Crewe Depot Management are a disgrace. Trucks loaded dangerously!No care for Parcels.Expected to do favours virtually every day taking up time you have put in to finish at a decent time. Drivers point Blank tell management what they are delivering.Zero Team work! Every driver is like a fishwife.Avoid with this current management No Backbone.
Pros
Non
Cons
Driving Hours are broken every week.

I worked in the Willenhall branch and to start off my shift, me and another lad were sent backwards and forwards because management didn’t do their job. I was then taken to where I would be working and given the “ basics” then get on with it, understandable it’s going to be heavy and sometimes you can’t be quick, but always shouting: COME ON, GO, GO isn’t the best encouragement. Then you get bombarded with different pallets every 20 seconds. Having to switch for one to another within seconds is a bud disorientating, then all you get is GO. Then if you aren’t up to par, you get taken aside and told you take the p***and that your making a mockery, then they use the” do you want a job” method of making you work quicker. I decided to leave because I value my mental health being in tact, DO NOT COME HERE, IF YOU VALUE YOUR SELF WORTH

Terrible Managers and Team leader. Managers and Team leader would hide in the office all night untill the work was completed then emerge in the morning and start degrading and shouting the odds at the normal workers. High workload and low pay. Have some self respect and avoid at all costs.

The worst company I’ve ever worked for you are treated like dirt set up to fail everyday then it’s your fault and you get a disciplinary for not achieving your impossible job. All managers treat and talk to you like you are a piece of dirt they expected you to work 55 hours plus and only pay you for 48I strongly recommend anyone who is thinking about going to work for this company to stay well away
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours underpaid

Bad route planning.Lasted a few weeks on 2 man team. Expected to carry large radiators and doors on shoulders. No stack trucks most days. Moving recliner sofas up 2 flights of stairs. Also the expect you to plumb washing machines sometimes. Only thing good was salary. Usually card in by 6.45amWorked out in the end to finish at 5.30pmSome American fridge freezers 120kg that you have to put in customers houses. No wonder high turnaround of drivers

Honestly never worked anywhere this bad in my life. The management (Leeds depot) are okay. Just usually got an attitude for whatever reason. The pay rate is shocking for the hard, manual labour. No benefits for working here. Been expecting pay increases for ages not happening. Equipment is always broken or badly damaged and just useable. Get moaned at by people who stand around doing fu**all expecting everything done in 10 minutes but aren’t willing to help. Honestly if I didn’t need the money I wouldn’t work here. Give them an inch and they will take a mile. Don’t prove yourself as a good worker or they will expect more and more of you with no praise. You also get winged at for having 5 minutes over your break🥱
Pros
Good people there
Cons
Everything more or less it’s s#*t

Expected to load your self with 2.0 tonne of flat pack furniture. Two runs a day over 100 miles 15 to 20 delivery's any room of choiceBullying supervisers management never there team leaders do favours for staff that sit around and come in later for same payPeople who set routes don't even drive or know about maintaining vans and the laws.You are expected to take 65kg mattresses Up 6 flights of stairs.. No thanks but as soon as a false complaint is made its statements and never ending topic.... Staff two faced gamblers drug takers and alcoholics with attitudes who are stealing the returned items and the charity recycling you pay for
Pros
Fixed hours if you drive at 50mph and break your back
Cons
Too many

I had no interview or introduction to the job whatsoever, the job was offered me by City centre recruitment they call me at 6pm and asked me to start the same day at 1am so I went there, reported to the manager.The job was 1am to 9am, minimum wage ÂŁ8,72, for a night shift is way too low, and is quite a heavy job because the only thing you do in 8 hrs is unloading boxes and parcels (from 1kg to 25kg) all the time and put them in line for the next day delivery.The manager never explained me what to do, I had to asked around what to do and how to understand where every parcel has to go. The "cantine" is a sh... Hole, very dirty with old broken and dirty sofas, you have just 30 minutes brake and can't go to toilet outside the only miserable brake, around 7am I asked for 5 min brake nad was told, no, from the manger. Don't expect any social distance, gloves or masks, toilets are disgusting. So at the end of the shift I said thank you so much I am not coming backAVOID DX at all.
Pros
None
Cons
No reasonable brakes, dirty place, no social distance or gloves or masks, no time to go to toilet, no explanation about the job.

Dx freight is the modern equivalent to slavey Minimum wage for working nightsYou are told the nothing is over 25kg But most of the freight is.Up to 250kg tryes that are stacked on top of each other ( total lack of HS ) All you hear all night is hurry up move faster by a gang of people in orange hi viz jackets.Most of them have no team leading skills at all just a loud voice.Next to the mangers swearing at each other and the staff.And that's just one Indian lady .The end of the night is the worse 15+ manager's all shouting at you some only just old enough to vote.Total lack of respectThe canteen is dirty and to small for the number of people that work there. No socal distance .The toilets or dirty no hot water only one hand dryer works There is even a guy that will time how lomg you take in there.There is no good points about this place How it is still open and way they treat the deck hands that keep the business running is mind blowing DX freight hang you heads in shame and people do not work here

I worked here for 5 years and I can honestly say it's 5 years of my life wasted.The job in itself is great but the management will NOT leave you alone.I have had a few jobs and seriously list this one as the worst.There is absolutely no management in Glasgow at all.Health and safety is below zero (not exaggerating)If you walk out because you're being spoken to like muck the management tell you to leave but then they're at your car begging you to stay because no drivers want to touch them.To put it straight.....If you don't mind being talked to like dirt health and safety doesn't bother you ,You're pushed to the max (literally).You don't mind being bullied by idiots .Then this is the place for you,I'm telling you straight,STAY CLEAR AND DON'T RUIN YOUR LIFE. !!!!

Really nice group of people but very much stuck in the 90s in terms of the way they work. In terms of the market they are probably a good 2 or 3 years behind the rest of the industry in terms of the offer with a real need to combine 3 separate service offerings which unfortunately wont happen anytime soon.
Pros
Friendly colleagues
Cons
Management style

Pros

Impossible to do the job long term as you are doing two mens work. No matter how young or fit you are, that simply cannot be sustainable. Management don't care, at least one is well known throughout the NE and not in a good way.
Pros
Wages
Cons
Excessive weights of some items (87KG!) to be moved by one person
