Most of the reviews seem to be negative. I was a driver in Aberdeen a couple of years ago. I loved the job but had to leave for personal reasons. The Manager and most of my colleagues were great. The job is what you make it. I never had any problems at all. You get paid for what you work and a bit more. Flexible hours and although zero hours I always had full time hours. Seems like the negative reviews have an axe to grind.
Full time hours
Started out working ok for 9 months Then got no help from senior management when branch mgr left. Temp staff only bothered with own branch. Contact centre sending down jobs when no vehicles available but have to fill.
Non. Discount no cheaper than rivals
Used to be a good place to work for, but the past year its went downhill rapidly with staff leaving and never being replaced. If you enjoy being used as a door mat,stressed and running around like a headless chicken in terrible working conditions for poor pay and dire shifts while others sit about drinking coffee all day too afraid to get there shoes dirty ..... then this is the job for you.
Working at thrifty was the most stressful time in my life. The company leaves you with no support from head office or no branch manager and expects you to run the place along with another CSR. Security is disgusting and I was scared to close the branch alone due to the company not providing security. No appreciation for their staff and your expected to work very hard with little in return. The company will try to find away to take the money that you have early. Management will forget to send off training documents which prolongs your probation and then you get accused of not completing training due to change of managers. By far worst company around.
If you want to work for a company that racism homophobia and sexist remarks is forgiven by HR then this is the place for you. I made reports of one person who made comments which I had proof. Yet when some drivers made stories up about me HR were quick to discipline me. Very bad company to work for. No incentive for drivers. The office staff get bonuses. The drivers have to go through s*** on a daily basis. I urge people not to apply for this company unless you want to be mugged off by yes men drivers and thrifty HR.

Do not care about there employees when they go the extra mile to get work done when they're understaffed most of the time bailing them out of a sticky situation getting no thanks for it . Working conditions are disgraceful to say the least with electrical equipment near puddles of water and staff are left them self's most shifts in cold conditions when if anything was to happen there would be no one there to help.
I worked at Thrifty for NIne years in total. Always found the right training given , great support from manager and college's. We all worked well as a team . I loved my role there. Only reason for leaving I am now a stay at home mum after having my little one. Still talk to my old college's and go in and visit the branch.
Scot Group being part of the Thrifty franchise and ofcause hiding behind the brand name of Thrifty.. Scott group always had a bad reputation and with a strategic change of name is hiding being the Thrifty brand name hoping to recapture a previously good reputation. One wonders if it will do any good at all.
lunch determined by the mindless management
new workspace. wow that makes a difference.
slow progression and face must fit to promote. no education benefits poor management in my branch
