Terrible place to work

Terrible place to work. Knowsley depot is a place you must not go. Treat you like a piece of meat. Only care about themselves. Promise you work and don’t give you it.

Pros

Finish early

Cons

Everything else

Wouldnt wish on worse enemy

Theres a bad smell working with these, the jobs extremely stressful, your screams for help aint picked up, expected to pick up phone whilst rushing round delivering drop after drop or your dropped the next working day. Dirty used van, not new! Over worked, under paid and out of pocket. Not one care about your concerns

Pros

None

Scam

Numbers constantly jumping, paying you random ammounts, duducting random ammounts, adding charges, all while driving for amazon with your van stacked to the brim, makes a chinese sweat shop look like a holiday. the worst company I have ever worked for, bar non, whenever you question anything, you get passed around, no its the accounts, no its the van rental company, no its amazon...etc, worked 18 hour days non stop, no breaks, no bonuses because nobody follows the rules and if you did you would be comming home at 1 in the morning from 9am. Utter disgrace

Cons

Long hours, Terrible pay, 0 responsibility taken

Lousy poorly organised company suggest don,t apply to this firm!

I had an interview on the 16-05-20 with the lead driver and met the manager and had drug and alcohol test no problem there. I spoke with the lead driver on the 29-05-20 who said the manager had got my DBS check back and I could come for a classroom either Mon or Tues the next wk. Then on the 29-05-20, I got a call from the lead driver saying I could come in on the Mon for the classroom training at 10 am and hopefully could get my hire van afterward After the days course no van had come in but spoke with the lead driver who said I could get it the next day and start the next day. I then.got a text saying that Amazon had an issue with an e-mail set up for me as it was a spam account so they canceled it and through there stupid mistake and security protocol I had to have a 2nd DBS check done wasting more time. I then contacted Securitax a firm Deva put you onto to sort your pay/text etc out only to find Deva had given them a wrong spelled e-mail address for me! The manager passed the buck and gave me a phone number for head office so I had to sort this farce out myself. The 2nd DBS check came back on the 08-06-20 which the manager confirmed saying I might be able to pick up a van Tues or Weds and actually start work! On the 12-06-20 I got £75 into my bank for the day's classroom course not a lot when I should have been working earlier! The same day I got a last-minute text from the manager saying the van was now at the depot and could I get there for 12 pm I said I could get there for 2.30 pm but actually got there for around 1 pm I went to the Van with the manager and it was raining - 

Pros

Use of a Van you are paying £195 a wk for on a day off?

Cons

Lousy run company at HQ poorly organised

All lies

I recently gained an interview which lead to a job offer from Deva. Was promised £195 a week to rent a van and an early start date, this didn’t happen. I was told I could go collect my van, I got to the depot and it wasn’t there. I was told that it would be dropped off at my house, this never happened. 2 days later I was contacted saying I would have to pay £280 a week for the van and if I wouldn’t pay that I would need to sort my own van. Would not recommend, all lies.

Pros

None

Cons

Complete lie, don’t even bother

Don’t go anywhere near them

Horrible job. Excessive amount of parcels no guidance or support just! Claim you get bonuses etc which are none existent just out for there selves and want to squeeze the maximum out of every driver till you have nothing left! Then replace you with the next person who is drawn in by the fake £140 a day! Always taking money off you for something and so many hidden costs. Better off on jobseekers than working for these scam artists

False promises and Amazon are just as bad.

Lowest end of the food chain. No respect from from management or even amazon they don’t care for your own safety just there own targets. Complaints never get reported from management until it’s to late. Less than minimum wage.

Pros

None

Cons

None

Amazon driver!!

Deva services, good company to work for but the amount of drops Amazon issue you with is ridiculous. Money is good, none stop on the road, no time for dinner, constantly chasing the time. Overall Deva as a company are great but stay away from Amazon, some folk don't last a day, massive turnover, constantly recruitment.

Pros

No time for breaks

Bad Management, working hours, and quality of life

Long shifts. Some days I would be out the house from 7am to 7pm. Wouldn’t find out if I had a route until the morning. Pay was always wrong. Had to do extra work for no extra pay due to other drivers incapibilitys and management mistakes. Conned me out of money for van damage / deposit. The job may be good with another company in the depot. But NOT this one.

Pros

Can hire a van

Cons

Everything else

Honest opinion

All the people saying it’s an amazing company to work for must be delusional. Promise you 5 days a week, you end up with 2 days in a week. Them 2 days are to pay for your van £205. You’re then left with £80 for the week which you use for fuel. How can anyone live on £0 a week? Working to fill the van and work again. Absolute joke, if you wanna be mugged off then go for it but I wouldn’t advise it.

Pros

Able to use van outside of working hours, lovely customers

Cons

Miss communication, Long hours, False promises, Getting made to work 2 days so that they’re covered and you have nothing.
