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

Difficult but sometime can be easy

Training almost none existent. Work is hard but could be fun from time to time only if you know the job, witch will take some time to learn.Middle level management, planers etc are very good some time.The alarming part is vehicle and trailer defects completely ignored all the time. Your health and safety is not considered at all by the company.You will have to take care for your self at all times.Units and trailers are very old with poor maintenance record.

Pros

Curtesy cars provided by the company

Cons

Units and trailers maintenance

Left as i found a job nearer to my home address.

I joined Abbey Logistics in January. When the first lockdown came around I thought I would be dropped like a stone, I was thankful for Abbey keeping me in work. I left to pursue a career in another part of the industry.

Pros

Plenty of overtime.

Cons

Old trucks.

Have to put the hours in to make good money

Only way to earn good money at Abbey is to go tramping and put the hours in. Drivers not generally thought much of unless they do lots of overtime. You will be called weekly to work weekends.

Pros

Can work to suit yourself to an extent

Cons

Always want more

It is okay.

If you can adjust your mind to the idea that the planners will change their minds it is a good job. It can be pressured but in the end you can only do what you can do. Over the years I noticed a change in planner attitude, for the better. For me it was a great easy going place to work but with hiccups though that is part of any driving job. I would still be there but for the fact that I cannot do nights out any more. If you work for Abbey south east, you get a great manager

Horrendous place to work

Where do you start , planners only bothered about putting a name to a job an dont give a toss about what time you started or your driving hours or if you have had a break an speakin of breaks they get deducted off you ,you have to do more than 70-80 hours a week to take home a decent wage and your money doesnt go up when you do overtime, the atmosphere is terrible i have not heard a single driver speak good about this place since i started here also there is no work/life balance is just all work an the planner tell you when you can go home there is no positives working for abbey its all negative stay as far away for this company as possible

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, poor pay, planners/management

Productive but disorganised

the company runs efficiently enough but my hours and shifts are constantly changing and when its my time off I always get calls asking me to come in .I do not think there are enough staff and instead of having people to cover a lot of agency staff are used to cover unwarned absences of staff . there seems to be a lax a daisy approach to who will be in and when you can have leave paid or not. On several occasions I have been left on my own to cover Bank holidays and had to cover for others not pulling their weight.

Cons

4 days working 4 days off . makes it difficult to work out any benefit entitlements and tax .

Did not like it.

Too many bosses too few workers. Too many blue eyed boys taking liberties and leaving others to pick up slack. Some of the drivers were absolute quality.

Pros

few

Cons

many

Working towards been a good company to work for.

Training is good. More transparency needed. Job is steady . If work was right I would have stayed. Managment good. Company is improving and focusing more on drivers . I was let down by not been shown the loading which is an important part of the job . If you like to be clean and your vechile kept that way this definitely isn't the job for you.

Pros

Easy work, Training, overtime .

Cons

Loading (horrendous), average salary

Scabby Abbey

I worked for this Shower for 8 months hated it from week 1 but id given up a half decent job to go there. They are trying to take over the world as far as Tanker deliveries are concerned, and manage to f*%K things up in the process. cutting corners always on your back the more you do the more they want

Pros

none to speak off

Cons

too many to mention
