    I have been working at Kuehne + Nagel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent salary and if you can overcome the cons it’s a good place for a newly qualified driver to gain experience before moving onto something better

    Cons

    Long hours. Long routes with too many drops. Late start to the day frequently made even later by late arrival of stock. Poorly maintained old vehicles desperately in need of renewal. Training is inadequate usually not the fault of the training teams but is seen as a nuisance to management so is frequently cancelled. As we work most weekends and work late into the evenings most days work life balance isn’t good, it’s not really a job for a family person but due to the physical aspect of the work involved it’s a young mans job. Salary was a leader in our area but now is just average. Bank holidays are worked unless rota’d as a day off and you have to do a payback day for Christmas Day which really wouldn’t wreck the company to give their staff this one day with their families without penalising them for it later. No bonus for improvements to driver standards i.e for better fuel economy etc etc etc.
