I worked for this company and to be honest I would avoid this company at all cost. Management treat you like you are nothing, and they expect you to be on the road from 8 in the morning till 10 at night even although your only aloud to drive the van for a maximum of 10 hours pre-day as per amazon's rules. You pay £200 per week for the van and only work 3 days a week out of the 6 so your basically paying for the van and have small change for your self. When i left they are trying to say I owe them over £1000 for damage to the van that wasn't there when I handed the van back.Avoid these cowboys at all costs.
Pros
Self Employed
Cons
Long Hours, Poor Pay, Poor Management.

Absolutely appalling company to work for. Be very careful when you leave they will deduct money for vehicle damage even if it wasn't damaged. I would not recommend working for them. There are many other driving jobs out there. Stay clear of this lot

I have been working for this company for 6 months and they have fulfilled on there promises. There management is superb and the head office addminstraion team is just as good regarding invoice queries. They always given me work and extra wheen asked, depending they have that day. The management always look after your safety at each branch. I've been given work from the North to the South, that's how big they are.Providing you follow the rules and don't cut corners you get paid exceptionally well. Safety is always no. 1 concern for FDT, and to make you money.HIGHLY recommended working for these!
Pros
Pay. Health and safety. Great management. Fun work place.
Cons
When delivering some customers feedback may be inaccurate, leading to penalties.

I’ve been with Fast Despatch for just over a month. So far so good. I’ve had no major issues and any minor issues I’ve had have been rectified with management quickly. Overall it’s really enjoyable if you enjoy a face to face role and enjoy a fast paced job

FDL is a great company to work for. There are a lot of drivers you can expect help from if you need and management team is always right behind you and happy to help. I’ve never been left on my own to solve a faced problem during my time!
Pros

They treat drivers with no respect at all, with a take it or leave it attitude. Also since I left they owe me £2500 in unpaid wages. Shocking company to have any dealings with the whole experience is one I’d rather forget, but it won’t be over until I take legal action to get my money back
Pros
Lots of work available
Cons
Terrible company to work for

worst company to work for !! you get paid after 5 weeks because they keep a deposit from you (usually 2000£) until after you leave but bare in mind! if you make a single scuff or scratch, the deposit is gone! they will charge you 2000£. Management is terrible! they promise you 5 days per week but they only give you 3 days and every 3 weeks they give you 4 days of work max! they are forcing you to split shifts at least 2 times a week. If you take the rent out, you're going home with 30£ profit that day! they literally have no scrupules! Avoid at all cost!
Pros
none
Cons
long hours, no breaks, poor management, over 250 parcels a day
