Beware.....They do not pay nights out!!!
Tramper (Former Employee) –  Chepstow, Monmouthshire26 March 2018
If your tramping, They do not pay nights out if your within 25 miles of a depot. They do try and bring you back to one of the depots or as near as possible and then use that as a reason to not pay nights out. Chepstow planners will lie to your face about this. My opinion is avoid tramping for this company. There are plenty of better ones to work for close by.
Pros
None that i could see
Cons
Faults not fixed on the units

Deadline specific
Transport Planner (Former Employee) –  Dunstable6 March 2018
Within the industry that Downtons operate there are a lot of deadlines that must be met. Failure to meet these deadlines is not an option as missing on sale times loses money for both the customer and in turn the operation. Because of this the typical day at Downtons is full of action but starts very early
