Had to join this company as Sainsbury changed agencies. From having 5 days a week with the old agency this has now dropped to 2 days. At the moment they are giving new drivers, who have been furloughed from their full time jobs, more shifts than us long term agency drivers. Cut guaranteed hours, put Ltd drivers first (so they can charge more and pay less) and lie about lack of work.

I can't find a good word about them. I don't understand how they still have some customers. I can't even give zero stars. Rubbish!!! Think twice before you gonna start to work with them. They can't even calculate you money properly.

Awful agency to work for, false promises and couldn’t run a tap to be honest,working in Sainsburys haydock and it’s horrendous ,it’s like going to the circus everyday. Us agency drivers are being used as a replacement for the core drivers as management Are saying the core are to expensive and the atmosphere is awful.

Promised more work than I could handle. Only ever got a single days work out of them. Rang them virtually everyday, never returned calls. Received a letter from them terminating our Agreement because 'I didn't keep in regular contact'

Absolute slave drivers with no respect for your own personal life. No support. If you are a fantastic liar then this is the company to work for. They promise you the earth and do not deliver. The whole company is corrupt from hr down to other consultants. Management have no idea about managing people let alone caring about them. If they dislike you they will do all they can to make life as difficult as possible. Generally not a good company to work for unless your face fits and if it doesn’t then you don’t stand a chance.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours. No support. Easily disposable.

On working for extra drivers I believed them to be a good agency but then unable to get your pay right and mucking you about I decided it wasn't me and left and decided to go elsewhere but that's not the end I got employment with another company but could not start till I had two references got one but extra drivers did not reply to numerous emails and after a month of trying to get a reference from them they withdrew the position and I had no job I don't believe this company should be able to advertise in the work place as they are not trustworthy enough and dont care about anybody as long as you earn them money and work for as little as possible
Pros
Getting correct pay
Cons
Sharks

Firstly I drove a 2 hour round trip to register with this agency. They failed to inform culina of what I could and couldn’t do (no nights out etc etc) (When claimed they had) and when I was the only one to care for my sick child and couldn’t go to work at 4am the following morning( it was 1:00 am before my child fell asleep) there was no understanding. When I rang the following day to arrange going back to work they pretended to not know who I was and after a few minutes suddenly remember me. They said they would ring back and never did 5 days later I left agency. AVOID AVOID AVOID THIS AGENCY THERE TERRIBLE !!!!! (your not allowed a day off to care for you sick child)!!!!! ( they need new staff and management on driving side)
Pros
None
