      Former Employee - Home Delivery Driver in Huddersfield, England
      Recommends

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

      Pros

      Was allowed to keep vehicle overnight, as had no other transport

      Cons

      due to lack of experience, time frame was punishing. Some Customers contact details were out of date.

      Advice to Management

      Verify Details and Update ASAP, used to be done in-store, now done by third-party

    • "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...

          I have been working at Iceland Foods part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Free tea and coffee, friendly environment

          Cons

          Lack of experience from management in this field creates impossible delivery runs, e.g. ETA to store on return leaves you with 5 minutes turnaround, and drivers are expected to unload empty crates, return them to store front, before sorting out their deliveries for next window. Poorly staffed. Only 4/5 drivers on childlike contracts, poorly paid - only £9.22 per hour and alot is expected. Basically like slavery.....

          Advice to Management

          Hire a transport planning clerk, scrap Route Monkey, pay drivers more, get bigger vans!!

            Management go on smoke breaks with their buddies , allow others to have a 5 min crafty break if you must have a smoke every hour or so.

            I have been working at Iceland Foods part-time for less than a year

            Pros

            driving is easy not timed just 2 hour slots

            Cons

            being advised to come in an hour before shift (10am start) at 9am to get van ready and loaded before 10am. being advised to only have 20 minutes of one hour break because you need to get van ready for 3pm slots. What does this mean in real terms well the pay is £9.22 an hour but if you start at 9am and only have a twenty minute lunch break you are only earning £8.02 an hour.

            Advice to Management

            There needs to be time before delivery starts to load and check the van, if that is not timed into the shift, the first delivery is normally 10.09 which gives you, if you start at 10am, 9 minutes to load, check van and get to first delivery point
