Delivery Driver in Cumbernauld
Good company to work for
Was working as a delivery driver delivering new windows and fixtures to the fitters , out on the road most of the day , but enjoy driving and was not on tight time frames like I've been before, all fitters and warehouse staff where great to work with, and no hassle from management as long as you do the job rightSome heavy lifting involved but the fitters or loaders where always happy to help Pay quite low for the job I was doing , but it is an agency that I was working through
Class C Driver in Newcastle upon Tyne
Extremely helpful and professional
In the year I worked for driver hire, they placed me into 2 long term contracts, one for 6 months, resulting in a full time offer (let go because of covid-19) and the other for 4 months, the staff at Newcastle branch were very helpful and professional, going out of their way to get me placed with the most appropriate employers for me, I could not recommend the Newcastle branch of driver hire more highly.
Rude management I called asking for work they refused to offer anything worst agency . Would not recommend the place. STAY AWAY!!!!!! Agencies are there to help not decline someone.
Delivery Driver in London
Good company to work for. Always paid on time. Work is varied, some long contracts. But work is always available if you are willing to take on any assignments available.
Recruitment Administrator in Manchester, Greater Manchester
I showed up to work early every single day and was never late, I was the first person in the office most days and the last one to leave in the evenings. Sometimes I even stayed up to 2 hours later to deal with issues e.g. drivers not showing up to a shift and having to organise a cover. I was on call working 24/7 for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. I dealt with abuse from drivers and customers with little to no support from my managers.Then a few months in I was told that they were very happy with me however they ‘’did not trust my commitment to the job’’. I asked for an elaboration on this as I didn’t quite understand what this was implying and this is when the franchisees behaviours completed changed and they both became very hard too deal with and increasingly less supportive right up until I was no longer employed by them. I was being left in the office for hours on end on my own as the franchisees were working from home and I even worked on my own for 2 full weeks whilst the 2x franchisees were on leave. I was the only employee of this particular office so was left completely on my own! The atmosphere in the office was horrible at times when the franchisees actually bothered to show up for work (which was not often). I was very micro managed and had to explain what I was doing and why with everything I was doing. Other than this it could be hours of silence within the office. During furlough I received no communication from the franchisees and had to reach out to them myself on multiple occasions.Upon leaving my post at driver hire I have had nothing but issues and I struggled to get my P45 from the franchisees. It took 6 weeks for me to receive my copy and took HMRC 4 months to receive their copy!!!!Overall I was overworked! Underpaid! and Undervalued! AVOID AVOID AVOID! There is also absolutely NO support offered to employees of franchisees e.g. a HR department or advice line. Meaning it is very easy for franchisees to take advantage of their staff.
