Decent company to work for, wage is pretty good for the work. Do what you need to do and the planners leave you alone. Decent bits of kit well maintained.

They don't care

Really poor management and planners have no idea what the job is like and what you do. They want to much from you with poor training given. Expected to wear your own cloths to work in no uniform given for some time after starting. Plan you no where near Facilities to wash so your often go through week with no showers. Expect you to contuine drivibg a lorry with issues like airleaks or bold tyres. Will leave you a letter terminating your contract with poor to no excuse. They won't work with you to get the work they want compleat. Seems to be a us and them Mentality with planners and drivers. Worst company I've worked. They will put you in a situation on a daily basis to lose your licence for their gain. They simply don't care about you at all. You won't get back till late on Friday and you will get harrisment from planners texting you on personal phone about the following week before you even have your time off. You will be expected to put your taco on break while being loaded and you can't go stop at a Service they will watch your every move on tracker. They won't reply to messages once they have left q letter in your pigon hole to Terminate your job. Rude and Inconsiderate management. Simply don't care about your well being at all.


Money can be good while cab hopping but will be horrible doing so for any amount of time.


No life and they will make you work till late Fridays because they are rubbish planners

Dont waste your time

You're just basically a glorified bin man most of the time. Planners have shocking attitudes and are on weird power trips. Management are poor. Wage structure is pathetic and impossible to work out, if you do query the wages you can never get hold of anyone to sort it. Trailers are old and ready for scrap yard but units are pretty good. All in all, Don't bother, its a complete waste of time


only one and thats pretty good tractor units


everything else

Well paid hard graft.

A superb company that looks after it's workforce but do not expect to have it easy. You WILL be driving 10 hour days and where possible, maxing out driving hours.

All good people

I never worked for them for very long day 12 weeks or so. I wasn't into it due to family issues so I left rather acrimoniously. My fault. They're ok to work for


Good pay

Great job, excellent pay and modern, up to date vehicles and equipment

Overall A W Jenkinson is an excellent employer and they value the efforts of their employees far more than any other company I have worked for! Very enjoyable and stress free job!


Good night out rate, fuel bonus and parking paid.


No real cons but weekends can be over quickly due to some late finishes.
