Given very little time to learn and adapt and are expected to keep up with full time employees and you are not given much of a break the shift time is not work jobsites advertise but that may just be the recruiters fault

Stay away! Horrendous

Transport office (if you can call it that) really have no idea what they’re doing and have very poor knowledge of driving hours and WTD, basically young lads chucked into an office from a warehouse environment with little training just to fill a void. I have 20 years of HGV driving experience and this is by far the worst employer I have ever worked for. Overtime is paid incorrectly if paid at all, vehicles are not well maintained and the cabs are always filthy and unhygienic. My advice would be to stay well clear.

Pros

Was local to where I live

Cons

Management, poor vehicle cleanliness and incorrect wages every pay day

Delivery driver

I would not recommend any to use this company as it all about them. Please look somewhere else to work you get treated like parcel. Most drivers are self employed

Don't care as long as you slug your guts out

Stupid managers , no planning .always waiting for delivery for sorting depots. Managers always pushing you to deliver oversize items that belong on lorries. Honestly don't touch with a barge pole.

Tip; Get your own round and stick.

I spent 4 years with my own round and I loved it. I loved the people and they loved me. I looked after them and they looked after me. If you are considering delivering for Hermes/Evri I strongly recommend you get a single round and stick to it. Do not offer to help others as you will be taken advantage of. The company will endeavour to pay you as little as possible in any way they can. For example if you deliver a 20kg “heavy package” they will very often process the parcel as a 20g “packet“. If you’re willing to fight for what you’re owed then this job is wonderful as you have your very own community of customers who you will connect with and become good friends with.

Overworked and toxic environment

They expect so much from you. Work weekends, 7 days. Can't have a day off as they call you and hound you. Start at 7 or 8 am and expected to work until 8pm for no extra. Bullied by management. Not worth your mental health.
