HGV Class 2 Multi drop Delivery Driver in Reading
on 4 February 2021
Hard work stressful
Been working for Brakes now for four years at Reading.I find the work very hard stressful and very exhausting.Early starts 0430 is very hard.Never got used to this times but it's a job and earning me a living.No work life balance.Always tired at home which is a worry to my personal life.Would love to have a shift starting later.Perhaps 0600 for example.Management are good to talk to.Not bullies.They do have time to listen to your concerns.But nothing changes.Job would be great if you could start a little later and have regular routes that you know.Planners mess you around to much.Not knowing were you are going all the time isnt fun.Brakes are a good company to work for.Negatives:Route planningEarly starts.Positives: Later startsRegular routes

Truth of Brakes
Yes it is hard work hence the pay level, Management are always there to talk to as are all the other drivers . If you are looking for easy money then do not come to Brakes but if you are willing to work then i would say its probably the best company in this area of trade

Good company...let down by toxic culture
Generally a good company as a whole as I've seen various depots operating however ....over the time I worked there it has gone from a friendly upbeat place to arrive at work to somewhere that stresses you out every single day , managers and other admin staff have changed and so has the trust and teamwork between drivers and office staff , very much a them and us attitude right now. I would say Upper management need to be more hands on with the office because your message of mental health awareness clearly does not resonate with some of your DSM 'S , which in turn is the reason you are losing long term, experienced , very hard working drivers ....so you managers and TSD 's who think your smart and clever ? You are the opposite and shooting the company as a whole in the foot....but that's what you do . Good luck to the lads that are sticking with it because you will need it .

Fun but stressful work place
Friendly people, hard job It’s alright for beginning job. You can grow up in this company. Any problem can be discussed with the management but it doesn’t mean that the problem it’s going to be solved

A ridiculous abundance of petty managers, loads of them, none with any responsibilities.
Terrible routes. If you return half an hour before your shift ends they will send you on another run. Twice they took me within 15 minutes of my maximum hours!
