    I worked at Hermes for less than a year

    Pros

    Taught me respect for people working as slaves

    Cons

    EXETER, DEVON -Website advertises £10 / hour -Get hired despite showing up late and telling manager I have disability. Clearly they're desperate for vulnerable people to make their victims/slaves. -Told insurance costing ~£1 per day that you work IS compulsory & that pay is 60p-£1.30 per package. NOT £10/hour as advertised on their website. -Worked from 11am til 9pm on Saturday 14th September. 10 hours of my life. -Spent £10 on fuel, £5 on beer because the whole thing was so depressing. -As of writing 4 Dec 19, 2 months later! HAVE NOT BEEN PAID! NOTHING! ZERO! NADA! Conclusion: Lost £15 and 10 hours of my life being a modern slave for Hermes. Question: Do you want to do the same? -Looking into formal complaint processes within Herpes and with the UK GOV.
