Terrible place to work honestly please if you are reading this do not do it !! the vehicles are never loaded on time so your told to start at 6.30am you get in to be told to wait in the canteen could be waiting 2 hours and the transport office could not care less about it. When you are loaded you have lots of paper work to do before leaving the site and if your lucky you will have your load in totes but lately they have been putting everything on pallets so the driver has to sort through the delivery before delivering the correct items to the customer and make sure you deliver the correct items or expect a roasting when you get back to the depot! the machine they give you with your days work load on which also doubles up as a sat nav never takes you to where you need to go even though someone that works there has uploaded this information on to the devise they have even uploaded where the depot is wrongly which I found absolutely hilarious, make sure you do not go on a contract or expect to do 3 to 5 hours more a day you will not get paid for, go on agency so at least you get paid by the hour they have a agency office in there main building pretemps which tells you a lot about staff turn over!! weigh bridge has not been working for a few months now so you never know if you are driving an overloaded vehicle, the vehicles are tracked and you will get another roasting for harsh braking (sometimes this can't be helped) harsh acceleration (somthimes this can't be helped) harsh cornering and speeding don't get me wrong they need to know where there drivers are but it seems to be allmore... you get is moaning never praise for hard work or a good job done this week.Was told only 15 to 17 drops a day when I took the job on but what they don't say is this can take you between 10 to 13 hours a day!! I worked my wages out by the hour last week for the hours I did I got paid £5.36 an hour because I'm on a contract and set pay they will not pay over time unless you go in on your rest day!! don't go by the website for holiday as that is also a load of rubbish all you get is 20 days you do not get bank holidays off as staled on the website unless your lucky and your rest day falls on that day and they do not allow any holiday in December. HONESTLY PLEASE DO NOT BE DRAGGED IN BY THE HR CALLING YOU ALL EXCITED THAT YOU HAVE THE JOB IT IS TERRIBLE HERE AND THERE ARE DESPERATE FOR DRIVERS BECAUSE THEY KEEP LEAVING!!!less

Good company to work for. Hours were 4 days on, 4 days off. Or you could work permanent nights Monday through til Thursday. Part time hours was available also. Constant work, but pay is good as well as 3 paid breaks. Good management. Yes I recommend this company.
Days off when working 4 on 4 off. If you book 4 days holiday you get a total of 16 days off
