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

Ok to work for
Courier driver (Current Employee) –  Limerick13 January 2020
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
Director (Former Employee) –  Galway12 January 2020
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.
