate their employees. Its obvious. No respect provided human to human. Sad situation. Favoritism based on gender is in practice. Creates an atmosphere of degradation.
Hardest part of the job is tolerating the managerial attitude and daily personality display.
Some of the co-workers are great ppl.
Pros
Its a paycheck with some good health benefits.
Cons
Toxic managers, inadequate training, feast or famine hours, lousy physical environment

Poor management leads to unproductive and unhappy employees
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Murray, KYJuly 23, 2018
I was excited about working here when I was offered the job at a decent salary for my area, 40-50 hrs a week. Sadly, that only lasted 2 weeks. Mandatory overtime with little notice and no compassion for employees with planned vacations or those that care for ill relatives. They cannot keep enough staff to get job done, so supervisors end up with making same as hourly employees because they are paid a salary barely over the limit for having to pay overtime. Injuries and accidents abound due to their inability to properly train and retain staff. OSHA accident waiting to happen under current Operations management.

These large employers should realize that happy employees produce and stay with a job much longer than people who are treated like dirt. Production numbers would not be an issue if they could retain employees longer than 1 week.

Lots of Hours
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  West Boylston, MAJuly 22, 2018
It was a warehouse job with unlimited hours, which if you are interested in that it is a good fit. I felt there was no life work balance at all. The work was as I expected, I just decided to move to a different career
Pros
Overtime, good pay, limited supervision
Cons
Too many hours if you are not looking for that
