Hard work little pay
People that you work with a great, management don't care pay is bad, long hours especially during Christmas you have to work early till very late. Time restrictions make you drive quick and isn't safe your always driving quick to get to the next drop and hope your not caught for speeding
Pros
other drivers are sound
Cons
time restrictions on drops are unrealistic

Ok to work for
Ok to work for long days and strict time frames hard to get a break with times kicking in. Large areas to cover and not much help but not a bad job to be in would need to be physically fit

Keep away
Dont work for these because they will use and abuse you. They will drain every bit of happiness out of you and keep pushing for you to do more and more and more work.

Good team to work with.
I enjoyed working with DPD it was very fast paced and prompt. It was very important to get your route planned well before starting as this would determine what your day was like. There is always somebody ready to help you if you are in need so good team work.

Not a bad place to work
Fast paced environment , never boring. Wages could be a lot better for the amount of work to be done. More support needed. More opportunities for progression needed.

It's a tough number, but you get used to it. Long days with early starts. Christmas and bank holidays are mental. All that being said I enjoyed it you meet some great people.
Pros
Good wages, plenty of overtime.

Long days

If your desperate go here
Pay was so low for warehouse staff at minimum wage for 11pm to 730am but often till 8 with no extra pay. Terrible immature management who have no idea what they are doing take no imput from staff. No over time once worked 44hrs for €360. Really stressfull company who pay so little and saftey training is none excisting. All that fault of management fell back on wearhouse staff

Don't go near them.
Stay away....Nothing but pressure and stress.
13 hour days.

Not enough help in the morning loading the van.

100 drops per day which could be over one hundred and fifty parcels then you fill the van again and empty it yourself when you return.

STAY AWAY.
Pros
None.
Cons
No lunch break. No toilet break.

Lack of communication, zero transparency, below minimum wage
If uou want to get experience driving I would highly recommend DPD as this is the bottom job to geg and by having this on your CV other company's will look at this as a real test.

Unrealistic deadlines, only 1 hour to deliver each job but you have 25 jobs per hour, ridiculous. Delivering early is just as bad as late, you can't deliver to a bsuiness early, on your scanners time, what business doesnt want their goods early, understandable for domestic items which are 25% of your deliveries.


Your time for delivering is limited as you have collections that could be the other side of where your delivery area is, mind boggling.
Pros
Chance to gain experience
Cons
Long hours, low pay (below minimum wage when calculate the hours) zero communication, high expectation, very little training provided

Nice work colleagues for the most part
Stay away, they want you to work your 8 hour shift then on a saturday morning expect you to go out to do deliveries for a few hours. Also when i left they never paid for the days i worked the previous week dispite asking numberous of times via email, phone and calling into speak to them, also never gave me aby holiday hours i was due.

The drivers want you to put packages in order of there route, drivers can get fierce upset and shouting and roaring would start if its not done correctly.

Stressful place to work
Money is good but long hours and constantly rushing as can't go in the red (must deliver parcels within 1hr window)

Management always pushing to do more jobs.


It's robots they need not humans


Only good thing is the tax free lunch allowance. You don't get taxed on the last 100 ya earn so tax is small every week.


If you damage a van(which is likely due to stress and rushing) your wages will be docked til van is fixed.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Poor management and long stressful hours

productive work place
This was a job that was all about time specification. It included general clerical duties as well as liaising with the drivers to collect and/or deliver goods for customers on a guaranteed time limit.
Pros
fast paced and enjoyable
Cons
specific time limits

Productive and fun workplace
A typical day in work involved dealing with customers over the phone in mail and in person. I enjoyed working on my own and as part of a team to resolve an issues encountered throughout the day.

I find all staff very welcoming and with a good general knowledge of their duties for the day.

Ambiente dinámico, carga de trabajo y buena organización.
Contestar a las llamadas telefónicas, entregar y recibir paquetes de los clientes, gestionar la logística de los mismos, solucionar problemas de los conductores, enviar y recibir emails, organización en el almacén.
La parte más difícil podría ser que todas estas funciones se desarrollaron en una lengua extranjera ( inglés)

Me gustó todo del trabajo, ya que fue una gran oportunidad para desenvolverme y mejorar sobre todo el idioma auditivamente.
