Heres the true cost of working for yodel
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.
No pay it may as well be voluntary
