Not bad money

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Some staff are very good. A lot of handball. Not always giving you clear instructions. People are very friendly. A bad toilet, not too clean and comfortable (yes, some time it is impontant for drivers)

Do not work here !!

Wages are always wrong, management haven’t got a clue what they’re doing !They hire people who have no relevant experience just so they have a fall guy to blame stuff on after not giving any proper training, they don’t train drivers and send them out after 1 day and then discipline for doing Somthing wrong ! Can’t get in touch with anyone anytime to discuss important matters ! Honestly the worst place to work in history. Avoid at all costs.

Very Welcoming and Supportive

Very busy on the operations side possibly a little understaffed and would benefit from 2 operators as well as the general administrators would be my only advice. Friendly people all round and always willing to help each other. Drivers can play the game and would benefit from some training when refusing to do what is actually a simple and safe manoeuvre and yes I can also drive so can do their job. The yard guys were amazing and cheerful despite their own issues ongoing regarding pay. The offices didn’t have heating when I worked there and were expected to get your own heater ?! Overall a nice office environment


Good hours


Need more staff for certain job roles

Great on tankers. Other contracts may be different

Worked on Tanker side of things, kind of separate from the company as a whole. Small separate depot where everyone knows each other and helps each other. Can't complain. Wages were pretty good.




Long Hours (but thats haulage though)

Good company

I have worked at 3 different depots and was treated well at all three. at my current one, I have no issues to complain about, i like the job, the work isn't massively hard, management is approachable and helpful as much as possible, planners and office don't push you to run more than contracted hrs each day, pay isn't the best but isn't awful and any rare mistakes in wages are rectified the following week. my only complaints are my personals preferences which can't be met with the nature of our work.

Long hours

If you want maximum hours go for it, have to keep ringing up for start times daily overall not a well organised place to work, Start times vary day to day

Toxic environment, poor leadership and direction from office, pushed to the max every day. Place has too much going on dangerous yard. You're just number here
Was this review helpful?

Not for me

Not somewhere I would recommend, poor management and lack of teamwork across certain departments. Pay is not reflected to the hard work you are expected to do.

Good Job

Easy job, job and knock but paid overtime which is very nice. Company does listen to what drivers want with regards to a shift pattern change. Very well organised apprenticeship scheme. Shame you have to pay for CPC when you leave which I think is very tight.

So far I really good fun place to work

Only started a month ago but so far all of the staff both in my own team and other team/ locations have been really nice and helpful. Management have a good balance of being supportive and helpful without being over bearing.


Flexible working hours

Not everyone's cup of tea

Great company to work for, although hours aren't for everyone (00:30am-2:45am start). Fixed salary, overtime paid above 48 hours after deduction of 45mins break every day worked. Multidrop deliveries mostly. Not hard work, only the start times are killer.

Fun work place

The job is exactly what I was looking for and it's ten minutes from home,so it's a win win for me.People are helpful if you have any problem.the trucks are generally in good condition and not too old.

Fast-paced but relaxed environment

Very nervous about leaving my previous employment where I knew the people + the role inside and out, but Ted put me at ease from the moment I walked into the office. There is a lot to learn in my new role, but the team are very helpful and supportive - while everyone is busy and has a lot to sort within a working day, they are also very down to earth & you can have a laugh and a joke with everyone too.Your working days go by very quickly.

A very date culture

Whilst the perception of this business is of a modern, thriving, innovative and forward thinking business the leadership and over all culture is very dated and one in which only a very few people are allowed to make the decisions.


Not many
