    I have been working at Wincanton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly team. Good pay. On site learning (Level 2 and 3)available.

    Cons

    Out of date office equipment. No staff discount in stores that we service. No career progression available.

    Advice to Management

    My direct line manager is wonderful, always does the best for her team. Regading the management in general - the company should invest in new equipment so the staff can do their job without delay. Step up career opportunities would be great as well. Ugly uniform, could be more smart.
