HGV Class 2 Driver in Glasgow
on 19 April 2022
Long hours, low pay. Monday to Friday job. They load your vehicle and have your run ready every morning.
It's not a bad place to work if you don't want that much money. Even if you work 50-55 hours per week your still going to end up with about 410£-440£ per week in your account. I can see that there are jobs with much better pay out there for hgv drivers than this one.It's Monday to Friday for class 2 hgv drivers. It's usually 8am-6pm shift. But maybe 1-2 times p/week they call you 6am, so you do a 12 hour shift (6am-6pm). Once a week you'll probably do a 13-14 hour shift.They don't bother you much if you get the job done, they have your run ready every morning. You just grab the keys, check the pallets and go. They don't pay for breaks.Offloading 1 ton pallets with a manual pallet truck at random houses, shops or small farms that you can't even drive in with the lorry, is the hard part of the job in my opinion, but this doesn't happen too often. Maybe you'll have 1 of these difficult drops per day, or 1 every 2 days. It's random.Other than that, it's ok to work there. Again: if you don't want to have much life Monday-Friday and you don't want that much money.You also work alone which is great. If you get the drops and do the job, no one bothers you.

Great company to work for
There are always drivers that whinge and moan..... My experience of RTK has been overwhelmingly positive. Yes they push you to get the job done and the hours are long, but isn't that what the job is about? Money is good, transport office are friendly and management are supportive. Trucks and trailers are being updated.

Not best place I’ve worked. Planning office seem to have no idea.
Poor Company they bill you for damage even if it’s not your damage. Equipment is shocking and old. Always taking trailers to be fixed drivers don’t care. The lorry’s are old and all limited to 53 witch is simply dangerous.

Awful
Horrendous, my first job as a class 1 driver. Was promised support and a mentor for at least the first week. Got absolutely nothing other than 30mins on the first day and was then criticised once mistakes were made. Found another company where I was given the proper support. Best thing that happened getting away from the company.

Many areas to improve on
• I asked for training in the interview and didn’t get any. I was thrown straight in the deep end from day 1 (however, I did see 1 other driver receiving training whilst I was there). • Unrealistic workload, and will even try to add some more on top of that. • They have a system that can see when you put your card in the tacho, so you get paid from that time. I made the mistake of going to the office to pick up paperwork first, then I’d go to the truck. • Force you into reduced rests as much as possible. Will take you as close to 60 hours as they possibly can (and more in my case because I was naive). • Will tell you that you’ve still got 3 hours left…at the 12 hour mark. • A lot of the office staff are very nice, but, some of them like to bad-mouth drivers if they aren’t the fastest (even if it’s not the driver’s fault).• 45 mins unpaid break. • Ratchet straps are like hens teeth. Some trailers have none, some drivers have 40+ in their bins.
