Horrible place to work

Shocking place to work.. pay is below minimum wage.. you get no time off or holiday pay. Managers are just there to make the drivers lives a nightmare.. keep well clear

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Low pay

Long hours average pay

You only get paid if you deliver your parcels. But people seem pretty laid back you can earn your money if you're prepared to work long hrs, and I mean long hrs . They paid ontime which is always good 😂.it was ok as a stopgap job.

Pros

Paid ontime

Cons

Long hrs for average pay had to use own vehicle no uniform provided you only get weeks notice

good team of drivers you work with

yodel was a job you would turn up for every day to work under your own supervision and the job was what you made of it. Good relationship with other drivers and depot team.

Pros

worked under own supervision.

Cons

could be long days.

your just a number

management dont care about the couriers unless your a man in van low volume as all work goes to miv even with a minimum cap they send out very few parcels most days after fuel its well below minimum wage wait until lunchtime to get your parcels. work withdrawn as they give it to miv when you have been servicing the round for over 12 months. no communication and if they decide to give all your work to miv because they are complaining of low volume you just get a text saying they have no work for you WOULD NOT RECOMMEND WORSE THAN HERMES TO WORK FOR

Pros

None

Cons

Low wages little work bad management

Hard work no reward

Working for yodel was like pulling teeth!! No real direction, for a self employed position you have no say in what you do, the cost of getting started can be expensive because you pay for fuel, insurance And in some cases van rental, which means your working for 2-3 days before you make any profit.

Pros

Non

Cons

No social life, to much cost to drivers to do the job

Ok

job was OK. Money was poor for the distance you travel.. because you are self employed they didn't give much leeway with regards to time off with family problems/ childcare. I understand that because deliveries need to be met but there should be someone to cover at short notice but they are so under staffed

Pros

early finish

Cons

none

Don't waste your time

The management of the Farnborough depot is totally clueless about anything that's going on in the transportation industry. Overtime is never paid but they want you to get your job done o matter how long you have to stay, salary is the minimum for the country but stress is at top level.

Poor company

Awful company to work for, only way they stay afloat is high turn over of staff. Get paid practically nothing for a parcel don’t even get 30 parcels a day so I earn about 20-23 pound and out of that I’ve got fuel and also data which they expect you to pay for. Minimum wage is £330 ish for 40 hours or around that I regularly get £60 for SIX days worn.

Good crack

Yodel was a decent place to work. There is a good atmosphere and everyone gets on well. The only thing they need to do really as a company is secure more contracts as the work dried up and they had to make cuts.

Pros

Banter

Cons

Pay isn't great.
