A few title's (Former Employee) – Middleton, Greater Manchester – 16 June 2018
I recently left Yodel (Middleton SVC) after 5 years and for a company formed in 2012 rather than the company getting better its getting worse, surely designed to lose money. Yodel employs anyone their standards are incredibly low so there is a constant turn over due to staff being sacked for stealing, failing random drugs tests, having your hours cut so you then do your contracted hours that you cant live on as they are rubbish contracts that vary from 4/5 hours a day or just leaving like myself because you know you better than the place. The reason for the low standard in regards of staff is because the budget is ridiculously low so your expected to do so much more than your job. The money is rubbish, like i said for what you do and the pressure and stress of having to work 6 days a week even though you are contracted to 5 days and the pressure from the hirachy asking you to do fraudulent things or to turn a blind eye. You only get recognition from the managers up untill the ops manager, as the manager's upwards are ham shankers who are way out of their depths and cluless idiots who only gets involved in employing new managers and then gets them decisions massively wrong and all of the decent staff leaves because of it! Dont bother applying unless you have no standards whats so ever if you have just come out of prison or get GCSE's equivalent of Gs then crack on.
All the people employed before 2015 after that they are rubbish.
So badly run, hours are ridiculous starting at 4 in the morning and not finishing until 9 at night. Never getting paid the right amount monthly and having to get a tax rebait every single time. Just a hassle. Don’t care about there staff. Not understanding about hours. Just very poorly managed.
If you want to manage your own hours then it's not too bad
Delivery Driver Multi Drop (Former Employee) – Telford, Shropshire – 16 June 2018
A typical day would consist of waiting for a delivery driver to drop off the parcels at my home address and then once these have been scanned I could start delivering the parcels. There were occasions when the delivery driver didn't drop the parcels to me at the time specified which meant being behind schedule from the start.

HDN (Former Employee) – Bellshill, North Lanarkshire – 8 May 2018
It really isn't worth it people. By time you deduct fuel costs it's well below minimum wage & that's not counting things like road tax. U get penalised if customer isn't in which isn't your fault. Amazon Flex is much better!
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Northampton, Northamptonshire – 4 May 2018

Warehouse operative (Former Employee) – Oldham, Greater Manchester – 26 April 2018
Good environment to work in, very busy warehouse with a lot of customer needs. Busy throughout the year not just seasonal. 5-1 shift was difficult to get home so had to get a taxi most nights because if we completed work early we would go home early. E would finish between 11:30 and 1
Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull – 26 April 2018
If you are a courier using your own car as a self employed person, It actually costs to work here, you can't even make min wage by the time you have paid fuel, business Insurence, public liability insurence, petrol, damaging your own car. Your expected to work 6 days a week, theirs no guarantee on how many parcels you will get it varies between 9 and 50 a day, your paid 60p a parcel and are expected to attempt to deliver the parcels 3 times, if your unsuccessful you don't get paid for it despite trying 3 times, your also expected to knock on 5 neighbours doors each time to deliver it before leaving in a safe place. You also need a second phone or phone number for customers to contact you, (yodel do not provide this) you can just give out your personal number should you wish to, customers will ring you ANY time, your expected to call your customers back at your expense. Public liability insurence costs 2.50 a week through yodel. By the time I'd finished paying out with yodel I made no money. And it cost me. Their will employ anyone as there are desperate. You don't get holiday pay.
