Illegally low wages
Avoid , I brought my own van to to the neighbourhood courier work .Parcels would not arrive to my house till 10.30 A M , your supposed to check them in front of the delivery driver but he just wants to clear off to get on with his own overloaded deliveries, so you sign but if any are missing you've had it.Then you scan them all into your handset which can take an hour or more ,Then you can eventually start .delivering

Very Good Place
Very nice place to work, my manager was very lovely and caring. I really loved this place until my contract ended and they weren't willing to hire me full time but still fun place to work. Drivers are always nice and make the work environment better!

Worst place I have been at
They don't treat you fairly, they expect you to work long hours overtime but they don't want to pay for it. If you are not married for the job, you. Won't progress any further.
ProsFun collegues
ConsLong hours, low payment, bad management

not very productive.
you have to use your own vehicle, use your own wage for fuel, if for any reason your vehicle is off the road Yodel will not help in any way, it is not a nice company to work for in my own experience.
Prosnone
Consruined my own vehicle carrying parcels of excess weight.

Courier | Warrington | 16 Mar 2021
AVOID!!!!!! Self employed courier
Where to start with this company, First of all it took three days before I received any parcels after being promised each day I would receive them. On interviewing you were told they would start you off with 40 parcels a day and Then up it from there, after working there for 2 weeks i was lucky if I got 15 parcels a day which after fuel cost worked out at about breakeven. The management are poor, no communication at all and there promises were just lies. Clearly taking people on when they don’t have the volume of parcels available for every driver. Don’t waste your time with this shambles of a company. It will costs you more money than you will make.

what I learned
My very first fulltime job after I graduated from college. I learned how to fight against with emergency situations alone, that was not easy for an freshman of this industry who was just graduated. Also, I learnd a lot of Korean's culture(this is an Korean company).

Do they do CRB CHECK!
Asked 10 Aug 2017
Yes as a core full time driver they do check
Answered 21 Jun 2019
Nah, no CRB check for agency staff they do a what's called a "lite" check to identify you and your who you say you are but one thing they do have on a pretty random basis about 4/5 times a year is a drug and alcohol test picked at random around 50-100 people depending how many are on shift and normally that's 90% get checked except the managers of course....breath test for alcohol and a urine sample testing strip used for drugs. If found with anything even if prescription drugs in your system until you can bring proof you are prescribed then you are suspended and told to leave until further investigation so beware!
