Fast Paced
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.

Only paid for hours working. Not for getting to work or going through security. Also they are selective on who works, not first come. Also if you get
There for 4pm starting at 5, you might not get in but have to wait for next shift which is not paid for. My advice, avoid like it's the Corona Virus! Slave labour and unfair pay.

Avoid at all costs
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.

Decent place to work
Growth minded, dedicated employees, well-being focused. It is a company that walks the talk in regards to work life balance and focuses on a healthy workforce both mentally and physically.

Excellent company
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.

Very poor management
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

Productive workplace
Working here was pressured, especially near holidays, but some managers were supportive about all of it. Workers here were a lot of hard-working but some were careless.

Employers are rude and discrimatory
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

Fine if you want no job security
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
Pros
Banter anongst colleagues
Cons
Everything else
