    I have been working at Tree of Life

    Pros

    Nice Equipment. Nice people. Very good job benefits.

    Cons

    Senior drivers think speeding is justified when training new hires. They show no concern about your well being telling you to "follow them" at speeds in excess of 70 mph at night on a posted 55 mph highway. They are obviously "in good" with management, but this does not justify breaking the Federal Laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time the delivery time on overnight long runs and DO the Math.

    Applied in-person when warehouse moved to the Lehigh valley, PA area. Upon completion of application, the manager called me into office and held interview. He noted requirements of job and made sure I was willing to do them. After agreement, he reviewed application and verified previous experience. After interview was over, he told me he would call to set up a road test and to schedule a drug test. After completion of previous tests, I would then be sent for training.
