    I worked at Hermes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The merchandise is phenomenal.

    Cons

    They treat people poorly.

    I have been working at Hermes part-time (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.

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere and great benefits.

    Cons
