OK to work for but not home every Friday. And they always keep u out to the sat and tell u on a Friday afternoon that ur not getting home. And other drivers all always finished at 15.00 on a Friday and ur out until 19.00.

Really enjoyed working here. Tramping Monday to Friday. If you have a young family do not do it. Try for a day shift job. Overall excellent can’t fault them for anything.

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.


Good money


Long hours, time away from home

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


New lorry


Poor managers and traffic Clarks

Good company

If you want to make money you need to be maximum weight and do maximum hrs. Wages should be better for the job you are doing. You get 20 percent of what the lorry makes but they don't tell you how much each job is where they should be. You could be waiting an hour to get loaded and an hour to get tipped or longer that's 10 hrs a week you don't get payed for. Some planners don't have a clue how to run the lorries. Asked to break the law when it suits ie weight. Could be a much better company to work for if management got there finger out.


Own lorry and trailer so not changing all the time.

Not the best place I've worked

I found work/life balance is non existence, The place is very understaffed and no flexibility for working environment. Health and Safety is atrocious. I was never given any induction, health and safety or any PPE.

good place to work

I enjoyed my time working here. The job was clear and well planned knew exactly what needed to be done in any one day as well as the timescales the job needed to be completed in.

worst place ive ever worked

Management are bullies,planners are all broken down drivers who talk to you like your a piece of dirt.The whole place is rotten to the core.If you want to be treat like a second class citizen,not allowed to query anything,lose your identity,be ran into the tarmac for £7.50 an hour straight through then this is the place to go




maximum hours for NMW.Treat like an idiot by all management
