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.

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.
Cons
Long days
