Evri driver works out how much he makes per delivery leaving people stunned

Post by TrueBlueTerrier » ... 9-20240316

For some reason, we have a fascination with what other people earn.

As soon as you meet someone at a party and they tell you that they're a hairdresser or a lawyer or a dentist, you immediately wonder 'how much are they on?'

While some will feel comfortable enough to ask the question straight up, most of us will just ask a load of follow ups like 'how long have you been doing that for?' and 'what's your position?'

I mean, should we care how much money a person makes? Absolutely not.

But do we want to know? Absolutely yes.

Now, a man who claims to work for Evri, formerly known as Hermes, has revealed just how much he makes as a delivery driver.

In a video shared to YouTube Shorts, he said: “You’re getting 50p a collection - no matter what you’re collecting. A postable (anything you can fit though a letterbox' gets you 38p, despite some postables not being able to be actually posted.”

The driver continued: “You get 47p per packet that you deliver and there’s going to be a lot of packets.

“And your standard box gets you about 63p, unless it’s heavy or you have to use two hands because then it’s a pound.”

In another video, the man explained that thanks to one person ordering so many packets, he made £2.35 just delivering to her door.

He also revealed how much he can make in about six hours of working.

“I averaged about 130-150 parcels in that time,” he said.

Users were quick to share their views with one pointing out: “This is the problem if you wanna earn an extra £50 to £100 a week it’s a nice little quick side hustle.

“But my mate work and he earns over £750 a week because how many he does daily. Can be great money but hard work to earn it.”

And the creator agreed: “Being self employed teaches you self-worth. If you want to earn as much as you think you’re worth, then be prepared to work as hard as you can!”

The delivery driver also revealed the positive of joining around Christmas time as a lot of the items ‘were Christmas presents so much bigger’, meaning he could make more money on the job.

Though it's worth noting that this video only shows a fraction of the driver's earnings and doesn't include various admin or bonus payments Evri employees are subject to.

An Evri spokesperson told LADbible: “Couriers are at the heart of our business and all of Evri’s people are paid above the National Living Wage, with the average courier pay in excess of £17 per hour.

"Evri is committed to good employment practices, and it was this commitment that led us to be the first parcel company to introduce holiday pay, the right to guaranteed pay, an automatic pension scheme and parental leave for our couriers.

"If any courier feels that they have received pay which is different from what they were expecting, we ask that they contact their manager so that we can look into this immediately.”

We need to intervene before it's too late, reducing working hours and the load carried by workers, because it's impossible to sustain the rhythm they're forced to work at for many years."

They make it sound so great it’s like a sales pitch for Evri! What they don’t mention is that their vehicle is getting trashed while they are doing deliveries and when it goes they won’t be able to afford to fix it or buy a new vehicle. We all see these Evri delivery drivers come and go on our walks. They burn out and disappear.
