    Avantages

    I worked for PMP in the Amazon Gourock warehouse throughout lockdown.

    I was quite nervous before starting due to reading a fair amount of negative press online about the way workers were treated. I'd read stories of people peeing in bottles because they couldn't go to the toilet and others of being sacked for being too slow.

    I appreciate things were a bit different because of the pandemic however it was nothing like the negative reviews I'd read. There had been some things put in place to help workers such as longer breaks and increased wage per hour.

    PMP themselves were fine. They got me signed up and working quickly. Once you're in the door you don't really deal with them again. There was a young guy working for them who was a total sex pest. So I imagine if you were a girl worker then you got quite a lot of PMP attention. They paid on time and it was all very efficient.

    The work itself was monotonous. I was a picker and spend my hours walking around piling stuff onto my cart and then dropping it off. It kept me busy and I had no problem keeping up with the numbers you were required to hit. I think some negative reviews will come from people expecting to be perhaps be rewarded or thanked for working hard. This does not happen. I worked my backside off and had very high numbers but the only consolation was that the lady that comes round to tell you off, didn't come to have a "chat" with me.

    Amazon provided masks and took Covid seriously. At first they were using such equipment to check peoples temperatures. On one occasion the temp reading was me suggested I was stone cold dead. It was comical and the guy just waved me in. Another time I set off the alarm as I'd been sitting in direct sunshine for 5 minutes. Again they waved me in.

    There was a few times when people spoke to me in a manner that was just not acceptable. I let them know this and did receive apologies. There was a lack of clear communication for instance as I was on a specific shift pattern I would miss notifications that others received and doors to use and ways to enter and exit. If I did it wrong I got shouted at and this is when I challenged them.

    Amazon and PMP got me through the pandemic and I'm grateful for that. I'd work for them again for sure.

    At the end of my time with them I'd just finished my 4 day bock to return home to a family member showing Covid symptoms. I let PMP know this and they told me to get tested and come straight back to work. This bothered me as the NHS had literally just told me not to leave the house. There was a mishmash of information and I stuck to what the current government guidance was. I feel PMP messed up here but such is life.

    One other negative about PMP is that they sign you up to their pension scheme. Now this was introduced to protect people etc but my issue with it was that you could not easily remove yourself from the scheme. I read the agreement carefully and it supplied an email address. It stated email this address to remove yourself and when I did, they replied saying it's not us who deal with it and proceeded to say they couldn't help. So What I am saying is that some of their blurbs in the contract were incorrect.

    I you're considering working for them I'd say why not! PMP get you signed up quickly and pay on time. Amazon full time staff are friendly and helpful enough. I was met with some aggression at points however I think this was down to the current situation. People were more stressed as isles could not be shared etc and packers were annoyed and pickers etc.

    Packing looks like a truly awful job.

    Picking is fine and is good exercise.

    Stowing was very easy. 50% of the time there was no work and they'd stand around in groups for hours.

    The ideal would be to mix up shifts with a bit of each job. That would help retain staff I would suspect.
