Fun job, not a career opportunity
Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Driver NT – 23 August 2017
Great job, rates aren't sufficient to survive in Australia, no advancement, work/life balance was great. The culture of the position is what made the job enjoyable, you meet different people everyday that for the most part were friendly.
Due to Civic having a fairly good system, pickup and deliveries happen in a timely manner. I had the opportunity to get paid well for certain jobs, though 'most' of the time, the rates were mediocre.
If you come from a poor country and are looking for a easy employment opportunity, then this job is for you. As for a family man trying to make a living or a career out of it, avoid this job like the plague and look into startrack.
Between these 3rd party courier companies, they all sit in an office out in Clayton, you have jet, tmcc, civic and some other ones where the sales reps compete with each other. The rates are constantly changing (affecting what the driver gets paid), you will get reps that leave 1 company to go to the next and then contact companies they signed up with their old companies to rake in commission. The industry is genuinely destroyed by these type of companies, if I was to recommend any delivery service to anyone, I would tell them to go to startrack.
