    I worked at Menzies Distribution full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of long-serving, loyal staff. A good, solid company to work for. Management are pretty flexible and reasonable too. Flexi-time available in some teams. Head office has a free on-site gym. Lovely office building

    Cons

    Rates of pay not great for some. No real benefits to speak of on top of salary. Difficult to recruit/develop staff if not offering competitive salaries.

    I worked at Menzies Distribution full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly and they'll all go out of their way to help you progress. If you're joining at the lower levels, the opportunity to progress to Management is fantastic. Show some initiative and ask for guidance etc and they'll have you into a management / project role sooner than you'd think!

    Cons

    The organisational structure leaves a lot to be desired. I'm sure this will all change though as part of the upcoming changes with DX.
