    I worked at Iceland Foods for less than a year

    Pros

    We could leave early once our work was complete. Working on your own in the van can be relatively stress free

    Cons

    I had no training, despite having never driven a van before. On my first shift I was sent out on my own to drive the van and complete the deliveries - it didn't feel OK at all. I was on a delivery in my first week and a member of the public tried to steal my van, he took the keys out of my hand and threatened to kill me. I was told to go back to him later in the day and was offered no suport from management despite me raising my concerns. I was given no equipment to do my job despite being promised this. I was only given 3 t shirts, I was given no coat, waterproof, boots, hat, gloves, hi vis or anything else. We rarely got breaks, which meant sometimes we would be driving for 9 hours straight. Sometimes I was doing 3 peoples jobs (25 deliveries in 2 hours) with no support, meaning food was being delivered thawed and warm. No support or help from management despite asking for it. My hours would be changed on a near daily basis. I was on a 7 hour contract, management refusing to give me more hours. All of my colleagues were also on very small contracts.

    Current Employee - Delivery Driver in York, England, England

    I have been working at Iceland Foods part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The actual job is enjoyable Physical work

    Cons

    You don’t get much drive time on slots so you have to move. They don’t give you extra time for road works or school holidays. Drivers come in early to have a bit of a safety net don’t get any thanks for this. If there’s any mistakes in shop it falls on the drivers and makes them late which happens on a daily basis. If you get injured at work which is likely from a door smashing you in the back don’t expect any sympathy or any pay when off sick.

    I worked at Iceland Foods part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great and helpful people and ability to manage own workload out on the road

    Cons

    Insufficient time allowed for each delivery run with no proper allowance for bad traffic/difficulty finding some houses/time to load up the van and carry out safety checks. Most shifts you end up working through your breaks to make up time and also having to come in early to load the van up to ensure that delivery run times are met. In a 4 hour shift you could typically end up working between 1/1.5 additional hours with no pay!

    Constantly expected to perform other peoples jobs Not only do you have to drive and deliver groceries, carrying them up countless flights of stairs, you have to pack customers shopping at the till, bring the shopping to the chillers/freezers, sort the customers shopping for your time window and load your van in a one bay parking slot while other vans are waiting for you to move out of the way because they are supposed to be loading too for the same time window
