Delivery Driver (Former Employee) says"this is not worth the the amount of work for the amount you get paid. I have just sent in a resignation letter already because it is basically slave labor and i had to get my parents involve and they had to spend there valuable time helping me when they had a business to runThere are no pros at allunderpaid, long hours, stressful"
Delivery (Former Employee) says"I averaged at $2.5 per hours as a 15 year old years ago. This is slave labour Should be reported to the Ato, praying on young kids that should have minimum wage from $11 per hour plus benefits"
Distributor (Former Employee) says"Folding the various catalogs is a pain. Very low pay. Area rep is hostile and rude. Overall the only pro about this job is the physical exercise. Would give this company “0” stars if I could ."
Deliverer (Former Employee) says"When I bought up concerns about loose dogs in the area I got told to basically suck it up. The 'pay' is not worth it for the amount of labour that goes into folding and delivering."
Delivery Person (Former Employee) says"Didn't even get to start the job. My first delivery involved 9 catalogues for 250 houses. To put that in perspective for you, over 400kg worth of paper. Not only is that absolutely illegal, I tried to explain this to the supervisor and she spoke to me like I was the crazy one! She expected me to deliver 400kg+ of paper to 250 houses for like $40 bucks. It would have taken me probably 2 full days! Absolutely borderline slavelabour. I feel like I should report them or something!NoneRude personal, rubbish pay, illegal practises"
Distributor (Former Employee) says"Too much work for too little pay. Some days you get $10 contracts for a 3 hour walk. Some days you work 12 straight hours for a mere $30. Just enough for gas money."
Distributor (Current Employee) says"I honestly wish these people could be sued. They claim we are independent contractors when they are the ones paying us, validating contracts and tracking us, that is an employee not a contractor these idiots will be sued for modern-day slavery"
Distributor (Former Employee) says"U get little pay, for the hours and they expect you to carry heavy amounts of paper up hills and won’t allow a car to be used. They are very rude and don’t respect you. For 4 hours of work I received $10.80 and the highest I’ve received with a folding and delivering time of 10 hours I got $36.40. NOW THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. If u get one catalogue to deliver( which I have to roll about 10-300 of) u may only make $3 as the expect you to roll them in rubber bands Andy have to pay for those rubber bands"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Nightmare bad management team leaders that shouldn't be there only looking after their best interest uncomfortable ever day low pay long hours unrealistic targets!"
Delivery of catalogues (Former Employee) says"You get paid so far below minimum wage it's not a joke. $10 sort and deliver over 600 catalogue. Not even ok for young kids to do. Steps are tracked. Just shocking."
Distributor (Former Employee) says"I’d give this company ZERO stars if I could! Thought I’d give this a try... 2hrs folding... 3hrs delivering (quite quickly I might add). 3x Brochures. 16443 steps later and a whole $22? (Quite sure I’d have to fight to get paid after reading articles with similar situations in Sydney Morning Herald) To anyone reading this please avoid these guys. Nothing short of modern day slavery. EDIT: That’s $4.4/hr, with the use of your own car and mobile whilst they track your delivery."
Distributor (Former Employee) says"My friend and I are going on a holiday and thought we would get exercise while making a bit of extra cash. We each put an application and we were contacted promptly. We weren't aware we had to fold the catologues until pick up. I had to do 600 houses, each house had 6 catologues so folding was horrible and took ages even though my sister's helped out. I thought I had it bad but my friend had to do 500 houses with 16 catologues per house. So she was expected to fold 8000 catologues and deliver them all by herself within 5 days. Up to 6 people were helping her at one point and it still took hours. She told the area manager that she didn't think she could complete it and the manager told her to try her best to complete it but if she didn't have time to deliver every single catologue she would not get paid. We attempted to do it, We were told it would take 3 hours to deliver on her own but we were BOTH delivering for almost two hours and the car was still full of catologues. We did not have enough time to finish. So my friend didn't get paid for all the hours she already put in. I completed my catologues, got paid $46 for hours and hours of work. I knew the pay would be bad but the amount of time you have to put into it could go towards something much useful. You get paid less than 10c per house and no money for all the hours folding.NoneBad pay, rude area manager"
Anonymous (Former Employee) says"Company doing dodgy stuff behind your back to make a buck like selling your private information. Then they hire a cybersecurity guy warning everyone that there's been a "security breach"."
Distributor (Former Employee) says"Lots of organising, you can't miss a day, REALLY LOW pay, good if you like working from home and on your own. Not a lot of experience will be gained. --Work in your own comfort spaceLow pay"
Distributor (Former Employee) says"This job is absolutely horrible you spend many hours collating wasting space in the house to earn the money that a homeless man earns in an hour the area reps treat u like dirt and it is an exhausting tiring work experience. For you’re own well-being please go work at macdonalds if u want a real job because this is not free money it’s free slave workNothingLong hours, Treated Like a slave, No money bonuses"
Distributor (Former Employee) says"Salmat is a great place for other companies to get avitiving but the poor Distributor having to fold and deliver and each week is different cause same weeks has 10 jobs and then weeks with only 3 jobs.Pay is GoodLong Hours"
Catalogue Distributor (Current Employee) says"I delivered catalogues for this company and pay worked out to be half the minimum wage and that was jogging deliveries within my zone. PAY NOT ENOUGHPhysical work meant good exercise.Low pay, Hot outdoor working conditions, Collation and delivery time, meant 7 hours to make $42. Dogs, Bad weather, rude abusive people were part of the job also, Not paid enough for all these cons."
Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend work as an sole contractor for this company as many of their practices are unfair to their workers and too much is expected for little return."
Area Representative (Former Employee) says"Coordination of distributors and deliveries, twice a week and providing reports to management. Not a job I would recommend to anyone with weekend commitments, or those who like to holiday.Work from homeUnreasonable expectations, pay decreased over the years etc"
Call Centre Operator (Former Employee) says"They kept changing the rules, treated staff poorly, couldn't keep track of their specials for woolworths, no consistency. Woolworths had no idea how their at home sub contractor staff were treated. Management did not provide a procedures manual, they were underpaying their staff, treated staff like employees but didn't pay them as such.work form h ome.poor management, not procedures and poor treatment of workers."
