Pros

It was a good job but job secuirty was not very good. The company is in trouble and will probably not last.

Cons

Job was never safe. They should focus on making true changes at the top and not cutting desk level employees who are doing the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Save the company, make good decisions to help and maintain margin and reduce cost. Get rid of the union if at all possible.

    Pros

    Currently because of the financial difficulties not many, as a driver I am working for the most money I can make that's about it

    Cons

    every week there is a financial milestone the company has to hurdle to avoid bankruptcy, are CEO Zollars is really ineffective he was a genius when the market was going up at a 20% pace he was on CNBC every week, funny we never advanced more than 10%.
    We have given back 15% pay 15 % in hours. you don't have to worry about getting a Job here 50 % of all staff is laid off. I'm staying for the unemployment benefits and the reduced COBRA

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off half of the managers! you have consolidated the terminals but you let all the "fail" managers transfer to the remaining terminals, you have 3 people for every management position.
