This companies succes is highly dependant on naive subcontractor courier drivers ,who are told great things by the fleet manager, but in reality it will be the worst business decision u will ever make.Thats why there is always a high driver job turnover. In the beginning they will entice you with good paying jobs ,but after about 2 weeks you will be kept very busy with low paying jobs driving big kilometres per day or sent off to do hourly hire runs, expected to clear a busy set run at other transport companies for very low pay. They are also known for ripping drivers off ,for example they will give u standard job which was really an express job that pays more, but its given to u at a standard rate so u get less and they make more commission. Avoid this company at all cost.
Nice uniforms. Out on the road.
Low pay for the most part. Expected to drive long hours.
Great company to work for. All the staff and drivers are good to get on with. The pay is good for what we do, i lived out of Perth in the hills and they always found me jobs on the way to the bass and back home again The great thing is you can have a fun day at work
The only way to succeed in this company is to brown nose. Most of the money is made by 10% of the fleet. Most drivers are not happy. Management is! Long days ,little money for most ,barely minimum wage. They don’t have your back and they let you know that you are very replaceable.
Your a number nothing more
Direct Couriers is a company that fails to take Road safety seriously. Failed to check the Front Tires which were illegal at the time I commended working for them in the Truck of a friend on December 5 . Having rented a Ute from 9 October to 1 December due to being unable to obtain a loan I had to drive with illegal front Tires due to my weekly commitments . Due to the illegal front tires I ran into a stopped car on the Gateway Motorway and have not worked since February 22. All Purpose Transport took Road safety seriously and checked the Roadworthiness of its fleet on a regular basis. If Direct Couriers had done the same the front Truck tires would have been replaced by no later than the 8 December 2017

Well, i worked with Direct Couriers nearly 1 1/2, years, and i have learned different things during my job e.g how to lodge freight at airport, similarly, what types of businesses are in SA and what they are doing, how to carry freight during transit, etc. Well overall , it was a very Good experience except few things which was related to management which result in ending my contract with them and it was shocking. REASON: As i delivered the same type of freight (in same condition) from same pickup location and dropped to same customer as 1-day before and by chance next day one of the job was the same type and i did the same thing but i don't know wat happened and result was termination of my contract. STILL THINKING WHAT HAPPENED?????????
very good from income point of view
required some more good people in management
