LGV 1 Driver / DSS Driver (Former Employee) – Various Locations – 9 December 2017
I enjoyed my role within Eddie Stobarts as I got to work from various locations and see different aspects of the contracts that the company serviced, it was a good starting point after leaving the forces.
You work 12-15 hours a day, mostly 12+ hours. The planners are useless and are clueless, only a few decent planners, those that are decent are ex-drivers. The management couldn't care less about your well being, bullied into work and to complete training which you don't feel confident enough to do. Driver moral is in the gutter, most new drivers leave after a few months if they last longer than a few hours. The job would be good if they put people who know what they're doing in charge. The only good thing about the job is the equipment isn't that bad to use.
Worked for this mob for 3.5 years, poor management some companies only treat you as a number. At ESL you are not even a number, mate. Promises never delivered, phones never answered the £15 tax free meal allowance is now under threat due to the revenue taking an interest. Me I will stop here for the shore future, but seriously this is not a good company to work for.

This company absolutely worst. Especially with drivers, they think nothing company left on the earth.They are a best, never seen bad company than that!!Pay a parking ticket with drivers, then given back a half money two weeks later. Because food tickets included in a price. Also if a company want to park in the service area, then they need to pay!!! If I would buy a bad food I will gonna buy it!!
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Coalville – 6 November 2017
split shifts one week days next would be nights, sometimes running on for two-three weeks on one shift. working in your allocated position on the line till break then swapping afterward. i had learnt how to work in a team enviroment and work towards a taget. the management was there or there abouts most the time checking over how we was doing but would seem never satisfied on most occasions. the workplace culture was very much much with little communication. the hardest park of the job was having to stand in one spot most of the day. the most enjoyable part to honest would just having a little conversation to boost our moral.
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Bardon – 6 October 2017

Warehouse Administrator (Former Employee) – Dagenham, Greater London – 26 September 2017
Poor company that doesn't care about its employees . Managers not held accountable for their leadership behaviour . This a company that should be avoided . Their high turnover is a direct result of the incompetent management
Customer Controller (Former Employee) – Warrington – 25 August 2017
Long hours, depressing work environment. Management are only interested in managing each other. No one is happy, all the staff constantly moaning about the place and looking for new jobs. Money rubbish when you work out your hourly rate as your expected to work a ridiculous amount of hours.was sold the dream but in reality it was a nightmare!!
