      I worked at Dee Set Logistics part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Flexible working around other commitments.

      Cons

      Not being paid mileage to other shops. Poor pay compared to supermarket staff. Poor training. Low expectations.

      Advice to Management

      Pay at least what the staff are being paid in the supermarkets where you operate, we have more responsibility. Listen more. Pay mileage. Get rid of Morrison’s off uniform. Train better and be realistic.

      I worked at Dee Set Logistics part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Part time hours for those that can't do full, seems an easy enough job.

      Cons

      Small team, lies about contract hours, unorganised, pay

      Advice to Management

      At least give former employees time to fill in time sheet before closing their colleague portal account down, notice given day1, went to account day2 no access so cannot input hours worked so I won't get paid. Don't advertise job as certain hours to then find theirs hardly any staff and they require lots of overtime from you straight away.

      I worked at Dee Set Logistics part-time

      Pros

      Manager was nice other than that not much to say.

      Cons

      -Too much work given in the four hour shifts -treat you horribly although my manager was nice but the head offices were obnoxious. -paid very little - so much training is needed yet barely anything is given -I was only two weeks into the job yet the manager decided to take a holiday and leave me with everything even though I knew barely anything as I was still new myself? -they give you way too much work to do...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your workers. Stop paying them little and making them work so much and giving them such little time to do everything. Offer help and support to your workers rather than leaving them out in the open with virtually no training them blaming them when something goes wrong. In the few months I was there, I saw 2 staff quit which forced me to work extra hours which I was not happy about.

        Make yourself a cuppa as the list is looong! Now I expect I will get a generic thanks for your feedback type of reply for this from Mr phillips but don't worry it won't hurt my feelings as like 95% of the staff I have spoke too we no longer care.the only reason for this review is to warn people if they think of applying for any merchandising job with Dee set then throw a cold bucket of water over your face to regain your...

        Advice to Management

        Open your eyes and Clean your ears out so you can hear and see what your merchandisers are trying to tell you. Without us the company wouldn't be where it is today. Show us some respect and improve the job before you lose all your staff... Bet this falls on deft ears :(

        I worked at Dee Set Logistics part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        When I started wasn’t bad at all,zero hour contract and plenty of hours.Took a turn for the worst when the company started losing work and management changed.Total lack of support and communication.Work became a free for all and wasn’t unusual to wake up and find work had vanished as it had been given to the new favourites.Felt bullied and intimidated and sadly no one to voice concerns too.Most of the ‘old’ staff had...

        Working life a misery.Bullied,intimidated with no regard for staffs well being

        Advice to Management

        Stop ignoring the issues and complaints and start facing the facts you have a problem! I’m not suprised the company loses so much work

        Pros

        Absolutely NONE! I can think of

        Cons

        Where do I start! If want to work for an unethical company and be treated like a idiot, feeling both useless and demoralised. Then Dee Set is the company for you! When you start your journey with Dee Set, you will come to realised that what's actually expected of you and the work you'll be doing. Will be completely different to what you were (lied) told during your 'interview'. You will receive absolutely NO! training....
