Does Ocado Group offer employee discounts?

Pros

Free parking 15% discount as well as other discounts on sister company’s Finish early still get paid ( if you can get through the van wash in less than an hour! ) Free shares if you’ve been in long enough as well as health care after a year.

Cons

If you work a 10hr shift ( rota) you get sent to London or the city of London most days. Vans are always dirty and have defects. 900kg of shopping to deliver everyday with flats that have no lift being the ones who order mostly bottled water and you are expected to take it up. If you raise any issue with management they will just laugh it off and nothing will get done even if it’s a health and safety issue.

Advice to Management

A happy workforce is a productive workforce! Also if the workforce is happy that gets past to your customers! Management are glorified drivers who have done there time with the company and have little to no management experience or qualities between them.

Does Ocado Group offer life insurance?

Pros

You get life insurance, and the chance to go from there with anxiety issues and depression 😉

Cons

The management is not the best, you get treated like a piece of “cake” by some of them

Advice to Management

Try and get trained in how to talk to your people and not to exploit them at the maximum, remember we are all human, it doesn’t matter if some of us are wearing red or green, we’re all the same. Do you remember one of our values? “Value each person”...ohhh yeah it doesn’t exist anymore because at Ocado you don’t get appreciation for your hard work...only file notes and threatened that you’ll be investigated if you don’t do what they want!
