I've worked on and off for igloo for a number of years, I've always found them helpful, understanding of situations and overall good communicators, I've never had a bad experience and I'd recommend working for them to anybody. They have bailed me out of unemployment numerous times.

Worked for igloo some years ago now on a contract in Coventry. Face didn’t fit and was literally sold down the river by then without a second glance. Even after complaining to the MD nothing was done. You are just a disposable item to them and they do nothing to help you when there are problems on the contract you are working on, the only help they give is to side with the client and not believe their own candidate.

Couldn’t care a less about their drivers. If you get more than 20 hours a week, then you have had a result. You will never get the higher pay rates because you have to work more than 45 hours a week before you get it, which NEVER HAPPENS!!! The people who dish out the hours have their favourites and do not share out available hours fairly. Awful people to work for!

A busy and enjoyable workplace with a fair management team and co workers.
The hardest part is working in bad weather.

The most enjoyable part is pay day.

Learn the layout of the work place.

Worked on the Gefco contract for this agency ... They ain't bad there are worse out there.

Rates arn't too bad, although I'm a LTD company driver, my son is a HGV driver for them also but PAYE and he receives his holiday pay with no issues etc

Just don’t bother with them! Haven’t got a clue what they’re doing.
Management look after each other while the rest of the staff do all the work. Top management talk down to you all the time and belittle you in front of everyone.

If your face doesn’t fit or the bosses wife doesn’t like you you’ve got no chance.

Working for igloo at gefco corby as vehicle collection and delivery driver.
Five drivers laid off with no warning and no excuse. After nine weeks work I was paid off with no notice at all. Retired drivers who just work for a bit of extra cash were kept on while five drivers who need money are paid off.

Then offered 3 hours work on the next day.

Long hard shifts with non stop work in a poor environment. Shifts cancelled regularly and management is abysmal. Only rewarding things was hearing the noise to go home and the pay check!
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Slave Work

Worked as a driver out of the Hermes site at Nuneaton poorly organised depot but the work was ok, wages not paid into the bank one week so i phoned about it and it was sorted and paid that day only disappointed they charged me £5 of my own money to correct their mistake. I complained naturally and they never gave me anymore work. Laughable that people think they have a right to charge you to get your money quickly when it's their fault it wasn't paid in the first place.
Pros
Decent work
Cons
Payroll

Pros
admin, good pay, respect, secure, enjoying it
Cons
none

I have worked on and off for Igloo over the four years, I work for them as a HGV driver and I get regular work that pays well. Sometimes i'm asked if i can start early or do a late shift but they always give me notice. If you do the runs for them they will make sure you are used week in week out. The company i work for in Bagington has good trucks. Team that phones me lets me kow how long shift will be and where I'm going when they can. Would recommend.
Pros
work, good hours, communicate, good trucks, regular pay, good company
Cons
have to be a contractor
