Amazon delivery partner

Company is good, paid on time.Never had issues with the van rentalsHowever the bad bit is that Amazon pays. Most of times you are treated unfairly by Amazon Lots of mileage involved .Easy to scratch a rental on cottages.They dont cover all the fuel you need to provide yours. You got days you can have 180 dropsOr 100 drops city centre Starting late . Loading after 10am

Pros

Paid on time not scammers

Cons

Providing your own fuel, lwb Van easy to damage on routes and thirsty

The consultants don’t have a clue what there doing when it comes to paying weekly

They think people who work for them don’t have bills to pay and really don’t have a clue about what happens with processing your pay. They tell you you will get paid on a Friday but mid way into the new week still no signs of pay so gotta ask yourself why you’d wanna work for a company that can’t pay you on time. Also if your trying to sort out your pay you will rarely speak to someone on the phone they like to text the same thing over again

Pros

Stay as far away as possible

Cons

Won’t pay you, clueless consultants, don’t answer phone

Shocking agency

Worked there for two days got treated like a robot and was pushed to the limit. They where very unorganised and didnt give much help at all when required.

Pros

Not one

Cons

Worked like a slave, dont pay your wages and leave you chasing

Good money - poor organisation and leadership

Clear bias towards certain drivers. Any complaints/ concerns brought to the attention to management is taken personally which can lead to loss of shifts. No structure to work shifts - less than 24 hours notice for next shift. Lack of assistance and support if your struggling. No breaks - no time because routes are so big. Any breaks taken makes you fall behind schedule. If it wasn’t for the money I’d most likely go elsewhere.

Pros

Good money

Cons

No work - life balance

Fun and rewarding

I have worked for another company in the same job which was “UK Express” they were an absolute shambles, however since I have been working with DCS it’s has been a lot more professional and productive. The management have their head screwed on properly and they are also pretty lenient if I have ever needed time off for medical or childcare reasons. There is always scope to make a little more money too which is on offer most days, I highly recommend this company.

Poor Company

Suckered into a job that was supposed to be good, no training or direction given, good salary and flexible working poor management. Left to own devices. Poor office culture everyone there that joined recently left would not reccomend, didnt pay employees on time always waiting for money to go in bank.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Poor management and leadership

Stay away from this thiefs

Don't work for these highway robbers. I'll stop your deposit for a month even if you have your own van, for no reason. The fog of thieves I hope that one day someone will do the same for you in a beautiful way through a trial in court, and as witnesses all the employees who cheated you of money from their own work. I assure you that you will lose !!

Lots of hidden cost, Avoid!!

Avoid like the plague. Putting the facts based on working 5 days per week. £575 per week income £100 Fuel Cost estimated per week. You get 0.18p per mile back. £220 Van Rental per week £50 Deposit per week Payroll Charge £15 per week No ownership who pays for bulbs, blue dye, oil etc... Taking home 315 and still have to take your own tax and national insurance contributions. You will working virtually self employed and having to fork out your own holidays pay on top of this. Damages to the van even petty little ones get included. Which they will take out from your final 4 weeks money. Don't get paid until the 5th week when starting. Daily drop rate was supposed to be 120 and whilst training 80. Add 10% of drops due to multi drops which would add another 15 drops to the 120. Dependent on how the route is you could be working 9, 10 hours. Eventually drop rate get increased and you could end up doing 170 drops per day. The rate they expecting you to perform is 2 mins per drop. You end working for less than minimum wage. Just giving heads up if your looking into the van driving job.

The Worst

Constant non-stop work till you have blisters and bruises LITERALLY. The gloves they give you are too thin so expect some burns occasionally. If one person doesn't work fast enough then prepare for unpaid overtime . They value the brought in contract workers over their own staff. Once had a Workplace Health inspection to see if standards were good for staff - they finally turned the heating up in the middle of Winter - shame they lowered it when they left though. As long as the snobby office workers are okay I suppose. Bullies at work, they are mean in all languages - they'll say your name, look at you and swear at you in their language (you learn those words eventually) and in English. They will force you to work harder so they can do less but they are brought in contract workers and since management love them so much - they can do whatever. Line leaders don't care, went to HR about being bullied and got a letter in the post to say not to go to them again, in the future only go to the Line Leader. Also went through troubling times that meant hospital appointments. 9/10 times I attempted to contact the office the phone would ring out. When I finally got through to one person. They had no idea who I was, what department I was talking about and didn't care. Also had trouble getting paid properly (is it hard to get minimum wage right...really), payroll won't acknowledge emails. Any person working at DCS who doesn't do the factory work aka THE HEAVIEST AND HARDEST WORKLOAD that the others could not even comprehend in their egotistical tiny brains... should -
