Don't go near them.
Courier Driver (Former Employee) –  Drogheda, County Louth3 August 2019
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.

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
