    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Iceland Foods

    Pros

    wage is ok. otherwise steer clear.

    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.
