Class 1 driver

I would not recommend anyone to work here unless you are a new pass and just want experience. They hours are all over the place and you end up working 13 14 hour shifts. You can have a 7am start time 1 day and 11am the next with 1am finish.The trucks are defective aswell as trailers. The work is 80% Amazon but very poor planning. They pay a day rate so not bothered about delays or anything. You often get stood down 1 or 2 times a week due to them not having work and without pay. Basically your treated like an agency driver while being permanent as it's cheaper than agency.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, muddy site, defectives trucks, not guaranteed 5 shifts a week

Pros

No one bothers you.

Cons

Can't think of anything.

Good and decent company to work for , was going through pains when i worked there

I enjoyed my time at Cross and would still have been there had part of the growing not had a manager that was a pain, basically , he could talk the talk but had no idea of transport practicality nor man management . I believe he is no longer with the company , I would serious consider working there again . Decent pay and kit , run legally

Pros

Run Legal, decent money, friendly attitude of staff and management

Cons

The depot yard was hard core, and you arent assigned a vehicle as a tramper .

Don't bother

Badly run, some great people working hard to have all efforts ovetidden by one 'man'. MD has no interest. Drivers are treated like dirt. Nuneaton depot has no facilities for drivers. Traffic planning office is staffed by people who have no idea how transport works...

Pros

None

Cons

Its a job
