Delivery Driver in Melbourne VIC
on 4 December 2021
Good company

Staff are very friendly and Approachable. I found the company was helpful if l had a problem. I found that the hygiene of the vehicles was a bit undesirable I think people when leaving a vehicle should clean it when they finish the shift

I was employed because they needed my skills once they weren't required anymore neither was I

Would NOT work for King's ever again even if they doubled or tripled the pay, A few of the people I work with were nice the majority of the people I wouldn't give the time of day, when you are no longer required they try to move you to a different department but when you want to talk to a manager about it they are hard to find,even had one spot me coming and take Off in the other direction

Sinking Ship

Stay away from Kings Transport, across all States. The business has been going through 10 years of poor executive management, which has unfortunately flowed down to all levels within the business. A complete disregard to what happens on the front line, coupled with the Executive Teams strategy to win work at all costs has destroyed the culture. The business will sign to a long-term contract losing money, and expect Operations to deliver, which usually ends up with Driver Pays being cut and more responsibilities put on Site Staff and Customer Service with no pay increases. Sales staff are encouraged and paid incentives, regardless of how the contract performs, but the moment you don't have a new contract to sign up, you will be let go. Drivers are seen as disposable, with immense pressure put on Personnel teams to 'overpromise' on potential weekly pays to drivers, resulting in high turnover. The drivers recruited typically are the rejects of other transport companies, who have had previous Driving or Safety issues. The Pay Rate Mechanism is complicated, leaving drivers confused on what is actually owed to them and what is considered a 'cost of business'. They have recently made $2 million worth of redundancies, practically shutting down operations in Sydney, Queensland, South and Western Australia, asking staff in Victoria to take on all other states, for NO additional pay. Favouritism plays a big part of who gets promoted at Kings. Inside Tip: Go to your Managers casual footy games and cheer him on, the only proven way to get a pay increase at Kings Transport! Although they preach Work Life Balance and Mental Health by putting all the signs up internally, when staff approach them, they are told 'You should be happy to have a job' and 'You just need to be more positive' and only when a safety incident threatens to have severe financial repercussions will someone get involved to resolve. Its a 'Tick a Box' culture from HR and Safety. I encourage anyone looking for a job in Transport to stay away from Kings, find yourself another company who will support your development and fosters a team environment to overcome obstacles. If you're a driver, you can find numerous other employers willing to pay you more per KM/Hour that will actually value you for your experience and insight and will ensure you are supported and safe each and every day.

Flexibility, balance, pay

Relaxed & easy going work without any time constraints, staff are always helpful, very flexible with work, you get paid weekly & not fortnightly, they look after you with good wages

Dont even bother unless you are a fit retirree with a huge super payout to pay your vehicle expenses cause Kings wont be paying them!!

A typical day at work- Run you into the ground without a care in the world. What I have learnt- Go on the dole it pays better! You provide your vehicle for free and get paid only for your work. Travel long distances for less pay than the fuel costs. Sham contracting at it worse. Need a Californian law AB5 in Australia!! Eg.Thirsty Camel deliveries pay 5 bucks for travelling 20kms. Travel 250-300kms for 150 bucks a day.

Management-If you play the game you can become a trusty and you will get more well paid jobs. Secret is to dont complain and dont explain! Workplace Culture-Just keep your head down do the underpaid jobs without complaining and you will gradually build up a reputation as a company man or as we say a Kingsman!!(see the movie its heeps good)
