    I worked at Glacier Water Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company car for personal use, flexible, ease of job.There are some good people working there and stuck because have been employed so long and have no education or job skills that could use anywhere else. No real job skills required to do job. Great job for college student or retire looking for extra income but certainly not a career.

    Cons

    Management with no clue, near minimum wages, no career skills to transfer over. The turnover is so high that in my time there had seen over 30 people come and go. Many district and division managers fired and moved on to better opportunities. ou certainly cant support a family on pay offered.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and hiring management better suited to manage. Experience and education would go a long way in management. Increase pay to meet national average.

    I have been working at Glacier Water Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom of making you own schedule. Company truck, gas card, tools and phone. 10 paid holidays a year.

    Cons

    Working outside in the heat of summer and the cold of winter. My hands freeze. Never know what time you're getting off if a service call comes in.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more often. Let us know how we are doing. Provide some real training, a few days with another employee is not enough. And training in Vista, Ca for a week seemed like a waste of money although I did enjoy going to the beach.

    Pros

    Some of your coworkers are nice people who are just stuck in the same horrible employment as yourself.

    Cons

    Management is awful. They work the actual people in the lab like its a sweat shop and pay them like it too. Bonuses are nonexistent regardless of what they tell you in your interview. 401k matching is a joke. Upper management is an even bigger joke.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent management. Breaking labor laws
