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 worked at Penske

    Pros

    Opportunity to Gain Experience to then go work for a Competitor

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue what the real issues are with the organization.

    Work life balance is so-so, but no matter how much you put in or well you do it's MORE MORE MORE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nepotism and Favoritism have no place in today's workplace.

    Values have corroded in past few years. No longer a company that values customers and employees.

    It's truly a popularity contest.

    Doesn't Recommend
