Health & safety disaster waiting to happen. Driving regulations ignored, vehicles driven dangerously, loaded unsafely. 14 hour days no breaks, humping heavy items with no equipment. If all this sounds like fun then this is the job for you.

Best to look at Agency placement to get best financial reward as Agency drivers are paid by the hour whereas salaried drivers are not entitled to overtime, not unusual to do 13/15 hour days? Very enjoyable but heavy work. Enjoyed both the driving, nationwide as well as central London. Only reason for not continuing was due to demands of Kinship Care call on time.

Transport office in this place don't have a clue, drivers have no back up from them even when (regularly) placed in positions of danger due to irate customers losing the plot. Have to get the vehicles repaired in your own time, often have to work in excess of 14 hours per day, vehicles are old and decrepit, at least 3 break down every day. Driving rota is never fairly done with the same five or six guys never doing sofas and always finished before 3 o'clock while the rest of us have to work until at least 7 o'clock every night after starting at 6 am. No training whatsoever just chucked a set of keys and told to get on with it. Guy who hands out keys in the morning is so incredibly rude I'm surprised he's not had his nose broken or worse, but his day will come. Don't ever go off sick or take holidays because you'll pay for it when you get back. And if you try and raise any points or try to get the company's grievance procedure put in place you get the universal answer " just get it f@#%ing done". Save yourself and go on the dole you'll have more pride in yourself than working for this shower.

Terrible place to work just because of the office staff, they don't care what u have to do, what laws u have to break etc,as long as u get the deliveries out. And if they dont like u then life will be terrible working long hours and crazy shifts and still getting paid the same as the blue eyed boys that do half as much and don't ever take a holiday or a day off cause when u come back they'll make u pay for it. I could rant all day about them and anybody who has worked there will tell u the exact same.
Pros
finishing time

6am start most days not in before 6pm any day.
Not paid for hours worked. 12 drops plus per day and driving long distance most days without second driver.

Then complete drops. Only 2 man team .no worth the hassle. Not always paid driver bonus . No in house training given . Just forms to sign . Get your keys and go. NOT GOOD LOOK ELSE WHERE.

the Ayr depot is badly run very high turnover of staff down to the poor management. They say that they provide training well that's a lie it's a case of sign here that's you trained.also the product is poor also which you'll see when you go to customers doors when they are on there third or fourth attempt of getting what they ordered in good condition. The transport manager ran his own local business into the ground and he's not any better running too!!
Pros
Some good guys work there
Cons
Bad transport management ran by a dinosaur!!

Long hours, Back breaking work, Double manning to get round driving hours, however most of the time the drivers mate either hasn't got a licence or doesn't have the right licence. Management couldn't care less about you as long as the beds are delivered. Complete joke that you have to use your own time to get the tyres changed on their fleet. Encouraged to put tachograph on break whilst building beds and often put extra drops within YOUR alloted breaks. When issues are raised, the answer is always the same... If you don't like it, leave. Much, much more could be said. Can't wait to leave.
Pros
Monday to Friday
Cons
so many
