    I worked at Courier Express part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed me to spend more time at home with my children

    Cons

    Had to drive my own personal vehicle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rate of pay could have been higher and company should allow for smaller vehicles to be driven

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Courier Express full-time

    Pros

    Facilities are decent and fairly good use of technology available to the industry.

    Cons

    During the hiring process candidates are never informed that they will end up on call 7 days a week, 24 hrs a day and that their job will include them performing functions they would never have agreed to. As a result, employees have very little down time and cannot make plans with friends or family because if you get called out and you are not available you run the risk of being fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management cannot continue to turn a blind eye the behavior and attitude of its mid-level and junior managers. Because a company has access to a large pool of potential employees is no reason to treat some current employees as disposable. Operating costs will continue to rise if the company is always hiring and training new employees when the alternative can be as simple as a change in management strategy.....

    I worked at Courier Express full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility of work schedule
    Lots of little perks like lunches, etc.

    Cons

    No solid training plan.
    Underpaid and overworked.
    Promised multiple growth opportunities and pulled away.
    Stress integrity, but encourage the opposite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a majority of your management structure in a region is completely replaced in less than a year, maybe it is time to look at the root cause of the turnover.

    Pros

    You get to work outside, driving all day.

    Cons

    Loading and unloading more than 2,000 pounds a day. Injure your back, and you're out of a job. Three out of nine of our employees were injured during a 2-month period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating drivers like they're completely expendable, just to save money with the customers. Also, wage theft seems endemic with the company.
