Worked for the jesmond depot. Poor management structure. Nobody seems to know what’s going on or how to manage staff. Depot manager is a bully, rings you and pesters you back off the sick before you’re ready. Long hours, poor pay! Rotas are unrealistic so you’re always late for breaks and forced to cut your breaks down as they won’t cover. Pushing drivers hours to the breaking point constantly. Won’t respond to complaints or grievances. Old staff get paid nearly x3 compared to new drivers so new drivers don’t get a rota or ‘line’, have to do the long days and unwanted shifts/routes and don’t move up unless your in the click.
