All starts well then goes down hill.....DONT APPLY

Started the company working around 12-14 hours a day earning around £500 a week....after I paid my van £175 a week and diesel £150 a week I was earning £175 a week doing minimum of 60 hours. Not even £3 per hour. You also have to have around £400 to use for diesel for first 2 weeks as you don't get paid for 1st 2 weeks. When the school holidays are there your lucky to earn £100 a week. Also if you get jobs out of London area it's advised you call the other offices you are going to be clearing near . I did that alot but most numbers are 0844 or 0845 and it cost be average of £10 a month extra on my phone bill just to ask for work out of the area. It's paid 45p per mile maybe bit more on the odd job. You will go to Leeds for £125 after £30 diesel and van £25 per day it's disgraceful pay. Make own decisions but I wouldn't ever do a job like this again.

Pros

Do own hours but need to work 14 - 16 hours a day to earn

Cons

Bad pay on 99 percent of jobs, drivers come and go everyday, LONG hours

courier

I work for 3 courier companies and Rico is one of them. Like all companies you get good days and bad. Rates can vary depending on the client and the office for which you take the work. I note that when I work for London sites I got paid 0.70 pence per mile but considerably lower rates from non-London sites. I learned that you need to build relationships with the sites and make yourself available. The way to make good money is to call into locations and introduce yourself to the teams, let them know where you want a job going back to and 50% of the time you will get something. The App was okay. Getting offered jobs at late hours was a bit annoying as I do not like working out of hours. In summary quite a good outfit to earn money from along with the other companies I work for. The industry has changed and you need to work with a few companies to earn decent money and learn which sites are busy. My best day was £427 and my worst £102.

Pros

often get distance work.

Cons

wait and return jobs do not pay great

No initiatives to push you forward and no real management.

The job is ok if you are someone that likes to travel but no garuanteed work. The pay is not worth the fuel you put in your car to make the deliveries. Sometimes the hours are really long if you're assigned a lot of short jobs you can't make much money on. Expenses usually added up to half my pay, if not more.

Pros

None.

Cons

No security. No work guarantee on a daily basis.
