    I have been working at Estes Express full-time

    Pros

    Love the job itself. It was challenging, and rewarding.

    Cons

    Upper management sometimes had unrealistic goals.

    Advice to Management

    Your forward thinking is great, but set your goal to be more realistic.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Estes Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All the people are easy to get along with, pay is well above what they could get by with, easy work if you have the coordination skills. Constant stock of cold free water bottles for employees

    Cons

    Too many hours for some and not enough for a few. I could easily provide more to the company at the same time as gaining more hours. Proper safety gear not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Even out hours between employees, better communication to help employees improve
