    I have been working at Parcelforce Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional, loyalty, quality driven, can-do-attitude. Focussed, friendly and willing to listen to its staff. Understands its position in the market and thrives on getting things done

    Inflexible at times. A big beast to move as quick as it needs to sometimes, albeit getting alot better at moving at a pace with the sector in operates in

    I worked at Parcelforce Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    The main Staff were friendly and the pay, comparatively was quite good for the low work load

    Cons

    its warehouse work so its a bit dim and dirty

    Team leaders were decent as they were basically just one of the normal workers. management were rarely there and didnt really show much interest.

    as it is a warehouse, available shifts are usually packed towards the evening 2-10 times.
