    I worked at Menzies Distribution full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The only good part is when you leave.

    Cons

    Horrible company who treat their drivers like they are nothing! Horrible little jump up managers . Who haven’t any management experience or skills They just sit in the office doing nothing. Apart from cigarette breaks every five minutes. They Like picking on certain weaker drivers for there bit of power. When you complain about victimisation to HR nothing is done. Avoid this company. Never any bonuses or gratitude for doing any extra hours or having to do more drops onto your already long shift.
