    work/life balance is a challenge; selling internally as well as externally is constant; challenge with the merging of Roadway and Yellow.

    Pros

    understanding and helpful employees, simple job, a good physical workout.

    Cons

    when you are a part time employee, you are on-call. some weeks you will be offered lots of hours and other weeks you will get barely any offered to you. if they do take you on full time, be prepared to work any and all hours offered to you. as a part time employee (aka: casual) you can turn down hours. As a full time employee, you could be working 40 hours per week + depending on what the company needs.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, all of my supervisors were really nice and helpful. The only thing I can recommend is that supervisors agree upon standards for going about certain tasks and responsibilities so that there isn't a conflict of opinion.

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits and office environment. Although old technology is still prevalent, there is a concerted effort to upgrade to new. As an IT person, there are lots of opportunities to learn and be involved with the entire development process.

    Cons

    The economy and poor management decisions by a previous regime has ravaged the company's finances. All non-union employees (me) suffered a 10% pay cut and then no raises in 7 years. The company appears to be recovering, but IT folks have other opportunities; turnover is high.
