Tough and Physical but Rewarding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The days are long starting at 1100 and sometimes going home at gone 2100. It's busy physical work but if you work hard to get your route done early, you can leave a little earlier. Money is good. I worked here over the lockdown period and was a good way to earn money. Working long weekends was tough. Management was helpful even when you were struggling. All solo deliveries so no drivers mate to help. You got out what you put in.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long days including weekends

Theres loads of money to be made if you put the effort in!

Great job. Enjoy it very much. On the road most of the time so you are pretty much your own boss. Can be busy to the point that its stressful on the odd occasion, but what job doesn't have those moments. Money can be made in abundance if you are willing to put the effort in. Bonuses are always available for hard work.Big routes (sometimes 100+ drops a day) but you have support from the management at all levels, and the routes are planned out so if you do it properly you are done at a reasonable time. Still manage to see family plenty and chill as well as work.The staff are friendly, but like elsewhere some can be miserable gits. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed. Problems do occur everyday but can be fixed quickly if you follow the training. Management keep you updated and informed as fast as they can (sometimes takes longer tho due the the nature of the job. They are busy too). They are always on the phone if you need them. Just be patient you may have to call more than once to get hold of them.Best job I've had. Lots of money, lots of me time, good work to home life balance. Lets me listen to podcasts or audio books when driving.Its worth a shot if you like driving. You may like it you may not, but theres MUCH worse places and jobs to do!!!The job is what you make of it. Work hard, make lots of money and get financial rewards. Muck about, you won't get offered any work!

Pros

Lots of time driving, great wage if you put effort in, bonuses are available again if you put effort in.

Cons

Doesn't always go to plan, Heavy routes at peak times, Delivery App sometimes not accurate.

Shockingly bad

Con merchants who don't pay you what they advertise and take excessive amount of money from your wage for admin fees, send you out in broken unroadworthy vehicles and make you wait 6 weeks for your first wage, avoid these rip off con men at all costs. If you want to be treated like an idiot then go ahead and work for them, but if you value yourself then steer clear.

Pros

Leaving the company

Cons

Terrible

Would never work for this company again, I'd rather be homeless and living in a shop doorway, you would get treated better by strangers passing yiu by in the street, management dont give a toss about their workers, you are just a cash cow to them

Pros

I left

Cons

unprotected and unfair

they are not friendly. they pretend that they are friendly and helpful. the wage is not fair. just they work for the company and no insurance for the worker if it happen anything to him as dog bit.the time of work is at least 11 hours. if any accident happens to the Van or any property because the driver . he must pay the cost repair.the insure of the van is third party insurance.Never work with them or recommend it to anyone.and it not easy to find a toilet

Easy job money shocking worked here 7 months

This job is easy you get 200-250 parcels to deliver a day Routes are supposed to be completed in 8-10 hours But you can do in 4-6 if you get on with it as the app does all the work for you you just follow a marker Only reason I left is the money gets lower and lower as personal mileage is always wrong And you get charged for van damage you haven't done due to weekly checks not being done properly for months to the point where it's not worth itI Earn more doing part time deliveries in the evening after doing this all day If they would pay a bit better and stop charging you for things you haven't done they would be able to keep couriers for more than a few weeks/months

Pros

Job itself is easy osm is a nice guy

Cons

Money rubbish

Hard work but enjoyable

Great team on site, always helpful and supportive. It's hard work but the same as any other courier role I've had, you've got to be a grafter. Pay could be slightly better but that's just Amazon. Overtime was good.

Cons

Long hours

Pros

You get a van

Cons

Everything else

Not what it seems

the hours you put in and then after they take out van rental you get less than the day rate they say. The vans are mostly smashed and shouldn't be on the road. The only decent thing was my manager and lead driver who worked hard to make sure staff were happy. Sadly there is a high turn over of staff You are self employed w

Pros

management onsite was great

Cons

van rentel for vans that are smashed in, Long hours, paid less than the 120 aday they tell you on the day you start

Poor company to work for

Very unpredictable work patterns, you could be on the work list at the evening the suddenly off in the morning visa versa. This makes it exortremely hard to either plan or save not knowing each day wether you will actually be working or not. False advertisement in regards to pay, as they do not include all the payments you have to pay out. I have alod never worked for a company who do not care about there workers like this one do

No training at all

On my first day,out on the road, without any training at all, l was given an app , that sent me round in circles. When l complained, l was taken off the job there then and dismissed on the spot, l then had to wait 2 hours in a car park for someone to come and take over my deliveries.To say the least, l feel very disalusioned.

Terrible company

Has to be the worst company that I have ever worked for, lied to daily by them, ripped of on wages & had to wait 6 weeks to get paid then it wasn't correct and never was. Various charges made against your wage, admin charge of £10 just to pay you your wages, excess personal mileage charges even though I never used it for personal reasons, the list goes on and on if you want to be treated as a piece of dirt then go ahead and work for this company's

Avoid at all cost

Avoid working for this company at all cost. Management dont stick up for staff when dealing with Amazon. Given far too much work. They promise finishing at 3pm in the interview (if you can call it that) when in reality its more like 7pm. Head office have no clue. Over charged for personal mileage on every wage. Promised extra payments for helping out but when you get them they are never right and when disputed nothing gets done. And you pay £180 a week for a van that is dented over due services and alot of them are not even road worthy.
