Typical day - you don't know what time you start , when you are "stand by" wich is very often , maybe manager call you , maybe not ...The work is form around noon and is to dark .... Some addresses are very worst, thini roads , bushes everywhere..During the winter you drive with tyres for summer... the company doesen't care for that and for your security , when you have a problem nobody help you ,when you scratch the van, they take double from you ....you rent a van from them and pay for it weekly, but they provide you with work only 3 days a week- not worth it.The drivers in this company is like dogs, and the FDTL doesn't care about it.That is my opinion.
there too many
Best team in U.K. I have a good experience.all staff are well trained and you are helped every time you have a problem.The FDL company is serious and in the future you will be able to have a secure job where you can support yourself and even your family are really happy to work for the FDL company.
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!
Pay. Health and safety. Great management. Fun work place.
When delivering some customers feedback may be inaccurate, leading to penalties.
It is a fast paced job but it’s enjoyable, the management is spot on they care about your wellbeing and support you till the end. Training is spot on as well if you’re unsure of something they will ring you and explain the procedures.
Long drive back home
I been working with this company from June 2019 and still working guys in depot office are great to work for when ever you need help they are there for example i had family death i had picked the rout up i was in middle off it i ranged up and they help out they are very professional and good paid
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
Long hours for a lot less than minimum wage
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
Lots of work available
Terrible company to work for
Very active job, so if you like to be moving about or would like to be more active, you will love this job. Various areas covered, making it fun to visit the areas covered. Managers are really helpful, training is provided and ongoing support when needed. Highly recommend if you are a self-employed contractor.
Very good company with a very good management. They offer you training, support and help if you need. The managers on site are professional but also very friendly and respectful to you and they will help you with everything.
Good management. Good salary. Friendly and relaxed environment.
