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

    Pros

    It's pretty flexible and can fit around other commitments. I can plan my deliveries to suit my timetable. My field manager is very friendly and supportive and the other couriers are encouraging and generous with advice for newbies. There are some fuel, insurance and other discounts available.

    Cons

    It is what it is, which is a courier job. The pay isn't great and it can feel like drudgery at times. You don't get paid for time spent organizing your parcels into delivery order, although this takes about an hour to do. It's not for everyone.

    I have been working at Hermes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    From the moment I started I immediately felt part of the team which is fantastic considering we’ve been working from home due to the pandemic. Everyone that i’ve encountered so far has been so helpful and friendly. The managers regularly check in with you to see if you need any support and will check to make sure you’re ok. The job itself is interesting and keeps you busy with plenty of opportunity to grow. Overall my experience so far has been brilliant and I hope to have a long successful career at Hermes!

    Cons

    I haven’t got a single complaint :)
