Its a Fast paced and stressful enviroment especially when dealing with pick ups and drop offs

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was abit challenging at the start especially when dealing with deliveries in order dispatchers are so rude to the drivers when they make mistakes with deliveries the pay isnt great unless you are working in a enviroment like ch2 or arundel delivering car parts but even they are strict and rude to drivers where you are getting paid hourly rate rather than per delivery rate and you get no breaks to stop and get fresh air or even have your lunch

Looting subcontractor

They trap you with sweet talks,once you trapped you can't do any thing, they will offer you minimum wages guarantee which you think 38 hrs ,that's the big trap ,50 hrs is minimum for them ,still you will find missing payments, every week you have to ring them about missing payments, eventually you will get tired and leave, they will lure new subcontractor and company keep going




Long hours, every single week ending up with wages theft

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.

Brown nosing a must

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.


Work independently


Your a number nothing more

Busy run

Good large company to work for but too many drivers and this was cutting into my daily cost with not much work at times to cover your expenses. Liked being on the road and meeting new people
