Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Easy job badly run all they want is the work they have to be finished. Your home life does not matter. Long days and rush rush rush. Good pay but people leave all the time, that must tell them that they need to fix things.

Good company for new starters

After passing my class 1 Ebs took me on as a brand new driver and gave me the training I needed. After 6 months of being with them I was the first one to be put on a new contract and i was getting pay rises and promotions, I always feel like I'm a part of the team and not just a number

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Can be stressful

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Great place to work. Great people

Worked here for over a year now and can say that it's one of the best companies I've worked for. Workforce feel like family. Got different chats where you can ask others for help and we all help each other

Terrible and Vindictive

This company is by far one of the worst around. Avoid if you value your life. They tend to put money above well-being, health, safety etc. In experienced office staff make a difficulty job even more difficult.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, withheld pay

Work Hard,get rewarded. Tanker driver.

Not sure why they are getting the bad reviews, I working for EBS from May2021 , and honestly,it's one of the best jobs I've ever had. Driving a new truck and always paid on time. Vehicles and trailers are well maintained.Management and office staff is friendly and helpful. It's a pleasure to work there.

Pros

Friendly staff. Well maintained vehicles. Competitive rates of pay.

Cons

can't find any

Great company to work for

Hours are really good. They recently increased my salary. You get a bonus each week for compliance also bonus if you work over 50 hours a week. Big office team so if you can't get a hold of one person there's always another person you can chat to. Really friendly team, feels like family

Pros

great salary

Easy work but can be dirty

Easy work, great pay for the job we do, top management need more management skills regarding how to speak and deal with the drivers that keep their trucks moving

Worst company I have ever known

This firm are terrible to work for as they keep pushing and pushing you to do more and more work want you back every day for preload then expect you to park up anywhere as they don’t pay for parking lorry’s and tanks are in a bad state avoid at all cost

Stay clear

Awful company to work for. Constantly pushed to get more work done. 4 nights away and wont pay for parking. Expect you to slump it in a layby or dodgy estate. No matter what, will expect you to get back to load for next day pushing 15hours twice weekly and the other 3 days a 13. Make you have reduced breaks. Takes money out of your wages for and damage (however slight) Management speak to drivers like muck. Expect you to sleep in container whilst your truck is in for service. Absolute joke of a firm. No respect to drivers
