    Pros

    Continuous improvement in many areas. Good pay for our area and skill level required. Nicer trucks than other companies.

    Cons

    Long working hours for night shifts, not as bad for daytime workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you are going. Much improved place to work at than 3 or 4 years ago. Better overall than when I started.

    Pros

    Great money, great people, each day was different. Good benefits, challenging, great opportunities for advancement within the company. Opportunities abound.

    Cons

    There were many days where long hours were required. Also, weather sometimes created adverse working conditions. And occasionally, unreasonable time constraints were placed on the employees.

  7. Not a bad place to work, Long as you can deal with the wintertime, you will be good. After all said n and done its a JOB

    Pros

    Good pay once you are good full time.

    Cons

    Very hard to get recognized here. Unless you are loud and joke around a lot. The ones who spend the most time taking are the ones who get recognized first.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at all your employees, and encourage and thank everyone for the hard work. Don't make empty promises.

    Pros

    Very good equipment. Day to day job was good,always very busy and time went by very quickly. Now let's get to the cons.

    Cons

    Last ten years totally down hill. Management and benifit changes,not for the better. Micro managing to the point of being ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics. Get out of the way and let your very dedicated employees do there job.

    Pros

    if your an owner or leasing its ok.

    Cons

    if your a company driver they dont run you enough to make much over 40k a year

    Advice to Management

    40k a year isn't much when you have to eat out all the time, a 35k a year being at home you make more more savings just in food, not to mention have a life. 40k is not worth otr driveing
