Challenging Work & Fast Paced
Every day was different and very fast-paced. The working day went really quickly. The management was very friendly and approachable. I learned a lot from working here about the industry. The hardest part of the role was the workload was sometimes difficult to manage. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people that you work with. They really try to help you with your work.

Driver
Worked in New Ross depot for an agency in Cork, was there for 2 1/2 years, depot was ok, other drivers were sound, Management are useless and untrustworthy, tell lies constantly and make false promises. There is a real clique in the place, and if you don't lick hole, your frozen out. Avoid at all cost's, the worst company I've ever worked for.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor wages, no job satisfaction

Nobody should work in a place like this.
Theft and willful destruction of packages. No honest person with morals could possibly work there. It's the worst job I've ever had the misfortune of being in. You have been warned.
Pros
No pros whatsoever
Cons
Working with thieves and scum.

Hard work, long hours.
Be prepared to work a long day, 6am to 6pm at peak times. Shorter days off peak times. You are constantly on the move, no designated break times, must show initiative and be able to work independently. Good customer relations, requires patience. Upkeep of vehicle and equipment your own responsibility.

Good work life balance
An enjoyable place to work. Good rates of pay but hours can be very long.There are no two days the same ,while you will be covering the same area it will depend on how many deliveries you have , therefore there is no particular set start and finish time. It is enjoyable meeting new customers .

It's a kip
Worked here for Christmas, there's clicks in the place and alot of back biting goes on. The management is atrocious and some of the staff are lazy who avoid work. You will never progress in a company like fastway.
They let me go to keep the lazy thieving staff they have there no logic in it at all.

Best of luck to them

Would not recommend
Did not have a good experience. Was taken on before Christmas and was told my job was permanent. As soon as the January sales finished, myself and 4 others were told we wouldn’t be kept on as it wouldn’t be busy over summer months

decent
the starts are early. the work culture was is not high as the sorters would sort the packages wrong and your packages would end up in someone else's bay which made the work harder in the morning but it was a minor inconvenience. the work was easy when you got to know the route and arrangements

Good place to work
A typical day at work is very fast paced, every is a fresh start to complete all pay to a deadline. I have learned a lot while working here. Most of the management team are very good and fair. All my colleagues are great people to work with. Hardest part of the job would be fitting all the tasks into the week, as there is always a lot of data to be processed, but every week it gets done. Most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction when difficult tasks are completed and also the great relationship had with my colleagues

terrible company to work for
An absolute terrible company to work for , management are worse than useless, they drain every drop of life and money out of you with absolutely no return , I would not recommend anyone in their right frame of mind to have anything to do with fastway , was the biggest mistake of my life getting involved with what I call a company of rogues and that's putting it mildly , stay clear

dont put your money in fastway
the whole system is a scam, you invest money in franchisee but get nothing back, nobody cares about you, everything what they say is - your franchisee, your problem. very long hours starting very early morning, finishing very late, a lot of expenses on fuel, van insurance, uniforms, labels, etc etc...fastway is not supporting at all, never buy franchisee, its not a business. its a business for company but not for franchisee owner. i lost a lof money working for them. AVOID!!!
Pros
none at all
Cons
everything
