Good Driving Job
Written by HGV Driver (Current Employee) from Fordham, newmarket on 18 May 2018
Easy job for a driver. You won’t work anymore than 60 hours a week and you will get time off to ensure your contracted hours are maintained (48 per week).

You will be expected to do the occasional sixth shift (generally 6 per year). And you will be expected to work Bank holidays.

Extra pay for weekends and bank holidays.

Expect to start - more ... anytime from 0400 on the day shift. There is no pattern to your start times though so be prepared to have the worst work/life balance. (Like every driving job)

The fleet is modern and generally well kept. It can take a while for faults to b ... - less
ProsGood Salary, Clean work
ConsLong hours, Negative Attitudes Among Drivers
