Fun workplace
Fun workplace with a great atmosphere. The company cares about their staff and offer good staff discount. Colleagues get along really well and act like a family. Only negatives is that is can be a bit stressful when it gets very busy or dealing with angry customers. Pay could also be a bit more competitive.

Hard work but rewarding
Hard work but rewarding, deliveries are a slog with barely enough time to finish one before the next. The people in this company are their biggest strength and many of them seem to truly care. Making memories for the kids was a highlight whether it's Christmas or birthdays
