Fun because u get out on different stuff to do so you won’t get bored

Decent job but they mess up your hours and days of working for example they say you can 8 hours then make you do 11 hours. you can’t buy food there or anything so you need to make sure you are prepared.

Pros

Two breaks

Cons

11 hours

good place to work

it was the same things day in day out with a me loading a full trailer and unloading vans scanning the parcels to the right areas i would get in in each morning to set up all scanners for the team and get in early to get the team ready for the day

Pros

good team

Cons

none

Just a number!

When I first started I quite enjoyed the role. However due to poor management that enjoyment was soon stripped away. It became apparent that drivers were treated with utter contempt and that we were all utterly disposable. This included people that had been there a number of yrs. Avoid like the plague!!

Pros

Non

Cons

Treated like dirt. Poor management.

Nicht zu empfehlen

Fehler gerne wiederholt. Weiterbildung alibimässig im Giesskannenprinzip, fehlender Wille zum Selberdenken und Eigenverantwortung übernehmen wird toleriert. Wer etwas kann darf für die anderen mitarbeiten. Durch vorspielen familiärer Struktur, sollen Mitarbeiter sich einseitig verpflichtet fühlen, mehr zu tun, als es ihr Job wäre.

Cons

Keine Entwicklungsmöglichkeit, Einstellungskriterien fragwürdig

The WORST company ever

Please, never work for these people, stressful atmosphere, you are pushed to do jobs at your own risk. Management especially at Burslem depot awful. Rather die than work for them again. Never, never, never. And as a bonus, still owe me my holiday pay 6 months after I finished contract with them. wow

Pros

non

Cons

using own car, own clothes, pay for petrol, non-professional management

Hermes Iłowa - OBÓZ PRACY Auschwitz

Myślałam, że czasy Auschwitz już minęły ale niestety... Nikomu nie polecam. Na hali strasznie zimno - około 0 stopni. Pani szkoląca - po 2 tygodniach WIE WSZYSTKO, zastrasza, bardzo niemiła i niesprawiedliwa, jej celem nie jest przeszkolenie pracowników a raczej kopanie leżącego i widać, że ją to rajcuje. Brak możliwości wypicia ciepłej herbaty - przy takich warunkach (zimnica) uważam, że powinna być ogólnie dostępna. Pracodawca myśli, że ludzie chorzy będą przychodzić do pracy? Kolejny HIT - zakaz zabierania ze sobą telefonu. Przez 8h pracownicy odcięci od świata - nie chodzi tu o to aby przeglądać FB czy inne strony ale w życiu są różne sytuacje - raczej każdy z nas chciałby wiedzieć kiedy ktoś z jego rodziny ulegnie jakiemuś wypadkowi, znajdzie się w szpitalu - to tylko przykład, zdarzyć może się wszystko. Ogólnie świat się zmienia i idzie do przodu - niestety praca w tej firmie sprowadzi Cię do epoki średniowiecza! Odradzam podejmować tam pracę - chyba, że lubisz cierpieć. I co najważniejsze wypłata to najniższa krajowa + możliwość 15% premii (której oczywiście Ci nie przyznają). Jeżeli ktoś jest dojezdny (większość) raczej nie starczy mu na przeżycie.

Very hard work for minimum wage

The hardest job you'll ever do. I came crawling out of the warehouse most days. Freezing cold and dark in the back of a loose filled lorry. Supervisors have targets to meet and some shout at people to meet these, some slope of smoking while at the same time frown at you for going to the toilet, and they demand you're back bang on time after tea break, even though it can be a 10 minute round trip from the far end of the warehouse. A couple of supervisors were ok. Some have there favourites. Some are complete helmets. Security Looks like a criminal and treats everyone as pure scum. Some of the longer term staff there are nice and friendly and helpful. If i was deaperate for work I'd go back as a last resort. Some characters there. Its disappointing that the staff are unvalued there. It could be so much better but this all comes from greed at the top. Water machines were always broken when i was there. At times it can be total chaos as so many targets have to be made.

Avoid

The worst company that i ever seen Bad management, they don't care about workers they just decide who stays at work and who goes home even if you are a good worker.

Drivers suffer for poor management

Easy to get the job and decent infill while looking for another. The company take a lot of shortcuts and don't bother with training or points of contact. Be prepared to work things out for yourself .You end up being the middle man for complaints you have no control over.Pay can be decent if you get a good round and know how to work the round in your favour on pay review.Targets are impossible when covering a round you don't know.

Pros

Flexible, no qualifications needed, regular customers make your day

Cons

Poor management and work environment

Terrible

Job claims you are self employed but you have to start when they want you to start and do what they tell you, you spend most of your wages on fuel and maintaining for your vehicle and acctualy end up worse of. They will give you the worse routes to cover with no help. Absolute con of a job avoid at all costs

Pros

Non

Cons

Buy your own fuel

Just a number

You will be worked like a dog, or ignored. Your just a number to replace at the drop of a hat. Flexible as long as it suits their needs. Part time works out to be full time as never start on time. Some can be working into late night.

Pros

None

Cons

No negotiations. Their way or the highway.

5 stars

What is the best part of working at the company?Awesome managers and CEO. Even when the job got tough, the company owner and managers always made you feel welcome and appreciated.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The most stressful thing is the delivery routes given by Amazon, which could be poorly planned by Amazon's logistics.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Welcoming and family-like. You always feel appreciated and seen.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Clock-in, stand up meeting with managers, load delivery vehicles at warehouse loading bay, drive to first stop and commence route, lunch break for 30 minutes when I choose, 2 15-minute breaks on the clock (when I choose), return to warehouse when route is done, and park vehicle, clockout

Terrible place to work

Worst pl ever to work pay is ridiculous less than 50p for some parcels.Have to load in rain and snow,no help from management and your not entirely self employed as you have to set eta's which means you are having to let people know when you are coming, but when I went to school self employed meant you can do what you want when you want,it used to be 2hour ETA but now it is 1 and if you don't deliver in that time you lose any bonus you might get,if you have over 180 parcels a day you lose track of the time slot

Pros

None

Cons

Not enough pay
Was this review helpful?

It was stressful.

It was very difficult to find places, postcodes never took you to the right place. Pay was fine if you could get all the parcels delivered. Started at 10 and finished at 10 at night.

Bad company

Working for this company was a bad idea I would strongly recommend staying away from them. No organisation more manager/ supervisor than actual worker. no one knows what is happening.left hand don't communicate with right hand. Conflicting instructions with senior personnel. Best avoided if possible.

Young mans job

Flexible job you can working when you want within a 10 hour daily window but my knees became sore after a couple of years. Not worth risking my health for the pay offered

Pros

Flexibility

Physically pressuring
