I am currently working in the cork depot and if you know how to do your job, its an easy job. You really need to know the cork area or else you can struggle, but there are plenty of people who are willing to help you out if you want it. It is extremely fast paced environment but it has to be expected because of the time of year we are in and also due to covid.
Pros
Recognision from management
Cons
5 nights

I have worked in Fastway for 3 years and there has been so many positive changes especially in the last 18-24 months. The Coronavirus was dealt with immediately throughout the network and communication was the best ever. I welcome change as it was a hard environment a few years ago to work in but I am happy to see so much change.
Pros
Approachable Management
Cons
Close but not there yet!

I worked as a driver for three years for a busy franchisee. He was fair always paid me on time , gave a bonus at Christmas. When I worked there Fastway was a growing moving company, this was before the move to Little Island. The office staff were co-operative in our depot. The role included scanning and loading goods in the morning, delivering until about 2:00pm. Then pick ups in the afternoon. Unloading. Finishing between 5 and 6pm depending how busy you are. From October to December it was non stop busy and you could end up doing 12hr or more per shift.
Pros
Free workphone, actively meeting people daily, working as part of a team
Cons
Top heavy management, internal frictions between franchisees and management

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.

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

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.

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.

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 .

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

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

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
