    Pros

    Out on my own and get work at my own pace. Can get the job done quick.

    Cons

    Can have too many deliveries in one day and get off late. Or if there is not enough stops not have any work that day.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the amount of deliveries and stops with how many are businesses/apartments. Since, some will take longer than others.
