I left because I did not have a finish time. I also worked 6 and a half hours and had no break.
Although you will be told you’ll get the hours you ask for, in my case 16, they don’t tell you when you start that it’s a 0 hour contract basis so some weeks I’d literally do 6 and also have to pay my bus fair so on minimum wage it really wasn’t worth it. For a minimum wage job it was not hard work and there was plenty of time to stand around and talk to the drivers and make friends with the other in stores, but when you’re on shift with a bad manager til 12 ish it’s just not worth it.
Erratic hours. Favourite drivers can pick and chose their hours and everyone else has to fit in. You could have 4 or more hours one night if the 'special ones' are off that night and be sent home after an hour the next because they can stay until the end. Pay and tips just not enough to make this worthwhile in the long term.
Fuel money WILL NOT cover your fuel. YOU will end up subsidising it out of your wages/tips.
Expected to drive 18 miles for 90p
If you’re on the “late” shift rather than “rush” or “til close” then you could be asked(told) to leave at seven if it’s quiet. On the flip side if it’s busy you may end up staying til 10. You just never know!
Don’t get fed unless you’ve done a six hours plus shift. I was doing four to five hours six days a week so never got any food.
Managers will clock you out to deliveries before they’re even outta the oven in order to try to make their bonus. The consequence for the drivers is the customer will think you’ve taken 20 minutes to do a five minute journey, the result is very few tips...
I left for about a month temporarily, just to make a point. Dreadfully understaffed manager-wise, having only three managers at a £20,000/week store, one of which could and would only open. This opener would repeatedly just not turn up to her shift (meaning the store would not be open to customers), meaning I or my boyfriend (the other manager) would have to go in on our days off or do doubles or go from close to open.
The area manager said he had it in hand and would deal with it, whilst making sure to constantly slate her with names - which by all means were true, but still not very professional - and even by the time she resigned never got resolved.
So they were left with 0 managers and it was the most satisfying, smug feeling I've ever felt in my life!
Same as previous guys post . Worked 6 years. (5 years SkGroup) loved my job as head driver, training staff and working in other stores they had. Then part timer of few years was bullying and harassing me got put on final warning by a manager (who eventually left) and the bullying started and I put up with it and managers knew all about it they did nothing. I got too Poorly to stay had to leave for my own health. Since then Life’s been awefull. Financially struggling, selling items in House for food or electric, my children have got a life they are not used to where we can’t take them nowhere if they need things for school or college I have to wait and save . My job at minute is miles away from home and I’ve applied for work at dominos with other franchises in my area and for some reason they will not even take me on and they wouldn’t say why. And I’m most experience driver . Pizza Hut express may be better
When in car alright.When in store bullying by staff. Whilst they stand around doing nothing. Mangers week
I was riding the moped when a road user stopped beside me at traffic light giving me verbal abuse, swearing at me, saying I pulled out in front of her which wasn't correct., she turned out to be the bosses sister in law.,
Spoken to like rubbish for stopping for toilet breaks or a drink of water,
Power tripping managers, don't know what respect is, no manners
Had my tips stolen,
Staff turnover is unbelievable, they are never not hiring,
Nothing is good enough for these managers, you put the work in they make out you've done nothing, very manipulative, enjoy telling lies,
Worst job I’ve ever had. They over work you and expect you to be available for them 24/7 otherwise they’ll fire you. I couldn’t work Christmas Eve this year and so they gave me no hours for two weeks (after I told them this) so I quit. Management is terrible, no respect for employees and the hours are horrendous.
