Hard work, long hours, not great pay
Driver (Former Employee), SouthamptonSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: its work
Cons: all customers seem to work much kinder hours
Arrive at work at 0500 most days, check vehicle, load and complete morning documentation.

I learned that although procedures are set by the company, the loads are often incorrect, cargo straps are often under the freight requiring an unload/reload, the vehicle keys are not always in the correrct place and reported vehicle faults have not been rectified.

Management seem far too busy to remember all that is required.

Co-workers always seem disgruntled, always something they are not happy with.

The hardest part of the job is finding servicable equipment around the yard to complete the day's work safely and efficiently.

The most enjoyable part of the job is 'going home time' knowing you have given the days your best shot

HGV ..Now considering van & 7.5 ton work
Unemployed (Former Employee), Braintree /colchester/chelmsford areasJuly 1, 2014
My previous work as HGV driver consisted of delivering and collecting steel. My working day consisted of between 10/15 hr shifts. My work mates were all very helpful with my working day as they added support and friendship for me. This was a big part of my staying with the company for the years that I did...My immediate Manager was a friend as well as a boss, which made for a good working environment .
I am now looking for the smaller vehicle driving work and will give the same commitment to those whom will employ me.
