Reviews about Pay & benefits for Driver at CitySprint

Alright, but ONLY IF YOU CAN GET SPECIAL WORK. If not, avoid like the plague

Have worked for citysprint for almost 10 years now, doing special contract work and therefore thankfully dont have to go into the office every morning to beg for jobs (that pay less than minimum wage after costs and van maintenance are accounted for) Luckily i am on good terms with my area manager , because any issues with being underpaid (which happens all too often) are resolved reasonably quickly once i make an irate phonecall. The handheld satnav/PDA thing you receive the jobs on costs over a thousand pounds a year to rent from them, they insist you have a van under 5 years old (doing 160k miles a year so its useless after 3 years) and they are all too happy to try and give your jobs to foreign-born workers who take the jobs on at a loss.. Its only when these stand-in drivers get it hideously wrong and mess up that they come crawling back offering you the same job back again. The only way to profit in this job is to find a long term hire van company and try and talk yourself into getting a good rate. BUYING YOUR OWN VAN IS A FALSE ECONOMY, YOU WILL NOT MAKE THE PURCHASE PRICE BACK BEFORE IT HAS TO BE SCRAPPED! Currently working roughly 13 hours per day which is, strictly speaking, illegal. When notified about this they suggested cutting my daily round in half which would mean im actually at a net loss. If i had to go in to beg for jobs every morning, i wouldnt have lasted a month. Utterly disgraceful way of treating the drivers who arent assigned to special standalone contracts. They have also recently had a lengthy court battle, paying top lawyers thousands -

Not as good as they make out

I have worked for city sprint for over 2 years . I like working for them and they pay you after a two week period . I pay £20 a week for a Samsung job machine which my work comes in WHICH IS A RIP OFF off as this cost me £1040.00 a year Out of my pay . BUT there are SERIOUS ISSUES with the way they tell you how much you can earn and how much you make. My start time is 0700 and I normally book on at that time My staff office is very friendly They tell you there is a job and it sometimes looks good on paper but when you work out the mileage and the TIME it is not worth doing. I hate turning work down but I have to as it works out AT LESS THAN MINIMUM PAY . I have seen my office trying to recruit more transit drivers YET they don't give the transit drivers that have been loyal to them the work Transit and large van drivers need a proper rate of pay for the vehicle they are driving NOT THE JOB THEY ARE ON . ie. If you send a transit on a van job pay a transit rate, Not small van Some weeks I get very little work because I have to turn down small van jobs as it cost me more to do the work in fuel and time. I have managed to get a couple of clients myself and they say when they have used city sprint the driver always complain about how little they get paid for that job. Yes city sprint can be good But when you turn jobs down I am sure they put you on the back of the list as a punishment CITY SPRINT YOU A BIG COMPANY " BUT LOOK AFTER YOUR DRIVING STAFF". WE HAVE FAMILYS AND BILLS TO PAY INCLUDING MAINTAINING OUR VEHICLES WHICH ARE REPRESENTING YOUR -
