Do not drive for this company!!
HGV Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Stafford, Staffordshire – 16 March 2018
If you`re a HGV driver, it doesn`t matter if you`re an agency driver or looking for a full time position give this company a very wide birth,,, VERY WIDE.. Although pay rates are pretty competitive believe me you will earn it, and the metaphorical whip is being constantly cracked. As any driver knows your work/life balance is always very lopsided no matter where you work, this is unfortunately is the nature of the occupation, but working for this company takes it to a different level, unless of course you are a member of the "prioritised" drivers!!!!
Those of you that know, will know exactly what that means..
As for the Transport management, the majority of them wouldn`t know the difference between a 5th wheel and a steering wheel, and this trickles down to the Transport clerks, and to be perfectly frank you`re very lucky if the language barrier isn`t a huge problem, this of course isn`t an issue if you`re one of the "prioritised" drivers.
So, therefore if you`re a HGV driver, it doesn`t matter if you`re an agency driver or looking for a full time position give this company a very wide birth, VERY WIDE!!!.
competitive pay rates.
Your tacho will take a battering.
