Forget it
Night Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  West Drayton, Greater London19 September 2019
Regularly send you out in overloaded vans limited to 64mph.
Vans are constantly coming up with issues e.g. engine management light, sluggish behaviour on the motorway.
Generally unsociable place too work.
Long days depending on route but generally following route plan your doing at least ten hours unless your in with management.

Some management are Ok but very very few.

Long hours bad pay
Driver (Current Employee) –  Haydock2 September 2019
If you like working 14 hour days then this is the job for you, at the interview you will be told that it's job and finish so if you only work 7 hours you will still get paid a minimum of 9 hours. This is rubbishy my shortest day was 11 hours and there is no overtime rate, you only get 2 bank holidays a year off ( Christmas Day & New Year's Day) and these are taken out of your holiday entitlement.

Good pay for 3.5 t van driver
Night Driver (Current Employee) –  West Drayton14 April 2019
Decent job that suits people willing to work with a fair enough suport from supervisors, clerks and sometimes managers , management is ok, is kinda stressful for them them as they need to handle lots of grumpy drivers 😁, support is ofer as long as you ask for it nicely and don’t assume that everyone is there to babysit you. To note that every route differs ,so you will not have same hours on different route , usually they don’t change route offten but depend on the number of drivers available.
Pros
Good pay, peace during work, quite friendly, free sandwiches, cheap coffe, nice clerks 👌👌👌
Cons
Will help if they will update the instructions on invoices

Quality Controller (Current Employee) –  Southall, Greater London2 April 2019
Friendly environment to work. Work as a team. No fixed timing for work. Sometimes stressful due to lack of staff. Poor management and very poor communication skills.

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London7 January 2019
Worst job ever, don’t even think about applying!!!
Rude staff, poor management with very poor English.
The pay is a joke, £8.13 p/h to run around the warehouse easily doing 15 miles a shift.
Staff running around hitting you with trolleys, also felt like the odd one out as they all talk in their native language which is not English. Sunday’s are the worst start at 12pm and finish god knows, they don’t care probably 3 or 4 am in the morning.
Job is easy but very tiring.

Lazy and racist management
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Tamworth, Staffordshire22 November 2018
I work for Adelie through an Agency called Corr Recruitment. I'm always on standby and called in whenever needed. At times I won't work for a week. Management have favouritised their choice of drivers, the rest of us are worthless. Shifts are mad long due to lack of poor management.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons

Could be a great place to work...
HGV 1 Driver (Current Employee) –  West Drayton17 November 2018
The main problem with this company is that it has unqualified people doing jobs that require various knowledge. Managers, supervisors, they all should have knowledge of their area of responsibility, but not here.
Pros
New vehicles

Worst experience ever - avoid!
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London17 October 2018
Adelie foods is the worst company I have ever worked for. All the management are backstabbers, bullies, talk about each other to work colleagues & other management, have problems internally with the way they manage, treat unfairly and they really do not give a care about you as an individual. The way you are treated there is you lose yourself as a person and when you want support or help, you got to fight for yourself. Workload is way too much for what you are getting paid and quite frankly reading all the other comments, I am glad that I'm not the only one who has felt this way.
Pros
Horrible sandwiches
Cons
Some colleagues were approachable and nice.
