Shift Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Banbridge – 12 March 2018
Often worked 12 hour shift with little to no brakes. Fast paced and constant learning but management was constantly watching cameras from the minute they left. Minimum wage for working ridiuculous shifts, often in the small hours of the night.
CSR (Current Employee) – Northampton – 12 March 2018
Although it isn’t the best, I enjoy working there as it isn’t too serious; we can have a laugh. However, that can be annoying at times as not everyone does what they should and just lounges around but then if it’s busy, why wouldn’t they?
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Grimsby – 4 March 2018
Worked for 6 months as a Domino's delivery driver. Mileage allowance is poor - 80p per delivery no matter where you go, often journeys were a 14 mile round trip so some nights you ended up spending more on fuel than you earned back in fuel allowance. Not to mention the wear and tear on your own car.
No guarantee of hours - some nights you would turn up and have to basically beg management to not send you home after one hour.
No respect from management - would quite happily take hours from you to give to someone else despite having previously put in full-time hours and worked hard to do more for the store. I often put in extra time to help out and would then have hours taken off me later on. No consistency.
No real perks - discount doesn't work out any cheaper than ordering a regular deal as you can't take discount on any offers, only on full price products. And no, you don't get freebies!
Never received my proper allocated breaks. If a delivery was there I had to take it regardless. So some days (if you managed to get the hours, that is) you would end up on a long day with no break at all.
Also if someone doesn't pay you right on the door when you deliver, responsibility falls to you as the driver and you have to pay it. Obviously you check the money at the door, but if someone is threatening and refuses to pay or disputes the amount and slams the door on you, there's not a lot you can do. Makes you feel very unsupported as a driver!
Too many! Unsociable hours, poor mileage allowance, no perks, lack of respect
Bad hours and minimum pay for the amount of work required of you.
Insider (Former Employee) – Faversham, Kent – 1 March 2018
The hours are always in the evening, and usually have to stay till very late ( midnighht or so), otherwise you dont tend to get many hours. The work is fast paced and rushed, and doesnt feel like its worth doing all the work for the minimum pay you receive (only 4.05 an hour as a 17 year old!). Not much opportnuity to develop, but a decent job if you trying to earn some extra cash or if you have nothing else on board.
Free Food (even though its bad for you and gets boring) / Flexible also
Dominos worker (Former Employee) – London NW, Greater London – 26 February 2018
I didn't too much enjoy the work place but it was a very good summer job to do and good pay aswell as a lot of benefits for someone working there however some of the employees did ruin my experience but even thought it was a good learning curb.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Wigan, Greater Manchester – 17 February 2018
I joined my local dominos team as a second job, to earn some extra money. I was one of the delivery drivers, which is often see as the lower end of the food chair in stores.
Although advertised as “up to £10 a hour” this is not true. You earn minimum wage, and the get £1 for every deliver you do. This should cover the cost of fuel, but only just. You then also get tips, however this isn’t much, maybe £4 a night?
One of the big questions I had when starting was the mileage it puts on my car, and nobody could really answer. I worked at a dominos in a larger town, and on average did about 10 runs a night, each run was roughly 2.5 miles away (and 2.5 back)... so you are looking at approx 50 miles a night.
The rotas are done weekly, and are all over the place in terms of consistency, so it’s difficult to plan anything too far in advance.
Team Member - Full Time (Former Employee) – Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent – 16 February 2018
It was a very friendly working environment. I enjoyed my time there but wanted more money. I wasn’t earning enough for the hours I was doing. I would push myself to the limit and try to push my hours up everything to earn a good monthly salary but it wasn’t enough. I feel like dominos pizza wasn’t for me.
Driver (Former Employee) – West Sussex – 6 February 2018
Worked as a driver, nice enough people but as with any big company you’re nothing more that numbers on a screen to them so don’t expect a lot of respect from higher up hence the high staff turnover. Long hours and expected to stay until late. Feel sorry for the managers as they don’t get a day off and have a lot of pressure put on them and get given zero respect from area manager etc. I worked days so saw a lot of what went on with regards to treatment of employees by people higher up than the managers who worked in store so have zero respect for dominos as a company now. Fun job to do if you’re a student and you get good money as a driver.
Instore Team Member (Current Employee) – Lincoln – 30 January 2018
The work can be difficult at times especially during the rush and when your first starting at the Job . Your co workers can really make or break your experience here. Usually short shifts especially as an in-store but can be longer days shifts . Management in my experience usually okay but has been faults . Good flexibility for hours and good at taking into consideration any prior commitments . Hours unpredictable could be anywhere from 10-30 hours
Free Pizza, Good co workers, Ability to progress, easy work
Well, how can I start : Did start working for Dominos as a part time job and went full time after a few months. That was a few years ago when I didn't knew how the company operates. Who are you working for is a franchise who doesn't care about any of their employees ....for example: * they hire all the idiots in the world and want the older guys to compensate for them by working harder. * they money they pay for fuel don't cover real wear and tear unless you have a ford ka. * they don't pay the right amount of tax to HMRC by declaring your income less (different records on p45 from them as HMRC not only for me). * the holiday policy is ridiculos with days left cancelled at the end of the year with no pay and without any posibility of taking them (you might apply in october but be told all year is booked, or you can book and get cancelled without notice). * different favoritism culture with asian staff due to asian managers not only in the shop I worked in. * hours worked my be missing often from your payslip, witch was a regular thing latelly with more than half the staff , as you have no access to your working time and this can be adjusted by any manager at any given time. * expected to have your car clean and road-worthy but tolerating other ones that looked like they carried pigs as a regular job.
Free or half price food, had a few nice guys working there, tips (but way less than the managers think you are doing----maybe around 3£/day), some quiet times with nothing to do.
Antisocial hours payed with the minimum wage, third world country working culture, messing with your working hours and holidays, 0 hours contract even for full time staff.
