    I worked at Iceland Foods

    Pros

    wage is ok. otherwise steer clear.

    Cons

    drivers are left to get on with it, hardly any help or no help and if somethings not right you have to go through the whole lot of shopping which costs you time, expected to get all delivery's done, back to store, unload and re-load ready for the next time slot, even work through your lunch break if not finished, it just doesn't work.management not interested if your late because of traffic/ obstructions or if you cant...

    Advice to Management

    drivers need help, whole thing needs re-looking at and sorting out. not as great company as is advertised.

    I have been working at Iceland Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Can be flexible at times, pay is reasonable, love working with the customers

    Cons

    Too much expectation, over loaded, drivers no longer plan routes, new devices do it for us which makes things a lot harder. Frequently run late, little to no support from the store

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the drivers

    Former Employee - Home Delivery Driver in Huddersfield, England
    Recommends

    I worked at Iceland Foods full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was allowed to keep vehicle overnight, as had no other transport

    Cons

    due to lack of experience, time frame was punishing. Some Customers contact details were out of date.

    Advice to Management

    Verify Details and Update ASAP, used to be done in-store, now done by third-party

  5. "It was good at the start"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Home Delivery Driver 

    I worked at Iceland Foods part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, it was £9.50 p/h

    Cons

    Used to do deliveries by splitting them between two drivers via paper e.g. there would be 16 deliveries and one driver would get 8 and the other would get 8 A new system was introduced (mobile phone) which basically put all the information you needed on to that device so there was no longer for the need of paperwork. It was also your Sat Nav. Since that happenes it became a not enjoyable job. It make the job unfair...

    I have been working at Iceland Foods part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free tea and coffee, friendly environment

    Cons

    Lack of experience from management in this field creates impossible delivery runs, e.g. ETA to store on return leaves you with 5 minutes turnaround, and drivers are expected to unload empty crates, return them to store front, before sorting out their deliveries for next window. Poorly staffed. Only 4/5 drivers on childlike contracts, poorly paid - only £9.22 per hour and alot is expected. Basically like slavery.....

    Advice to Management

    Hire a transport planning clerk, scrap Route Monkey, pay drivers more, get bigger vans!!
