    Pros

    You meet a lot of different people from all walks of life

    Cons

    Routine, horrible management, software programs do not work in harmony with one another nor work properly most of the time, rude & ignorant co-workers and management, horrible pay, unsafe practices when road testing drivers have left some employees disabled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quite hiring managers who are simply bullies in a uniform, try enabling some of the temps to be hired on to full time positions, give people 2 15 minute breaks per day instead of none and more than 30 minutes for lunch, don't make the same people do road tests all day everyday....improve the pay level to attract better personnel.

    Pros

    Somehwat Safe Job, OK advancement opportunities

    Cons

    12hr work days, only 30min lunches, No support by upper management, NO RAISES IN YEARS and don't expect one anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to ask your employees what makes them happy. 12hr work days will wear everyone out one day. Look into your HIGH turn over rates and see what you can do for the employees to make them actually stay and enjoy their work.....See how they can get a raise. Food, Gas, rent and mostly everything else has increased in the last few years, but their pay has remained the same.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who go above and beyond to get customers in and out in a timely manner.

    Cons

    Work too many hours and no overtime pay.nPoor communication from headquarters. Expensive medical benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication! The communication is horrible in this agency.
    Accountability! The agency leaders need to hold themselves accountable for the poor service to the customers and to their employees.
    Work/Life Benefit- You will work,work, work. Even on your days off and hours after your center has closed. Don't expect to see your families.
