    Pros

    Great staff Family style environment among the staff You do everything yourself so great learning school to know the red flags on your next job.

    Cons

    Upper management makes very poor decision. Yet you are the one doing the work. Highly political environment. It doesn't matter how well you do your work it's about who likes you and who doesn't. Great name on a resume but do yourself a favor don't waste your time they won't promote or appreciate your work.

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits. Employees help one another. A bit of a "family" atmosphere if you will, with an emphasis put on safety.

    Cons

    The main problem (for me anyway) was the 6PM to 6AM shift. I gave it a real effort (after all, this was a great opportunity) but I was absolutely stupid by 3 o'clock in the morning. As I was in Logistics and driving a forklift in a very fast paced atmosphere, it made for some very unsafe conditions (for me as well as my fellow employees).

    Advice to Management

    Management seemed to be on the ball. however, if you would like a more diverse and capable workforce ,( while not pushing individuals to their absolute limits) consider different scheduling scenarios.

    Cut-throat work culture Lack of long term strategic vision for the company Terrible leaders, especially at senior levels Horrendous work life balance

    Invest in leadership development. Stop expecting employees to "do more with less." Reduce workload of your teams.

    Pros

    Great pay,and great benifits.And weekends off.

    Cons

    Really long hours.You're forced to sell extra products and if you don't you'll get fired.Way more stress than the job is worth.They give random safety observations (t hey follow you around all day and spy on you and watch how you work).

    Advice to Management

    Let the drivers do their job and stop stressing them out.They'll do a lot better if you did.And listen to them when they try and tell you how to help make their routes easier and more efficient.
