Great pay, but contempt of management toward RSR's made morale very low

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee)

ProsPay was great, Mon-Fri work-week, great pool of talented drivers, good products

ConsAncient trucks that broke down constantly. A hostile management that was relentlessly negative. Threats of firing and write-ups delivered constantly to the whole group, whether you were doing well or not. The management was constantly berating us about hours, while over-loading us with work. The routes were not sequenced intelligently, everything seemed designed to eat up time and make us look bad so the management could say we were killing them on over-time. Basically, the management were miserable leaders who only knew how to use negativity to get results. The management were all former drivers and apparently got their positions for their willingness to sell out, and look down upon, their RSR brothers and sisters. Also they would make horrible mistakes, lose customers, and then the RSR's would be blamed. The most shameless and incompetent management I've ever dealt with, by far.

Advice to Senior ManagementFirst of all, everyone in management at my particular location, should be immediately fired and replaced with professionals who know how to motivate, inspire, and lead human beings. This includes the Big Guy at this location. I have heard G and K is not so bad elsewhere. I would certainly hope so. Peace out.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
