A mother Saturday and another delivery from Ocado. As ever, lovely driver and prompt. And, as ever, several crushed or rotting items, yet another tedious call to customer services, and more time wasted. A notably worse service now that they are linked to M&S - less choice, rising prices and their ‘out of stock’ items seem to be growing by the week. Time to move on, I think.

Delivering at 11pm on a Sunday night is not acceptable, nor is it quiet!! You have to draw the line somewhere!!!

The ocado contact Centre in Sunderland is a scam I was hired over the Christmas period just to cover the phone I was not trained I was used as a donkey over the Christmas period to cover the phones during the lockdown I got felt so intimidated by floor walkers who screamed at me when asked for help I had one floor Walker tell me she takes drugs and I had a manager shout my medical records across the floor they still have my p45 I have went through investigation to investigation for them to say that I’m was trained on web chat which I have never seen I was teaching fetch, dobbies and zoom calls with no training basically the contact centre in Sunderland ocado is a fraud and I’d be careful with you private details because I had a drug dealer off me drugs but I’m the liar and to be made out these people where my friends I was abused so much the state of my mental health from the phone calls I was forced to take unfortunate I don’t have £250 and hour to pay for court fees right no so I’m going public making as noticeable as I can if I was throwing into the deep end with all of your private details and knowing one takes drugs and another offered me drugs I’m pretty sure there is many more who was hired over the Christmas period was fired or dismissal unfairly and was never trained ! I will make my self noticeably one way or another ocado is disgusting the way they have treat me and to be made out these people where my friends and they trained me on things I never even seen before is laughable change why they have fired me 6 times also give me no warning I was pulled into a room with two guys telling me I no longer work there is disgusting! I will take you to your one way or another ! And this is the copied response I got.... Further to your initial email dated 05 April 2021 and subsequent emails dated 18 April 2021, 30 April 2021 and 02 May 2021. We have been making enquiries into the situation you say you felt you were in, by speaking with the named individuals in confidence and will summarise our response to the comments you have made to date in this letter. We apologise that you believe this has taken so long however, to complete a full investigation this involves a significant amount of time as the number of people you made reference to needed to be spoken with. We hope you will accept this as our attempt to answer your concerns. When you started with Ocado, you were in a two week induction programme whereby you were trained on webchat and email. In your email you refer to the length of service of the trainer; the time in which your colleagues have been employed by Ocado is irrelevant to their ability to train. You mention that you believe that the room you were in did not meet COVID safety standards, as a Company we have a duty of care to all employees as such we worked closely with Public Health England (PHE) who supported us in making sure the necessary measures were in place. These measures were ever changing however, exceeded all recommendations by PHE regarding social distancing at the time of your training. If you felt uncomfortable with this you could have mentioned this to management and we would have explained what we were doing to make the office COVID safe. You refer to an email which you say you sent in confidence to a manager regarding needing additional support. The Team Manager in question made a Quality Coach who you had previously worked alongside aware that you felt you would benefit from some additional support. The Quality Coach sat with you to go through what you felt was a difficult ticket, she explained the required process for dealing with such a situation. Following this intervention and additional support from the coach you appeared. Please share as much as you can until they see this!!!!! But yet I was moved from desk to desk to desk every day I was never on the same desk ! I have witnesses so I’m ready for the battle !!!! I will not let this go my life is way more important and that place has damaged me !

I booked some sandwich platters 4 weeks in advance of needing them for my fathers memorial service.Ocado gave me less than 48 hours notice that would not be delivering them. I received a 10 pound voucher which under the circumstances was of no value or use to me. Ocado told me it was national supply issue and there was nothing they could do. Extremely let down by a company that should have done more to help me, they basically didn't care as I have absolutely no impact on their business and income.

I ordered a whole shopping list of food which was obviously for a party. Put the order in three weeks prior to delivery so plenty of time to get the correct items in stock. The order arrived minus 3 sandwich platters. That was all of the sandwich platters that I had ordered! What’s the point of offering food for entertaining if you send out an order with something as basic as sandwich platters missing. I rang Ocado to complain was told a manager would ring the following day that was followed a couple of hours later up by an email saying that a manager would ring me back within 24 hours. More than 24 hours have passed and I’m still waiting. Terrible customer service.

My first order as I was offered free delivery. I read reviews and was concerned especially as paypal authorised £6 more than my bill showed( this was not VAT). This unsettled me. After my order was delivered paypal was debited for the correct amount. My order was complete,no substitutes and undamaged but there was nothing time critical or difficult. I probably wont use them again as the food was overpriced and I didnt like the way they preauthorised what appeared to be a random amount of money from paypal. Feel safer with Tescos and Waitrose

10+ years I've spent over £200 a week with Ocado & it means nothing to them. They go to ZERO lengths to help their customers. Their customer service, this morning from Irene, was the usual poor, regurgitation of platitudes about how she apparently 'appreciates' how I feel, which just by the intonation of her voice, was super clear, that she did not. Officious, bossy, unhelpful managers just back up their repetitive so called 'customer service' person. What is sooooo clear, is that do they give a damn about loyalty, or the £12.5K, that until today I used to spend every year, by talking down to me like a naughty child. No records taken, no offers of how to make it right, JUST "NO, I APPRECIATE HOW YOU FEEL." Like most customer service in this country, its just an easy job for those who care not one bit & for whom blowing actual paying customers off is a pastime. I'm glad Ocado is doing well enough to throw me away. Since they lost Waitrose, I've needed a reason to abandon ship - thanks useless phone people!

Slowly but surely range on offer getting worse and more expensive

Terrible service. Informed 15 minutes before delivery that the sandwich platter was missing from my order which ruined my plans for the day. Then received an apology by email that was full of spelling mistakes

Been using Ocado for very many years, I loved it, great choice and good customer service. I was happy to pay for the SmartPass which was initially 3.99, went to 5.99 - I sent a cancellation request, they contacted me and they told me they'd put me back on the 3.99 offer. Then it went back to 5.99 again after some time, it was still with Waitrose and the quality/price was amazing so I paid the 5.99 for a while. Then they joined M&S, the food choice is very poor, quality is not that great, a ton of offers disappeared and most of my regulars, no suitable alternatives in the M&S range - I ended up sourcing my regular products elsewhere. The prices on some of my old items (which are still present) have almost doubled, so gradually I've been moving to other services. I still kept the SmartPass 'just in case', until they bumped the price up to 8.99 - I decided to cancel. No follow up call to retain my custom, but that's ok. I tried to place one order and really, even if I try to be flexible about my choices of shopping, I struggle to find everything I need there. Shame, Ocado was awesome, the M&S partnership has killed it.

Very few missing items or substitutions, huge choice of brands for each type of product.

Unfortunately cannot give 0 stars, otherwise I would. My whole family uses the Ocado service as loyal and regular customers. I made an account with them and booked a bunch of slots with the intention of ordering on all of those days and editing what I wanted day by day. Ocado then suspected card fraud due to the multiple orders, which is understandable. They locked my account and cancelled my orders. I got in touch, which takes way more than 24 hours to receive a reply btw, and ended up sending a copy of my drivers licence to them like they asked so that they know the orders are legit. I figured after this confirmation it would all be fine, my account would be unsuspended and I could carry on ordering. But noooo. They didn’t get back to me for a week even after I kept contacting for updates, very poor. I then opted to do a live chat once I realised I could. LIAM R., if that's even his real name, is incompetent and rude. He said they couldn’t do anything about it and that I would have to “shop somewhere else", then proceeded to end the chat on me without properly answering my questions and concerns. Appalling customer service. It should not matter what a customer wants to buy, when, how often or how much. As long as we are buying from you and spending money on your goods and services. At the end of the day, the customers keep you in business, and you should be glad we want to purchase from you. Ridiculous.

Cancelled a delivery during the time of the delivery slot because the driver couldn't find the major hotel in Birmingham City Centre. Driver claimed no access, however Amazon, Yodel and ParcelForce all managed deliveries today. Very little effort made to resolve issue, which left me in great difficulty due to mandatory isolation.

I raised a concern with Ocado customer service regarding a very disturbing experience I had with one of their drivers. They replied initially saying they would have the driver's manager "investigate". I have asked for a follow up and to date have had no response in over a week. As a woman, I need to feel confident that the driver coming to my door is someone who can be trusted. I no longer feel safe shopping with Ocado, as they have failed to address my concerns

Driver was on time and delivered the bags out of my door, thank you. But the oranges I got were all stale, same with the apples! I was very disappointed

The other wonderful Ocado have just delivered my order. Just fantastic to order food online, including my friend’s items as well. No more drag at Tesco. Love the people who deliver - always pleasant & sociable people. I can’t ever see me doing a big shop in a supermarket again, maybe a few odds, but no big shop there again. Food fresh & well within date & delivered to the door - can’t better that - thank you Ocado x

An Ocado driver came and dropped all the bags with bread and milk in dirt and mud on the verge of a busy public road leaving me in shock. I was asking him to stop, but he’s just replied that he was instructed to do that by Ocado. I called Ocado customer services, informed them about the driver’s behaviour and refused to accept the order dumped in the mud, but Ocado completely ignored my words and charged me in full for this delivery. I made a video of this delivery and will put it in internet.

Picard Duck Confit with potatoes This was so very disappointing. Totally lacking in any form of flavour, and under seasoned. I bought this to save the bother of making something for my dinner ....never again ! There were lots of potatoes, very little sauce and the poor little duck must have hardly learned to walk, the leg was minuscule.

I am very surprised by customers comments, Ocado has been a life saver during the lockdown for my family, I have never shopped online for groceries but since I started shopping with Ocado it has changed my mind, I used to go to M&S for some shopping then I have to go to Tesco or Waitrose or other supermarkets for other shopping, now I can get everything under one roof, it saves me hours of my time, the delivery drivers are always on time even early, they always arrive with a smile and are very helpful, customer service are very professional and has always emailed me back, they are under a lot of pressure at this time, trying to keep everyone happy is not easy, The food is exceptional and what a choice, I read customers reviews to help you buy products that other customers buy I don't have a smart pass but I always get a delivery slot, slots are there but you have to keep trying and you will get one
