Ok so, started a job, went nearly 100 miles out of my way for a heath and safety session, which looked like it had been filmed in the 1960's. Got the van, utter rubbish, cheapest thing that they could get racks in quickly enough. Told to go out. First few weeks with a new product in bread you expect returns, but the volume was unmanageable. Bread never caught on, some folk are set in their ways yes, but this was different, came up expecting to dominate and got right royally shafted. Set hours were ok, you don't take the job if you don't like mornings. Training was on the job, handhelds never worked properly. Paper book was your best friend but a nightmare for returns. End of stock days where your van HAD to be cleared, sometimes wasn't possible. Pay seemed to fluctuate between drivers.
The work day ended ( sometimes)
Bad pay, lack of leadership, nobody really knew what was going on.
I enjoyed being on the road with a good product for many years, and being left alone to get on with it, and when I needed assistance I got it when a problem arose my seniors immediately looked for a solution. In recent years my supervisor would look for fault someone to blame, which of course serves no purpose other than to irritate the driver, the management Then introduced an unmanageable number of lines which has left the company with no premium products but a plethora of bits and pieces. The company unfortunately don't consult with the people at the coalface, people who could help them. But they choose not to do so
Management won't listen
Long hours little to no rewards. After work hour phone calls, no respect for private life. Over expectation from managers forcing you to exceed your shift and work for free. No overtime unless they are stuck for a driver and them you are bullied into working
Long hours constant bullying from superiors
