It’s not a bad place to work, the money’s decent and the commission can be very good too. That is if you hit your target, which can be hard. No matter how hard you try and persuade and give great deals to the pharmacies they simply do not and will not purchase from you, including pharmacies that do not want to be contacted. They make you feel you are not doing your best even when you are trying so very hard.
Pros
Pay, Commission, Breaks
Cons
Pressure

Stressful, no help from management. You have to constantly monitor what hours you do as it's common for wages to be wrong..............................

It’s a good place to work but for what you do and fast paced the pay ain’t worth the stress. Some of the workers are ok to get on with some can’t take a joke or chill out always looking over shoulder.

Useless company to work for. Quite a few rude staff and employees. Not very professional compared to a lot of top company’s Ive worked for but they seem to think there the best and have the best methods for every aspect which they don’t at all. They wont listen so you have to lower your self to there level. Very boring job delivering drugs no job satisfaction at all. Also if you leave a little bag of drugs on the side by mistake you get instantly sacked which is ridiculous.
Pros
Nice canteen
Cons
Boring lifeless job.

Very poor company to work for, the hours are based on 48 per week working 6 days. Most of the time you do at least 1-2 hours overtime each day as the routes are poorly designed for the drivers. Bad management do not care about your safety. The vans are always poor and never adhere to safety regulations. I.e receive an van with bold tyres expect you to drive it. Only benefit was the pay, but forget that you don’t get a social life to spend the money. Being a outboard driver probably would benefit you the most so you don’t interact with management. Hard hours not woth the money unless you don’t have any family or hobbies.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Support, design of company. Needs shaping up

This was a good place to work. Only downside is management on the evening shift, totally fake personalities, will tell you what you want to hear to keep you sweet. Will never honor their word and honestly don't have a clue what they are doing. Definitely need replaced otherwise that place isn't going to last much longer as they will only help relatives and friends succeed.
Pros
Nice start time and good workers
Cons

I spent 8 years with this company. At least 6 of those I spent majorly stressed. Management haven't got a clue as to the roles the drivers have. In fact, one of the Driver Team Managers wondered why a driver who was stuck in traffic in London had a problem because she saw that "the big blue road on my screen is clear".... Yeah, that "road" is in fact the river Thames. Good pay, awful hours, even worse management. If they paid me double I'd never go back

With being for alliance for nearly 3 years unfortunately I am never going to get this time back. The work itself is ok but it is like working with a bunch of cavemen who have no idea how to run a business. In fact I am insulting cavemen comparing them to management at this place. If you feel you need to be mentally unstable, drive yourself to drink, then definitely apply here. The favouritism here is unbelievable and unless the face fits you will never progress at all. I've seen monkeys in a zoo with better leadership skills than the team leaders they have at alliance healthcare. Avoid at all costs!

Honestly only apply if your desperate for work. It seemed like a decent work place until I started. Great if you fit but if management don’t like you they’ll make your life hard. Good location for travelling to work is the only good thing

Drivers treated like a number in this place and expected to work harder to help save others mistakes. Very seldom backed by managers about anything, constantly under pressure to do things quicker and god forbid you make a mistake!!
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Long hours bad managers the list goes on really

You were expected to do overtime when asked on the day.The management were more supportive of mob rule, and workers who threatened violence against a colleague.
Pros
Reasonable pay.

First of all the transport manager has never been out on a run and he has no clue what he’s doing and you get dropped quicker than your hired with no notice or reason. So stressful it’s unbelievable, your always to blame for everything and you get treated so unfairly. I urge everyone to stay away, this company made me depressed and not want to get another job. The only decent people there are other drivers. Apart from that your on your own. No training, your expected to go out on your own with a van full and expected not to make any mistakes. Shambles
Pros
Toilets were clean.
Cons
Everything probable literally.

I worked for this company for 12 years but for the last 6 years it's been slowly sinking. The management literally have no idea about man management and no idea what's going on at thier outbased links. If you like to kiss the boss you will be fine but don't expect any respect for doing a good job. The management constantly try to discipline people for anything they can find, they make everyone feel undervalued and moral is very low. Most of the driver are excellent, luckily for the management team, because if it was left to them the place would go under in a week.
Pros
None
Cons
Rubbish management.

Where do I start my day should start at 7am but need to arrive earlier to park my van in it’s designated space (because stock is in the way) unload empty bins from night before then start to do a porters job (no extra money) by splitting pallets down of stock and placing it at the rear of each van not just mine some 9 or 10 vans in all then scan everything onto your van in order of delivery then off you go out on the road the lighfoot system monitors your driving you may get a phone call telling you to slow down great if you didn’t have so much work to deliver all being well back by 1pm lunch till 2pm then repeat you will find that your going out to the same customers this time you may only have a tube of cream in a bin for them not anything urgent which in our opinion is what it should be urgent orders only the truck that brings your pm work down to you is not allowed to leave the depot until management say so they sometimes make it late waiting for 1 bin which in turn makes everyone late I could go on and on but do yourself a favour don’t leave a decent job to come here you will REGRET IT big time
Pros
Pay
Cons
Long hours battered vans bad management old Epod system poor overall
