    Most depots work on a shift basis, Brakes is a 24 hour operation. Shift premiums are paid on all hours worked between 6pm and 6am

  • Be prepared to work far more hours than contracted for no extra pay. Be prepared for new and short term drivers to do all the work while the long stays are home by 11am.

  • In the warehouse it's a standard 45 hour week, ie. no overtime payed for the 1st 45 hours worked, then any hours worked over 45 hours are payed at 1/14. not time and a half like most places, on average most warehouse staff work a split shift which means on average every 4/6 weeks you won't have two days off together, ie, you could have a Saturday off and a Monday, very unbalanced life balanced, I have read a lot of reviews about brakes jobs, and most of them are very negative but very true, i can say this because i have worked for brakes for nearly 20 years,

  • Some days are long and some runs need sorting but hours on driving at portbury are ok

  • Mostly good but can be a nightmare if u have depended
