Poor leadership
Poor training high turn around! High chance of damaged goods due to poor inadequate loading. The route plan was never in order no one new how to do it and if you changed it moan, if late moaning can’t win

Fast paced environment. Night shifts only.
Typical shift starts 23:30. Checking up you vehicle and preload cargo . Collecting paper work. Route is planned for you but sometimes need to be corrected. Deliveries to multiple sites . You need to prepare every order on your own. Not mistakes allowed.

Hard work, but not expected to be easy
Typical day: you get to work, you get your run paperwork, and then leave as usually your lorry is already loaded (sometimes you might wait). You have the same round every day (20-40 drops), so after some time you stop using the sat nav, which makes you finish earlier. At the begining it's confusing, you make mistakes, then you have to fix those mistakes, but sometimes it's just too late. When you get to know the products you deliver, you start making less mistakes. Once the job starts beeing more automatic, you start finishing earlier - as you finish once you finish your round. You start around 23:00, and finish when you finish - it might be 7:00, but it could be 9:00, but in the begining you might finish later (till you learn the round). From time to time you might get asked to do overtime (2-3 hours) which is paid decenlty. More often you will be asked to do Saturday runs, which is paid more than Mon-Fri, but it was too much for me, as I didn't feel like having enough time to rest. The job is hard, and that's what I expected to be. Every product you deliver by hand, sometimes you take cages to customers premises (you load the cage with products on site), sometimes you leave products in a padlocked box. Some people used to drop full cages from the truck, but after few incindents it was recommended by management to stop that kind of practice. All trucks have cameras (4), so if by your own choice you hurt your back, you will have only yourself to blame. The drivers and the warehouse team I got to know, were very helpfull. Direct manager always on top of any issues I would have, and everything was sorted quickly. So I can't say anything bad about that. Hardest part is weights. You handle around 2000kg on a daily basis, in fact - night, as most driving possitions cover night shift, and that makes it additionally hard - you start your working week on Sunday night. Best part is when you learn the run you finish early. Would I recommend working as a truck driver in WHD? Yes, but don't expect it to be easy from the start. Advice - when you feel sleepy, just stop and have a 15-45 min nap - saves your life. Don't rush.

Be careful of of the job description!
This job was ok for a while as All youbuad to do was sit there answering and making phone calls to take customers orders, and then passing on the orders to the people in the warehouse, but the money was rubbish (at the time i worked there it just about reached minimum wage!!) And you would be lucky if you worked no more then 6 hours a day!! When I applied it said the job was permanent but it turned out I was actually covering for someone on maternity leave!!
