Stay away from Dfs longeaton
Shunter Driver/warehouse operative (Former Employee) – DFS Long Eaton – 25 January 2018
It's not worth it guys. The shuntering bit is only 1%of the job if u are lucky. You spend the rest of the shift pushing sofas into wagons at a blistering pace. Because u not used to that type of work, wont be able to keep up with the young lads u will be working with. They do it everyday ,with the right techniques they have gained over the years. Come u then ,fat driver like me ,with sausage fingers ...lol u will die. Trust me. U will be lucky to last a week in there. U gonna get it all knees,back ache,swollen finger joints and wrists. Take my word drivers ,just stick to pure driving unless if u have factory labouring experince and u enjoy it. Dfs makes a lot of money. They can afford to hire labouring staff and a dedicated shunter driver purely for those distinct roles. They just dont want to pay. They want to cover 2 roles with one wage slip. Dont be fooled guys.I can bet u a fiver,after a few days or weeks ,the job will be back on here again.Ask ur self why??? Why cant they fill the post???why are they failing to retain staff?.??
Gud friendly &humble lads to work with on loading bays.
Wage too low for the amount of work involved. Work too heavy and fast paced.
