Love out on the road but yodel dont care

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very unorganised with parcel couriers. Taken for granted, must go through a lot of couriers. Must lose alot of good couriers, it's a shame really. But you get away with it.

Delivery driver

Very bad place for work Yodel in Northampton ... They don't care about the people . Bad managers for sure but main problem is all service partners. They should be fired all of them.

Pros

I didn't find them

Cons

A lot .. no security for your job, long days, lies ... Less money, heavy parcels

Awful company to work for

Awful management, told me start of December to start after I applied in September, I waited the whole of December and they kept no showing, my start date was the 11th of January. 6 weeks later than when I was told I would start. No communication, I enjoy the work but complete at on my company. They just take the p*** out of you. Office girls speak to you like your nothing, anyone who works for yodel think they are above air and can speak to you and treat you like s***. Please don’t bother

Pros

Time your yourself and be your own boss

Cons

Yodel have no communication

Easy going to suit your needs

I started this job a few months ago in this crazy period. Everyone is so supportive any questions u go on group chat and really expect a reply in minutes if it’s finding the house which within minutes u will get a reply. Got a package with car scraper , hand sterilise, wipes , phone battery pack , face masks plus jelly beans. I’ve worked for a lot of companies throughout my life and I love this one. U can make your deliveries any time u please as long as it’s before 9pm. I myself cannot fault my experience

Pros

Choose your times

Cons

Terrible place to work

Worked here for a long time moral just got lower day by day wanted blood out of a stone and paid pennies security is a joke for a parcel company no way to better your career treated very poorly only upside is that there are some great people work their but sadly they are very under appreciated steer clear of this company if you want a well paid job

Pros

Let me think........ you can pick up your own parcel if it hasn’t been stolen!!!!

Cons

Very low pay and poor working conditions

Leeds Yodel Depot.

Under Yodel there are Subcontractors. Very Unprofessional people. They will use you for a busy period or just on a temporary basis. A very low class of people with no future ambitions. My advice stay away. !!!

Pros

Nothing good to say about them

Cons

Terrible

Terrible Company

One of the worst companies I've had the misfortune to work for. Ply you with parcels and boxes big or small not caring less if you've got the space of an articulated lorry or a mini. Wash their hands of you if something goes wrong (and it will trust me). Hadn't even the decency to tell me I was fired they just stopped sending stuff. Pay you 60p per parcel so that company directors can get their millions out of this you've to return up to 3 times if not in. Expect you to bend over backwards for them. If there was a zero star rating I'd give it to them all day every day.

Pros

None

Yodel

Used to be a decent company to work for until they decided English staff were a luxury and they could get the same level of service from cheaper options. Years down the line they have lost all meaningful contacts and are now basically a furniture delivery firm.

It's a job, what more can I say.

Working at Yodel sometimes meant working extra hours (Which were unpaid for loading the van prior to the start of the shift). Overall the job was okay as at least it provided some source of income but I would exactly call it a job for life!

Not bad

The people there was ok, work was ok but the pay was fair for nights at least. Not much to complain about. just another temp cv gap filler. No permanent jobs on offer.

Fast paced job

Must be prepared to work harder than others due to lack of teamwork. Management dont listen to concerns raised. This can be a fast paced environment

Pros

Can be easy

Cons

OK as far as it goes...

Fairly average place to work. I was temping and was glad enough to come to the end of my contract, but on the other hand if they'd offered me a permanent job I probably would have taken it. Some people there were a**holes - same as you'd get anywhere really - but at least the management didn't press you to do things you couldn't do, once you found your level. Biggest headache was getting repairs sorted on vans, most of them had something wrong with them. Couple of times I had to refuse to take vans out that weren't fit for the road and they didn't like it. At the interview I was told I'd be allocated a regular area, get to know it etc etc, but that never really happened. I found deliveries around my local town a doddle because I already knew it, but most of the time they would send me to other places which would be a struggle. Some of it I was getting to know at the end...

Shocking

The actual work was no problem we got good runs and always had communication with the depot. However they led me to believe they where going to give me a permanent position! Even after working there for a year and 3 months with 1 weeks notice they let myself and 5 others go who had all been there the same amount of time! For a company this could have been done better and we all felt cheated as management had said there was permanent positions in the making
