Transline - Delivery Driver - St Helens - Zero Hour Contract
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – St Helens – 5 February 2014
Started as a delivery driver for Transline at the St Helens warehouse. I arrived to see a whiteboard brought out with a handwritten list of names, and routes. The waiting group of 20-30 people were told 'If your name is on the list you are working, if not you can wait around to see if there are any no shows or you can go home and return tomorrow'. This was the first indication that the job was on a zero hour contract. As it was my first day I was nominated an experienced driver on his route. The driver drove, and I delivered the parcels to the customers' doors. My hours for the day were 0700-2005.
Long hours, zero hour contract
