Lack of management skills

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I would not recommend working here. Most of the managers do not have people skills. Some are 2 faced bully’s. They expect a lot of work for long hours and low pay.

Not the greatest employer

Poor management and they are not interested when there are problems. Expected to lie to customers. They favour all the yes people and not the actual staff that get the job done

Productive

Good company to work for. A fast paced environment so need to be very mobile. Hours to suit and additional hours available in the evening or at weekends.

Friendly and ambitious

Top company to work for. They value their people and provide opportunities for growth. Ambitious company always looking to innovate. There's a good variety of work to keep you engaged too.

Unproductive workplace

Less than average pay, unprofessional environment, lack of progression, same tedious regime of cold calling applicants and the rates the drivers make are unfair in comparison to other courier companies

Thieving Company

They cut you short on jobs just to pocket the money themselves. Even though they're making a cut from every job anyway. They don't care if you have health issues. Your expendable at any time.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours.

don't have enough work

send you to pick up 7 large 20kg boxes from south side of Glasgow to centre of Glasgow job pays £4.25 take of fuel and parking making about £2 and some jobs Glasgow to Livingstone pays £31 but if they give you couple of jobs same time they'll only pay you £21 for that same job because in there view were giving you a few jobs its all about shafting the drivers for anything they can.

Pros

kind of get left to your own

Cons

far to many £4 and £5 jobs not enough decent paying jobs

Ok for warning extra monies but tough to make it full time

Excellent for giving you freedom to choose how often you want to work and what hours.Inconsistent on earnings however and the recent fuel hikes not been reflected in earnings increasesSome days you will only cover your fuel

Pros

Very flexible and not hundredsof drops

Cons

Rates of pay poor after deducting costs

Liers

Controllers send u out far on motorbike, only to come back into town and theirs no work. They hire a lot of driver and then place some drivers on guarantee of 150 or 125 per day. They choose who to Work for them. Controller are rude, liers and pushy.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours, low pay, controllers are rude, waist time waiting and no jobs. Yet it's a very big company. Controller lie about job price

Profesional company

I have worked for a long time for this company and I can tell you that it is a professional and serious company, with colleagues who are always happy to help you solve any problems. I worked with my personal car. I recommend.

Low paid courier work

Lucky to get 50p per mile, some work at 43p per mile. Cost of fuel has gone up and yet price per mile stays the same.Can deliver all over mainland UK but for pittance.Would not recommend and will not be working for them again.End up put of pocket to deliver one parcel and they call and try make out you are doing them a favour by earning nothing.

Pros

None

Cons

Low price per mile, no guarantee of work.

Don't work for them, you won't earn anything

Worst company to work with. management are a joke. They expect you to do a job which could be a 50 miles and pay you £19 for it. If you say no, they wil get funny and won't offer you work for rest of the week.

Pros

None

Cons

Pay is shocking, don't waste you time

A really bad place to work - Drivers are being exploited!!!

I have been working for Citysprint for 6 months now, the pay is horrendous. I have no idea how anyone can feed their families with the pay. The hours aren't too bad, some long hours but it seems fair.. however the pay is so terrible, when you deduct fuel, you have literally done the job for free. The controllers in the office are horrible people, they definitely will not give you jobs if you upset them. They are rude and selfish, expect drivers to always help them out and work like a dog with no pay and they have no idea that us drivers are working hard, trying to feed our young children. This company is simply exploiting us drivers so the big people can make money.

Pros

You work on your own.

Cons

No pay and unethical people in the office.

I worked at Oxford for a year and before that at CrawleyI was given work most days, if you help them they will help you, had a regular round at Oxford with wickes every day plus Saturdays. Enjoyed every minute of it and would do it again

Pros

If you get regular work great

Cons

Can be long hours, help them and they will help you

A lot of changes

City sprint are in a bad state and have been for the past 3 years. They’ve found a buyer in DPD but they have been trying to sell for a long time and because of this they have been forcing out staff for a long time. It is not a respectable or nice place to work and whilst the culture was good 3-4 years ago it’s a shadow of its former self now.

Pros

None

Cons

Bad management, poorly run, unappreciated

Not enough pay to pay your way

As above , you’ve got to work more or less non stop and take every job that gets sent to you even if it’s a £5 job for 5-10 mile trip but you only get paid one way so it your pocket that pays for the fuel. Having you own van helps but wear and tare is NOT included in your running costs per job

Pros

None

Cons

You MUST work ALL the hours in a day to make it worth your while

Worse company to work for

They promise you good earning money but you get £5 jobs that you have to travel with your own car and their pay is not enough to pay for your petrol never mind anything else they give a job and when you deliver the item they deduct the money from original pay

Pros

None

Cons

Bunch of con people
