    I worked at XPO Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some nice colleagues made the terrible experience better.
    Free parking on site.
    Secure bike shed.

    Cons

    Lazy managers who expect you to know everything without being shown, absolutely no guidance or help provided.

    Managers on site are not willing to help but regional managers are always happy to help, it’s just unacceptable and shows the incompetence of management.

    HR took a very long time to give me my contract, I had to constantly remind them that I haven’t received my contract. Moreover I found that they do not actually follow their own procedures.

    Extremely high turnover rate so bare that in mind if you do accept a job here.

    Moreover there is a very high accident rate in the warehouse so I would avoid this depo.

    Unfortunately everyone seems to be out for themselves and will not hesitate to tell tales about you to make themselves look better. Very corrupt!

    Advice to Management

    Review management at Swindon 1, a lot of the managers are incompetent and therefore harmful for the business.

    I would recommend a leadership skills retraining course. I would recommend regional managers do a full investigation of managers at Swindon 1, reviewing their preforamce and seeing how they manage staff. Moreover managers should be reminded that personal feelings should not interfere with their work.

    The high accident rate definitely needs further investigation, it is the lack of management that is allowing these to keep happening.
