Good job but depends on the planner

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good job and pays well and new trucks. Can be a bully culture depending on what planner you have. No work life balance unless you are one of the favourites who always got back first

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.

Good company to work for.

Probably the best driving job I have had, if your willing to put in a shift and adhere to health and safety then you will be left alone to get on with the job. Good pay compared to most.


Good salary, Meal allowance, Night shfft bonus, Night out money, Double time bank holiday working, Cpc modules.


Can be long hours. Waiting time on some sites can be long.

HGV Class 1 walking floors

Working from Penrith depot four nights out per week, early starts, sometimes late finishes, can be dirty work delivering forest products, waste amongst other things. Good quality vehicles, Volvos and Scania, good quality trailers, well maintained, good salary, overnight parking paid. Left up to you to do the jobs. Easy work after the first few months.


Good vehicles, trailers and wages.


Bit too far to travel.

Park where you like overnight

Not a bad company to work for

Mon-fri barely any 6th day run ins but you work your hours! All the kit is under 3yrs old and your parking is paid! Sometimes the workload is heavy and you have a late finish on a Friday

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.
