A very political company and staff. Job gets repetitive and there are no opportunities to progress upwards. You have to work 5/10 years before you are promoted to a senior level. Hardest part of the job is knowing that your skill set means very little over maintaining relationships with other people.
Hard job and the shift flies by, however they push more and more until you get injured then unpaid. Massive bullying culture from management to supervisor level. Agency staff work 3 months then get fobbed off when their pay should go up, awful as they are trained and work hard. Every week hours stolen from your pay. Lucky if you get a break but deducted from your paypregardless.
I’m a very experienced multidrop driver, the more you deliver the more you earn.
Great company to work for and looked after.
A lot of new drivers struggle to pick it up and then blame the company for the fact they cannot do the job.
Lots of rewards to be had, amazing award which I have two of. Bonuses for hitting etas.
The job is what you make of it.
Once out of depo life was good but management was poor but overall was a really good business opportunity to have it was a good few years of my life but had to leave due to family issues which thankfully got ressolvedthankfully
DPD it self is money making company the do not care about there workforce ,Disgusting Behaviour.
When you leave instead of giving you deposit they make some expensive van repair without your consent and send you invoice worth thousands.
One reason this company is always recruiting driver's. NO RESPECT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL. Line management with no people skills. If VOSA visited this place they would have a field day , driver's hours what a joke
As a driver you start off with a light round normally, then after a week you get shafted. If you like phone calls all day while you drive and getting treated like a dog this is the company for you thats if you are a employee because if you are franchise it is even worse and you get charged for taking 1 day off for vehicle repairs....
i am glad i left and never order stuff online if they are using DPD this company deserves to fail
Rude workers, payed too little, they took money out my wages twice. When u would get a call u, they would ask for you to work for 12 hours, then when you do, u end up working another 5 hours. U dont get extra pay for overtime.
driver (Former Employee) - franchisee - 3 May 2020
great money but always had depot pushing , but recieved little or no help in getting out of depot , was told in interview that would recieve help so could get out and get delivering but always ended up out late
struggle to get out of depot in morning for timed deliveries
Working 15 HR a day some days and not being paid properly .. promised the earth and just ended up in 7-9000 pound in debt working every hour god sent . I had a bad experience there and wouldn't recommend working for them to anyone
The line supervisors and managers only care about numbers. You are just another number to for their liking. Never give you credit but also discredit. Got sent home when work was low maybe cause of my skin colour cause they would never send home someone within their own racial category. It just open a door for discrimination. Very upsetting within this modern era
I worked in the warehouse and busted my back to achieve their daily goals only to have my hours cut and then completely lost with no explanation as to why . I was working through an agency who didn't have any communication skills either. Your just a number and easily replaceable . Dont work for them if you value your sanity or have Bill's to pay
