It was okay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I had worked there for only couple of days since it was a lot of heavy lifting, that was too heavy for me, but while I worked there people were nice to me.

Bad management

Scrap lorryes, route planning ridiculous, transport office attitude is like superstars, they think you have the honour to meet them. Just don’t go if you are a professional driver


Good cantine


Almost everything

Fleet department

Good salary, working continental shifts. Paid bonuses depending on management reviews and performance. Management could be more hands on and engage with employees.

Stay away

If you want to keep your mental health, your finances and your family and any life you might have then stay away from this place!!! My experience is of the sheffield depot and the leeds ( Morley ) depot. Both sites have a culture of bullying by management and also the shift managers who think they are some type of gods. The hours are ridiculously long and the time pressures put in you to scan and load your van in a morning is ludicrous. Then when you leave the depot the pressure with eta’s continue all through the day. Then when you finally get back to the depot at night loaded with collections your faced with huge ques to tip your van then extremely unhelpful staff to take your returns from you. Then you finally get home work out how much you’ve actually earned for the day, cry then get up again a few hours later and do it all agin!! Then the weekends leading up to Christmas come and you will be working every single one of them. But I’m the plus side you get Christmas Day off!! For now!!! This is the worst place I’ve ever worked and wouldn’t advise any one to go there

Worst job in London

It’s has everything negative you can ever imagine. A lot of in house fraud and favouritism. Drivers are getting more routes and better routes for paying managers and higher up people.


Keep applying for another job


15 hour shifts is normal

Great place to work with competitive salary, reasonable work hours as well as a job that keeps you fit and healthy.Con would be tough work during winter but this is out of company's control.

Overall decent

Long Hrs but rewarding work, every day is different.Pay is not too bad but could be better considering the load you get throughout the day and the drops you have to do.

Enjoyable work

Coming from being a self employed heating engineer this job was an absolute breeze.The only downside is unloading once or possibly twice a day.This will probably change at busy times

Garbage company to work for

What is the best part of working at the company?Nothing good about it. All they want to do is make you work 11hrs a day and you get nothing in return. ODF driver's are treated like dirt and they force them to take out to many drop's so working from 5am until 8-9pm. They are a joke...What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Everything. That force you to go over your contracted hours and don't care if you have child care issues because of a situation they created.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Worst experience I've ever had.What is a typical day like for you at the company?5am start. Had to wait for my round to be loaded onto the Saturn. Had to find half the drops because they weren't in the bay. Then load you van after scanning everything.

Good company for long stay. Job is not too hard. Working hours ok. Some parcels are very heavy. Nice Crew. Health and safety. Lovely atmosphere, everyone are kind for you

Job is fast paced and challenging but if you are willing to work hard and put the effort the job becomes easier the more you learn your route. Worse part is trying to get loaded in the morning.

Good Job, Good Pay

I enjoyed my time at DPD, I worked as an ODF (Owner Driver Franchise). The pay was excellent, sometimes over £200 per day. It was very tiring however; hard work and long shifts.

Typical mutidrop job

This job is not for everyone. If you have a delivery driver background then you may do well. It can be extremely stressful and they always want more from you.

Disorganised and chaotic

Avoid working for this company at all cost, avoid working for the MRFs (Multi-route franchises) too. Rules suit them as and when they want and they'll just not pay you if you cross them.
