Long hours dirty work and equipment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wages advertised are not achievable due to pay structure ie. Day rate plus tonnage bonus around £110 a day. Select drivers earn more as they demand the better paying jobs.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Long hours for very little reward, Trucks are being replaced but not keeped clean by drivers who use them, no chance of advancement, select drivers get all the best work.

Long hours, low pay, slave labour.

Job ad says 37 to 42k with o/t, complete fabrication.

Hgv driver.

Words do not describe working for Heygates. Salary is a stab in the dark and that will be max hours every day every week. Every drop you have to use break well tipping if you don’t your doing a night out and you will never catch up so will end up staying out all week! They will tell you no nights out in the interview . They don’t pay parking but expect you to use services at your own cost! Trucks and trailers are all old and cabs stink with enough dust on the bunk to grow there own wheat.

Pros

Free food from bakeries

Cons

Everything apart from the free food.
