Anyone worked for Orridge (stock taking company)Watch
You make your own way to customer sites and there is usually at least a couple per week that will be close by. At my company, the first 70 miles round trip is not covered as expenses, and the mileage rate after that is diabolical. Parking is not paid for, so you have to find free parking usually quite a distance from the customer site. This means you have to walk back to your car late at night/early in the morning, often in rough areas or pay for parking for the duration of your shift, which is 1-2 hours wages gone.
The work is boring, repetitive, unvaried but it is easy, although it can be quite fidgety. Shifts are usually between 6-10 hours and at terrible hours.
It is an odd job to do, but it is extremely flexible and you can make a decent supplementary income from it.
No companies (or very few) will do stock taking over Christmas, so you'll probably get no work over November and December and maybe January. You have to be very fast and very accurate, so it's not the kind of work that everyone will be good at - you don't want to be dropping things or miscounting or missing stuff completely. It's also early morning work - in my last job, the stock takes started at 6, so you'd need to be at the shop for about 10 to and it can be a longish drive away from where you live.
As title, anyone heard about someone or worked for Orridge, It is a zero hour contract but do you get a decent level of hours per week in or is it just a waste of time? thanks
aye I used to work for them for 6 years was a counter then worked up to be supervisor and ran stocktakes as for a counter to start with u would get 3 to 4 shifts a week and they assess you on your ability and how u pick it all up if proven good you will get more work it is ok if you are at college and need extra cash but bear in mind they slow down around easter and dec time ites not for everyone but if you have speed and good at maths then go for it easy job straight forward and if you like it u can make a carear out of it for life.
I was invited on an interview at Ford Social & Sports Club, at 9:30AM on 26th January 2015 for the role of Casual Stocktaker. Everything went quite well. At that time I was more than 100% sure to get this job but so far I haven't heard anything from them. I am just wondering whether anyone else also waiting for their call? Thanks
hi if you haven't heard from them give them a call at Aldridge office they should put you in touch with the recruitment officer or tell you if you were successful sometimes if you haven't heard from them for a while say a month then probably you were unsucessfull depends how you did in the test as well and you provided all copies of everything I used to work for them for 6 years so I know how they work
Hi, Could anyone please tell me how to claim travel expenses in Orridge? I searched Orridge portal but couldnt found any public transport expenses form. These is only personal car expenses form available which isnt for someone who used public transport. Thanks
I think if I am correct you send in yr receipts from the bus or train or taxi there should be a form in there for expenses if not ring them up as a general enquiry.
