Honest review

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I’ve been working for FDL since May now. I can genuinely say that it’s a really good job! The only down sides are no holiday pay, sick pay or pension as you are classed as self employed. However, you can pick and choose your working days. Management are very kind and caring and they do care about what you expect from the job. The pay is brilliant. You are your own boss! Amazon staff are kind and courteous. FDL staff will do anything to make your life easier! Really, really great bunch of people who together makes up a very strong team! You feel very proud at the end of the day. You definitely feel like you’ve accomplished something! There’s the opportunity to work away from home, your accommodation is paid for and they provide an incentive to go too! There really aren’t any negatives about this job apart from the things I mentioned! Some days can be busy, however, compared to other companies in the Amazon station our routes are so much easier than theirs! Brilliant company!

Pros

Kind staff and management!

Cons

No holiday or sick pay and no pension

Delivery driver

Poor company, lying to much, always promising you bonuses but never wanna pay, managers take in to walet. If have any chance i just not givint a star for a rating, no recommendations at all, plus, if you are renting van you make a biggest mistake at all, i was it get invoice with 900 pounds.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

NO time for toilet, not talking about coffee

bad

Some mangers send you to help others but they don't always pay the overtime. Some managers give you big routes but pay you the standard route rate. All managers make yoy pay for damages to the van that you didn't do or you shouldn't pay like tyres. Some managers give routes to their driver friends even if you have a better performance.

Pros

you work like a slave

Cons

they steal your money

Good manager

I've been an employee of FDL for about 3 years now and I can honestly say I would rather work for them than Hermes company. The manager is very good and kind.
