Fun work place , meet new people on route

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Is not good when you don't have your boss directly from DPD , I. had one intermediary boss between me and DPD .We were paid at minimum wage , and they wanted us drivers to pay in case of damaging the vans . The good thing is that you learn your route you can finish early

Pros

Finish early sometimes when not busy

Cons

Heavy parcel sometimes

Worst than a Kitchen Porter

Deceits, manipulation, and pay are serious issues. Human Resources uses every trick in the book. Takes advantage of desperate people. Worst Job ever, and not worth it on one's CV. Just the trauma you hope to forget.

Pros

nothing

Cons

inhuman work

Stressful job

Job is very repetitive and is always short staffed so it is hard to be able to join as a new worker and perform well. The pay is also a joke for the hours you are working your shift will start at 12 and end when all work is completed which is all throughout the night for 10:50€

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Hours

Horrible place to work extremely unprofessional

Extremely unprofessional senior staff . Interview process is a joke , induction is just thrown in the deep end and sink or swim. Funnily enough if you sink with absolutely no help from your boss they fire you.

Pros

Canteen tea

Cons

Everything else

Stressfull and really not worth

You work from 7 until 18.00 most of the time, and you are not paid for overtime. You are responsible for all damage to the van, you will have to pay for any small scratch. There are no sick days. You cant have a break, since they are very strict with their delivery times. It's very stressful and I would never recommend anyone this job. It's not just delivery driver, when you get in depo in the morning you have to work in the warehouse first, sort stuff. If you go to the countryside you have to drive like a crazy person on roads where you cant drive fast, but you have to, cuz of the times previously mentioned.

Poor management and work life balance

No worklife balance, poor management! Poor communication, extensive bullying . No encouragement just criticism. nothing is ever good enough. Getting time off is very hard to get.

Pros

You get to meet people every day

Cons

Long hours, poor pay, bullying

Fast paced

Stressful at times but for the rate of pay it’s manageable, long hours can be a challenge and balancing a social life while working nights can be tough

Not a good place to work for

The money is terriable for the work you have to do there your treated like a dog run Into the ground hours keep changing can change at short notice the pay is terriable you won't get full hours even if you be promised that you will to much management with no communication you will be asked to move all over the building instead of where you are supposed to be - Avoid at all costs

Pros

Reduced Dinners Staff activities

Cons

Bad Money Shortened Hours Shift Changes Bad management Asked to Move diffrent sections

A good place to work, lot of fun

A good place to work, I met many people with whom I have contact so far. If there are problems, the management tries to solve and help employees as soon as possible. Work at night is quite hard but also a good hourly wage, if you work over 40 hours you will surely be satisfied. Was let go after Christmas, but probably my fault

Na

Better jobs elsewhere, doesn't pay good wages, senior management not connected with what happens on the floor, nor do they care about the employees...
