Worse than Hermes. Dangerous drivers welcome.
Fast Track Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 19 June 2018
Fast Track delivery was a good job once, however recent management changes and pure greed at HQ now mean that you have to drive at warp speed to achieve all your drops and many customer deliveries are now being failed, particularly on an an evening when you simply run out of time. Driver safety has completely gone out of the window and senior management within fast track care more about damage to vans than people.
You are expected to deliver ridiculous weight and multi part flat pack items to top floor flats and you get 2 minutes to do It regardless of item or address.
Additionally, the routing software has now been tweaked so that there is no regard for time of day, traffic, delays, lights or islands... it’s as the crow flies so be prepared to try and get across Manchester at rush hour in 7 minutes.
The hardware they give you is out of the ark and the software falls over a dozen times a day... but according to head office, this is not a problem and shouldn’t delay you.
Seriously, stay well clear. Until they sack the current idiots running this division, this is a dangerous and frustrating job
Non I can think of.. staff discount is 10% but you can get that from a voucher
Badly qualified. Clueless but greedy leadership, Tools are ancient or non existent, Dangerous practices to hit deliveries
