Nice place to work but

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Nice, enjoyable place to work, but you can earn more elsewhere. All drivers are on different rates of pay, your new starter inexperienced colleague, may be on more than you and not work Saturdays mornings like you have to. Difficult job for HGV class 2, I don't think there is a more challenging job. This is good but the rates of pay do not reflect the skill. Long Hours, every other Saturday.

Low pay hard work

The better you get the more work you will recieve. Work late lots and dont expect overtime pay, In 6 months i finished on time 5 times. You will work under travis perkins so you will need to understand their procedures etc. But the better option is to work for them. Hulls Keyline branch is notoriously low pay. Compaired to Yorks branch. Even MKM on the same road will pay you more for the same job. The drivers dont stay working at this place long.

Pros

Training HIAB in particular

Cons

Awful treatment

Extemely overworked and underpaid

Tool-hire driver been here 2 years expected to run a tool-hire branch by my self on a low salary promised i'd get a promotion turns out that's not the case i was refused 2 personal pay rises and expected to do everything on tool-hire from delivering ,collecting tool ect to servicing to paper work serving on the counter. don't get me wrong i love doing tool-hire and i love the people i work with but its way to much for one person to do by them self's. Had to look for a new job as i can not afford to live on the wage thay pay which is a shame. 99% of office staff wouldn't touch tool-hire with a barge pole.

Pros

awesome team to work with

Cons

poor pay, lack of support from regional directors and ops managers

Good Career

A good company to invest your future with. Excellent benefits package but actual pay is quite low. Plenty of opportunities to advance within the company and they are more than willing to provide lots of training. Management apprenticeship scheme is fantastic!!

Pros
