Driver in Castleford, West Yorkshire
Unless you want to work for free I wouldn’t bother. You don’t get paid when you start at eg 6am and they’ve not loaded your van till 8 so you’ve lost two hours and then when you’re late back they don’t pay you even though it was their fault you set off two hours late in the first place. They don’t provide any equipment which isn’t safe in terms of handling goods. They will fine you if a customer makes a complaint even with no evidence just their say so. They give you work and then they cancel it so if you’ve employed your drivers mate your then paying them and not getting paid yourself. Honestly it’s really shocking I’m surprised such a big company has not been fined by HMRC or something for how they treat staff.

Great job, excellent vehicles
Was there for 6 years at yaxley, wish I could get a reply so I could go back. Loved the vehicles they had, miss the customers overall, A.O has some amazing customers, all different walks of life and with this company they seem to interact really well with the delivery staff.

White Goods Delivery in Stoke-on-Trent
Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.
Alot of stress, pushed to cut corners due to the load, loaders made life hard (mixed vans, missing goods). The better you do, the harder it gets. Which in my opinion is quite a flawed system, I quite enjoyed the job in the beginning; starting at 6am, finishing at 1pm/2pm.We took pride in our jobs, always had 100% (if you dont get 100%, you won't get days, that's just how it works). Unfortunately this led to us getting the hardest days. (35 deliveries, including connecting 4/5 washing machines aswell as collecting scraps which there was never space on the van for, along with multiple American Fridge Freezer connections) meaning we were working minimum 12 hour days but only getting paid for the 'route hours' which always seemed to be like 6-8 hours, you can try to get paid for your hours, but you won't get them. Worked multiple 70+ hour weeks, only got paid for 40 odd hours. Shame, I enjoyed the job for the most part in the beginning, alot of satisfaction, just a shame about the management!
Easy job but rubbish bosses
The job is very easy, nice if you have a regular crew mate who you get on with. The wages are decent too. Shame about the stuck up bosses and dodgy crew leaders.
