    Pros

    Great pay, free products, decent working conditions, great bosses ( at certain depots ) really enjoyed the my coworker. Mostly hassle free management. Union job helped out allot. Allot of free time after the trucks are loaded. Depot management was awesome with letting you work over time and taking home product that was over ordered. you could smoke in the building

    Cons

    Allot of older drivers who were very set in there ways on how things should have been done. Surprise visits from the higher ups at any given time. No radio's in the warehouse, had to bring my own. Had to bring your own back brace or anything that would make your job easier.

    Advice to Management

    Don't like about what is going on in the company.
