Drivers Mate (Former Employee) – Magna Park – 5 October 2017
Employed as a driver's mate. Typical day would involve coming in anywhere between 4:30am-6:00am and "finishing when the job was done". 12-15 hour days were common if you were out with an agency driver (who got paid hourly so wanted to stay out as long as possible).
During my time there management were unhelpful, unsupportive and knowone seemed to have any idea what was going on. Some days you would wait for 3 hours (due to runs not being ready) and then have to do a full day's work.
Overtime was non existent.
Staff moral and attitude was always frustrating.
Health and safety neglected.
It took leaving this place to realise how it feels to be a valued employee.
Nothing, avoid at all costs
Long hours, poor management, poor planning, health and safety neglected
