    I worked at Linfox (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will find a handful of decent and respectful people - not many

    Cons

    *Disgraceful management skill within Truck Driver job allocating section NDC & CDC

    *Extremely poor communication

    *Not very thorough training prior to letting you out on the job

    *Double standards - where some drivers are treated with respect and others are not. Particularly if you came from an agency

    *Spoken to in a rude and unprofessional manner, particularly by Mel & Matt at NDC

    *Some shift allocater's have very little empathy when it comes to understanding or appreciating the time required when unloading at Coles - especially when you have numerous trucks attempting to do so

    *Racism is prevalent, but ignored

    *Not a very happy environment between management and staff - only a chosen few are spoken to with any respect

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act with regards to improving communication between shift allocators and drivers.
    Improve the unprofessional and rude manner in which shift allocators speak to drivers
    Practice what you preach - "LIFT" (Loyalty - Integrity - Fairness - Trust) values are a complete joke if they are NOT put into practice, particularly Integrity, Fairness and Trust

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Linfox full-time

    Pros

    Nothing to speak of.

    Cons

    Expectations of 12+ hour days, only salaried for 7.6. The expectation that salaried staff need to make up shortfalls in operational staffing. A culture of incompetence. KPIs not based in reality; completely un- achievable.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be able to accept the fact that people cannot control the weather. State level management and client services would do well to have a basic understanding of geography; they could also learn a thing or two about space and time considerations. Also should realise an employee cannot physically move an entire city to cut their overtime...

    Pros

    Excellent people in the trenches. Alot of staff pulling hard on the rope.

    Cons

    Company has alot to say about values - loyalty, integrity and trust. Constant emails alerting to the dismissal of staff bring morale down and create an atmosphere of fear. Not great. Not recommended.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values even when it hurts.

    Pros

    People and culture. Linfox attracts strong people wanting to do a great job and work in an iconic business with a strong future and strategy
