Annoying

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Terrible rosters. Don't know if you are on day or evening shifts as its mixed and varied day to day. Could be as little as 3 days notice of your week roster.

Pros

It's a job

Cons

Salary promised was not given. Poor rosters

Non productive place of work

Not a great place to work, complete disregard on health and safety issues, say one thing, do another. Don't back their drivers, totes not picked properly. Company doesn't stand up for their drivers, to many chiefs, they say one thing just to try and keep you happy but don't really care

Pros

No pros

Cons

Disregard for health and safety, some egotistical people in head office, say one thing do another, vans not serviced, wait for lights to come on before anything is done, tyres on the vans are not weather related, breaks deducted even though cannot take them, no loading time of vans, returning to depot as groceries not fully picked, totes labelled wrong

Bad work practices

Delivery driver representing Dunnes Stores deliveries on behalf of CDS. Some CDS work colleagues immature and made lewd remarks about Dunnes staff and myself. CDS drivers lazy and did not want to do anything to help business build. Stressful for people that were willing to work and always go that bit extra.

Pros

None

Cons

No overtime, poor wage

Grand company

Fine crowd to work for, wages always on time without any issues. Would like to earn more in this economy, but pays ok. Meet different people every day. Well kept vans

Inclusive & Fair Employer

Fair, Progressive employment environment where everyone is expected to work hard and are, in turn, treated very well and with respect. The open door policy works well to create an informal & inclusive team.

Face-paced, exciting working environment

A great company to work for. Fast-paced, positive working environment. They adopt a collaborative team approach in every day work life. All departments work in symmetry to ensure daily activities run smoothly.

Pros

Positive working environment, Work Life balance, Good pay

Nice company to work for but the salary needs to be increased to take into account the physical nature of the job.

Excellent management but considering that you are not just a driver but also responsible for delivering heavy loads of shopping to peoples doors the salary is just not good enough.

Cons

Heavy physical lifting.

Great place to work

Everything is done for you, just show up collect your van and drive 15 - 20 minutes to collect your deliveries, can be up to 20 deliveries a day but all routed for you including break times all I have to do is show up to each delivery on time. All deliveries are in the one area not all over Ireland like last companies. By far the easiest job iv done

Pros

Set hours

Cons

Work every 2nd or 3rd Sunday

Avoid

Long hours of work 13-15 hours, to many drops per day. They will push you to work over 60hours per week. Poor management in Midelton, avoid this job there is many better companies ,

Challenging and Enjoyable

Every day brings different challenges which makes the days very interesting. The saying "Everyday is a School Day" should be our Motto, I have gained so much new knowledge since joining the company in 2015. The office culture is very family orientated which makes it a very pleasant place to work. Overall its a very enjoyable company to work for and am delighted i decided to join the team here.

happy working place to work in

My typical day in work starts around 5am. My truck does be loaded and then I put my customers into order the way i want to do them. I then set off and deliver frozen foods to shops, schools and canteens around the Dublin and Leinster area. I find all of my co-workers fun and enjoyable to work with. Since I am on my own in the truck every day I don't see many of them except in the morning. The hardest part of my day is trying to get around Dublin city in the early morning rush hour traffic which can be tedious. The most enjoyable part of my day is dealing with my customers, most of who i have built up a friendly raptorw with

Pros

Getting to work with the general public

Cons

long hours and early starts as well
