So hard and stressful
Class 2 Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Egham, Surrey4 October 2019
This job is so hard and fast paced I ended up in hospital for exhaustion never taking breaks having a pet the lorry on break while you're doing other work really really long days and when you work out your hourly rate you'll be on less than minimum wage

Class 2 HGV Driver (Current Employee) –  Harlow11 November 2019
Absolute shambles of a company management couldn’t run a bath let alone a fleet, I was so tired from late days (5am start back at the depot 8:30pm 3 nights in a row) I fell asleep at the wheel driving in to work after telling a manager I was told to go slow and cearful. planners do anything to stitch you up on your route to make your day harder and their day easier, was promised no more than 14 drops and 700 units all in cages swiftly realised that this was a lie and turned into 20 drops and 1000 units. Always promised help and never arrives, ridiculed if you bring drops back you are paid no where near enough for how much stress this job will put you through forget family time forget a social life not gonna happen you have to work bank holidays and over Christmas and can’t book it off either in my eyes place should be shut down
