Avoid at all cost!!!
No hygiene in any buildings
Management always on breaks and never take on any responsibility or do any work themselves
No job security
So much Favouritism- only way to work your way up is to kiss upto management
Use workers when busy and throw them away afterwards
Management do not appreciate any work
Expect you to bend over backwards for the busines, when they can’t do the same for employees-expect to work extra hours with no pay or notice
If you’re friends with the management, you can get away with anything (not do work, take longer breaks)
Management have no people skills-treat workers like animals

Had the worst line manager paul curnane a total bully i loved my job but was forced out by this guys and i really miss the team there excellebt staff and people
Lots of fresh air. Each day was different, depending on the area being allocated.
Courier in Stirlingshire area , with no two days being the same. The job pace was quick with up to 120 parcels each day. When the weather was good, a most pleasurable job.

Fun work place
I have a proven track record of managerial experience and training people to a high standard.
My knowledge comes from over ten years in the customer relations field and I have grown with each new promotion.
However, now I feel a career path is what I wish to gain at this stage of my life.
Given the opportunity I would relish the challenge of a job like this and showcase my abilities to your company.
I work excellent within a team environment and equally as good when working alone is required.
Hermes allowed me to improve on already learnt skills and become better as a person and as a working professional.
ProsExtra pay good rates for weekend and bank holidays.
ConsObstructive adherance system.

Good Salary but be prepared to work extra hours
Spent 12 years working at Hermes doing different management roles throughout the Scottish Network, Edinburgh, Perth, Eurocentral depots
The salary's that are offered are industry leading but in turn you are expected to be available 24/7 7 days a week and it is also impossible to take your annual leave due to work commitments.
Bonus system is good but criteria isn't always fair as lots of the measures you need to meet are outwith your control.
Since I've left the company seem to be finally listening ref depot structure so I would recommend working with Hermes.
ConsSupport when your are new to a role, Hours, Family friendly, Communication within higher management

Clique based, incestuous senior management team, who do not allow outliers to progress. Began to progress, however once your face does not fit, they will force constructive dismissal upon you.
BDE Role at Hermes u get paid like your working in a warehouse mini wage
As a Business development executive for the parcel shops, u will be paid mini wage, they don’t look after you. Work load will never match your wages. If your looking for fair wages forget working for Hermes. I have recently left the company and many more are to follow. Hermes offer teenage wages to full on adults and expect them to be loyal. I would say people keep looking else where, other companies are offering 37,000 to 45,000 relating to what you would be doing at Hermes. Not a good company to work for, u will sign up new stores and get no commission, even on the volumes generated by your stores. U are better off working in a takeaway shop and earn more money. Hermes are very afraid to reward the BDE’s, honestly no commission on sign ups, projects taken on. No reward
Hermes is a nice company for those how like to do hard work .Courier Delivery driver job is really hard job . Managers and people are nice and helpful that’s why I like Hermes
If you're lucky, you'll maybe get £100 - £200 a week. Loading procedures do not exist and you won't get any help from what they call field managers. All you get is the zero hours possible chance of maybe picking up a day or two at stupidly low parcel rates (41p per parcel in town/city locations). You get to use your own vehicle with all the wear and tear and maybe break even in a year. Their phone app (yeah, you have to use your own phone too) is useless and the scanner only picks up part of the time. You get 4 weeks of access to their route optimisation software but really it does nothing and cannot work out ETA's. The mapping software is so vague you may as well sling your drops in a field and take a photo mid air saying 'well, I got it as close as your f**king software'. Really, if you want to work as a courier, these are not the people to apply to, even if you're totally skint. I worked as a central London dispatch rider for years without missing a day, the routes and management here are scary and the rates below minimum wage, way below.
ProsPros? There are none.
