Driver in Bathgate, West Lothian
on 24 August 2020
Be cautious of managementOverall I had a good experience working for the company. Only negatives where the management. They say one thing but don’t follow it up. Having owned my own business previously I would be seeking new management. Great team of drivers though. It is what it is. Watch your pay as again management say one thing but do another....

Fast paced, easiest hardest job going.1, 4 days work - yes 4 days, then 2 days off. Means days off change and get fair share of weekends off.2, Van hire, insurance etc. Weekly fee distributed over 6 days, covering all required insurances, servicing, tyres etc. Like any other driving job, deductions for insurance excess are made, for driver fault accidents. Fuel you use getting to depot and back home are not covered, like any other job.3, Work Rate and Experience - Can be days when things go wrong, like any other job. Start is actually from depot you are working from, stay 2 hrs away and adds 4 hrs to your day on top of 9 hr working day. We can all choose personally if we wish to do this so not companies fault no matter who the company is. Lots of parcels ( maybe up to 300+ some days)to deliver, drops (can be any amount from maybe just 4 to 225 - based on what have actually seen) to do. WOW, guess what, that is where the money is, and what you get paid for.4, Need to supply own device- Brilliant, get what device you want, but bear in mind it WILL be dropped at some stage, it will get wet at some stage, and it will probably get covered in snow too at some stage, and it will use battery like you have never seen before. So get one with a good battery that you really can chuck in the bath or throw at a wall, but then you get paid for using it on top of your wages, so no cost issue.5, Some days can be a hard to get hold of management NOW, but always get back to you ASAP.6, Can be days it gets you down, but someone or something somewhere will put a smile back on your face. Workload may seem excessive, may seem like day will never end or can’t be done in time allocated. Yes think everyone has this problem. Got solved when it was pointed out that it was an attitude and perception thing. Then it got easier. Would not have thought it, but it does make a big difference, just need to get head round it, the whole drive, stop, deliver etc. thing. 7, Probably hardest part apart from needing eyes everywhere while driving is the up and down stairs for most of the day and people not answering their door - happens more than you may think - but then it does keep you fit. Upside, good excuse for eating lots of chocolate etc.8. Start times can vary on what load volume came into depot, when it gets sorted etc. Might change at short notice and in rare cases will know night before, but generally not. If prepared then not a problem, other things to do, places to be, just be organised and have what you need in your van not your house then easy.9, Sometimes delivery route can appear wonky, may on occasion be a missing or extra parcel, possibly may be late departure out of your control, often have to play Tetris when loading van.10, Enjoyable parts, get to meet loads of people every day, banter or whatever you want to call it between drivers is good. As long as just get on with job get left alone to get on with it. Then opposite is true if don’t get on with job.So yes, if you deliver parcels in a timely manner, regardless of where, think most drivers don’t actually know areas they actually deliver in, no matter what town or city you may be in, can adapt to how the routing thing on your phone works, make sure it has actually brought you to the right place, sometimes it doesn’t, confirm your availability for work the following day and the morning you are working, arrive at depot on time etc. get loaded and get out, then it is a decent job.At the end of the day, everyone wants to get home ASAP, and there will always be someone that gets home earlier than you, got easier route? Not normally, just better or more experienced.

Delivery Driver Multi Drop in Carlisle, Cumbria

A great start but ended in a ShamblesIt is what it is. I delivered parcels on behalf of Amazon and from that point of view it couldn't be easier. The Amazon side of things worked brilliantly!My issue came with Pegasus Management. Induction and training was nothing like they promised. The managers at the depot did not treat the drivers well at all even those that were constantly jumping in and helping other drivers out. I was asked on numerous occasions to help other drivers out which I did however no further compensation was offered (yes I could have refused but I got on really well with all the other drivers and didn't want them to struggle). Van hire seems a bit extreme and the advertised benefits aren't what they seem. Every pay day saw issues with underpayments and over deductions. These issues would take up to a month to be sorted and invariably would only get sorted once the issues were escalated up.All in all I would do the job again but would find someone else to work for as Pegasus only seemed to care about the metrics and seemed to forget that they had people working for them and not robots!!
