Yep...I worked at any depot that didn't make the deliveries, I wsa the one that put all those cards through your doors and don't get me started on dropping parcels!! lol

Seen comments on here that couriers were contracted out to self employed van owners for 64p/parcel. That true??? Would explain an awful lot mind.

No idea about that side of things...I was a controller who bossed them all about and got grief back! But got to say, I loved working with the guys as you get as good as you give and they don't have mood swings like women! Rather work with a bunch of guys than a bunch of women. They do have tight schedules to keep to some days but not all are work shy!

CityLink took over Target couriers and stretched themselves too much! Drivers expected to deliver more but in same time scale as before....some of the runs were horrendous. But I guess most courier companies are the same!

I work for a big courier company - I'll give you a clue 3 letters - bright orange lol

It is great working with a load of guys - I much prefer to it than just an office full of moody moaning women lol

Every company has the odd drivers who are work shy - But most are hard working and if they dont deliver it just has a roll on effect for them the next day.

Which depot did you work at?
