Fast paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced, six nights per week can be draining. Good for steadily building up wealth week by week. Not a great work life balance working six days. Enjoyable in the summer, not so much in the wet winters.

Good place to work

Good place to work under the right management would be good! You don’t really work for modernmilkan but a sub contractor for drivers and they was a waist off time

Pros

Free milk sometime

Cons

Some staff

Don't waste your time

I would not recommend this job to anyone, given a big round and they keep getting bigger 200+ drops, vans are barely road worthy, most people that work there are not very nice, avoid this job.

Pros

I really can't think of anything good to say about this company

Cons

Long hours, they keep adding drops on to your round, vans are not maintained, management are useless

Poor communication

They interviewed me and had me on a test run really quickly and everything went well, I fully expected to be working with them and they gave me no reason to believe otherwise. After my first training session gets cut short, they proceed to not contact me for 2 weeks, only to then email me saying that I'm not a good fit for the job with no other context or reasoning.

Pros

Good pay Friendly staff

Cons

They hired me when they had nothing available Extremely poor communication

Ran by incompetent people

Great idea great job, but not ran properly a lot of chiefs and not enough Indians shame as this company has massive potential if ran in the correct manner in my opinion the chocolate milkshake is amazing though

Pros

Free milk and other products

Cons

Long hours and zero help from management

Easy-going work place well run and organised theres always someone available to speak to if you need them

A good place to work i got eased into my roll as a milkman and then placed on my own round shortly after there is always overtime/more drop to cover. The job is easy to do everything you need to no is on the app they give to the driver so you cant go wrong really. I enjoyed my time as a driver but moved up within the company and i find my new roll to be just the same easy goin and able to do with the write tranning which is provided

Pros

Good pay, opportunity to progress within the company if you want to

Cons

Long hours to you find you feet but thats it really

Avoid at all costs....

Areas keep getting bigger and the staff keep getting less..... expect to work around 65 hours a week unless you race around like a madman. Do not be tempted.

Pros

Van to and from work.

Cons

Too many

Great management

working for the modern Milkman is fast paced work but you are well respect and thanked for going that bit further in your job role. The company is ran by brilliant management they are very understanding around home life and families. And always went the extra mile as a company for their drivers which is surely missed these days.... Highly recommend working for this company

Pros

Independence

Cons

Busy and fast paced work

Poor company

supervisors and managers dont listen to feedback,overworked and lose money based on customers, who arent always telling the truth.Vans are a mess and take weeks to get sorted if they have any issues,no communication within the company and just expect you to accept any sudden changes to your route.

Good job, good pay, great management

Great company to work for. Well managed company with good pay. Very accommodating when it comes to needing days off and will give you plenty of overtime if required.

Stressful

Avoid like the plague very unorganised, routes are unorganised shambles whoever put them together lives on the moon Sometimes 5-6 mins between deliveries,No work life balance at all. If you have a bump take £250 all in one payment.Management where I worked where under enormous pressure, to the point where he quit !! Was the best manager I worked under very fair tried his best to help you out and put you at ease.

Pros

Management

Cons

No work life balance

A great job for getting out what you put in

Genuinely a job where hard work is rewarded...Great place to work and great people to work with ...it can be tiring getting used to night work but once you are accustomed to that there's a real freedom to achieve. If you are prepared to put in the work the rewards are there to see.

Pros

Pay, conditions

Cons

Exposed to the elements which is not always a great thing.

Easy & Rewarding

I started a few months ago and my training was great. I was slowly introduced to the role so I understood it fully before heading out on my own, this way I could ensure the customer got the best service possible - one thing that The Modern Milkman strive for.I work for a franchise of The Modern Milkman but they both have the same ambitions. I would highly recommend the role if you’re looking to get fit, enjoy working alone (but also teamwork when times get tough). The job is capped off a by a bonus scheme if you complete more drops and do them correctly, something which has been made easier since the routes were improved so you can complete more in a short time frame. The job is easy.Another plus - each site has the same ethos, easy to fit in and get on with other drivers. It’s easy to pick up extra work in other areas if you fancy a change of scenery!

Pros

Working alone, Bonus scheme

Cons

English weather

There is a great work environment even though we are out on the road alone I know there's always someone nearby to speak to and the management always answer my questions and solve problems swiftly.I would definitely recommend anyone to work here, the pay is good too.

Pros

Good pay, good environment

Cons

Struggled to adapt to nights at first, but soon got used to it

Dont read the negative reviews

I have worked in Stockport for 18 months now and yes things change regularly but overall everyone is open and honest and the pay is really good. Not forgetting i get to take the van home with me and fuel is provided. There is a job to do and im left to it but there is always someone there that has my back. If you are bored of your job defo apply you wont regret it

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Bad weather
