    Pros

    Can be flexible at times, pay is reasonable, love working with the customers

    Too much expectation, over loaded, drivers no longer plan routes, new devices do it for us which makes things a lot harder. Frequently run late, little to no support from the store

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the drivers

  8. "It was good at the start"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Home Delivery Driver 

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

    Pros

    Good pay, it was £9.50 p/h

    Cons

    Used to do deliveries by splitting them between two drivers via paper e.g. there would be 16 deliveries and one driver would get 8 and the other would get 8 A new system was introduced (mobile phone) which basically put all the information you needed on to that device so there was no longer for the need of paperwork. It was also your Sat Nav. Since that happenes it became a not enjoyable job. It make the job... unfair and more stressful. As the device allocates jobs based on what it thinks one van can do (in a 2 hr slot) e.g. if there was 16 deliveries, it could put 12 on one van and 4 on the other. This made it pretty much impossible to do the job and you were always running late - turned into a really tiring, back bending job - don't apply
