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.

A lot off false promises and half truths told at the beginning then it goes down hill fast, told at the beginning that we could earn £700-800 a week and work 6days a week, two days in got updated that the max was 5, four or five days later was told our pay was going down from £143 a day to £123, initially told that we worked a fortnight in hand was then told its 4 weeks and we are paid on the 5th, I thought that wold be it but it gets worse, we were told that all fuel was covered its not, the drivers put in around £80 of fuel a week but are reimbursed around £50, you finish your last drop sometimes almost 2hours away from the depo, they will tell you must log out as your day is over but you would be expected to drive an hour or two back to the depo to drop off undelivered parcels then be interigated as to why you didn't deliver them maybe 2 or 3 out off 250+ parcels for the day, thretend almost daily with the sack and my days working was 3 or 4 a week by the time I paid £210 for the van rental and the prosesing invoice fee of£24 I was lucky to make £180 a week, the prosesing fee I was told was £12 when I started. It ended up 2days a week and I was let go as there wasn't enough work then more problems, I had a scuff on the passenger door and a 1mm chip in the corner of the window when I handed back the van so they took 31 days to assess the vehicle before saying that it was £1870 worth of damage witch my month in hand was only £1020 so I owe them £850, apsolute joke, if you want to be a slave go and work for this company

Where do I even start? I started working for FDL after graduating as a quick source of income. It started off well, colleagues are helpful as well as the managers. But that’s as good as it gets. They treat you like slaves. 150+ stops a day. 250+ parcels a day. You end up doing ridiculous hours to the point £127 a day isn’t even worth it. They give and take your shifts whenever they want. You sometimes end up with 4 days of work doing split shifts - pocketing around £90 for the week after they deduct your van costs (£210 a week - ridiculous).This isn’t even the worst bit. After they mistreat you, they rinse you for every penny they owe you. My last pay was meant to be £1,200. But I ended up having to pay £1,400 for 2 scratched alloys and a small scratch on the bumper. They milk you for every penny you have. You’re better off being unemployed than working for these scammers. Absolutes joke of a company.
Pros
Absolutely nothing
Cons
Long hours, rubbish pay, bad working conditions
