    Pros

    Potential to make as much money as you try to make. A very independent job, no boss looking over your shoulder, you are out driving a delivery route, so the only time you have for a boss to hawk over you is before you leave and when you come back. But if you do the job, you can get in and out, and have a stress free work place.

    Cons

    Well the weather is a big part of it. Snow/Sleet/Rain you have to deliver the product. Also, you are encouraged / rated on your upselling abilities. It's kinda awkward at times, "Hey Customer, would you like to smell our new Mango-Tango Urinal Cakes?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, there is very little potential for promotion. That isn't saying that your pay won't go up, it's just saying that after driving a loud truck for a few years, you might be ready for a new working environment, which means a new place of employment.

    Pros

    A Stable company that will provide long term job security. It does not take much to become a high performer. Very relaxed with light workloads and people are generally nice. A great place to work if you want to punch a clock and keep it as an eight to five gig.

    Cons

    A high deductable, self insured medical and dental plan is the only option and it is prohibitively expensive for non-executive employees with families. Poor overall benefits package with old antiquated processes and systems. Old school family leadership that leads to nepotisms, and a lack of opportunity that can be downright hostile. Education, pedigree, or job performance is not valued as much as tenure. Bottom line, it’s a good job but does not provide any challenges, opportunities for growth or advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times!! If you fail to adapt you will not have an adequate succession plan. If you want talented leaders in the pipeline you are going to have to sac-up and change or pay for it. Otherwise Alsco will continue to only build marginal shareholder wealth and will continue to be a mediocre company that will never become anything great among its peers.
