      Pros

      Often finish early, all paid for with a nice shift and time to do stuff the rest of the day. Good hourly rates and a pretty friendly workplace from my experience. Good support from managers.

      Cons

      Occasionally you get a very long and tiring shift with 100-200 miles and a lot of drops and effectively no break...

      Thanks for your review of Ocado Group! It's great to hear that you are enjoying the pay, as well as the workplace environment. In regards to your concern about lost break time, we would recommend speaking to either your line manager or your people manager (available on-site) to raise your concern with them. We will also make a note of your feedback and ensure this is passed onto the relevant team. Katie

      When you finish early you still get paid for your scheduled hours.

      Early mornings/Late nights, 10-hour turnaround shifts, and SE1 or any bad route for that matter!

      Very heavy work and low pay

      Pros

      - Autonomy - If you finish early you can go home

      Cons

      - Low pay - Promised overtime but they do not pay it unless you cross the threshold of 40 hours per week despite being on a 36 hour contract - Can be expected to delivery 900kg of shopping per day, heavy drops in the City (beers, milk and bottles water) - High risk of parking tickets in Central London which you have to pay out of wages - Treated like a number rather that an employee -

      Good perks shocking management.

      Pros

      Free parking 15% discount as well as other discounts on sister company’s Finish early still get paid ( if you can get through the van wash in less than an hour! ) Free shares if you’ve been in long enough as well as health care after a year.

      Cons

      If you work a 10hr shift ( rota) you get sent to London or the city of London most days. Vans are always dirty and have defects. 900kg of shopping to deliver everyday with flats that have no lift being the ones who order mostly bottled water and you are expected to take it up. If you raise any issue with management they will just laugh it off and nothing will get done even if it’s a health and safety issue.
