Work your butt off with no thanks

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Make your minimum amount for the pay period, then sit idle on the side of the road - or worse get stranded 50km+ from home and sit around waiting to be told you can head home at 4:40pm.Doesn't value hard workers - they'll ask favors when they need them, but bugger you for helping them out.

Courier work can be challenging

I worked at the Brisbane branch as well the Sydney branch and I found the Sydney branch easier to work with. They listened and helped the courier to get to their weekly earning and yes there is a level you reach and the work slows to allow other drivers to earn. Work is challenging with a capital C.

Pros

Work your own vehicle

Cons

To earn you must work long hours.

Don’t expect any pay rise.

In last 5 years cost of living has gone up a lot, but there is no pay rise in the company in 5 years, still receive the same daily pay which I was contracted on.You will have days at work when you work for free, sometimes you are covering work from your own pocket.

Pros

No benefits

Cons

Long hours

Best courier company i have worked for.

I have been working as a Adhoc contract motorcycle courier for over 10 years after having my 2nd child i figured it was a good time for a change and to get off the bikes and not having the right work vehicle Jet Couriers helped me with company hire of a ute they take care of all my servicing tires any sort of problem with the vehicle also you get a fuel allowance and toll allowance. I think the pay is fair compared to other companies i have worked for in the past. And the dispatchers at Jet are all ex drivers that know what there doing. If your a experienced courier that knows what your doing you will not have a problem making money with Jet.

Pros

Company Car Packages Available. Great people to work with.

Cons

Long Hours

Don't work here

Wouldn't bother working here to much hassle not enough money. They say you'll get at least $200 a day but, you have to take tax and super out of that, as well as pay for all your own fuel which cost a couple hundred a week some times more! plus maintenance on your Van/ute.

Pros

n/a

Cons

long hours, no breaks, not ideal for young or eager worker.

Amazing team in office, extremely supportive. Every day their patience with drivers and guidance made each day easier, providing couriers space to be safe and efficient during day

Jet Couriers

This is possibly the worst company to ever work for they exploit their workers shamelessly. They have no regard for safety. They require drivers to regularly carry dangerous goods with no training in place. Lifting heavy objects with no regard for WHS laws. They are disgusting and pitiful to work for.

different

A typical day at work consist of putting up with some of the most annoying and stuck up and arrogant ignorant people that could possibly drive cars and take breath from this earth.. putting it bluntly Queenslanders are some of the most crappest drivers in the world.

Not the best

I am fortunate to have a permanent run at 38 hrs per week which is better than ad-hoc work. The pay rate is not good though which means a work a lot of hours for little remuneration.

Pros

Permanent 38 hrs per week

Cons

Terrible wages
