Applying to become a District Manager? Only if you like working nights, looong hours & little pay is this the job for u

District Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsYou get the late mornings and afternoons off since it's a night job.
Benefits - medical, dental and vision.
401K (although company does not match contributions anymore).
Meet interesting people every night.

ConsPay not up to par with the job requirements ($36,000 a year).
Long hours at night, sometimes working 12 hour shifts.
Supposed to get 2 days off, but not necessarily true each week.
Have to work every Sunday.
No weekends off.
Meeting service goals not always enough for upper management.
Constant carrier turnover on the newspaper routes.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your employees with the support they need to get the job done. You cannot expect a manager to throw 2 routes in one morning and then ask why so complaints are being generated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
