Pay was on the lower end with a high turnover of staff.. Some people who had long service mostly say it used to be a good job. The skills you can get at Calor ADR HIAB etc are worth the low pay because once trained you've get much better pay elsewhere.
Pros
Always looking for staff
Cons
Seasonal

Company does a restructure every 5 years, possibly they feel they need to get rid of to many staff. But they kept inexperienced staff on instead. Play with people’s livelihoods. Then palm off important jobs to inexperienced staff. Baffling!!
Pros
On site canteen
Cons
Sensitive cattie staff.

Decent lads, that's about it, management is poor beyond belief, job is easy enough, agency don't speak to calor and vice versa, management don't have a clue what's actually going on on the shopfloor, aslong as you turn up you'll keep your job, regardless of how lazy and unwilling you are to learn.
Pros
Decent canteen, decent lads
Cons
Management are clueless

Its very hard work, but the pay is good.Treat you well and the management are friendly and supportive.Training is very good and plentiful.They ask if you want to work overtime and no pressure.Only gripe I have is the vehicles. You switch around alot. Would be great to have your own.
Pros
Cafe on site, free tea and coffee also PPE Is top notch and free.
Cons
Hard work you need to rest at weekends.

I worked for calor over 2 winter seasons , all they ask is you follow the procedures correctly. Earnings are great when it’s cold and average in the summer. You’re not guaranteed full time work because the job is reliant on the weather , hot weather = very quiet and obviously colder weather = extremely busy. What I do know is due to working with fuel they have 2 way cameras in the cab and you cannot use your own phone whilst driving and if the office call you on cab phone you will need to park up before answering or calling back, so can be a very isolated job.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
Very isolated job

A very demanding job physically which I enjoy, although eventually your body pays the price. Can be a 1 off load all hand balled, to 15/20 drops of various amounts of cylinders to mix of industry/stockist/domestic customers.The cylinders vary in weight from 10kg up to 85/95kg.You are expected to risk assess delivery site and refuse delivery if unsafe although evidence is expected.Big part of job is installing cylinders to domestic customers which can be difficult, and then there is the traveling community and there dogs.Wagons are all very well maintained and well equipped for job( full length side lift and tail lift) although generally Daf.Class 2 nowadays are generally swb so expect to go any where.Good t&c’s and pay is on the good side for class 2. Company is very big on h&s and in cab cameras. Biggest gripe is unpaid breaks, if you can manage it physically it’s a good but demanding job. Recently relocated from Blackpool to Preston and no one left. In general lads all help each other out, and a genarally happy place even in office
Pros
Overtime at time and half and plenty of it. Not just driving job
Cons
Demanding job physically and allways outside in weather

The management was terrible, the pay rate was awful for the amount of work you had to do, get better pay in retail, doing half the work. Wouldn’t recommend this job to anyone, there’s a reason they have a high number of people leaving each year

A very warm and welcoming business; the work culture is extremely healthy. Flexible work timings and the liberty to work from home make it even better!

It's a joy to work for Calor. The people are all focused on giving 1st class customer service and the company value each team member like family. I cannot recommend enough.
Pros
Wonderful atmosphere to work in
Cons
There is a lot to learn but a joy

Too much work for the driver. In my opinion the driver should deliver and come out when he finish to deliver. The company wanted the driver load, unload the lorry as well. Low salary for a class 2 with ADR

Please stay away from this company I’ve worked for some fuel companies before and this is the worst of them all . When you talk about health and safety they say it’s is paramount to them but send you out in 2 foot of snow . There’s a saying customers are first priority but you look after your employees and they look after your customers
Pros
Security
Cons
Muppets all over the top end of the company

Work for them for along time as not much work where I live so was stuck there, very stressful company, informing you that always someone willing to take your job, just a number, not well organised, unappreciated.

They encourage you to work and think within a safe environment. Good place to work hours can be long to get the deliveries done but it’s swings and roundabouts
