Good pay, bad managment. Avarge job.
Mangers do not realy care in most cases, may be one or two of them could be rate 5 star. One of the manager I have worked with, was on his phone litsening music, and asked about anything, looked so unhappy to be disturbed, on to You. Other one was a bit helpfull but when he thought he finished his part, switched on his tablet to watch movis.

Not professional!!!!!!!!


Other being on top of us

us, has no clue how to plan, not even bother to look on booking time, made most of his routes already late, unable to correct. Putting driver starting 19.00 job which should start 16.00. Unprofessional... I could say mutch more but in the end nothing will vhange, as noone care .!!!!

Worst job I’ve ever had
Good for new pass class 1 drivers for a few months experience. Your worked to the limit every day and your just another disposable number. Planners are an absolute joke and you can expect to be told your sleeping out when you run out of working time when you have no night out gear. If you hate your family and don’t want to see them again this is the job for you
Pros
New pass experience
Cons
Everything else

Planners
Management we’re pretty good to be fair but all the problems are the usual planners ! Just bossy kids with little idea , rude and very arrogant . Pressure to use as much POA as you can and an expected 80 hr week !

Good for newly passed drivers after experience
They do take on newly passed drivers which is good, but be prepared to work your maximum hours every week! Forget having a work/life balance whilst working here. I would recommend staying 6-12 months tops! Get some experience, then leave ASAP!

Don’t
Your a number not a person.

If the computer says so then it must be true ! They just don’t want to listen to the driver.

The idiots will try and take your hard earned money off job at every chance !
Pros
None
Cons
Idiot managers

Avoid working for this company
Although they perceive themselves as the best of the best, they are far from it.
Arrogant management is their downfall. More interested in making money than looking after their staff. Complete lack of trust in anyone working there.

Pretty sad to say for such a company !

Easy work but poor leaders
The work you do is very easy nothing to bad, the planners expect miracles from you at times and don’t care about anything other than getting the work done. Management talk to you like dirt and show no respect just feel like a number, but if you get on with the work without causing a fuss it’s not to bad.
Pros
Meal allowances, easy work
Cons
Poor management and planners

Stay away
Eddie stobart don't recognize time served experienced drivers they just want minions, steering wheel attendants. Maximum hours 13s and 15s all the time, no home life, may as well be single and go tramping.
