Class 1 LGV Driver in Penrith
on 4 April 2022
Overal it is good place to work. New wagons and most of tbe trailers. Most days you decide what time you start. Some days are long shifts up to 13-14 hours. Sometimes they try to compensate with less hours next day. Downside is that there is salary and working 60h/week gives you less than 10p/h which is not great these days.

Excellent wages - have to work for it.
AW Jenkinson is a good place to work as a driver. The wages are on par but you will struggle to work them out as you are paid a basic rate then 20% of what your truck makes.Equipment is good and they have no problems getting trailers in and sorting the problem immediately. Work is ok if you are prepared to graft, can be a bit dirty/smelly at times. Management in some offices needs looked at, but majority of planners are spot on.

Soap opera on wheels
Work every hour they can get out you.48 hours wtd means nothingI found it to be like being back at school the way the managers spoke to you.The transport clerks were all the drivers who crawled there way into the office.They didn't have a clue

Dirty work for little money
Planners want you to run your hours out 15 hrs three times a week every week. Money sounds good (£700 take home) however for the hours you'll do this equates to £8.33 an hour.Every place you'll go is different so you're never sure about the procedure for the sites , virtually impossible to stay clean and with the workload you don't have time for a shower unless you can get to a Jenkinson site. In short jobs like these are the reason for driver shortages.
