Work life balance.. there isn’t

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
GSSL are good as a company but managers have so much pressure on them.. paid on time but the invoices are slow. Amazon are a nightmare company who don’t give a flying big one about any delivery driver there is.. you are just a number to amazon. Salary is poor at a flat rate especially if you have to rent a van through them at 220 a week - no fuel is covered as mentioned in the advert - you won't get out on the open road until 12pm and will work until you have done all your deliveries which can take up to 7/8 hours sometimes more.. although this review is mainly pointed at Amazon unfortunately for me it lays to the company that are contracted with them. Oh yeah one last thing amazon always believes the customer regardless

Pros

Hard to think of any - you got a job I suppose

Cons

Poor money, no fuel covered, hard to get bonuses

Unpleasant environment

Parcels wouldn't be given fairly, so you end up on long routes for the same pay and getting almost minimum wage. Bad management. Would be rung on your day off expected to work and told you have to be available 6 days a week. No benefit of being self employed. Staff not treated fair.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Bad management

Well looked after

Well established company who make sure their employees are looked after. You have to take the rough with the smooth in any job but it’s always made to be as smooth as possible.

Pros

Looked after

Cons

Bad weather some times!

Excellent company

I've worked with GSS for quite some time now and enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. From time to time it can become stressful but that's the same for any job. It's very rewarding and you get to meet plenty of people which is great for me. Met some amazing new friends. Management are truly amazing and help in every way possible to make the job easier and more understandable.

Pros

Good money, meeting new friends

Long Hours, minimal pay

You'll be enticed with pay of ÂŁ140 a day, but after van rent (around ÂŁ30 a day, so the best way to make money is by using your own van) and fuel (around ÂŁ15 a day depending on where you're delivering to), you're left with around ÂŁ85. Considering the standard working day for me was 12 hours ( 9 hour shift, and travel to and from home to the depot, and from the depot to your daily route), ÂŁ85 a day really isn't worth sacrificing your social life for (you'll be required to work these hours every weekend too). You'll be asked to turn up to "sign in" at a specific time, but won't actually be on the road for at least another hour later, once the van has been loaded. Can't fault the management at all, they seemed friendly and helpful for the short time I was there. You'll also be using your phone all day, so a good phone is a must, as your battery will be drained in no time.

Waste of time.

Extremely disappointed by Go service solutions! In the contract they promise you the world and more , great salary and great deal . Until you start working for the company and its the complete opposite, you pay more for the van than anything else , fuel is NOT covered. The onboarding process is a joke , took 2 months to be onboarded with the company . Management is very unorganised and training is poor ! Highly disappointed and wouldn’t recommend working there . Gained nothing from this experience and wasted 3 months of my life .

Pros

None

Cons

Too many !

Awful

Delivering for amazon is ok but work for gssl and doing it is terrible, Manger’s (if that’s what you call them) just give you a route and that’s it, no help when struggling to compete work on time most days except to do 10/14 hour days, amazon sets the routes and they are awful gssl did nothing to help with the problems they amazon had with this, would recommend getting a different job avoid

Pros

It’s a job

Cons

Long hours no management way to much work for pay

Avoid

Poor management, don't care about the drivers , they only want money from Amazon.Long working hours ,no bonuses always add something "to do " on their list about the drivers and how they should act. You can't take a break like a normal person Max 15 mins per day.

Pros

Sometimes good days

Cons

If you want to be a slave go to work for them

Twatz

No complaints procedure. Discriminatory working practices and abusive management. Upper managers were poorly selected and incompetent. Mysogynistic. Bad.

Cons

Inappropriate behaviour from 'management'

Awful Company. Would give a no stars is possible

Did a days work for GSS and I wish I hadn’t. Through the interview the managers were talking badly about staff. Only question asked was if I’d been a delivery driver before (which I hadn’t) and then I was given all the job paperwork to fill in. Had to supply my own high vis and work boots which I was not informed about till I got questioned why I didn’t have them on my training day. Job described as being in Selby. Before the interview I was told it would start in Doncaster but finish in the selby area which I was fine about. Finish my shift n then told I had to drive back to Doncaster to finish my shift. Didn’t get a break or to even use the toilet for 11hours, till I got back home. Still haven’t been paid for my petrol, training or my days pay. Awful company. Do not recommend at all.

Pros

Gets you out the house

Cons

Lies about the job. Poor pay if you can get it. No chance for breaks. No chance to use the bathroom.

Experience

Not a perfect job. You work until delivery all what you have. Sometimes route longer than 9h, but sometimes you finish after 4-5h work. You take brake- you work longer.
