Poor management and work life balance

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Hard work but paid well

Very demanding job and management are very unsympathetic to much other than their own personal gain, that being said if you are able to put the work in it can be very worth your while

Stressful and a lot of work for not a lot of pay

Don’t even bother with this company Hard work for nothing in return could earn same working at Costa. If you hit the van you have to pay for it also. Go to work in the dark come home if the dark. Pointless collections which only the company benefit from you get nothing extra for it

Cons

Long hours, no break, standing around wasting time at depot

Not great

Load of hours an stress for not much more than minimum wage , have to go depot twice a day , no lunch break if you want to get home half decent ish time. Over worked and underpaid. Managers at the depot couldn’t care less if you have an issue they’ll just expect you to solve it somehow an carry on sat at their desk.

Worse place of work

I worked for DPD Gloucester, with my husband. My experience was devastating. Long hours, anti-social life. Mangers are rude, don't care about your health and safety. All you are asked to so is to work long hours 6-8 no complain. They treat their staff so bad.

Pros

none

Cons

Long hours, mistreatment, no breaks

Stress

Very stressful and more jobs put on than you can do. Overtime compulsory and no help from managers. Fast paced but lacking organisation. If you want the money yes but be prepared for 50 hours a week without being asked. No family time midweek.

Pros

Money

Cons

Long hours and stress.

Jako pracownik jesteś śmieciem

Otóż "Pan" brygadzista , jeden i drugi są siebie warci. Często absolutnie nic nie robią, jedzą paluszki i patrzą na kamery, palą fajkę za fajką. Jeden był szczególnie chamski, nawet jak na Lisią Górę - co mnie aż zaskoczyło, bo +/- połowa osób na magazynie była całkiem w porządku. Jak masz z*pi****l (i nie masz znajomości) nie licz na pomoc, brygadzista przyjdzie powiedzieć ci jedynie żebyś szybciej robił. Buty z blachą obowiązkowe do zakupu samemu, dają rękawiczki i przy odrobinie szczęścia nową kamizelkę odblaskową (ja go nie miałem). Nawet jakiegoś ukraińca wsadzili od razu na skaner, a gdy przez dzień-dwa pomagał chłopakom na tirze po prostu robił wszystko żeby nic nie robić (tak jak Pan J. >RODO< pewnie po dziś dzień tj 19.11.22).Oczywiście o jakiś awansach można zapomnieć, zleceniówka na magazyniera, jedynie stanowisko możesz dostać inne, ale nie dostaniesz. Po prostu osadzają pewną, wybraną grupę osób na ciężkie stanowiska a inne na lekkie (nawet jeśli pracują kilka dni a inny po kilka miesięcy lub dłużej). Jak ktoś lubi muzykę to niestety leci radio na którym puszczają cały czas to samo do porzygu albo szpaka a prośby o zmianę nie pomagają. Elektrycznym wózkiem nie możesz jeździć chyba, że masz uprawnienia od nich (których nie dowiedziałem się jak zdobyć mimo licznych pytań) lub z zewnątrz (co nie znaczy, że możesz nim jeździć). Kilka osób miałem wrażenie, że nie robiły absolutnie nic, czasem coś elektrykiem przewiozą albo bawią sią paczkami. Praca dla młodego na chwilę nie jest zła jeśli pracujesz w lato/jesień . Przerw nie ma jedynie takie gdy nie ma paczek, czasem - 

Pros

Darmowa (mała) kawa (1/dzień z automatu, który nie zawsze działa lub szczury przegryzły kable), spóźnienia 5/10min są tolerowane jeśli nie są nagminne

Cons

Wypłaty po 15 dniach od skończonego miesiąca

Stressfull

Very fast pace work. Stressful and really unorganised workplace. Break time can be anytime and can be at the beginning of the shift. So you get at work and you're on Break. Sometimes you may not get a break because of trailers time.

Pros

Big company

Cons

Unorganised, stressful, Don't care about staff even if you're employed, They will squeeze you until you have no juice left

Customer Service Advisor (Depot Based)

98% of calls are complaints, only get back up from depot team and driver managers if they are chased by depot managers, spend all day taking calls for other depots, micro managed like a call centre, ie not the quality of customer service you are providing, but unrealistic KPI’s, including “productivity” which you are scored down on when you go to the toilet or take your lunch break, so if you do either of these you will never hit 100%, nearly every process is designed to make your job more difficult

Fun job

If you’re fit and energetic you’ll excel at the job and can get your round done in under 8 hours no problem. Get left alone all day but can call management whenever you’ve a problem and they’ll deal with it. Decent job for decent pay.

Unprofessional and no work life balance

They expect you to work like robots with barely any breaks. Worst company I have ever worked for. No work like balance. Can’t take time off for appointments. Managers don’t do any work and wide g team members to do everything

Awful

Overworked, very rarely a day less than 10 hours, get wet, management is awful and you're given terribly planned routes and too many packages and expected to deliver them all.

Appaling

I've worked for a few different parcel delivery companies and DPD is by far the worst one going. They treat you shockingly, I honestly recommend any other company over these. DPD Bradford depot is the worse I worked in, I've worked in 4 different DPD depots. The management there are appalling to say the least. For yours and your family's sanity, go work for a different company.

Only take a job if your desperate

Management will send you late collections so their favourites can finish early. I’ve often been sent to the other side of Liverpool to do collections at 3 and 4 pm when there is other drivers closer who could do them. You get paid minimum money for the hours and work you do all so the owner can line his pockets. They force Saturday working around Christmas. You are just a number to them and very easily replaceable so if you aren’t a yes man they will have you replaced very quickly.

Pros

Out on the road

Cons

Long hours, over worked, management, wages
