The job is what you make of it,,it used to be a great job and I loved every second,of sorting my parcels into route order,,and cracking on,,avoiding the school runs,ect..now,,with the new system software called REX,,(ROUTE EXCELLENCE),the scanner plans the route,,and you could be in the same street a number of times a day,depending on when the customer requests their delivery,,micro managing to the extreme,
The pay is good,IF you can get a 10 hour route,,but ask yourself if the stress of being controlled by the customer and being constantly harassed on the phone by the deliver manager,is really worth it?
