I have been working at Penske

Pros

The best reason for working at Penske Logistics is that many people here in Flint, MI are unemployed and can't find jobs. I seem to be barely hanging onto mine.

Cons

The biggest downside of working at Penske Logistics for myself is the feeling of "no hope' and "no light at the end of the tunnel". In the eight years I have been employed I have never felt secure that the Company would enjoy longevity in the field. I have seen the Company lose 50% of its business. In a trucking company, 50% of its business means 50% of its drivers unemployed. There is no apparent desire to gain new work, and I have never seen any evidence that management has tried to gain new accounts. I feel I work for a location that is destined to shrivel and dry up to nothing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If I could ask one thing of management it would be to try to find new work and to diversify the business. Think of new and creative ways to create jobs, and keep in mind that some jobs arent meant to be "cash cows", but they pay dividends as a "foot in the door".

    I have been working at Penske full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay can be good, lot's of opportunity if you are a WASP with a blue shirt and play a good golf game.

    Cons

    Management treat people like S, expect workers to bust their rears yet they tend to work under 40 hour week.

    Need to do a total housecleaning from the top down. Senior management team and most of officers in company are better suited serving coffee or donuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a man-power analysis in Green Hills. If you fired 50% of the work force on a Friday, the only thing that would be different the following Tuesday is less toilet paper would be used.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
