Lack of communication, zero transparency, below minimum wage
Multi Drop Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Cork7 July 2019
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
General Operative (Former Employee) –  Cork27 February 2019
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
Courier Driver (Current Employee) –  Cork23 February 2019
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
