Good place to work from a drivers point of view. Mechanics and workshop on site for quick defects resolve. Staff helpful and friendly. Only criticism is that the overall site manager was not very personable.

a very poor company to work for they Favourites employees always give broken promises basically there a all for one company the pay may seem okay but you have to work work work to feel like you have achieved anything you get no thankyou the managers from all departments are stuck up and only think about them selfs the guy that runs the site will get rid of you just for looking at him funny (no joke its happend) if you dont pick the job up within a week well i wish you luck because they will make it harder for you to learn
Pros

Work for them for along time as not much work where I live so was stuck there, very stressful company, informing you that always someone willing to take your job, just a number, not well organised, unappreciated.

It is my own personal opinion and it will remain that way. I would suggest that you plant somebody in thi company to gain information for you.

Sadly, this company no longer exists.


Very sad.
Pros
Got paid
Cons
Went bust

A typical day would be, start work at 6am, check the Vehicle over to make sure it is roadworthy and full with fuel, water, screen wash and oil, also make sure my load is secure and strapped down.

The other drivers I work with are very helpful and we all help each other out when needed.


I have learnt more about the areas I cover and also a lot better with my tachograph rules.


Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and being out delivering and going to new places
Pros
out on the road

Immingham depot has a good management team and, unlike general haulage, are not constantly chasing you up. Good set of lads that work there. Only downside is it is seasonal and through an agency, but pay rate is pretty good.
