    I have been working at Driver's Edge

    Pros

    The pros would be the benefits you recieve and the people you get to work with when dealing with this company. The values for this company are extremly resonable and they align with my own values

    Cons

    The cons would be that they lack on personal development. Most companies I worked for always have seminars for this but this company doesn't really focus on that.

    I worked at Driver's Edge full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I could not find any.

    Cons

    NO PAID VACATION, health insurance is a joke. NO ther benefits even for the salaried employees.
    Employees are over loaded with work and expected to work late hours and weekends.
    High turn over of employees. People come in and go out on a monthly basis.
    They are constantly looking for cheap labor, so they don't care if you have great skills.
    Micro-management is the norm right from the top.
    They treat contractor personnel real bad.
    Need I say more, I got out as soon as I got a chance.
    ONE MUST BE VERY CRAZY OR VERY DESPERATE TO WORK HERE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change all of the above mentioned negatives and may be you will become a place where people would want to work at.

    Wild West mindset: Owner fires 10% of his managers evey month no matter what their performance level.

    Pros

    Agressive corporate advertising attracts many new customers every day. The owner, Mike Daniel, personally trains each new hire how his system works so that each person knows the part they play in the operation in the facility.

    Cons

    Mike continually recruits new people so that he may continously fire the lowest perceived employees. Since Mike expects instant results, this puts so much pressure on his employees that they approach the customer base with high pressure tactics to survive. There is not opportunity to build trusting relationships with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit great people and develop them into better people. You have a revolving door and your training costs are astronomical. The damage to your customer.base due to the micro management / high pressure environment you created for instant results forces you to have huge advertising costs and the model is not sustainable long term.

    Pros

    The philosophy communicated prior to and during on-boarding is that of a family-owned, Christian company with huge growth potential.

    Cons

    The reality is that turnover is well-above industry averages for nearly every role in the company from General Service Tech, to Technician, to General Manager, to Corporate Office Employees. It is not uncommon to have the average new employee last fewer than one month. No 401k, no paid holidays (except 8 hours on Christmas, when they expect 11 hour days), and if you are one of the very few that make it more than a year to earn vacation, it is lost at termination (whether voluntary or involuntary). They claim they want to keep the pay at the top with the General Managers, but in reality they find any way to avoid paying full GM bonuses that are rightfully due. Unless you a desperate for a job right now that may not be there in two weeks, keep looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operate with the integrity you profess and show employees you care. The clear lack of dedication to employees filling every role, viewing everyone as immediately replaceable and the "lifeboat" mentality serves only to guarantee your employees will not be loyal to you or your company.
