    Hipocracy

    I worked at Mercer Transportation

    Pros

    You actually meet some okay people.

    Cons

    Jealous people, pitiful hierarchy, no room for advancement, severe favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company makes certain exceptions for sleazy drivers. They don't enforce the same rules for everyone. If you know the right people you can get away with anything.
