Brambles Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Brambles Limited is an Australian company that specialises in the pooling of unit-load equipment, pallets, crates and containers. It is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. Brambles traces its history to 1875, when Walter Bramble established a butchery business in Newcastle, the operations of which he gradually expanded into transport and logistics. Brambles was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in 1954, as W E Bramble & Sons Limited and entered the pallet pooling business in 1958 through the purchase of the Commonwealth Handling Equipment Pool (CHEP), from the Australian Government. This same year the company changed its name to Brambles Industries Limited and moved its head office from Newcastle to Sydney.

A former employee of Brambless wrote in a review "Brambless managers are only interested in themselves. To the extent that direct falsification of data, to make oneself look better. No longer interested in transparency & honest work ethics and good values!"

Chef (Former Employee) says

"I worked for brambles for 3 month's in heaston station and it was the worst experience I've had seen I began my career in kitchens staff are under payed and work long shifts there organisation is the worst I've seen there's no training provided at all your wages are deducted for ur lunch breaks and get charged weekly for wearing company clothing even if you don't were them as I worked as a chef an had my own chef clothes and was still deducted from my wages weekly Cons: Nothing"

Med Tech / Caregiver/ DSP (Current Employee) says

"Very negative Company. No positive response and very little consideration for patients and employees. No advancement available unless related to upper management. Poor work conditions with PPE available to workers or adequate food for residents."

Builder (Former Employee) says

"Management is horrible. They are two faced and the only concern is getting pallets done every day. You can not take any days off without getting wrote up."

DSP (Direct Support Professional) says

"They didn’t care about there employees just money . They way things are ran their are not fair nor are they legal in some ways . There house managers all have favorites and it’s usually of relations to them . They hide and lie to other employees to cover there family ."

Manager (Former Employee) says

"I have to agree that the owners only care about their face lifts and dental implants. They are like The Beverly Hillbillies got rich. They are rude and I wish they would be investigated for financial fraud, employee abuse, as well as extreme prejudices. I guess the state doesn’t close this down because theirs no place else to house these poor ID clients! Your basically a house servant. The owners want the houses to be absolutely spotless rather than giving top quality care! They will take a glove and use it to see if you’ve dusted...the entire work environment is bizarre. The owners are unstable emotionally which affects the climate of the facility Cons: Too many to list"

Lead DSP (Former Employee) says

"I didn't like it at all. it was really unprofessional and i want ever go back there to work. The hardest part of the job was trying to get along with management."

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says

"Owners are CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!! they absolutely have no control over their emotions and take it out on their employees..too busy getting facelifts and porcelain veneers to see that the employees bust their butts to keep them happy and it's so unappreciated...not a good place to work! The residents are oh so sweet and I have to give credit where it's due their residents are their top priority and are well cared for but their leadership qualities need some work! No would not recommend! Cons: Too many to list!"

DSP (Former Employee) says

"Not very stable leadership. Odd working culture! This is a “mom pop” owned busines. Many times the emotional instability of the personal lives bleeds into the way they treat the staff. There’s no sympathy and it’s supposed to be a Christian organization. I think not!"

Lead Cook (Former Employee) says

"The company cut a lot of corners on health code and safety. I didn't want to be involve with a company like this.The working conditions was poor and unsafe."

DSP (Direct Support Professional) says

"Don't waste your time there. Go to a hospital or Nursing Home. Everyone is suspicious of each other. The owners should be called in on by EOC. The state needs to make more frequent check up visits."

Direct support provider (Former Employee) says

"The job duties required you to take care of individuals which was in the job description, but having to deep clean the house and manage your job duties was a bit too much. Cons: management, owners and no pay raises"

DSP (Direct Support Professional) says

"The owners are very rude, especially the wife. The managers seem clueless. HR is definitely clueless. The office staff are rude also. The communication is terrible. They force feed you all this info then feed you to the wolves. If you absolutely can't find a job anywhere else by all means go here, but I wouldn't recommend it. They do have some great staff that really care, but unfortunately the bad seeds stick out more. Cons: Rude Owners and office staff. Poor management, poor communication. Pay"

RPA / event planner administrator (Current Employee) says

"A typical day at work for me consists of me coming in at 5:00am , checking the houses to ensure the clients have all of their personal needs, food if properly stocked in the houses, managing request forms, checking houses to ensure they are clean, clients are properly dressed to go out into the community, staff is following all policy and procedures correctly. I typically then run my errands for the houses and clients doing personal shopping, food purchasing etc. I am also the personal assistant of the CEO of the company so I convers ate with her back and forth through out the day and ensure all of her things she wants me to handle are being done correctly. The hardest part of my day / job would be multitasking and time management. One of the biggest problems I face here at the Brambles is that it seems as if none of the managers are on the same page and it gets very confusing and irrigating. The most enjoyable part of my job would be helping people / the clients. I am a very outgoing person and love to help people and meet new people and the challenges along the way no matter what the case may be. I am generally a hard worker and will not leave the job until my job duties are completed to my standards. Cons: Pay, Management team very rude owners (CEOS) towards the management team / staff"

Catering Assistant (Former Employee) says

"I enjoyed my experience to work in Brambles, it was my first job in Dublin Ireland which gave me the opportunity to deal with nice customers and improve my English."

Field Representative (Current Employee) says

"This was a great company at one time. I am disappointed with upper Management. Field based reps have to clean up the mess that director’s make. I hope the company revisits whom is making poor Business decisions for personal gain. Upper Management only worries about short lived wins and bonuses. This mentality has crippled almost all of my customer relationships in the field. Avoid working here until they get their priorities back in order. Cons: Corporate management direction."

Confidential (Former Employee) says

"Popularity contest, you get in with the right click then you are paid well and move up quick. Management relies on you to work in a leadership role with no additional pay or title. Structure is behind the times. How long can you continue to address low hanging fruit. For a successful company it still has lots of room for improvement."

DSP (Former Employee) says

"Being that this company services special needs I will not supply any information to protect their clients."

Sr. Dir. of IT, Supply Chain Management (Global) says

"Due to global nature of the business and leadership structure, matrix organization created slow down on progress of many meaningful strategic initiatives. Cons: your objectives may not be fully considered for who you are, what you achived vs. perception of you in the eyes of leadership."

DSP (Former Employee) says

"A typical day at work included a review of data, MAR, and ISP notes so that I knew of the expected care to be provided per individual. They would recieve support with adl care, food preperation, cleaning, and medication, to include insulin and vital monitoring.After all individuals were completed I would do my data notes for Medicaid and then it was required to do thorough cleaning of entire house. This includes laundry, kitchen, bathrooms and dusting. I learned alot about caring for disabled individuals, including patience and some behavioral therapy tactics. My co workers were not very great, it was a very soap opera, gossip, and drama atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was when a resident passed away. Other than that it was completing all duties in one shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was the clients and the idea that I was helping them. I also worked two 19hr shifts and it was nice to have the remainder of the week off to be with my children. Cons: co-workers"

David Pound says

"My recent experience is exactly the same as Iain Hardiker. I posted the incorrect gloves back on 25 May and have been told today that there is a delay due to the high number of returns!!! Maybe they need to look at their despatch processes."

iain hardiker says

"Somewhat disappointed as my order reference PO1098645 was despatched incorrectly and i subsequently emailed you on the 18th of May about the error in goods received, but to date i haven't even had a reply to say i will be dealt with in due course. I understand companies have staffing issues currently, but please let me know asap as i feel very forgotten about right now."

Bespoke Contract Services Ltd says

"i place an order on the 7th of April for my company. we are a NHS partner and was told items were in stock. I have called today 16th April and told they don't have any stock until the end of may. I don't understand why they are selling items they don't have ?"

Concerned person says

"I ordered several boxes of gloves from this company couple of months ago. I received an email after a few weeks stating the items were in back order as they had none in stock. To my surprise my gloves that they said were out of stock were for sale on the site at 4 times the original price I paid. I finally got a refund this afternoon as they STILL hadn't dispatched my items. This company is clearly using the covid-19 virus to profiteer by selling the boxes I ordered for £4 for £16. Shameful."
