clamp truck operator (Current Employee) –  CoventryApril 10, 2019
i liked working here at kuehne and nagel as its a really clean and tidy place for a warehouse, the hours are great and the staff are so friendly.

the hardest part of the jobs is the weather changes to be honest, sitting on a fork lift with no sides when its blisteringly cold is unbearable.

Manchester branch of trafford park rd
Class 2 Driver (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater ManchesterOctober 11, 2018
Not the best place to work for.
Long hours, 4 a.m. early starts, long distances, hard graft.
Management/ planning far from ideal.
Staff unfriendly, not willing to help, give clues with very few exceptions.
On cage food deliveries + bin man type of work.
I will never go back there.
Pros
none

Just a number
Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) –  Manchester centerpointApril 1, 2018
Managers that can't pass managers courses or even drive dictating to profesional drivers on how to do vehicle checks/loading and how to park etc. Unorganized and forced to drive vehicles not road worthy.

Benefits are great, however, improvement is needed in regards to proffessionalism.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLFebruary 20, 2018
Competitive, somewhat stressful. No-man-standing environment. Management needs improvements (professionalism) to be more specific. Favoritism is quite apparent.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Lots of Improvements on proffessionalism

Managers cant Run a BATH
HGV Driver/Shunnter (Former Employee) –  Trafford Park, Greater ManchesterMarch 17, 2017
Company is OK, but major issues with office staff, there is no such thing as private and confidential, office staff discuss openly in ear shot of other drivers from drivers being suspended to others on final warnings

came from agency work which is a lot easier to many politics here

hardest part of the job defecting vehicles to be bullied into taking them out

another issue with the job was dealing with the negativity and back stabbing from the TSM who were not professional and would benefit on going on a coarse on management skills
Pros
Regular Routes
Cons
Bad & Bulling Managers

Excellent experience
Driver class 2 (Former Employee) –  UttoxeterFebruary 22, 2017
Normally a trip would consist of 2x2 days, or a 4 day trip (it was a 4 day week). Our DC had an enormous footprint so one trip could be to Cornwall, the next to the Isle of Man, or Ireland, or the North East. A white-glove delivery service, the contract we worked for really looked after us and ensured we had sufficient time at each drop to do the job correctly.
Pros
4 day week, good night-out pay.
Cons
Long days.

Driver class 2 (Current Employee) –  Greenford, Greater LondonFebruary 8, 2017
   Working day usually starts at 4 - 5 a.m. with completing the delivery papers, checking cargo truck and then we start the driving. I get to take contact with a lot of people which is actually the most enjoyable part of my job with driving itself.
I appreciate very much the purview discipline that resembles company from this point of view with military rigor.
Pros
new lorrys
Cons
London traffic congestion.

Driving work,
HGV Class 1 Driver (Current Employee) –  DerbySeptember 3, 2016
A lot is demanded from you at work. They always seem to be looking for savings, to the point where it is now getting difficult to get simple things like gloves. The vehicles are getting old, but no plans to replace them. Not a happy place to work. Not an easy place to give your best.

You will work weekends
HGV Class 1 Driver (Current Employee) –  ManchesterAugust 23, 2016
At Trafford Park you will have to work weekends, the money is good but the management and planners are useless. The units are not up to much, the company is trying to cut the wages but the union is fighting it and there is no work life balance
Pros
Money
Cons
Bad management and planners
