I worked at Ruan Transportation Management Systems full-time (less than a year)Pros
You have the opportunity to work local routes so you are home every day. The pay is better than if you work for an OTR company.Cons
I was promised a swing shift and that the dairies close at 7pm. Not once did I ever get a swing shift schedule unless you consider a 5pm to 5am schedule swing shift.
The $200 reimbursement for a gym is a joke. I submitted all of the paperwork and receipt and was never compensated.
I was let go due to an error I made that did cost the company money. Rightly so. I would like to challenge, however, that when you work on average 12 hour days (with 14 hour days sprinkled in) you will eventually become tired enough that your cognitive functioning will become impaired. This, I believe, is what happened to me. Working overnight shift, complicated with too many hours week after week, left me extremely tired and impaired my decision making skills. I would suggest the next time the company asks how we can make safety a top priority and reduce accidents, they look at how hard they work their employees and how that impacts their cognitive functioning!
Or do I need to explain to management what cognitive functioning means?Advice to ManagementAdvice
Listen to your employees. They have ideas. They are out in the field every day. They can tell you what works and what doesn't work. When you have a high rate of turnover, might it be that your processes and business model may be the culprit?Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
