Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Courier Driver in Direct Couriers

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

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

Pros

No comment

Cons

Long hours bad pay

Beware.

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.

Pros

Nice uniforms. Out on the road.

Cons

Low pay for the most part. Expected to drive long hours.
