Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 27 February 2019
hardworking people but management disorganized. it seems like everyone is working for themselves not as a team to move the business forward. the management is oblivion to the plight of the staff. a lot of business potential but could be managed better.

Where do you start with Allied ? Appalling rates to subbies $4 for pallets $5 home delivery which you’re doing at 7.30 at night liquor deliveries at night the list goes on.This company wants everything and will quote ridiculous prices to get customers.Permanent runs which you get paid $12.50 an hour !! Then when something goes wrong management tell subbies that you’re going to lose $200 a week from you to cover managements stuff ups.The Department of fair trading MUST be involved in the courier industries workings.You’ll notice Allied advertise every day looking for drivers,guess why ? The turnover is so high you might get 1 in 10 that stay on the rest leave dissolusioned by the experience.There is nothing good about Allied and it all starts from the top,the McDowells you have destroyed this business for your own greed,job well done.
Warehouse Store person (Former Employee) – Rocklea QLD – 14 October 2018
The work level was excellent. I learnt some new forklift skills loading and unloading trucks. The management was not so great. The culture in the workplace was mixed evenly. The hardest part of the job was working with brainless disrespectful people. The most enjoyable part of the job the pay rate and the quality.
Very stressful every day. Huge nepotism/ favouritism many unlawful dismissals bullying intimidation tactics. Lots of tears and not just the girls
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Bankstown NSW – 9 September 2018
Incompetence promoted. Efficiency demoted. All depends on who you are and what your surname is and how good looking you are. No consistency. Many peer staff members are rude abusive and basically awful to fellow staff. Not allowed out of your chair. Unable to use bathroom unless no one else is out of chair and in there. ( it made 13 years of Catholic girls school run by nuns a walk in the park in comparison. Poorly rostered.
A typical day at work was one spent in fear of being yelled at by the CEO or his daughter. Sick days were frowned upon. If you called in sick you better be in hospital. They send people to your house to check. This was the worse place I ever worked. If you are considering a job here don't do it.
I worked there for one month. All staffs and worker are rude.They have no work ethics, especially the allocators are bully. Especially couple of them are Indian back ground and one Asian. LG warehouse supervisor is an another Rude person. I don't recommend any one to work there.
No pros at all
Bullie staff, rude allocator, rude all supervisors

Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) – South Oakeligh – 26 July 2017
For a typical day at the office started with an early day reporting to the work station was a high expectation of concentration and boredom, as you were not free to get up and stretch and it made you fall asleep on the chair waiting for calls. I learned to engage with clients and perform well for the advancement of the company. The management was not as supportive as I expected but the work was straight forward with rules to follow. The hardest part about the job is during the busy times when all the phones are flashing and the client is in a rush with multiple deliveries to submit. The most enjoyable times was when the computers were down everybody deserved pizza for writing them down.
pizza's when the computer troubleshoots
could not leave the seats or take lunch with close friends
Courier (Current Employee) – Port Melbourne VIC 3207 – 28 April 2017
Early morning posts of daily jobs processes I have learned the use of PDA Management system does not really help new drivers I find the workplace a bit untidy for a transport company The hardest part of the job is to finish everything they throw at you. The most enjoyable part of the job is going around Melbourne and suburbs.
a typical day would be travelling to the pick and dropping off the goods. I learned about how to give good customer service and how to tie load restraints. I learned to improve my time management, workplace and culture. The hardest part of the job was finding the pick up and drop destinations. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid daily and having a stable job.
