They pay peanuts. Never seen my manager, not sure there even is one. Lied to me about the job and wages at interview/application. Toxic culture of gossiping and bi*ching between the staff.

Long hours. Drivers are pushed on. Little or no social life. Management tell you one thing and do another.
It's very much an us and them culture. The hardest part about the job is long hours.

Wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Management don’t know what they’re doing especially the production manger. You was treated terribly and people weren’t interested in improvements by you

I worked at forfarmers for 5 years as a HGV driver and in that time ive seen the place progressively get worse.
Poor management and nobody listens to what the drivers have to say. Basically your just a number. The place is slowly being ran into the ground. Losing life long customers day in day out.

Those above in “power” seem to be oblivious to it all. In my 15 years as a class1 driver i have never worked somewhere so unproffessional. Its like a soap opera every morning. Having said all of that there are some really good lads/drivers that work here and a select few that do care and see what im talking about. The pay is good for what you do and in this region of the country. All in all i would still go back if the time came and who knows maybe it will right itself before its too late.

Made redundant after 29 year mill closed. And told if you return to the site you will be trespassing. And the police will be called. But you will be ok because you have been here 29 years. So you will get a good pay out.

Inkoopadministratie: vaste kern van twee súperleuke, zeer gemotiveerde en keihard werkende mensen. Al járen wil men een team van vier personen vormen. Helaas beslist het management steeds na een jaar dat de nieuwe medewerkers niet voldoen, tot verrassing van de betreffende medewerker én van het vastd team.
Pros
Fijne collega's, ruim voldoende workflow
Cons

Worked for the company for 4 years and have to say it was a great company at start.
Then with in the last 2 and a half years it has been destroyed by the poor director and senior manager, With no one at the top taking any notice.

I had to leave in the end as it’s a them and us culture now with no respect to any member of staff outside the office including mill staff and drivers.


They pushed out a good planner and replaced with muppets.


Office have no respect for drivers and management decisions is a joke, they are all for health safety which is great when they do something about an issue, but have no respect for the staff that keep the company going.


Pay used to be good and they have a health plan after a year of employment but not worth the grief of working for this company.


Typical day, your work is planned out for you and your forced to maximise driving and working time so you can get the work done so you can go home at a reasonable time (happens rarely)



Avoid at all costs until they change management and attitudes towards staff.
Pros
Great group of drivers and mill staff
Cons
Everything

Locatie Delden zijn voor operators geen groeimogelijkheden. Niet in functie en in geld.
Het salaris is wel goed. Je werkt in een uitgebreide 3 ploegendienst.

Door de aangescherpte veiligheidseisen werk je in fabriek met een helm op.
Pros
Goed salaris
Cons
Geen groeimogelijkheden

Worked on bulk tipper. Fast paced but lads are a total laugh and helpful including management. Your not forced to rush. Only leaving to go on nights for family. Given the chance, i will happily come back to drive. Only downfall is some drivers kick off with a normal day and normally get the easy days
Pros
Helpful, friendly, wages
Cons
Planning suits some people

Went here as a trainer the job changed and I didnt like the new role your looked down upon from the directors and senior managers who were mostly sales people. The dutch took over and put the company to shame they treated you nicely but in the UK they continue to talk a load of BS and people are stealing a living taking the Michael. I would never ever recommend Forfarmers to anyone who wants a driving job. They even dump on the transport managers and want blood. When I was there a manager quit because he couldnt give any more blood
Pros
Good Drivers and office staff
Cons
treated like dirt on your shoes
