Productive place for work.

Featured review

Abbey Logistics Group selected this as a representative review
Happy people around workplaces. No days are the same. Different journeys every day. Work load is well balanced. Overtime availability is good and for everyone who is interested.

Pros

Long hours

Cons

Good brake time

Wow

Poor planning max hours worked for no respect. And if the job goes wrong when their equipment breaks down its always the drivers fault. This job is not for anybody but they will take anybody on to work

Rubbish tanks, pay deducted all the time, penny pinchers.

Wouldn't bother going there if you want to earn good money this company likes to take hours off you even though you've worked it then say your engine didn't start till such and such time so we ain't paying you, also if ya want tramping money, don't expect getting it yoy now have to spend your measly 26.20 and prove it with a receipt, joke of company

Pros

None

Cons

Penny pinchers

Easy job made hard work

The management of this company have got there heads so far up there own …. they have lost touch with reality and to what is going on around them, the amount of money that is waisted is truly eye watering.There is Three different pay structures within the company, new drivers can be on a lot less than other drivers doing the exact same job, drivers plan the trucks not the planners, it’s sugar not nuclear or radioactive waste just plain old sugar…..

Pros

Non

Cons

Lots

Terrible place

The planners don't have a clue. To be fair it's not there thought the company's training is a joke. Even the driver training is a joke if you can call it training. Drivers would drop tanks with oil leaking everywhere, you would tell planners or management and they wouldn't care about it. A toxic place to work. I was there nearly 5 years and it went drastically down hill. During COVID they didn't care about your health they would be sending the truck out during the night with agency and anyone else they could find to drive for them and if you asked for cleaning stuff you got told no.

Depends what your after

It’s a good job and very easy, but some planners try and get you to work a 15 hour day everyday, that’s if you could.But they are good if you don’t make it but keep them informed all the time.

Pros

Nothing really

Cons

Long hours

Easiest job in the world

Like anywhere this job has its cons tanks are a bit outdated, and the 3 day pay week if on 4 on 4 off, and communication could be better, but you won't find an easier job fot this kind of money.

Pros

No mither just left to do your job

Cons

3 day pay weeks when your week is split by a sunday

Lack of training

Worked accts Golborne office. Left job, expected to run without proper training. Original training was with an apprentice who was doing AAT but spent most of his time on his mobile. No team moral expected to hit the ground running.

Pros

Money. Good location

Cons

Accts team expect a lot of you without training you bit at a time. Thrown in at the deep end. 👎

Lies lies and more lies

Not a great place to work, management not to be trusted, telling lies straight to your face. Then you have the blue eyed boys getting early finishs, but getting a full days pay. Most of there units are all well past there sell by date, and there tanks are all rubbish

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, average pay

Isnt to bad but room for improvement

Some planners expect to much or just tell you to get to locations early to be sat around for hours upon hours. Job is fairly clean and not to demanding for the money.

Pros

Left alone

Cons

Some planning

Not very good

I would stay clear if I’m honest. The rates are some of the lowest on the market. Far better money to be made without all the hassle of working here. The equipment is falling to pieces, constant problems with vehicles. It’s drama after drama and the reason why so many are looking for new jobs. Bad pay rates+Bad equipment=Bad place to work.

Pros

Near home

Cons

The list is long

Only care about senior employees

If you aren’t one of the chosen few employees on the board or senior roles you are less than a number. Got to be the worst place to work. No respect for employees and constantly lied too. The equipment is not even road worthy and the operation manager tells you that a truck with no lights is legal. Do not even think about working here

Pros

They smile while telling lies

Cons

Treated with no respect
Was this review helpful?

Work life balance? - NOT here

Expected to do long hours. Treated and spoke to badly. Very bad equipment and very old tanks, most in for repair. Some planners clueless. Facilities and main depot filthy. They dont own a depot, just use customers yards and get kicked out of most due to abusing it. So your expected to pay for parking but will reemburse you only £20. Has really gone downhill in past few years and drivers leaving in there droves, not just about pay, but working conditions/attitudes.

Pros

paid breaks (some) always paid on time

Cons

long hours, bad attitudes towards drivers, favours all one way! Very bad equipment
